Bone Spurs

Bone Spurs

bone spurs - Judy -
What causes bone spurs? My 82 year old mother has them in her legs. She also has no cartilage in her knees and is looking to knee replacement as she is in a lot of pain when she walks. Is there anything that can be done to help her, other than surgery?

Re:bone spurs - Timothy Long - [timothylong@longnaturalhealth.com]
Someone like your grandmother who has bone spurs and degenerative joint problems may need to raise their intake of calcium and other bone building nutrients. It would also be important to be sure their stomach can breakdown and assimilate these nutrients. Low stomach acid is often a problem. If so, plant enzymes as found in Therazymes are the right thing to take, not hydrochloric acid digestive pills. Low vitamin D can also be a problem. Calcium that cannot be utilized well, as well as degenerating bones can cause bone spurs or calcium buildup in the soft tissues of the body. This can be seen as tarter on the teeth, gall, liver and kidney stones, etc. Magnesium is often needed. Making sure the pH of the body is correct is also important. BioNativus Liquid Calcium Magnesium will provide a balance of minerals that build bone and will help correct acid pH. I no longer like Coral Calcium. It do not like destroying the coral reefs and it is mostly calcium carbonate. BioNativus has superior forms of calcium. Every individual case may have different needs. Taking only calcium can add to the problem. A very good place to start is by doing the 24HR Urinalysis that can be purchased on this website. I am available to counsel over the phone. Everyone is welcome to email me at timothylong@longnaturalhealth.com

Re:bone spurs - Lucindarae - [lucindarae@hotmail.com]
Hello, I had bone spurs in the heels of both feet and tried ultrasound,cortizone,and surgery on one foot only. The spur was a result in a injury because I tore the fasha in the bottom of my foot and my body was trying to heel it. My body felt for pain when I increased calcium and found out through research that I needed to increase my intake of Magnesium as my body couldn't simulate the calcium properly and these two important minerals work together to balance. My system wasn't in balance. It took several years to get to the point were I could stand for a number of hours but am pain free now. AW, the wonders of Magnesium! Hang in there and good luck.

Re:bone spurs - Laura - Oklahoma [ToyotaOkieC@yahoo.com]
I had a heel pain for more than 20 years. It had gotten much worse recently. I believe it is (or was) a heel spur. In January I changed from 2% milk to whole milk. One month later, the pain was noticably lessened. Now, I can't make the heel hurt. I learned that if you don't have adequate natural vitamins A and D, you can't make use of your calcium. Simply switching to whole milk made the difference for me. I thought I would gain weight, but I lost because I wasn't hungry all the time.

I have spurs on both knees and they are very painful especially when I go to bed or when I sit down to rest. I tried excercise and it just made them worse.

I get very little sleep and would like to know what I can do. I am 69 years old. I need help Audrey

Re:bone spurs - Brandie - Hastings, OK [bmycah@yahoo.com]
My husband has suffered with knee pain until recently. We discovered coral calcium!!! It has been the best thing in our lives since. My husband did not like to take prescriptions and had a surgery to repair his knee only to have pain that the doctors said would always be there. Wrong!!!!!! Coral calcium relieved his pain in 5 days. Please, please give it a try, it just might work.If you have any questions feel free to email me, I'll help as much as I can.

Re:bone spurs - dan - Vancouver
some say calcium, some magnesium. Try one, then the other, then both, a few months each, and see what happens. Get vitamins A and D, as well, because calcium needs these for proper use. Some dietary fat and organic acidic foods (buttermilk, sauerkraut, etc.) help assimilation. Magnesium, in proper balance, might flush out excess calcium that might be deposited on spurs. coral calcium is irrelevant without necessary co-factors. Those having success with it may be getting those factors with the rest of their diet.

Re:bone spurs - - [igloo@pacific.net.au]
Everybody! Listen to me please! My wife is diagnosed with a bone spur in the heel what causes her a terrible pain. What I would passionately recommend you is a simple remedy- before every meal take two teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar diluted in a cup of water with little raw honey. Take that on a regular basis. Do not expect the results before 2-3 months. You'll notice many positive side effects(incl.improved sleeping , better and more frequent bowel movements, brighter appearence). The ACV has a proven quality to dilute and expell the acidic crystals built-up in the tissues and joints. Be persistent, stick to that and we will enjoy the victory! Les Brisbane, Australia

