Degenerative Disc Disease
« on: December 10, 2008, 08:29:41 AM »
My 48yo aunt was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease years ago. She has had 5 or 6 back/neck surgeries in the last 15 years, and continues to have trouble with her back. There are other discs that need attention, according to the dr., but he is very hesitant to do more surgery, as he says the next one will most likely leave her disabled.

She is very amazing - a study in perseverance! She is in constant pain, but she continues to work a full-time job and maintain a very normal lifestyle, which includes caring for her 89yo father (who is in pretty good shape for an 89yo!).

All of this to say, I want to make a tincture or some "concoction"  :D  that could help to improve her back health. Or at least maintain it so it does not continue to worsen. Does anyone have any suggestions or know of anything that helps this condition??

TIA!

I too have this and I was healed with Physical Therapy, traction and fatty acids.  I don't have time to post alot right now, but read this first and if you have more questions, I'll try to get to them tomorrow.

My dh went and had an MRI last week for his back.  I finally got the nurse to tell me what the diagnosis said, the doctor won't be back in until Monday.  She said there was degeneration and some discs were "misplaced".  I just got a bottle of DMSO, other than that is there any more info about Degenerative Disc Disease?  i've read some on the internet.  I'm not sure what is wrong with the misplaced disc, either herniated, or slipped, or what.

Thanks
Wendy
