Rickets Natural Cure | Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment of Rickets
Rickets is a nutrional disease caused by a deficiency of Vitamin D and calcium in the sufferer. It affects the bone structure as the inner system can no longer produce the Vitamin D needed to add minerals to the bones, thus softening the surrounding tissues and weakening the bones, with obvious serious effects.
It is a childhood disease principally because children’s’ bones have yet to fully grow and are not strong enough to fight back against the disease.
It can also affect the kidneys, though this is less common.
It also may be a heriderity disease. Those who are prone to it or have a family history of suffering from it should take immediate steps in preventative medicine to stop taking hold.
Ayurvedic Remedies for Rickets
The main task for an Ayurvedic remedy for rickets is to add vital calcium and Vitamin D supplements to strengthen the afflicted areas or in the first place to be used as a preventive agent.
These herbal supplements are found in capsule form and should be taken orally. To understand the dosage levels required you should either read the instructions on the packaging or if you want a more personal consultation you should ask a qualified Ayurvedic practionier:
When digested into the system they aid the elimination of harmful matter, modify undesirable elements and convert some of the negative characteristics and matter into positive ones.
Also Moti Bhasma is essential calcium giving Ayurvedic remedy. It is a pearl that can be bought in powder form and drunk when added to water twice daily.
Ayurvedic diet to cure rickets
A very useful, cheap and very easily available foodstuff to both prevent and help cure rickets is a banana.
It is rich in the necececary minerals, potassium and carbo-hydrates needed to keep the body functioning and in the case of a rickets sufferer it has the nutrients and vitamin D supplements needed for the body to start re-producing the needed fats.
Also fruit, vegetables and grains are encouraged. Whilst animal fats should be eaten but only in moderation.
General Debility in Ayurvedic
General debility is a general weakness in the body, which can either make you prone to infection or has been already been caused by one. Rickets is one such complaint.
In Ayurvedic teachings balam means strength when your balam is compromised by other beings you become prone to infection.
Ayurvedic herbs to restore Balam
Aminaki (Emblica officnalis), this herb is particularly rich in Vitamin C, indeed it is said that a single dose of Aminaki is worth 30 oranges when it comes to Vitamin C intake.
Satawain (Asparagus racematrsus)
Ashwagandha (Withania Samnifera). This has particular relevance as it boosts strength in children and improves their immune system. As Rickets is predominately a childhood disease then any child in danger of developing it should immediately be prescribed Ashwagandha.
Additional Ayurvedic supplements to restore general debility
These should be taken as well as the herbal remedies above as they add strength to them, but are not strong enough on their own to provide sufficient goodness to combat disease.
