Tea for Bones
Help to Speed Up Recovery
How to chose an herbal tea for bones, nails and tissue health?
Accidents happen and over time, our bodies take more time to heal and need help to heal properly.
As kids, sprains and breaking bones comes a bit with the territory of playing and exploring the world around us. However, as we age, bones tend to become more fragile and break more easily as our bodies retain less calcium, leading to a disease called osteoporosis.
The onset of this disease could be prevented, or at least delayed, with the help of some calcium and silica rich herbal teas. And if an accident does happen, drinking or applying these infusions could help speed up recovery time, relieving pain at the same time.
Many of the teas that are helpful for promoting bone density are also helpful when it comes to soothing arthritic or rheumatic inflammation, repairing muscle and torn ligaments, and even just helping to strengthen your brittle nails.

Other Suggestions to Strengthen Your Bones and Muscles
Keeping strong and health is particularly important as we age, so here are a few suggestions that may help you not only to ease your recovery, but also perhaps prevent issues and accidents as time goes by.
You’ve had a fall and need to use a cast and perhaps crutches. Make sure to follow the doctor’s recommendations and don’t put pressure on the bruised area. Otherwise, you may risk prolonging the need for the cast.
If your doctor has recommended some form of physiotherapy after a bad fall, do not skip on the exercises as they may help prevent joint pain in the future. You don’t want to be that person who knows when the weather changes by the aches in your joints.
You don’t need to run to be healthy, walking – not strolling or window shopping – could provide the cardiac exercise you need, build endurance, strength, without the impact that often causes damage to joints, particularly in the knees.
Did you know that Tai Chi is a form of martial arts? If you do it properly, with controlled movements at the right speed you can not only build strength, but also obtain more balance, essential to preventing falls as we age.
Remember that healing takes time and you need to trust the process. Do your research and talk your doctor about how herbal teas may help to supplement your treatment and how they may help prevent issues later on.
May these herbal teas help to keep you whole!
