View Full Version : Meniscus (small) Tear Inner Knee
02-14-2011, 11:05 PM
Yes, today was a day of doctor visits. I have a slight tear in my left inner meniscus, i have a knee brace, and that does indeed help keep my joint from 'popping' but are there any foods that are raw that might help heal this or assist with maintaing the cartlidge i currently have?
I was thinking almond milk, hemp smoothies; only because of the trace mineral; but am merely guessing that might help.
Please note I am in NO pain, and today saw a third doctor for my situation.
All 3 had different solutions, though they ALL said if i have no pain i shouldnt have an operation.
Thank you in advance :)

This ointment is incredible.....I have used it for healing all types of things for years and I have raised 4 children. It used to be called BF&C (bone, flesh & cartlidge) but it is now called Complete Tissue and Bone.....it's made by Christopher's original formulas. Get the ointment and use a good amount and rub it on 3 or more times a day. I have found that whatever I use it on heals twice as fast, if not faster. Good Luck.

I had a tear to my left our meniscus with the popping like you're describing. The doctors couldn't identify what it was though so I had it for over a year before it ripped into my knee joint so that I couldn't straiten my leg.
The best foods would be yellow onion and yellow zucchini. As a healing technique, just deeply feel the spot where you perceive the pain. Just feel it with your mind.
Best of luck to you!

I have had several knee surgeries 9 meniscus tears were the least of my worries) but I run regularly and have completed numerous marathons without additional knee problems.
Consume many of the following:
Onions and garlic
chia seeds ( dry and soaked /gelled)
turmeric ( great to add to sauces and as a topping / seasoning)
GREENS ( especially as smoothies)
vitamin c containing fruits and veggies

Interesting info. Not sure what is wrong with my knee but it only hurts when I kneel and got up and down or most of all up and down stairs. Its alot better now although have avoided doing both. I do have an appt with specialist just to find out what it is so I can address the problem but does anyone have any ideas? It seems to hurt in the front of the knee when it hurts. I guess deep down at my age I am worried that its something horribly serious :confused: I am not overweight and I walk daily and keep fit. anne

I have recently discovered tumeric. It is supposed to be wonderful for many things including inflammation in joints and for joint/arthritis pain. You will need to look for standardized 95% curcumin to be the most effective. I will buy it from Vitaglo.com at about $7/bottle for Soloray brand when I am ready to purchase. I have recommended it to my mother who is scheduled for surgery on 6 July for a torn meniscus. She was helping clear brush and limbs with a chainsaw crew after the tornados here in SE TN when she tore it. You go Mom! She has had lots of swelling but is able to do most things.
