Supporting Strong Bones
We specialize in women's health throughout all stages of life and see first-hand in clinical practice how the actions that you take today can impact your health in the future.
Hormones are incredibly important to bone health and as a shift in hormone production occurs throughout peri & post-menopause, many women can experience loss in bone density. So here are a few tips that you can utilize in ANY phase of your life to support your bones now and for the future (including if you are already post-menopausal):
Exercise: Activities like dancing, walking, push ups, planks, squats and jumping jacks are excellent for stimulating bone remodeling.
Vitamin D: Required for calcium absorption, you can get Vitamin D by soaking up 20 minutes of mid-day sunshine & enjoying foods such as pasture-raised eggs, wild fish & mushrooms.
Quality Fats: Fat is essential for Vitamin D absorption! Incorporate foods like wild caught fish & seafood, pasture-raised eggs, avocados, pasture-raised organ meats, sprouted nuts and seeds. Reduce Stress: Deep breathing, meditation or engaging in relaxing activities will help to lower stress and cortisol levels. (Chronically elevated cortisol can lead to bone loss.) Try THIS wonderful guided meditation. Vitamin C: Eat plenty of foods containing Vitamin C to stimulate collagen production such as citrus, pineapple, strawberries, dark leafy greens, broccoli and tomatoes. Swap Out Starchy Carbs: Keep your blood sugar balanced by swapping out starchy carbohydrates and refined sugars with alternatives like leafy greens, cauliflower rice & dark berries.
