Your gut has a mind of its own! Millions of nerve cells tell your brain to feel pain differently, make you depressed or happy and calm or anxious. Check out this article to learn more!
Making a statement like acidophilus can make or break your health may sound like a pretty powerful declaration, but it’s a true one. Many of you may wonder, “what in the world do you mean by that?” Here’s the answer.
Our bodies are so dependent on hidden functions that we learn to take them for granted. The stomach or gut, as it is often called, is a hidden wonderland of protective mechanisms. The lining of the gut contains millions of neurons (nerve cells). As one of the powerhouse neuronal organs of the body it’s no wonder so much is affected when it gets out of whack. When this portion of the body gets out of sync, chaos can ensue.
For instance, the common lifestyle of this day and age is all about stress and hurry. We eat poorly, don’t rest enough and always think we must be doing more, more, more. This type of lifestyle eventually takes a harsh toll on the body. Once this degradation begins, the next step is problems begin to ensue.
Specifically, when the enteric nervous system (gut neurons) gets messed up due to our bad habits, here are just a few things that can begin to be affected.
- Poor moods, depression, anxiety
- Poor bowel functions – leads to increased toxins and build up. This then leads to malfunctions of just about every part of the body.
- Immune problems and increased susceptibility to other invaders
So, what can we do about it?
How Can Acidophilus Help Gut Health?
In the last couple of decades, stories of probiotics of varying types have been used and abused by the popular markets. The premise is good on which they stand, but the message and the why are not always as forthcoming.
Probiotics, of which acidophilus is one, are not magic pills. Though they can have great impact when taken for specific repair, they can’t fix everything.
The most commonly studied and tested probiotics are Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus. FOS or fructooligosaccharides, are also used in probiotic to promote fermentation. Now finding supplements that can provide all these benefits is what makes research fun.
Instead of searching the world over, our team here at NeuropathyDR decided to create an acidophilus combination that is second to none. With our acidophilus/bifidobacter/FOS combination, you can rest assured you are getting the right probiotics in the correct doses to help reestablish a healthy gut flora. This results in a happy gut and a happy gut is a happy 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 supplement a try today, we do offer it here solo and in topical and as part of our Metabolic Dose Packs. (REMEMBER: Reception Room Members SAVE 10% Every Day!).
As with any supplement be sure to check with your physicians before beginning.
We’d love to have you join us over on Facebook. We share a variety of information and always welcome your feedback.

Surpise! There’s no magic pill to take it all away and make it all better. We wish!
That said, allithiamine might be something you want to try. Check it out here!
The post Are You Missing Your Magic Pill? appeared first on Blending Holistic & Conventional Care for Neuropathy, Chronic Pain & Illness.
If you are ready to help your pain, then we’d like for you to meet allithiamine. You may be saying to yourself right now, “what in the heck is allithiamine?” Well, that’s a good question because this is not a word you hear everyday. However, if you would like to help your pain and your brain, this is something you want to learn about.
Allithiamine is a fat-soluble form of the popular B-1 vitamin. The difference is the B-1 you typically buy and hear about is water soluble. Our supplemental allithiamine is fat soluble. That makes a lot of difference in what it can do for your body.
Water soluble vitamins are only partially absorbed and then excreted in the urine. They do not stay around in the body for very long. Fat soluble vitamins, however, hang around in the body much longer and are able to have greater effects. This can be a valuable asset to patients suffering with an unhealthy nervous system and suffering with deficiency symptoms. If you are interested in feeling better and learning to help your pain, keep reading.
Allithiamine occurs naturally in foods of the allium family. Specifically, those include onions, garlic, and leeks. These foods have long been known to be beneficial to your health. Sometimes it can be hard to eat enough of the correct foods to help your pain and nervous system. This supplement form is often suggested for patients whose intake of B-1 sources is insufficient or if the water soluble form is not providing the expected benefits. If you’re deficient this is a great product for helping you raise your B-1 level. It really can help your pain and improve mental clarity.
But, that bears the question…
Why Is Your Allithiamine Low?
So, why might your B-1 levels be low? There are many reasons this can occur. Here are just a few examples:
- High carbohydrate intake – B-1 is used to metabolize these.
- Chronic alcohol use
- Severe infection
- Eating a lot of processed foods
- Many medications
- Increasing age
As you see there are many reasons. This only scratches the surface of the causes.
Can Allithiamine Help Your Pain AND Your Brain?
A lot of times, doctors and nutritionists will recommend trying to raise your levels naturally at first. This is always best practice, of course. Besides the allium family, other foods high in thiamine consist of nuts, oats, dried beans and peas, asparagus, kale, spinach, broccoli, liver, and eggs. There are more, but this is a good list to get started with.
These foods may help to raise your B-1, but in some cases that is not enough. That’s when supplements may come into play. The benefits of supplementation when needed can be:
- Improved nervous system health
- Improved brain health
- Increased energy levels
- Improved peripheral neuropathy symptoms
- Decreased leg cramps
- Improved depression, anxiety, confusion
And the list could go on and on.
What Can You Do About B-1 Deficiency? How Do You Help Your Pain And Your Brain?
If you think you may suffer with or have been told you do have a thiamine (B-1) deficiency, we advise you to speak to us about allithiamine. This is a supplement proven to help many who have taken it. It is fat soluble and therefore, stays in your body longer.
For your reference, the oral and topical formulas we suggest are in the store here, in case you would like to purchase them today. Just so you know these formulas are free of wheat, corn, soy, yeast and phenol which are common food and chemical allergens.
As with any supplement be sure to check with your physicians before beginning. Patients with active cancer or history of cancer or pregnant should always check with their doctors before beginning any new vitamins or treatment regimens especially allithiamine.

Some people have never heard of metabolic syndrome. Although, you may know it by another name. Perhaps, you’re more familiar with the term pre-diabetes.
If so, then you know this is a precursor stage for the development of full-blown diabetes. That’s when your health can really start taking a turn for the worse. You may not know it immediately, but eventually, if left unaddressed at its root, diabetes will have detrimental effects on your body.
Metabolic syndrome is the “early” warning sign prior to the possible full blown development of diabetes. In fact, the development of neuropathy can occur sometimes 15 years or more before a diagnosis of diabetes occurs!
But turning around your lifestyle and making immediate changes may help prevent Type II diabetes altogether.
Interestingly, metabolic syndrome has become more and more common over the last decade. In addition to that scary fact, the age at which the syndrome is appearing is steadily decreasing. It is now quite common for young people and even children to be affected with metabolic syndrome.
But…Why Should You Care?
Well, when you consider that a little over a third of American adults are believed to have metabolic syndrome and probably a fourth of our children, that’s a good reason for us all to care.
Here’s the trajectory if we don’t wake up and get ahold of this. Metabolic syndrome becomes diabetes which is one of the primary risk factors for heart disease, stroke, neuropathy, and some cancers. In one word, that all sums up to unhealthy and downright dangerous.
If you don’t want to live the rest of your life in an unhealthy state with likely deterioration of health and function, then now is the time to get ahold of it.
Since 60% of neuropathy is diabetes related…now you see why we’re talking about metabolic syndrome. We would like to help you before permanent damage is done
We can help do this in a variety of ways:
- Preventing or helping you reverse metabolic syndrome
- Provide weight loss programs & nutrition recommendations
- Provide optimal preventive therapies immediately
