Hello Binika,

Here are the daily changes you can make in your daily life for the treatment of cervical spondylosis.

• Daily physical activity is crucial for people with this disease and can reduce pain and improves mobility and posture and help you maintain your flexibility, exercising can help you achieve a healthy weight.

• Practising good posture can help prevent spinal fusion in a stooped or deformed position. Not everyone will have a fusion in the spine, but practicing good posture can help keep your spine in a place that looks and feels better. Posture exercises should be practiced daily to have the best impact on your spine’s symptoms.

• Massage can help you achieve that perfect mobility despite your disease. Coconut oil is really helpful, you can mix it with lavender oil.  

NUTRITION: Things you need to add and avoid in your diet

• Include calcium-rich food and increase vitamin D intake to support bone health.

• Practice a diet that is rich in fruits, raw vegetables, and whole grains.

• Limit fats, animal products, processed or mixed foods, and try to drink eight to 10 glasses of water each day.

A diet that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which may decrease the disease activity in people with cervical spondylitis.

Mentally what you need:

  • Practice mindful meditation.
  • Deal with your stress.
  • Allow positivity to be part of your life.

These things will surely help you in cervical spondylosis. Thank you

My mom had a similar issue which she absolutely reversed via lifestyle change and exercises. She got it when she was quite stressed and hardpressed for a time as a teacher and had long-standing hrs. and hand usage writing on boards. So good news is this can heal brilliantly.

Lifestyle changes combined with the right food and exercises only work. People have also healed from slip discs.

Please remember that you may have got injured as a child and those bones may be weak too. You can’t blame your lifestyle issues on a weak bone. Yes, to balance the acidic body environment, blood can choose to target that area to leach calcium.

With animal products like dairy, meat, eggs, and fish in your meals, acidity in the body increases and the body will suck all the alkaline enzymes to maintain homeostasis.

If high acidic foods ( not coming under category of fruits, vegetables, and veggie greens majorly) are ingested, their pH. is less than normal, the stomach does not need to make it acidic to process. The pancreas won’t produce the alkaline buffers to the blood to neutralize the acidity raised by the stomach. So this acidic food in its state reaches the next few levels like the duodenum which are not geared for this pH. level and bile from the liver and gallbladder are called to rescue this balance. As this bile continues to be overproduced, the liver becomes tired. If the liver and gallbladder are not in good working condition, enough bile is not made available in the duodenum, and this is how acidic food reaches the intestines. As the liver weakens, the body cleaning is also compromised and blood continues to carry acidic toxins that the liver could not manage and have reached the intestines where nutrients get absorbed. As a result acidity in the blood goes up, the blood first uses of the alkaline buffers present in its blood plasma to bring the blood closer to an alkaline pH. Unfortunately because of the continuous supply of acidic foods to the body, the level of alkaline buffers is often very low. If the blood pH value falls below this range, then all the bodily fluids such as urine, lymphatic fluid, semen, Cerebrospinal fluids, saliva everything starts becoming acidic. This disrupts all the cellular functions in the body and disturbs the balance. To prevent such a state of decline, the blood starts reducing its acidity by neutralizing it with one of the most alkaline substances in the body that is calcium from the bones. So blood starts dissolving the calcium from the bones in its self to reach an ideal pH. level. This is also called leaching of calcium. Blood is a supplier and also a retriever. It will choose parts of the bone where it can leach very quickly such as the ends of the bones. As it continues to do so, that part of the joint weakens and produces pain and inflammation. There will also be severe obstruction of blood flow, the viscosity of blood will be thicker. All these factors lead to the accumulation of toxins across the body.

You just need a proper food regime majorly, Binika
