A simultaneous immune boost and bone strengthening seems too good to be true. Guess what? It’s not. In fact, there is a scientific law that backs the previous statement. Wolff’s law states bones naturally strengthen under stress.
Additionally, the stress on bones increases the production of immune, virus-fighting cells.
Training For The Immune and Bone Boost
How do we create stress on bones and improve our health and skeletal system at the same time?
The simplest way is resistance training or jogging. You can do resistance training with body weight. Pushups, planks, and squats can be done at home or office. Make sure the intensity of the work-out gets the heart rate pumping. Doing this will ensure the stress on the bones is adequate. The best way to increase bone stress is the use of resistance bands or weights.
Stave Off Sickness And Prevent Osteoporosis
As we age, people have an increased risk of sickness and bone depletion. Doctors call bone depletion osteoporosis. The natural depletion of bone occurs in your late 20’s and early 30’s. We can prevent bone depletion with the use of resistance training, vitamin D3, and healthy diet.
Vitamin D3 is important for bone health, and it keeps us from getting sick. Fortunately, vitamin D3 is free. We absorb it from the sun. If you stay inside often, then supplementation is important. The best supplementation product is vitamin D3 with K2.
Additionally, certain foods provide us the right kinds of nutrients for bones and health. Leafy greens, nuts, and colorful vegetables and fruits pack the most nutrients. Even mushrooms contain trace amounts of vitamin D3.
The Good Kind Of Stress
Unfortunately, all stress isn’t equal. Spinal bones undergo abnormal stress when a structural shift occurs. Most people are unaware there is a normal spinal structure similar to a normal blood pressure or eyesight. When spinal bones shift outside a normal range, imbalances occur.
Imbalances will create abnormal stress on the adjacent bones. Abnormal stress will cause depletion of bones or degenerative joint disease. Depletion of joints can occur in the knee, hip, and ankle joints. Thus, it’s important to have a spinal exam to look for spinal shifts. Corrected spinal shifts will remove abnormal stress on bones.
Also, structural shifts cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, sciatica, TMJ pain, and fatigue.
You Can Do It Easily
Finally, pressure sensing cells around the bone activate the cells for immunity and bone strength. It’s easy to active those pressure sensing cells to improve your health. In addition to the other recommendations, you’ll be on your way to a bone and health boost.
