3. Hadjod (Winged Treebine/Cissus quadrangularis) is translated as '(the one) that unites broken
bones' in Hindi, while its Sanskrit name, asthisamharaka, literally means 'protecting bones from
destruction'.
this is the secret ingredients used by all bone setters in India who I feel do a better job than
most orthopedic surgeons.
Hadjod ensures early ossification (bone formation) and fortifies bone tensile strength, which
accelerate fracture healing. Hadjod increases bone mineral density by stimulating bone
metabolism and increasing the uptake of minerals calcium, phosphorus, sulfur, and strontium by
osteoblasts (bone-forming cells). The action is also helpful in preventing osteoporosis-related
fractures. It relieves pain and inflammation associated with fractures.
I have tried it on me & worked well with me also. I had a very bad fracture & complete ligament
tear of my right ankle. It healed 3 times faster . Didn't take a singe painkiller(used few ayurvedic
herbs only). It has to be taken orally. can be added to any bone setting bandage.
4. The herbs I'm using are turmeric, myrrh, and ginger. All three are in powdered form. I use about
2 tablespoons each of turmeric and ginger, and about 1 tablespoon of myrrh.

ACL Tear and Its Management according to Ayurveda

Sports injuries mainly occur due to sudden impact or due to continues wear and tear. When an
injury occur due to sudden impact, body respond to that condition ,which lead to immobility and
other inflammatory responses, its a protective mechanism of body. Due to excessive body
activity strained muscles, ligaments and tendons can get injured. Excess of toxin can accumulate
in individual organ systems and can lower both mental and physical sharpness.

ACL Tear is one of them.


Ayurveda has special Panchakarma procedures which will refresh body and mind,improves the
logical capacity along with accuracy and power to withstand stress.
In the case of ACL Tear it should be looked at the stage of injury, should be needed a correct
clinical examination and relevant imaging techniques to determine the case. Then only it will be
clear regarding the stage and management of the case. In almost all cases of ACL tear and
associated soft tissue injuries including tendon and cartilage injuries of first degree, second
degree ,third degree and partial tears, Ayurvedic treatment gave better results than other systems
without surgery.
