Natural Remedies For Over 200 Illnesses

Paget’s Disease

Overview

A condition where the normal cycle of bone renewal and repair is disrupted, Paget’s disease results in bone pain. In some cases, the disease can cause the affected bone (or bones) to become weakened or deformed.

After osteoporosis, Paget’s disease is the second most common type of bone disease, but it’s rare amongst ethnic groups, such as Asians and Africans.

An age-related condition, it’s estimated that 1-2% of white adults aged over 55 have the condition, rising to around 7% for white people over 80 years old.

Named after the English surgeon – James Paget – who first described its symptoms in 1877, Paget’s disease is often referred to as Paget’s disease of the bone. This is because Paget also lent his name to Paget’s disease of the nipple (a rare type of breast cancer) and Paget’s disease of the penis (another rare type of cancer).

Paget’s disease most commonly affects the pelvis or spine and it is usually worse when lying down. However, it’s worth noting that in a lot of cases Paget’s disease does not cause any noticeable symptoms, and it is only diagnosed during tests for an unrelated medical condition or when an affected bone is fractured.

One of the most common symptoms associated with Paget’s disease is pain in the bones, which has been described as a dull, constant, ‘boring’ sensation deep within the affected part of the body.

As the disease progresses, patients may experience deformities in the affected bones, such as twisted or misshaped limbs or scoliosis (curvature of the spine). Affected bones can sometimes fracture (break), particular the longer bones in your arms and legs.

If the patient has fractured bones symptoms may include pain and swelling in the affected area, bruising or discoloured skin around the bone or joint, and the limb or body part being bent at an unusual angle (angulation).

Depending on which bones are affected by the condition, Paget’s disease can cause any of the symptoms below:

The skull

If Paget’s disease develops inside the bones of your skull it can cause the following symptoms:

  • Hearing loss – which can be total or partial
  • Vertigo – feeling dizzy or the sensation that you’re moving when standing still
  • Headaches
  • Tinnitus – a constant buzzing or ringing noise in your ears

The joints

Abnormal bone growth can cause damage to nearby cartilage, which can lead to progressive joint damage, known as osteoarthritis.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis include:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness – which is worse when you wake up in the morning, but usually improves      within about 30 minutes of starting to move
  • Difficulty moving your affected joints

The nerves

Many of the major nerves in your body run through, or alongside, your bones. Abnormal bone growth can result in a bone compressing (squeezing), ‘pinching’ or damaging a nerve.

Depending on where the affected nerve is and its main purpose, this can lead to a wide range of symptoms. Possible symptoms affecting the nerves (neurological symptoms) include:

  • Pain that travels from the base of the spine down into the legs (sciatica)
  • Pain that travels from the neck into the arms and chest (cervical radiculopathy)
  • Numbness or tingling in the affected limbs
  • Partial loss of movement in the limbs
  • Loss of balance
  • Bowel incontinence or urinary incontinence (the loss of bowel or bladder control)

It is not known what causes Paget’s disease. Recently, certain genes have been associated with Paget’s disease, including the Sequestrosome 1 gene on chromosome 5. Virus infection may be necessary to trigger Paget’s disease in people who have inherited the genetic tendency to develop the condition by having these genes.

Visit a health practitioner if you have persistent bone pain, if you notice deformities in your bones or if you experience any neurological symptoms, such as numbness or tingling.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here.

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health protocols

Detoxification Therapy:

Hydrotherapy:

Pain management for Paget’s disease might include physical therapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, or orthotics (such as canes or shoe lifts).

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water.
  • Take a bath as often as possible up to once a day with two litres of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

Exercise:

Yoga – The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

QigongIs a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
