disease called osteoporosis from striking a growing number
of victims, doctors are recommending higher levels of calcium.
But despite an increased intake of calcium, many still fail

to properly assimilate calcium from common sources.
is a known fact that calcium is better assimilated in the
presence of vitamin D. This vitamin is most commonly found
in sunlight and cod liver oil. Vitamin D aids in maintaining
the proper balance between calcium and its counterpart phosphorus.
Improper calcium and phosphorus levels can lead to arthritis,
osteoporosis, and circulatory problems. The cod liver oil

Alexander, a known researcher in the field of nutrition and
especially the benefits of cod liver oil, has earned the name

other. Many people who had been unable to walk noticed improvement
within a few months after using the Dale Alexander cod liver
oil method. The good news spread and supplies of cod liver
oil could not be kept on pharmacy shelves. In trying to find
a cure for his arthritic mother, hen had stumbled on "something"
which had been overlooked by others.
two doctors, perhaps to settle the argument, or perhaps to
disprove his theories, conducted a scientifically acceptable
study, using the Alexander method. To the surprise of everyone,
except Dale Alexander, they found in nearly every patient
