Personal Update

The nerves in my feet have been healing!
I almost gave up a week ago when I was not feeling the 60% minimum improvement that was promised after 3 months.  Now I have hope for 100%.

I had added back small portions of restricted foods and am still losing weight, just slower.

Stayed tuned for what my next blood tests may reveal.

German Workouts

On youtube, WellShaped TV has a variety of workouts in German including Bellicon bouncing.

I found another site with similar routines!

My Evaluation

Some specialists treat each patient differently but this doctor treated all of his clients the same. 
He does not have any partners so his treatment days are limited. 
Treatments are available just 3 days a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays).  
Any of these days can be cancelled frequently for holidays and vacations.
Unfortunately, he spent more time in adding more clients to his practice instead of treating those who already paid.

For every food or diet there are pro and con opinions.
Just because this doc believes his diet is the right one for everyone does not make it so.
Cut out food groups and of course, the client will lose weight because consuming less calories.
it is proven that losing weight will reverse metabolic disease so I am no longer worried about my insulin sensitivity.
Paying this doc a ton of money made me more committed to his diet and losing weight was a nice bonus but not a cure for my condition.
If my neuropathy condition is hereditary which it probably is according to the surgeon who did the carpal tunnel syndrome release on my right hand, diet has little to do with it, other than not gaining weight.
I had gained weight during my first pregnancy which triggered hand numbing because my blood vessels were compressing nerves and adding more fat to the area made the compression worse

There is no cure for me (this realization in itself was stressful) but I will try not to gain any weight.  I will keep active to help circulation and will deep breath to help my tinier than normal red blood cells get oxygen to my brain and nervous system.
I will continue his supplements and treatments to help my circulation till the visits become too stressful.

My main focus will return to limiting stress, not food groups.
(I have no Gluten or Milk sensitivity)
