Alternative Healing-Herbs etc, any thoughts??

Posted by Denise on 5/16/01 at 01:54 (047903)

Someone suggested I go to my local health food store and get something to take orally for my heel spur, I just don't believe that a remedy could be that simple! But maybe there's an herb out there that might aid in the healing process.
Any thoughts????

Ginger is supposed to be an excellent anti-inflammatory herb. I have just started to take a product from the health food store called Zyflamend, which contains ginger, turmeric and other herbs. Also, if you do a search on 'bromelain' on this board, you will see that some have had success with it. There is a book called 'Prescription for Nutritional Healing', which is a good reference book for supplements and herbs. Good luck.

Hi Helene,
Thanks for the info. I'm going to the health food store tomorrow!!
Did you read Gayle's post about Magnesium Oratate? I would like more info on that as well. Keep in touch and let us all know if the Zyflamend works for you. Good luck
