Acetyl-L-Carnitine – Can It Help You?

Acetyl-L-Carnitine – Can It Help You?

Most people don’t have a clue what acetyl-L-carnitine is. Perhaps, you see it on the vitamin shelf and think, “yeah, whatever,” if you notice it at all. However, this supplement has been getting a lot of attention for its potential benefits.

As with any supplement, medicine or treatment, there’s no one-stop-shop or magic pill for everyone and everything. We’re all different and have varied chemistries. Consequently, this means things can act differently in our bodies. That’s why it’s impossible for someone to say, “this is a 100% effective.”

That’s also why it’s important for all of us to be wise stewards of our own health. For this reason, here at neuropathydr.com we enjoy sharing potentially helpful information in hopes we can help you.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is one of those hidden gems with the potential to help many. Now, we’d like to introduce you.

How Can Acetyl-L-Carnitine Help You?

To begin with, acetyl-l-carnitine is an amino acid. In case you don’t remember from science class, amino acids are the building blocks for proteins. However, this amino acid acts differently. Acetyl-l-carnitine helps our nerve cells utilize energy and function at peak levels.

We won’t go in depth about the details of how. More importantly, we want to focus on what it can do.

Based on research across decades, acetyl-l-carnitine has emerged as effective in supporting optimal brain health. It also helps memory and much more. Beyond the brain, it has shown great promise for impacting neuropathy pain, nerve functioning, energy levels and still more.

Here is just a small list of areas acetyl-l-carnitine is being or has been researched for its beneficial properties. These have shown varied levels of effectiveness, but all are believed to show promise though more research continues to be needed.

  • Memory improvement
  • Increased energy
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Poor brain functions due to certain causes
  • Nerve pain (neuropathy)
  • ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression
  • Fragile X – decreased hyperactive behaviors
  • Fibromyalgia – improved pain

And so much more.

With the potential of this supplement, we would be doing our readers a disservice if we didn’t share.

So, is this a guarantee it will help you? No. Is there a chance acetyl-l-carnitine could help you, definitely! If you’d like to give this professional quality supplement a try today, we do offer it here solo and in our topical and as part of our Metabolic Dose Packs. (REMEMBER: Reception Room Members SAVE 10% Every Day!).

Risks vs Benefits

Risks vs Benefits

Risks vs Benefits

Here is a proven fact. All of healthcare in fact you could argue most of life our best “decisions” are made by considering risks versus benefits.  As adults we ask ourselves and teach our children, do our actions today set us up for a healthier and better future or not?

What if we take no action at all? Is that better than doing something?

All of these are decisions that you need to make along with your healthcare providers on a regular basis. You see everything we do is risks versus benefits. This is so important to understand.  Make no mistake about modern science and medicine have developed amazing treatments.This also includes what we do here. We are continually working on treatments to help neuropathy and chronic pain patients.

Do YOU Always ASK your doctors Is the cure is worse than the problem?

So, what if instead, we as both doctors and patients took a very strong look at the underlying causes of so much of illness and treated those first?

You know, all those things just get us into trouble. Poor dietary habits especially over the long haul, inactivity, cigarette smoking, not paying attention to stress and emotional health. I’m sure you get the picture.

What if we did all of those things before we prescribed for patients neuropathy and chronic pain treatment drugs, or surgical procedures that could cause significant harm?

For example, if doctors and patients paid more careful attention and worked together just like we do on weight loss and lifestyle, far less patients would be placed on statin medication. Statin medications as you probably know are one major cause of neuropathy and are not without neurologic risks.

What if instead of injecting patients, and suggesting invasive procedures FIRST we both make sure as doctors and patients that all conservative treatment options were exhausted first?

You already know the answer…

You understand, as we do, that all good treatment is risks vs benefits!

So why not learn more today? Why not take actions that will help you live much more fully, without devastating side effects?

Make all your decisions about your neuropathy and chronic pain treatment very carefully!

Why not contact us today and let us help you too!!!

The Winding Road of Chronic Pain

The Winding Road of Chronic Pain

The Winding Road of Chronic Pain

We’re traveling down this windy, crazy, hazardous road of chronic pain. Often we’re speeding in the darkness with our headlights off, violently crashing into unseen obstacles. We shake off and often minimize the damage caused by these collisions. But if we don’t attend to these damages as they occur…our vehicle will soon be totaled.

Wildly we slip and slide out of control in the storms that overwhelm us. So we pull over, rest and wait for the storm to pass. But if the storm lasts too long, we stop clearing the windows, and cease to look if the sun has reappeared. This type of apathy is a slow and silent killer of hope.

Bridges often crumble beneath the weight of our burdens. This type of loss and isolation is one of the greatest hardships of chronic pain. If we are to avoid being stranded on an isolated island, and trapped in a deep dark pit of depression…survival requires us to adapt, learn new skills, maintain healthy relationships, and build connections to life.

