The numbers are staggering! Globally, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures per year – resulting in a fracture every 3 seconds. Approximately 75 million people in Europe, USA and Japan are diagnosed with this preventable health crisis. The truth is osteoporosis is avoidable without drugs or expensive treatments by bringing the body chemistry back into balance.
Is your body in pH balance?
According to Nancy Appleton, Ph.D., “when the body is in homeostasis, the pH (acid/alkaline) balance is correct, the minerals are balanced with each other, the endocrine glands secrete the right amount of hormones into the bloodstream, and the body hums along.”
“With an upset body chemistry, the pH becomes either too acidic or too alkaline, the mineral relationships become upset, and the endocrine glands secrete too much (or not enough) of their hormones.” Simply put, eat a diet rich in nutrients; avoid processed foods; don’t smoke; stay active and develop healthy relationships to enjoy healthy bones.
Chronic stress can destroy your bones
The endocrine system (located throughout the body) secretes hormones into the blood and helps regulate body chemistry. If you want to prevent bone loss – do NOT stress your adrenals, pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary and gonads. Over time, the meals we eat and how we emotionally react to situations in our life – dramatically influence our physical health.
There are many stressors that can deplete our body of minerals and increase our risk for osteoporosis plus many other degenerative diseases. The mineral balance of our body is affected by our emotional well-being, blood sugar levels, mental stress, physical pain plus much more. Do everything you can to minimize (chronic) stress from your life and watch how fast your body can heal itself.
