Welcome to HW, we are not Dr's but a group of wonderful people with CP. We share our stories, support and suggestions with each other.
Noni juice and juices in general, do supply nutrients. I have tried most everything on the Market in an effort to reduce pain. In my experience a herniated disc will not be fixed by Noni juice! I have found supplements that make the pain more bearable but do not take it away completely.
There are many alternative methods that may help acupuncture, Prolotherapy, cold laser treatments. Everyone's situation is different, what may work for one may not work for the other.
I feel safe in saying that all of us on HW have fought going on Narcotics! I know personally it is not what I want to do but my situation has improved by the Medication regimen prescribed by my Pain Management Dr.
Has she been evaluated by a Pain Management Dr.? A Neurosurgeon? A herniated disc is indeed very painful and debilitating!
Please educate yourself and find a Dr. who can direct a program that will help your wife's situation.
Best of luck,
Hello Husband..and welcome to the fold. We all have some knowledge about CP, mostly due to our own experiences, but your wife seeing a real Pain Dr. sounds like what she needs...not someones assistant. That urks me, she needs to have the full attention of a specialist...not a lacky.
You are a great person to care so much about your wife...she's lucky to have you. But please don't rely on Chiropractors...I say that because I had bad experiences with one. And suppliments won't "Fix" the problem...
Once she sees a specialist I think you will have an easier time with the pain...
I have been a spectator for so long..Now it's time to participate.......
