Laser Therapy

Laser therapy, now called PBM (Photo-bio-modulation) can be the “missing link” in some forms of pain and neuropathy.

725 118 199x300 Laser Therapy For Neuropathy Treatment?Laser or PBM has been around since about 1960 or so when a now famous scientist produced these “focused light beams” in the laboratory. Lasers have been used in medicine for many years.

These ultra focused light beams can be used at high intensity to seal tissue, aid surgeons dentists and dermatologists in their daily work with patients. And at lower intensity, they have had applications in physical therapy and neuropathy treatment for some time too.

Now, lasers are everywhere, everything from PCs, printers and measuring devices to military weapons. I’m sure you may even have seen a few of your own!

So what does laser therapy have to do with neuropathy treatment?

Well, it could be that laser therapy is the “missing link” in some forms of neuropathy as we discovered in our 2020 research study.

As we discuss together frequently, no neuropathy treatment works 100 percent of the time. And that is a key point to remember. We also have talked about effective neuropathy treatment being the result of working only with highly trained neuropathy treatment professionals.

And nowhere is this more apparent than in laser treatments for pain and neuropathy. Even amongst laser neuropathy treatment experts there’s often is disagreement as to what makes good neuropathy treatment.

But some techniques in laser have proven extraordinarily powerful, and you are seeing one application of a THOR Laser treatment system here.

One of our basic attempts when treating neuropathy is to do what ever can help safely and effectively boost your nerve cells use of “energy”.

Well, along with proper nutrition and electrotherapy, laser may aid energy production in damaged nerves. The way this may happen is fascinating, but way beyond the scope of this column.

But the good news is more experience and research including our own will help us find even better neuropathy treatments than we have available today!

Always remember though, we go to great lengths every day to be sure your NeuropathyDR Clinician is up to date in the latest, and best forms of neuropathy treatment for you and your family!

Dietary “First Aid”

There really is some simple dietary first aid. Here’s how to get started.

This past week, you probably ate and drank some things you ordinarily wouldn’t.
Our advice? Always enjoy yourself but just don’t go crazy.

Why? Because it’s a whole lot easier to get back on course if you only stray a little.

Focus instead on the 99+ percent of your life, including following the NeuropathyDR Diet & Lifestyle Plan. And be sure to stay on track with your neuropathy home care kit care too!

But even if you stray from good neuropathy treatment habits even just a little sometimes you can feel really awful!

But there is good news! You can do both “prevention” and dietary first aid!

First of all, drink plenty of water if you go on “holiday”. It’s OK to sample different foods unless you are allergic or sensitive, but resist the temptation to go crazy!

Don’t drink alcohol at all if you have medication interactions, and be careful of overindulging in alcohol anyways, as it can irritate many forms of neuropathy & pain.

Make sure you take your prescribed supplements, and eat small frequent meals. Doing so will make it easier for you to stay on track if you do go to parties.

Now, if you wake up feeling lousy, don’t panic. Just get back on track ASAP with all your good self care.

A good Rescue Remedy if you really overdo is simply to do the BRAT Diet for 1 to a few days (small servings of Brown rice, Banana Tea and Applesauce). This is actually a good clearing diet for lots of people and can help you feel better faster after overindulging.

Also, be sure to be drinking enough water, and eating healthy all day (as we teach-minimal carb, adequate protein) every 2-3 hours.

Following the tips here, and your good self care you are more likely to really enjoy your holidays and time off a whole lot more!

Dietary “First Aid” for Your Neuropathy is a post from: Neuropathy | Neuropathy Doctors | Neuropathy Treatment | Neuropathy Treatments | Neuropathy Physical Therapists

A Real Strategy

It’s no secret, most of life’s issues can be dealt with more effectively by having a clear strategy. If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy or really any other form of chronic pain than you understand how difficult it can be manage this on a day-to-day basis.

One of the reasons for this is that by its definition chronic pain is insidious, meaning it tends to creep up slowly.

So like most patients for quite a long period of time you may have already tried a dozen or more medications.

But yet this entire time no one has helped you focus on the simpler things that can have enormous and often extraordinary benefits to your overall health, no matter what stage you’re at.

Specifically we’re talking about diet, meditation, mindfulness, stress reduction, and as much physical activity in which your condition will allow.

For those patients who have been seriously ill or recovering from surgery this simply may be getting up and about out of bed more often with assistance and at home physical therapy.

In this category I would also add the appropriate use of non-drug treatment modalities, physical therapy modalities, massage, using your NDGen kit and your wearable laser system.

Some of these of course are available in the clinic as well as at home.

What DOES not work is continually plying your body with more pills and potions available on-line without paying attention to everything else.

This is not to say of course that medications are not helpful. Often times these are extremely beneficial in helping to manage the pain and discomfort associated  when it can be at its very worst.

