Arthroscopy literally means “look inside”. At one time, about they only “medical” procedure they could perform (I use the term loosely) was a menisectomy (removal of knee cartilage). (What they didn’t tell you at the time is that cartilage doesn’t grow back!) Having been victimized by that very procedure, I do my very best to excoriate it, in this article.
Prolotherapy causes your body to heal. It is particularly helpful for tendons and ligaments. Alas, it is not as helpful as I had hoped for restoring major amounts of cartilage inside the joints. But it is a protocol that in many cases should tried before submitting to the surgeries that
modern medicine is so proud of.
A Survey of Nutritional Literature
Multiple sclerosis has nutritional causes and nutritional cures.
There are ways to heal the knees. In 2007, my keys were weight training, prolotherapy, and a chiropractic maneuver known as traction.
It is possible to treat many skin conditions and digestive disorders with the same, simple remedy. But trust me when I say that you probably are not going to like it — at least, not at first. Because the potential healing benefit comes from — get this — the practice practice of “Urine Therapy”. (Other recommendations include a good skin cream, and diet rich in phytochemicals (aka polyphenols). But here, we deal with the really weird one.
A Program for the Repair and Regeneration of the Intestinal Tract, after the Ravages of Gluten Intolerance
Intestinal healing is particularly recommended for those whose intestines have been ravaged by gluten intolerance, as described in What’s Wrong with Wheat? But it can also be of benefit to anyone who wants robust health, by making the major organs of assimilation and elimination as efficient as possible.
High blood pressure comes from a diet that is long on bad fats and short on nutrients. The doctor’s advice to reduce to salt works to a degree, but not for the reasons you think, and it doesn’t address the real problem.
Proper skeletal alignment can eliminate pain and promote healing, but it doesn’t have to be achieved with sudden, wrenching movements. “Gentle chiropractic” maneuvers can achieve the same goals, and educate the patient in the process.
Nutritional approaches have worked to reverse diabetes. When the body is viewed as a system, and it’s inputs, outputs, and processes are examined, the mystery disappears.
When it comes to internal medicine, I’m a big fan of nutritional remedies, rather than drugs. When it comes to external injuries, I have become a huge fan of Chinese Sports Medicine. [Caveat: This modality was not effective when I injured my shoulder. In fact, I wound up with a frozen shoulder that took an orthopedic specialist to cure. So for joint damage, steer clear. But for soft tissue damage, come a runnin’.]
