Good Health Depends On Your Bones


"One of the most sublime experiences we can ever have
to wake up feeling healthy
after we have been sick."
Rabbi Harold Kushner

These days we have so many health concerns to think about that many people who haven’t suffered from a bone fracture or been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia are of the mind that, if it isn’t broken, why fix it?

One good reason to stay on top of bone health is that osteoporosis is one of those serious health concerns that you can actually prevent - and in some cases even reverse. This may seem surprising given the marketing campaigns of drug manufacturers that say you can only prevent bone fractures by using their products. But the truth is a natural approach to bone health that combines good nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes can strengthen bone and reverse bone loss - even in a person diagnosed with osteoporosis.

But beyond osteoporosis and fracture risk, bone plays a central role in the body’s health, and nurturing your bones at any age will benefit your body on several levels. Many people don’t know that bone is crucial in helping maintain a balance of blood nutrients. For example, calcium is quickly drawn out of bone if blood calcium levels drop to a threatening level. Bone acts as a repository for other needed minerals and nutrients too, and manages the crucial acid-base balance in your blood, all the while producing your blood cells.

The rest of the body depends on this vital, active tissue for survival. And one of the amazing aspects of bone is that it always puts the rest of your body before itself, giving of itself not only to support us, but also giving of its own nutrients and resources to maintain chemical balances in the body. Let’s take a closer look at how integral bones are to a healthy body and how you can support your bones at any age.
