Neurological Conditions and Neuropathy

Millions of people in the US struggle with neurological conditions.

Neurology and neurological conditions are conditions that relate to the brain, spinal cord, or nerves. 

The nervous system is comprised of these parts:

1- Central Nervous System – this includes your brain and spinal cord

2- Peripheral Nervous system – these are nerves that reside outside your brain and spinal cord and relay information between your brain and the rest of your body.  There are 3 parts of peripheral nervous system that each has a different function.

  • Motor – these nerves connect the brain and spinal cord to your muscles to cause movement
  • Sensory – these nerves connect the brain and spinal cord to muscles to skin and elsewhere so you can feel pain, temperature, vibrations and other sensations.
  • Autonomic – these nervesconnects your brain to most of your internal organs and controls involuntary function (e.g., blood pressure, digestion, heart rate, glands).

The following are more common neurological conditions I can help with:

  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Small Fiber Neuropathy
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cognitive Health and challenges
  • ADHD
  • Migraine Headaches – including general migraines, hormonal migraines, ocular migraines and abdominal migraines
  • Post-Concussion syndrome

How I approach and treat neurological conditions

The goal is to improve your day-to-day quality of life, to be able to function better at home and work.  This doesn’t happen overnight, so there are a number of steps.

  • The most important thing is to find out what is causing your symptoms in order to adequately treat it. To do that, I do a thorough evaluation investigation/evaluation of present symptoms, medical history, labs, and imaging, and take the time to find out how your neuropathy has come into your life and health.
  • Usually with neurological conditions, if someone hasn’t already seen a neurologist for work-up, I refer to a Neurologist for additional evaluation and specialty testing. Getting a team approach and thorough diagnostics is so important. Sometimes a neurologist doesn’t have an answer. I work with those with clear-cut causes known and those who no one knows what is going on.
  • I take a multi-systems approach and look at the genetic, biological, neurological, biochemical, hormonal, environmental, medications, nutritional aspects of what is going on for you and address whether they are contributing to your symptoms.
  • I will address both the acute symptoms and the underlying root cause of the symptoms. This way you can get some more short-term relief while uncovering and treating the underlying cause of the problems.
  • I integrate the best of both natural and conventional medicine for individualized treatments and care to get you back on your feet, so to speak.
