Natural Cures for Degenerative Disc Disease

Last Modified on Nov 25, 2014

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Generally considered a disease of aging, degenerative disc disease is an age related condition. The spine is constantly subjected to stress and periodically, minor injury. These stresses combined begin to compound and cause damage over time. This gradual proliferation of damage or normal changes in the spinal discs is known as degenerative disc disease. For most individuals, the degeneration of discs causes little problem or concern; however, some individuals experience severe pain in conjunction with the condition.

The symptoms associated with degenerative disc disease vary depending on the intensity of the condition. The symptoms may result in back or neck pain in some while it causes no pain in others. One of the most common symptoms reported, when any are experienced, is sciatica, or pain that radiates from the low back into the buttocks and upper thighs. In addition to this pain, some individuals may experience tingling or numbness in the legs and feet.



The intervertebral discs or spinal discs are the padding or cushion between each vertebra of the spine. By comparison, these discs are somewhat like “shock absorbers” that cushion the spine as it moves and bears weight. As the body ages, these cushions break down, causing degenerative disc disease. Common causes that contribute to this breakdown include loss of fluid and tears and cracks in the disc. Injury, obesity, heavy physical work and smoking add to the degeneration of discs.

Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment

While degenerative disc disease is a common part of aging, certain measures can be taken to prevent degeneration and reverse the current levels of degeneration. One effective natural degenerative disc disease treatment includes 500 mg of Hyaluronic acid powder, 9 grams of sea salt, and 500 cc of water emulsified and taken daily. This mixture works to restore the cartilage in the discs. Additional options include vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium – all which support bone and joint health. A healthy lifestyle complete with regular exercise and light weight bearing exercise helps maintain bone and muscle health and serves as a supplement to degenerative disc disease treatment.

Hyaluronic Acid won't emulsify

I was excited to get my H/A powder. I followed the instructions from "Ted's Remedy". It immediately formed this clear, gelatinous globule at the bottom of the bottle. I shook it repeatedly throughout the day and got it mostly dissolved, only to wake up and find that it had settled overnight in to the globule again:(

I shook it vigorously again and dissolved it most of the way and drank a dose this morning.

The only thing I can think of is that I put the dry ingredients in the bottle first, then added cold water. I can't see how it could make a difference if I put the water in first?

Any advice? I'm really hopeful that this formula will help!

Water First!! And the 'Glouble' is the HA gelling, so that's okay. Other than that, just do as you're doing, when you see the gel bloob, shake till it mixes as per usual. Love Andrea C XXXX.

PS, I shook mine per Ted's remedy, following it to a tee. It's no good reading half a remedy but being gung ho about the rest.

Thanks Andrea!

Can anyone tell me where to find Ted's original post on this? All I can find is this comment thread. I've been poking around the website, but can't find it.

Hi, read about your solution for degenerative disc disease, how do I measure out 500 mg of HA powder........1/4 tspn or what?..... Please give me an idea of approximately howmuch to use. Thanks, Dano

Dano, it depends on which brand you are using, and if it is just HA, or has something like msm mixed into it, which would make your measurement different than if just HA. Purebulk, the brand I use, is, I believe, 3.56 grams (3560 mg) per 2 teaspoons. So, I break that down into approx. 1/7 of that dose, or 1/3 teaspoon. It's a little more (593 mg. ), but it doesn't make any difference, it's close enough. Be VERY sure you dissolve it in fridge temp. Water, NOT room temp water.

Hi Guys

It was just a question regarding the article I've copied in below. It's for treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease.

My Mother has been suffering with this for some time. I'm trying to get her to take the mixture of Hyaluronic Acid and 9 grams of sea salt but she's worried that taking so much salt is dangerous. Also she was worried about the Hyaluronic acid.

I just want to put her mind at rest really, would you be able to confirm that these levels of sea salt and Hyaluronic acid are safe to take over a period of time? Thanks

Joel

Joel:

The copy and paste portion of your post does not state who wrote it. If I were you, I would not follow it. 500 mg of hyaluron acid, per dose, or even per day, is way too much.

There is absolutely no reason to preserve it with all that salt...... just cold water. make it one day in advance. I believe that the dose is about 10 mg of H.A., dissolved in water, X twice per day. Store the H.A. water mixture in the refigerator, for up to 3 days.

There is no reason to give her all that sea salt, and eat all of that chloride, and all that sodium; just to get some trace minerals.. Just buy a ionic minerals supplement. Giving the trace minerals in ionic form.

Have her make herself some bone and cartilage broth by boiling down her collect meat scraps in a large pot. simmer for 3 days, or continuously, every day, on very low heat. Then can the broth in jars, or refrigerate. see the sally fallon books and websites. for details. That will give her cartilage and bone calcium as food. perhaps also hyaluron.... if it is not killed by heat.

Be carefull with giving her molybdenum supplements. I took those, 500mg each, for only 7 to 10 days, and they caused a copper deficiency in the spine cartilage, which gave me a sudden case of degegenerative disk disease. a bad case. I stopped the molyB and added extra copper as supplement pills. also took hyaluron powder dissolved in water for 4 hrs minimum. Seems like it was about 10 mg H.A. powder X twice per day. I recovered in about 4 or 5 weeks. I could not have tolerated 500 mg per day of H.A. I don't think anyone could either, and there is no need to.

QUESTION: did your mammy take the FOSAMAX, or Bisphosphonate class of osteoporosis drugs ???? If so, that is what happened to her spine. Get her off of them immediately and supply her bone nutrients to try and repair the damage done by the perscription drugs.

[YEA]  The best way to CURE degenerative disc disease is yoga... It will give you relief from the pain and agony. I suffered for almost five months and found a good yoga guru who cured me completely. I request all of them who suffer from any kind of back/spine problems to try Yoga once. You will experience a better life for sure.. Thankyou
