Diabetes Special Report:
The 5 Keys To
By Dr. Roy Hall MD
Founder of Mountain Health Functional Medicine
You know what the biggest commonality is with every diabetic patient we see in the beginning?
They have been literally told that you need to take this medication (metformin, or some variation) for the rest of your life, and this condition is likely to get worse.
How is that for dropping a bomb on a patient, and painting a bleak future?
Unfortunately if you follow those directions, and do nothing else, it’s true. Your likely going to get worse. Of course there are many more steps we take our patients through that completely change the game.
Our patients know they don’t have to get worse. In fact they experience phenomenal changes.
There are 3 basic misunderstandings that a majority of diabetic patients have about their condition. If they believe and live as if these misunderstandings are true, they will literally sabotage their potential for a healthy future.
What are those 3 misunderstandings? I’ll tell you…
Diabetes Misunderstanding #1: Diabetes Always Get’s Worse
According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Diabetes is Preventable and Controllable.” I would personally add to that reversible. I have seen it enough times to say with conviction that
Type II diabetes is reversible. By taking a functional approach to diabetes that incorporates the proper lifestyle, diet, and advanced nutritional protocols, not only does it not have to get worse, it can improve and completely reverse.
Diabetes Misunderstanding #2: Diabetes Is Genetic, You Just HaveTo Learn To Live With It
There is absolutely a genetic component to this disease. Certain people are more predisposed to diabetes than others. What you may have failed to understand is that if you properly control the components of the disease that are in your control, namely diet, lifestyle, and the advanced nutritional protocols available, then you can trump genetics. The part of this disease within your control is greater than the component not in your control.
Diabetes Misunderstanding #3: As Long As You Take Your Medication Diabetes Is Not That Big Of A Deal
Not that big of a deal? Certainly you have read the side effects, both from the medications and the disease itself:
• Peripheral Vascular Disease
• Heart Attack and Stroke
• Eye Disease
• Weight Gain
We live in the information age. We are drowning in information. You may come to believe the 3 common misunderstanding by reading various sources on the internet or speaking to a friend or family member. Accepting them as fact only leads to disempowerment. If you feel that nothing can be done about this disease except take some pill, then you will steadily coast along the diabetes pathway. Eventually becoming dependent upon insulin, and day by day moving closer to the side-effects I listed above.Is that the life you want? Is that what your future, your golden years should hold? I don’t think they should and I know you don’t think they should either.
Insulin Resistance and Its Relationship to Diabetes
So, exactly what is this condition and how do you know if you have it?
Well, first off, let‘s just say that this condition is more common in this country than you might have guessed. In fact, it‘s estimated that 25-35% of the United States population has some degree of insulin resistance. Now that‘s a scary figure when you realize that a large percentage of these people eventually develop type-2 diabetes, now an epidemic. What follows is a layman‘s explanation of how this condition develops.
Glucose is a simple blood sugar that serves as your body‘s main energy source. Every time you eat, your body‘s digestive process converts some of your food into glucose. This additional glucose enters your bloodstream. The hormone, insulin, which is made in the pancreas, is then released to transport the extra blood glucose into your cells to be used for energy creation.
Remember, lean cells create more energy than fat cells, by quite a margin. The food-to-glucose conversion process, along with the delivery of glucose to cells by insulin, works extremely well as long as your blood glucose levels don‘t ―spike up” too often or too high. When you choose your foods carefully and consume a diet similar to that recommended in my nutrition program, your blood sugar levels jump very little and remain within a narrow range, balanced by the action of insulin. Under these conditions, the pancreas is able to secrete insulin in small spurts throughout the day. This allows the pancreas to operate within its ― biologically comfortable” support zone, not placing much stress on it.
Moreover, by keeping insulin levels low, cell receptors that respond to insulin are not overstimulated. You can think of cell receptors as front-line ―molecular guards” that only accept visitors with the right credentials.
