Bone Spurs are painful, and are caused by a lack of calcium in the body, and Metabolic Acidosis from diet and stress, etc. The body starts to borrow from the calcium bank of bones and teeth. The protrusions from bone can press on nerves, etc., causing extreme discomfort and pain, like sciatica, etc. Here is a short story of one natural solution.
For other personal accounts of bone spurs, degenerative discs and arthritis, feel free to email me. You will probably find yourself in the collected stories, and know that there are solutions that don't include cortisone shots, etc. Cortisone and steroids cause cartilage disintegration, and other health problems, including unnecessary hip replacements down the road. Instead of treating the symptom, let's look at the cause and balance the blood chemistry.
My mother-in-law has (had) bone spurs on her spine along with
arthritis, diabetes, and degenerative disks. She was in extreme pain and went to many specialists. She received cortisone shots which helped temporarily, but the pain would always return. She was using a walker and was headed for a wheelchair. When the doctors told her that there was nothing else they could do for her, she FINALLY took my advice of 9 cal mag a day (3 -3 times a day) and with in a couple of weeks her pain was completely
Thanks to the cal mag, she has increased her bone density. I know this because, on several occasions, she has lost her balance and fallen in the kitchen on the ceramic floor. She never had any breaks or any bruises. She is 76.
Hope this helps

Click the title and links above to purchase Osteomatrix, which is Shaklee's calcium. They have a chewable CalMag also, without the Vitamin K, for those on Coumadin blood thinner.
I suggest the Basics: Vita Lea multivitamin/mineral, Soy Protein, Optiflora (probiotic to bring colon health and build the immune system) Osteomatrix or CalMag, and Vitamin C for help to absorb the Calcium and fight colds and flu. Alfalfa is also VERY HELPFUL in building bone and reducing arthritis pain, etc.. Alfalfa has microminerals to build healthy bones.

First, a personal note and items of business: This is the color scheme I have played with this summer, and will finish in the spring, when the paint won't bubble with the Autumn moisture here in the 'Pocket in the Woods'. This photo reminds me of my Blueberry box still waiting to be constructed, the Birdhouses that I'm going to seal so they'll last longer, and other Autumn tasks that wonder where I have been.
Last night I went to dinner for my 55th birthday, had halibut at Stanford's, and saw Julie/Julia which I loved. Don't be surprised if I share more of the recipes I try, and maybe sneak in a few poems or other projects amid the health and nutrition pieces.
I recently listened to Dr. Sandra Bevacqua, who is a Molecular and Cellular Microbiologist, a tumor researcher, and has a business helping people overcome cancer. She told of a woman who came to her with breast cancer, that had metasticized into her brain, lung and pelvis who was given 3 months to live. Dr. Bevacqua started this woman on nutrients from Shaklee, and 6 months later, her cancer had not grown, and she was still on the planet. It was not until she began using Citriboost which has the pre and probiotic in it (must refrigerate after opening) and the Optiflora pearl which is the probiotic (no refrigeration needed, as it's triple encapsulated) that the cancer began to disappear.
It seems the immune system prioritizes the digestive area, and needs the flora to become rebalanced so it can focus on other areas of the body. Every tumor receded and left except for one small spot in the pelvis. This story does not end well. The woman had 'friends' that convinced her she did not need Shaklee products, saying they were too expensive, etc., and she quit taking them. This woman also resumed eating her simple carb diet with sugars. The cancer returned, and she died.
What Dr. Bevacqua found was the Citriboost swished and gargled, and swallowed in the oral cavity, helped the head, mouth, throat, esophagus, down to the stomach, building the integrity of the mucusal tissue, while the Optiflora repopulated and balanced the flora in the colon, as it gets past the hydrochloric acid of the stomach. Dr. B said this Citriboost/Optiflora combo was wonderful for Candida symptoms of vertigo, thrush, itching or ringing ears, sinusitis and sore throats, and even was helpful for hiatal hernias, while the Optiflora built the immune system from the stomach down into the colon.
Current research is showing Candida is allowed to survive, or is protected or covered by heavy metals, making it difficult to get rid of it. Candida can evolve into the fungal form and travel almost anywhere in the body. It causes a host of problems, including depression and spacy thinking, and can interfere with the immune system, promoting cancer.
I listened to an RN who has a business of testing blood and urine for heavy metals concur with this. She said one source of poisoning was: many mattresses need to be covered or encapsulated to prevent gases and flame retardent chemicals that produce heavy metal poisoning from being absorbed into the skin and lungs, etc. Pre and post-testing have absolutely proven these problems and the solutions. Chelating or removal of heavy metals is an important step of treating Candida overgrowth, and this woman used Shaklee's Vitamin C-at least 4 a day, 2 in the AM, and 2 at night, Alfalfa which is full of microminerals and is called the Broom of the Colon, Herb Lax to remove toxins from the intestinal tract and body, and DTX to cleanse the liver.
Anyone interested in the Health talk from Sandra Bevacqua or the Registered Nurse with the blood testing/heavy metal poisoning removal business and information are welcome to contact me, and I will send you the links and passwords so you can listen or order the tapes.
You can also request my FREE Health Questionnaire that shows by symptom what a person is deficient in. A blood panel at your physician (hopefully you have a Naturopath you can trust) can also show these nutrient deficiencies. Without adequate vitamins, minerals, protein and essential fatty acids, your body cannot function well, and can break down with disease and illnesses. The immune system is made from about 90% protein.
I recommend Shaklee's Energizing soy protein, in plain, vanilla or cocoa, as it is a clean plant protein, is in consistent amounts, has been cold-water washed, with the harmful thyroid substance removed, not processed in aluminum vats to create toxins, or spray dried and heated to severe temperatures nor alcohol-washed, and never gets above room temperature. Shaklee also adds 50% calcium to their soy protein, as it is otherwise an acidic substance after processing. Soy milk is not high in Isoflavones.
Dr. B eats up to 100 grams of protein a day, half of which is soy. She corrected her LDL/HDL ratios from the 1-42? ratios to the norm of 1-2.4 to 1-4 in 2 weeks. Her Cardiologist told her she would have a fatal heart attack within the year, before turning 40 years old, with her 1-42 Cholesterol ratios, and her family history of heart attacks at that age. She had normal blood work in about 2 weeks with Shaklee's soy protein. That is what made her pay attention to Shaklee as a scientifically-sound 50+ year company with integrity, testing all their products for contaminants, and she fully recommends their products. No other products had helped her. Her cardiologist attributed God as bringing her LDL/HDL ratios into line, but her General Practice Doctor now refers her own patients to Dr. Sandra Bevacqua for health help with nutrition. Dr. B educates doctors and health professionals on nutrition all over the world.

