TREATMENT OF OSTEOPOROSIS BY TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

THERAPIES

Osteoporosis is a chronic disease


manifested by the demineralization of the
skeletal system. The inner structure of the
bone is affected first of all. The bones
become porous and fragile. The risk of
fractures in small effort is increased and
this may occur even during normal
movements in advanced stages.

According to the degree of bone density, three stages of the disease were identified,
namely: osteopenia, osteoporosis and manifest osteoporosis (characterized by the presence of
a fracture).

Although both sexes may suffer from osteoporosis, it affects mainly the women of
third age, being one of the effects of menopause’s onset. The hormonal changes specific for
this period cause disorders in the assimilation of minerals and, implicitly, the decrease of the
skeletal system’s strength.

By the age of 25 years old, the density of the skeletal system increases. Then, after 25
years old, it begins to decrease by approximately 0.3 – 0.5% a year, as a result of the aging
process. The rate may be accelerated under certain circumstances:

 Sex: women have a bone structure less dense than men;


 Race: Caucasians have a bone structure less dense than black people;
 Onset of menopause before 45 years;
 Hormonal disorders and the decrease of estrogen level in the body (where
women are concerned, as a result of menopause onset/surgical removal of both ovaries
or of the uterus);
 Amenorrhea – the absence of menstruation causes abnormal estrogen values;

 A fragile bone structure;
 Alcohol abuse;
 Smoking;
 A sedentary life and lack of physical exercise;
 A diet with a low share of calcium;
 Chemotherapy (because of the harmful effect it has upon the ovaries, it may
cause early menopause);
 Long term corticoid treatment;
 Bed immobilization as effect of certain diseases and complete lack of
movement (e.g.: paralysis);
 Diseases of the thyroid gland: hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, etc.;
 Gastrointestinal diseases: hepatic cirrhosis, malabsorption syndrome, etc.;
 Diseases of the bone marrow: leukemia, hemolytic anemia, disseminated
carcinoma, lymphoma, etc.

As the onset of osteoporosis is not accompanied by disturbing symptoms for the


patient, after the age of 35 years old it is recommended to take at least two specialty analyses
a year.

The status of the bone structure density may be ascertained by osteodensitometry or


by computerized thermography of contact.

In its first years of development, the disease does not show any symptom that could
alarm the patient. In the most cases the patient does not feel any discomfort until the
occurrence of the first fracture.

In severe cases, the skeletal system loses massive amounts of mineral substances.
Bone pains occur, both during day and night, pains that will not give in under treatment by
painkillers.

The fractures occur especially in hands, pelvis, hip, vertebral column, ribs and
humerus. The recovery is difficult, taking into account the deficit of mineral assimilation.

In the spine area the fractures occur when the vertebrae start to tamp, usually as a
result of the slightest efforts (sneezing, bending, and lifting of small weights). The pain
appears in the affected area right away and it decreases within a few weeks. In time, the sick
person loses stature as the spine changes shape.

This changes may be accompanied by acute back pains. Along with the vertebral
tamping, the degenerative disc disease also appears (sclerosis of the intervertebral discs).

During my medical career and by treating this disease, I have noticed that stress,
hormonal disorders, obesity as well as a imbalanced life style and diet also add to the above
mentioned causes.

Stress breaks the body’s energy balance and it affects the activity of the endocrine
system in time. Obesity is caused by very severe endocrine disorders. In time, a chaotic life
style and an unhealthy diet lead to the onset of metabolic and endocrine disorders.

In all these cases the assimilation of minerals is greatly diminished, which encourages
the onset of osteoporosis.

Curing osteoporosis by acupuncture and apiphytotherapy implies remineralization of


the bone structure in the first place by eliminating stress, obesity and balancing the endocrine
system.

At the same time, the treatment deals with the detoxification of the digestive system,
in order to increase the amount of absorbed minerals.

The herb extract are enriched with mineral substances and with natural vitamins to
supply the body with the necessary resources for the healing process.

In addition to the improvement of the intestines’ absorption capacity, the calcium


receptors in the body must be able to receive the necessary amounts of calcium.

In most cases of osteoporosis, these receptors are stuck with other substances or toxins,
which make it impossible for the minerals to be assimilated in the body, even if they are
present.

At the same time, the calcium transporters’ activity will be normalized, too, in order to
improve the rate of minerals and vitamins absorption and assimilation.

Balancing the metabolism implies the resorption of calcium from the inappropriate areas
where it has been deposited and the redistribution of the new shares to the areas of the body
that need calcium.

The pains and discomfort specific to this disease are greatly diminished during the
whole treatment by the action of acupuncture and herbs.
