I have tendonitis in my Achilles tendon.

Q. Dear Terry, “I have tendonitis in my Achilles tendon. I’ve been a runner almost my whole life, so it’s really hard to not be as active as I want. I went to my doctor and the best option they had was steroid injections. I want to help heal this injury naturally and hopefully for good. What can I try? ” – Ivette M., Chicago, IL

A. Dear Ivette, I do have some options that I believe will make a significant difference. However, I would also encourage you to consult with a healthcare practitioner that specializes in sports medicine and/or a certified fitness professional who can determine if incorrect body mechanics during exercise may be contributing to your tendinitis.

When it comes to addressing your pain, I would recommend these four ingredients: curcumin with turmeric essential oil, boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to help get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking these four ingredients three times daily.

I believe a combination of nutrients is best for further assisting in the repair process. I prefer active forms of vitamins B6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate) and B12 (methylcobalamin), along with magnesium, manganese, bromelain, zinc, vitamin C, niacinamide, and boswellia. One of the most crucial ingredients is manganese. You need at least 36 mg of manganese to have an impact, so make sure the dosing of this critical mineral is adequate. I recommend taking these ingredients two or three times daily.

Healthy Regards!
