Some of the bone and joint conditions we are able to effectively improve include, but are not limited to:
During times of injury we are best able to heal when our minds are relaxed and our bodies have the correct balance of nutrients for repair to take place. The addition of carefully chosen foods and/ or supplements can ensure that the rate of healing takes place maximally without causing undue pain and stress.
Osteoporosis and Osteopenia
Most people know that calcium is involved in bone strength but it is not so commonly known which forms optimise absorption; nor the other nutrients that play a huge role in bone health such as vitamin D, magnesium, boron, zinc, vitamin K and others. Bone health is negatively impacted on through physical inactivity, poor diet and/ or poor absorption of nutrients as well as a long list of medications. With peak bone mass being reached at around age thirty it is certainly worthwhile considering bone density as a part of your overall health for all ages. In the event that you have been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis we can hone your treatment regime to give you the best possible outcome.
