The Tibb Approach to Osteoporosis

Dryness and Coldness Imbalance: Tibb associates osteoporosis with an excess of dryness and coldness qualities in the body. This imbalance makes bones brittle and susceptible to fractures.

Temperamental Predisposition: People with a dominant or sub-dominant melancholic temperament (naturally prone to dryness) are more at risk of developing osteoporosis.

Combined Temperaments: Those with a combination of melancholic and bilious temperaments (innately dry) face an even greater risk due to the double dominance of dryness.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by a decrease in bone density, making bones weak and brittle. This increases the risk of fractures, especially in the hip, wrist, and spine.

What causes Osteoporosis?

Bone Loss with Age: Bone is a living tissue that constantly renews itself. As we age, the rate of bone breakdown surpasses the rate of new bone formation, leading to decreased bone mass.
Peak Bone Mass: The amount of bone mass acquired during youth significantly influences the risk of developing osteoporosis later in life.

Osteoporosis Signs and Symptoms

  • Back pain, particularly in the upper back.
  • Gradual loss of height over time.
  • A hunched posture (kyphosis).
  • Bone fractures that occur with minimal trauma.

Tibb Lifestyle Factors for Osteoporosis Treatment

Focus on Warming and Moistening Foods

Prioritize Hot & Moist foods like bananas, turmeric, sweet potatoes, and brown bread. Include Cold & Moist foods like butternut squash, carrots, pumpkin, and pears in moderation. Limit Hot & Dry foods like avocado, garlic, onion, and chickpeas. Minimize Cold & Dry foods like beef, tomatoes, beans, and maize meal.

Bone-Building Nutrients

Eat whole-grain cereals and calcium-rich foods like sesame seeds, celery, and oranges to improve calcium absorption and strengthen bones. Menopausal and post-menopausal women can benefit from including soy products in their diet. Limit soft drinks, sugary drinks, yeast products, and salty foods.

Lifestyle Practices

Weight-Bearing Exercise: Engage in activities like walking, dancing, climbing stairs, and weight-bearing exercises to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Smoking Cessation: Quit smoking and avoid secondhand smoke, as smoking weakens bones.

Tibb Herbal Remedy

Almond Milk Drink: Soak 11 almonds overnight, peel them, and blend with a cup of warm milk. Drink this daily to promote bone health.
