I wrote Exercise For Osteoporosis to show you how working out regularly can help prevent your bones from turning weak, leading to osteoporosis.
But before I explain to you more about how exercising can help, let's take a look at what is osteoporosis.
It is very scary.
Have you heard of the phrase "use it or lose it"? This is true especially for the bones in our body.
Our bones become stronger when there is stress placed upon them. This means that if you do high-intensity activities like rock-climbing, you are strengthening your bones.
Quite some time ago, everyone thought that having lots of calcium in your diet was enough. We thought that calcium would build tougher bones.
Now, studies have shown that it is not enough to drink milk every single day. You need to exercise for osteoporosis to be kept at bay. Exercise builds stronger bones that can absorb calcium better!
It is a win-win-win situation when you exercise.
Do not lose the quality years of your life because of this illness. You can take charge of your life. Engaging in a game of Frisbee with your family and friends could be the best thing you have ever done.
Love yourself, and treasure your life because it is simply PRICELESS.