What Do Sinus Infections, Itchy Ears, Vertigo, Urinary Tract and Yeast Infections and Prostatitis Have in Common?
Ever feel like this dog looks?
Sinus infections, itchy ears, dry scalp and skin rashes, vertigo, urinary tract and yeast infections, prostatitis, thrush and skin fungal infections all signal an overgrowth of Candida. We all have this bacterium or yeast, that can develop into the fungal form, send its roots through our intestinal walls, and leak molecules of our food into the body cavity, setting up many allergies. We have health issues like the above mentioned ones, when Candida becomes overly abundant, or imbalanced in our bodies.
So, what keeps this Candida in balance with our good flora, and what feeds this fungus? Remember, Dr. Mercola interviewed the Italian Oncologist who says cancer is white, or fungal based. The more we tip towards acid, the closer to disease and death we become. We cannot feed ourselves sugar, coffee, soda, processed food, simple carbs like balloon bread and pasta, and dairy and meat with hormones and antibiotics- without having it affect our ph balance and health. The European Union won't import our beef, because of the half dozen or more hormones and antibiotics American growers add to their herds. Make bread, and watch the yeast grow exponentially with the sugar or honey that you put in the water or bread mixture. The growth of the yeast makes the bread rise. Sugar and carbs feed yeast, fungus and cancer. Cancer cells have many times the insulin receptors of normal cells.
I had a pelvic oncologist who bragged to me that he didn't listen to the hour nutritional training while in medical school. He handed out Twinkies to his cancer patients. He is now dead of his own oral cancer.
One of the reasons I use and promote Vita Lea multi-vitamin/mineral is it's natural and breaks down quickly to be used by the body. It also is coated in folic acid, and has 100% biotin. Biotin keeps Candida from developing into the fungal form, and helps to manage it. It also has 45% calcium, which besides being good to build our bones and teeth, is an alkalinizer. Countries with the most centenarians, (living to 100) have water supplies rich in calcium. Remember, fungus and yeast love acidic environments.
I just listened to a presentation on the Power of Soy, and the difference of Shaklee's cold water-washed soy by Dr. Sandra Bevacqua. In this educational CD, she related how cancer patients who are on a nutritional program suddenly made great healing progress with an added probiotic. Those with itchy ears, white tongues and throats, and sinus infections, etc. can benefit from a Shaklee product called Citriboost for the mucosal membrane of mouth, throat and esophagus, and the Optiflora probiotic pearl that gets into the colon. It was recommended in the past to just suck on an Optiflora pearl, biting it open, and letting it bathe the mouth and throat. Citriboost can be added to a little orange juice, water, etc. and gargled and swished, before being swallowed, and can make a huge difference in managing Candida from the head and oral cavities to the stomach, while Optiflora probiotic can manage balancing the flora, feeding the colon lactobacillus and bifidus. Products that have many kinds of bacteria, are often for marketing purposes only, and not scientifically confirmed, like Shaklee takes the time to do, and writes its scientific peer-reviewed published studies on.
Optiflora probiotic changed my health. The indigestion, gas and general malaise are gone. We have about 5 pounds of flora in our 'gut' that often is overwhelmed with the bad flora. The colon can get covered in placque also, and not absorb what nutrients we are taking in. Supplementation is essential for optimal health, as is a Gentle Colon Cleanse once or twice a year. I use Herb Lax and Fiber Plan to keep the pipes clean, remove toxins and cholesterol, and kill parasites with the herbs in Herb Lax. Diet and exercise in sunshine also help. Oxygenating exercise and Vitamin D and a good diet are important to maintain optimal health.
There's a urine/toxic test for around $100 to test for heavy metal toxicity: Candida is a symptom says Dr. Sandra Bevacqua of heavy metal poisoning. She has found that people with Candida usually have heavy metal toxicity. If they can test for that and use IV or oral chelation (oral is less expensive but takes longer to get rid of it. Approx. $20-50 depending on your source, or what you use, like Cardioflow or EDTA). Naturopathic Dr.s usually offer this process and products.
