Having a Neuropathy Treatment System to follow, provides for more measurable neuropathy treatment results!
Dr John Hayes Jr
One of the most frustrating things for patients and doctors alike is not having adequate treatment plans for patients who suffer from peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain.
Too often, a haphazard approach is taken both by patients and their professionals early on, and the net result is failure, or possibly worsening of the underlying neuropathy and chronic pain condition.
Neuropathy patients are searching continuously for this solution that solution. This magic pill, this wonderful cream that will cure all your ills.
The exotic supplement from the mountains of the Himalayas…You get where this is going.
Whatever you can think of is for sale, specifically targeting neuropathy & pain patients and yes even unwary professionals!
But the good news is when specific neuropathy treatment systems are followed, you know what to expect, and importantly how to measure progress.
For example, most patients who suffer from diabetic neuropathy know when they keep their fasting blood sugars within a healthy range, their neuropathy reacts much better.
Conversely, when blood sugars are out of control due to poor dietary systems the net result is worsening of their neuropathy.
And the same holds true for other facets of neuropathy treatment. For example, having a personal system for regular and scheduled exercise as well as stretching and rest can make a profound difference.
The timing of dietary supplements, combined with other pieces of a real system and yes even medications can make a big difference. We know for example that regularity, in terms of time of day and spacing of dosages and at home or in the clinic can make a huge difference for many neuropathy patients.
We also know that when treating with our home care neuropathy treatment systems at specific times, intensities frequency and combinations with the entire NeuropathyDR treatment system makes a huge difference and leads to bigger improvements in quality of life.
Remember no two patients are the same. Some trial and error is necessary to find out what works best.
But the good news is having a neuropathy treatment system instead of playing “Blind Archery” with your health provides for more measurable neuropathy treatment results!

Contrary to Popular Thinking About Metabolism and Weight Management, Eating More Often Can Benefit Those with Peripheral Neuropathy.
We all like to blame obesity and excessive/unhealthy eating habits for the development of metabolic problems. In a way, it really is that simple: when you consume more calories at one meal than your body needs, and when what you’re eating is also laden with fats and carbohydrates, then you probably will gain too much weight—which can affect your body systems negatively.
On the other hand, changing HOW OFTEN you eat can have a positive impact and can even assist you in managing your peripheral neuropathy symptoms.
By eating more frequent meals, you will be training your metabolism to operate differently, teaching your body to burn fat rather than store it. Your blood sugar with also even out, and you’ll stay warmer overall—two bonuses for those dealing with neuropathy related to diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
However, there’s a catch. You’ll need to eat smaller and more frequent meals and/or snacks that contain fewer carbohydrates and some type of protein. Ideally, you’ll be eating something every three hours.
An example of the kinds of meals I’m talking about would be a breakfast of steel-cut oats with berries, or perhaps a protein shake. For a substantial snack, you could have a small handful of almonds (which contain healthy fats).
Of course, if you suffer from diabetes-related peripheral neuropathy, you’ll need to be very careful about sugar intake. This just underscores the importance of working with a neuropathy treatment clinician such as one of our NeuropathyDR® professionals, who can create a customized dietary and treatment plan based on your peripheral neuropathy symptoms and individual health needs.

You could be suffering from peripheral neuropathy caused by the very same drugs that saved your life.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, your diagnosis was just the beginning of a long battle…
These are all weapons in your fight against a dreaded disease.
But what you may not have realized is that these treatments, especially chemotherapy, can have some serious side effects. Side effects in addition to the nausea, hair loss, etc., that first come to mind. If you’ve completed your chemotherapy treatment and you’re now suffering from:
- Tingling and/or burning in your hands and/or feet
- Pain in your nerves
- Loss of the sense of touch or an inability to feel vibration
- Temperature changes in the flesh –extremities that are excessively warm or cold
- Side effects from pain medication that cause insomnia or difficulty staying asleep
You could be suffering from peripheral neuropathy caused by the very same drugs that saved your life.
The good news is that your peripheral neuropathy can be treated. Many chemotherapy neuropathy patients are finding relief with combined therapies of
- Specialized NeuropathyDR® Treatment Center Care
- Nutrition Therapy
- Nerve stimulation therapy, such as the NDGen Family of Devices
- Laser and LED (LLLT)
The precise combination of these complementary therapies in NeuropathyDR® protocol can bring relief from your peripheral neuropathy and put you back on the road to a full life.
To understand the effectiveness and importance of these complementary therapies in treating your post-chemotherapy peripheral neuropathy, it helps to understand each piece of the therapy “puzzle”…
Manual Therapy by a Trained Professional
Chances are very good that if, in your pre-cancer life, you never suffered a sports injury or some other type of injury or accident, you may have never been treated by a highly trained chiropractor or physical therapist who uses specialty neuropathy care.
Traditionally, these professionals have diagnosed and treated injuries and illnesses affecting the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. By employing a gentle manipulation of the spine and other joints, our professionals will assist your body in healing itself.
We use exercises, and manual manipulation of your joints and muscles to help realign the spine and put your bones and joints back into more natural movement.
Cancer patients are increasingly turning to chiropractors and physical therapists as their team to alleviate pain and the stress of not only their cancer but also the side effects resulting from their course of treatment. While this cannot prevent or cure cancer, it can help you deal with the symptoms and pain associated with cancer. By addressing a healthy spine and joints, proper treatment promotes a healthy nervous system and that’s a basic building block for regaining your pre-cancer health.
Your local NeuropathyDR® practitioner is a highly trained specialist and can design a personalized program around your needs to treat your peripheral neuropathy symptoms.
Next time, we’ll talk about nutrition therapy and nerve stimulation. Join the conversation and share your experience on our Facebook page.

Vitamin A Is a Key Neuropathy and Health Nutrient
This key nutrient is responsible in a large part for healthy skin and epithelial cells. Those little guys are the cells, which line our mouth, GI tract and even our lungs.
This is why you now see so many skin lotions and topical drugs with Vitamin A derivatives.
Vitamin A is also needed if or a normal healthy immune system. In fact, during times of infection, I’ll suggest patients take some very large amounts but just for a few days. There are however two serious CAUTIONS! If you are pregnant or of childbearing age you need to know excess Vitamin A is teratogenic, meaning it can cause birth defects. This is why we advise young women take natal only formulas for at least 6 months before conception. These formulas also contain extra Folic acid, which helps prevent birth defects.
The next caution is that excess Vitamin A can be TOXIC If you consume too much and possibly in liver disease. Vitamin A Is one of the fat soluble vitamins, so it hangs around in our bodies a good bit longer than things like most B vitamins. So please work with your own health professionals on dosages for you.
Deficiencies in this key nutrient are more likely in malabsorbtion syndromes and bowel diseases. If you are following the NeuropathDR Diet Plan you should be in good shape, as long as you are consuming lots of leafy green and brightly colored vegetables.
Unfortunately, it’s only beta-carotene not the other caratenoids which have significant pro-vitamin A value. So veggies like carrots are particularly good for this reason.
Retinol is the most active form and is found in meats. This largely depends upon how healthy the animals are we consume.
Because Vitamin A is so critical to immune function it has roles in prevention of infection and probably many cancers as well.
So know you know! Don’t ignore this Key Neuropathy Diet Plan nutrient!
