With a little help broken bones can heal much faster than doctors say. I once told this to my boss over 30 years ago, long before I knew much about health at all. I did know something as I had the interest even then. I had read several health related books, mostly Adel Davis. Turns out my mentor was reading her at the same time. A lot has changed since then, but still my boss healed in half the time.
Actually, his doctor was flabbergasted. It was a clean break, but he has said that it would take ten weeks or so. Five weeks later Dave asked for an X-ray, but the doc said that would be impractical as they would have to take the cast off and there’s no way it was healed yet.
Dave went fishing a couple of days later and the cast got destroyed. On Monday he had to insist on an X-ray before being casted up again. The doc said that the only way he could find the bone fracture was because he knew where it was!
My arm had a multiple fracture that was supposed to take 16 weeks to heal, and 3 months before I could start exercising it more than just a little. It took 8 weeks, and two months after the break I was working with 20 pounds, a good amount for me in general.
I got started on the supplements a little late. Ideally one would take them before the break, but that’s pretty hard to plan. The earlier you can get started on them the better because a lot happens right after any serious injury.
The Right Form Of Calcium
One of the most important things is to have a good supply of bio-available calcium which means its been ionized. That happens in the presence of strong hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach. Most people don’t produce enough HCl to do this, so you’ll need to take supplements. There’s a problem though.
Eliminating H. Pylori
One thing HCl does is sterilize the contents of the stomach — nature’s way of protecting us from pathogens. Without that a very common bacteria that causes ulcers takes hold. It is now very easy to eliminate H. Pylori by drinking two cups of Brassica Tea a day for 10 days. It’s really good for you, so get a little extra if you can.
Most people can work on getting rid of the bacteria and take the HCl at the same time, as long as there’s no history of an ulcer. But, it’s pretty uncomfortable for those who can’t though, so it might be worth drinking the tea first. If you do take the HCL and it burns the stomach then take some baking soda to neutralize and drink the tea for 10 days before trying again.
Eliminating H. Pylori was researched at Johns Hopkins University, they discovered the way to eliminate it with an antioxidant found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Here’s where you can get the Brassica Tea that has that is rich in that antioxidant.
You can get the betaine HCl at most health food stores, or get the one from Standard Process.
Herbs For Pain And Healing
My experience with the recommended herbs is that they really helped with the pain. And, they aid in the healing process as well.
Most of the supplements are from Standard Process, some of the best supplements in the world. They distribute the MediHerb products too. There are links to the products on Amazon for your convenience. They give me a small percentage too, just to be on the up and up with you.
BONE HEALING PROTOCOL
Take supplements with food and herbs on an empty stomach — two hours after eating to an hour before eating. Both with food is much easier to remember and fine to do, but separate the herbs if you can.
Betaine HCl: 1 capsule when you eat (except very small snacks which are best skipped anyway.)
Biost: three twice a day
Calcifood: six Calcifood wafers or one tablespoon Calcifood power twice a day for two weeks then three wafers or one half tablespoon power twice a day.
CalMa Plus: three twice a day
Whole Dessicated Spleen: three twice a day
Standard Process Vitamin D: two tablets twice a day. Or, 5000 units a day Vitamin D3 — make sure there is some fat in the meal you take vitamin D with.
The above are the main supplements. I thought I’d break if for those who may be on a budget. Get these if you can.
Cataplex F: two am, one pm. This is especially important if you don’t eat fish or take fish oils regularly.
Echinacea Premium Tablets: two tabs am and one tab pm, or Liquid Echinacea Premium or 4mL am and 2mL pm
Ginko: two tabs or 2mL am, one tab or 1mL pm
I prefer the liquid herbs because they are more cost effective and because tasting the herbs increases the efficacy. If you get the tabs because you don’t like the taste, try to suck on them long enough to just taste before swallowing. Even a little can help a lot.
There’s the basics of how to heal a broken bone quickly. I hope you recover well with no after effects from your injury.
