I have always believed that the proof was in the pudding. What works for one may not work for others. As a sufferer of carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis for the past 7 years I have found glucosamine to be a great help. I think one should test the amount by taking the same dosage for at least a week to see what happens. I take 1500 mg. per day and it helps. When things get really painful then I add my anti-inflammatory medication. I can't see why doctors and herbalists can't work together. Isn't the bottom line helping people to keep their pain under control?

Glucosamine sulfate has been a very successful alternative that I have suggested to my clients. Its effect is many times more beneficial with the use of Chondroitin sulfate. I personally take Glucoseamine sulfate 750 mg x 2 per day and Chondroitin sulfate 600 mg x2 per day. Many of my clients are seeing the benefits with these amounts. If you have a weight problem it is advisable that you get your weight down within normal limits to take the stress off the lower limbs.

I am researching glucosamine sulfate for my friend. She recently started taking this and I am not sure if it was prescribed by a Dr. or if she bought it over the counter. If it even is an over the counter drug. But she has been very sluggish and tired since she began taking this. I am wondering if this is a normal side effect and if anyone else has experienced this. I do believe she is also on a thyroid medication and wondering if that could have a reaction to the glucosamine sulfate

Osteoarthritis had me down! Years of head to foot pain,5 foot surgeries,a knee arthroscopy,using a wheel chair and walker, and 3 orthopedists who told me the only solution was a knee replacement. After several months of taking glucosamine and shark cartilage, then 3 weeks of 1500mg. of glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate, I am up again - walking, sleeping, and living without pain!

Thanks, Gloria, for sharing your experience.

It is typical of what I have seen as well. It certainly is not a cure once things have reached this point, However, it will at least give you a lot of relief for years without the side effects associated with the drugs I learned to use in medical school.

Why are not rheumatologists teling thier patients about this? Veterinarians have been seeing these results for many years. The only answer I have been able to come up with is that the monopony we have in this country feels threatened by any remedy that can be recommended by a non-MD. The AMA sees it as direct competition whereas I see it as complementary to conventional medicine.

I guess is all comes down to what the system is all about. Is it to help the patient get well or is it to protect the income of those of us who have the monopoly?

I'm clearly coming in in the middle of the movie, but .......

Having developed severe knee pain over the past several months, and having been on gluco..../chon........ (hereinafter G/C) for the past ten days or so (with detectable results), I'm struck by Walt Stoll's allusioin to the importance of "learning about and dealing with the causes of (my) condition."

In that regard: what *are* the causes of the conditions for which G/C is being identified as a solution, and where can one learn more about them?

Dear Charlie,

There are very many skeletal system conditions that are benefitted by glucosamine/chondroitin (or either one of them alone). The most common condition that causes chronic knee pain is degenerative arthritis of the knee joint in an aging individual.

If we are talking about YOUR problem, I would have to know enough about you to discuss the causes of YOUR condition & what your options might be. Do you know what your actual diagnosis is?

Arthritis is such a good example of the superiority of dealing with causes--as opposed to simply treating the symptoms as I was taught in medical school--that I have dedicated a number of chapters in my new book to the causes behind chronic conditions like this. I have even dedicated an entire chapter to the causes, & resolution, of arthritis as such.

If you will pass on to me what your actual diagnosis is, I will be happy to discuss it here on the BB. Others deserve the opportunity to learn how to help themselves.

THEN, as you continue to improve, I would appreciate your sharing your experiences with the BB participants.

Walt

I heard about glucosamine just few days ago and I wonder whether it will be worth considering it in my case...
I have been diagnosed with SLE since 1994 and for almost 3 years I have been on high corticosteroid treatment which on my opinion was excessive and uneffective but anyway as a result of this overmedication and the steroid side effects, few days ago I was diagnosed with avascular bilateral necrosis of both femoral heads... :(and threatened with "inevitable hip replacement"...:(
I am in my way to do an MRI test to see what exactly the damages are but still I am researching some opportunities to help myself meanwhile... :)
I would appreciate ANY IDEAS that you might have for me...

Dear Darina,

I hope you don't mind my jumping in here but I just couldn't resist. You desperatley need to start understanding the underlying causes of a condition like your SLE rather than just reacting to the complications one by one.

