“That Neuropathy Treatment Does Not Work…”

“That Neuropathy Treatment Does Not Work…”

Some of the comments we get from neuropathy patients, and even some docs and physical therapists who apply to train with NeuropathyDR, include things like, “That Neuropathy Treatment Does Not Work”, or  “What makes your neuropathy treatment different?”, or “I know about (a certain device); I have one…”, or “No one can help that type of neuropathy…”

“What makes your neuropathy treatment different?”

Here is the bottom line: if you have been reading our posts, you know neuropathy is more than a single disease or condition. Neuropathy is part of diabetes about 60% of the time, and neuropathy occurs in certain forms of cancer drug therapy.

But what most fascinates us is every patient, even with similar diagnoses, responds differently! When we study the science, we know why this is so.

Different types of neuropathy attack different parts of the nerve cells; the ones damaged or impaired in neuropathy. Some affect the nerve cell body, some affect the long slender axons, and essential nutrients and toxins not being moved around in the cell as they do in healthy nerves even cause some neuropathies.

NeuropathyDR clinicians are trained to use their skills and training to provide each piece of the treatment puzzle. We spend a lot of time helping our affiliated doctors solve tough cases.

Some of us have gone way beyond the training all our clinicians get, and spent many more hours obtaining Neuropathy Treatment Board Certification.

The most exciting part? Good neuropathy treatments may actually stimulate healing and repair. The NDGen in particular especially when combined with laser neuropathy treatments are extraordinarily encouraging!

But, almost never does just ONE part of treatment help neuropathy patients for long.

So, the next time you are tempted to say, “I tried that neuropathy thing and it did not work,” remember that, unless everything is done that CAN be, your neuropathy treatment results will likely not be as good as they could be!

Do You Suffer from “Analysis Paralysis”?

Do You Suffer from “Analysis Paralysis”?

While searching for answers or treatment, vow to do everything you can TODAY to improve the quality of your health and well-being without “Analysis Paralysis”.

If you are reading this, no doubt you understand how difficult chronic pain and frustrating a diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy can be. You probably know that many times it is impossible to identify precisely what causes a patient’s peripheral neuropathy. The same is true for many forms of chronic pain.

You should know this is very frustrating for your doctors as well. One of the things that’s the most frustrating for all of us is searching for a precise answer where none is liable to be found. Unfortunately, many cases of chronic pain including peripheral neuropathy are just like this.

So what happens is, both patients and clinicians will delay treating the patient. Now, sometimes this is a good idea— especially when it involves strong medications with powerful side effects and/or invasive tests or procedures. But what also happens is, while searching for a precise answer or treatment plan, constructive changes such as changes in health and behavior are neglected, and our patient’s suffering continues. This is “Analysis Paralysis”?

We suggest a better solution is to vow to do everything you possibly can to improve the quality of your health and well-being immediately. What we do know is that our behaviors have a profound impact upon the outcome of any disease, trauma, or health condition.

For example: could you become a little more fit, starting today? Are there other habits you have, like smoking cigarettes, or consuming too much alcohol, that you could change immediately? These could make a profound difference in how you feel a month from now. In fact, you may want to start with this free diet and lifestyle guide.

So, while it’s wonderful to have a single diagnosis, and all the answers, too often this is not possible.

This is why becoming more involved with your own health conditions goes a long way towards speeding you on your path back to health. But where do you begin? This is always the first question that patients pose.

The answer is, start with a list of things you could be doing different right now including picking up the phone and calling us today!

So don’t add “analysis paralysis” to your list of maladies. Instead, vow to take daily positive actions, however small they may seem.

Is My Treatment Actually Helping?

Is My Treatment Actually Helping?

Is my treatment actually helping is a common question? The real measure of your treatment progress often times comes down to the examination skills of your doctor.

This is one of the questions we get quite often not only from patients but also from physicians and physical therapists who are new at treating patients with chronic pain and peripheral neuropathy.

It’s also very important to understand one of the basic concepts common to many patients with the most common types of pain is that laboratory and diagnostic tests are often completely normal. Sometimes, there are only very slight abnormalities which are misinterpreted or remain a point of confusion for both the doctor and the patient.

There are also tests like EMGs and nerve conduction studies, and sometimes even these are normal or nearly so. All of this makes accurately evaluating effective neuropathy and pain treatments a real specialty.

Let me share a secret with you. The real measure of your treatment progress often times comes down to the examination skills of your treating clinician. Even despite extensive technology, a good examination is still the most important element of getting great care!

Furthermore your doctor must have excellent record keeping systems so he or she can retrieve your information on a moments notice.

Some of the things that we check for are really quite simple. Things like your range of motion, sensation to touch, temperature, and vibration. Also your ability to walk on your heels and toes will be tested. All of these things can tell us so much about your progress.

Yes, sometimes you will need more diagnostic tests to confirm your progress. But, there is still no substitute for a very thorough initial examination as well as thorough and periodic follow-up examinations.

