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.
