Ayurvedic Treatment of Bone Marrow Leakage


Bone Marrow Leakage is a condition in which a broken bone causes the fat tissue from the bone marrow -- the body's biggest producer of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets -- to leak into blood, and subsequently be carried all the way through the body via the bloodstream.

Fat tissue is one of the parts of the bone marrow, which is the soft, spongy tissue that is located within the hollow shafts of bones. At the place of the location of the bone marrow, a sponge-like network -- formed with fibrous tissue -- provides support to "primitive" cells called hematopoietic stem cells. The main sites of the bone marrow in the body are middle of the chest (sternum), the thigh bone (femur) and the hip bone (pelvis). Fat tissue is the main part of the bone marrow in the longer bones of the body, while it is comparatively much less is smaller bones.

The Bone Marrow Leakage problem generally does not lead to any other ailments, though it can be the causative factor behind a condition known as fat embolism syndrome (FES). The occurrence of FES is mainly an after-effect of major trauma which leads to the breakage of one or more large bones.

Although FES is a very rare condition resulting from Bone Marrow Leakage, it can lead to serious complications, like severe lung problems, seizures, drowsiness, and coma.


Some of the key reasons which can result in Bone Marrow Leakage are:

  • Breakage of bones / fractures
  • Trauma related to total joint replacement of the hip and knee
  • Bone grafting, leg-length correction operations and other surgical procedures in which the central section of long bones containing bone marrow is affected.


The common indications of Bone Marrow Leakage include:

  • Fat tissue enters blood stream after leaking from bone marrow
  • Damage to the Lung function if fat tissue reaches the lungs
  • Low count of platelets
  • Complications with the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) if fat tissue reaches the brain
  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) -- sudden failure of the respiratory system -- in severe cases.


The line of treatment generally followed by doctors for Bone Marrow Leakage patients is to minimize the symptoms of the condition, and to clear the fat tissue from circulation in the body by providing supportive care.

In case of patients suffering from FES due to Bone Marrow Leakage, doctors mostly recommend some common therapies, like stabilizing the broken bones, managing blood pressure, and assisting the patients with breathing by using a ventilator (in severe cases). In order to prevent the development of Bone Marrow Leakage into FES, the chief concern of the doctors is to quickly immobilize the broken bones.

For the benefit of the people affected by Bone Marrow Leakage, Ayurvedic experts have prepared some very useful herbal formulations. These formulations basically strengthen the bones, so that Bone Marrow Leakage can be prevented. However, if Bone Marrow Leakage occurs, the herbal formulations can be used for effectively managing the condition, so that the risk of FES is eliminated for the patients.

Some of the most potent Ayurvedic products which are beneficial for Bone Marrow Leakage patients are:
