When inflamation occurs as a result of the nucleus pulposus that comes into contact with the spinal nerves vitamin C is necessary for the discs to repair and strengthen themselves because the inflamation depletes the bones of calcium and weakens them. Back muscles need collagen and elastin to repair themselves. Without vitamin C collagen and elastin cannot be made. Oxidative stress occurs once inflamation is present. This is called toxic overload. When the toxic overload travels through the body it causes pain and destruction by weakening good cells in the body. Vitamin C is needed to fight off the toxic overload that the oxidative stress creates and removes it from the body. This ultimately rids the body of the inflamation. If this does not occur one can develop osteoporosis due to fragile bones because the bones in the body do not have enough calcium due to inflamation and oxidative stress. Our bodies do not make vitamin C, so to get vitamin C into the body we need get it from what we eat, drink or by the use of vitamins or supplements.
Speaking of vitamin C is there a way to remedy a herniated disc by therapeutically treating the back with vitamin C? Yes. People use ice packs, hot compresses and other remedies to relieve constant back pain. But, these remedies do not assist in directly creating collagen and elastin; which is what the discs and the bones in the body need to remain strong and flexible. The Vitamin C patch is a patch that releases Vitamin C directly to the affected area once, once the patch is applied to it by placing it over the skin. Don't doubt this or think that this is something I should be drinking instead. People have used the nicotine patch for years to stop smoking. The direct application and penetration of the Vitamin C patch to the area where the herniated disc is located may provide some relief and along with pain management therapy will assist with making collagen and elastin to repair the herniated disc and begin to rid the herniated disc of the inflamation. The Vitamin C patch is easy to apply and can be worn for hours as it releases Vitamin C directly to the area of inflamation. This may reduce the need for surgery or painful injections to remove pain temporarily.
When one peel causes you to have a herniated disc-peel another to repair it, by using the Vitamin C patch!
