You’ve heard about the benefits of weight-bearing exercise for strengthening your bones.
Being straight and having a strong backside puts the pressure of being upright on your bones, where it belongs. That lets your bones become strong.
And you can read about preventing osteoporosis with good posture (which you can create with the SimpleStrengthening exercises.)
I’m here to testify…
I kind of hate to admit it, but from time to time, I trip.
I had a lovely “trip” just a few days ago. A five-point landing. No one applauded, but I’m quite sure it was very impressive.
And, once again, I did not break any bones.
And, I am grateful.
How do I keep my bones strong and healthy?
Let me count the ways:
1. Plenty of sunshine (creates vitamin D.) Bones need vitamin D to absorb calcium from your food. (D3 is the best type.)
Most people in the northern United States are deficient in Vitamin D. This happens because you don’t get enough sunshine on your skin for one reason or another. Your doctor can do a blood test to check if you are deficient, if you want.

Osteoporosis is not something we want to have. What we really want are strong, healthy bones.
So, I’m going to tell you about the most common cause of osteoporosis.
It’s really common to see people with their heads in front of their bodies. Sometimes their heads are really far ahead of their bodies. Not good.
We were built so that all of our bones stack up, one on top of the other. When our posture is perfect (like it was when we were young children) then our bones support our bodies.
When we start to fall into a collapsed posture–when we get a forward head–then we start using muscles to support our body. Our muscles are not designed to support us; that’s what our bones are for.
Using the Simple Strengthening program (everything you need to know is here) for easily making your back side strong will correct your posture.
When your posture is once again nice and straight, your bones will be supporting your whole body as they used to.
When your bones are supporting your body, they are “working.” When they do the job they were designed to do, there is correct pressure on your bones. This pressure helps your bones to stay and become dense and strong.
Skeletons need to be stacked up properly so your bones will work to support you, and so they will be strong.
When bones are not “working” to support you, they become weak. So osteoporosis is caused Continue reading “How Do Good Posture and Simple Strengthening Prevent Osteoporosis?”
