Degenerative Disc Led to Bloating?

Posted by K (Anonymous) on 06/19/2012

Hello Ted! I am a 59 year old Caucasian, with high blood pressure, that needs help with bloating issue that feels like I'm about to explode or have a heart attack, now oddly enough some of the issues I was having were helped but not cured by remedies from Earth Clinic, but it seems that upon lifting anything heavy the bloating returned with a vengeance.

I had been diagnosed many years (15) ago with degenerative disc disease, and even had a double herniated disk operation in my neck, to stop the excruciating debilitating pain shooting down into my left arm, they fused a piece of my hip where the disk was or something like that, I believe it was disk 4 and 5. And as I got older I found that I could lift less and less without some kind of issue cropping up. Fast forward to present day, I find if I lift for example an 18L bottle of water, within minutes I get the bloating issues, (of course the doctors are wanting to cut out my gall bladder ). Now what I have found is if I lay on my back on a hard surface for a few minutes or hang my self suspended in air with my legs dangling this almost immediately stops the bloating. Anyways my question to you is can skeletal issues cause nerve issues and then effect bloating or organ problems. If so is there anything I can do to fix this permanently.

One other side-note, at the neck area and hip area where the cuts were made I now have a Lipoma, I saw a remedy on Earth-Clinic about DMSO, Aloe Vera Oil, and Clove oil, would this be appropriate for me ...any thoughts on this would be also greatly appreciated.

Thank you Ted... truly you are a humanitarian.

It is known for quite some time that degenerative disc is caused by a common bacteria that grows slowly inside the disc, such as corynebacterium, which is in the same family as acne and diphtheria. So that is why DMSO (with a little say 1% tea tree oil, iodine, or lavender oil) would help.

A Rife frequency that deals specifically with acne and diphtheria where the device must have a footpad, hand electrodes, and a ray tube) for example the ray tube is applied to the back will specifically kill them also. I have modified the frequency but that will generally do it. The pain may be caused by a virus, if the general area, or it could be caused by accumulating uric acid. The blood tests will not show you to be high in uric acid, but if low circulation it will be an error, so I would take 100 mg allopurinol twice a day, one at night and one in the morning, there will be some pain (in some cases) for the first day, but will subside significantly within a week. Viruses may usually be killed by lysine supplements, maybe 1000 mg x 3 for a week to see some results. With the Rife, if you have the proper device you will be helped within an hour and may provide temporary relief from the condition, but for some, it may permanently relieve the condition. Because the Codex Alimentarius has been passed as signed by Obama (and others), the law is now in effect to prevent their sales, so the best we can do in the future is to obtain equipment such as a proper Rife machine, as the herbal and supplements will not be available, slowly. Rife machines we can bypass the laws by obtaining a Frequency generator, if bad comes to worse.

For quick relief and healing, hyaluronic acid 0.5 grams and sea salt 10 grams with water 500 cc. Take 5 caps three times a day. It will really help, it takes about 30 minutes to get relief, and in some cases a complete cure due to synovial fluid deficiency (synovial fluid is hyaluronic acid 99% and chondroitin about 1%). That is what I have witnessed.

In my experience, the clients that have back problems generally are easier to treat, if you have the right set of treatments.

What does he mean, 5 caps?

Did anyone figure out or decipher Ted's recipe for degenerative disc disease? Just received diagnosis. I'm in terrible pain.

Was wondering if you had any success with pain relief. I' ve hyaluronic acid liquid (some blueberry flavored one on Amazon) mixed with water and sea salt for a week, not much help yet. But Im willing to try again if someone can recommend a brand to buy? There seems be confusion on what type, powder or liquid and which brand. Anybody have any idea what works for them?

W, if you're willing to work at it, look up Pete Egoscue's exercises. His book Pain Free is very good as are his clips online.

This was Ted's original post on Earth Clinic I copied a few years ago. I found the powder with no cutting agents on the Walmart website. Just started today. I never heard it was okay to use liquid. Some tips/clarification on trying this... start with room temp water bottle (appx 500cc of water, if cold it doesn't want to mix used vitamix to get it to mix with cold water) also, when he writes take 5 or 8 caps 3x a day. He literally was saying the cap on the water bottle. Hope this helps.