Re:bone spurs - Catherine - South Pasadena [dprakriti@hotmail.com]
I recently was told I have a big bone spur at the base of my spine. I feel the pain in my groin(not my back). It is a very severe stabbing pain. The doctors thought I had a hernia, then they thought I had a tore muscle, etc. until I insisted on xrays which showed a bone spur and bone loss in my hips - I have been a vegetarian most of my life and fairly active. I am menopausal 47 years old. I do not have insurance and wonder if there is a non surgery approach to take since I don't have money for surgery. I have used holistic medecine since my 20s. I heard about EZorb? Is this a good thing to take and what do you think of the Bone-Up formula. I have been afraid to take calcium supplements because I am afraid of getting stones. I had a bone density test that was dramatically different from 2 years ago which was very good. My doctor says I have osteopenia and recommends the calcium. SHe says it can be reversed? ALso, my doctor thinks my new thyroid medication(I have been taking levoxyl for one year) may be a culprit. I read also studies of synthroid show some women have 19% loss with long term use . My thyroid tests are now normal. Is it necessary to keep taking 100 mcg once a day to maintain? I have lost almost 20 pounds just taking the medication and worry I am getting too much and maybe that is contributing to the bone loss. My doctor is always amazed that i read so much articles and try to understand... says he needs to remind me that he is the doctor! But I am wondering what I can do for my part.

Re:bone spurs - Valerie S. Brown - New York, NY [veebee2752@aol.com]
I have heel spurs in both heels and I am a waitress so this is a real problem. I just got today a pair of shoes called mBT rockers. by Swiss Masai. That back heel is cut off at an angle so as to have you rock forward off the heel, as in walking in sand on an uneven surface, as the women in eastern Africa Masai where they carry baskets on their head. They have great posture and do not walk on their heels as Americans do, like a cowboy with hard pressure on their heels.I got them at the Eneslow store in New York www.eneslow.com or info@eneslow.com 924 Broadway @ 21st. Broadway (212) 477-2300 (800)ENESLOW (outside NYC) Fax (212) 477-2156 or Little Neck, NY (718) 357-5800 Fax (718)357-0531 and the shoe comany Masai Barefoot Technology Swiss Masai U.S. LLC, Hailey, + 1 208 788 0883 United States and Canada or www.swissmasai.com. These shoes are great also for diabetics who do not have their toes since the balance is forward. You have to get use to the shoes because your gait will change your posture and spine alignment and work muscles you have not visted in a long time. There is a brochure and a CD to help with getting use to the shoes. I just got them today and am hopeful. I will start with the apple cider vinegar and raw honey because that seems to help a lot of my problems. I will get a BDT and start with more coral calicum and my present calicum/mag. intake. The shoes have a lot of different styles and sandals. This shoe store will also custom any shoes you have now with a doctor's prescription, by cutting open the bottom of your shoes and put in the rock sole between you shoe and the present bottom. Enjoy!!Thank You for all of your input.

I am 37 years old and have been suffering on and off with terrible pain in my right foot. The pain is located under my toes on the ball of my foot, and has recently started to affect the toe next to my big toe. Could this be a bone spur? This has been going on for about 4 months off and on. It will hurt for serveral days to weeks, and then stop. I am on my feet alot so I thought that it was the insides of my shoes or the shoes themselves. I bought new shoes and also tried insoles in my old shoes. All that did was make the pain worse.Could you please let me know what the sympthoms of bone spurs are and what I can do if I do have one. I know I have bone spurs in my neck. I don't know how long I have had them. I recently found out as a result of being in a car accident. What can I do for them?

I have a spur on my right heal. It has been hurting about a year. I have tried the cortizone shots. I am 52 years old and I know I need to lose weight. I take the magnesium pills, and calcium.

Re:bone spurs - Caroline M. - Reading, PA [nospam@nospam.com]
Those in severe pain, give some seaweed pills a try and see if it helps. (I can't stand the taste of seaweed, but you could also try eating it). If I take 3 capsules of Sea Vegg, my heel spur pain is relieved for 12-24 hours. If it begins to hurt, I take 3 more seaweed capsules. It works better than Advil, Tylenol, etc. I'm not sure why it works, but it does!

