Osteoporosis can be seen in both men and women during their late 50’s. It is a common among women especially during their postmenopausal stage.



Studies mentioned that around 14 million people in Australia have low bone density and osteoporosis, placing them at a much higher risk for osteoporosis. One in two women and one among four men suffer from osteoporosis in their late 50’s.


What is Osteoporosis?


Osteoporosis is a health condition, which affects bones, causing them to become fragile, weak and brittle. Bones are more likely to fracture (break) due to weaken bones.



The actual meaning of osteoporosis is “porous bone”. When a healthy bone is looked under a microscope, it looks like a honeycomb. The bones of patients suffering from osteoporosis are found to have pores and spaces in bony honeycomb. 



These pores and spaces are larger and bigger than healthy bones. This condition is termed as osteoporosis. In this condition, the density of bones becomes lesser and they become prone to the fractures. Generally, fractures of wrist, spinal vertebrae and hip are common in patients suffering from osteoporosis.



Osteoporosis in Ayurveda


From an Ayurvedic prospective, the reason behind osteoporosis can be explained as the aggravation of Vata humor. The excess Vata in bones can lead to breaking of bones. In Ayurveda, osteoporosis is known as a vata disorder. Osteoporosis is known as AsthiSushirta where ASTHI also known as bone and SUSHIRTA known as porousness.



As per Ayurvedic principles, osteoporosis occurs due to two major reasons:

  1. First is due to poor metabolism. It is also known as Mand-asthyagni. It means bone experience loss of fire that helps in making bones.

  • I have been suffering from IBS for quite a few years. My last resort was to see the doctor in Pure Herbal Ayurveda Clinic. Dr. Saini has helped me get my gut back to a itself. I am able to eat Gluten now and my gut issues have reduced quite a lot. I have more energy now.

    Karthik Rajappan

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

    Jessy T

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

    Vaibhav Singh

  • Simply the best thing I have done for myself and my health. Just knowing that Dr Saini is there is so comforting.

    JJ Aitken

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

    Tara prasad Bhattarai

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

    Christine Medley

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

    Ray Murphy

  • I have had a fantastic experience with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal clinic. The herbs I have taken as well as some dietary/lifestyle changes have brought me back into balance - my sleep has improved, my mental state has also improved I have more energy and am managing stress better. I would recommend going here for sure. Thanks Dr Saini! Kat

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏

    Inga Spyrou

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues
