Bone fracture is a complete partial break in the bone, which requires a lot of time for healing. Natural methods such as using Cissus Quadrangularis can speed up healing.

Bone fracture can occur to anyone at any time but it definitely takes a long time to heal. Among the natural ways for speedy healing of bone fractures, Cissus Quadrangularis is unmatched. Other tips to hasten natural healing and knitting of the bone fracture include adding nutrients to diet, application of common sensical measures, among others.

The top five tips to natural healing for bone fracture are:

1. Cissus Quadrangularis

Cissus Quadrangularis is a potent bone builder. It helps in healing bone fractures. Studies reveal that Cissus Quadrangularis binds with DNA/ RNA and activates osteoblast proliferation. It boosts the production of osteocalcin, the natural supplement that lowers inflammation. Studies have concluded the decrease in pain of up to 31% after consuming Cissus Quadrangularis. Moreover, further studies prove Cissus Quadrangularis’ effectiveness in mandibular fractures. A research study by Rasale Prashant, published in the International Journal of Research in Ayurveda & Pharmacy 2014, concluded that Cissus Quadrangularis helps in the acceleration of bone healing by osteoblastic activity (bone cell development) and continuous bone maturation (hardening of callus). Additionally, Cissus Quadrangularis gives analgesic (pain-relieving) effects without any side effects.When I need to add some natural bone-strengthening supplement for my orthopedic clients who suffer from bone fracture, I advise them to use the Cissus Quadrangularis extract supplement from BestSource Nutrition.

2. Stop smoking and limit sugar intake

Smoking changes the blood flow to the targeted bone. As blood delivers essential nutrients to tissues and helps rebuild bone fractures in the natural process of healing. A study conducted by Elizabeth A Krall and published in February 1999 in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research showed significant results by claiming that smoking increases bone loss by radius and hip. Sugar and sugar sweetened drinks increase bone loss and offer insufficient nutrients for wound healing. Similarly, phosphorus content in cola or any soft drinks can eliminate the natural calcium from bones.

3. Well balanced diet

Anyone with a bone fracture must take a good and nutritious diet. The diet must be high in protein and vitamin E. A study conducted by BONJOUR JP, published in the American Journal of Nutrition in December 2005, stated that the intake of good quality dietary proteins uplifts the levels of IGF-1, a dynamic element necessary for the normal activity of skeletal development and aids in bone formation. A study conducted by Holvic et al printed in EPUB JUL 2014 showed that low levels of active vitamin E i.e. alpha tocopherol is associated with a high risk of hip fractures. Thus, it is established that vitamin E is a much-required vitamin for maintaining bone health and for bone remodeling. However, some studies also state that tocopherols (found in Vitamin E) encourage the production of bone damaging and disintegrating cells.

4. Vitamin D and calcium supplementation

Bones may heal faster if the diet includes Vitamin D and Calcium along with Cissus Quadrangularis. As Cissus Quadrangularis increases bone mineralization and bone density, it may also increase calcium and vitamin D requirement. A study done in Copenhagen in 2004 concluded that the study group that took calcium and vitamin D supplements, saw increased bone density, which can help in natural healing of bone fracture at faster rates.

5. Limit your activity and range of motion-

Fractured Bone healing is a natural self-repair process of the body. Therefore, anyone with a bone fracture should limit the use of the injured bone or affected body area. This will help in the faster natural setting and healing of the bone. Limited motion also helps in reducing inflammation and pain.

Following these five tips can help in natural healing and speedy recovery from bone fractures.
