Ayurveda in Treatment of Bone Disorders in Human: A Review
Journal Title:International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharmaceutical Chemistry
The human skeletal system becomes brittle, due to loss of bone density, which can lead to fractures and a compressed spinal column, thereby affecting posture and resulting pain in the back and the spine with increasing age. With alarming conditions, it affects other functions and organs in the body, causing associated symptoms of osteoporosis, constipation, degenerative arthritis, low back pain, insomnia, bladder and kidney weakness, frequent urination and dental problems. The incidences are more prevalent in older women. Ayurveda considers this deficiency disorder to be dominated by the air humour of vata.
