I read on another board that Acid-A-Cal could stop heel spurs and it works, I was suffering with pain for over six months and after three days of taking this stuff the pain is almost gone, I'm going to finish this bottle and hope the problem doesn't come back, if it does, I know what to get. Sure beats expensive and painful surgery!
I don't understand how this stuff works, it says it helps the absorption of calcium, perhaps the heel spurs are being reabsorbed?
This stuff works! People, please if you suffer from bone spurs, please give the Acid-A-Cal a try -it is the real deal. I cannot believe this worked on me. Thank you guys so much!
I developed a bone spur on the top of my foot and was discussing with an OS to do surgery to get rid if (shave it down). I then began obsessed with trying to find an alternative method. I cleaned up my diet, tried everything possible homeopathic. I came across this site and read about acid-a-cal. Interested, I went searched further and found a few other sites where ppl said it dissolved their spurs.
At the same time I also did a blood test to check my calcium levels which were a bit (just a bit) below normal. I bought it and began supplementing it 3x a day with meals. I kid you not, within 2 months my spurs have gone. Yes, they are gone. It began with the dull ache going away, then the perpetual redness fading (I'm guessing cause the spurs were shrinking and no longer pressing against soft tissue) and the last 2 weeks I literally was watching the spur shrink to now there is no spur.
I haven't shown it to my OS yet, but I believe he will be shocked. Beyond shocked! I am so grateful, happy and filled with renewed spirit. I love you all and thank you thank you thank you!
I developed a heel spur, went to see a foot specialist where they took a mold of my foot and then I was supplied special insoles. I was told up to six months I could have the insoles adjusted free of charge. Close to the six months' period, pain returned right in the center of my heel. The insole had a slanted heel.
I figured really how much can they change the insole, so I started reading online. For one thing I read that calcium, magnesium and phosphorus are needed by the body in certain proportions. It so happened that a while back I had broken three ribs and had been taking extra calcium supplements which I believe ended up creating an imbalance. I happened to have a little bottle with some liquid phosphorus on hand from a treatment for TMJ from way back when. I tried some of the drops and started to feel relief. So I went on line and ordered ionic phosphorus. And this has taken care of the problem. I now take it sometimes, just a little tsp. when I feel my heel is becoming sensitive again.
A month and a half ago, it was sheer agony just to walk to the mailbox; to get out of bed, I needed a cane. Then I came here and read-up on calcium.
For the past month and a half, I've been blasting calcium into my system with a daily dose of: a multi-vitamin with 162 mg of calcium in it, PLUS a tablet of 600 mg of calcium and 400 I.U. of Vitamin D.
Three days after starting my calcium-blasting, I noticed that I was feeling less pain. Now, a month and a half later, I am PAIN-FREE (except after I stand or walk a lot).
I would like to let everyone know that I came on this site to see what people were doing to relieve their heel pain because I was having heel pain so bad that I was not able to put any weight on it and was also getting sharp pains through the heel. It got so bad I was almost in tears (and I have a high toleance for pain!) So I had decided to take a Calcium supplement (calcium 250mg also has Mag 250mg,Vit D 200 i.u. and 7.5mg zinc as directed 2 tabs twice daily with a meal) and I have to tell you that it worked!!!
This morning I woke up and normally I limp for about an hour and then I still have a slight limp but got up and only felt a slight discomfort and was able to walk fine as the day went on!!
Hope this helps anyone that has been in my pain!!
I had heel spur for 2 or 3 years and I was looking at Surgery on my heels, I was telling my boss I might be out of work for 3-4 months. Then one day I went to a health store with my dad and a lady ask me if I need help and I said do you have any thing for heel spurs, She said yes Acid-A-Cal took it for 2-3 weeks and felt big big difference.so I kept taking it 3-4 bottles later Heel spur are all gone.
4 years later, no problems.
