Broken bones and how to assist healing - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Bones are a living, dynamic tissue which is constantly undergoing repair and regeneration. The adult human skeleton is made up of 206 bones and there are four different types of bone in the human body. Bones are made of connective tissue reinforced with calcium and bone cells...

The body is constantly breaking down old bone tissue and building up new bone. New blood cells are made in the bone. The three different types of blood cell made by the bone marrow are red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Vitamin D is essential for bone health. It helps your body absorb and use calcium and is made from sunshine and some food sources. 

Diet and exercise

A good healthy diet high in unprocessed grains and vegetables is essential to supporting the healing of damaged or weakened bones.
A regular program of weight bearing exercises, appropriate to their age, strength and fitness level, is essential for bone health. 

You will notice that I have not included any comment about the need for dairy products or calcium supplements in this discussion. This is because, contrary to advertising claims during the past 60 years or so, milk and dairy products are extremely unbalanced and not particularly healthy food substances. Dairy products contain vast amounts of calcium which the body cannot make use of without other minerals like silica and magnesium and certain trace elements, none of which are found in milk.

I recommend that anyone serious about healing damaged or weakened bones include oats and a ground combination of millet and linseed in their diet.

McDowells products

This Bone Mix is to assist the healthy formation and regeneration of bones. Supporting maturation and growth of the bones during growth and reducing or preventing the degeneration or bone loss that can occur in the elderly. This mix also helps to support regeneration and healing after injury.

It contains herbs high in silica which is the essential metabolic partner of calcium for strong bone growth. Other herbs support the bone marrow and the production of new and more elastic bone material rather than bone scar tissue following injury, operations or in persons subject to the process of osteoporosis. This mixture is also appropriate to all bone cancer patients along with other support mixtures.

The herbs I have chosen for this simple and reliable formulation are:- Elecampane, Equisetum, Yarrow and Rosehips with the Bach Flower Remedy and Oak.
