Ten Tips to Support Musculo-Skeletal Health
Drink water throughout the day, adding fresh lemon whenever possible. Goal is 1qt per 50 lbs of body weight. Supports healthy cartilage and reduces waste build-up that irritates nerves.
Take a magnesium supplement of 100-400 mg/day (citrate and malate are best). This helps relax muscles and nourish nerve cells.
Use Essential Fatty Acids like Omega 3 or Super GLA, and drizzle Flaxseed oil over salads, steamed vegetables, or morning oatmeal. Try to get 2 Tbsp/day, refrigerate, not for cooking.
Eat regular meals that include protein to maintain blood sugar balance and regulate moods. Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Queen, and dinner like a Pauper (lightest of all). Make healthy snacks available all the time, carry them with you to keep away the temptation of junk food.
Increase consumption of dark green leafy vegetables to 2-4 servings a day. These are rich in easily absorbed minerals, which nourish nerve and muscle cells. Blend a green food powder supplement such as Ultimate Green Zone into a protein drink.
Take a media break while you eat, take a break from TV, radio, newspapers and computers. Consider making mealtimes a contemplative time-out. Use candles or music to encourage relaxation, good digestion, and looser muscles. Take time to chew each bite to a liquid paste.
If you consume caffeine every day begin exploring healthy and tasty alternatives. Caffeine creates tight muscles and tight muscles lead to pain. Try roasted herb coffee substitutes like Herbal Beverage, and mineral rich herb teas. If you need caffeine to get you going, drink small amounts of green tea or mate, which has a little caffeine. Gradually reduce coffee and black tea over a couple of weeks until you no longer need it.
If you consume sugar products regularly begin exploring nutritious alternatives such as baked yams with maple syrup, apple and almond butter, goat cheese and dates.
Take extra vitamin C (2-3 grams/day), making sure it is a whole food vitamin C and not just ascorbic acid. Citrus Bioflavonoids with vitamin C will help build collagen and is especially nourishing for the adrenal glands, reducing stress response. Take to bowel tolerance.
B-vitamins nourish the nervous system and help the liver detoxify stress hormones. Take a supplement that includes at least 20 mg of each of the B's. Single B's will push the other B's out of balance when taken for extended periods.
