OSTEOPOROSIS Ayurvedic Treatment

Your doctor will generally suspect your osteoporosis based on your symptoms (easy fractures, bad posture, etc), your age (old age) and gender (female). In order to check how easily your bones are likely to break, measuring your bone density is important and is usually the base for all osteoporosis diagnostic tests.2,3

Your doctor may recommend a diagnostic test to confirm osteoporosis. These include:3

  • DEXA Scan – it is the most common test that uses dual X-rays to measure your spine, hip or total bone density to access your risk of fractures
  • Ultrasound - Imaging technique that uses sound waves to check your affected area
  • Quantitative computed tomography - imaging test to look for the affected region and determine how severe your osteoporosis is
  • Blood or urine tests – to measure metabolism of bones
  • Bone densitometry – similar to X-rays and measures density of bones

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Consume healthy foods including nuts, dairy etc in diet
  • Langhanam (dieting) to reduce weight helps in reducing the burden on joints
  • Avoid carbonated drinks, packaged foods and junk food

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Avoid activities that cause both mental and physical stress
  • Avoid excessive exercise and physical activities
  • Avoid suppressing your urges (vegavidharan) to urinate, defecate, etc
