Aging Gracefully: Your Roadmap to Bone Health
June 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC-7
Do you want to maintain strong bones as you age but do not know where to start? Are you wondering if the Calcium and Vitamin D that your doctor told you to take is enough?
Nourishing your body all the way to the bones requires us to look at the body a little different than just replacing the nutrients that make up the bone. Our skeletal structure not only keeps us upright, but our bones are also a storehouse for minerals and the birthplace for our red and white blood cells, platelets and stem cells, deep within the bone marrow. We might only think of our bones when it comes to aging and their density, but this dynamic tissue plays numerous roles in our overall health. A diagnosis of osteopenia or osteoporosis can be scary.
As we age, our bone density changes, but how much it changes can depend on many factors relating to our whole body. Let’s face it, it’s not just about taking Calcium and Vitamin D. It’s about:
What we eat and how our food is prepared
The dance of our hormones
The state of our digestive tract
The levels of inflammation in our body
Our lifestyle habits, including exercise, sleep and the amount of stress we have in our lives.
Aging Gracefully: Your Roadmap to Bone Health will support you to take action and to understand how the whole body plays a role in nourishing our bones.
We will begin with our morning session, followed by a nourishing organic box lunch catered by Fork Restaurant. After lunch, a healing Cedar Enzyme Footbath and your choice of a luxurious 75-minute massage or organic facial followed by a sound therapy session in our field of hammocks.
When you nourish your bones, you nourish your whole body in a deep and meaningful way.
