I have recently under gone NA (needle aponeurotomy) procedure to remedy DC on both hands. Very succesful! So pleased that I did not have the surgery recommended by medical experts.

I have Dupuytrens in both hands, and was told by my doctor that there is no cure, and that it would get worse and only an operation would cure it. I went on a paleolithic diet, and my Dupuytrens subsided remarkably. When I break the rules, it grows again, but subsides when I go back to the correct eating. Also, massaging cold pressed Apricot oil, or any vitamin e oil into the Dupuytrens helps.

Dear Dillis,

Did you see any improvement with using cold pressed Apricot oil, oe Vitamine E?

There is a man in New Hampshire who makes, and sells SSKI. It's very expensive for the large bottle, but, I figured if I don't have to use it on Dupuychen's, I could use it for if we ever need it for a radiological release... Just type in SSKI New Hampshire.

You might try zinc and vitamin E. Together they work wonders.

I had shooting pain from dupuytren's contracture. These supplements slowed the progression and greatly reduced the stabbing pain that would wake me. My thumb had stopped functioning and that function returned.

  • 400 MG Magnesium Glycinate - recommended by DC Foundation.
  • 30 MG UC-II (10mg undernatured) turns off the pain of arthritis. Take on an empty stomach 1st thing in the morning.
  • PABA 6 g/ day. Recommended by Dr Wright of the Tahoma Clinic.
  • MSM 1 teaspoon once a day

Finally, limiting sugar/Carbs may help.

I've been researching anything that might help with either TRIGGER FINGER or DUPUYTREN's CONTRACTURE. This is for my husband who is a keyboardist. I have started him on P-5-P 3x a day, in addition to all the other things he takes.

He is also a diabetic and from what I have read he also has THAT going against him for this issue.

I am using the patches instead of having him ingest NSAIDS, which does help. I put a splint on it at night. I also have been using DMSO, Magnesium oil, lavender and frankincense essential oils. We've been using Mag Citrate for a few years now, once I realized how good it is for you, especially as we are in our 60s.

I've read someplace that 20 mg BORON, divided doses, a day is helpful, but I wanted to make sure that this would not cause a problem at that dosage, or what I should look for and consider taking in addition if taking that dosage.

Thank you

I started getting a lump on my hand just below my middle finger and discovered I had Dupuytren's Contracture. I read Vitamin E could help with this problem. I started to take 800 IU of Vitamin E. By the third day the lump was was just about gone. I couldn't believe how fast it worked. Vit E is the only change I made.


Wan Hua Oil

Posted by Sarah (Galway) on 10/26/2015

Hi, my mother had the surgery for Dupuytren's Contracture and it didn't cure it but helped. It was however very painful with a long recovery time. I just today saw a cure though called Wan Hua Oil (a bit late for her then, but maybe for others).

A therapist called Dr. Harvey Kaltsas describes how to use it on page 8 of his piece on natural oils of chinese medicine.

It apparently works in a few weeks when used nightly. It removes hardened masses too and he says "works to moisten the tendon sheathes so they move smoothly and allows the fingers to open and close without catching".

Anyway you can read more if you google the oil. Hope that helps!

Curing Dupuytren's Contracture by carrying a heavy thing. Hi, my friend told me that she cured her Dupuytren's Contracture by carrying a heavy thing by her finger, that is what an old woman told her to do. She said when she go to the grocery, she carry her shopping bags by her finger. After many times, the finger return back to its normal position.

I started to get dupuytrens in both hand several years ago when I had some severe health problems. The alternative health practioner suggested I had a deficiency of zinc. When I started taking zinc supplements (25mg per day) the nodules and the contractures started to significantly subside. (I can open my hands fully.... But sometimes still have some weakness. ) I occassonally get flareups where the hands get more painful and I start to get a nodule in each foot. (Often when I've forgotten my zinc. ) But it has always subsided again.

Here is a better translation than what google provided:

"I suffer from this illness called "DUPUYTREN" I have already been operated in the right hand and it's already started to come out in my left hand and of course I'm worried where else it might come out, how is it possible that this age old sickness still has no cure, I can't believe it; no one in my family, as a result; the result of this mysterious illness am 43yrs of age an 98 kilos, I have no habits and lost my job because of this illness!"

Hope this helps!

Lady Barron,

Did you still see improvements when consistent using extra dosing supplement 25 mg Zinc?

I agree with Jean in Kentucky. My hand has just started to grow nodules. My father had DC.

I have started to use 2 modalities. I use ultrasound ( physio strength type twice daily on a low frequency for 5 mins. I then use DMSO and saturated potassium iodide ( not iodine) with magnesium oil. The key is the Potassium iodide, but you need the DMSO to drive the SSKI and magnesium oil into the area. I only received the Potassium iodide today, and the nodules have already softened and flattened out.

There are a couple of Doctors on the internet, one called Tucker. Research it a and see. There is also a Utube video made by a young Australian man who will give you the quantities to use. His partner had severe DC and her hand is now flat.
