Neuropathy Healing with Dr. Ian Yamane

  • March 27, 2018 /

Neuropathy is an extremely painful and debilitating disease. There are many different causes and many different kinds of treatment for the pain a patient can be suffering from. At Valhalla Wellness Center, we seek to get to the root of the disease rather than simply trying to alleviate our patients’ symptoms.

What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy occurs when a body’s nervous system is damaged. There are many different causes of this disease, making it vital to find the source of the nervous system damage.

Neuropathy may develop because of:

  • Diabetes
  • Infection
  • Metabolism issues
  • Traumatic injuries

Symptoms of neuropathy include:

  • Weakness in arms and legs
  • Pain and numbness in hands and feet
  • A tingling, burning, or stabbing sensation in extremities

The Valhalla difference in neuropathy treatment

The difference in Valhalla Wellness Center's treatment for neuropathy versus traditional medicine lies in our effort to improve the overall health of our patients, thus improving their quality of life in general. For example, if the underlying cause of the neuropathy is an issue related to the GI tract’s inability to absorb nutrients, we will work with our patient to choose the right diet to specifically target certain nutrients into the body to help repair the damage done to the nervous system.

We also utilize neurostimulators to improve lack of blood flow. This can lead to increased circulation, helping to fix the pain and numbness in extremities. Using herbal infusion and wraps can also help relieve pain for our patients immediately.

We combine internal and external therapies to help our patients improve over time. These require a great deal of dedication from our patients, to work in partnership with us following a program to reduce and ultimately cure our patient of the disease.

Transcript:

"Neuropathy is a very debilitating disease. What we do, is we look at their nutritional intake because, oftentimes, it's a malnourishment issue.

If their GI tract is not absorbing or breaking down foods adequately then the patient, more than likely, is malnourished and not getting enough nutrition to the nerves. And the nerves are not getting enough nutrition then that when it starts to yell at my patient saying, “Hey there’s something wrong here! Get us fixed!”

And so, oftentimes, we can resolve this issue by giving adequate amounts of nutrition. But at the same time, depending on how much damage has occurred in their extremities, we can also apply different therapies externally, as well.

So when we combine external therapies with internal therapies, through nutrition - staying away from certain foods, eating certain foods as a form of strategy, and also taking specific types of formulations, we can often heal the underlying problem."
