Your bones are as alive as you are. Often mistaken for something hard, brittle and lifeless, bones are the building blocks of our body, without which we would be nothing but a lump of mass which does not have a support system to hold it up together. The human skeleton is made up of bones and it’s these bones which provide structure and balance to our body. Significantly, bones are more than structure blocks as they are also the storehouse of essential minerals that our body needs, the most important of which is Calcium. Calcium is one such mineral which is constantly being broken down and rebuilt in our bodies through a process called resorption. New bones are thus produced through this process at different stages of life.
Bones can be kept in the optimum healthy condition by exercising regularly and following a healthy diet regime. But all the exercise and diet in the world cannot prevent the erosion of bones as we get older. Aging is a natural process and therefore with age the strength of the bones also decreases due to erosion of the bones. But under certain conditions, bone loss may be more severe for certain people than others. As a result of which the bones are severely weakened and so is the skeleton. The skeleton becomes deformed a bone density also experienced at certain places. If the condition worsens then it could lead to the bones becoming very light and frail, so much so that they become brittle enough to crack and break under the body’s own weight.
This condition is known as osteoporosis. In medical terms, osteoporosis is an ailment of the bone in which the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced. This leads to a low bone mass in the body and a deteriorating bone tissue. Bone mass (bone density) is the amount of bone present in the skeletal structure. The higher the density the stronger are the bones. Genetic factors also influence bone loss and so do the environmental factors. The treatment of osteoporosis should be administered as soon as the signs of bone loss are observed or felt. If left untreated, it could become a severe problem and lead to breaking of bones. These broken bones or fractures occur typically in the hip, spine, and wrist areas. Such fractures can be either in the form of cracking (as in a hip fracture), or collapsing (as in a compression fracture of the vertebrae of the spine).
The following suggestions will help you treat osteoporosis effectively:
• Regular exercise to maintain good bone health
• Calcium-rich food
• Having a correct body posture
• The consumption of milk and milk products
The consumption of certain natural herbs may also help achieving a healthy bone structure, some of which are:
• Dandelion Tea
• Red Clover
• Chaste Berry
• Dong Quai – A Chinese herb
