I've been diagnosed with degenerative disk disease. I want a natural substance for restoring my bones. Any suggestions?
Joann from Cole City, GA
well i know a lady told me long time ago and it is proven, you take these and your health will be great: one a day
vitamin c ( those are the chewables and they even alone are high in mg and have some of that in it)
the vitamin c tablets my mom only takes because of bones. So i hope this helps. I to have deg. disc disease and Rhuematics disease, fibromyalgia and IBS... So yeah it is terrific...
I too have this disease, and I know the pain you live with each day. I have found some natural products to use that has helped me. I no longer take pain medication that my dr told me I would need for the rest of my life. I would like to talk more with you about this. please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There isn't anything out there that will heal you of this either, so be careful of that. Believe me I know I tried everything. I am not 100% pain free but I no let my pain control my life, I control it. Looking forward to talking with you soon.
To the guest Heather that posted below please contact me at email@example.com I know of Non Toxic products that has helped others with some of the illnesses that you have like fibromyalgia, IBS, arthritise and many more. Would love to help you out and well as anyone else.
I also have your disc disease. What works for me is a monthly visit to my chiropractor. It doesn't work for everyone but has been an absolute lifesaver for me. It relieves my pain tremendously. When I get really down, like when I can't walk, I see him either on a daily basis or 3X week & in no time I'm walking. I also put an ice pack on my back for 15 minutes at a time several times a day. I also use a back brace when it's at a very painful stage. All of my suggestions are "natural" ways to go. Dr's never helped me. Take care & good luck.
I have had such success with the use of natural products to make life easier as the body ages. I too have fibromyalgia, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis. My rheumatologist cannot deny the difference they have made and is "disgusted" with the results that therapeutic strength glucosamine HCl has made in my body's joints. This actually enhances cartilage production and has improved mobility and flexibility. I had a neck fusion in 2000 and have not had to have the rest fused since getting healthier with what I found. See what Long-Term Health Risks are Common to Household Products. Go to www.healthywealthyandnontoxic.com for evidence. I would gladly assist you if you wish to learn more of what is making the difference to enhance my conditions.
Yep! I'm another fellow sufferer. I don't know if it has helped, but I take calcium and vitamin D tablets, but I also do Yoga to strengthen the muscles that support my spine. To put it bluntly I was diagnosed at the age of 16, and told I would be in a wheel chair by the time I was 30 and not to make any plans for after 40.
I will be 50 this year, and I'm still walking and talking, and on good days I can even do a little dancing. The pain can still be a bit of a well, 'pain', so 15 years ago I stopped eating chocolate, except for when the pain got bad. It contains diphenilanyline,(sp?) which is a natural pain killer, and I eat a few pieces of a block, drink a cup of strong coffee, the caffine helps the diphenilanyline work faster, and within 15 mins I'm back on an even keel.
My heart goes out to you. Not something I would wish on my worst enemy.
I was MIS-diagnosed years ago with this, but in case I really had it, rather than RX, or surgery, I began with Jarrow's Bone-UP caplets ( on a full stomach), which isn't cheap, but can be bought at Whole Foods or any Health food / supply store, I believe. I also take an additional Calcium/Vit. D to get my calcium up to about 1000 mg. per day. It really makes a difference. I read and heard from so many others that all doctors try to say most who are aging or who have ANY sort of back pain, have this condition. I suspect it's a way to make more money and have a steady supply of patients/income. Regardless, that was about 26 years ago. and I have not had surgery
or worse problems since. If you take Vit. C, take it at night, I hear, and never at the same time as Vit. A, because they cancel each other out somehow.
God bless and help you with His wisdom, knowledge and understanding. : )
I also have DDD and I take a Glucosamine complex tablet every day. Glucosamine and it's added ingredients help to resore lost cartilage. It was prescribed to me many years ago by my chiropractor, and I swear by it. God bless you!
is DDD hereditary? My dad has it, and I've been experiencing severe back and hip pain over the past year, no insurance so i'm leery of spending money at the docs just to be told, like dad, that nothing can be done.
This is off the track, but my Dachshund developed degenerative disk disease - we tried steroid therapy to no avail. My own doctor suggested glucosamine. We started giving Tucker two tablets a day - he has gone from paralyzed to walking! Glucosamine is a wonder drug for these crippling diseases! My vet is astounded, too!

My Dr. just started my on 50,000IU of vit D, one a week for 12 weeks. Then 2000 in the morning and 2000 at night of vit D3.My vit D level was down to 14. I have DDD and I believe I could have prevented some bone loss had I been taking vit D. It might be worth your while to have a
vit D level test done. Do some research. I just started the treatment so I can't tell you to much about a difference it has made.
I heard some good stories. I found out I have degenerative disc disease and I'm only 16. I only hear stories about being crippled within 15 years and how I should have some form of operation done, or get back on vicoden, which I hate. I am a musician who plays at least a show a week, and I just don't want to be limited and I HATE doctors, any advice?