However, processed carbs—so prevalent in the American diet— require little time and digestive ―overhead” to be broken down into glucose and dumped into the bloodstream. Therefore, processed carbs place almost immediate demands on the pancreas to produce insulin in relatively large amounts. This happens because a healthy body inherently recognizes high levels of blood glucose to be dangerous and therefore does something about it, fast. So, bursts of insulin work to get blood glucose back to normal, safer levels.
When blood glucose levels spike often, two problems emerge. The first problem is that the pancreas has to pump out insulin beyond its biological comfort zone and with time can ― burn out” from being overtaxed. This can lead to diminished insulin production and eventually type-1 (insulin dependent) diabetes.
The second problem is that cell receptors eventually become desensitized to frequent, elevated bursts of insulin and therefore less effective at allowing proper amounts of glucose into the protected cells. In other words, these ―molecular guards” start turning away greater numbers of credentialed ―visitors” and glucose can no longer be transported into the needy cells as easily. This condition is called insulin resistance. It can and does lead to type-2 diabetes, formerly called non- insulin-dependent or ―adult on set” diabetes.
But glucose rejected by resistant cells doesn‘t just disappear. It either remains in the bloodstream, with time creating major problems in and of itself, or insulin carries it to fat cells where it is converted to fatty acids and stored for later use (and for all the world to see).
But why will fat cells accept glucose when lean, energy-burning cells won‘t? Because fat cells develop insulin resistance later than lean cells. This delay provides the body with a safety ― cushion” because excess blood glucose can be swept away to fat stores. So, even people with mild insulin resistance will be able to store fat easily—for a limited time, anyway — to protect against high levels of blood glucose.
With type-1 diabetes, the pancreas can no longer make sufficient amounts of insulin to do its job. If untreated, it may lead to neuropathies (nerve destruction), vascular deterioration (requiring amputations), blindness, coma, and even death. Do I need to say more about these ― conveyor-belt-to-living-hell” conditions? Type-1 diabetics must take insulin and should not play Russian roulette with poor diets loaded with processed carbohydrates.
On the other hand, type-2 diabetes can most often be avoided and even reversed. This is a milder form of diabetes that does not require exogenous insulin. Yet, it can lead to serious health consequences and even type-1 diabetes if not corrected. By the way, sufficient exercise is one of the best ways to reduce insulin resistance for life.
When insulin resistance prevents sufficient glucose from getting into the cells to produce energy, the common signs and symptoms include fatigue, mental fogginess, depression, and the inability to lose weight. Insulin-resistant people also complain of irritability when they miss meals. They crave sweets and caffeine.
If you‘re suffering from insulin resistance, you may have tried exercise and diet in the past but eventually became discouraged and quit because you couldn‘t lose weight. A typical sign of insulin resistance that correlates to high cardiovascular risk—especially in females — is a waist girth larger than hip girth.Now, going back to cortisol, the hormone that responds to stress. It does this by inducing your cells to release fuel into your bloodstream where it can be used by other cells, especially muscle cells, that need it to handle physically stressful moments—like having to jump out of the way of a car bearing down on you. But if stress causes the release of fuel into the bloodstream and the fuel doesn‘t have anywhere to go, then guess what? Insulin production spikes to escort the unneeded fuel out of the bloodstream and into fat storage, just as it does when we eat a meal high in processed carbs. Thus, the overabundance of cortisol leads to both insulin resistance and fat storage.
Prolonged, elevated cortisol levels not only induce insulin resistance but also leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone produced by white fat cells. One of its functions is to tell the brain to decrease food intake. The more fat cells that are present, especially in certain parts of the body, the more leptin is produced to notify the brain that starvation isn‘t an issue with this particular body. This is how leptin helps to regulate fat storage. It carries the satiation message.
However, brain-cell receptors can become insensitive to leptin, just as body cells become insensitive to insulin. If this happens, the potential for obesity rises dramatically because leptin‘s satiation messages aren‘t reaching home. Hunger pangs continue even when additional calories aren‘t needed; extra sugar enters the bloodstream but can‘t be used by the cells; insulin stores the excess sugar as fat; leptin signals continue to spike to tell the brain to decrease food intake; the leptin spikes make brain-cell receptors for leptin even more insensitive; and the vicious cycle continues with hunger still present.
