Expert Holistic Treatments of Underlying Causes to Achieve Optimum Health

Osteoporosis impacts the lives of 3 million people and causes 500,000 bones breaks a year in the UK alone.  Yet fewer than 2 in 10 bone breaks get follow-up tests or treatment, we feel this is unacceptable.

 

Prof Sir Graeme Catto, Dr Taher Mahmud and Colleagues set up LOC to proactively screen, diagnose and holistically treat the underlying causes.  Negative outcome is not inevitable and treatment does not have to be life long.
