    Ashthi Kshyaya/ Osteoporosis In Ayurveda:-
    Ashthi Kshyaya/ Osteoporosis In Ayurveda:-
    Osteoporosis may be considered as thinning of the bones.
    After the age of 60, half of the female population and one third of men are affected by osteoporosis.
    This occurs when the body fails to form enough bone or when too much old bone is reabsorbed by the body or both. People who had insufficient calcium and protein during childhood, who are bedridden, or have a hereditary disposition are more likely to develop osteoporosis.
    Diseases such as chronic rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease and hyperparathyroidism make people vulnerable to this condition. People on antiepileptic drugs, corticosteroids are also at risk of osteoporosis.
    Menopause and the surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries can cause a fall in the primary female sex hormone, estrogen. Estrogen activates bone cell producing cells called osteoblasts but absence of estrogen causes increased activity of osteoclasts which cause re absorption of phosphates and calcium from bone cells to body and thus helping osteoporosis.
    Within 5-8 years after menopause bone density will have been reduced by 4%. As age increases, the chances of getting a fracture also increases.
    Ayurvedic medicine is a traditional system native to India with a holistic approach of health.
    Ayurvedic view on Osteoporosis
    Concept of Dhatu
    Dhatu – Seven types of body tissues which forms physical body. They are
    Rasa – Purified subtle part of properly digested food.
    Rakta – Blood
    Mamsa – Flesh
    Medas – Fat
    Asthi – Bone
    Majja – Bone marrow
    Sukla/Arthava – Reproductive tissue
    Each of these dhatus are subtler or purer than the previous dhatu and nourished by the same. For example fat (medas) is nourished by flesh (mamsa) and flesh (mamsa) by blood (raktha).The fire (agni) inherent in fat causes digestion and supply of nutrient or subtler part of fat to the subsequent bone(asthi) dhatu.
    Asthi or Bone is the fifth of seven dhatus of human body. This is the hardest of all dhatus. Equilibrium of doshas (Vatha, Pitha and Kapha principles) and seven dhatus capable of doing its own functions result in health. Bone or asthi dhatu act as framework of the body. Bone or asthi dhatu is the equivalent of the heart wood in a tree that gives support to the whole tree.
    Healthy joints are possible only with normally functioning bone or asthi dhatu.
    Each humor or dosha are specifically raktha, Kapha to other five dhatus. Flesh, Fat, Marrow and reproductive tissues.
    When pitha or kapha principle is abnormally increased corresponding dhatu is also increased. In the case of Vatha principle, it is the opposite. When vata increases related dhatu which is bone decreases. This is what happens in osteoporosis.
