    Hip Pain

    Primal Fuel
    Conventional wisdom of MD's say hip cartilage will not heal, regrow,, etc. I understand low carb high fat (good fat) will do the trick. Anybody out there with same mindset etc.?

    Once cartilage it's torn it's torn. Diet may help reduce inflammation and if pain is caused from that you'll get some relief

    ^Ditto. My knees started to be a problem in recent years and my mom said it was genetic. Since getting rid of grains, my knees don't hurt anymore and I can feel the weakness as a simple lack of strength rather than a pressure-like uncomfortable feeling or pin-like pain.

    Ditto on the knee pain(old soccer guy)...Cutting out the grains, sugars, etc... really helped. I also take bovine colostrum, and have had positive results.

    I started having hip pain 3 years ago. Here's what I did:

    Lost 38 #
    Tried glucosamine
    Ultrasound
    Water aerobics helped
    Steroid shots
    A ton of antiinflamatory drugs
    Vitamin d3
    Fish oil
    Krill oil
    Evening primrose
    Collagen
    A ton of other $upplements that did not help
    Low carb
    Primal
    Saw a chiropractor for a bunch of worthless sessions
    Saw a physical therapist for months
    Got reiki done on me
    Saw a sports medicine doctor
    Gave up on my family practitioner
    Switched to a rheumatologist
    Saw 5 surgeons

    Had hip replacement 2 month ago and am thrilled to have my life back!

    The one new thing I have learned that I would try is that Vitamin K2 is a critical element in the way the body forms bone and as best I can tell, cartilage too. I am incorporating K2 into my daily supplements in hopes of not having to lose another body part at the altar of CW.

    D3 cannot do its job without K2. If you have bone issues you need it in miliigram (mg) doses, not micrograms (mcg) which is commonly available. In Japan they use 45 mg a day for osteoporosis, I would treat cartilage issues the same. The only sources I have found for a higher dosage is Ultra K2 from lef.org. Carlson makes a 5 mg dose. For more info on K2 check this out http://mercola.fileburst.com/PDF/Exp...ipt-vitK21.pdf

    (if you decide to get a hip replacement PM me and I can save you a ton of research - there are hip replacements and then there's a better way. I'm glad I found the better way.)