But for too many, simply relying on meds while ignoring the simplest but critical behaviors is doing you a tremendous disservice.

Many patients find that learning more about how these different tools like the NDGen and then redesigning a simpler life, along with reducing medications and their associated side effects are more appropriate self-care strategies that go a long way towards helping them improve the quality of their life.

That’s why we are here! Our entire team is standing by, ready to help when you are.

A Simpler Chronic Pain and Neuropathy Treatment Strategy. is a post from: Neuropathy | Neuropathy Doctors | Neuropathy Treatment | Neuropathy Treatments | Neuropathy Physical Therapists

It All Adds Up: Your Best Self-Care

Stay the course with your good health and your best self-care care habits, and over time everything becomes a little better!

One of the things patients and the BEST caregivers realize is that good treatment plans for patients with neuropathy and many forms of chronic pain can be simplified.

With simplification comes less stress AND expense.

Pulling this off means you must learn to be personally accountable, to you.

For example, we learned how easy the NeuropathyDR Diet with supplementation plans can be to follow. If you still don’t have a copy, you’ll find it in HERE. Many of you have told us how much better you feel JUST by following it!

Amazing as it is, we feel so much better  eating this way—and spending far less on groceries.

We also have talked about how important each key nutrient is, along with daily applications of neurostim and other key components of your  home care plan.

Every week is a little better until… something happens and you find yourself greeting off-track—lousy diet, not enough water, and not enough activity.

Maybe it was that wedding or party. Or weekend away. Or, worse yet, maybe some criticism from friends or relatives, targeting you for being so “good”.

Then you get to thinking, I can “cheat” on all this self-care and it won’t make a difference.

Nope, not at all…

Before you know it, a week or more has gone by and you find yourself sluggish again, in more pain, with poorer sleep…

So what’s up here? In reality, our bodies are “plastic”, but only to a point. And the older we get, the less this is true.

Miss a day of self-care—so what? But miss 2 or more, and before you know it, all hell has broken loose.

The fix for this is to tell yourself day after day that EVERYTHING matters, especially your good self-care.

So don’t let others sway or deter—stay the course with your good health and neuropathy care habits, and over time everything becomes a little better!

Remind yourself that it can take years to get sick, and repair takes time.

Just remember: everything you do matters!

Making Your Diet Count

Always remember, making your diet count goes a long way towards getting and feeling better!

In the past, I’ve talked about how simple a diet can—and should—be most of the time.

fresh fruits and vegetables isolated on white background

Would you rather be building your body with empty calories from highly refined foods—or from fresh, “live” foods such as vegetables, fruits, and so on?

Do you remember why we eat? It’s to provide fuel and “building blocks” so our bodies can function smoothly and repair themselves. Thinking very consciously about this really can help you change your old habits.

One of the biggest things I find that helps us is always having a powerful image of how we want to feel and function! Think about it. Would you rather be building your body with empty calories from highly refined foods—or from fresh, “live” foods such as vegetables, fruits, and so on?

In the case of pain, we are trying to stop or reduce “Inflammation”, the cause of much pain and suffering.

Neuropathy patients especially need to be able to repair their bodies better, maintain even blood sugar, and also provide things like magnesium and vitamins.

In most everyone, magnesium can help ease pain and restore better sleep. In our neuropathy diet, this would be from eating our leafy green vegetables, fruits and nuts. This is one nutrient almost everyone can benefit from supplementing with.

The B-Vitamins, especially, help our nerve cells work better. A key neuropathy vitamin is B1, or thiamine. This one is crucial in neuropathy and diabetes as it helps your body “burn” starches and sugars, commonly called “carbs”.

This you’ll get from eating nuts and lean proteins. Cereals are limited in the neuropathy diet, but small portions like a quarter cup (hint: always measure) can help your belly work better and help keep cholesterol levels in check.

One of my favorite ways to start the day is with ¼ cup gluten-free granola with almonds, then, add 1 tablespoon of soy or vegetable protein powder, and finally a splash of soy or almond milk. You’ll be keeping your carbs around 15-20 grams and be getting a head start on vitamins if you do this right.

A final word about supplements: always use under supervision and as we say repeatedly, don’t forget periodic blood tests.

Always remember, the foundation of your best treatment at home should be The ND Diet & Lifestyle Plan

Vitamin D Supplementation & Lifestyle Factors

Don’t Overlook Vitamin D Supplementation & Lifestyle Factors

Vitamin D is an absolutely essential nutrient that plays an important role in a healing neuropathy diet, not to mention multiple other types of disorders.

This vitamin has many key functions in your body. For one thing, it helps you maintain bone mass. Perhaps most importantly, Vitamin D allows you to build an immune system that can fight off invading diseases and restore order when your health has gone awry.

