What is the recommended borax dose to take a day for Dupuytren's disease?

Hello Martiele, I would use the borax recommendations to treat osteo-arthritis, using it both internally and by rubbing a borax paste into the contracted muscles. Ensure that iodine and magnesium levels are of good sufficiency as part of your treatment. See Grow Youthful's web pages on borax, magnesium and iodine. David

I started using borax 1/8 tsp in litre of water daily for arthritis. Noticed that the Dupuytren's contracture in my hand has greatly reduced, lumps are smaller and softer. So I googled Borax Dupuytren's contracture and and found that there is a connection. Very pleased.

Thank you for your report. I didn't take magnesium to heal my Dupuytren's just Borax. Now I keep on taking 1 gram every 2 weeks to reach the daily boron amount of Israel. If I don't take it, 2 months later I feel early symptoms in my palms. Borax makes them disappear again.

When I had a hair analysis I realized I had a severe Boron deficiency. I looked up in google Boron and Dupuytren and found your site as only one at that time recommending Boron as remedy. So I took Borax and I was amazed how everything got better... until to a point where it didn t help further. It looked like I lacked of something else. Since I was a vegetarian for a long time eating no fish, no eggs, no milk products, and I had intoxication with mercury I seemed not to be able to produce enough EPA and DHA out of the Omega 3s I was consuming. This was another major factor I discovered that improved the health of my hands. I hope this will help me to keep that curse of the hands away forever.

A couple of years ago during an annual check-up I mentioned to my doctor that I had some lumps in the palms of my hands. He diagnosed them as Dupuytren's disease. "They are not serious and there is nothing you can do", he said. A few months after that I started using magnesium oil for good energy and health and to prevent muscular-skeletal aches and pains. I've also been using borax, also for good health and to prevent arthritis. Well I completely forgot about the Dupuytren's and a few more months went by. One day when I was looking at my palms, I realised that the Dupuytren's had gone - completely. I think the magnesium oil was mainly responsible, as I was using it a couple of times a week and rubbing it all over my body with my hands - so the palms were getting a good dose. But I have also been taking the Grow Youthful recommended maintenance dose of borax twice a day, for a few years. No signs of muscular-skeletal aches and pains or arthritis either. I'm 60 years old.
