And if you want to repair broken bones naturally,you want to follow a very specific diet, supplement regimen, lifestyle regimen, as well as usecertain essential oils and natural treatments to help your body heal much, much faster.And I'll tell you, I've seen broken bones heal two to three times faster by followingthe tips I'm sharing with you in this tutorial. So number one, let's start with diet, andthe key nutrients you've got to be getting in your diet in order to heal broken bones.Number one, you need a lot of minerals, especially
calcium and magnesium. The best calcium richfoods are going to be green, leafy vegetables and raw, fermented dairy products. So gettinga lot of kale, and spinach, and arugula, and chard and those green leafies, even broccoli.Getting those in your diet is number one. They're packed with calcium, and calcium isthe main mineral that helps make up strong bones. But in order for your body to even use calcium,you also have to have magnesium. And so, some magnesium rich foods are going to be verysimilar. Green leafy vegetables, raw, fermented dairy products like goat's milk, kefir orraw goat cheese. Also though, magnesium rich
foods may include certain seeds, like flaxseeds, chia, pumpkin seeds, grass fed beef are also good. So again, you want to get alot of calcium rich foods, magnesium rich foods. Also, you want to get foods that arerich in zinc. Zinc foods again, are going to be grass fed beef, pumpkin seeds, chiaand flax seeds. Very similar to the magnesium rich foods. And then, also you want to begetting loads of Vitamin C, and even things like fresh vegetable juices. Vitamin C richfoods can include orange juice, true oranges, lemons, bell peppers, kiwis, broccoli, asparagus.Those are foods that are packed with Vitamin C. So make sure you're getting plenty of VitaminC.
So really your diet should consist of a lotof veggies, some fruit, some organic meat, some nuts and seeds. And that should reallybe the bulk of your diet as you're trying to heal, and get all of those nutrients forbuilding strong bones. Now the foods you want to stay away from arefoods that tend to be overly acidic, conventional meat and dairy products and alcohol. You alsowant to stay away from excess sodium and excess sugar. Those will acidify your body. They'llactually leach those minerals out of your body and really cause your bone growth andhealing to slow down. Now, the top natural supplements for the treatmentof broken bones are going to be, number one,
taking a Vitamin D supplement. If you havea broken bone, getting out in the sun is ideal. Getting direct sunlight, Vitamin D is reallyimportant for bone growth. But if not, then taking 5,000 IUs twice a day for three monthsof Vitamin D is crucial to healing broken bones fast. The other supplements you're going to takealong with magnesium and calcium supplements, ideally is a magnesium chelate supplement,so it would go to whole food form of magnesium. Also, things that can help is a fish oil supplement.Those omega three fats can reduce inflammation, speed the healing process, as well as doinga green super food powder. Getting a green
super food that has spirulina and chlorellaand other alkalizing fruits and vegetables. Very, very beneficial at actually healingbroken bones. The next step in healing broken bones fastnaturally, is going to be natural therapy, such as standing on a vibrational platform.There are studies that show a vibrational platform increases bone density, so you canfind vibrational platforms on line. Stand on those for 20 minutes, three times a dayand it naturally helps increase your bone density. And it's doing that without majorimpact, so again, vibrational platform. Don't forget that. Some gyms also have them in thegym. I know a lot of chiropractic offices

Hi. My name is Khurram Pervaiz. I am a shoulder, elbow and hand specialist with the Orthopedic Associates of Central Maryland and I work at Howard County General . Elbow fractures can happen after a fall. This could be a simple ground level fall, as in falling on the floor, or falling down steps or falling off a tree. You would have
pain in your elbow, swelling, limitation in motion, you could have bleeding from the elbow, and if you have these symptoms, it would be. you should probably go see someone andget an xray to make sure you do not have an elbow fracture. Going to the emergency room isprobably the best thing to do because in the emergency room they willprobably get an xray
and find out if you have an elbow fracture and then probably send you to the right specialist. If you are suspicious that you have an elbow fracture, then it would be appropriate for you to makean appointment with an elbow specialist so they can get xrays, evaluate you thoroughly and decide whether this is somethingthat can be fixed with something simple like a cast or whether it's something that needs surgery.
Elbow fractures can be highly complex, technical injuries and frequently specialized training and technical expertise are required to putthese complicated injuries together with surgery. The most important thing in the elbow joint would be thealignment of the joint itself or the
articular surface. If the alignment of the joint has beenaffected then it frequently has to be restored through surgery. If that alignment of the joint is okay then elbow injuries can be treated with something simple like a sling or a cast or just immobilization for a short periodtime, however,
the elbow is a joint that does nottolerate immobilization very well, so immobilization is usually done for a short period of time to avoid permanent stiffness. Complications from elbow fracture surgery can rangeanywhere from nerve injury to bleeding to infection, swelling and stiffness in the arm. Elbow fractures can take anywhere fromsix weeks to three months to heal completely.
