About Dr. Lani Simpson

Dr. Lani Simpson & Boney the Skeleton

Over the past 30 years, Dr. Simpson has established herself as one of the leading experts in women’s health care. Her clinical experience and her multi-disciplinary approach have enabled her to educate thousands of clients and professionals about some of today’s most common health challenges for women.

Dr. Simpson is a chiropractic doctor and a Certified Clinical (bone) Densitometrist (CCD). The International Society of Bone Densitometry awards the CCD certification to those who have demonstrated (through an exam) a mastery of an approved body of knowledge in osteoporosis diagnosis though DXA and CT scans, peripheral x-ray devices, and ultrasound devices. A CCD is required to demonstrate proficiency in reading and analyzing bone density test results, bone related lab work, and medications used to treat osteoporosis. Dr. Simpson was the first alternative doctor to be awarded this certification

Dr. Simpson produced and presented "The Heat is On! Menopause and PMS seminar" to health care professionals for the past 15 years. This twelve-hour continuing education course is offered at various venues throughout the United States and has been reviewed and accepted by state boards of chiropractic, acupuncture, nursing, licensed marriage and family therapists, and naturopathy.

Dr. Simpson's presentation topics include:

  • Down to the BONE! - It is never to early or too late to gain quality bone mass
  • Digestive Disorders - diagnosis and alternative treatments
  • Menopause and PMS - balancing hormones
  • Endocrine-disrupting chemicals in cosmetics

From 1984 through 1997, Dr. Simpson maintained a successful chiropractic practice. During the early 90's, she observed that many of her female patients were frustrated and confused about what to do regarding symptoms of menopause, PMS, osteoporosis, and other health concerns. In 1994, she co-founded the East Bay Menopause and PMS Center and the Osteoporosis Diagnostic Center in Berkeley, CA.

Together, these centers included chiropractors, medical doctors, and acupuncturists. This integrated and holistic approach allowed patients and doctors to work together to combine the best options from alternative and Western medicines.
