Osteoporosis Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring
Osteoporosis is a multifaceted disease characterized by excessive bone loss. There are nutritional, lifestyle, hormonal and mechanical factors that affect its progress. Most osteoporosis treatment emphasizes nutrition and medication: supplementation of minerals (especially calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and boron), vitamin D and hormones (remedying deficiencies of estrogens, natural progesterone or calcitonin and excess cortisol). It is also recommended to stop smoking cigarettes. Finally, weight-bearing exercise is advised.
Cells in the bone known as osteoclasts reabsorb bone, and cells called osteoblasts secrete bone. They are present all the time in living bone, existing in a state of dynamic equilibrium. When the osteoclasts are more active, the area experiences bone loss, and when the osteoblasts migrate into an area, there is bone growth. The assumed mechanism with osteoporosis is this imbalance, with excessive activity of the osteoclasts or a lack of activity of osteoblasts. Hormones are used to correct this imbalance. Certain vitamins and minerals provide all of the nutrients needed to make bone, covering any deficiencies that may exist. Weight-bearing exercise is used because gravitational forces stimulate osteoblasts, while lack of gravity increases osteoclast activity.
NeuroCranial Restructuring dovetails into this picture dramatically because it improves postural patterns. As the postural pattern improves, the amount of weight carried by the skeleton increases. With increased gravitational weight in the bone, the activity levels of the osteoblasts increase. So NeuroCranial Restructuring addresses the gravitational problems of osteoporosis elegantly. Improved posture makes physical activity easier, leading to a further increase in skeletal weight bearing, producing even greater amounts of stronger bone.
