Healing Broken Foot Bones

A reader writes: Do you have a natural means of healing a broken foot, or at least helping the process along? It’s the Sesamoid bone of the left foot.

There are 2 sesamoid bones under the farthest part of the long bone of the foot’s big toe.  When strained or fractured, the sesamoid bones can cause pain in the first joint of the big toe. 
 It is important to realize that bone is live tissue.  It requires time and remodeling to heal.  Because it is hard to protect the fracture of the sesamoid bones with walking or running, it is easy to reinjure the damaged bones every day.  They need time to heal.  
 In addition to rest, the following ideas are useful:

1.  Do not use NSAID anti-inflammatory medications. They retard healing in all joints.

2.Use safer anti-inflammatory supplements like

  • DMSO,
  • Boswelia,
  • capsaicin,
  • and quercetin

3.  Frequencies that accelerate bone repair are found in frequency generators like the FSM machine.

4.  Redox signaling molecules are part of the communication network that facilitates healing.  They can be found in ASEA, which can be taken by mouth, and Renu28 gel, which can be placed directly on the skin around the fracture (Please contact my office at 801-302-5397 if you would like to learn more about this).

5. Try to identify the movement that caused the initial fracture and initiate change to reduce the chance of it happening again.  Changes may include using different shoes, strengthening muscle groups to add support, or releasing tight muscles that put more strain on that part of the foot.

Alternatives to Alleve?

I had an extensive knee operation about 4 months ago following a fall. My doctor has told me to take 2 Alleve pills twice a day to help with the pain. What are your thoughts on this? Is there a better alternative?

Alleve is an anti-inflammatory medication which damages the stomach lining in many people.

I prefer anti-inflammatories that do not cause stomach ache, gastritis and bleeding. These include

  • MSM or its parent compound
  • DMSO,
  • Boswelia,
  • curcumen,
  • quercetin.

A product you will soon be able to obtain through my website supplements, that is marvelous, is Primivia Relief, which contains a compound of Boswelia, curcumin, and quercetin.  It gets tremendous results.

The other thing I would recommend is to get a therapeutic massage therapist to release the muscles around the knee (thigh and calf) that may be pulling on the knee. Your need for anti-inflammatories at four months post surgery may be helped by releasing the muscles that pull on the knee.

There are also frequency generators that have healing frequencies that may help.

Additionally, you might try getting into a spa with powerful jets that may release the muscles and provide healing water to the knee.

Safer Alternatives in Pain Relief

I would like to know natural herbs for cancer (bone) pain. I am looking for relief without side effects. Is it possible?

I am not aware of any herb or natural product with enough analgesic effect to take away bone pain of cancer.  Sometimes even the strongest medications in conventional medicine, like morphine, don’t help enough.

Our major contribution would be in trying to reduce the inflammation caused by the cancer, which is also contributing to the pain.  Try the following and I believe you’ll experience some relief:

  • curcumin,
  • ginger,
  • boswelia,
  • MSM,
  • quercetin.

My prayers are that you’ll be feeling better and that your body will be able to clear itself of the cancer and the pain.  Dr. Stan

Wisdom Teeth and Nerve Damage

I had my wisdom tooth removed at age 40. I am now 48 and have some alveolar nerve damage that seems to get worse all of the time. I was told to go to a facial pain clinic and can’t find one. Also I don’t like to take long term meds for these things, is there anything you could recommend? I went off sugar and that helped a little but it seems to continually be getting more painful all of the time, thank you!!

As you know, the alveolar nerve is a sensory nerve that courses through the cheek to the teeth. I assume the damage took place at the time of surgery, and some kind of sensory change was noticed immediately after surgery.

If you did not notice the damage until days or weeks later, there may not have been direct damage, and your current problem may be related to local swelling or scar tissue around the nerve.

If the removal of sugar helped, it means that inflammation is at least part of the problem. You can help that by avoiding other pro-inflammatory triggers:

  • trans fatty acids,
  • caffeine,
  • aspartame,
  • processed foods.

Try a safe anti-inflammatory like MSM, ginger (or its root), curcumen, Boswelia.

Additionally, there is a frequency generator that I use called a Frequency Specific Microcurrent. It has frequencies to reduce inflammation and heal tissue. It also is miraculous with removal of scar tissue. Other energy work like acupuncture and Jin Shin Jyutsu may also help with healing. I would be quite optimistic of your improvement, since removing sugar helped.

Stenosis: What Are Your Options?

I have severe stenosis in 3 lower back vertebra. I am 77 years old and am still working. For pain I use hydrocodone IB and a lidoderm patch. Could dmso topical or internal be helpful?

As you know, pain management does not solve the underlying problem, but it does permit you to function in life. Stenosis of the vertebra means that the opening in the vertebra that houses the spinal cord is ‘stenotic’, or smaller than it should be. This may cause a stretch or pull on the nerves that leave the spinal cord to the body. Hence the pain.

There may also be inflammation in the area where the nerves leave the spinal cord. This causes swelling and further compression on the nerves, thus causing or contributing to the pain. DMSO is a very effective anti-inflammatory, and penetrates the skin well. In fact, DMSO is put in many skin products as the vehicle to carry the product through the skin. It has been used for years in veterinary medicine, especially for injured race horses.

In large doses, DMSO has a bad smell. This occurs when it is used intravenously. In small local areas, there is usually no problem with the smell, and if it works, it is definitely worth it. Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) is a derivative of DMSO, and is more commonly used because it has no smell. Try 2,000 to 3,000 mg per day as an anti-inflammatory. Other herbal anti-inflammatories include ginger root, Boswelia.

Other ideas that might be helpful—A frequency generator (I use one called an FSM machine-Frequency Specific Microcurrent) has anti-inflammatory frequencies and healing frequencies for all tissue that may also prove useful. Other energy options include Jin Shin Jyutsu, acupuncture, Craniosacral.

Recently I have started teaching a spouse or child or friend that are able to treat the patient with Jin Shin Jyutsu techniques that can be done daily or frequently at home. Certain flows go through the spine, and as bone is replaced, if the healing energy is plentiful, there could be new vertebra formed without the stenosis. This would take years, but would be worth it.
