Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by a decrease in bone density. Bones become weak and brittle.
A common result of osteoporosis is fractures. Osteoporosis rarely causes signs or symptoms until it’s advanced.
Factors that can increase the risk of developing osteoporosis include:

A number of homeopathic medicines are available to help slow bone loss and maintain bone mass. They do not have the side effects of the commonly used bisphosphonates.
Homeopathy is most effective for prevention of osteoporosis and treatment of mild osteoporosis. In advanced osteoporosis homeopathy can be added to the conventional drugs.
The most commonly prescribed medicines include Silicea, Calcarea carbonica, Calcarea phosphorica, Calcarea fluorica, Phosphorus and Natrum muriaticum. They improve calcium and phosphorus metabolism and are generally given as a long-term treatment.
French and Czech teams`reported beneficial effects of a complex homeopathic medicine Osteocynesine in osteoporosis in menopausal women. Women got bone density tests before and after 3- and 6-month treatment with Osteocynesine that contains homeopathic dilutions of Calcarea carbonica, Calcarea phosphorica, Calcarea fluorica and Sulphur iodatum. The follow-ups showed increase of bone density.
In my experience Osteocynesine slows bone loss and maintains bone density in female patients with postmenopausal or steroid osteoporosis when given as a long-term treatment 1-2 tablets 3 times a day. In advanced osteoporosis, I add it to the conventional treatment of the patient.
Three factors essential for keeping your bones healthy throughout your life are:
Long-term treatment with calcium supplements is not recommended because some patients develop bone spurs, kidney and gall bladder stones due to calcium deposits.
