Using natural supplements for Dupuytren contracture
The large idea behind using a wide variety of natural vitamin, mineral, herbal and enzyme supplements to treat Dupuytren contracture is not to treat Dupuytren contracture. Got that?
Simply, the various natural therapies found in the different DCI therapy plans are not focused so much on the actual diseased Dupuytren fascial contracture or the flexed fingers, but on the person who has this terrible problem. We advocate treating the person and not the Dupuytrens. This might seem like a small point, but it is actually critical if you want to understand how to do your treatment plan well.
The intent of the Dupuytren concept we propose is not to treat the disease but to address the problems of the person who has the disease, so he/she can function better to reduce or eliminate the problem in whatever way is necessary. When this type of broad-based nutritional support is done thoroughly and well, the goal is to assist and support the immune response of that person with Dupuytren contracture to deal with that problem better than he/she has previously. Coupling the nutritional therapy with frequent at-home physical therapy techniques that are simple and easy to do, the results are a very gratifying 60-80% success. This is accomplished without risk of drug side-effects, complications, infections, or recurrence of the problem – all of which can occur with Dupuytren surgery.
If you click on Dupuytren Contracture treatment Options you will find a list of various natural therapies, like vitamin E, MSM, acetyl-L-carnitine, PABA, DMSO, several different kinds of systemic enzymes, etc. The treatment idea that makes the DCI philosophy of care so different is that we propose that you combine many of these to develop a synergistic plan of attack against your Dupuytren cords so your body can deal with them better than it ever has.
Have you heard or read that there is no evidence that vitamin E can help your Dupuytrens? Well, it might surprise you to know that I also believe that is true; I think that vitamin E does not help Dupuytrens – when it is used by itself. But, when vitamin E is combined with a high dosage of other nutritional therapies as you see listed above, the results can be dramatic. The drug and medical research establishment have never treated Dupuytren contracture the way we do at DCI.
DCI is getting results with Dupuytren contracture because we are using nutrition in a different way than they know about.
Read the DCI website, learn there is a different way to treat this problem in your hand. Dupuytren nutrition is not only about your hand, it is about all of you. See if our approach makes sense to you.
