Has anyone ever heard of using Knox gelatin to get rid of bone spurs? My mother used it several times and once I had them and it worked. I don't remember the amount though.

I have tried soaking an 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.

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...

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.

DMSO

Bone spurs are caused by ineffective calcium metabolism or excess calcium. What you need to do is find some food rich with silica, such as horsetail, or get some chemical alternative such sodium metasilicate.

Secondly, you need boron supplements to allow proper calcium bone metabolism.

Thirdly, proper bone metabolism also depends on proper levels of potassium which is found in bananas and electrolyte drinks. Magnesium is abundant in leafy dark green vegetables that is taken or eaten in raw. Take also sunflower seeds (salted or unsalted) as they are rich in magnesium.

DMSO helps with absorption, but don't forget that a 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt per liter of water will also be helpful with the bone conditions. Dosages of magnesium in form of magnesium chloride is about 500-1000 mg/day. Boron is best at about 5-10 mg/day. Silica supplements is about 100 mg/day. Most people in U.S. are actually silica and boron deficiency. Israel's drinking water is high in boron which is why they have relatively low in bone spurs compared with U.S. I suspect that excess calcium and excess fluoride is a major culprit in bone spurs - everyone with bone spurs seems to use fluoride toothpaste and seems to interfere with calcium metabolism. This happens in plants also, which is why pesticides must be low in fluoride for it stunts plant growth as well.

Plumbing Washer

Heel spurs are the easiest to remove and I mean remove. No operation needed. Just get a plumbing washer that fits comfortable, tape it to your heal exactly centered to the bone spur with duct tape.

Pain will be gone, and you will feel just a mild discomfort. After about two weeks (the more you walk or run the faster the results) you will see a white spot in the middle of the washer. Walk another couple of days just to be sure, then remove the washer, get a good sterilized needle, go into the white spot (you will hardly feel anything) about half inch and come out. Now squeeze the entire heel moving toward the center of the white spot and out comes the calcium that was misdirected because you did not take enough magnesium and vitamin K.

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.

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.

Dear Sandy,

A neighbor introduced me to a salve that I have been using for everything! It has comfrey root in it, which I think it why it is so helpful. I have been using it on my hip bones when my bursitis flares up. I used it on my son's knee that he injured falling out of a tree, and on my toe that I dislocated. It has been helpful for all.

Have you ever tried the borax protocol?

And, of course there is always castor oil to massage into the feet and knees at bedtime.

Epsom salt baths at the end of the day might also be helpful and a nice reward for your walking and gardening.

Do you have good shoes? A supportive comfortable shoe is important.

I hope you will find one or more of these helpful! Keep me posted!

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.


Multiple Remedies

I am 45 and I have bone spurs on my spine, feet, and hands. One bone spur on my right thumb ruptured in 2002. I lost some function in my right hand to the point of getting my thumb caught and broken twice. I was 380 pounds, pre-diabetic, and walking on broken bones in my feet quite often (Lots of broken toes and my right ankle). Last October 2009 I was hurting and could not breath (Darth Vader had more stealth then I did).

I am a man that should be in his prime but I was unable to work. My ego was more then broken.

I found the solution and in the last 6 months I've been experimenting to make sure its the real deal. Here it is:

First- Vitamin D3 6000 IUs a day (get a non-oil preparation)

Second- No oils, No fried food, No deep fried food, and NO MARGARINE of any kind

Third- No soda of any kind (lowers body pH for 36 hours)

Fourth- Lots of eggs, butter, and avocados real fat (if it won't rot in three days or less don't eat it)

Fifth- Meat needs to be cooked under 210 Degrees for a longer time to keep the fat body ready (the flavor and texture is so much improved anyway).

Sixth- There is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate sugar, starch, or fiber (think of these as fertilizer for good and bad bacteria and fungi in the intestines and body) Celiac and Fungi both produce a intestine damaging protein that stops mineral absorption. If eating the fiber gluten doesn't trip it sugar feeding a fungi may. This intestinal distress can last 2 weeks per episode of gluten eaten.

Seventh- Body pH is the problem. Your bones are part of the body's endocrine system. the bones bank minerals for use in hormone production. however they also dump large amounts of calcium into the blood stream to counter low blood pH if needs be. Bad fats (even bottled olive oil) and carbohydrates lower body pH causing such an event.

Eighth- Eat salt, good sea salt, you need salt to make hydrochloric acid to digest food and absorb minerals (chloride ion from salt). You need sodium bicarbonate made in the pancreas and kidneys to get the minerals to the cells. (sodium from salt)

Ninth- get 60 essential minerals, 16 essential vitamins, 12 essential proteins, and 3 essential fatty acids daily. I have been using a supplement with a good balance. But, I have 7000 to 12000 MG Calcium with Boron, copper, and the rest in combination with clean gelatin to rebuild my bone matrix and tissue.

Tenth- I drink high pH waters with an ORAC count below -300. I also drink (Ferric Ferrus salt in my water) This salt in an aquarium will support both salt water and fresh water fish simultaneously in the same water for years.)

Eleventh- to get my fungi under control I've been using 1 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate in 8 or 12 Oz water every morning for 1 month then off for 2 weeks then 1 more month.

