is a condition sort of along the same lines as Peyronie's disease, except in this case, the thickened tissue occurs along one of the tendons in the palm of the hand, pulling the connected finger down. If it progresses far enough, sometimes it's impossible to straighten the finger out at all. Rubbing SSKI into the affected tissue of the palm at least twice a day can “loosen” it and prevent the condition from progressing to the point of causing a deformity or disability.
In Dupuytren's contacture and Peyronie's disease, it's also helpful to apply a mixture of vitamin E and DMSO, along with the SSKI, to the thickened tissue. You may also want to take 2 grams of para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) three times a day. And last but not least, you should also have a glucose-insulin tolerance test done: There's an unusually high incidence of insulin resistance in people with these conditions. (For more on insulin resistance, please see the July and August 2001 issues of Nutrition & Healing.\)
This loosening of thickened tissue also works for scars, especially
