    Hi. OK, I have a degenerated disk at L4-L5
    which has herniated once or twice a year for the last 10 years. In this forum there is no
    need to describe the pain - we all know what
    it is.
    Now - there is a special type of traction known as VAX-D which is supposed to separate
    the vertebrae just enough to allow the body
    to form new disk material in the new spece.
    Doctors who offer it claim it works, others
    say it's nonsense. Does anybody in this forum have a positive experience of VAX-D,
    especially in the long term?
    And has anybody had good results by taking
    collagen type I and III supplementation. It could bypass a genetic weakness in some of us back pain sufferers. In our case, the disk collagen made by our own bodies is TOO SOFT, so that it bulges out and herniates.
    We might also take a glutamine supplement,
    because at least one of our two disk collagen-making gene copies inserts tryptophan into the disk collagen when it
    should be inserting glutamine.
    This mechanism of disk degeneration has
    emerged from recent genetic studies which are out there on the Web. The supplements
    are my idea, and I welcome anybody's opinions and/or results after trying them.
    I pray that these modalities work for some of you. At least we'll all get a better idea
    if we hear about actual results from those who have tried them.