Re:bone spurs - Brenda Virtue - Airdrie, Alberta, Canada [brendavee@hotmail.com]
I have bone spurs on both knees and on the bottom of my feet and both heels. I resolved most of the pain in my feet by wearing shoes with good arch support and by having orthotics made by a podiatrist. But now I am dealing with spurs in my knees and it is extemely painful. I do have arthritis in my knees and have been taking anti inflammatory meds. I am going for cortizone injections this week which will alleviate the pain for the short term. I am looking into surgery that is done with a lazer and requires very little recouperation time. A colleague of mine had the procedure before xmas and was back to work within a week and experienced no pain after coming out of surgery. She has been able to cut back most of the meds she was on. I take calcium and magnesium daily and glucosamine with chrondroitin. They help the arthritis but not the spurs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The site will be monitored on a daily basis, so input with improper wording or innuendo will either be edited (I reserve the right to do so, but ONLY for improper specific words – not, in any way to change a meaning; basically I want this site to remain a serious discussion forum and CLEAN). Obviously I cannot tolerate and will delete/modify, but also cannot not take responsibility for improper communication or meetings between members of the forum, etc. Did you break a bone or fracture a spine? – how did you do during recovery? Was your recovery normal, fast, slow, or miserably very, very slow (or non-existent). What medications were you taking (no matter how well you recovered)? Where you (especially) taking a Cox-2 inhibitor (such as Vioxx, Celebrex, etc.) or a Cox-1 inhibitor? How about a biophosphate such as FOSAMAX? – and which were taken at the same time? Was the healing very slow and the recovery miserable? What other prescription medications (or natural remedies) might you have had? Or maybe you had recovery problems and there is (are) indication(s) that it was a different medication inhibiting your recovery? Lastly, perhaps you were taking any of the above WHILE recuperating and you did great? Again, what was the medication and details of your successful and timely recovery? I would like to hear both sides. Actual, real life details and history are best. Speculation by some-one who does not have a genuine interest in this is not useful and will be discounted. I am not a physician, and all of the following is not medical advice. Furthermore, information relative to Merck and its actions are currently alleged, not generally nor finally proven. Information on any other companies, directly or by reference is not meant to be an allegation of any kind, but a way to communicate and help one understand the “whole picture”. While the drugs within their categories (Cox-1 or Cox-2 inhibitor) are very similar in many ways, the NSAIDS (either Cox-1 or Cox-2 inhibitors) are also all different – even if minor, and it cannot be casually predicted that since one impacts a certain way, the other one(s) will also. However, if you or some-one you know has a fractured bone and/or spine, in the past or now, that is SLOW in healing or NOT HEALING, and you take (or took) a Cox-2 inhibitor (Vioxx, Celebrex. etc. also known as specific NSAIDS) you should REALLY, really visit my BLOG - badbonehealing.wordpress.com. The same goes for the more common (now a days - as once was, since the removal of some Cox-2 inhibitors such as Vioxx) NSAIDS, termed Cox-1 inhibitors (such as Naproxen, Feldlene, Voltaren, etc. which are termed non-specific NSAIDS) . However, the alleged issues do not appear to be as significant as with Vioxx, Celebrex (etc. newer Cox-2 inhitors that are (and might be) easier on the stomach. I guess it can also simply come down to this - and in shorter wording. if you are recovering from a broken bone, fractured spine, etc. and whether you are doing well or having delayed healing, if you could let me know (via BLOG or email) about the recovery history AND what medications you are taking, – it would be very useful (my goals are below). I am trying to work the statute of limitations, on a National basis. Obviously, that is a major goal and difficult achievement. I am not a lawyer, and cannot represent anyone legally by any means – I am just hoping that an injunction can be ordered, or whatever it takes to get the statute extended another 6 months, so others can place their lawsuits. Obviously, I would only encourage serious lawsuits that you have great faith in, not something so obviously marginal and that did not impact you. Without some help, I will probably not succeed. If I get enough input I probably can if legally possible. Also, with enough input, quite possibly another approach, that of formal and real reasons for not meeting the date may allow individual extensions (that would seem to have a reasonable chance - but only if I get input). You will (or may) be shocked at what you read (i.e. the Vioxx bone inhibiting information and my alleged complaints against Merck) and my sad tale of spine/bone “recovery” which, allegedly, was dramatically and negatively impacted by a Cox-2 inhibitor (Vioxx).

Re:bone spurs - Dennis Harrison - Cementon, NY, USA [dharrison6@hvc.rr.com]
VIOXX – (allegedly) more than breaking hearts… Merck may need to look behind its shoulder… a lawsuit filed may be the FIRST lawsuit of its kind – alleging that Vioxx inhibits, delays, and even PREVENTS bone/spine healing. Allegedly Merck ignored warnings and it should have been suspicious regardless. The statute of limitations is (mostly) ending. Several thousand likely don’t have a clue… Also, another Cox-2 inhibitor (Celebrex) still exists! Current users must become aware of this alleged (Cox-2 inhibitor) issue(s). Also, one cannot help but wonder about concurrent use of Cox-2 inhibitors and bio-phosphates (like Fosamax) in the past/current. BOTH interfere, with the natural healing (Vioxx) or regeneration (Fosamax) process. Fosamax lawsuits are accelerating.

Re:bone spurs - Deb - Ohio [AFMomDeb@aol.com]
A few years ago I was to an orthopedic surgeon and was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis - heal spurs. He sent me to a physical therapist. The physical therapy did not seem to effect the serious pain I was in. The physical therapist did suggest a night time sleeping splint. I had the pain in both feet, but one was much worse. I was skeptical to think this night time device would be of help. What it does is hold the foot in a slightly pulled back position. After you look at these night splints you might think, ohhh that is nuts I could never sleep with that on... well.... the pain was so great I was willing to give this a try. Within a few months the pain was totally GONE. I was thrilled to have a non-surgical way to take care of this problem. I would not just suggest one go out and order the splint. See your doctor and make sure just what your problem is, then ask them about the splint. If it's suggested through your doctor, it might be covered by medical insurance.

