milk thistle

Mr. X,
You're right. There has been a lot of good information
provided about reversing or slowing down dupuytrens. I
think we all agree that there is no cure and everything
suggested is to help in the overall picture. Our research
on healthy liver functions provided information on Milk
Thistle Extract (silymarin). John offered good information
on soy lecithin under "Natural Approach to DC" and Thomas
continued with more on lecithin under "Dupuytrens Diet".
Jerry and others have given information on Vitamin C and
glucosamine as promoting growth of DC. Dave provided the
knowledge of Beta Blockers for hypertension as having a
side effect for Peyronnies under "Beta Blocker drugs...".
We all need to share our knowledge, and appreciate the many
others who have shared theirs.

Milk thistle extract

JEH,
I first learned of milk thistle extract to promote a
healthy liver at our local General Nutrition Center (GNC).
On their instore computer they can pull up various vitamins
and supplements that are liver enhancers. Of all that apply
however, milk thistle apeared to be the best by far. It is
also called silymarin. It is a liver anti-oxidant that aids
the liver in not absorbing harmful materials. If you do a
few searches you will have plenty of sites come up. Even
though many are sites for selling the product, I have found
useful info on those too. What I have read about it is
very impressive. If you purchase some, read the label. I
originally purchased some for my husband that also contained
extra Vit. C. After learning from Jerry that DC sufferers
need to avoid extra Vit. C, I then went back and they did
have some without the Vit. C. I have even seen it in some
regular grocery stores, but it usually had the extra Vit. C.
Let me know if you have any trouble finding out more.
Good luck.

radio frequency

Was just reading about the ArthroCare company that makes instruments for repairing damaged joints. These scalpals use radio frequency energy to dissolve unneeded tissue with precision, while mimimizing damage to healthy tissue nearby. Do hand doctors think there may be a future application here for Dup?

Much to learn my young Patawan

Ground Control To Mr. X:

Just getting American Surgeons to consider the idea that a single option such as NA is a valid alternative is radical change enough for the moment. Maybe once they get the hang of actual change, they'll explore wiz-bang stuff for the cases where traditional surgery is needed.

Dupuytren~sq~s syndrome

i am living in australia. my mother has been recently diagnosed as having Dupuytren's syndrome and her doctor has said that the only cure available is surgery. I have been reading on this forum about NA (Needle aponevrotomy). What is this may have some more information in regards to this. Is this an alternative to surgery?

Dupuytren~sq~s contrature

Dupuytren's contracture,
I may have a cure for this problem. By symtoms that are listed for Dupuytren's contracture this is probably what I had. I thought that I just had arthritis in my knukle and fingers. But by eating fresh Aloe vera every morning I can now use my hand again and the fingers do not curl up.
Sincerely,
Benton Bain
