Recently we discharged to home care a patient with neuropathy and weakness secondary to Inclusion Body Myositis, an inflammatory muscle disease with sensory and strength changes (weakness). As far as I am aware, there is no known cure.
In no way am I suggesting curative care was achieved. But this patient was 20% better in just five weeks, and this is after 2-3 years of standard interventions. The most striking gain though was in proximal lower extremity muscle strength gains, which objectively improved substantially off base-line measurements.
We modified our ND Protocols to include enhanced anti-inflammatory activity by boosting glutathione levels (a master detoxification system in the human body) and increasing EPA (the most anti-inflammatory Omega 3 EFA) levels, monitoring vitamin D levels, and a few other tweaks.
The best thing about our work is to see patients like this respond, and that gives us both hope, and reason to explore how we can help more people with similar illnesses.
The Correct Manual Therapies Speed Recovery...
Another really powerful day in the ND clinic. Wonderful, active 69 YO diabetic lady with PN hands and feet, very poor sleep for many months, on lots of gabapentin (> 2400mg/day).
She’s been a great patient already, driving 56 miles each way to see us. Rose followed our EXACT 3 step protocol, some > Sx post second treatment which is common, comes in today having slept through the night, so even her husband wondered what was going on!
And this is while she is tapering her meds!
Two things we are seeing in patients doing our ND metabolic rehab programs are significant weight losses without changes in diet or deliberate, heavy exercise, in patients new to our programs.
A recent patient reported a 13.5 lb wt. loss in under 4 weeks. This was in a 50 YO male with Metabolic Syndrome. And of course his chronic neuropathy is improving very nicely too.
Patients are also reporting better exercise and walking tolerance, and as a consequence, far better levels of well-being.
