I have gone everywhere for help with severe back and hip pain.
Q. Dear Terry, “I have gone everywhere for help with severe back and hip pain. My latest x-rays show my spine is crooked, with bone spurs up and down it. I get no relief from the pain medications I have been prescribed. In fact, my doctor says the pain may never be relieved. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.” — Deborah B., Columbia, SC
A. Dear Deborah, I believe I can offer you some alternative nutritional options. However, I encourage you to discuss the use of dietary supplementation with your physician, as they may have additional input regarding a supplement regimen.
I would first recommend trying a combination of high-absorption curcumin with boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address the pain you are experiencing. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking 1-2 capsules of this blend three times a day.
I would also recommend using a different multi-ingredient combination of highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, along with vitamin D and fructoborate. This quartet of ingredients helps to reduce joint pain and stiffness, as well as rebuild joint structure. I recommend taking one capsule of this blend three times daily.
To specifically address the bone spurs, I recommend adding a combination of calcium and magnesium, 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 concerns are cleared up, I think going to a maintenance dosage of 1 or 2 per day is sufficient. When choosing a product, 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 forms are important in maintaining optimal calcium absorption and healthy acid/alkaline balance.
