Are You Confused about what you've been told about Neuropathy?

 

Let's clear up the terms

You might be confused by all the names that are given to “Neuropathy”. I want to clear some of this up.

The main thing to understand is that neuropathy is nerve damage. You can call it by the area affected or by the cause of the nerve damage, but it is still the same thing – nerve damage.  

In the age we live in there are lots of ways to damage the body, and the nerves. The toxic chemicals in the environment, the food we eat with all its additives, preservatives and processing as well as many of the drugs that are so readily given to treat health problems are all causes of nerve damage. There is also many diseases that cause neuropathy as well as trauma that comes from not only accidents but surgery.

For a full list of these causes, you can read:

Causes & Risk Factors of Neuropathy.

Neuropathy is also named by the type of damage:

Types of Neuropathy Damage:

There are many names given to the type of neuropathy depending on the nerve involved:

Focal neuropathy – this means that only one (or at most a few) nerves are injured. The pain, numbness and/or weakness are confined to a single limb or a small area of the body or the head. They are usually caused by compression or trauma. Basically, one nerve gets damaged. The best known of these is carpal tunnel syndrome where the median nerve is damaged by compression of that nerve.

Mononeuropathy – Another term for only one nerve being affected.

Generalized neuropathies – these are associated with general medical problems – infections, diabetes, immune, nutritional related, drug induced, etc. Again, the nerves get damaged. In this case it can start with one nerve and spread, or it can affect many nerves depending on the cause of the neuropathy.

Polyneuropathies – another name for generalized neuropathy

Axonal neuropathy – this is a technical term for the microscopic part of the nerve that is damaged. If you think of a wire you have the inner core of the wire and the insulation around it. The core of the “wire” is called axon. 

Demyelinating – again if we think of a wire, the nerve is surrounded by a fatty tissue called myelin. This is similar to the plastic insulation around an electrical wire. When the medical doctor calls your neuropathy demyelinating, it means that the myelin sheath around the nerve is breaking down. The way that medical doctors determine if it is demyelinating or axonal is to do a nerve conduction studies (NCS) which can distinguish between these two types.

Small Fiber Neuropathy - Nerve Endings Damage – this is when the very ends of the nerves are damaged.

Special “types” of Neuropathy:

Hereditary Neuropathy – When it is considered inherited. Charcot Marie Tooth is considered hereditary.

Idiopathic Neuropathy – When they can’t figure out what the cause is.

The following types of Neuropathy are actually the area that is affected. In each type of neuropathy you can have a sensory nerve damaged or a motor nerve damaged. Sensory nerves damage creates pain, numbness, tingling, etc. Motor nerves create the inability of the body to send messages to the muscles and thus you get weakness and sometimes even drop foot. 

Autonomic – affects the autonomic system – glands, internal organs, etc.

Cranial  
affects the head

Diabetic amyotrophy
 – weakness on both sides of the body, blood vessel disease may be the cause.

Femoral Neuropathy develops in the front of one thigh, with muscle weakness and wasting.

Optic  
affects the eyes

Thoracic/Lumbar Radiculopathy occurs in the torso. Affects a band of the chest or abdominal wall on one or both sides.

Unilateral Foot Drop – damage to the peroneal nerve – trauma injury.

Hope this clears up any confusion you might have had with all the names being used to describe “neuropathy”.

The Diet for Dental Health or What to Eat for a Healthier Mouth

First you have to remember to:

Eat for your health, not for your taste buds. 

That is true in general and also for you teeth and gums. 

From research done on the de-mineralization of the teeth and unhealthy gums.

From Dr. Axe "How to Reverse Cavities Naturally and Heal Tooth Decay"  The below incorporates the successes of two other doctors as well and also from Dr. Weston Price, Dentist Pioneer in dental health's website.

Make your Diet: 

  • Rich in animal foods like meat, fish and eggs and bone broth from pasture fed animals. 

  • Eat wild fish (not farm-raised), fish eggs and shellfish from unpolluted waters.

  • Full-Fat dairy products (if tolerated) from pasture-fed cows, preferably raw cheeses and fresh and sour cream.  Raw dairy such as raw milk, whole yogurt, kefir, cheese and grass-fed cultured butter

  • Use animal fats, such as lard, tallow, egg yolks cream and butter liberally. 

  • Eat fresh fruit and raw and steamed vegetables preferably organic especially green leafy vegetables. 

  • Limited amount of fruit one piece daily early in day. No refined sweets. 

  • High vitamin D – get plenty of sunshine and days not in sun supplement with 5,000IU daily of D3.

  • Foods high in healthy fat like coconut oil, avocado, olives and fish or fermented cod liver oil.  Use only traditional vegetable oils - extra virgin olive oil, expeller-expressed sesame oil, small amounts of expeller-expressed flax oil and the tropical oils - coconut oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil. 

  • Fermented grains only and in moderation such as true sourdough bread (should not list lactic acid) No unfermented grains such as oatmeal, breakfast cereal, crackers, etc. etc.  Even better no grains at all. 

  • Nuts, seeds and beans only in moderation that have been sprouted to neutralize phytic acid, enzyme inhibitors and other anti-nutrients. 

  • Eat whole, unprocessed foods, NO processed food, packaged food or fast food.

  • Take cod liver oil regularly to provide at least 10,000 IU vitamin A and 1000 IU vitamin D per day.

  • Prepare homemade stocks from the bones of chicken, beef, lamb and fish and use liberally in soups, stews, and sauces. 

  • Use filtered water for cooking and drinking.

  • Use unrefined salt and a variety of herbs and spices for food interest and appetite stimulation

  • Make you own salad dressing using raw vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and a small amount of expeller-expressed flax oil.

  • Use traditional sweeteners in moderation. 

  • Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel.

  • Use only natural, food-based supplements (whole food vitamins)

  • Get plenty of sleep, exercise and natural light. 

Here is to a healthier mouth, gums and reversed decay.