We easily see when others are in need, and graciously pull over to offer assistance. After all, this is a welcomed distraction from our own painful journey…but lets not make it a road-stop. While it’s easy to identify needs and solutions for others, it’s equally as difficult to acknowledge our own need for fuel or repair. Our engines will cease to run, if we allow our ego to fill our gas tank with gallons of guilt, instead of letting another fill us with fuel.

At times we’re impatiently and painfully held up in surgical construction or we may find ourselves on a needed detour learning new paths that promote health. Pit stops are required, to clear the windshield, change the tires, tweak the engine so that we may travel with optimal performance. Maintenance and checking our route is essential for a less burdensome journey.

We are not alone in our chronic pain journey, for our doctors, friends and family are passengers…who’s needs also need to be acknowledged. It’s easy to forget that it’s a challenging and painful journey for them as well.

We are in control of our life and choose whether the pain steers us wildly off of a cliff or whether we take control of our vehicle and steer it in the path of our desires.

A Real Strategy

A Real Strategy

It’s no secret, most of life’s issues can be dealt with more effectively by having a clear strategy. If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy or really any other form of chronic pain than you understand how difficult it can be manage this on a day-to-day basis.

One of the reasons for this is that by its definition chronic pain is insidious, meaning it tends to creep up slowly.

So like most patients for quite a long period of time you may have already tried a dozen or more medications.

But yet this entire time no one has helped you focus on the simpler things that can have enormous and often extraordinary benefits to your overall health, no matter what stage you’re at.

Specifically we’re talking about diet, meditation, mindfulness, stress reduction, and as much physical activity in which your condition will allow.

For those patients who have been seriously ill or recovering from surgery this simply may be getting up and about out of bed more often with assistance and at home physical therapy.

In this category I would also add the appropriate use of non-drug treatment modalities, physical therapy modalities, massage, using your NDGen kit and your wearable laser system.

Some of these of course are available in the clinic as well as at home.

What DOES not work is continually plying your body with more pills and potions available on-line without paying attention to everything else.

This is not to say of course that medications are not helpful. Often times these are extremely beneficial in helping to manage the pain and discomfort associated  when it can be at its very worst.

But for too many, simply relying on meds while ignoring the simplest but critical behaviors is doing you a tremendous disservice.

Many patients find that learning more about how these different tools like the NDGen and then redesigning a simpler life, along with reducing medications and their associated side effects are more appropriate self-care strategies that go a long way towards helping them improve the quality of their life.

That’s why we are here! Our entire team is standing by, ready to help when you are.

A Simpler Chronic Pain and Neuropathy Treatment Strategy. is a post from: Neuropathy | Neuropathy Doctors | Neuropathy Treatment | Neuropathy Treatments | Neuropathy Physical Therapists

Vitamin D Supplementation & Lifestyle Factors

Vitamin D Supplementation & Lifestyle Factors

Don’t Overlook Vitamin D Supplementation & Lifestyle Factors

Vitamin D is an absolutely essential nutrient that plays an important role in a healing neuropathy diet, not to mention multiple other types of disorders.

This vitamin has many key functions in your body. For one thing, it helps you maintain bone mass. Perhaps most importantly, Vitamin D allows you to build an immune system that can fight off invading diseases and restore order when your health has gone awry.

We may not even know everything there is to know about Vitamin D! New research continues to turn up additional ways that this vitamin is important for overall health as well as a vital part of a neuropathy diet.

Low levels of Vitamin D can really wreak havoc on your immune system. You’ll find that you get sick more easily with colds or the flu. You may also have global aches and pains that are hard to define or treat.

For your optimum health when battling neuropathic pain or discomfort, Vitamin D can be a significant part of a clinician-recommended neuropathy diet. That’s because Vitamin D helps your body manufacture certain substances, called neurotropins that exist to repair and regenerate damaged nerves.

You may be wondering how to determine an effective dose of Vitamin D. Unfortunately, experts don’t necessarily agree on this topic, especially in terms of world regions. Many European countries have a standard recommendation of several thousand international units (IUs) every day for adults.

In the U.S., doctors have often said that a good daily dose for adults is 600 IUs which for most of us is likely not nearly enough.

When I am helping a patient develop a customized neuropathy diet, I often recommend 2500 IUs or even more. That’s because the research shows that most people don’t get enough sunlight or enough natural food-based Vitamin D, so they need plenty of supplementation.

The best place to start is with a baseline check of your Vitamin D levels, so that you can work with your clinician to come up with the perfect dosage for your body’s needs. Most of all, be sure not to take TOO much Vitamin D without close monitoring—in very high doses, it can be toxic.

For at-home supplementation of a neuropathy diet, we so often recommend the NDGen Metabolic Support Formula, a safe and effective base mix of key nutrients to support optimum healing. Click here to learn more.
