Hi every1 i have been having neck problems v ery severely lately. i have osteoarthritis just about everywhere and scans show cervical damage due to crumbling bone and connective tissues and missing discs which the doctor says is probably due to diabetes which is ironic as i have kept sugar levels down due to the keto diet for around six months now and lost around 40 pounds so far, but i am unable to walk far. the diagnosis from neck scan is cervical spondylosis. i remember JH saying in one of his books that mms cant heal bones but i am wondering if it will help connective tissue, discs etc. or if anyone has tried something else that helped. thanx
I was diagnosed with Spondylosis 6 months ago. I've recovered slowly over the last half a year. Here is what I've learned.
First of all your situation sounds way worse than mine so you need to go slowly and do what you can. If its painful don't do it...
EDIT: BIGGEST one is WATER, your disc are all made of water if your dehydrated you will never recover. Your disc absorb the most water when you wake up. What I do is I wake up right away get a 2L jug of water, put a small spoon of tumeric and cinnamon into the water and drink that. Drink tons of water over the day and make sure you got a good filter so you have clean water like berkley filter or Alexapure Pro.
You need Vitamin D, K and Calcium to strength your bones they all work together. A small piece of chicken each day or other forms for phosphorus also.
Next Posture is a big one you need to strength your neck, upper back, romboids, core and glutes. Imagine your body is a table and you neck sits on top of this. If the table is off balance so is the neck. Forward head posture is the main reason for cervical degeneration. ( I don't know if this applies to you, you need to look at your own posture)
This is a really big subject I suggest look at a lot of youtube videos:
One of the best exercises is just laying on your belly lifting your head 1cm of the ground while doing a double chin also squeeze your shoulder blades at the same time.
Cervical pillow is another thing... but beware I had a lot more pain when using a cervical pillow trying to restore the nature curve to my neck. Because your neck has been curving the wrong way for so long you need to correct very slowly. You can roll up a towel and put it under your neck when you lie down. Slowly over months roll it larger and larger...
Recently I've been taking MMS I feel like its helped as I am almost pain free, I think it relieves the inflamation taking pressure off nerves...
Edit: Also I drink pineapple, mint, ginger in a blender a lot seems to help...
There is no miracle cure for this, you need to realign your skeletal structure by strengthing your muscles and eating well. The healing process is really is really slow so be patient some days are worse some days are better...

Jeff whats was your job and daily activities? Were you sitting a lot? Looking down a lot?
You have to identify how all the damage was caused to your neck and remove that from your lifestyle.
C5-C6 is generally takes all the weight when you have forward head posture, which I did. For me it was using computer to much so I made a laying down desk.
Yes if lying down gives you comfort it means when your standing up(bad posture) is compressing the front of your disc making the herniation pop out on the back of the disc.
Also since disc do not get blood supply once your a adult the only way they get nourishment is through movement.
If you can start with simple head nods each day remember ears always over shoulders, sternum slightly up, check pelvic tilt and core engaged , I don't recommend twist your neck till it's got a lot better.
Just move it very slowly within your range of motion as it gets better find more exercises on youtube.
