The single most important thing you can do as a patient or family member is to do your homework, very carefully!
You know what I’m talking about. You have seen these ads as often as I have. ”This one Weird trick and your pain neuropathy will disappear.” Sometimes it’s just, “put this into your shoes and watch the miracles begin.” The single most important thing you can do as a patient or family member is to do your homework, very carefully!
Unfortunately, as you well know, neuropathy and most forms of chronic pain (like fibromyalgia, shingles, neuralgias, arthritis etc.) need a comprehensive approach in order for patients to improve—or whenever possible, recover!
You also understand that quality-of-life is the most important objective for any neuropathy or chronic pain patient. Now, I’d be the last to want to discount the value of good marketing… just as long as the solutions are ethical and viable.
There is rarely just one magic nutrient, drug, therapy, or technique that by itself is going to restore your health. This is a fact. This is exactly why we use only a multi-pronged approach to treatment for our patients.
What is most important, however, is that you keep yourself on track, making incremental—but definite—progress, on a daily basis!
The big things we all need to pay attention to such as maintaining a carbohydrate controlled, plant-based and junk-free diet, staying away from alcohol, smoking, getting as much physical activity as your condition allows, and really taking the time to understand the impact these behaviors have on your health—and how destructive or lifesaving your behaviors can be.
Above all, it is critical to be working with physicians who are fully on your side and encourage you to improve your health—not just calm your symptoms with medication.
This is what we do all day long- help patients just like you and also help train physicians how to implement all these tools for treatment as well as lifestyle training into their practices and to be at their very best for you!
