Do any fresh raw juices help Dupuytren contracture?

I am 70 years old and have had the lumps on both hands since childhood. They were just there and never were a problem until the last two or there years. Dupuytrens runs in the family, my younger brother had surgery and my grandfather had it.

I have been a vegetarian since 1968 and am in very good health. I have used fresh, raw vegetable and fruit juice therapy to completely cure arthritis, gout and even hepatitis and a liver problem. The principle of fresh, raw juice is like the DCI therapy, the use of enzymes. I have been using the DCI medium plan for about three weeks now and am noticing substantial softening of the tissue and I am very pleased with the progress. I follow the recommended dosage that came with the first order.

So my question: In your experience have you run across any fresh, raw juices that help? I have followed the advice in a little book by Dr Walker regarding fresh, raw juice and can only say these juice therapies have worked for me and others I have recommended the book to. Thank you for your work on this disease, the world needs healers.

Greetings William,

In families with strong genetic predisposition it is not unheard of to have hand nodules begin at a very early age, such as you seem to have experienced. 

I am pleased you are noticing good changes in your hands with the DCI treatment concept.

I have not found that the enzyme content of most juices is concentrated enough to do the good you are looking for, or that the enzymes are the type to reverse the collagen structure the way that Fibrozym, Nattokinase and Neprinol can accomplish.

Keep up the good work and let me know o your further progress.  TRH

    i have had the xiapex injection in my right hand litle finger, with great results for dupuytren’s contracture. i also drink pure pinnaple juice
    and find it works wonders, hand does not itch at night, lumps seem to be softer.
    i also take eskimo 3 (omega 3 vitamen e capsells)

    Greetings Dezmond,

    Glad to hear you are pleased with your Xiaflex outcome. What are you basing your success on? You mention that you are drinking pure pineapple juice (for the bromelain enzymes it contains) and essential fatty acid omega 3s which is for hand itching and to keep your lumps softer. Frequently I have people tell me something like, “I have had great results with Xiaflex treatment for my Dupuytren’s contracture except that now all their fingers are completely numb, my palm lumps are coming back, after one year I still can’t brush my teeth, and I am having reconstruction surgery next week to repair that part of my thumb that was destroyed by the enzymes, but other than that the Xiaflex procedure was great.” Is that kind of thing going on with you, Dezmond? Sometimes our standards are set too low when we deal with Dupuytren’s contracture. Good luck to you. TRH
