Bone disorders can include osteomalacia, rickets and osteopenia (low bone mineral density), which can develop into osteoporosis (meaning porous bone).
For some people, ossification problems had occurred before they were even born, particularly if the mother was nutritionally deficient. Vitamin D deficiency and a poor diet, lacking in vegetables, are significant factors in this condition. Insufficient exercise will also deprive the bones of the strengthening they need. Excess protein in the diet creates an acidic environment that must be neutralised by the body. However, if there are not enough alkalising substances available for use, these get extracted from the bones, weakening them. An imbalanced level of oestrogen can also cause a loss in bone mass. Bone diseases can also be caused by bacterial infection of the bone, known as osteomyelitis, which occurs during times of rapid growth or after an injury.
Sufferers of osteoporosis will have low bone density, with a honeycomb-like structure in their bones due to them being stripped of minerals. The bone tissue will be degenerating, causing the bones to become fragile, making the person more susceptible to fractures. Severe back pain may be experienced when in the early stages of this disease. Gradually, the person will become ever shorter as their bones continue to deteriorate.

Getting plenty of exercise, particularly aerobics or weight training will help to strengthen the bones. Sufficient sunlight is crucial to ensure that the body has enough vitamin D in order to absorb calcium. It is very important to have a balanced diet that doesn’t contain excessive amounts of protein but is filled with plant material such as vegetables. Progesterone cream can be applied to help offset the hormonal imbalance, preventing further bone demineralisation. Antibiotics are usually prescribed to treat osteomyelitis, which if treated quickly, will prove less damaging to the bones. Pain killers may be used if the condition is painful and in some cases, surgery may be appropriate.
Experiences and case studies
A 13-year-old girl had been suffering from symptoms of osteochondrosis for 6 years. She had acute pain in her lower legs and could barely walk, having to wear an orthopaedic brace or being carried. After 4 treatment sessions, the brace was no longer needed and after 10 sessions, when the therapy was complete, the girl was even able to go horse riding and skiing.
