Boron is one of the main minerals used in the bone building process of the body which directly acts as an activator. Boron helps convert vitamin D into its active state by initiating estrogen production. The estrogen then improves the absorption of calcium. This mineral also helps ensure the metabolism within the bone can function properly. In fact, because of its role in the body, Boron can actually assist in preventing arthritis and tooth decay.

Boron is one of the necessary minerals for building and repairing joint cartilage and the proper level of this mineral in the body is important as it helps maintain proper levels of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus as well as regulating hormones, especially estrogen and testosterone. Boron can also help maintain brain function and memory capabilities.

The body depends on Boron to perform a large majority of its functions and when there is a Boron deficiency in the body, the parathyroid glands, small endocrine glands in the neck of humans, become overactive, causing the glands to release too much of the parathyroid hormone. As a result, the level of calcium in the blood increases as it’s released from the bones, joints, and teeth, into the blood stream. Several resulting symptoms of Boron deficiencies include, arthritis, brittle bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative joint disease, hormonal imbalances, loss of libido, memory loss, muscle pain, osteoporosis, receding gums, and weak joint cartilage. Bone analysis have previously shown that arthritis joints and nearby bones contain only half the Boron content of healthy joints.

Boron supplements can help reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50%. Because this calcium is mainly withdrawn from the bones and teeth, Boron deficiencies are considered to be the most important factors in causing arthritis, osteoporosis, and tooth decay today. Boron supplements are actually considered to be an effective treatment for up to 95% in the relief of arthritis, provided the joint has not completely deteriorated. While taking Boron supplements for arthritis, it has been found that generally, individuals under 60 years old feel relief within the first month of taking the supplement where those in their 60’s felt relief in the second month, and those in their 70’s and 80’s generally felt relief after the third month of Boron supplementation.

The reason why Boron functions well to alleviate arthritis is partially due to its crucial role of calcium integration into the cartilage and bone. This can be very important for anyone despite not being previously diagnosed with arthritis.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