We may not even know everything there is to know about Vitamin D! New research continues to turn up additional ways that this vitamin is important for overall health as well as a vital part of a neuropathy diet.

Low levels of Vitamin D can really wreak havoc on your immune system. You’ll find that you get sick more easily with colds or the flu. You may also have global aches and pains that are hard to define or treat.

For your optimum health when battling neuropathic pain or discomfort, Vitamin D can be a significant part of a clinician-recommended neuropathy diet. That’s because Vitamin D helps your body manufacture certain substances, called neurotropins that exist to repair and regenerate damaged nerves.

You may be wondering how to determine an effective dose of Vitamin D. Unfortunately, experts don’t necessarily agree on this topic, especially in terms of world regions. Many European countries have a standard recommendation of several thousand international units (IUs) every day for adults.

In the U.S., doctors have often said that a good daily dose for adults is 600 IUs which for most of us is likely not nearly enough.

When I am helping a patient develop a customized neuropathy diet, I often recommend 2500 IUs or even more. That’s because the research shows that most people don’t get enough sunlight or enough natural food-based Vitamin D, so they need plenty of supplementation.

The best place to start is with a baseline check of your Vitamin D levels, so that you can work with your clinician to come up with the perfect dosage for your body’s needs. Most of all, be sure not to take TOO much Vitamin D without close monitoring—in very high doses, it can be toxic.

For at-home supplementation of a neuropathy diet, we so often recommend the NDGen Metabolic Support Formula, a safe and effective base mix of key nutrients to support optimum healing. Click here to learn more.

Just Keep It Simple

Just Keep It Simple. Sage advice that so often works, but only if you pay attention. Too often patients are chasing this doctor or that, this new pill or that, in search of relief rather than getting to the bottom of what may be actually causing their issues

One of the things that is most serious but far too often ignored in cases of neuropathy, fibromyalgia, many forms of chronic pain and indeed many chronic illnesses is the impact that daily habits and of course our lifestyles have on both the prevention and progression of diseases and illnesses.

Too often, in our society there is a rush to look for a magic pill to cover up symptoms rather than to find out what is really going on that could be perpetuating or in fact causing chronic health issues.

The most common of course in our society now is lack of fitness and excess and poor food consumption. Plain and simple, this causes more disease than any other single factor.

So you would think the smartest thing to do would be to start here when dealing with neuropathy or other health problem. Unfortunately, we find patients are conditioned far too often chasing this doctor or that, this drug or that, in search of relief rather than getting to the bottom of what may be actually causing their neuropathy.

Now this is not to say that bad things don’t happen to good people. Of course they do! This is where some of the most amazing drugs and surgery have a very wonderful place. But for the vast majority of what we see in practice every day the solutions to so many health problems are often right under our noses!

But what are you TO DO?

The first thing to understand is that “everything” doesn’t make you sick. Too often patients fall into this dismal pattern of thinking, based upon popular press and media. Nothing could be further from the truth. Everything doesn’t make you sick but many poor things in combination certainly do!

The most common of these is surrounding yourself with poor food choices, lack of regular daily fitness, and filling your home with possible environmental toxins. If this is the case, then the starting point for you is obvious!

There is more than enough in our affiliated practices and on this site and our social media linked below to get and keep you on track!

Your Best Chance of Beating a Serious Health Problem, Just Keep It Simple. is a post from: Neuropathy | Neuropathy Doctors | Neuropathy Treatment | Neuropathy Treatments | Neuropathy Physical Therapists

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a key nutrient, responsible for many essential functions in human body. Yes, and this essential vitamin has a role in many other disorders too.

What’s the Connection?

Perhaps the most significant functions are maintenance of bone mass and a powerful immune system. The more recent research suggests many additional roles for this key nutrient. We now know that when Vitamin D levels are low, widespread aches and pains plus more illnesses like flus and colds are common.

Yes, and maybe even neuropathy, both directly and indirectly.

Regarding infections, many researchers now suggest we should be more commonly using vitamin D as part of our treatment plans for patients.

The neuropathy Vitamin D connection probably is because Vitamin D is necessary for the body to manufacture some key neurotropic factors.

Neurotropins as they are often called are substances produced by the body to help nerves repair, and whenever possible regenerate.

There are a number different things that can influence your own neurotropin production, including key nutrition components and therapies like low-frequency nerve stimulation.

In fact, the research is so significant here we are so strongly motivated to supply NDGen neurostimulator kits for most neuropathy and pain patients.

This is why our homecare kits have become a very popular choice and work well the vast majority of the time. If you are new to Beating Neuropathy can find these at NeuropathyDR

So how much vitamin D is enough?

Well, United States says around 600 international units per day is fine, but European countries recommend levels much higher, on the order of a few thousand international units per day for most healthy adults.

