Pelvis fractures are quite common in the elderly, but anyone can sustain a hip joint fracture from an injury.
It is generally not possible to medically treat a pelvis fracture. The only solution medically speaking, is to replace the hip. Although a hip replacement seems to be the only option to some, and can restore mobility to a younger person, it is a very different matter for an elderly person.
Elderly people, in general, don’t move about as much, don’t exercise as much. This means their muscle tone is much reduced. So they can become hip heavy. They often also suffer with low bone density, partially from the lack of exercise, but perhaps from a lifetime of inadequate nutrition, too.
A hip replacement can spell the end for an elderly person. The combined physical trauma and mental shock can make healing too difficult. The poor bone density is not conducive to the bone healing.
The best options may be the natural approach.
All living animals have enormous capacity to heal themselves. Often all that is necessary is rest, not something the human race is good at.
Many years ago, before my introduction to homeopathy, one of my cats was hit by a car, which fractured her pelvis. The veterinarian told me that the only solution was rest. So I organised a comfy box for her, put it on a chair so she could see out the window, and kept her in my office at work. I knew when she needed her litter tray.
No medication was given. Pain relief can make an animal think there is nothing wrong, so is best avoided. Mostly pain would come from movement, so she would naturally know to avoid that.
It took a few weeks for her come right. But she did make a full recovery. And all this simply with rest. No homeopathy. Not even a good diet.
Imagine how much more quickly that could have healed with both these natural and healthy options added?
A healthy, natural diet would ensure the immune system was maintained at an optimum level, so that healing was more likely, as well as being fast. It would also ensure better bone density, making a fracture less severe.
Add the appropriate homeopathic treatment into any condition, and the body responds quickly, perhaps gratefully. It’s a feeling I always experience when the remedy works its magic.
Charlotte Gerson, of the Gerson Institute (which teaches people how to overcome chronic disease through diet and natural means), fell heavily onto a concrete floor, when she was 90. She chose not to have a hip replacement. Instead, she rested and treated herself with diet.
After five weeks, she was up and about. A new X-ray confirmed the hip had healed perfectly.
Five weeks may seem a long time to take out of a busy schedule. But it is unlikely that recovery from a hip replacement would be any shorter. Assuming recovery is possible. It’s also worth remembering that artificial joints don’t last more than a few years. So a younger person may require several surgeries in their lifetime.
Using homeopathy for any condition, including pelvis fractures, supports the body’s natural inclination to heal. It can make recovery much faster, less painful and complete, leaving no residues to affect your life at a later stage. A great solution for both the young and the elderly!
