Before we get into how to treat/heal scar tissue, it’s best if you have a really good understanding of what scar tissue is composed of, the different forms it can take in the body, and how it behaves.
In the video below, I ask Mary Cox (physiotherapist) from ClearPassage.com these questions and she gives us a fascinating, illustrated explanation of all these different components.
In the video, we focus on scar tissue in the abdominal cavity, but the same principles are applicable whether your scar tissue is in your hip joint, knee, or anywhere else in your body.
In addition to the physical therapy treatments for scar tissue (adhesions) given in the video, we have also been experimenting with some powerful substances that also soften and (over time) dissolve scar tissue.
These are also treatments that you can do yourself, at home. And if you use them in conjunction with physical therapy, or laser therapy, your results will be even faster:
If you have Intestinal Stricture, click here for the treatment protocol.*
If you have a Rectal Stricture, click here for the treatment protocol.*
Here is an easier tried and tested (by my readers) procedure you can use for abdominal strictures and adhesions that has worked for many to relieve pain and release an obstruction. It also works equally well for other areas of the body (back, hips, knees, etc.). Most people report substantial relief in 24 hours. Simple injuries like acute muscle strains can be healed in 3-4 days (using once or twice per day). Longstanding problems like scar tissue that is several years old may take up to 4-6 months.* And newer scar tissue may be softened or dissolved in only 2 months (of once per day application).*
*NOTE: These treatments are not tested, nor approved by the FDA or any medical body. You proceed entirely at your own risk
If your scar tissue does not involve your digestive system, then skip Step 1 of this protocol.
1. Go On A Liquid Diet
Ideally and for fastest healing of intestinal strictures or obstruction, you should go on an exclusively elemental diet (which results in only liquid, minimal fecal matter) at least until the obstruction clears, and ideally for an additional week after clearance. If you can’t afford this, there are two other forms of liquid nutrition that may work for you, or you can combine these options in a way that works for you:
a) Raw vegetable juicing – juice primarily vegetables, with only enough fruit added to make them palatable (or sweeten with stevia instead). BUT, people with active/bleeding Crohn’s or colitis often cannot tolerate raw vegetable juices, so be sure and test carefully and if you’re at all underweight, this is not a good option
b) Raw (unpasteurized) cow or goat milk – from pasture-fed animals only (not barn-raised and grain-fed). Goat milk is usually better tolerated than cow milk, but make sure milk is RAW. Raw camel’s milk is also usually better tolerated than raw cow’s milk. Never consume pasteurized milk as it will only exacerbate your condition. If you tend to constipation, then you will also need to add extra magnesium citrate to your raw milk (1-3x/day up to 1000 mg/day maxi
