Nutritional Neuropathies

Nutritional neuropathies occur as the result of poor nutrition, particularly if there is a deficiency of certain B vitamins. All of the B vitamins are important for normal nerve function. Thiamine (B1) is commonly found in enriched breads, pasta, and cereal. Thiamin deficiency may occur in alcoholism, anorexia, or bulimia. Neuropathy can also occur in people who are deficient in Vitamin B6 or Vitamin B12. Vitamin B6 is found in meat, beans, greens, fish, and whole grains. Vitamin B6 deficiency is uncommon, but can occur as a side effect of certain medications such as the antibiotic, isoniazid. [...]

Effects of Stress in Patients living with Neuropathy

Stress and Neuropathy   Peripheral neuropathy involves the nerves transporting information from the periphery to the central nervous system (spinal cord and brain), in both ways. For better understanding, peripheral nerves tell the brain about the sensation of heat or cold in their zone (each nerve has a corresponding zone) and the brain responds, for example, in the face of extreme heat, with a movement away from that zone, so as to avoid a burn.

Myelin Layer

The myelin layer is a white fatty and protein covering that insulates and protects a nerve fiber. The concept of myelin can be thought of as similar to the insulating coatings that typically surround electrical wiring. Just like insulators are needed to protect electrical wires, myelin is needed to protect our nerve fibers which incidentally, conduct electrical current also. Myelin is made up of roughly about 80% fat, and about 20% protein. [...]

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Symptoms of Neuropathy   Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the peripheral nervous system. This is a complex and extended network of nerves that communicates the whole body with the central nervous system (spinal cord and brain). This is a two-way communication, transporting information, i.e. about high temperature in that part of the body and brings a response from the brain or spinal cord, like getting that part of the body away from the heating source.

B-Vitamins There are eight known B-vitamins. These vitamins are all considered to be water soluble, meaning that any excess amounts are excreted in the urine. They are found in sources such as meat, beans, potatoes, and whole grains. B complex vitamins are important for overall health and well being. B vitamins, such as B12, B1, biotin, and folate in particular, play an important role in healthy nerve function. [...]
