Ayurveda for Osteoporosis

It is estimated that three million people in the United Kingdom have osteoporosis. The disease effects one in three women, and at least one in twelve men. Every three minutes someone has a fracture as a result of this disease. Osteoporosis is a gradual decrease in bone density that leads to weakness in bone structure. Far from being just the framework for your body, bone is a dynamic living tissue that is constantly changing.

With age bone tend to lose an excessive amount of protein and minerals. Over time, this lead to osteoporosis, literally porous bone, a condition of low bone mass and density. People with osteoporosis are susceptible to broken bones and fractures, including severely painful fracture of the vertebrae. Fracture of the spine are most common, but any weak bone can break. Hip fracture are dangerous debilitating, and recovery is often long uncertain.

A women is most likely to lose bone, and lose it most rapidly, in the first five to nine years after menopause.
