BONES grow ever stronger from healthy exercising, diet & supplements
in a previous discussion Heather mentioned "Prescription for Nutritional Healing". a book floating around here somewhere too. - Then she mentioned Homeopathy's benefits, after her mom broke her hip, twice.
Tissue salt No1 Calcarea fluor (Calcium fluoride) – increases the elasticity of the connective tissue, ligaments and tendons as well as the firmness of the bones and teeth.
Tissue salt No2 Calcarea phos (Calcium phosphate) – Bones act as reserves of minerals, most notably calcium and phosphorus. Calcium phosphate regulates the formation of extra bone, thus preventing spur development.
Tissue salt No11 Silicea (Silica) - Silica is silicon dioxide, a trace mineral found in bones, teeth, skin and eyes. Silica acts as a regulating factor for the deposition of calcium and phosphorous in bone tissue. Supplementation reduces the number of osteoclast cells, thus primarily preventing bone reabsorption and bone loss. Silica is absorbed very slowly by the body and in osteoporosis it has to be taken as a long-term treatment.

My mom (aware of the crap that passes for 'food' in the US), wanted to make SURE she would keep her bones strong... so aside from growing a 100by200 foot garden in Fla, she also consulted homeopathy & kept an ever-growing such pharmacy, plus also taking supplements. - Long story short, she ended-up fracturing... her nose, jaw, hips, etc. by age 67 !! - afaik, other than walking... everywhere nearly all of her 85 year life, she did not engage in any other weight-Bearing fun such as for example Gymnastics & ice skating.
Otoh, I have not done homeopathy, but for ten years as a child I Snow-skied 4+ months yearly, & rest of 8 months enjoyed gymnastics (they have the densest bone mass of anyone on the planet), plus was the fastest/leanest sprinter to the finish line. - Fast forward 20 years in the US when (after 1 of the most horrific crimes a mother can face), a Dexa-scan interpreted "age 40, alarming bone loss, Swiss cheese has fewer holes". - Naturopath insisted I had to start oral Premarin; - which I knew to totally REFUSE, as pregnant horse-pee has NO place inside a human body. Instead I told her "Aha, God is putting me on Notice yet again: How long have you wanted to learn to Iceskate, 25 yrs ? Better get with it". - Appalled she yelled No,no,no you will end up a quad on 1st. fall on any ice. Once an adult, never mind you, can Never risk anything. <- I paid that fool no mind.
But never got started on the ice, & in lessons until 55. - However many x you fell learning to walk, now multiply by 4, or is it 20 ? lol. - Yes & then shared photos of me passing 1st. 2 Ice-tests complete with showing falls on practicing more Senior moves had no skills for, but I skated them for totally fearless Child-like fun ! - Never once broke a bone, not in countless Beginner falls which are worse as lacking all kinds of skills. Docs could not believe their eyes. - Fast forward 5 yrs. in the garden, & I broke left-wrist, & refusing surgery, later that shoulder after practicing P.T. hefting around 30 lbs. cement blocks, lol - okay a bit too much.
Questions: except for the silica, how are Calcium "fluoride, & phosphate" any better cell-assimilated/used, than other sold stuff ? - the real question: What specific form(s)? of each needed mineral are the most-readily absorbed into the cell, & used in this case for maintaining an Optimal bone matrix for any healthy chosen movements...
re Allopathy, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, any other sort of PATHY: they all have in common 'disease', their own way of fixing... disease. - Yet Botany & Herbology appear as less man-made religions, & more like how God created life to begin with, & for our benefit. Thoughts?
