A note about Symptoms and Signs of Osteoporosis You Must Know
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Additionally, since we are becoming more and more sedentary in our living habits, this is reducing the amount of stress that is regularly placed on our bones, further lowering the overall strength and integrity that they maintain.
When you are aware of what the signs of osteoporosis are, then you can immediately take action if you see any of these present in your life, to put a stop to the illness immediately.
Here are the main signs and symptoms of osteoporosis that you should watch out for.
Earlier On Before Diagnosis
Sadly, many of the very early signs of osteoporosis are completely undetectable, which is why many people aren't even aware they are suffering from it until the condition has already progressed to a large extent.
Some of the risk factors that do put you at a higher risk of getting the condition that you should keep in mind are hitting menopause before the age of 48, not regularly taking enough calcium in your diet, not maintaining an active lifestyle where you exercise for at least thirty minutes each day, smoking and drinking alcohol regularly, having a thin bone frame, or having a high incidence of osteoporosis in your family.
If any of these describe you, you should immediately start becoming more aware of how you are treating your body because you could wake up one day to find you have osteoporosis.
Slightly later after the condition has started to develop, you may also start to notice that you have some joint pain or that your muscles ache regularly. This is often most noticeable in those who aren't active, as the joints do tend to stiffen up.
If you have a lot of pain immediately upon waking in the morning, that's also a strong sign of osteoporosis as well.
Advanced Symptoms and Signs Of Osteoporosis
If the osteoporosis does continue on without proper treatment, then some of the advanced symptoms and signs of osteoporosis you may notice are brittle bones, stress fractures, inability to perform weight bearing exercises without pain, regular back pain, and even a decrease in height.
If these are present, it's time to immediately speak to your health care practitioner about steps you can take to help prevent the condition from getting worse, so that you can still lead the lifestyle you want to.
Becoming completely debilitated by osteoporosis is a very frustrating thing, so by taking natural steps towards preventing this, such as making sure you're eating calcium-rich foods like dark green leafy vegetables, yogurt and broccoli, as well as carrying out exercise as simple as walking each day, you will put yourself in the best position to keep your bones healthy for a long time to come.
Of course, you should also stay on the alert for possible symptoms and signs of osteoporosis appearing.
