In the big scheme of aging, our bones health often do not get the attention that they deserve. Many of us tend to relegate bone issues as secondary to other health issues as cancers and heart attacks.
Your bones require care during our youth because they reach their maximum potential in our twenties. If you don’t take care and challenge the bones, your body will decide that it is unnecessary to keep the bones strong as we get older. And that makes our body more prone to breakage or having osteoporosis.
So, how can we improve our chance of avoiding osteoporosis? Osteoporosis is not simply a disease of calcium deficiency; it’s also a disease of excessive calcium loss. The following are lifestyle choices that may lead to osteoporosis:
- too much caffeine
- carbonated beverages that are laden with phosphate
- excessive protein
- no weight bearing exercises
- no jumping
- no Vitamin D
- taking prescription drugs such as steroids that cause your body to lose calcium
A few correct lifestyle choices may be the best prescription for your bone health. If you would like to find out how our clinic in Mississauga can help you attain a better health, please call our chiropractic office at 905-821-4951.
