Around the world figures show that each year osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures. This equates to an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. Statistics also show women are more affected with 1 in 3 women over age 50 experiencing an osteoporotic fracture compared to 1 in 5 men.
There is many causes of excessive bone loss leading to osteoporosis including a drop in estrogen when a woman reaches a certain age, hyperthyroidism, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, toxic exposure, eating disorders, sedentary lifestyle, some medications used to treat other conditions and smoking among others. And although predominately it affects those over the age of 50 it can also affect younger generations. Some are diagnosed with Osteoporosis in their teens while there is also a growing number of women getting diagnosed during or after pregnancy, a condition called Pregnancy Related Osteoporosis.
More and more individuals diagnosed with osteoporosis are seeking natural ways to treat their condition. Here at Neomed in Cyprus we have created an Osteoporosis program for such individuals which targets the cause of bone loss and therefore tailored to each individual guest.
One of the very first steps in our program is to discover what levels of heavy metal toxicity reside in your organs and tissues and which minerals you are actually deficient in. Frequent exposure to toxic substances can actually cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies and we find that the majority of individuals with Osteoporosis will have both these issues. Lead for example is known to inhibit activation of vitamin D, uptake of dietary calcium, and several regulatory aspects of bone cell function. We use an amazing piece of technology called Zell Screening to discover this important data before we do anything else. Rather than testing what is circulating in the blood or what is being excreted from the body through urine, this non invasive test shows what toxicity and what minerals are in the body’s living tissues which gives us a much more reliable and accurate picture.
Once we know what levels of toxicity you have and which substances we embark on our unique detox program to drag these out of your tissues. As part of our detox we use ozone therapies to clean your blood of any bacteria, viruses or yeast, to stimulate your metabolism and to boost your immune system.
Our next step is to examine your digestive tract to discover if you are absorbing the nutrients in your food, whether your body is eliminating all unwanted substances and also whether there is any parasitic infection in your gut contributing to malabsorption. Once we have a picture of your digestive system we include advanced gastrointestinal therapies to your program to correct the microbiome of the intestinal tract, to heal the mucosa lining and to increase the absorption of the nutrients from your foods. We also look at correcting your acidic ph balance with special alkalising infusions direct into your bloodstream bypassing the gut process.
Of course included in this step is to look at your diet and we will make specific recommendations based on your Zell Screening report and on the analysis of your digestive system.
Decreasing inflammation and pain along with the healing and strengthening of bone injured from fractures is also a very important part of our program. We have a range of sophisticated and groundbreaking physio, magnet therapies and electrical stimulation to help us with this task. One of the favourite therapies for our guests is Papimi. Papimi is the most powerful nanopulse magnet therapy available with an array of benefits including immune stimulation and pain relief, and shortened recovery times for fractures and injuries. Papimi not only helps to heal fractured bone but also helps to strengthen it and with regular use helps to prevent future fractures.
We also guide and support you through an exercise program, one which you can continue when you return home. Daily exercise is imperative for anyone with osteoporosis even though many shy away from this because of fear of fractures.
Prolonged stress can also contribute to osteoporosis, so we have included therapies to switch your autonomic nervous system from sympathetic to parasympathetic mode. We are also encourage all of our guests to spend time with our Physiotherapist to include emotional healing alongside their physical therapies.
If you have a diagnosis of Osteoporosis and a natural route is your chosen path you do not have to do so alone. There is many ways we can help you and support your on your healing journey.
