In the beginning of this ordeal I tried everything I could to reverse the damage - collagen supps, MSM, Aloe, Vitamin C (I actually took lots of vitamin C and MSM anyway before and while this destruction infolded), L-Lysine, Organo Living Silica (a very expensive highly absorbable silica product), the very best diet, superfoods, herbs, green juices, sleeping up to 15 hrs. per day...nothing stopped the destruction. I started taking a good quality powdered colostrum a few months ago and it seemed to help slightly (it contains growth factors and is supposed to help reverse tissue aging). I might start taking it again when we get paid next week. Unfortunately, I have lost hope that there is a magic bullet for my collagen loss. I have had to accept the new me.
