However, there are many alternative therapies that can help: http://www.Arthritistrust.Org/menu_list/articlesimportant.Html. ...Read more

Can IBS be cured through reiki therapy?

Reiki ok but OTC : Reiki may help, but metamucil works better if you are going to the bathroom too much. I know, i know, it sounds like it would make you worse, but it soaks up the excess water in the bowel, stopping urgent bouts of diarrhea! ...Read more

What is the most effective treatment for arthritis thus far? And are we any closer to finding a cure for auto immune diseases?

What is the most effective treatment for arthritis thus far? And are we any closer to finding a cure for auto immune diseases?

Yes: It depends on the type of arthritis. When i was in medical school in the 1970's, about one person in 150 would have their life ruined by autoimmune arthritis. The immunomodulators produced by biotechnology have greatly improved the outlook for severe disease and have proved surprisingly safe. It's still a rough and frustrating disease but progress continues. Stay proactive -- and good luck. ...Read more

New diagnosis of lower spine arthritis. I am 62 .Any treatment available beyond palliatives and pain relief? Can it be cured?

Pain in the back: I have degenerative disk disease myself. I find that the over the counter preparation called: osteo-bi-flex really helps, but it takes a month or two to kick in. It contains glucosamine, chondroitin and something called msm. Be sure and discuss with your physician and good luck to you. ...Read more

My grandaunt has severe knee and feet pain.She doesn't have arthritis but has osteoporosis.Is there a treatment and cure for it.She can hardly walk.

My grandaunt has severe knee and feet pain.She doesn't have arthritis but has  osteoporosis.Is there a treatment and cure for it.She can hardly walk.

See details: The pain she experiences is not related to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis only causes pain if there is a fracture involved. I would doubt an 81 year does not have some degree of arthritis. Have her see a rheumatologist. There is no cure for osteoporosis but there are very effective therapies. ...Read more

Full ortho eval: Initial radiographs would need to include weightbearing views: Bilateral standing AP, PA Rosenberg, full extension lateral and bilateral sunrise views. If any hint of poor alignment noted, then proceed with full hip-knee-ankle bilateral mechanical axis views to determine where weightbearing line from center of femoral head to ankle crosses at the knee joint. This will help determine if an osteotomy in such a young patient is indicated or should be considered. After imaging and a full examination for motion strength, and laxity, an MRI would help finalize any plans for potential surgery by delineating the degree of any cartilage or meniscal and ligamentous pathology. With history of hyperextension, a definite concern is whether posterolateral corner (LCL, popliteus and popliteofibular ligament) is also involved or injured/loose. ...Read more

Is there a difference between reiki and craniosacral therapy?

Is there a difference between reiki and craniosacral therapy?

Yes: Yes craniosacral therapy refers to the specific osteopathic technique of treating the skull plates with the application of gentle force of direct hand contact and muscle energy stretching, while reiki refers to the transference of "life force energy" by the laying on of hands by the practitioner either directly or having the hands in close proximity to the patient to transfer energy and well being. ...Read more

Is reiki therapy a good way to reduce my dependence on pain pills?

No: Reiki is nonsense. Its mostly helpful in thinning the wallet. It would be much better to see a physician experienced in pain management and medication detox. That stated, there are many scientifically valid non-pharmacologic behavioral strategies. A pain psychologist can help here. ...Read more
