Additional West Palm Beach Nutritional Options for Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a painful condition. The usual approach for conventional medicine is pharmacological drugs. Some patients are satisfied with this approach while others look beyond medication when they don’t get the relief they want. New realizations are indicating an inflammation/gut connection that may be a factor. Nutritional supplements factor into the situation for these West Palm Beach neuropathy pain sufferers. Moses Chiropractic as a member of their healthcare team shares some new studies on the effectiveness of these additional nutritional options.

NUTRITION FOR NEUROPATHY PAIN

Neuropathic pain affects 7 to 10% of the population. Common treatment options consist of tricyclic antidepressant drugs, serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors, and anticonvulsants. For many sufferers, these approaches do not always meet their hope for relief, so they check into nonpharmacologic treatments like nutritional supplements. Many try vitamins B and D, zinc, magnesium, and St. John’s wart and curcumin. (1) In a recent rat study, the antinociceptive effect of biotin (a vitamin known as B7) on neuropathic pain was evaluated and confirmed it as a potential therapy for neuropathic pain. The study found that biotin supplementation could decrease the dose required of analgesic drugs. (2) Other nutritional means have been tried like magnesium, ALA, and GLA but need to be carefully used in certain patients with specific conditions (like renal dysfunction). Again, Vitamin B supplementation was shown to be well tolerated and to be more successful in relieving neuropathic pain than meds alone. (3) Moses Chiropractic will mix options to assist patients in finding pain relief.

COMBINATION OF APPROACHES NEUROPATHY RELIEF

Combinations of treatment methods often do more than one. For neuropathy, combining the understanding that metabolic syndrome and neuropathy are associated with lifestyle changes, researchers found that diet and lifestyle interventions help manage neuropathy. Since the gut microbiome and inflammation influence neuropathy, researchers examined and found value in exercise, nutrition, supplements, acupuncture and mindfulness-based practices for neuropathy care. (4) One study specifically mixed mindfulness with vitamin D to see how it affected the lives of diabetic neuropathy patients. It worked! The combination decreased pain severity and disability which improved their quality of life. (5) At Moses Chiropractic we insert gentle spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management into the mix to enhance relief.
