Osteoporosis Ayurvedic Treatment

The term Osteo means Bone and porosis means porous or thinning, therefore osteoporosis is defined as thinning of the bone (bone density) due to reduction in the bone mass ( all components of bone, not only calcium). It is a condition defined as when the bones become weak and brittle and thus leads to fracture even on a sudden fall or mild stress on the bone. Bone is made up of living tissue that gets broken and replaced constantly and it is a condition where new bone tissues are not formed. All the bones have some small spaces and when osteoporosis occurs, therefore, it increases the size of these spaces i.e. more of a gap thus causes the bone to lose its strength and density. It can occur at any age but mostly in older adults. Women are 4 times more prone to osteoporosis, especially after menopause.

Osteoporosis mainly affects the hips, ribs, wrist, and spine. There are several modern medicines that cause side effects to the bone which leads to osteoporosis. Bones are made up of protein collagen band calcium when bone mass decreases after the age of 35 calcium started decreasing hence no new bone mass is formed leads to the spongy bone. Ayurvedic medicines, a healthy nutrient-rich diet, and weight-bearing exercises prescribed by the Ayurvedic doctor can help prevent bone loss and strengthen weak bones. Ayurveda for Osteoarthritis treatment has the most effective and life-long results.
