Natural Progesterone And Osteoporosis Treatment SuccessWritten by David Buster
Using natural progesterone and osteoporosis was successfully treated? Is it possible? After all, natural progesterone is safe with virtually no side effects when used correctly. It is one of two primary hormones produced in a healthy woman during menstrual cycle, other hormone being estrogen. In perhaps only study of natural progesterone and osteoporosis treatment of its kind, success obtained by a leading Harvard-trained physician for reversing osteoporosis in women is explained.
What is osteoporosis? Osteoporosis is a progressive disease where bones become more porous and weaker over time. Untreated, osteoporosis will weaken, disable and kill both women and men. Almost half of women in United States will fracture a hip, forearm or spine sometime in their lifetime. 20% of women who fracture their hip will die within one year. And it is not just a disease of elderly. Osteoporosis regularly begins its destructive process for women in their thirties. Becoming slightly shorter in height is most noticable of osteoporosis symptoms. Osteoporosis causes postural changes, and it makes one more likely to have a bone fracture as one ages.
There are two kinds of bone cells that one should understand. Osteoclasts are cells that travel through bone tissue, finding bone tissue that needs replacing, removing old bone by dissolving it and leaving small cavities or pores where there once was bone. Osteoblasts are cells that form new bone cells in cavities left by dissolving tissue. This continous process of bone resorption and new bone formation is how bones are kept strong in healthy body. Bone strength is result of balance of these two processes. Osteoporosis happens when more bone tissue is being dissolved than is being rebuilt.
When are bones strongest in women? Bone strength is greatest at around age 30 for women. Bone loss typically begins in women 5-20 years before menopause. Osteoporosis occurs regularly in both women and men. Even though a man begins to lose bone mass considerably later in life than a woman, bone loss happens in men. Women often begin losing bone mass as early as in their thirties, whereas bone loss begins in fifties for a man. By time men reach their seventies, their bone weakness equals that of women.
There's More To Fitness Than How Much You Weigh.Written by Britannia Findlay
Something that most people don't realise is that physically there is little correlation between fitness and weight. Your weight does not define how fit you are. Obviously if your weight is too high it has an effect on how fit you are, and it certainly has an effect on your health but relation between weight and fitness is nowhere near as strong as most people believe.
The only true test of fitness is how much exercise you can do. As your fitness improves, you will have greater stamina and be able to do more exercise. And as your fitness increases you will almost certainly start to lose weight.
If your goal is to not only lose weight, but to keep that weight off, and to keep it off in a natural way - not using some fad diet - then you should look at increasing your overall fitness level, and level of exercise you get everyday. Diet and exercise go hand in hand, diet will not be truly effective without exercise.
If you start with exercise, then you'll begin to build and tone muscle in your entire body first, instead of just trying to burn away fat. In fact, worst thing you can do is to start on a diet first without exercise. Instead of burning away your fat, in that case, chances are good that your body will burn muscle tissue instead. That is something that you definitely don't want to happen, since it will make exercising harder for you in future.
If you exercise regularly you will be more fit than somebody who gets no exercise, this holds true no matter what your respective weights are. So no matter what diet plan you begin you should accompany it with extra exercise.
