It makes sense to use conservative Dupuytren’s treatment options first. There are currently 15 different non-drug and non-surgical therapy options on the DCI list now, and the list is growing. As a result, DCI helps many people greatly delay or permanently avoid hand surgery.
DCI is not against hand surgery. The problem is, too many people use surgery first. We think it should be used last. If surgery does not go well, as happens 20-60% of the time, there is no way to truly reverse a surgical problem. Surgery to correct surgery is just more surgery, which is a second opportunity to trigger even more DC fibrous tissue. For this, the surgeon will suggest more surgery. That is like using gasoline to put out a fire.
Surgery only after conservative therapy options fail
Caution says to avoid disturbing the abnormal Dupuytren’s palm lump and finger cord. Instead, use all available non-surgical Dupuytren’s treatment options and do them well. As a result, DCI receives 8-10 reports of moderate to marked improvement of palm nodules and finger cords when people use the large plan, for each report of failure.
Nasty truth about Dupuytren’s contracture
Like it or not, this is the basic problem of Dupuytren’s contracture surgery: A DC hand makes an abnormal amount of collagen and fibrin in response to a cut or injury. Each hand surgery is an opportunity for even more fibrous tissue. It can happen immediately (2-3 months). Or it can happen later (a few years). It is just a matter of time. And the new nodule will be worse than before the hand surgery. That is the nature of the DC-beast. This ability to over-produce fibrous tissue explains why people with DC have 2-4-6 hand surgeries.
Unfortunately, additional scarring usually causes new and greater hand problems. As the fibrous tissue expands, greater pain, finger contraction, weakness, numbness, clumsiness, coldness etc. occur. This cycle explains why some DC results eventually in amputation. For this reason, it is wise to try to avoid surgery completely by first using conservative Dupuytren’s treatment options.
DCI research of Dupuytren’s treatment options
Between 2004-2021 DCI conducted five research projects, looking for better ways to reduce palm nodules and finger cords. As a result, DCI developed a new method to determine the correct dosages and ratios of nutrients among the many Dupuytren’s treatment options available.
This discovery was based on an early observation. When we would slowly and gradually elevate the dosages of a few therapy items, we often saw rapid and dramatic changes in the size, shape, density and degree of adhesion (SSDD) of the fibrous tissue. Low dosages did not cause much SSDD change; it was only higher dosages that could improve the SSDD. Of course, the dosages were different for different people, but all were higher than any standard suggested dosage. We found that by increasing these dosages and changing these ratios we could see small early changes in the SSDD of most of our research subjects. To no one’s surprise, refining our process of increasing the dosages improved the treatment results. While everyone wants their finger to straighten, or their palm to flatten on the tabletop, those things only happen because the SSDD of the fibrous tissue first improved. The DCI system of studying and using the SSDD allows us to see these changes earlier and control dosing, for much better results.
Early DC progress is small and builds on itself. So, if you only measure the angle of your flexed finger or how flat you can make your palm, you will miss critical information. You will think you are failing when you are actually winning the battle against DC – and maybe quit.
Other Dupuytren’s treatment option research findings
Along the way we also confirmed that using a small treatment plan – just one vitamin or nutrient (even important ones like vitamin E, L-arginine or PABA) have little to no effect on DC. Nutrients work best when combined with other nutrients – just like in our food. It is only medical doctors who tell people to take vitamin E by itself for DC. Even so, vitamin E cannot force a change in the body because it is a vitamin, not a drug. Vitamin E only works in combination with other nutrients.
Can’t find what you are not looking for
Simply put, we learned that it is easy to look for and find the tiny, tiny changes that can happened just a few weeks after starting DCI treatment. These small signs of progress happen in the SSDD long before the big changes become obvious. But first, you must know what and how to look for early in your treatment. To say it another way, we learned before the building falls down it is easy to see small cracks in the foundation if you look for them.
For this reason, we have our customers change their dosages, and in great detail measure and evaluate the SSDD every 7-10 days. They know more about their palm nodules than their doctors. DCI tells people to not guess about progress. You must know the exact SSDD at the start of self-care because it accurately guides all treatment decisions you will make.
DCI customers like using the DCI treatment approach. They feel confident when they know what they are doing. They finally feel in control of a bad situation. No one has to guess what to do.
These important research findings resulted in a more logical, discipled and effective method to use all natural Dupuytren’s treatment options.

DCI treatment method puts you in control
Dupuytren’s contracture ruins lives. For this reason, the DCI method of using Dupuytren’s treatment options is aggressive. Using natural Dupuytren’s treatment options correctly is not as easy as popping a few pills, hoping for something good to happen. Here is an overview:
- Fundamentally, DCI focuses treatment on the person with DC. We work to increase your ability to heal your DC better than you are now. Many people have a palm lump for a few months that eventually just goes away. This is because they self-heal their DC. We want you in that group.
- DCI combines different Dupuytren’s treatment options for 2-3 months of intensive work to support tissue healing. During this time slowly increase the dosages to help you change the fibrous tissue SSDD. Like every general going into battle, we use many kinds of weapons, in different ways, from different directions, at different targets, for different purposes. Because Dupuytren’s contracture is a complex problem it is often necessary to fine tune the Dupuytren’s treatment options until the SSDD respond.
- DCI identifies high quality therapies like research grade vitamins, minerals, enzymes etc. This work is too difficult and too important to trust bargains. After all, a lot of people are trying to avoid hand surgery, so it is important for this to work.
- Demand small, positive, measurable changes in the SSDD within 10-14 days after changing your therapy plan. If the SSDD does not respond, you will know how to handle that situation.
- Closely monitor the abnormal tissue for improvement from beginning to end. You will confidently know how to evaluate your problem and your progress.
- DCI provides detailed instructions how to correctly follow the DCI treatment protocol. No one guesses what to do.
Many like the idea of self-treatment with natural therapy. But they are not sure which ones or how to use them. So, they never start. Or they listen to people with no experience using any Dupuytren’s treatment options. Of course, that makes no sense.
Actually, this is a fairly simple idea. And it makes a lot of sense. However, it must be done in the right way. We have spent two decades developing a safe and logical system of care that gets surprisingly good results. DCI will show you how to get started, what to do, what not to do.
