Body Frame Health – The Musculoskeletal System and The Skin
Although we define body systems as separate entities, they work together. To live well, we must realize this interdependence. If our body systems are not in balance, we risk losing our health. Whole body health is keeping all body systems in balance—it is the foundation of good health. No single body system is targeted—we make choices that keep all systems toxin-free and that supply all systems with optimum nutrition. The result is total wellness: every day, you wake up with vitality and feeling great!
The Musculoskeletal System and the Skin
The skeleton ,is made up of all the body’s bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and other connective tissue, it provides strength, stability, support and a frame for muscles to work against in producing movement. Bones are both strong enough to support our weight and light enough to allow us to move. They protect delicate internal organs and store important minerals, like calcium and phosphorus and contains critical components of the hematopoietic system.
Bones come together to form joints, most of which are in constant motion. Muscles make up almost half the weight of the human body. Skeletal muscles work together with bones to provide the power that enables us to move. Tendons attach muscles to bones and ligaments, surround joints and connect one bone to another. The ends of bones are covered with cartilage a smooth, tough protective tissue that acts as a shock absorber and reduces friction.
We also include the skin here – the largest organ of the body – which acts as a protective barrier to the outside world. Skin also helps to regulate body temperature, senses painful and pleasant stimuli, and shield us from the sun’s harmful effects.
Potential Health Disorders
The most well-know musculoskeletal problems are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis – problems which affect thousands around the world.
Skin disorders include the minor problems of dry and thin skin, boils and blisters, as well as more troubling conditions such as psoriasis, skin cancer and eczema.
Disrupting Potential Disorders
A body without equilibrium is the result of poor lifestyle choices and can be the beginning of moving the body through the 3 phases of functional health to dysfunction/disorders to disease. Although bones and diet may not seem connected they are. Our standard diet may be a major risk factor for arthritis and osteoporosis. It also can result in unhealthy looking skin. Excess weight on joints, lack of essential fats and under and over-exercise also contribute to musculoskeletal and skin problems.
One out of every two women and one in eight men will have osteoporosis related fracture in their lifetime.
