Starvation in diseases of the musculoskeletal system
Indications for fasting:
osteochondrosis of the spine of varying degrees of severity;
- Bekhterev's disease;
- arthritis, polyarthritis of various etiologies;
- consequences of traumatic injuries of the musculoskeletal system;
- heel spur"
Bones, ligaments, muscles - this is the frame of our body, which is responsible for the preservation of internal organs, and for the movement of the body in space. The state of this skeleton directly affects our general condition and it is possible to judge the state of human health as a whole from it. The causes of diseases of the musculoskeletal system are diverse. This is a sedentary lifestyle, and improper diet, and excessive stress, and trauma, and hypothermia, etc. But all these various causes of the disease lead to approximately the same consequences: the deterioration of blood supply to muscles, ligaments, their dystrophic changes in muscles and tendons, salt deposits, joint stiffness, inflammation and, as a result, pains of different localization and movement restrictions in a certain area. Drug treatment, most often, is aimed only at relieving the pain symptom and inflammation, but in no way improves the function of the damaged area and the onset of recovery. And although appeared drugs, which help the regeneration of cartilaginous tissue, starvation efficiency in diseases of musculoskeletal diseases is noted by all practitioners for medical starvation. This is due to the fact that only fasting can affect the whole organism, on its every cell. Such a complex effect leads to a rapid improvement in the performance of the musculoskeletal system, the disappearance of pain, stiffness of the joints. Already from the first days of fasting, there is a significant reduction in pain in osteochondrosis of the spine, arthritis of various etiologies. With weekly fasting, there is a significant improvement in the performance of the entire musculoskeletal system. Increased mobility in all joints, almost completely disappearing pain when moving in the spine. There is an opportunity to sleep peacefully lying on the stomach, which in most people after forty years is absolutely impossible because of the numbness of the hands. Naturally, in order to achieve good results in long-term chronic diseases of the spine and joints, which occur with significant changes in tissues and deformities, longer periods of fasting are needed.
Fasting osteochondrosis of a backbone of various localization, arthritis, polyarthritis of various etiology, Bekhterev's disease is well treated.
S. Nikolaev notes that: "During the RDT, there was a significant improvement in the well-being of all patients with metabolic and rheumatoid polyarthritis: the pain disappeared, the volume of movements in the joints increased. In the recovery period, some patients experienced an exacerbation of the disease, but after completing the entire course of RDT again there was relief.If in some cases, patients returned to receive maintenance drugs, then in a much smaller dose.In almost all patients with osteochondrosis, the pain sharply decreased, they increased The long-term results are good.
Bechterew's disease is often referred to as a group of rheumatoid diseases. In the beginning, inflammation arises in the articulations of the spine, and then mobility is lost, the ligaments and joint bags are ossified. The spine gradually takes the form of a "bamboo stick". We received patients with chronic course of Bekhterev's disease, with a long-standing illness, who unsuccessfully tried all the methods of treatment, including massive courses of antibiotics and hormonal drugs.
Improvement of the condition as a result of RTD was always, but the stability of the results depended on the subsequent dietary regime and the way of life of the patient. It should be noted that, as a rule, one course can bring a more or less prolonged remission (improvement), and then the disease resumes, and in order to achieve a lasting result, several courses must be conducted.
All patients treated in our clinic due to joint disease had a disability of groups II and III, some of them could not even serve themselves. Age ranges from 25 to 70 years. Duration of the disease - from 2 to 18 years. Previously, they all lay from 3 to 5 times in somatic hospitals, where they were treated with all available means. The course of fasting lasted from 18 to 25 days. Usually, improvement was observed in the second and third stages of fasting - pains in joints decreased, mobility increased, swelling subsided. Simultaneously, the patients also improved their mental state, heavy thoughts related to the disease, disappeared, and a sleep settled.
Improvement of patients with infectious nonspecific deforming polyarthritis, apparently, is caused by normalization of metabolic processes and weakening of the allergic factor under the influence of unloading and dietary therapy. Of great importance is also the fact that during starvation the organism is freed from the deposition of salts and other metabolic wastes.
Much more difficult is the case with the treatment of rheumatic polyarthritis. Here, a severe streptococcal infection affects both joints and heart valves simultaneously. The source of infection nests in tonsils or other foci. But in these cases fasting is very useful.
The high effectiveness of fasting treatment with the so-called "exchange" polyarthritis, expressed in the deposition of uric acid salts, are various "thorns" and "spurs" on the joint surfaces. Here the improvement of the state comes very quickly, especially if the disease was not started. "
Thus, fasting with its general effect on the entire body is an effective and recognized means, both in the fight against diseases of the musculoskeletal system, and in the prevention of the development of musculoskeletal pathology.
