How long will large Dupuytren treatment plan last?

Dr. Herazy,

I would like to say I’m grateful I’ve found your website. After reading all the great information on your site, your approach to treating this condition really makes sense to me.

I want to order your large plan to treat my Dupuytren contracture, but I need to know how long each of the 11 items in the plan will last. I have to figure out what this is going to cost me to treat these lumps on my palm. No matter what it costs it will be worth it to avoid having Dupuytren surgery on my hand. Some of the horror stories I have read on the internet about people having their fingers amputated after several failed surgeries have me convinced your holistic approach is a more sensible way to go.


Greetings Tim,

Many people want an understanding about rate of product usage before starting treatment, and the costs involved,  so yours’ is a common concern.

Each person approaches his Dupuytren treatment plan a little differently, not only in regard to size of treatment plan and overall direction of therapy, but especially in terms of daily dosage.  While some men use an average vitamin E dose they will use a heavy vitamin MSM dose, and others do the opposite with a heavy vitamin E dose and an average MSM dose. Because of this, each bottle and each therapy plan will last for a variable length of time.  In other words, not all people who get a DCI Large Plan use it in the same way or at the same rate.  So, how long individual bottles of any therapy plan will last is a personal and variable issue for which I can only give you approximations based on what I see others doing.

This probably comes closest to tell you how long a particular group of therapies will last you in your effort to recover:  Based on my experience with others who use a DCI Large Plan, the average person re-supplies the DMSO, Unique-E vitamin E oil and Super CP Serum closer to every 3 months, Integral E 400/400 and Maxi-Gamma E, C, Scar-X, PABA, Quercetin/Bromelain and MSM about every 4-6 weeks.   The systemic enzymes replenished every 4 weeks.  Of course, the most expensive part of the Large Plan – the Genesen pointer pens – never has to be replaced.   My guess-timation is that the average person will spend about $80-110 monthly to replenish the Large Plan.

Besides, since the plans are composed of different count size bottles and containers, the numbers of days each can be used before running out is different from one therapy product to another.

You will find that there is an abundance of practical information and suggestions to maximize benefit and performance for each product that is sent to you.  I have a “stuffer” for every product that requires explanation and direction for taking it.  People comment that they are impressed with the follow-through in making sure that each person is given more than enough information in regard to when, when not, how, and how not.

Let me know how I can assist you to recover from your Dupuytren problem using Alternative Medicine.


Dupuytren Nutrition

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.
