Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease that is characterised by a decrease in bone mass and density. The decalcification of the skeleton is a significant problem for many older men and women. The disease causes bones to get brittle, increasing the risk of fracture and thus requiring the patient to live with care. This risk can be minimised by regulating hormone levels combined with a healthy lifestyle and exercise.
The regulating of hormone levels can be done by means of acupuncture treatment in combination with Chinese herbs.
