Fighting Arthrosis - Can You Actually Rebuild Cartilage?

Hi.


 


I have friend, a women at 50 years of age, and due to sport accidents and years of work partly on her knees, is at the brink of a knee-replacement surgery.


 


Now she asked me if there are any diet/lifestyle/supplement recommendations to help either the knee that is about to be replaced OR the other knee that is hurting more and more because she had been stressing it more and more to keep weight of the broken knee.


 


So far I have recommended a low inflammation diet in order to loose weight


omega 3s


curcumin


collagen and vitamin C.


 


All surgeons she went to told her that there is no real chance and a replacement is needed.


 


Are there ANY good studies/cases that "proof" that you could save her from surgery with stuff like ozon therapy, the right nutrients and other "stuff"?!?


 


Hence,... IS there any way to REALLY regrow cartilage?


 


What has been done so fare was to thrill little holes into the bone in the knee to try to stimulate some stem cell regrowth etc. but that has not worked so far.


 


Thx a lot

  • Has your friend looked into articular cartilage paste grafting?


  • She could undergo an auto-transfusion of her stem cells and then have it injected into her knee. She can purchase stem cells but like a blood transfusion these run a 1 in 50 million chance of giving her an infection like Hepatitis C Virus. The question is whether or not there is enough to regrow. I experienced the same thing with my hip which I will be writing a detailed post about shortly. I tried Prolozone, just Ozone, Synvisc-1, Ketorolac and Ropivicaine. I didn't do PRP or stem cells because the were out of my price range and the reputation I heard about the local practitioners. Long story short after 10's of thousands of dollars and 2 and a half years of agony I am going for a total hip in 5 weeks. 


     


    Collagen, MSM, Vit C, glutathione and rectal ozone at 20-50 gamma could help slow progression.

    I've heard a lot of good things about stem cell but also that it is quite expensive. The meniscus can be a hard one to heal and a lot of doctors will say it can't heal without surgery, with the reason that 'it gets no blood flow', but it is living tissue, so it does get some. It doesn't get a lot, but it does get some. I work for a company as a soft tissue treatment adviser and meniscus tears are definitely the most common ailment I hear of. Good thing though, is that they can heal without surgery :) I hear of it all the time. The cartridge can regrow and heal itself. Here's a great link on the meniscus, the surgery, and the product I definitely recommend. http://kingbrand.com/meniscus_surgery.php

    while the info on that site was worth a read Mazie, thanks,

    what's with the REF=46PV98.199 bit at the end of the url... ?


    fake it till you make it

  • Hi Daz. I work with the company sometimes and get my info usually via email, so it could be an internal thing. To be honest, not overly sure. I also know that by me saying that, it could look like i'm spamming, but I gain a lot of information about all sorts of things as a treatment adviser and I 100% believe in this treatment. I've used it myself for my foot. I also get bored at work a lot so when i see posts about something I could possibly shed some light on, I can't help it :) I like to help. It's what I do. Sorry if that offends anyone.

    For healing, Dave always talks about lasers and PEMF, the somapulse definitely comes to mind! Supposedly it can speed up healing by a factor of 2 or more. (daves comments)

    Hello Stefan,


     


    Short answer is YES, you can regrow cartilage. It is always regenerating as long as it has the proper building blocks to do so and if you're not somehow stunting the body's ability to remove the old cells. This is the key, 


     


    She should try the following...


     


    - CUT OUT SUGAR, PROCESSED FOODS (Bulletproof Diet would be great)


     


    - ELIMINATE ALL NIGHTSHADES, such as potatoes (not sweet potatoes), tomatoes, eggplant, tobacco, gogi, etc.


    http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/link-between-nightshades-chronic-pain-and-inflammation


     


    - High-dose Niacinamide (no-flush type of B-3/niacin), 3000 mg/day in divided doses


     


    - High-dose vitamin C, at least 6000 mg/day in divided doses 


       ...And boost your total antioxidant pool, such as vitamin E, A, CoQ10, glutathione, alpha-lipoic acid, astaxanthin (from krill oil), etc.


     


    - Vitamin D3, 1000IU per every 25 lbs bodyweight.


     


    - Magnesium  (600 mg/in evening) 


     


    - High-dose Lysine, 3000 mg/day in divided doses


     


    - B-Complex 100


     


    - Boost Omega-3 essential fatty acids and limit Omega-6.


     


    - Zinc


     


    - Ginger extract up to 3 times daily (alternative to OTC pain-relievers)

    Hope this helps



    - For pain, ginger extract 3-4 times daily

  • Yes you can rebuild cartlidge. You really have to understand what cartlidge is, and it does grow back. I'm not going to make this any more complicated than it has to be. Because of the lack of blood flow and nerve supply, cartlidge grows mush slower than other tissue. That is the basics. Here are my tips on understanding cartlidge better.

    1. Saving my knees book
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004JHYTEI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477386018&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=Saving+My+Knees

    The author explains his battle with a near crippling cartlidge injury.

    2.

    Doug Kelsey is the person mentioned in the book. He designed the cartlidge rebuilding program. Follow the program. Step by step.

    3.
    http://Micro-Pulse.com

    Buy a Micro-Pulse pemf unit and begin using it right away.

    This is from my own personal experience. I have done all the above and I will tell you. It all works!
  • I am just wondering how is your friend now? I have read that studies found that 20% had pain in the front of the knee after a knee replacement during the first 5 years after the surgery. And even longer. 54% have chronic pain and 15% have severe pain.
    For everyone who is planning on doing a surgery, I ask you to consider all options before it. Stem Cell Therapy involves the use of stem cells to stimulate the body’s natural repair mechanisms to repair, regenerate or replace damaged cells, tissues and organs. You can choose any company that provide such services. My choice is Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics. You can send your MRI or X-ray to ARO and ask for their review. Link to it https://advancedregenerativeorthopedics.com/no-cost-mri-review.

  • Well in Dave's latest instagram story he was with his Dad in the hospital while he was getting replacement hip surgery. Sometimes there is probably no biohacking around it. If anyone would know how, it'd be Dave

    Stem cell therapy is not that expensive if you chose the clinic with doctors in-network with most major insurance carriers. For example https://advancedregenerativeorthopedics.com the doctors’ visits and prescriptions there will be partially covered by health care.
