Building up Cartlidge

Posted by Terri-Lynn on April 07, 2003 at 19:37:14:

Favor for a friend to help a friend; Wanted me to ask the board if anyone knew of something that worked wonders for rebuilding cartlidge;
Supposedly this person inherited this, where they cartlidge never builds up like other people.
Now of course the doctors want to do surgery on his knee's and replace them, he is in his earily 40's. Sounds like he needs to really make some changes to me, since i believe they inherited there eating patterns also;
Hum, Well i haven't had the opportunity as of yet to see this person to hear what they are doing, but i told them i would post this to all of you; The only thing i know besides getting healthier is to use the Hydralyzed Bovine Collogen which is in a product called Arthred by Allergy Research; Please post anyone who knows more;

Yes, the Arthred rebuilds cartilage nicely. It's in the Arthaffect that I use for arthritis in my fingers. When I don't use it for a while, the pain comes back, as well. Feel free to e-mail, Terry-Lynn.

There are lots of nutrients that can build up the cartilage. Glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, CMO, minerals, trace minerals, are among the best. However, one's nutritional status, circulatory system, genetics, hormone levels, and toxic accumilation play a large role in the regeneration of cartilage. In fact, I believe these factors are more important than taking in the above-mentioned nutrients. I suggest a comprehensive medical work-up by a holistic physician trained in both conventional and alternative methods. If hormones are deficoient, thay can be increased, if toxins are accumilated, nutrients and chelation therapy can be administered. If blood flow is lacking, nutrients and exercise can increase blood flow as well as chelation and prolotherapy. Let me know when you more about his medical history. Until then, I hope this helps

Thank You Hy for just the confirmation about the toxic level and again not get caught up in the person's wording and inherited stuff as if there was no way out; I know that, but it is great to give her this info from another also; I will muscle test this young man, if his boss really wants him to have some help,[ she is a friend of mine] and find out the stress factors causing that is hindering him now and then get him to the right people;

Thank You Cheezi, i will also write you later, thank you for the confirmation on using the things i know.

My mom has had a severely arthritic knee, and according to X-rays, there seemed no cartilage left. However, she recently had another X-ray test, and there was a definite layer of cartilage, which amazed her doctor.

She did only two things that she thinks might have positively affected her knee. One is visiting a shaman two or three times and applying his pictures to the knees (if I remember correctly). The other one is what I think most likely helped her Ė wearing a magnetic applicator on her knee. She used Nikken brand. She didnít wear it every dayÖ only when it hurt, but since it hurt pretty often, she wore it often. And itís been demonstrated that magnets improve metabolism in areas of applications. She didnít take any specialized supplements. She did try to stay on relatively low carb diet, at my insistence.

Adding glucosamine supphate 750 milligrams twice a day woudl add to the effectiveness of what she is doing.

Re: Dr. Stoll - Knee Cartilidge - Can it rebuild itself?

I'm wondering if sometimes cartlidge can rebuild itself. When I was in my 20's I had a very bad attack after playing tennis a lot. The doctor told me I had Chondromalacia Patella. It was so bad I could hardly walk right after the first attack. My knees were weak for a long time, especially when going down lots of stairs or downhill. He said it was a degenerative condition and there was nothing I could do about it. It then went into remission.
Now it's about 23 years later and I'm thrilled to say I've never had another attack. I go on the treadmill for an hour every other day and my knees feel like new. It's like I've never had a problem, yet I had no treatment and never took Glucosamine. Is it really completely healed?

I am sure some stores sell them, but not all magnetic applicators are of equal quality. I personally don't have enough data to compare different brands.

Thanks, Walt. I know that, but that would also significantly increase her expenses, and she has a very limited budget.

I believe it can if there's enough nutrients in the body for this. But health of some people is so bad, that there might not be enough resources to rebuild cartilage quickly enough.

Hi, Reader.

Everything is incurable until we figure out how the body can cure itself or we figure out a way to help it cure itself. After this length of time I think you can safely say that your body figured out how to cure itself.

Listen to R.

All glucosamine does, so far is already known, is apply the LeChatelier's Principle to the body's mechanisms in this area.

Since this happened so early in life, it might indicate that you have a slight genetic propensity for this area to break down. SO, if it ever recurs you will know what it is and then, at your age, I would recommend underwater exercises only and glucosamine to help reverse the problem. The older you are the more help your knees will need.

Thank you Dr. Stoll and R. I thought I would have to go through life with this form of arthritis, but I ski, walk, etc. and never have a problem. The only thing I won't do is kneel - I think that's harder on the knees than sports.

Thanks, R.

You must know that I am cognizant of those factors. After all I have practiced medicine for more than 30 years and always put my office in the middle of the poorest part of the state or the poorest part of the city.

All I can do is tell the truth and the individual has to determine what part of that truth they can participate in.

Namaste`

Walt
