Bone Health

Your body needs a balance of vitamins and minerals to help absorb calcium.  A combination of proper nutrients is what is needed for strong bones.

Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the bones, causing them to become weak and fragile and more likely to break.  Bone loss has few symptoms so the first clue may be seen when you fracture a bone.
When most people think bones, they think calcium because calcium is essential for teeth and bone development.  However, calcium also helps with blood pressure, muscle function, nerve signals and the secretion of hormones.
Even though calcium is a key ingredient for preventing bone loss it is not the only ingredient.  The key to depositing calcium is by helping the body to absorb it correctly.  Eating calcium-rich foods along with foods high in vitamin D, Potassium, Vitamin  K and exercise will help with bone density, calcium alone has little effect on the bone density.  Good sources of calcium, minerals and Vitamin D are:
Spinach, Collard greens, organic yogurt, legumes, figs, blackstrap molasses, sesame seeds, kale, seaweed and oatmeal (Vitamin D) sardines, tuna, open water fish, organic egg yolks, butter, orange juice (3 times per week).
Herbs deliver health – the best herbs to prevent osteoporosis and increase bone health is Horsetail, oat straw, comfrey and a pinch of seaweed.
Horsetail for osteoporosis
You may be asking how does horsetail work?   It works to restore bone loss because of its high levels of silica.  Silica converts to calcium. Horsetail mixed with oat straw and comfrey makes a powerful calcium tea.

Oat straw strengthens bones and teeth by stimulating cell growth
Oat straw, is also very high in calcium.  It helps strengthen the bones of people suffering  with osteopenia and osteoporosis.  Oat straw stimulates cell growth that promotes bone and teeth development.

Horsetail and oat straw tea together deliver absorbable calcium to the body
Refined white sugar, white flour products, alcohol, soft drinks, the use of steroids, and junk foods leach calcium from the bones.  The leaching of calcium occurs when the body tries to correct the acid formation in the blood and tissues of the body.   Varicose veins, muscle cramps, “Charlie horses,” tooth decay and loss and anxiety issues are all due to calcium imbalances.

Drinking 3 warm cups of tea made with equal parts horsetail and comfrey can help relieve the symptoms of muscle cramps, varicose veins, blood pressure and tooth decay.  Adding a pinch of kelp and dulse is also excellent.

It is important to remember that where there is calcium there must be vitamin D, the two work together to help the body absorb calcium.  Sunlight is still one of the best sources of Vitamin D.  We don’t need much 10 to 15 minutes of exposure three times per week will do.

Vitamin K will boost your bone density. Vitamin K and D seem to work well together as a team.
Vitamin D stimulates calcium absorption in the intestines, while vitamin K reduces the amount of calcium excreted by the body.  Vitamin K rich foods include, spinach, kale, broccoli, parsley, Swiss chard, mustard greens, brussels sprouts and Romaine lettuce.
Potassium is a mineral that we associate with nerve and muscle and removing waste from the cell. However, foods high in potassium improve bone health. So eat sweet potatoes, red potatoes with the skin, organic yogurt and organic bananas.   Potassium also works to neutralize acids that remove calcium from our body
Exercise – really!!! Exercise is key to fighting many health issues including the deterioration of bone.  Some of the best exercise is lifting light weights, jumping jacks, walking or just climbing stairs.
Protein, protein, protein, if you want strong bones, go easy on the protein.
Excessive amounts of meat, cheese and protein make body acid, which drains the body of calcium and weakens bones. Balance again, is key to good health.  Your weekly meals need to contain, open water fish, organic eggs, shelled nuts, raw seeds, fresh fruit and vegetables, and even, whole grain bread, pasta, potatoes and grains.
If you smoke, Quit
The more you smoke, the higher the risk of  getting  osteoporosis.
Cut out pre-salted foods, fast-foods, canned foods and pre-packaged foods, they are loaded with salt.
Too much salt speeds up the body’s loss of calcium.
