We often get referrals for the treatment of neuropathy. This condition affects nearly 20 million Americans, about 1/15, and incredible statistic. We will utilize acupuncture with these patients but its also important to recognize dietary changes can also provide a great deal of help in these cases. A recent article in the American Chiropractor by Dr. Todd Singleton points out the following;
"To help a patient recover from neuropathy, it's important to maximize his or her intake of dark leafy greens, brightly colored vegetables, fresh fruits, and omega-3 rich fish (like salmon). It's also important to reduce the patient's intake of inflammatory refined grains, refined vegetable oil, and refined sugar. Because B vitamins are necessary for healthy nerves, you should recommend foods rich in this nutrient (mushrooms, lean meats, etc)."
So, we utilize a combination approach with acupuncture and dietary analysis when treating neuropathy and these patients often do well with care.
