What is the quickest way to get rid of tennis elbow?
Dear Terry, “What is the quickest way to get rid of tennis elbow?” — Twila P., Pittsburgh, PA
Dear Twila, The term "tennis elbow" refers to a condition caused by overuse of arm, forearm, and hand muscles that results in elbow pain. It specifically involves the area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attach to the outside bony area (called the lateral epicondyle) of the elbow.
I would first recommend a combination of highly absorbable curcumin, along with boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address any pain you may be 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 daily.
Then you should consider adding a strong, absorbable curcumin to your daily regimen. I recommend taking 1 softgel (750 mg) of high absorption curcumin twice daily. Curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, is a potent antioxidant and powerful anti-inflammatory that works via multiple pathways.
Keep in mind that standard curcumin is very poorly absorbed, so make sure the products you choose feature a curcumin with excellent absorption that has been proven in published human studies. The best form I have ever found uses curcumin blended with turmeric essential oils in a patented process. This curcumin has been shown in published studies to be up to 10 times better absorbed than standard curcumin.
To further assist in the repair process, I prefer a multi-ingredient formula specific to connective tissue. It should include the active forms of vitamins B6 and B12, 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 1 capsule of this blend three times daily.
