It’s been a long time since I’ve done an introduction of myself. And i was tagged by the beautiful @_theopaque_
To play along. I also have tagged a few to play and go check them out.
I’m the face behind Astralchemy. My name is Lindsey.
A few fun facts about me: •I’m 33 today so that makes a Libra. But have an Aquarius moon and a Capricorn rising. So that makes me 🦇 crazy right?! 🤣🤣🤷♀️• My eyes change colors like the seasons. 👁👁
• i spent half of my life traveling from Minnesota to Kentucky riding horses when I was younger.
• i have two amazing children, that are 13 and 8.
• i have a slight obsession with plants. 🌿 and have over 70 in my house right now (haven’t counted in awhile) 🤷♀️
• there is nothing better than taking a long warm bath to relax in. • I’m an avid dreamer, so I’ve always to learn to ground myself since I was a child. (Always my head is in the ☁️)• my husband makes acid techno music and plays out at raves from time to time • my mother has been making jewelry for over 30 years and has helped me along the way
Tell me a little about yourself?
The Catacombs of Paris were worth seeing. They have a strange history, and from what the guide was saying, I believe were only made into a tourist trap, as a result of needing to empty overcrowded cemeteries and stabilize underground quarries. But, like all macabre curiosities, the tunnels of bones resonate with all of us in a weird way. You should go, because it really is unique and plays a part in the history if the city during some of its most turbulent times. .

Let's talk about osteoporosis for a quick minute! 📖
It is a condition in which bones become thin and porous; decreasing in strength and leading to risks of easy fractures
Although there may be many causes for this condition one of the main culprits is a decrease in levels of estrogen.
As women age, their levels of estrogen naturally decline; particularly post menopause (~51 years old)
Other risk factors include:
-smoking -sedentary lifestyle -Caucasian and Asian decent -alcohol use disorder -certain medications such as warfarin, lithium and glucocorticoid (just to mention a few)
👩🏽⚕️Prognosis is generally very good if detected early & appropriately managed
Prophylactically young adults should be encouraged to achieve enough calcium in their diet (~1,000mg/day)
Regular weights-bearing exercises are also important. These include walking, riding stationary bicycles, rowing machine and jogging etc. Please note that swimming and water exercises (such as water aerobics) are NOT weight-bearing. This is because the buoyancy of water counteracts the natural effects of gravity
Diagnosis of osteoporosis is through a bone mineral scan (DEXA); which is a low dosage X-ray. T-score =<-2.5
Some of the main things your scan will give you are the following:
-total bone mineral density -total body muscle mass
-total body fat mass
It may also be beneficial to those on a weight loss journey to track their progress
💥DEXA is known to be 99% accurate!

For all you “organic” real humans on here that have an attention span greater than a fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), this fall’s pattern will feature all the skellies with missing parts, most because I either ran out of room on the paper (genius) or couldn’t get a certain part to look right. It’ll be dedicated to all the souls still searching for something that just isn’t there.