To make matters worse, if too much stress exhausts the adrenals and cortisol levels plummet, then hypoglycemia arises, inducing even more cravings. What a mess!
So, these vicious cycles are kicked off by stress, the over- consumption of processed carbohydrates, and the lack of enough exercise to lower insulin resistance. When these factors are brought into balance so that cortisol, insulin, and leptin can function as intended, the result is a leaner, more energetic body.
The overall impact of prolonged stress on human physiology and metabolism is beyond the scope of this report. I‘ve only touched on those factors related to body composition and weight management. Other detrimental factors include thyroid disorders, liver detoxification dysfunction, digestive disorders, suppressed immune function, decreased bone density, depression, insomnia, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular disease.
Bottom line: prolonged stress is perilous. We need to learn how to reduce it or handle it better. That‘s what a wellness lifestyle is all about.
We have found through clinical experience and research that there are 5 Keys To Defeating This Disease. If all 5 of these keys are in place, you can kiss diabetes goodbye.
Key #1 – Control Of Insulin Surges
For a majority of patients, their diabetes comes as a consequence of abnormal insulin surges. When you eat a heavy carbohydrate meal, you dump a bunch of blood sugar into your blood stream. Insulin is then released, signaling to your cells, to move the blood sugar out of the blood stream and into the cells.
When there is more blood sugar than the cells can handle, your pancreas which still see’s excess sugar, releases even more insulin. As a defense mechanism your body begins to down-regulate or de-sensitize it’s receptors.
Over time your cells are very resistant to insulin and it is difficult to move sugar out of the blood stream and into the cells, resulting in increases of blood sugars till it reaches the point it is called and labeled diabetes.
Precisely controlling the amount of blood sugar that hits the blood stream, thus avoiding huge surges of insulin is key #1 in reversing this cycle.
Key #2 – Re-sensitizing Of Insulin Receptors
Once we stop the insulin surges we must re-sensitize your cells to insulin. The more responsive
your cells are to insulin the easier it is to keep your blood sugar stable. Through exhaustive research we have put together some of the most powerful nutritional protocols available to do just this.
Key #3 – Stabilization and repair of Adrenal Gland Function
Your adrenal glands, two tiny glands that sit on top of your kidneys, are responsible for the production of a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is what is called a diabetogenic hormone, meaning it promotes increased blood sugar and therefore diabetes.
The proper diagnosis and functional assessment of your adrenal glands are essential in reversing diabetes.This key is almost always overlooked and will lead to failure if this aspect is not handled just right.
Key #4 – Identification and Removal Of Food Sensitivities
Many patients have unidentified immune sensitivities to foods. This leads to inflammation and destruction of the gastrointestinal (GI) barrier. Your GI barrier protects your body from bacteria, parasites, and other things as they are processed in your intestines.
The low grade inflammation created from food sensitivities also drives cortisol production, which we now know raises blood sugar. It’s a cycle. The food sensitivity creates inflammation, which stimulates cortisol production by the adrenals, which raises blood sugar. Without removing the food sensitivity the cycle will always remain.
Key #5 – Restoration Of Gut Barrier Integrity
Long term food sensitivities will result in a condition called “leaky gut”. This is when the cells lining the stomach become too far apart, allowing partially digested food proteins to pass into the blood stream and create inflammation. This starts and maintains the inflammation cycle mentioned above.
We are able to determine through special lab testing whether or not you have a Leaky Gut. If present we can design custom treatment protocols to heal the stomach lining and dramatically reduce the inflammation in your body.
Our hope in writing this for you is that you clearly see that diabetes can be reversed. That there is hope and this is completely within your control. The future with diabetes can look bleak, especially if not properly managed or you if you fail to deal the 5 Keys laid out in this report. If you do the right things then the future can be bright. In fact diabetes doesn’t have to be part of your future at all.It is not easy, but with the right guide, armed with the right expertise it is quite easy to do. This is our passion and what we do day in and day out. We want to invite you to our office for a complete diabetes case review and consultation. It will allow us to completely review your case and determine if and how we can help you break your “diabetes chains.”
