I have been dealing with ankle pain and have been told that I have bone spurs on my ankle joint.
Q. Dear Terry, “I have been dealing with quite a bit of ankle pain recently and have been told that I have bone spurs at the front of my ankle joint. I am only 25 and trying to avoid having surgery at all costs. Do you have any suggestions?” — Tim O., Mobile, AL
A. Dear Tim, I would recommend trying a combination of high-absorption curcumin with boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address any pain you may be currently experiencing. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to help you get comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking 1-2 capsules of this blend three times a day.
When it comes to the bone spurs themselves, I recommend adding a combination that includes specific forms of calcium (calcium phosphate and calcium chloride) and magnesium (magnesium glycerophosphate), along with bioavailable B6, betaine HCl, vitamin C, and ammonium chloride. These ingredients help keep calcium more fluid to make sure it doesn’t form clumps that later become bone spurs. In short, they help ensure that calcium is where it should be, dissolves it where it shouldn’t be, and prevents it from building up there again. I recommend taking 2 capsules of this blend with each meal, followed by 2 capsules at bedtime. However, once your immediate health concerns are cleared up, I think going to a maintenance dosage of 1 or 2 per day is sufficient. When choosing a product, you must make sure to look for one that contains calcium in the form of calcium phosphate and calcium chloride, as well as magnesium in the form of magnesium glycerophosphate, as these are the forms that help the body clean away those unwanted calcium deposits on bone (aka bone spurs).