By the way, I am sure you know that your avascular necrosis is a complication of your cortisone TREATMENT & not a result of the SLE. The only thing the cortisone was even considered for was to suppress your symptoms. You still have done nothing about looking at this at a deeper level.

This is not YOUR fault but an inevitable consequence of our country having a monopoly that says we can only think about disease & health in one very narrow way.

If you are interested in learning about some of the options available for you to help yourself, that you are being denied because of the monopoly, write again here on the BB so others might learn from our communications.

I have osteoarthritis in both knees. I had cartilage removed from the right 35 years ago and 3 years ago a piece of bone wedge removed to shift my weight to the outside cartilage . The other knee suffers as a result of the increased stress. Walking is becoming a major problem and I'm just 50. Do you think that the glucosamine would do me any service or is knee replacement my only options. Pain relief medication no longer has much effect.

A friend just recommended glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate for my chronic knee problem, which is degenerative arthritis and way off-line knee caps. One orthopod says a scope and lateral release may help, but I'd try lots else first. GNC sells the stuff for $25+ per 60 tablets (I think it's 250mg of gs and 200 of cs), with a recommended daily dosage of 6 tablets for my weight. Are there side effects? Someone asked about "mad cow" disease, I guess because of the bovine cartilege. Any liver issues at these dosages? Is it available in any more economical form? Are there good discussions of theory, effects and costs on the web? Thanks for your help.

Folks,

I've been on and off of corticosteroids (prednisone, dexamethasone) for the last 9 years as part of cancer treatment. As a result I have some avascular necrosis (AVN) in several spots, most notably my right hip, where xrays & MRIs show a collapsed femoral head.

Is there any chance that glucosamine and chondroitin could help at all with this condition or would it be like shooting the walrus to pacify the buffalo herd?

Thanks.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Hi Dr. Stoll
I just read the following on the Internet about someone who said they have healed their Leaky Gut with the following. N-Acetyl-Glucosamine ( intestinal wall glue) &
Dudzu root extract (artifical herbal lining.) They said their symptoms began to improve dramatically. I have located these two in a health food book at reasonable prices, but wanted to check into it before I spend another penny on trying something I have never heard of. Any info is appreciated.

Hi Melva,
Good to chat with you again. I read the same post as
you and to tell you the truth recently I have only began
to understand the role in wich leaky gut has been playing
in my symptomology. It appears a lot of the time that I
am much more chemically sensitive than I really am because
my body is so overburdened from electro-magnetic reactions
and leaky gut reactions that there is no reserve left
for the chemical burdens. Therefor I react to everything
like mad. During the few periods I have been able to
curb the leaky gut thing I have noticed that my chemical
sensitiveties have been dramatically less and what I have
previously thought to be all chemical smell related has
actually been being fueled by the leaky gut. At any rate
I have been anxious to try l-glutamine for sometime now
but like yourself get hung up on the cost real easy.

I have become so convinced that I don't stand
a chance without curbing this leaky gut candida mess
in my gut.So m uch so that I went out and bought Kudzu
N-acetl glucosamine and l-glutamine. I have been on it
I think for three days now. I am not sure what to
expect or when to take it etc. etc.. I take one 500mg.
l-glutamine,two 250mg. n-acetl glucosamine and one 2.5
mg. standardised daidzein/daidzin(kudzu) all three times
a day. sometimes with a meal sometimes without(I need
advice). I can only say at this point I feel it to be
helping me. I however can't believe that it could be
having an effect already but it seems to be. I would
appreciate any feedback on this from anyone who has
experience with these products. Usually things don't
help me much that I can tell. I think this stuff is
having an effect. I however must get way more experimental
with this to know for sure. I am reacting less. The
question is, is this the reason?
I will know more in a week or so when I have
actually had time to analyze it all more thoroughly
so take my conclusions so far with a grain of salt. I
will surely let you know of the future outcome. So far
thumbs up but to early to tell for sure.
Take care,
Raul

Thete are many alternatives that are much better for you than the chemicals that are being ingested by the tons that are supposed to be the panceas for all the ails you. After the test is done on the public many of these are pulled off the market. God given natural vitamins, minerals, and herbs will always be around.

