About bone/ Asthi dhatu in Ayurveda:
Asthi dhatu denotes the bones and cartilage. ‘Stha’ means to stand, which is a function of the skeletal system.
Asthi or bone is which gives structure and stability to the body it is also protecting the internal organs and is nourishing the nervous tissue. It is derived from earth and wind element.
The upadhatu (secondary) tissue are teeth. This is the reason why often in osteoporosis or other imbalances in the asthi dhatu/ bone tissue the teeth are also weakened.
Asthi dhatu supports the muscle tissue (mamsa) and the body systems.
Asthi dhatu is heavy, rough, hard, solid and static. Charaka has mentioned 360 asthi (bones) and Sushruta mentioned 300 asthi.

Charaka mentioned in the Sutra sthana that the treatment fo asthi dhatu should be done with basti (enema) by using ksheera (milk), sarpi (ghee) and tikta rasa drugs.
