Known, that osteoporosis is more common in women, than men. Before that, it was considered, that lack of calcium is associated with hormonal imbalance in menopause women. However, it is not.
After 50-55 years, not every woman goes to a medical institution with osteoporosis. Let's look at the causes of calcium deficiency in the body.
Osteoporosis: General information
Osteoporosis is a disease, manifested by increased bone loss, weakening of the bone structure and a high tendency to fractures. The disease is more common in the elderly, as well as in menopausal women.
Osteoporosis is considered a serious pathology of the bones of the knee joint., spine, hip joint, upper and lower limb bones. Has low bone mass, change in bone structure, high risk of brittleness, tendency to break.
Many doctors call osteoporosis “calm killer”, because for several years it does not manifest itself in any way, i.e. no symptoms. During this time, the patient does not experience a gradual decrease in bone mass., which will soon lead to unexpected fractures even under light load.
Causes of osteoporosis
Calcium, an important element for bones, like any other, enters our body with food and is very important, for it to be adopted. Otherwise, problems start., associated with osteoporosis.
Primarily, need to pay attention to ordinary products, which we use. As it is known, main sources of organic calcium are red meat, kefir and a number of other fermented milk products, fish, cottage cheese, milk, cottage cheese and sour cream.
Get checked out by a doctor and find out, how well calcium is absorbed in your body, to rule out digestive problems.
Indigestion in Tibetan medicine is called "smear", i.e. indigestion.
This condition sometimes proceeds according to the so-called "hot" type., if the daily diet is dominated by meat, fried, smoked, acute, salty and very fatty foods, and there is alcohol.
It is very irritating to the liver., causing it to synthesize an excess amount of bile, digestion is rebuilt, frequent loose stools appear, and the food seems to fly out of the body.
This phenomenon occurs in people, pertaining to the constitution “Bile”. They are very active, impulsive, explosive, demanding, touchy, emotional, lean or stocky with flushed cheeks even in old age.
Other features “gall” man: bright, eyes that radiate energy, whose sclera give off yellowness, oily facial skin, warm hands and feet, tendency to hair loss.
Too many toxins accumulate in the blood, contributing to the development of varicose veins “hot type” due to saturation of blood vessels with hot elements. Urine with a strong odor, she has a bright yellow color.
The stomach of such people has a lot of mucus, they are lethargic, slow digestion with frequent constipation.
This is due to the consumption of cold foods., increasing mucus: dairy products from the fridge, porridge, potatoes, flour products, sandwiches with ham, everything is cold.
It would seem, everything is fine: high in calcium. But due to the large amount of mucus in the stomach and intestines, normal digestion and absorption of useful trace elements is impossible., including calcium.
At “cold” lack of spices, salt, which not only warm food, but also improve digestion by stimulating the production of juices and digestive enzymes.
And some are addicted to drinking water, which also applies to cold products. Even at room temperature, the water temperature is below body temperature by 12-14 degrees.
Imagine, how much energy is needed to warm it up to body temperature. Drinking cold water with cold food, there is no chance of normal digestion.
In this state of affairs, the blood is saturated with toxins., metabolism slows down, veins are affected with the development of cold-type varicose veins.
Such professions are more susceptible to this, like waiters, teachers and hairdressers, long standing.
Nutrition and digestion are unstable, they suffer from bloating, constipation and diarrhea, belching and gas in the intestines.
“wind people” eat on the run, eat fast food (sandwiches, juices). Occasionally overeat, because during the day they get carried away with something and forget to eat on time.
Is addicted to alcohol. coffee, sweet, tea and smoking. It leaves its mark on digestion.
