Our Skeletal system is alive! Like our organs, it has blood supply and nerve supply. Did you know your bones do more then just give your body support and protection? Other key roles our bones have is: key player in our immune system, forms red blood cells, stores minerals, helps control blood sugar and as we know works with muscle to allow movement.
Our skeletal system is in a constant state of renewal with the direct help of it’s friends the thyroid, the para thyroid and the pancreas. The maintenance of bones first requires old bones to be dissolved by “osteoclast” cells then new bone is formed via “ostoblast” cells.
As you can see, healthy bones are vital in our over all health. Our skeletal system demonstrates the interdependence interconnection and relationship of the systems and organs of the body.
The best way to protect your bones:
1. Weight bearing exercise – pounding stimulates bones
2. Eat real food -a balanced diet rich in calcium, magnesium, vitamin K1 -leafy greens and K2 – Fermented natto.
3. Get plenty of Sunshine Vit D3
4. Control how you react to stress in your life..Cortisol depletes immune function which interferes with bone marrow function. Anyone ever get sick after a big test or stressful time in their life?
Remember one body with 5!
All the Best,
