It is very reassuring to have found a treatment which will hopefully keep my hands in reasonable working order into the future.


Hello Aryan,

I am curious as to the state of your DD some 4yrs later.

Re: Massage therapy

I'm a 52 year old male and was diagnosed a year ago. I have it in 3 fingers, with pronounced lumps on the palm of two fingers on my right hand. and slight lump in my 3rd finger. I have no contractions as yet.
The lumps grew rapidly over the 3 months following diagnosis and my hand was painful. I went to a physio and he massaged my hand weekly and advised I self massage twice a day. I was very conscientious about this and very quickly I could feel the fascia tissue start to soften. I've kept up twice (sometimes more) daily massages since. I use almond oil but any oil will do. The disease has stopped progressing and the pain has gone but I'll keep massaging twice a day for the rest of my life and hope it stays like it is.
It may be there is no relationship between the massage and the improvement but it certainly gives me a feeling of control and a better mental attitude. (David, NZ)

Great news David !, glad to hear you feel you have taken control. This is something the Doctors rob their patients of when they say don't worry about it until you have contraction.

Re: Massage therapy

Cumulus, try to use warm hemp oil and you will be surprised.

Also try to cut radically sugar(all kind), animal protein and improve the consum of hemp seeds, flax seeds, lime, turmeric and ginger.

I had a great improvement in few days over my Dup and rheumatoid arthritis.
Avoid tomatoes. As Italian I use to eat tomatoe every day and I have noticed that when I ate tomato the contracture was improved.

Nutrition

Hi Regina,

nutritional recommendations for Dupuytren's are difficult, possibly because of different body reactions and constitutions. Eating tomatoes actually has been one of the few likely good recommendations for reducing Dupuytren's. A forum member reported that when it was tomatoe harvest time, he ate a huge a mount of tomatoes and noticed significant improvement of his Dupuytren's, some time after the harvest his contracture eventually severed again. But obviously everyone is different, which makes recommendations generally difficult as long as they have not been verified on a larger number of patients. Of course there is nothing wrong in reporting own experience, that's what our forum is for, but you should be aware that it may not be effective for every patient.

Hello Aryan,

Sorry for the delay in replying. My hands are fine. I get a treatment from Steven Jeffrey regularly just to keep them supple and for my peace of mind and reassurance. I really feel that massage therapy is the way to go as an initial treatment anyway. What have you got to lose!?
