A reader writes: Do you have a natural means of healing a broken foot, or at least helping the process along? It’s the Sesamoid bone of the left foot.
There are 2 sesamoid bones under the farthest part of the long bone of the foot’s big toe. When strained or fractured, the sesamoid bones can cause pain in the first joint of the big toe. It is important to realize that bone is live tissue. It requires time and remodeling to heal. Because it is hard to protect the fracture of the sesamoid bones with walking or running, it is easy to reinjure the damaged bones every day. They need time to heal. In addition to rest, the following ideas are useful:
1. Do not use NSAID anti-inflammatory medications. They retard healing in all joints.
2.Use safer anti-inflammatory supplements like MSM,
- and quercetin
3. Frequencies that accelerate bone repair are found in frequency generators like the FSM machine.
4. Redox signaling molecules are part of the communication network that facilitates healing. They can be found in ASEA, which can be taken by mouth, and Renu28 gel, which can be placed directly on the skin around the fracture (Please contact my office at 801-302-5397 if you would like to learn more about this).
5. Try to identify the movement that caused the initial fracture and initiate change to reduce the chance of it happening again. Changes may include using different shoes, strengthening muscle groups to add support, or releasing tight muscles that put more strain on that part of the foot.
