The toe raises are just totally impossible though. It's as much as I can do to get him to raise a leg a few inches off the bed, with me helping and supporting, and attempt to flex the knee, move the leg a little from side to side, and maybe rotate the ankle and wriggle the toes a little, but that seems to be getting beyond his comprehension these days.

That sounds interesting Rob, might be good for other things, is it hot on the skin?
And how do you make it exactly?
I fixed my stiff hips (condition just starting to appear, same condition had my mother hobbling in her fifties) by adding MSM and Vit C crystals to my Kombucha every morning - poof all gone. The Kombucha is also very acidic, which promotes alkalinity internally and helps the situation heal.
MSM has been used over and over for the relief of pain, head trauma, interstitial cystitis, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis and Alzheimer's disease. MSM makes the cell walls flexible and elastic. If the concentration of MSM in the body is too low, the new cells lose some of their necessary flexibility and elasticity. MSM makes cell walls permeable, allowing water and nutrients to freely flow into cells and allowing wastes and toxins to properly flow out. MSM is a powerful detoxifier. MSM is also nontoxic.
MSM is also called organic sulfur. MSM the sulfur compound is a nutrient found in the human diet and the natural diets of virtually all other vertebrates. MSM is part of the amino acid chain and without the proper amount of MSM in our bodies, the amino acids will continue to build the glands, but fail to produce the correct enzymes, making us prone to unnecessary illness. MSM is the flexible bond between proteins. When a cell dies, a new cell takes its place. Without the needed amount of MSM, it attaches but becomes rigid. When body tissues lose their flexibility, problems develop with the lungs and other parts of the body.
MSM stands for Methylsulfonylmethane, a stable odorless metabolite of DMSO. MSM cleans the blood. MSM is less toxic than water. In its purified form, it is an odorless white crystal with a slightly bitter taste and looks very much like table sugar.
Hello Burra. What I should have said is try increasing the animal but decrease the carbs (grain products and other sugars and starches). You also mentioned the fungal infections. Reducing carbs can also really help with reducing or even eliminating fungal infections.
