Hi, I'm Debbie and I have Avascular Necrosis/Osteonecrosis, It's a rare disease/disorder where you have a temporary or permanent loss of blood supply to the bone.
I developed my avascular necrosis/osteonecrosis after I suffered a meniscal tear. I'm lucky and very grateful because the doctors don't feel it will go to any other joints . Others including small children are not so fortunate.
We need more research on so many levels and trials.
I love to learn.
I love to educate
I love to help people realize their is always hope.
I have started to go to a more plant-based diet to help the pain caused by inflammation.
However I still will eat meat once a week no more than 2x a week.
I also personally take supplements all ok'd by my PCP
Vitamin D varies from 2000 to 5000 iu a day based on lab results
CoQ10 400mg a day
CuraMed Curcumin 375mg my
Ortho had me start with 1 in a.m and 1 in p.m for the first week, then take 1 a day.
Krill Oil – Not Fish oil
I buy Antarctic Krill Oil Platinum by 1MD because it's top quality.
Krill and fish oil similarly contain EPA and DHA, but they differ in the way that the omegas are bonded. The omegas in krill oil are mostly bonded to phospholipids while in fish oil they are bonded to triglycerides. The fat cells in humans are also in phospholipid form. A study done on the metabolic effects of krill oil concluded that the omega-3s from krill oil may be more readily and effectively absorbed after ingestion and distribution into the bloodstream.
I have gone from eating food that really wasn't that healthy to eating mostly plants real food. To help my body by giving it the best nutrients possible.
I have to say my pain has decreased.
I will have a cheat day now and then.
But when you get used to eating good healthy food anything other than that just doesn't taste as good.
So I will be posting various recipes on my main blog and sometimes here as well , ones that I tried and loved as well as some information about myself and about Osteonecrosis aka Avascular Necrosis and a few other things
I Research a lot of things
Factor V Leiden Heterogeneous
Stem Cell and Prolotherapy
I love history and being outdoors
One thing I know I will do again someday is hike . Since diagnosed with Avn I haven't lived or hiked as much as I used to do to limitations because of bone problems.
I love learning and applying new things into my own life.
I truly believe we can help our pain and diminish symptoms and heal our own body most of the time if not all the time.
We just need the right tools and the know how.
