There are at least three traditional bodybuilding drugs or supplements that ought to be used routinely in clinical settings to treat various conditions or maladies:
- Nandrolone (deca durabolin)
- Growth Hormone
Nandroloe should also receive strong consideration to serve as an adjunct to testosterone in hormone replacement therapy as it has restorative effects on joints and has far fewer effects on hair loss and prostate growth than that of the various testosterone esters.
The second, growth hormone, should be used routinely to hasten the recovery of muscle, tendon, or bone injuries. Athletes who ruptured tendons or who underwent Tommy John surgery might be back in action in half the time.
Average folk who suffer orthopedic injuries could get back to work a lot quicker and stop the financial drain. Growth hormone could also be used to help burn patients heal more quickly.
Lastly, creatine should be used or at least considered in the treatment of a whole host of diseases ranging from spinal cord injuries to cardiopulmonary disease.
The first two drugs have a steep hill to climb. Too much stigma. Too much disinformation. Creatine, however, is relatively free of infamy and as such might still be adopted as a treatment for various diseases or conditions.
That, at least, is the contention of a team of scientists from the University of Central Florida that reviewed the body of literature on the supplement's possible role in treating muscle wasting from immobilization, injury, neurodegenerative disease, cardiopulmonary disease, and other muscular disorders.
