Help Your Body “Detoxify” Naturally

Help Your Body “Detoxify” Naturally

One of the things that is very popular after the first of the year in many people are weight loss and exercise programs and even “detoxify” plans are right up top. New Year’s resolutions and intentions are made shortly after the holidays, and usually fizzle out by the middle of February. This is common behavior.

But there is part of this strategy you need to know that can be dangerous, especially if you have neuropathy, fibromyalgia or chronic pain. In particular, don’t put yourself at risk by consuming dietary shakes, or pills of the compounds which contain multiple combinations of herbs. The reality is the interaction of all these together is not well known at all. In fact, some are downright toxic.

We have seen a 20 year old patient develop peripheral neuropathy after consuming a “diet shake” just for a week. Impossible? No in fact, more and more younger patients are showing up in emergency rooms after consuming energy and diet drinks, more than ever.

This is also one of the reasons that you will not find any herbal preparation in either the supplements or topical preparations we suggest and use in our clinic’s every day.

The reality is, with healthy daily living you’ll “detoxify” naturally every single day, and keep your weight off! For most patients, following the NeuropathyDR Diet, the carbohydrate control we advise by minimizing breads, pastas, rice, chips and so on, adding physical activity and exercise wherever possible can make an enormous difference in weight control.

One other thing, be honest with yourself! If you have diligently followed our diet especially following card control but still have difficulty with your weight then it’s possible there’s some other factors at work. These need to be identified and worked out often with lab tests and a diligent physical exam.

Stay away from “detox” and rapid weight-loss programs. Sometimes, these can really aggravate underlying neuropathy and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. The reason is some of the the so-called “detox programs” may actually “pull” potential toxins in from your body faster, resulting in higher concentrations and ultimately aggravating your condition.

Finally, it is a really good idea to warn your children of the dangers of consuming “diet and energy” drinks.

Improve Your Quality of Life By Adopting a Truly Healthy Neuropathy Diet and Nutrition Plan

Food

Regardless of what type of neuropathy you’ve been diagnosed with, I promise you that there are things within your control that can dramatically lessen your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

The number one thing you can do is to adopt a way of eating that can truly sustain your health and give your body the healing power that it needs to fight neuropathy. When we talk about a healthy neuropathy diet, we are not necessarily talking about weight loss—although for some individuals, weight loss will be an added benefit to a change in nutrition. The main goal here is to provide your body with the basics it needs for excellent systemic functioning as a baseline for improving your neuropathy symptoms over time.

Aim to eat several small meals and snacks each day, featuring proteins and low glycemic index foods. Ideally, you shouldn’t go more than two or three hours without eating something. Keep packaged and processed foods to an absolute minimum; your body needs the best possible fuel to produce the best health.

Don’t forget about the importance of staying hydrated when planning your neuropathy diet. Water helps to flush toxins from your body and keeps everything well-oiled. Be sure to drink filtered water. You should be consuming (in ounces) about half of your own body weight every 24 hours.

Of course, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t jump into a significantly different neuropathy diet without your doctor’s approval. This is especially true for certain individuals whose food or water intake can have dramatic or dangerous effects on their immediate health. For example, diabetics who are dependent on insulin will need to continue carefully matching their sugar intake to their insulin use, and people with heart disease or kidney disease may be advised to avoid excessive fluid intake.

It’s so important to work with a doctor who is well-trained in using nutrition as a key component of neuropathy treatment. To find a neuropathy diet expert near you, click here.
