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.
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.
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.
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.
Eucalyptus oil dissolves bone spurs
How I dissolve bone spurs. I massage my feet at bedtime & after my morning shower with coconut oil & Eucalyptus oil.
I had been using only the coconut oil for years, but when I added the eucalyptus oil, I started getting relief w/in a few days.
1/4 tsp coconut oil + 5 drops of Eucalyptus oil. For any bone pain (osteoarthritis), I add 2 drops lavender oil. Rub palms to mix, then massage the whole foot sole, especially where the spurs/pains are. Cover w/ankle socks until absorbed (about 10 min). If I'm up walking around afterward, I wear crocs.
It takes 1-2 months to totally dissolve bone spurs!
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.
In response to Lynn's post from 2008:
..."I have a question and I don't know if anyone has an answer, but my brother in law has a bone chip on his ankle. He has had surgery once to "fix" it but it didn't work, the pain is back, and he is once again, walking with a cane. I don't know how big this bone chip is, but is there anyway to either dissolve the bone chip, or to get the bone chip to attach to his ankle?"
Bone spurs can be disolved by soaking in milk until they are weakened and reabsorbed into the body. To hasten & enhance the process, massage the bone spur while soaking. People with bone spurs on the feet use a tennis ball in the soaking pan and roll it around with the foot to help breakdown the bone (while soaking in milk), thereby lessing painful spurring. It can takes weeks/months of regular soaking depending on the size/loction of the spur.
Mimosa is useful for bone spur. It is also useful for detoxing our body of toxins. It is an effective Cancer Killer as it can get rid of toxins which is one of the main cause of Cancer. Our body when clear of toxins can function well and allow our immune system to effectively kill the Cancer cells naturally.
For Medical uses, the pink flower, red stem type of mimosa is most useful. All parts of mimosa can be used to treat Cancer but the most important part is the roots. Mimosa can be soak overnight for easy washing. Mimosa should be cook in very low flame for 2 to 3 hour as this process can get rid of the mild toxins in this useful plant.
18 red dates and 12 slices of old ginger should also to added for better results.This herbs should be taken on empty stomach for best results.If you are not a vegetarian, you can also add some garlic for better results. After taking this herbs patients can expect to pass out black and smelly feces.
Mimosa is also effective for internal injury, diabetes, kidney problems, liver problem, diarrhea, skin problems, arthritis, urinary tract stone, rheumatism, anti-aging, child fever, relieve cough, clear phlegm, sprain injury, insomnia, gastric infection, clearing excessive heat in body, promote urination, bronchial infection, child indigestion, stiff neck, bone spur, piles, thyroid, blood purifier etc etc.
If fresh mimosa is not available, you can buy it from chinese medical shop.
Bone spur patients are to abstain from kang kong, carrot, banana, celery, peanut.
NOTE: Not suitable for pregnant woman.

My xrays in recent months revealed that I have hip bone spurs as a result of moderate hip arthritis and I am only 40. Clearly disappointed... did a lot of reading on natural remedies and have started trying the following:
1. Apple Cider Vinegar (1 Tbsp per day diluted in 500ml water)
2. Glucosamine Chondroitin (Glucosamine 1500mg/day)
3. Supplement containing Vitamin A, C, D3, E, B1, B2, B6 and B12 and also has Mg, Copper, Boswellia Serrata,
4. Vitamin D3 1000IU (1 tablet daily)
5. Once in a while I take Calcium Magnesium (333mg/167mg resp)
Its been 6 weeks since I started on this protocol and have seen some relief to my hip pain. If any of you have tried other remedies please share. I am heavily counting on ACV, Glucosamine and Mendamine to reverse my condition if possible to the least slow my progression.
FYI, I am not in pain but some discomfort occasionally in groin and buttock area. Feel the pain when I get in/out of car but its a very mild pain. Also, I walk on treadmill for 2 miles (30 mins) everyday for 4 to 5 days a week for last few weeks.

Hi, I need some advice on my pills I'm taking, I'm 37 went to dr for pain in neck found out its a bone spur due to bad posture of my neck as I am a hair stylist always tilting on one side and I have doing it for almost 9 years.
I started DMSO rubbing twice a day
magnesium 500 mg once a day
2 pills of vitamin C 3 times a day
Lysine 1000mg Once a day and ACV 2 twice a day.
Now I have noticed that my joints keeps cracking and makes noise and my left arm muscles hurt a lot as if someone is pulling from inside. I my calcium ok or what should I do. my feet hurt a lot and feels tired at all times.
Am I doing anything wrong, it worries me, Ted please guide me with right amount or if I'm missing on anything. Please reply soon. Ty for the feedback and comments would be really appreciated. ty again.
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.
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.

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.

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.
