Herniated Disks

I just read all of your information in regards to prolotherapy, and found it quite interesting. My wife has gone to all of the doctors and they all say surgery. The issue is this: L4 and L5 are herniated, and she has degenerated disks overall. It sounds like the prolotherapy would help to take care of the latter, but what about the herniation? What do we do about that?

There is an IV colchicine protocol which is effective in most cases of herniation and, as you say, prolotherapy will stabilize an unstable spine which is, after all, the fundamental problem. Actually the fundamental problem is acidity which leads to degnerative diseases in the first place, but that is another story already written about several spots in this web site. You can use Search This Site above to find those lyrics.
