Osteoporosis, or loss of bone density, is commonly regarded as a natural part of aging. Mineral depletion causes bones to turn thin and porous over time making them brittle and prone to fractures. Specific bones that are the most commonly and worst affected are the spinal column, hips, pelvis, and ribs.
For hormonal reasons, more women than men suffer from this disorder. At least 25 per cent of all postmenopausal women have some form or another of it.
The causes are:
- Sudden decrease in the levels of the female hormone oestrogen, post-menopause
- A lack of dietary calcium in the food
- Ovary removal from hysterectomy, or Cushing’s syndrome, a hormonal disorder
- Physical inactivity, or prolonged use of corticosteroid medications.
Homeopathy is useful for osteoporosis, not just a complementary, natural therapeutic option, but also as adjuvant treatment. It can bring the body into better balance and promote better, efficient absorption and use of minerals and other nutrients. Put simply, homeopathy for osteoporosis may not ‘transform’ the condition; it helps to improve bone structure, slow down bone loss, and, when begun early enough, delay the onset of the condition.
Homeopathy treats osteoporosis from a holistic perspective, helping to bring all aspects of a patient’s life into balance to support bodily and physiological health. Homeopathic clinicians evidence that homeopathy for osteoporosis doesn’t just help heal the condition, it also helps the patient become well again overall. This, according to homeopathic tenets, is what holistic healthcare is all about — a healthier person isn’t as susceptible as others to illness.
Evidence-based studies, supplanted with clinical outcomes, also attest that homeopathic remedies can relieve aching bones and prevent, or heal, fractures too. A case in point. Meera, a forty-three-year-old accountant, presented with backache, easy perspiration and fatigue, with mild pain all over her body. Our preliminary analysis revealed that she had already reached menopause. Her primary symptoms also suggested early signs of osteoporosis. We ordered a bone density test to ascertain the condition of her bones. As suspected, her bone mineral density score turned out to be alarmingly low: -1.5.
We prescribed her the homeopathic remedy, Calcarea Carbonicum 200C and Calcarea Phosphoricum 6X, twice a day, along with an appropriate diet and lifestyle regimen. A repeat bone density test, after six months, showed a significant ‘jump’ in her bone mineral density score: 0.5. All her aches and pains too resolved, along with good and continual clinical progress. She now exercises daily at the gym and leads a normal, healthy life.
