“What happens is many doctors themselves, unfortunately, aren’t aware enough of the whole list of medications that cause problems.”

–Dr. John Neustadt



Dr. John Neustadt was the founder of Montana Integrative Medicine, the founder and president of the dietary supplement company, Nutritional Biochemistry Incorporated, NBI, and of NBI Pharmaceuticals. He hosts the Delivering Health Podcast and is a member of the Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation Corporate Advisory Roundtable.

He’s written books, dozens of articles on osteoporosis, and over 100 research reviews. He was recognized by Elsevier as a Top Ten Cited Author in the world for his work. His latest book, which I just absolutely love, Fracture-Proof Your Bones: A Comprehensive Guide to Osteoporosis, recently came out and is filled with so much fabulous information.

In this episode, Dr. Neustadt discusses commonly used medications that can increase your risk of osteoporosis.
