Osteoporosis – Ayurvedic remedies for treating bone disease

Apart from ayurvedic remedies and medicine, following healthy lifestyle choices through your diet, sleep, and work routines to reduce or eliminate risk is also important

Osteoporosis is a bone disease in which bone tissues deteriorate and bones become brittle leading to frequent fractures. It is often called a silent disease because there are no symptoms in the early stages and it progresses quietly. It is a result of low calcium, protein, or hereditary causes. It is most common amongst elders. According to statistics, one in every three women over 50 years of age suffer an osteoporotic fracture. One in five men also face the same risk. However, ageing is not the only cause of osteoporosis. Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis chronic kidney disease can also increase risk levels. In addition, poor lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking, or drug abuse can certainly affect your risk levels.

Natural ayurvedic remedies for osteoporosis

Basti Karma – Basti means to stay, Basti Karma is the introduction of liquid-based ayurvedic medication, such as herbal oils or decoctions, through the patient’s colon for its absorption and circulation of tissues. This balances out the Vata dosha, which is predominantly located in the colon and bones. Further, basti karma can cure up to 80 types of Vata dosha disorders. 

Nirahua Basti – The decoction enema helps to treat musculoskeletal ailments such as arthritis, muscle stiffness, and nerve-related disorders. Further, it can help with constipation and indigestion, flatulence, amenorrhea and infertility. This method uses small amounts of medical kashaya or honey to treat ailments. It also uses contaminated Vayu (air) and toxins from the body, which helps to restore optimal bone strength. 

Anuvasana Basti - In this method, you deposit fat or ghee for longer periods within the intestines, bladder, or uterus. This is one of the most effective basti treatments for bone tissue and muscle relaxation, and to soothe the mind. 

Sesame seeds - This is a popular Ayurvedic medicine for bone health as it includes minerals, such as copper, magnesium, and calcium. In fact, one daily serving of sesame seeds (33 grams) contains 22 of your calcium RDI. Most importantly, it is high in omega-3 fats and protein content which can aid bone tissues. Many people use it as an antioxidant and vitamin-rich addition to their diet.

Milk - Milk is a calcium-rich beverage and a Vata-pacifying remedy. Thus, it is one of the most effective remedies for bone health. You can boil with saffron, pitted dates, and coarsely chopped almonds as an effective bedtime drink. This is a soothing and bata-pacifying drink. Moreover, it is heating in nature and best during winters.
