In the last post, I talked about blue and red nerve pathways and about some of the gadgets that are available for Neuropathy pain; why they work and why they don’t work.
The Metabolic Problem
Having a metabolic problem is the combination of glucose and oxygen as opposed to equal energy. When you have glucose and oxygen, your body is supposed to produce energy.
Anytime you disrupt that path, whether it’s through diabetes (which is the most common cause of neuropathy), a thyroid process, or through an autoimmune process, the energy or these nerves are destroyed. Those are the nerves that are causing your neuropathy symptoms and when you have a metabolic problem, these become very fragile nerves and are the nerves that die first.
Where ICN comes in
All of my patients at ICN have problems. The main reason is that we, as Americans, have a nasty habit of eating what I call the Standard American Diet, which is basically gluten, soy, and dairy additives.
All this garbage is breaking our guts down. It’s disrupting our immune system, causing our immune system to turn against us and attack. As a result, it kills the blue pathways and you’re left with Neuropathy pain.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you eat right and stimulate these pathways appropriately, there is hope, and we can help.
What we do to help
We have a whole detox program you can utilize.
At ICN, our process is different from other Neurologists. We educate and empower our patients through knowledge and understanding what neuropathy is and how to find relief from it. We provide food sensitivity testing which involves a blood test to find out what foods are actually causing this attack.
While we wait for your blood work to come back, we’ll have you take supplements to reduce inflammation, take control of the gut, and stabilize your blood sugar levels. Then, we’ll introduce you to the Paleo Diet. This will drastically help reduce inflammation to get your blood flow back on track.
After being on the Paleo diet for 4 weeks, we will have the blood test back and we can start reintroducing some of the foods that we know are not causing you inflammation.
That’s the concept of our Metabolic Program. The idea here is to teach you how to take care of yourself, so when you go further down the road, this won’t become a problem again. You know exactly how to fix it, we will just point you in the right direction.
