MSM and heel spurs

Posted by Tracy on 2/07/00 at 00:00 (015567)

I don't know if this will help anyone else, but it sure did the trick for me. My doctor kept giving me shots for my heel spur and they lasted about two weeks. I talked to my aunt who is a health food person. She reccommended a daily vitamin regiment that has me pain free from the spur. I take one multi-vitamin, 1000mg of vitamin c, 400mg vitamin e and 500mg MSM. This combination has done wonders. was to the point where it was painful to walk. I am now running up to five miles a day with zero pain.