So who is correct? I would definitely side with Europeans on this because research supports that most people do not get nearly enough vitamin D either from their diet, or sunlight exposure.

Personally, I recommend a minimum of 2500 units of supplemental Vitamin D per day combined with The NeuropathyDR Diet.

There are unfortunately no good plant sources of active vitamin D. (cholecaliferol).

The best dietary sources of vitamin D come from fish and fish oils.

But the most important advice I will leave you with today is to have your baseline levels of vitamin D checked, you and your healthcare providers must then determine the most optimum dosage for YOU!

Retest after the first 90 days to make sure your body is absorbing this key neuropathy nutrient properly.

You also need to be very careful because vitamin D can be toxic in very large amounts.

To learn more, check back with us frequently as we will update you periodically as the research indicates.

Better Home Care

Let’s Talk About Better Home Care You Can Use Today!

Move As Much As Possible! You don’t have to run a marathon, or even walk one. You don’t have to race a titanium frame bicycle. Just move the big muscles in your legs as often and as much as you possibly can. Exercise, even very gently at first, improves circulation. Improved blood flow to the legs and feet will help nourish damaged nerves.

A Warm Bath Can Do Wonders

Warm baths increase blood flow; reduce stress and aid in relaxation. All three of these benefits will make the pain a little easier to tolerate. But a word to the wise, check the water temperature with your elbow or your wrist before you get in the bathtub. The nerve damage in your feet makes them an unreliable source for judging temperature. Use a thermometer. We like 100 degrees Fahrenheit with some added minerals like Epsom salts (don’t be stingy) and antioxidants.

Take Targeted Supplements

Vitamins B-1, B-12, B-6 and folic acid are all vital to healthy nerves. We have found certain combinations in professionally tailored packages for each case often works best. In our clinics, we now use the NDGen® Metabolic Support Packs that Dr. John Hayes personally designed. If you eat a healthy diet, you may still not be getting the recommended daily amount of some vitamins and other nutrients. Be sure taking any supplements you self-prescribe won’t interact with any medications you’re taking.*

Control—or, Better Yet, Eliminate Your Alcohol Intake

High intake of alcohol is a toxin to your nerves. And if the nerves are already damaged, it’s even worse. Some people think that a drink a day is good for your health. We respectfully disagree. If you have nerve damage, that’s a chance you don’t need to take.  Don’t drink more than four alcoholic beverages a week (if you suffer from peripheral neuropathy; none would be even better).

Work More Closely With Us

Before you begin any self-care regimen or add supplements, herbs, or vitamins to your healthcare regimen, always schedule talk to us first. Virtually everything has some side effects, so make sure that what you’re planning to take won’t cause you more harm than good. *You can easily check for drug-nutrient interactions online. Special caution is advised in thyroid disease and cancer therapies during neuropathy care.

And Above All Else…

Don’t give up.  Self-care is vital to managing your pain or neuropathy.  While you may need a combination of these self-care tips and medication, sorting out yourself is not always wise. All it takes is a phone call to meet with the doctor that knows your case the best.

Your Best Self-Treatment

We know for a fact that your best self-treatment goes a long way towards help & recovery in peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain.

Let’s face it. As a clinician, one of the most amazing things I get to do is watch patients make extraordinary recoveries from devastating illnesses and injuries. So let’s talk about what experience tells is is your best self treatment.

Two people exercising at the beach

When people have a sense of control, and responsibility over their own direction, their neuropathy treatment outcomes are far better.

Of course, some health problems are much more serious than others. Some require much more time and effort to recover. And, yes, sometimes recovery is impossible or incomplete.

Regardless, however, we do know that patients who become more involved in their own neuropathy and chronic pain treatment do far better, are far happier, and have a much better quality of life.

The reason for this is simple. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when people have a sense of control, and responsibility over their own direction, their neuropathy treatment outcomes are far better.

So, what are some of these simple things that you could be engaging in on a regular basis? Number one, of course, is to let go of habits that are hurting your health.

These include things like cigarette-smoking, eating too much, or eating the wrong things. This is why we spend so much time in our books and social media talking about diet and lifestyle.

Number two: you can become physically active if your current condition allows. You can, if you’re recovering from surgery or an accident. Simply getting up out of bed {with assistance) more often can make a big difference at the end of the day.

Take advantage of all the tools your doctors and therapists can provide, including wheelchairs, walkers and canes.

This is also the reason that virtually every neuropathy and chronic pain patient that visits our clinics receives their own set of tools in a unique homecare kit.

We know for a fact that better, daily self-treatment goes a long way towards helping patients manage and wherever possible recover from peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain.

Last, but just as importantly, is to continually keep a good eye on your outlook and your attitude.

Along with our treatment & systems, our patients tell us all the time that it is their outlook on life and attitude to pull themselves through that has done the most to facilitate their recovery!
