I have a bone spur on my big toe. Not much pain but it's no longer flexible like it was. When I try to bend it when I walk that's when I feel a burning pain. Been using Organic ACV with the mother. One tbsp in the morning and one at night. I've been doing this less than a week so haven't noticed anything different so far. Also, just started with Magnesium powder. I've read about boron/borax but seems like it's important to get the magnesium levels up in the body before taking boron, but keeping it in mind. Any advice would be appreciated!
I had been dealing with debilitating knee issues and I thought the cause was scar tissue. so I went to an orthopedist where, of course, knee replacement surgery was recommended. I did not like the answer, so I bought some tools to work the scar tissue away, but problems ensued. After more research, I realized the pain was caused by osteophytes or, bone spurs.
More research suggested apple cider vinegar may have some benefits in dissolving of the calcium build up. I still had nearly a full bottle so I began taking 1-2 table spoons full each morn a week ago, and I am quite pleased with the results thus far.
Of course the BIG arthritis foundations call it a myth and suggest, you guessed it, FDA approved pharmaceutical medications.
I have tried soaking ace bandage in apple cider vinegar for a bone spur. Put in plastic bag overnight and my foot by next morning my area that was very swollen had almost gone down to normal. I was diagnosed with bone heel spur and calcification and Dr.wanted to do surgery and sever my tendon. No way. PLEASE try the vinegar and overnight and maybe a few times. It works. Believe me.

I have a bone spur and walking had become really painful, especially when I woke up in the morning. I tried vinegar and it worked.
I soaked a washcloth in apple cider vinegar, wrapped it around my heel and put my foot in a gallon sized food storage bag. My husband thought I was crazy. I kept the bag and washcloth on my foot for about two hours (while I watched TV) for three evenings. My foot feels so much better. It's not perfect, but so much better. I can walk again without pain. I don't know how it works, but it does. I am going to keep using it until there is absolutely no discomfort at all.
I had to hop on here and let you know that ACV has helped my bone spur (maybe even eliminated it?) pain 100%. I had plantar fasciitis for a year, which then created a bone spur. Through physical therapy, I feel that the fasciitis is finally gone, but the spur remained and caused a new, different kind of pain. I'm a ballet teacher and really didn't want to have surgery, because it would put me out of commission for two months. In desperation, I did a google search, found this website, and, nervous about drinking ACV, applied it topically.
I have one of those foot braces that keeps your foot flexed while you sleep, which turned out to be perfect. I would soak a washcloth in ACV, ring it out, and wrap it around the base of my heel. Then I tied a grocery bag around it (it reeks. You gotta contain the smell...)Then put my foot brace over the top of the bag. Then tied a handkerchief over the outside of the heel to keep it pressed right against the skin all night. The next morning, I could walk with zero pain. It got sore as the day progressed, but not nearly as bad as usual. I've been doing it for a week now and it has been amazing. I can dance and jump and turn with my students again. So grateful for this site and the reviews people have given. Now I have a pulled tendon on my other foot and found that ACV works for that, too. Thank goodness for ACV.

About 4 years I got a recipe for ACV, Blackstrap and Bicarb to cure spurs, which I used and it did. But now a friend of mine would like the recipe but I can't remember to the ratio and I can't find it on your site any more. Could someone please help with it. Thanks, Regards Angela

To treat Bone Spurs, you suggest 3 treatments:
Apple Cider Vinegar (Ã¢Â€Âœ1 tablespoon in 1 glass of water, twice a day), Ginger, and Turmeric
re Ginger: "Dr. Weil suggests a standard treatment dose of two 500 mg tablets three to four times a day" > how much fresh ginger is equivalent to a 500mg tablet?
re Turmeric Ã¢Â€Âœtake 400-600 mg three times a dayÃ¢Â€Â > how much dried ground turmeric is equivalent to 400-600 mg?
I have bone spurs in my fingersÃ¢Â€Â¦ I suppose from typing on the computer keyboardÃ¢Â€Â”any suggestions or direction towards more information re preventing them-- eg are there certain types of keyboards that help with this?
Any other suggestions about the prevention of Bone Spurs Ã¢Â€Â“ eg nutritionally?
thank you :)
Your article on how to dissolve bone spurs incorrectly states bone spurs are a result of too much acid in the system. Bone spurs are a result of too high a PH, or too much alkaline. Almost every other thing I've read supports this, and contradicts your statements about too much acid.
EC: Thanks. We'll research this more and make adjustments to the introductory article.
I have Pump Bump (Haglund's Deformity) more than ten years. Physio and med. doctors can't help. Spent lots of money and wasted time. What helps wonderful to reduce swelling is fresh cabbage leaves. I apply it not only all night but even keep it on during all day when staying home. No mess and no pain. Also very effective to reduce swelling is Kombucha's scoby. Without these precautions my foot get swollen afternoon and evening. Also I taken Boswellia tablets 3x . I'm still need some advice how to get rid of inflammation. I refused take antibiotics - doctor prescribed Voltaren.
Sorry for poor English( Its my third language). I hope cabbage leaves and scoby will help to some people.
I used castor oil on my feet at night to get rid of bone spurs on the bottom of my feet. After showering I rubbed a generous amount of castor oil on my feet put on socks and slept with them on all night for about 1 month. The bone spurs are gone and my feet feel so much better. I recommend that to anyone with aching feet. It works.
I have a bone spur on one of my hips due to the stage 4 osteoarthritis I dealt with. Of course, the stem cell therapy has taken care of my hips and I am swimming quite a bit these days. So now, the hip pain is gone but my muscles get pretty sore these days! A welcome exchange, for sure!
The one thing I have noticed is, the bone spur which I saw on my x-ray when I went for my treatment is still apparent when I run my hand over my right hip. After doing research, I see castor oil can rid bone spurs. So, yesterday I began using it. I noticed that there are no posts regarding castor oil as a remedy for bone spurs here on EC. I'm excited to try this to see the results take hold.
Is there anyone out there who has actually used this castor oil for bone spurs successfully? I have used other Edgar Cayce remedies with success so I anticipate the same for this. Still I would love to hear from anyone who has actually done this. Thanks, Lisa
For bone spurs, try taking 1 1/2 tablespoons of food grade Diatomaceous Earth every morning and late afternoon. DE boosts your energy levels and can keep some people awake when you should be sleeping.
My bone spur is gone from my right heel, and the neuropathy, which developed after having a bone spur surgically removed from my left foot, is completely gone.
The arthritis in my ankles and wrist has subsided, as well.
I bought mine from a Farm Store and paid $20 for a 10 pound bag, which should last me 8 months. Good Luck...
Bone spurs are often a result of fluoride ingestion, primarily from fluoridated water and/or dental treatments. DMAE detoxifies fluoride as shown by years of clinical findings at the Bioenergy Balancing Centers in California.
About a month ago I closed my right hand into a fist and saw I had a lump the size of a pea on my index finger knuckle. My husband suggested it might be a bone spur. I started putting DMSO on it. I used the DMSO about four times over a week or 10 days. I noticed that the lump was shrinking about 4 days into the treatment. It is now almost gone. I am so excited that I just had to share.
