GELATINE can be made easily in the home from chicken bones and used to rebuild aging hyaline cartilage in your joints.
What is gelatine? See these three gelatine chains made of amino acids, pink, red and blue, linked together?
Gelatin is the gel derived from the protein collagen found inside animal and bones and cartilage. It is a protein, though not a complete protein. It lacks certain essential amino acids like tryptophan and methionine, so you can’t survive on gelatine as your only protein source.
However it is the main protein used by your body to make the
cartilage that covers the bones in your joints. Hence gelatine powder for arthritis.
A prime subject for discussion at chiropractic help: Unhealthy cartilage equals pain.
Gelatine is a hydrolyzed form of collagen. What does that mean? Individual collagen fibres in the body are bound together by chemical bonds to make up cartilage and other tissues, like skin, in the body. In the preparation of gelatine it is these crosslinks that must be first be broken down by hydrolysis. It can be easily done in the home, forming a semi solid colloid gel: Gelatin.
Suffering from joint pain? Gelatine powder for arthritis may be part of the solution. And of course, whether in powder form, sheets, or your own homemade chicken bones bouillon.
The beauty of gelatine in the body is that it binds water making it the
perfect material for building healthy hyaline cartilage, in fact all
cartilage. The first sign of degenerating cartilage is the loss of this
water. On an MRI the degenerate cartilage looks dark as it loses water, the disc space narrows and then the disc bulges...
You can also see how the water may seep into the bone,called a Modic effect, or modic change, which is the sign of deep bone pain. This cannot be seen by your chiropractor, unless he has a scan; it's not visible on ordinary plain xrays; and may explain why your back is still aching long after the joint subluxations have been corrected.
As the normal movement in the joint is restored, gradually this water that has seeped into the bone finds it's way back into normal circulation.
Gelatine powder has also been claimed to promote general joint health. One study for example found that gelatin relieved knee joint pain and stiffness in athletes.
What is not well understood is why gelatine powder, the foundation of cartilage, should relieve arthritic pain. Once in the stomach, gelatine powder is broken down into its constituent amino acids, and then reformulated into the protein of hyaline cartilage in the bones. Never mind, just accept that it works!
Healthy cartilage also requires a low omega 6 to omega 3 ration. Less seed oils, more olive oil, more fish or flax seed.
For an ulcer
Several researchers found that gelatin reinforces the stomach mucous lining. It has been found to reduce the damage to the stomach wall by alcohol and stress, halving the size of ulcers.
Instead of buying your Gelatine Powder for soups and stews ... make your own gelatine at home. It's dead easy. Gelatine from CHICKEN BONES ...
Personal medical insurance
It's all about first stepping up to life on a healthier plane, living differently. Going without personal medical insurance is a major step in life and certainly not for all. Follow the rules of good health, and there's a 90% chance you'll score big. Save those premiums diligently and within ten years you'll be a millionaire.
But can you handle the fact that it can all go wrong? Personal Medical Insurance ...
Can you simply regularly eat a chicken bones bouillon and expect to safely drop your insurance? Obviously not. Good health is about a number of important habits. Each one you add, the greater the chance of improving your health.
Here's my little list of good habits. I'm sure you can add to it.
Search this site function enables you to find stuff on this site.
Google has gone through an enormous shakeup in the last year, giving webmasters much grief. It's meant inter alia a huge amount of work removing links, capital letters, bold, italics, inverted commas, hyphens, and much else. The result is very little new creative writing whilst we bow before google's wishes.
In the long run it may mean a better web experience for you, though it's being done with advertisers in mind. Meantime, use the search function near the top of the left column to find more information about subject material mentioned on the page, where links have probably been removed.

Interesting challenges of the day
1. Mr B has the trophy for the most acute neck in February. He has quite advanced lower neck arthritis for a forty year old, thanks to a severe fall on the head from a trampoline. But this is upper cervical pain. Right rotation is simply impossible. Luckily he is improving rapidly, eighty percent better he says after three treatments. See cervical facet syndrome.
2. Mrs C is a new patient with a long history of lower back pain, hip pain and pain in both feet. We'll see how we get on, Rome wasn't built in a day.
3. Miss U sprained her ankle two months ago, wearing high heels. She still has severe mid foot pain. Xrays and perhaps a CT scan.
4. Mr V is 86 years old and hurt his back helping his wife into the car. Just one treatment of the sacroiliac joint and he's eighty percent better. It's not always like that.
5. Mr W lay on his back knocking down a pillar. Turning his head causes severe vertigo. He needs the Epley exercises, not pills, research shows. Update, he's fine.
6. Mrs X, a young mother has severe lower back pain, with numbness down the posterior thigh, calf and side of foot. It started after a long drive in the car. Update, she's forty percent less painful after four treatments, but the leg is still numb. Update two; she 60% better, but it's slow and is going to take the full 6 weeks to heal. Further update; a setback, after lifting her child she now has leg pain. It's going to the be difficult.
7. Mrs Y, a 70 year old woman is on maintenance care fo a nasty lumbar stenosis despite having to do everything at home. Her husband has a hospital acquired infection in the shoulder. After 4 operations he is incapacitated and going rapidly down hill.
8. Mrs Z, an 78 year old woman is doing remarkably well with a bad sciatica. But at over 200 lbs she is not losing weight, in fact gaining despite my suggestions. She's high risk for a stroke. Referral to a dietician to crack the whip.
9. Mr A, a 73 year old engineer, still working, is doing fine after a long episode of lower back pain. Some pain on the side of the hip remains after five treatments. Reassured him it's not hip arthritis.
10. Mrs B, a 64 year old woman has had Scheuermanns disease; it's left with a spinal kyphosis and chronic middorsal pain. She responds well to chiropractic treatment, provides she come every six weeks or so for treatment.
11. Mr C, a young engineer fell off his mountain bike injuring his cervical spine and pelvis. Luckily both responded very quickly to a few chiropractic adjustments. Update: his neck is sore again. It all goes back to a whiplash injury ten years ago when he was rammed by a fully laden truck carrying a load of stone. Time for Xrays.
12. Mrs D, a middle aged woman with hip pain of one year duration, despite other treatment. Xrays reveal an impingement syndrome and early hip arthritis. There's much to be done.
13. Both Mrs E and I can't believe how much better her lower back and leg pain are. Surgery for a scoliosis and spondylolysthesis three years ago helped greatly for one year. But then her leg went lame and weak. He was responded extremely well despite all expectations.
And so the day goes. Chiropractors shouldn't be treating the elderly? Bunkum.
Have a problem that's not getting better? Looking for a different slant on your pain? Want to pose a question?
Greetings, Dr B.
You helped me quite some time back with a soothing and professional
response which turned out to be exactly correct. I now consult a local chiropractor.
You write a superb newsletter, too.
Your own unresolved problem. Pose a question
Knowing that up to 70% of the time the correct diagnosis is made with no examination, no special tests, no xrays, but just from the history, there's a fair chance I can add some insight to your unresolved problem. But at least 30% of the time, I may be quite wrong! Give plenty of detail if you want a sensible reply.
You visited this chiropractic help site no doubt because you have a problem that is not resolving and want to know more about what chiropractors do.
The quickest and most interesting way is to read one of my ebooks of anecdotes. Described by a reader as gems, both funny and healthful, from the life and work of a chiropractor, you'll love them. Priced right at $2.99, though Kindle fiddles the price without telling me.
