Nutrition and Disc regeneration
I need multiple levels of discs replaced and have been researching all alternatives. Since I do not presently have the funding to allow disc replacement for all levels in Germany, I searched for alternatives. I started to work with nutritionist Karen Hurd atwww.karenhurd.com and wished I would have found her long ago. She has almost 20 years of experience helping people with health ailments with success. My condition will take 18-24 months to see improvement she states. She is available in person or can consult over the phone. I have only been working with her 3 months and wanted to lose any extra weight and gain core strength until I can afford surgery. Even though I am housebound with disabilty from my back condition and get no exercise, I have lost 15 pounds and I am eating all the time and never feel deprived or hungry. Please note that I am 2 inches shorter than I used to be from disc degeneration, I am 5'8" weighed 195# and now weigh 180#, If I lose another 15# over time this should take stress off of my spinal column while I save for disc replacement surgery. I have noticed some activation of core muscle and she is confident of cell regeneration of the disc material given time.....time will answer that question and it is an option that is non invasive. If you cannot afford to pay for disc replacement and choose to avoid a fusion, it may be an option for you as well. If anyone has any other suggestions it would be very welcome to me.
