Bones, particularly those in the spine and pelvis, loose calcium and become less dense with age. The symptoms of osteoporosis vary considerably, and in some people there may be no symptoms at all. Usually, however, there is some degree of pain, especially in the back. Thinning of the bones means that fractures occur very easily. When this occurs in the spine, there may be a consequent loss of height. Attention to diet is very helpful, as adequate intake of protein, calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D is important. Though bone loss is not reversible, constitutional homeopathic treatment may help to slow the process down.
Osteoporosis has been treated by homeopathy.
Osteoporosis requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
