From the Energy Medicine Perspective, at the most fundamental level it is thought to be energy that feeds your bones and prevents bone loss. Considering the discoveries of quantum physics, that energy is all there is in our Universe, this statement could stand to reason.

In terms of the body’s energy systems, bone density is believed to be regulated by the Kidney Meridian. So keeping the energy of the Kidney Meridian in a state of balance could be the first line of defense for preventing and reversing osteoporosis.

When most people think of the meridians they think of acupuncture. Acupuncture is the most well-known treatment modality that directly interacts with the energy of the meridians.

It is believed that you can directly interact with your meridians to bring them back into a state of balance all on your own. And the key to doing so could be contained in the application of Energy Medicine.

Sedating and strengthening the Kidney Meridian is a standard Energy Medicine procedure for correcting energy imbalances that are believed to be the root cause of osteoporosis. 

Sometimes, though, balancing the Kidney Meridian is not enough on its own. Let me explain: according to the Law of Five Elements from Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Kidney Meridian is fed by the Lung Meridian and the negative (for lack of a better word) emotion associated with the Lung Meridian is grief.

So, as you begin the process of sedating and strengthening the Kidney Meridian, it might be very helpful to note if you are experiencing grief in your life or if there is any past grief that you may not have fully processed. In either case, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is believed to be one of the most effective ways of processing such emotions in a resourceful manner.

Along with EFT, strengthening the Lung Meridian could also give the Kidney Meridian the energy it needs to do its job in keeping the energies of your bones healthy.

If grief is not an issue for you, you could still benefit from strengthening your Lung Meridian.

Kidney Meridian is one of two meridians that are thought to be associated with the Water Element from the Law of Five Elements. The other one is Bladder Meridian. You might be able to enhance the process of energizing of the Kidney Meridian by sedating the Bladder Meridian.

If you’re suffering with osteoporosis, a good strategy for using the Energy Medicine protocols noted above might be to use them two-to-three times each day.

Isometric exercise is another excellent way to promote bone density. Bones possess one of the same qualities of quartz crystal. That quality is called the piezoelectric effect. Piezoelectricity is electricity is electrical current that is formed by applying pressure to materials like crystals, certain ceramics, and bone. So when you do weight-bearing exercises or isometrics you’re creating these micro-currents in your bones that actually help to prevent bone loss.

Two simple isometric exercises that are thought to be helpful for osteoperosis are the Chest Squeeze and the Shoulder Pull. This pair of exercises takes about two minutes to complete and, in addition to being a way to create the micro-currents in your bones, which is thought to contribute to bone density, they could also be great tummy-toners. Be sure to check with your health care professional before using these exercises.

To perform these exercises, you could do the following:

  1. Place your arms out in front of you, inhale deeply, hold your breath, and push the heels of your hands hard against each other (see figure a below).
  2. As you perform step 1 squeeze your stomach in toward your spine, tighten your buttocks, and tilt your pelvis forward and up.
  3. When you want to exhale, instead take three more rapid breaths in through your nose while holding the posture described above.
  4. Then exhale slowly, as if blowing through a straw (your stomach will tighten naturally).
  5. When it feels like your exhalation is complete, blow three more rapid breaths out through your mouth.
  6. Relax after each round. Do several rounds.
  7. Repeat the entire sequence, except this time bend the fingers of each hand, hook them into one another, and try to pull your arms apart so there is isometric tension at your fingers and in your arms and shoulders (see Figure b).





You might feel your pain associated with your osteoporosis is diminishing by the day. After a month or two, if you want to make your doctor scratch his head in confusion, ask for another bone scan. Then, demand an explanation for the change in your bone density.