So, You Are Probably Wondering, “This Makes Sense; Why Doesn’t Everybody Do It This Way?”
One reason is they just do not know what they need to know. They are seriously behind the times, living in the1940s, 50s and 60s. They are using an outdated treatment model, which does not work for the majority of people.They may not understand how to use natural supplements and nutrition.
The second reason is that they and the insurance companies do not consider this comprehensive approach and testing “medically necessary.”
“Medically necessary” SHOULD include everything that is going to contribute to your having a better functioning body and that will help you feel as good as you possibly can.
I know you may not have experienced this before, but it should truly be a “partnership” when you work with a doctor on your health condition. That is the way it was always intended to be, but unfortunately, medicine and healthcare in general have moved away from that.
We help our patients start to feel better because we are thorough and look for the right things. We do not cut corners. This is your health on the line…
Believe me, after you have seen some truly desperate people suffering with diabetes problems with your own eyes BUT later heard them tell you how much better and happier they are now that they can go through a day without worrying about the development of cardiovascular disease, permanent eye damage and loss of vision, loss of limbs, painful neuropathies, kidney failure and ultimate loss of life, AND listened to them thank me for finally doing what needed to be done to find out how to help them… well, then you understand how “medically necessary” this kind of approach really is. No matter what any insurance company, drug company, or doctor thinks to the contrary.
Now, the goal of the case review, consultation, and any initial testing is to tell us what your functional imbalances are, and lifestyle factors are contributing to your problem. Then, we can design a powerful, all-natural, step-by-step approach to helping you achieve your desired results.
We will most likely have many things we have to work on. We will create a treatment program that is going to support the abnormal physiological shifts we measured with our testing. Often, we have to support one dysfunction before we can effectively support the others.
Have you ever put together a piece of furniture or a kids toy without reading the instructions because you thought you could figure it out on your own? Then, you reached the very end, realized you missed a step, and had to go back and take everything apart because you missed that one little piece? Supporting these functional hormone, and metabolic imbalances has to be done in the proper sequence. We look at everything we need to do up front, so we know what sequence we have to take to help you.
“How Am I Going To Know My Body Is Improving? Will This Even Work For Me?”
We are going to know we are making the functional changes we desire because, after treatment, we will be repeating the tests we used to determine our specific plan of action. This is absolutely necessary.
We cannot just spend time and effort finding out what is wrong and then just hope our natural treatments made the changes. We have to re-test, make alterations in treatment protocols, and re-test again. Not that you will not be feeling better as we make these changes, but we have to measure your changes so we keep moving toward the goals we set together.
In reality, we may have to make a series of changes before you start “feeling better”, but at every point, we have labs to guide us. We will SEE that things are changing in the right direction. Based on your specific case, we are going to have a schedule of your re-tests, so we can make corrections and know when we need to move on to the next thing. Sometimes, we cannot effectively support a particular physiological process until we normalize another first. A lot of doctors will not to do this for you. Like I said, most natural medicine is based off of NO testing, minimal testing, or the wrong testing. Mainstream medicine is going to shove hormones and antidepressants at you no matter what the labs say, so there is not a lot of testing done on that end either.
Functional changes take time. Remember, our job is not to give you a pill and hope a symptom goes away. Our job is to take a step back, look at the big picture, and systematically support your physiology.
The reason you may not have gotten help yet is because no one dug deep enough, was willing to listen, understood your problem, or took the time necessary to make the changes.
What If This Doesn’t Work For Me?
If you are sitting here reading this report, you know that your present approach to helping your diabetes problem is not what you want. Honestly, I could teach a six year old to give the current treatment you are getting. I would tell them to look at the diabetes lab test, and if the fasting glucose is high or the HgA1c is high then give them Metformin. Of course, I am being sarcastic, but that is exactly what I hear and see from patients every day.
