Therapy Visit #2

Before my treatment,
a gal took 6 tubes of blood and also urine.
(our medical insurance covers these tests)

Today I had the hydro bed added to my treatment and loved it
and was given a bunch of supplements and ointments*
(and an African violet to welcome me as a new patient)

He said my calves were much looser.
I have not had a real cramp since my first treatment Monday.
Next week will only be one day Wednesday because of the holiday



*
a liquid that is loaded with over 400 nutrients one capful a day
An herbal supplement pill to take once a day
a Magnesium powder recommended at night
an ointment to go on any sore muscles, joints, etc
a pump bottle that relieves pain through the skin applied either in the inner elbow or behind a knee for absorption
(this pump will definitely be in my pocketbook for my next trip to Atlantic City because the nights have been full of cramps there)

Peripheral Neuropathy

This past week, I was evaluated by Brian Anderson DC who specializes in reversing the progression of peripheral neuropathy.  I will be starting my actual treatment next week.  The hardest part will be adhering to a strict anti-inflammatory diet.  This has been the only hope I have been given about reversing the condition which has been ruining my feeling of well-being for the past 5 or more years.

Traditional medicine offered me nothing and actually may have damaged my nerves with Lipitor.

....... Stayed tuned.


ETA:
I had my first treatment Monday 5/22.
First I stood on a vibrating platform which is supposed to help everything especially fast twitch fibers.  Eventually this vibrating massage will become a workout.

Then I sat on a cushioned chair while disks were applied to the feet and lower back to stimulate circulation while I breathed in oxygen through nasal prongs (I am oxygen deficient because of small red blood cells).
Last I had heat therapy then all sorts of vibrating and rolling therapies to stimulate circulation and break up tight spots.
When done I felt really loose and light.

The only thing I found uncomfortable was lying face down on the therapy table which was not designed for large breasts.

I am determined to follow the anti-inflammatory diet which excludes sugar/refined carbs, gluten, and diary.  Soon my blood will be tested for allergies and other markers to determine which foods to avoid and which supplements to take.

The treatment is expensive which makes me (and my husband) more determined to do it 100% for the best results.  He usually sabotages all of my attempts to eat healthier.
A nice side benefit is finally losing some weight!
