This article is to detail how I healed my lower back from ankylosing spondylitis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative joint and disc disease. The doctors said only surgery would help and if I did not have it, I would become paralyzed from waist down. That was in 2007.
A few months later I was told to have the surgery on my lower back as I had vertebrae on top of vertebrae, L1 through S1. This was causing compression of nerves and cutting off circulation to my legs, especially my left leg. I had to use a cane for walking as I could not feel my left leg. Not wanting anymore surgeries, I researched alternatives and set out to heal my joints naturally. Per the advise of my pain management doctor, who was also a chiropractor, I bought and used an inversion table. I also drank over a gallon of water per day, exercised as I could, and got at least 15 minutes of direct sunlight per day, as I could, so my body could make Vitamin D (which is not an actual vitamin but a hormone the body needs for many things). I had already changed to a vegan diet a year before and got off most of the pharmaceutical drugs, of which I was totally off of all in 2008, in order to cure my stage 4 bone marrow cancer. Those dietary changes immensely helped with my spinal healing.
The numbness was gone in one month. The next MRI that was done 6 months later, showed the vertebrae back to normal. The next EMG, nerve conduction test, done one year later, showed NO nerve damage. Damage that the doctors said would never heal!
Do NOT let anyone, even a doctor, tell you that you cannot heal from anything, as it is NOT true!
There are NO incurable dis-eases. You do have to make the necessary changes however, in order to heal and stay healthy.
Have a blessed day!