Spinal Fusion, Vicodin and CMO

Posted by Robert Belcher on August 19, 1997 at 14:36:59:

I recently had a spinal fusion and exploratory laminectomey. This was to treat DDD and built up scar tissue at L4-5. I had a microdiscectomy in 1991 and was OK until 11/96. Since then I have had major back and leg pain. To deal with the pain I've taken Vicodin. I had 3 epidural steriod shots before I had the surgery. I am tired of taking the pain medications(about 8-9 months). I tried to go without them for a day and the withdrawal symptoms were worse than the back pain. I've read that one can go off a narcotic by gradually reducing the dose. Also I was recommeded to look into CMO and glucosamine with chrondroitin sulfate to help with osteoarthritic pain and Omega 3 oils with sea cucumber and tumeric for inflammation. I probably have another 10 months for my fusion to complete. I also have restarted physical therapy. Any suggestions?

Well I have come across some more information on
this and it appears there is a product called
"permeability factors" by Tyler Encapsulations of
Gresham Oregon that inlcludes l-glutamine(preferential
fuel for intestinal cells) and n-acetyl-d-glucosamine
wich is made by these cells from glutamine(many people
don't efficiently do this however). It also includes
gamma linolenic acid(counters inflammation),gamma
oryzanol(anti-oxidant protection and helps to normalise
gastrointestinal function) and vitamin E. Of course
if one were to react to this they were have to
singley figuire out what they could tolerate and
take it. Best taken on an empty stomache.

Also recommended are folic acid, vitamin A, zinc,
vitamin C, and quercitin(an anti-allergic, anti-
inflammitory herbal bioflavinoid). Herbs such as
licorice root(hey good for liver too),slippery elm,
goldenseal,marshmellow root and plantain. And
a free form hypo-allergenic multiple amino acid
supplement.

Of interest is a drug called Gastrocom(cromalyn sodium)
wich can effectively block food reactions and
associated inflammations and enable one to eat and
tolerate many more foods while the leaky gut heals!

DHEA is recommended to help normalise the T-helper
to T-suppressor ratio if one has low levels. If
cortisol is low adrenal support is recommended.

Ralph Gordon M.D. You might want to check it out.

I'm a 32 yr old man (5'11" at 209 lbs) who has degenerative disc disease from my neck to lower back. I've got bulging discs, mild central spinal stenosis, and joint arthritis.

I herniated a disc at L3-4 this past January and didn't like the M.D.'s response to my question as to what I can do with my condition; i.e., live with the pain and the "bad" genetics.

I started taking 1-4 1,000 mg of GS less than a week ago. Do you think this supplement or any other supplement could reconstruct or aid me for a sustained period of time? (I've tried shark cartilage, calcium and magnesium, and plenty of pain relievers.)

I'd like to avoid surgery and would love to enjoy a more active lifestyle once again; but, I'd settle for a pain-free time from here on out. (I get these "brittle" pops that hurt everyday in my neck and mid to lower back.)

P.S. I used to jog 25-50 miles a week (for 15 years), play intramural tennis, racquetball, and lift heavy free weights.

Thanks for any advice.

Dear Debby,

It sure couldn't hurt. You would soon know if it was going to help. If I were you, though, I would comjbine it with the essential oils AND chondritin sulphate to get the quickest & most effect.

However, having said that, it sounds like your condition has progressed so far that you will ultimately have to have the surgery anyhow. At least you should be able to put it off a few years with physiologic approaches like this.

Remember, the conventional recommandations of: 1. Non weightbearing exercises (under water is best): 2. Weight control; 3. Stretching exercises; 4. The regular practice of skilled relaxation; etc., should al be done carefully as well.

You would benefit from reading a copy of my new book "Saving Yourself from the Disease-Care Crisis" since it goes into how to integrate dealing with the causes of this condition.

As you improve, please share your experiences with the paarticipants of this BB. Others deserve to know that there are alternatives--especially at an earlier stage than you are presently.

Do the effects of glucosamine change in anyway when paired with Chondroitin or Sulfate?

Dear Curt,

With this condition, you really need to learn as many things that contribute to the cause & do as many of them that you can TOGETHER. Each thing magnifies the effect of the rest & everything you can deal with will greatly increase your chances to finally resolve this. The glucosamine (& perhaps also adding chondroitin sulfate) will probably help. I would be amazed if it would be enough by itself.

Walt
