Remedies Helped Husband With Myelomalacia

I am writing regarding my husband's success at treating Myelomalacia (softening of the spinal cord) resulting from 2 spinal cord tumor surgeries. Upon receiving notice that the tumor had returned yet a 3rd time we got busy researching and came up with a protocol for life. First, don't accept the pronouncements that you won't get better! You can!

My husband drinks Chaga tea every day- 12 oz mug, at least 2-3 times a day, then an Intervenous Vitamin C treatments every month from our Naturopath, also Infra-red Saunas once a week. He takes much turmeric, Vitamin D3, Magnesium, and Chinese herbs ( Chin-ko @ Curcuma, and Zedoaria Tablets- both with a long list of ingredients and both Seven Forest brand), CoQ10, and organic unrefined coconut oil. He eats less, but more healthy meals, green salads, green superfood drink, and goes fishing/hunting when he can for enJOYment.

The tumor has decreased in size, as well as the area softened and effected by the surgeries... The MRI technician just smiled this last time and said "See ya in 1 year! " And we just wish to say we are so very grateful to EarthClinic for all the great advice we have received for so many years by all the contributors, and also dear Ted from Bangkok. We hope this helps someone out there...

Multiple Supplements for Spinal Cord Injury

I'm a 68 yr. old disabled combat veteran of Vietnam. I've had numerous back injuries over the decades starting in 1967 and an enemy anti-tank mine and in '68 two helicopter crashes. I retired in 2002 after 10 years as a working Rancher / Cowboy. In 2011 the VA gave me a 120cc steroid injection for a painful bulging L-4 disc. They missed and injected directly into the bulging disc...it exploded into fragments resulting in Caudal Equina Symptom. I was not expected to every walk again. It took me 16 months to gradually get back on my feet.

In Oct. 2011 I was broadsided by an SUV and that damaged my T-9 disc. T-9 follows the dermatome pathway from T-9 around your rib cage at the bottom all the way to the front of your rib cage. The pain is pretty bad just under the lower last rib on the right side.

I ordered a Dermatome Chart from Amazon.com its a plastic coated Medical Chart that shows you the nerve pathway of every spinal nerve from the spine to its conclusion. L-4 damage travels from the source down the Butt, across the right side of the thigh to the knee. After that it runs along the right side of the shin down to the ankle where it crosses to the inner arch to the big toe. This pathway is usually numb and subject to spasms and intense cramping.

Therefore we tend to treat the area of "symptom"... not the area of "origin".

I use a combination of Magnesium, Turmeric, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Benfotiamine, Vitamin B-12 complex and B-12 injectable and supplements of B-2 and B-6.

This one dose stops the pain from muscle spasms for up to 5 days. After 3 months its now up to 2 weeks. I'm going to begin adding DMSO with herbal "Helichrysum essential oil". I believe the last two will lead from "treatment" to "cure".

No one but you will take the needed time and effort to research a cure for your medical problems. Be proactive, this is the only body you will ever have... don't leave it care solely up to others.

The Internet has over 20 billion pieces of information from centuries of research. The answers is there, you just have to find it....because no one else will.

I'm also thinking that 100% pure pharmaceutical Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide 30%, diluted 2/3rds with distilled water and applied with DMSO has potential too.

DMSO with "Helichrysum essential oil" has been found to be very effective in healing stubborn skin ulcers from Diabetes. These are the beginnings of losing limbs.

Research is showing that combining DMSO with "Helichrysum essential oil" applied directly to the wound aids in rapid healing. Its even effective on wounds which have rejected all FDA approved prior treatments.

I hope this is helpful.

Re: DMSO for Spinal Cord Injury

I suffered a SCI in August 2012, when driver of car fell asleep at wheel and rolled us. C6/C7 Quad AsiaC Incomplete. I found out about DMSO about 2 months ago. I did extensive research, including finding out the creator Dr Jacob was still alive retired in Oregon and his nurse Rita still works one day a week on Wed for 4 hours. I personally talked to her and told her my situation. She suggested I take liquid form 2x day and gel 2x a day.

I have gel rubbed on my neck above my injury, palms of my hands, and soles of feet. I started taking on 5/14/14. I take half the meds I use to now. Full disclosure, I also been taking Jusuru since 2/21/14 because it has hylauronic acid which I found out helps nerve regeneration. After 10 days of taking 4oz 2x a day, my nerves started burning and activating. Once I added DMSO my nerves are constantly activating and tingling/ burning. Burning is mostly day after I do extensive therapy. My regiment is as follows: MWF therapy, Jusuru/DMSO 2x a day, accupuncture Th/Sat. On 6/2/14 I walked 50ft with my trainer and no equipment help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5SRzEhv3Yo&feature=youtu.be I believe it's a combination of everything I was doing, taking, and staying consistent. No magic pill or formula, just a lot of research, hard work, being consistent, and able to deal with nerve burning regenerating. www.jacoblab.com and www.dmso.org

My cat broke her back 10 weeks ago and hasn't walked since. Her spinal cord was not severed but only had limited use of one back leg. I rubbed DMSO mixed with aloe vera 3 times daily and within 3 days, the leg with no nerve responses started twitching and she started moving it. On the 4th day, she stood up twice. Still not walking but getting more use of both legs and making progress. I don't believe it was coincidence. I started rubbing on peroxide over back today to oxygenate her system and help with regeneration. DMSO is miraculous and FDA should not stop it's use.
