When our Divine self is suffering with any health issue, it is our body crying out for help, urging us to take a look at all areas of our life. We may think we are eating the right foods, taking the appropriate vitamins, and doing “all” the right things. But are we?
Recently I’ve gotten some messages from readers who have asked about bone loss and osteoporosis. Specifically they are worried about doing the right things: what they should be eating, if there are supplements they should take, and what else they can do to protect their bones and prevent osteoporosis.
I like to look at bone loss and osteoporosis from two perspectives: the spiritual and the physical. They are connected!
On a spiritual level, bone loss is about the disappearance of your infrastructure. When you lose close friends or family members or a treasured job, you feel a loss. You no longer feel supported or safe.
Similarly, when your bones begin to become less reliable or strong, you may experience a lack of support. When you begin to believe this way, your body can start to manifest your thoughts. You may begin to withdraw into yourself or neglect yourself by eating poorly, not getting enough sleep, or not exercising.
That’s when it’s important to make lifestyle changes so you support your infrastructure to keep up with the changes your body is going through as you get older, such as bone loss and osteoporosis.
That’s where the physical and lifestyle changes come in, and this is true regardless of age.
The truth is, although we usually think of osteoporosis as something that affects older women, you need to think about it RIGHT NOW, no matter your age.
