Natural preparations for osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a bone disease characterized by loss of bone mass and decreased bone density. As the elasticity and density of bones in patients decreases then the bones become more fragile, the possibility of fractures increases even in situations where normal bones would not break. Bone fractures can occur on any bone, although fractures are most common on the hips, vertebrae and lower forearm. The disease mainly affects women during the menopause (due to reduced estrogen levels). Other factors (hereditary factor) and lifestyle (smoking, alcoholism, insufficient physical activity and insufficient intake of vitamin D and calcium) also contribute to the development of osteoporosis. Regular check-ups are important because osteoporosis can be present for a long time without any symptoms. If the disease is detected in time, it is possible to significantly slow down the progression of the disease. Lifestyle changes can help prevent it. This means greater exposure to the sun (due to the production of vitamin D), the introduction of proper diet and physical activity, increased calcium intake (dairy products, sardines, salmon, broccoli, beans, almonds, sesame, orange), phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, manganese, boron and copper. Daily physical activity of at least 30 minutes a day (walking, running, aerobics, dancing and weightlifting) is recommended. Natural preparations are very effective in treating this health problem. These are Yarrow (lat. Achillea millefolium) grass tea, dried figs, egg shells, ground fenugreek seeds. Wash and dry the egg shells. Fry briefly in a pan. Grind the fried shells into a powder. Take on an empty stomach in the morning two hours before breakfast for a period of one month. You can combine the powder with lemon juice, honey and water.
