Significant improvement in the quality of life can happen by making a few simple changes and adding special combinations of good neuropathy treatments.
One of the things we get asked all the time is, “What makes NeuropathyDR different?”
This is a really good question. For anybody who suffers (or loves someone who does) from peripheral neuropathy or another form of chronic pain, it can be very frustrating to sort through all the details.
The good news is that the reasoning behind how we are able to provide neuropathy treatment is quite simple.
My background is in health care and nutrition. So, when I first began intensely treating neuropathy patients in 2008, I knew that improving their underlying health—especially how nerve cells process energy—had to help improve many patients’ peripheral neuropathy and other forms of nerve damage or chronic pain.
Of course, there are some patients we cannot cure. But we do find that even in patients with genetic neuropathies or other extremely difficult-to-treat cases, significant improvement in the quality of life can happen by making a few simple changes and adding special combinations of good neuropathy treatments.
The bottom line is, your nervous system is made up of billions of cells called neurons. Neurons are highly sensitive to their own environmental changes; things like long-term oxygen starvation due to cigarette smoking, or carrying around too much body weight for too long.
Our society is now developing diabetes at alarming rate, in younger and younger age groups. This is largely due to poor food and lifestyle choices. We are also living longer, as a byproduct of better infection control, better chemotherapy drugs, and surgeries.
These things all bring with them increased chances for developing chronic and painful conditions such as peripheral neuropathy.
The reason for this is, all of the things we have talked about today will affect how the nervous system processes energy—leading to the development of peripheral neuropathy.
Wherever possible, helping to restore energy efficiency to nerve cells can make a tremendous difference in many patients with peripheral neuropathy.
And that is why our treatment program includes better nutrition and body motion—and therapies such as neurostimulation, laser, and physical therapy, often with nutritional supplementation.
Next time, we will focus on precisely what these things are, and how they may positively impact your peripheral neuropathy.