Twelveth- eating less good food daily keeps the body from taxing pH reserves and builds bones back faster. Bone spurs are a symptom of osteoporosis. It can be healed in 6 months (documented). I've made progress I can walk again and my weight is falling off, My diabetes went away, and I haven't broken a toe in months still fighting with the fungi. Gluten hides in a lot of food. Just a little stops the bones healing until my guts heal in usually two weeks per episode.

More notes:

Pasteurized milk will not help but hinder the healing of bones. Raw milk has a balance of enzymes, proteins, fats, calcium, and other minerals and vitamins, However, pasteurizing milk kills the enzymes throwing the amino acid (protein), fatty acids, and mineral pH (Calcium and other minerals) out of balance in so much that it requires additional calcium and minerals to now digest the milk.

Homogenized milk imbalances the minerals and fatty acids even more as once homogenized milk fat no longer needs to be digested to leave the intestine wondering in the blood stream unsupervised.

I worked in a health food store and the herbalist there always suggested enzymes for bone spurs, catch is you have to have a powerful protolectic type and you have to take 2-3 on and EMPTY stomach so they work thru-out your system and not on your food but you have to take 12-16 a day for a month or two and it will dissolve the spur where ever it is. Several customers came back in and said within a week they had relief from pain.

Apple cider vinegar DOES work for heel spurs. You don't drink it. Before you go to bed wet a cotton ball with ACV and rub it over your entire foot and let it dry. My chiropractor gave me this remedy. I could not even put my foot down on the floor in the morning without excruciating pain. The first morning after using it I could not only step down on my foot but I could walk across the floor. There was still some pain- comparable to the pain/discomfort you have at the end of the day after walking on it. Believe me- THIS WORKS!!!

As I read so many of you saying "let me know if it works.." I wonder why you don't just try it and see if it does work for you.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Blackstrap Molasses, Baking Soda
Posted by Debi (Los Angeles, California) on 12/13/2013

Angela from Australia~ I do 1 TB OACV, 1 ts OBSM and just about 1/4 ts Bicarb. I put it in hot (not boiling) water and drink as a tea every morning. Put the Bicarb and OACV in first, it will bubble a bit, then the OBSM. Sometimes I even squeeze in 1/2 lemon (good for liver/gall bladder first thing in the morning).

Also for the foot, I had a heel spur where my achilies attaches to the arch and one on the heel. I had read on here somewhere about rubbing AVC on it so I went one step further. Soak an ace bandage in the ACV and wrap the area. Then I put my foot in a large zip type plastic bag and used tape to secure at the top. The next morning I was pain free! Remember, a bone spur is a bone spur, ACV will help where ever it is located. Some places you woud just soak some type of pad and maybe tape plastic wrap to hold it in place. ACV is a little miracle in a bottle!


Cabbage Leaves, Kombucha Scoby

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.

DMAE Detoxification

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.


Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 (Not K1) which drives the calcium to the right places and drives calcium away from the wrong places. Yes, when I have it in stock, (it's expensive) my wrists and thuimbs are strong, but when I run out they hurt again. But more than this, K2 also keeps your blood vessels clear.

My husband gets a rash if he uses apple cider vinegar straight as well.

Yes, dilute if you want to try it again, or just use the apple cider vinegar internally as a daily tonic. 1 Tablespoon in a glass of water once or twice a day. Might not work as quickly, but it does help many.

About 10 yrs ago, I had plantar fasciitis. I used the castor oil massage followed at bedtime by a saturated cotton ball directly over the site, covered by piece of plastic bag, a not too tight ace wrap, and a sock. I wore Haflinger brand wool clogs (excellent arch support) any time I was not wearing shoes. I took turmeric daily, 1/2 tsp beaten into an egg. fried "scrambled" fashion until just done (turmeric breaks down under excessive heat. Absorbed better with a fatty carrier.) Not bad. In a week the pain was greatly reduced. Over time, all pain was gone. After about a year, I could not detect the place where the bone spur had formed on my heel.

I now go bare foot again and the problem has not recurred.


DMSO With Horsetail

If you are using DMSO as a carrier for herbs to treat BONE SPURS topically, two of the best herbs to use are HORSETAIL (Scouring Rush) & STINGING NETTLE (Urtical Diorica). I would suggest adding the liquid extract to the DMSO instead of the dried herb. Equal amounts of each would probably be okay. Herbs & homeopathic remedies high in silica content have been used a long time to treat bone spurs & help remove them. The herbal teas of the same plants can be used internally to treat the condition, as well.

This is to Bancheck in Idaho Falls... I sympathize with you. I walked for several years with my foot bones continually broken to some degree... Heal... Then re-break again. Dmso has worked miracles for me. Can take it internally 5 drops in a glass a day or make a 70% dmso and 30% carrier oil and spray where it on 3-4 x day. If no sensitive skin can apply straigtht to skin. Look at Dmso.Org.Nz. This stuff has done miracles for me and my horse too. Good luck. I too have changed my diet similar to yours and yes that has helped so much. No meat. Similar eating habits to the Garden of Eden. Ironic, huh? Garden of Eden heals and mans habits of eating cause disease. Those of us, like you and me, are figuring this out and changing.

If ACV can be rubbed on heel spurs, will it help with neck spurs too?
