This time I write to you with a heavy heart…
Founding the Save Our Bones community has led me to cross paths with many remarkable people.
Let me tell you about a special person whom I’ll never forget. It all began two years ago, when Robina, a member of the Save Our Bones community contacted me. We began corresponding by email and a couple of months later, we met for the first time during one of my travels to Canada.
Thus began a marvelous friendship with Robina and her husband, the world-renowned Dr. Robert Bruce Salter.
I got to know Dr. Salter, both as a friend and as the Orthopedic Surgeon, professor, author, and scientist he was.
Although he held many prestigious honors such as being named one of the 10 most outstanding scientists of the past 80 years, and being inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, he remained a genuine and humble man.
I consider myself privileged for having had the opportunity to be a part of Dr. Salter's circle of friends. I have many fond memories of our conversations where he shared his knowledge with me and expressed his views with deep enthusiasm. He told me once, that I, like him, did not accept the conventional “wisdom” and for that reason and against all odds, discovered a method that works.
You see, Dr. Salter searched – and discovered – new horizons in orthopedics that improved the lives of thousands of people around the world. He revolutionized orthopedic surgery and his medical textbooks are used around the world and have been translated into six languages.
So it was with great sadness that I learned of his passing on May 10th.

His legacy is much more than new and improved joint healing methods and unique surgical techniques – Dr. Salter embodies the true essence of a brilliant mind that never settled for mainstream answers.
Dr. Salter will continue to be an inspiration to me and to thousands of others who insist on finding the untold truth about health and disease. I am truly honored by his endorsement of the Osteoporosis Reversal Program and will cherish the time we spent together forever.
My deepest condolences to Dr. Salter's wife, Robina, a dear friend of mine and faithful companion of Dr. Salter till his last breath. May he rest in peace and may all his family be blessed.
