Many people with bone problems believe that taking more calcium will solve this. But this is a mistake. It is about taking more calcium, but to adapt your diet to have the necessary ingredients to metabolize all the nutrients. The main things you need to do is include in your diet are steamed vegetables, whole grains and papaya or pineapple in the morning and without combining with any other food. At night you should eat raw or cooked apples. You should drink enough water, two liters a day, and include supplements such as brewer's yeast, olive oil extra virgin, horsetail tea (two cups a day, twenty minutes after eating) and chia. It is important to avoid refined sugars and starches as well as cow's milk and products with preservatives.
Even if you feel you have no force or moving hurts, you should try to follow a proper exercise routine, which let you move your legs and arms gently. If you do not move, your bones will atrophy more. So soft you exercise, lie down on the bed and raise and lower your leg straight, move your ankles in circles. If you have trouble walking, you have to go slowly, and when you do, try to enjoy the walk. If you are at home and cannot get out, mentalize that you will enjoy every step.
Are you afraid of falling or walking? This is common and you should not worry, but deal with it. If you feel fear, you need to create your new mental and emotional attitudes in your powerful computer called mind.