Re:bone spurs - Aimee - Washington State [sunnymilanna@yahoo.com]
Wow! I am surprised that so many persons are suffering from very painful bone spurs! I have two bone spurs in one of my fingers and my hand surgeon wants to remove them. I really don't want to have surgery, so, I did a bit of research and found that Dr. John Christopher's BF and C (Bone, Flesh and Cartilage) product can remove bone spurs. Persons who use it take it orally and also make a tea from the capsules and soak a washcloth in it and lay it over (or around the finger, or?) the finger for an hour 2-3 times a day...there are persons who said that BF and C really does work. I am going to buy some and try it and I am going to add to it the recommendations here by Timothy Long. I am also wondering if magnets (using only the bioNorth side against the skin) will remove bone spurs? Anyone know?

Re:bone spurs - Doug Couch - Lancaster CA [couchdouglas@aol.com]
My wife recently had her known foot bone spurs become problematic, and am reviewing this thread for additional answers (we have not tried anything other than brief medical and chiro so far). In my own experience: Around the early 80's, I had severe pain in my elbow when making the mistake of fully extending my arm. Doctor said it was tennis elbow (based on my then age of 30) and did nothing for it. This continued for about five months, when I decided to try using a strong magnet on it (pole used unknown) after ordering one. I used this for about 10 minutes and hesitantly tried my elbow. Much to my surprise, the pain was absent, and has been absent for the last 31 years. Most likely a tiny, but painful, bone spur was involved. I imagine with perserverance, one could help a bone spur with magnets which are strong enough...but I also imagine in most cases it would take awhile. Consider using visualization also (used in conjunction with the magnet in my case), as more and more of the medical community are recognizing that using the mind to affect the body is a valid mechanism and not only a psychological effect. For visualization, simply visualize the spur and tissue around it, and the blood vessels serving that tissue...then visualize the blood dissolving and transporting the problematic calcium spurs bit by bit away from the tissue and spur, and absorbing or ridding the body of the them. Sounds hokey, yes, but hokey does work at times. For the pain issue, you might try visiting emofree.com. We have purchased their very interesting CD series and utilized the technique for various pain. They use tapping energy meridians in conjunction with affirmations very very successfully. My wife is diabetic with peripheral neuropathy, and the neuropathy causes her tendons to tighten, pulling away tiny bits of bone, causing the bone spurs. It may or may not be possible to remedy this, but we intend to try whatever others find useful, as the doctor says she may lose her foot...and I think that is not the best "remedy." The recent exacerbation came from aqua aerobics class (bouncing off the bottom of the pool portion) at a fitness center. We get older and wiser, but not necessarily smarter. Just getting started! Good luck to all.

So many desperate people here in pain. Please do try Ezorb. You can find it on the internet. After two years of suffering from heal spurs, tennis elbow (both arms), shoulder bursitis,chronic back pain, popping aching knees, just everything hurt-- I came across Ezorb on line. I was really skeptical because I' spent so much time and money searching for relief-- all sorts of creams, supplements, herbs, magnets, heel inserts, exercise programs,and pills. Just nothing was of significant relief. Then this winter, I launched myself off my porch stairs on a patch of ice. I dislocated my shoulder and cracked my hip. I'm 58--not good. I wanted my life back! Every day was a challenge of pain and exhaustion; every night's sleep broken by pain. I could not keep living on desperation and Advil. Anyway, I tried the Ezorb on a lark, figuring if it didn't work, it couldn't hurt, and I'd get my money back. WHAT I DID NOT EXPECT WAS MY LIFE BACK. It works!It really works! Not suddenly, but gradually. I was just walking up some stairs and noticed, "Hey, this wasn't so hard today! I can sleep on my side again! And then just sleeping! Everyday seems better with my whole body feeling both liquid in motion and solid too at the same time. This is on the level of a miracle to me. I am taking the double dose powder in oj. I've only been using the stuff about four months and the relief is profound. Nothing else I have tried touches these results. Apparently, many others have had great results. Check the web page. I know it seems somewhat expensive, but one dollar a day! You could blow more than that on a cup of coffee or a quart of gasoline (Ha Ha!). The list of conditions that this light-weight calcium helps is impressive. Hard to believe that bone and joint metabolism effect so many functions and are related to so many chronically debilitating conditions. I'm sitting here rejoicing and writing this, thanking God for being without pain again. My body feels unified and whole--as it did when I was younger--much younger! Please, all the suffering people here, try the Ezorb for a couple of months. If I can get it, I will use it for the rest of my life.
