Phytomedicine. It may be a new concept
for some. It is the system of using plants to help
human illness. It is been used most of
humanity’s existence, but today we’re quite used
to pharmacological medicine. Looking to phytomedicine may benefit many of us, particularly post-menopausal women and others who have osteoporosis. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc shares some recent findings
about such plant-based treatments including ginger along with others like turmeric for Fort Wayne osteoporosis
treatment and side benefits of enhanced bone health and bone
OSTEOPOROSIS AND POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN: BONE FRACTURES, BMD
Women are quite aware of osteoporosis. With DEXA
scans and concerns for fracture risk in the news, Fort Wayne women are reminded to take care of their bones.
Osteoporosis is best explained as an imbalance between bone
formation and bone resorption; both are controlled
by nitric oxide. When women reach menopause, estrogen levels
decrease which increases their fracture risk. In a recent study,
women were treated with a nutraceutical containing Paullinia
cupana, Muira puama, ginger, and L-citrulline, said to help fractures heal in rat studies. Nitric oxide was increased
along with other biomarkers like cGMP and calcium deposition. Bone mineral
density rose as bone resorption was slowed and
calcium deposition was improved. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc finds these to be positive outcomes
for Fort Wayne osteoporosis care with chiropractic.
GINGER AND TURMERIC FOR OSTEOPOROTIC BONE HEALTH
Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plans at
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc are based on well-done research studies and experience. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
values this well-designed prospective triple-blind randomized
controlled trial. Now, that’s a study!
Its goal is to quantify the effect of ginger and
turmeric on quality of life, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD) and
osteoporosis biomarkers for osteoporotic post-menopausal women. Since ginger and turmeric are pretty
inexpensive, this study’s results could really impact the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. (2) Fort Wayne
nutritional options for osteoporosis keep expanding!
FLL AND CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) FOR BONE PRESERVATION AND
Fructus Ligustri Lucidi (FLL) is an olive family plant used
for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties to treat osteoporosis for more
than 1000 years. It has been available for a long time!
Its bone-preserving properties may come from the influence
FLL seems to have on the microecology of the intestine. Intestinal
changes – changes to the gut’s microecology – come with aging, and FLL seems
to influence that. As an extra
effect, cognitive function got better. (3) Additionally,
combining curcumin and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi enhanced bone
regeneration, positioning it as a promising alternative
herbal way to osteoporosis
treatment and prevention. (4)
