A good lifestyle habit can help you build strong bones and maintain them as you age. Adults over 50 should get 1000-, 200 milligrams of calcium and 400 to 600 IU of vitamin D. Hence, the addition of ayurvedic calcium supplements or calcium-rich foods is a must in one’s diet.

Osteoporosis Treatment in Ayurveda

One day when Ellinor was turning side in her bed, her rib got cracked and that is the time she realized what Ayushakti vaidya saying 3 months ago was absolutely right – she has osteoporosis. Ellinor, then without wasting time, straight away came to Ayushaktia Mumbai for “Arthrox” treatment.
Within 3 weeks of treatment with herbs, oil & dhara with special enemas. She got a remarkable relief in her pain. Then she flew back to Germany and continued Arthrox herbs with the diet for 2 years. Slowly her bone density became better and better and she recovered remarkably in 2 years. This made her very curious to learn Ayurveda and started coming to ayushakti to learn Ayurveda and pulse reading.

What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis Treatment

Osteoporosis is a silent illness. Slowly over a period of 8-10 years, bones become week and osteoporosis develops. Suddenly one day there is the fracture and then you will come to know that you have osteoporosis.
So first important thing is to prevent osteoporosis by checking bone density once a year when you cross 47 years of age. This will indicate if any osteoporosis is developing or not. If yes, then you can immediately start preventive measures. Ayushakti provides Ayurvedic medicine for Osteoporosis treatment. This blog will explain to you all about Osteoporosis treatment. Ayurveda Osteoporosis treatment is most effective.

As per Ayurveda, why osteoporosis?

As per Ayurveda, all the food that you eat converts into different tissues because of Dhatu Agni (Metabolism). Calcium and vitamin D conversion to bone tissues happens with the help of Asthi Dhatu Agni. When this Asthi Dhatu Agni or metabolism does not function very well in spite of taking lots of calcium and vitamins, bones start degenerating and lead to osteoporosis.
Besides that, excess vata (air) in the body also cause degeneration. As in the atmosphere, when there is a lot of wind, everything dries up, just like in Autumn.

What can be done naturally to reverse the osteoporosis?

In osteoporosis, it is very important to increase metabolism, nourish bones constantly and reduce vata constantly. Then, Stimulate dhatu Agni and metabolism. Thus, your own calcium and vitamin D is then starting working and producing bone tissues again and Improving bone density.

Read about the Ayushakti’s do-at-home detox diet and reduce two to three kgs or more in 30 days….

Five days, every month, follow a detox soup (mung and vegetable) diet. Whenever you are hungry, just have this soup. This soup helps remove the toxins and bloating from various crooks and crannies of your body.

Detox soup is very easy to make and is quite palatable

Ingredients :

1 cup soaked green Mung & 2 cups of vegetables. (you can use vegetables like pumpkin, bottle gourd, carrot, onion, French beans, snake gourd, turai, galka,( soft gourd), tendli etc. Cook the mung along with the vegetables in a pressure cooker. Add garlic ginger paste and seasoning to taste. Garnish with coriander leaves and drink warm.

Mung relieves inflammation and bloating, while flushing out toxins from the body. It is low in calories and leaves you feeling lighter and more energetic.

On the sixth day, you can return to a normal diet but restrict foods like wheat, fermented, sour, deep fried foods, red meat like pork and beef and food that tends to create gas in the body. Citrus foods like lemon and tomato should be avoided. Try and avoid carbohydrates including rice, bread, pasta, chappatti, potato, fruits for a few days.

Your diet should now consist of more green and leafy vegetables like pumpkin, bottle gourd, carrot, French beans, turai, galka(soft gourd), tendli, spring onion and tofu. Mung and mung dal, tuvar daal (lentil) are very good. Avoid carbs as much as possible. Non vegetarians can have eggs, fish and chicken for their protein requirement.

You can also make mung dal or besan(chickpea flour) pancakes or chilla in place of rotti/chappatti.

Spice up your foods with ginger, garlic, cumin, asafoetida, corriander which reduces gas formation in the body.

The weight loss of three to five kgs leaves you feeling lighter and more energetic. If you wish to maintain this feeling of lightness and energy, avoid wheat, sour, fermented foods and red meat from your diet.

The opposite of a light, energetic, and healthy feeling is exactly what Ms. Castelino was feeling. Work, travelling, and outside food had resulted in high sugar levels which weren’t advisable for her body.

With the help of this diet formed by Ayushakti doctors, a healthy state of being was once again a part of Ms.Castelino’s life.
