My patients hardly ever ask for help about this, but they absolutely should…
Because as harmless as it seems, losing your balance can be DEADLY.
Think about it… women spend more time in the hospital from falling and osteoporosis than:
- Myocardial infarction (aka heart attack)
- Breast cancer
The truth is that falls can easily lead to death. You might not even make it out of the hospital.
It’s just that most people don’t think about it.
If you haven’t, you absolutely need to start.
Today I’ll share with you the SECRET to staying upright as you age!
Senior falls are far more serious—and common—than you think
Weakening bones and loss of balance happen naturally as a part of aging. It’s an undisputed fact… so long as you don’t do anything about it.
A shocking 33 percent of women and 20 percent of men will have an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetimes.
These happen especially in people over 45.
Now, there are any number of reasons why these factures can become deadly, but the biggest is because it can cause a loss of physical activity and a lower quality of life…
Many get DEPRESSED because they have to rely more on others, lose their social life, or get moved into an “old folk’s home.”
But there’s a simple strategy you can use to keep this from happening.
The keys to staying upright throughout your years
If you think weak bones are a reason you should stop exercising, you’re wrong…
It may be counterintuitive, but putting weight on your bones makes them STRONGER.
Walking can certainly help, but not as much as yoga or dancing…
Both add stress to your bones and your muscles.
And both have the added benefit of building up your stabilizer muscles– the ones you rarely ever use in daily life. These muscles are responsible for preventing falls!
That’s only half of it though.
Your bones also become weak because, as we age, we have a much more difficult time absorbing and using calcium, vitamin D3, K2, and magnesium. There’s a good chance you’re not even getting enough of these vital nutrients that form the building blocks of your bones.
There are many supplements that contain calcium and vitamins D3 and K2 in a single bottle.
Just make sure to add some magnesium to round out the formula.
By the way, you can get all four of these nutrients for well under a dollar a day!
