Osteopenia & Osteoporosis

Osteopenia and osteoporosis are both bone-related conditions characterized by decreased bone density and strength, albeit with differing degrees of severity. Osteopenia represents a milder form of bone loss, where bone density is lower than normal but not as severely compromised as in osteoporosis. In contrast, osteoporosis is a more advanced and serious condition marked by significantly reduced bone density, making bones fragile and prone to fractures, even with minor trauma or stress. Both conditions are often associated with aging and can lead to increased susceptibility to fractures, particularly in the spine, hips, and wrists. Prevention and management strategies for both osteopenia and osteoporosis include a balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, weight-bearing exercise, lifestyle modifications, and, in some cases, medication to strengthen bones and reduce the risk of fractures. Early detection and intervention are crucial in maintaining bone health and preventing the progression to severe osteoporosis.

Live A Wholesome Life With Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines conventional Western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. It emphasizes a holistic view of health, focusing on the interconnectedness of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Integrative medicine seeks to provide personalized and comprehensive care, incorporating evidence-based treatments alongside practices such as acupuncture, nutrition counselling, mindfulness, and other complementary therapies to promote healing and overall wellness.
