Preventing Bone Disease in Healthy Aging


Each day we live, we grow older failing to see that our bones and muscles demand activities to continue strength, endurance and resistance to life’s nasty living demands. Our bones need continued activities through out our lives starting as a child. Until we turn 30, the bones continue to build. After this age, the bones begin to disintegrate. You can cutback this degeneration process by taking care of your bones in youthful days.

How it is achieved:
Bone health is achieved through activities, such as exercise. In addition, you maintain healthy bones by increasing calcium. Supplements are available, which include the FDA marked remedies to help reduce bone loss from natural aging.

Taking calcium is very important during our entire life. Children should drink 2 cups of milk each day and adults 3 cups. Calcium in food is better to take than pills because you get more of it; food sometimes doesn’t have the right amounts in it due to the way it has been processed. Get that calcium in your body at an early age and keep it there. Besides calcium however, your bones demand a mixture of magnesium. You will also need a healthy dose of phosphorous. Vitamin D facilitates calcium to flow through the bloodstream. Free flowing bloods make a healthier you.

To improve bones, we also need to start at an early age getting plenty of vitamin D. As we get older, we have a tendency to stay out of the sun more. Don’t sit in the house all day. Rather try to get outside around noon and get some sun with all those vitamin D rays. Supplements can be used but again the sun is better. Maybe take a walk for 15-20 minutes each day to get the sun.

As we aging into the later years of our life, we have to keep those bones strong. You can benefit from weight bearing works, such as walking. Keeping those bones strong will help you survive falls. Falls is one of the leading reasons of bone breakage or fractures, especially as we grow older.

Unfortunately, adolescents don’t realize the importance of taking care of our bones. As these adolescents pass puberty however, their bones start to decline. Once a person reaches 50, the bones start to deteriorate, which puts you at high risk of fractures, disease and breakage. As the bones weaken, the muscles and joints will also degenerate. Injures then can lead to gouty arthritis, arthritis, osteoporosis and so on.

The high-risks of bone fractures are charted, which include hip fractures being the most common injure amongst the elderly. Hip fractures may sound like a minor ordeal, yet the truth is hip fractures are responsible for some deaths.

Weak bones are avertable even once you are middle age. It’s never to late to repair or mend our bodies.

Staying fit is the key to preventing risks of disease, hip fractures etc since the bones will stay healthy. In view of the fact, you want to consider a daily schedule, which includes activities and exercise. You want to keep those muscles free to move, since the muscles protect the bones. Stretch workouts and exercise will prevent your joints from feeling stiff as well, which joints support the muscles and bones.

When you exercise you, maintain weight. As you start to age, the body fat increases to more than 30%. This is too much added weight for the muscles, joints and bones. Carrying around this kind of weight on the feet, legs, etc will cause problems later. Maintaining your weight will help prevent and lower your risks of heart disease, bone disease, high-blood, high-cholesterol, diabetes and so on.

New Adventures in Healthy Aging

Life is just another adventure if you really look into its channels. On the first day we are born, we begin a new adventure to healthy aging. After a while, we take our first baby step. Our muscles, joints and bones have already started its progress of aging. Yet, we continue to use our muscles, joints and bones throughout our life to balance our weight. As we reach puberty, despite the notion that we maintained activities the muscles, joints, and bones begin to degenerate. After puberty the declination continues, which our body and minds start weakening.

Throughout our life, we depend on soluble fats to reduce heart disease. We depend nutrients that prevent high cholesterol, which affects so many of us by not eating and exercising correctly. We understand that incorporating the right amount of fibers into our bodies daily will add bulk to our stools. It will speed up to come through and out of our body. High-Fiber diets are something we rely on to slow cholesterol in which the liver produces. We use fibers to keep down the levels of cholesterol, which if increased we know can block the arteries.

Throughout our youthful days, our body changes, yet as we reach age 35 the same body we took time to maintain starts to decline, i.e. the bodily functions start to decline despite the notion that we took time to provide what our bodies needed. Along some time in our life we ask, do I need to lose weight? Many of us ask these questions followed by food binges, ignoring meals, and sitting on the couch hoping that we lose weight. Well couch potatoes, you missed the point, yet help has arrived. High fiber foods links to potential weight loss and control. Because fibers carry through our bodies, it takes some excess calories along the way. Foods that are high in soluble fat are more filling, we eat less of them, and there is the lost of more calories. When trying to lose weight be sure to consult with you doctor before hand, because it might not be the best choice for you. Diet supplements can be harmful even the fiber ones.

Our journey continues:
As we reach 40, we start to look back. Throughout our life journey, we have established a residence, vehicle, children, and more. Now that we are older, we find it harder to maintain or keep up with the bills. Seems the harder we try, the more difficult it becomes. You might say I can’t afford to live here anymore by the age you reach 50. The home taxes, maintenance, etc is weighing you down. You start to wander in your mind, what should I do. First, you must ask, do I enjoy traveling and meeting new people while learning at the same time?

At this time, you begin because your situation requires adjustments. You take moments out of each day dwelling on what you need to do. You check into your community to find low-subsidized housing for seniors. You realize that one day; you may be that senior resting a community housing arrangement. If you vision this now, take action instead of waiting until you are too old to do something about your situation. Unfortunately, many older folks lose their homes, belongings, vehicles, insurance etc as they grow older, which causes them to sink into the world that leads to death. Now is the time to save your future by checking into community housing for seniors. Learn what these facilities have to offer you. In addition, if you like to travel why wait until you are too old to move. Your local travel agent to see if they have any outings planned in the future, that you might like to take. Some times travel packages are cheaper and nicer because they make the entire plan and you just go along with the flow of things. Traveling can be educational as well as a relaxation time for you. Seeing new things and meeting new people are both education. Seeing and going to new places you’ll be learning about things and meeting new people you’ll learn how others live and enjoy their life. Who knows socializing with others may build your relationships up for more fun and relaxation.