You should always feel completely comfortable with your doctor and her examination skills. If not, find somebody else. Ask questions but most especially ask what the answers to those questions mean. You have every right to expect honest answers.

Neuropathy and Chronic Pain Morning Game Plan

Neuropathy and Chronic Pain Morning Game Plan

If you or someone you love suffers the misery of chronic pain or neuropathy, you know how these can seemingly run your life. Here is some good news. Having a neuropathy and chronic pain morning game plan can reap huge  benefits!

Daily routines can make for a happier days.

When conditions like shingles, peripheral neuropathy and back pain linger, a real strategy is needed to best get control of your life.

Experience in the clinic for over many years tells us repeatedly that those patents with routines do far better, suffer less pain and life disruption, including depression.

So what does this Daily plan look like? Something like this:

Get up at a set time every day. Be sure to stay well dressed and completely warm and comfortable year round. Next drink a warm beverage like coffee or tea. Use stevia instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners. Ideally, you’ll be sipping during quiet prayer or meditation, even if just for a little while. (There’s nothing wrong with longer periods either!).

Within 30 minutes of arising, have some easily digestible protein. Our favorite is Pro-Veg Shake with almond milk.

Next, some light to moderate activity like a walk, gentle bike ride, and some stretching. It’s crucial that you stay well fed and warm to get the most pain reduction and healing benefits.

After a shower or bath, get yourself to therapy if it’s a treatment day.

If not, engage in some good self-treatment! Typically our patents use their NDGen for pain or neuropathy treatment.

And then, get on to your day! Remember, to follow the ND Diet and chronic pain reduction guide you can get free HERE.  Low carbohydrate, high quality snacks like nuts and small amounts of fruit are part of this so your are never going more than 3 hours without refueling except on intermittent fasting days (if you are NOT on insulin).

You may need to work on this but always keep your life as simple and free of distraction as possible.

At the end of your day, repeat the all the same great self care and stick to the diet plan above!

This has proven to be a winning morning routine for many neuropathy and chronic pain patients, and I hope for you too!

Tell us about your morning routine!

Stop Waiting for the “Magic Fix”

Stop Waiting for the “Magic Fix”

Right now, a “magic fix” or “formula” for so may health conditions are pushed at consumers on many web and social media platforms. Not unexpectedly, the results can be disastrous. Nowhere else are there so many gimmicks, offers, and programs available for people who struggle with weight management. Of course, there are many other conditions that fall into this category.

You don’t have to go far to find numerous ads and sales pages for some new magic fix or formula. Unfortunately, peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain is no exception.

Here is what concerns us the most: peripheral neuropathy and many forms of chronic pain have multiple underlying medical factors.

This makes them necessarily complex to evaluate and treat. Missing one could be deadly.This is also why looking for one simple magic fix,  formula, or pill to help “cure” your problem is often ineffective, at best—and dangerous, at worst.

So what are the answers— real answers—to become a more informed patient?

Become your own treatment advocate! Look for complete treatment systems rather than isolated over hyped pieces. Approach any serious underlying condition with curiosity, and uncover all the relative facts. You also find that this will make your doctor’s job of providing you an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment much easier.

When you approach any serious underlying condition with curiosity but with caution and physician guidance, and uncover all the relative facts, you’ll be far happier and ultimately much more satisfied with any at-home or in-clinic care.

Physical Activity and the Best Treatment

Physical Activity and the Best Treatment

Much has been written about the effects of exercise and health in general. But what you may not know is there are good studies showing improvements in many health parameters with regular physical activity.

Not too long ago, the American College of Sports Medicine made the statement that adults should be very physically active seven days a week. Not unexpectedly, some in the popular media attacked this as ‘totally not doable by most adults’.

But the fact is, the more sedentary our lives become, the worse our health becomes. For example, we know that metabolism slows with as little as 90 minutes of continued sitting at your desk. As your metabolism slows, you become much more efficient at making fat than you do burning it.

And as a regular reader you know that poor metabolism can lead to the development of neuropathy, type II diabetes, or more serious illnesses.

So this means you can boost your metabolism with a workout at the gym or a stroll in the morning—and eat properly—but sitting all day without moving will negatively impact your health.

Typically, inactivity will make neuropathy and chronic pain worse. So what’s the solution?

In simple terms, it’s important to get as much physical activity as you possibly can. In times of illness, or recovering from surgery or accidents, this may simply mean getting from bed to bathroom more often. As recovery continues, it’s imperative that you push and move as much as possible.

For patients who suffer from peripheral neuropathy of the feet, using bicycles and similar low-impact equipment can be very beneficial.

But whatever you do, make sure you are doing it often enough! Even just five minutes an hour can really add up at the end of your day.

Not only will you feel better, but you will improve the chances of a better neuropathy and pain treatment outcome!