Ted from Bangkok, Thailand writes: "Hyaluronic acid, yes I buy them from purebulk. The only particular brand I like is not the brand itself but for those formulations used for horses, which is proven to work. Hyaluronic acid is way better then the popular Glucosamine sulfate. It is a miracle supplement against back pain caused by degenerative spinal column.

My formula that works is as follows: 500 mg of Hyaluronic acid powder (sodium hyaluronate) plus 9 grams of sea salt in 500 cc of water. Store in refrigerator when not in used. The formula advocated by the (purebulk) will not work as it degrades Hyaluronic acid since vitamin C will obviously degrade them. They do get more stable if EDTA is added in small amounts as free metal irons tend to degrade them. The dose is about 8 caps three times a day empty stomach. It takes about 2 weeks to completely remove all back pain and the joint affected area in extremities may take a little longer. I have a couple of cases with severe spinal degeneration of cartilage and gets fully restored upon taking of HA. What the HA does is very simple. It is a major component of synovial fluid - spinal fluids. It is also found in your skull that acts as a shock absorber. So if the movie Rocky got decomissioned from boxing, the HA will restore the brain concussion and helps boxers against brain damage as HA will act as shock absorber between the brain and the skull.

As for the severe cartilage degeneration, the cause is simple: your cartilage works like a hydraulic system. The HA (Hyaluronic acid) is the hydraulic fluids which fills up the spinal column. The addition of HA fills up the deflated tire of your cartilage, thus restoring the the flattened cartilage. HA is one of the fluids that is also used by cells, but the obvious application is for back pain.

As mentioned, all people that I know of do not need to do spinal surgery caused by damage of the cartilage and can get it fully restored with just HA in a matter of 2 weeks and all pain is gone. However, a back pain may also be caused by muscle stiffness due to lack of magnesium as well as arthritis, which MSM does well in eliminating the arthritic neck pain and back pain. It takes about 1 week to reduce the severity of arthritic back pain by 50% in about 1-2 week. Further reduction is possible.

I have a man who is chairman who owns oil spill up technology was involved with motorcycle accident and had brain concussion. Taking HA larger dose such as 12 capful three times a day reduced his concussion pain within a matter of 30 minutes, with complete recovery from the concussion pain within the week. As for HA's effect as an anti-aging supplement, it might help restoring some wrinkles, but the best way to do this, for both men and women (we're talking about people who are 40 or over) is the progesterone cream, used only twice a week at 1/8 teaspoon, mixed with a small amount of HA. This will reduce the aging skin from both HA & Progesterone.

The basics of HA is simple: it hydrates the body's system. It also acts as a lubricant along the lungs to reduce asthma. When the lungs dries up, you get asthma and the HA lubricates the cellular tissues in the organ, thus restoring the lung's breathing capacity. Of course you still need to rid of fungus which causes asthma. As for the person with a severe neck arthritis, for 20 years, went 50% away within 1 week and completely away in about 3 weeks using MSM 2000 mg x 5 times a day plus B1 thiamine 200 to 400 mg a day (for numbness of extremities).

So James Coburn, the actor who mentioned about curing arthritis with MSM was correct in MSM curing the arthritis. The problem was dose/frequency issue that I have to find out, as well as compare its effectiveness against other arthritis supplements out there. As it turns out, MSM is the best supplement for arthritis, but not HA, which is more ideally suited for joint pain and spinal degeneration, even to the point that the person even WON'T NEED BACK SURGERY. The cartilage actually regenerates itself. So when people speak of hydration consider HA."

Hello! I am 39yrs woman. Recently diagnosed arthritis spine and DDD, with a 25% scoliosis thrown in for good measure. I am wondering how long to take Teds remedy of Seasalt, HA, water? How long is safe? I have been taking it for 3 days and seen significant pain improvement, but tonight (my 9th dose - 3 per day), my feet are swelling and I wonder if it is all the salt?

also is there any issue with taking it with food or other supplements at the same time, or should it be on an empty stomach?

Thank you! Much appreciated for any replies.
