Join Dr. Lani's Bone Health Master Class

The health of our bones can be impacted by hundreds of things including: hormones, nutrients, medications, anxiety, depression, digestive health and even sinus infections that drain our energy, to name a few. Our overall health is dependent on healthy bones. 

Our new group will allow in-depth analysis to further educate attendees so that they can be informed consumers. The group will provide answers to your questions and suggestions for further steps you may need for your individual health situation.

Upcoming in the Master Class LIVE Webinar Series

March 13th: Osteoporosis Medications: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Jennifer Schneider MD, Ph.D and Lani Simpson DC, CCD

Dr. Schneider is a physician certified in Internal Medicine, Addiction Medicine and Pain Management. She is the author of 9 books and numerous articles in professional journals. In 2008 and 2010, she and others, presented a report to the FDA regarding femur fractures associated with long-term bisphosphonate use.

We will have a lively discussion on the topic. Both of us agree that wise use of medications is needed for some people. Are medications over-prescribed? How do medications work. What about the new medications? Is estrogen an option to halt bone loss?
