Beat Neuropathy Before It’s Too Late

How would you like to say, “I beat neuropathy?”

If you suffer with neuropathy and have for any length of time, you understand pain and suffering on some level. Depending on the type of neuropathy (there are many), the progression, effect, and damage are variable. Likewise, what is not variable is, nerve pain hurts. Another common feature of all neuropathy is, if nothing is done to treat the root cause and sustain improvement, the neuropathy gets worse.

Lets make The Most Accurate Diagnosis. First!

Lets Make The Most Accurate Diagnosis First. We have been teaching patients and professionals this for many years. Here is one example why.

Recently, I had the opportunity to read an article written about pain & neuropathy treatment. This article was written directly for  patients.

Now maybe you even saw this yourself. It has been widely publicized as a “neuropathy treatment solution” in a bottle.

As I read through the article I couldn’t help but think of the patients I’ve seen in my clinic that have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, or another named condition when in fact they have also have another serious underlying health problem.

Unfortunately, this is not at all uncommon. I recently had this discussion with another doctor who repeated the same thing to me.

The fact of the matter is not every patient with a diagnosis or cause of their pain has had it fully explored and when possible confirmed. Far too often, the problem turns out to be something different than what they believed.

Treating patients with pain and neuropathy requires great skill, with much time dedicated to proper assessment and evaluation.

So often, pain, including peripheral neuropathy accompanies other medical conditions. Unless your Doctors are thorough, you can spend months and sometimes years chasing the wrong thing! This is happening more and more with all the Social Media “cures” and practices being promoted.

And that is why it is very important before beginning any extended program of care, it is crucial to most accurately understand what may be causing your symptoms.

Too often, patients with peripheral neuropathy have impaired sensation, and judgment affected by medication. This is one of the things that make self-treatment and home care without supervision potentially dangerous.

Be aware, there are also drug/diet supplement interactions, which can be potentially dangerous. A common one is Coumadin and Co Q10. Then there is the potential interaction with acetyl l Carnitine with thyroid, HIV and many chemotherapy drugs.

Choose your Doctor carefully. Stay away from fads, quick fixes or “magic treatment” pills or supplements.

When in doubt seek out our help before engaging any any questionable treatment. You can Call us anytime @ 781-659-7989.

Alternative Care Cautions

Make no mistake about it. Distrust in conventional health care is at an all time high. And so must be alternative care cautions. The reasons for this are many, but perhaps the biggest fuel for dissent is that anyone with little skill and just a few resources can put up a page, website and appear very convincing, But just because someone presents an alternative to pharmaceuticals or even surgeries doesn’t mean its true.

Claims about health care these days are everywhere. This new diet fad, the latest treatment system for neuropathy, disease club memberships, essential oils fix every human malady and maybe even some new highly “researched” drug claims. And let’s not forget the cannabis now cures hangovers to cancer posts on social media. You name it. There is just so much everywhere turned into gazillion dollar businesses for many.

So how do you sort out if what you are considering for yourself or a loved one is really a form of valid alternative care or fraud?

Despite what the pundits want you to believe, instead of just jumping on the latest fad, a little time spent investigating the latest social media post that caught your eye, that Facebook “secret” group or video claims can save you lots of wasted time and money. Not to mention quite possibly your health!

Day after day in practice we see patients who wisely question claims made more often than not. And our team is always willing to help sort things out as best we can for you. But we also see some less skeptical than others fall for products, claims and sometimes even paid “memberships” that turn out to be ineffective and sometimes just blatant fraud. We recently have highlighted those for neuropathy and some stem-cell therapies here.

Here’s my point. We all have a choice. Instead of taking so much at face value, take some time to investigate whatever it is you may be considering whether it be at home or for professionally rendered services. Nowadays especially it’s so easy to fact check quickly across multiple sources.

So the take away here is, let’s be more careful consumers. And more caring Doctors. You’ll be glad you spent the time asking, is this alternative care or fraud?

You decide. Let our team help.

Eating Better to Help Neuropathy

Do you remember why we eat? It’s to provide fuel and “building blocks” so our bodies can function smoothly, and repair themselves. Eating Better to Help Neuropathy can help you improve your neuropathy treatment!

In our last few posts I’ve talked about how simple a neuropathy diet can, and should be most of the time

Do you remember though, why we eat? It’s to provide fuel and “building blocks” so our bodies can function smoothly, and repair themselves. Thinking very consciously about this really can help you change your neuropathy treatment!

One of the biggest things I find that helps us is always having a powerful image of how we want to feel, and function! Think about it. Would you rather be building your body with empty calories from highly refined foods or from fresh, “live” foods such as vegetables, fruits and so on.

As part of good neuropathy treatment we are trying to stop or reduce “Inflammation”, the cause of much pain and suffering.

Neuropathy patients especially, need to be able to repair their bodies better, maintain an even blood sugar, and also provide things like magnesium, and vitamins.

In neuropathy, magnesium can help ease pain and restore better sleep. In our neuropathy diet, this would be from eating our leafy green vegetables, fruits and nuts and as part of our supplementations.

The B Vitamins especially help our nerve cells work better. A key neuropathy vitamin is B1 or Thiamine. This one is crucial in neuropathy and diabetes as it helps your body “burn” starches and sugars, commonly called carbs now a days.

Plant food sources of thiamine include  nuts, oats, oranges, seeds, legumes, peas and yeast. Cereals are limited in the neuropathy diet, but small portions of things like whole oats: (hint: always measure) can help your belly work better and help keep cholesterol levels in check.

One of my favorite ways to start the day is with ¼ cup gluten free granola with almonds, then, add 1 tablespoon of our pea protein powder, and finally a splash of soy or almond milk. You’ll be keeping your carbs around 15-20 grams and be getting a head start on vitamins if you do this right.

A final word about neuropathy treatment supplements. Neuropathy treatment supplements are often advised in the NeuropathyDR clinics, always under supervision, and knowing what medicines you may be taking.

But always remember, the foundation of your best  treatment at home should be eating better to help your neuropathy and prescribed activity, with co-treatments directed by your NeuropathyDR clinician.
