The Skeletal System: Assisting Our Foundation as a Whole
Presented by Dr. Somesh Kaushik and hosted by the Putnam County libraries
Program happening virtually.
The skeletal system is made up of the bones (the skeleton), muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together. Its primary functions include supporting the body, allowing motion, and protecting vital organs. It also is involved in the production of blood cells, storage of minerals, and endocrine regulation.
While the adult human skeletal system includes 206 bones, the infantile skeletal system has many more, since not all of the bones have fused together yet. The mineral calcium helps your muscles, nerves, and cells work normally. If you do not get enough calcium in your diet, or if your body does not absorb enough calcium, your bones can get weak or will not grow properly. Your skeleton (bones) are a living organ. Teeth are not bones but are still part of the human skeletal system
Ayurveda assists our foundation – the skeletal system – by addressing its components as a whole while analyzing and treating individual symptoms and issues.
