4. Calcium-rich food:
Calcium is one of the essential nutrients to build good bone health and protect them from ailments. Calcium, along with phosphorous, helps strengthen bones and increase bone density. So, it is essential to consume calcium-rich food items like milk, milk products, nuts (almonds), soybean, tofu, and green leafy vegetables. If you have low calcium levels, you should consult an Ayurvedic doctor and take the required supplement or treatment.
5. Abhyanga (self massage):
Abhyanga is a savior when it comes to bone and muscle health. Ayurveda recommends the daily practice of Abhyanga as a part of your dinacharya (day ritual).
It helps to relax the muscles and relieve pressure from the bones & joints. It is also beneficial to improve blood circulation. Due to this, it helps in a better supply of nutrients and oxygen to the bones. As a result, it reduces joint pain and also prevents osteoporosis.
If you do not take care of your diet correctly, your bones become brittle due to aging. So, it is essential to add ghee to your meals and keep up with a diet rich in calcium & other essential nutrients like Vitamins K & D, phosphorous, etc. Apart from this, it would be best if you make abhyanga, sunbath, and strength training as a part of your routine. If you are going through menopause or facing issues like joint pain, stiffness, weak bones, low bone density, or osteoporosis, try these tips and observe the change in your bone health.
