Is AS a reversible condition?

Thanks for your replies. Your reply about Ankylosing Spondilitis(AS) is bit depressing. It is said that all other tissues/cells except nerve tissues can be regenerated in any age than why this condition can not be reversed. If constitutional remedy can help for this purpose.

Hi Vijay,

I can understand your disappointment. We all want to have some magical wand called homeopathy! but alas!! Here is some information abt AS –

Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints. The sacroiliac joints are located in the low back where the sacrum (the bone directly above the tailbone) meets the iliac bones (bones on either side of the upper buttocks). Chronic inflammation in these areas causes pain and stiffness in and around the spine. Over time, chronic spinal inflammation (spondylitis) can lead to a complete cementing together (fusion) of the vertebrae, a process called ankylosis. Ankylosis causes total loss of mobility of the spine.

Ankylosing spondylitis is also a systemic rheumatic disease. Therefore, it can cause inflammation in other joints away from the spine, as well as other organs, such as the eyes, heart, lungs, and kidneys

AS is fully treatable only before the spinal fusion has occurred and advanced. After that we can only give partial relief to the patient even with the similimum. Here the question is not of tissue regeneration, it is unnatural calcification which results in lack of mobility of the spine.

Body has its own set of limitations. Muscles, Bones, Skin all can divide and grow but that does not mean that body will regenerate an amputated limb?? Some recent research has shown that even nerve cells can divide (just for information). But where the tissue changes are far advanced and beyond bodys ability to heal itself, we encounter a block.

Best wishes,
Dr. B
