I have bone spurs and I’m hoping there is something I can do to heal them naturally.
Q. Dear Terry, “I have bone spurs and I’m hoping there is something I can do to heal them naturally. What do you suggest?” — Beverly U., Jacksonville, FL
A. Dear Beverly, Bone spurs are formed when “dead calcium” builds up in certain areas of the body. Bone spurs can happen to anyone, and it’s estimated that 1 in 10 people in the United States have heel spurs.
Regardless of the cause of your bone spur, I believe the following ingredients will help.
I recommend 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 would take 200 mg of vitamin C, 20 mg of vitamin B6 (in its bioactive form as pyridoxal-5-phosphate), 220 mg of calcium (as calcium chloride and calcium phosphate), 50 mg of magnesium (as magnesium glycerophosphate), 400 mg of ammonium chloride and 400 mg of betaine HCl, with each meal and right before bed.
It’s important to take these ingredients 4 times per day to really help the body clean away those unwanted calcium deposits on the bone (aka bone spurs).
Once the bone spur is resolved you may want to stay with these ingredients once per day for maintenance.
