Hello to all of you,
I have been reading many posts on this forum and though I would share something that could make a difference for many who suffer endlessly. Without wanting to offend anyone, I would like to give couple suggestions to those of you who suffer a progressive bone diseases.
There have been many many studies showing the incredible effect that physical exercise has on reversing bone diseases, especially osteoporosis and osteopenia.
I know this may sound unrealistic to many in fear of their bones breaking but even little is enough. Things such as daily walking, gardening, lifting very light things (bottles of water 2L), yoga, simple bodyweight exercises, climbing stairs instead of using escalators. Turn every opportunity into exercise. Carry your groceries instead of using trolley. Walk more, use car less. One thing at a time.
I know this post will meet a lot of criticism and scepticism but for those of you who would be encouraged there are many videos on youtube on how to start exercising with bone disease.
Some related studies:
Addition of weight-bearing exercise program to medical treatment increases BMD more than nonweight-bearing exercise in elderly subjects with osteoporosis. Furthermore, both weight-bearing and nonweight-bearing exercise programs significantly improved the QoL of patients with osteoporosis
Other things to try:
1. Have a large bowl of mixed salad every day. Focus on greens and dark greens, they contain highest levels of naturally occurring calcium.
2. Do not take calcium supplements, they are mostly indigestibl made from stones and seashells.
3. Do not drink milk for calcium, it does the opposite, milks robs your bones of calcium because of its acidic effect.
While modern medicine is miraculous when it comes to saving lifes, surgeries and removal of tumours, it is catastrophic in helping with progressive diseases such as osteoporosis. Medications only delay a disaster.
Stay active ,stay strong and never give up on yourselves!!!
