I fell in love with Stop the Cough formula because it provided so much relief. I caught the flu (the one that feels like mono!) that is being passed around so much this y ...Read More
Good morning Lara! I am writing this with a lot of excitement. As I was still waiting to get money to send over for my medication, God performed a miracle, I was due to receive my menses on 22nd, which did not happen. On Sunday 26th I did a home pregnancy test that t ...Read More
Beginning with our development in the womb, throughout early childhood and active youth, and all during our childbearing years, midlife changes and elder years, we must offer plenty of nourishment to our bones. We depend on our bones for their support. We are thankful for the structure they bring to our lives.
We are intended to grow, develop and maintain bones strong enough to take hundreds of pounds of pressure, yet be flexible enough to twist and turn without breaking, throughout our lives. All of the 206 bones in our bodies are in a constant state of construction, deconstruction, and repair. In the course of one year, 20% of our adult bone mass is recycled as our bones continually break down and renew themselves. Our bones are also the major storage facility for such minerals as calcium and magnesium. If we lose more minerals than we take in, we begin to lose bone mass. Pay special attention to nourishing your bones, your cartilage, your skeletal system, so it can carry you, with strength and health, to the work you must do in this lifetime.
An excellent way to nourish our bones, no matter what our age, or stage of life, is to add highly nourishing and mineral-rich herbs to your daily diet and you will see the results! Your bones, teeth, hair and nails will be strong and beautiful, and your nerves like steel. You can count on these mineral-rich herbs to be your bone-building allies. They will help to create, maintain and preserve your bone health, strength, and flexibility, even rebuilding and remodeling it, if necessary, should you suffer a break or fracture. Regular use of these bone building herbs will nourish and sustain the robustness and pliability of the skeletal frame from childhood well into old age.
Every Radiant Wonder Healthy Living Program addresses this issue, because cortisol, created by the adrenals when you are stressed affects so many other body functions. Repeated studies have pointed at how stress adversely affects bone mineral density, which is the amount of mineral matter per square centimetre of bones. Dr Pradeep Bhonsle, Head of Orthopaedics at KEM Hospital, says stress plays a critical role in slowly, but steadily, bringing about the onset of osteoporosis. When your bone tissue is constantly remodelled within the body, the show is run by two cell types: osteoblasts that help in depositing new bone tissue and osteoclasts that break down old bone tissue.
Dr Bhonsle says, "Your bone density is determined by the rate at which these cells work. Under stress, our adrenal glands increase the production of cortisol. Cortisol, known as the 'stress hormone' as it's released by the body in response to stress, can decrease bone density by inhibiting the bone-building osteoblasts." With decreased osteoblast activity, the body ends up with more broken down bone tissue than deposited, causing low bone density and eventually osteoporosis. Interestingly, America which figures among the countries with the highest calcium intaike in the world, has the highest incidents of osteoporosis.
Every bone program is built with a de-stressing formula and special exercises to both energize and release stress.
