Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition which is characterized by loss of the normal density of bone, resulting in brittle bones. Brittle bones are subject to fracture.

  • If possible, try to drink natural, unpasteurized milk.
  • If your doctor has recommended calcium supplements, ask about a diet that will help you to absorb this additional calcium. Without an appropriate diet, you run the risk that the calcium will deposit itself where it shouldn’t.
  • Get to know the benefits of magnesium. Magnesium relaxes and expands the blood vessels. It is a natural relaxant. It will help you prevent stroke and combat fatigue. It might even help you manage stressful situations. It also aids in regulating blood sugar.
  • Avoid taking medications that block the action of stomach acids, because they impede the absorption of minerals such as calcium.Use dried horsetail as a tea, or fill gelatin capsules with the herb and take one or two daily. The use of horsetail dates back to ancient Greece as a remedy for excess bleeding and stomach ulcers. Modern research indicates that horsetail contains silicon, a beneficial ingredient in protecting bones from calcium loss.Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
    A decrease in bone density loss is associated with the high levels of isoflavones in this herb. There has been little scientific research conducted on the medicinal properties of this plant. Preliminary studies, however, alluded to by the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), state that an extract of red clover isoflavones may decelerate bone density reduction while increasing the bone’s mineral density.
  • Exercise
    Any type of movement helps strengthen bones. If your bones are weak, try swimming first. Walking is great for lower extremities, but the best osteoporosis exercise is weight lifting. 
    if you are concerned about osteoporosis, you have to be physically active, preferably throughout life. Walk, dance, do pushups, do yoga or stretching for flexibility, reduce smoking, and, if possible join a gym where you lift weights using all muscle groups