You deserve better than this. You deserve to have a doctor who listens, who understands you, who is willing to do what it takes to work with you and help you, regardless of what some out of touch doctor or insurance company thinks because it does not matter what anybody else thinks.
What matters is that you are still suffering, and you need someone who is going to treat you correctly and help you.
The number one factor that determines success or failure with a case is how closely the patient follows my recommendations. If you do the things I prescribe, then you are going to go down the road you have been wanting, probably for a long time, which is moving toward “normal” again.
You are reading this report because you are one of the smart few who wants to take control of your health and do what it takes to help your body get well. Nothing else matters when your health goes “South.” I love working with patients like you because you are willing to sit here and learn about your problem, listen, and make the changes necessary to get your health back on track and to get back to the business of “living well again”.
What About Cost?
Our initial review of your case and consultation is $287* (but if you schedule your case review within 2 weeks of requesting this report, it is only $87). As we discussed, our unique approach steps out of the “medical box,” so we can do what is needed and take the time necessary to help “YOU”.
Until we know the specifics of your case, what tests we need to run, and how long we anticipate it taking to make the functional changes we need, there is no way to say what the cost is going to be.
But rest assured, I am on your side. My job is to work WITH you, to help you improve your condition. My job is to deal with all of the specifics of your case, listen to you, and work with youto make the proper functional changes.
Everything can be done in steps. The first step involve a case review and consultation, so we can get to the specifics of your case.
There is always a way to make it work out financially. We have financing options available through our office as well as many different payment options to help minimize your immediate out-of-pocket expenses and limit the impact on your financial situation. We can make it work.
Your main concern should be getting well and feeling better again. You have the rest of your life in this body, and you can be energetic and healthy enough to enjoy it, or suffer with the fear of losing your health permanently. The smartest choice is to get to the root of the problem and not get “passed through” the medical system, being treated like you do not know what you are talking about or feeling.
Ask yourself if you can afford not to get treated. If you are honest with yourself, the answer is you CAN’T. The diabetes hormone replacement is making up for decreased internal insulin production or insulin resistance., but it does not address your underlying problem. Diabetic drugs often create long-term side effects and greater problems in the future.
You can be one of the fortunate few who receive the proper support and treatment and live well,
OR you can continue feeling like you do now. The choice is yours, but the correct option is staring right at you. It’s here. I believe you know ‘in your gut” that this is what you need to do.
“I’m Ready To Get On Track, and Start Feeling Good Again, What Do I Do?”
At this point, you should realize that your diabetes condition has not been managed properly or completely and that your current diabetes treatment is not going to get you where you want to go. You really should be asking, “How can I get this type of functional support approach? How can I get the kind of treatment you describe?”
“How Does Consulting With Your Clinic Work?”
Every new client we work with begins with a case review and consultation, as previously mentioned. When you schedule your case review and consultation, we will send you our comprehensive case history and dietary & nutritional questionnaire. This will allow us to learn everything about your case and your medical history. We will also review all your previous lab tests (if available).
We will have you complete the questionnaires prior to your scheduled consultation. Also, bring your previous labs to our office for this visit. This allows us to have adequate information to thoroughly review your case during your scheduled appointment. This makes our time together extremely efficient and productive for you.
Your case review consultation will take approximately 30-45 minutes. During that consultation, we are going to thoroughly discuss your case and also talk about the dietary, lifestyle, and supplemental changes we can make to positively impact your condition.
We are also going to discuss the specific lab tests that will give us the needed information to uncover the mechanisms (causes) of your condition. We will direct you to the proper local labs and have the results sent back to us.
How we continue our relationship after our initial consultation and follow-up appointment is completely up to you. After we have completed our initial consultation and made our initial set of recommendations, we will decide on our next step.
Following your initial consultation we will schedule you for a complete Wellness Evaluation followed by a Report of Findings. At the Report of Findings we will summarize your findings and make recommendations if we accept your case.
If we move forward, we can work together, as a partnership, to truly improve your condition. Just remember, we are going to work at your pace and take the necessary steps to help you reach your goals.

5 Ever so simple secrets to reversing your diabetes
Get Your Health Back!
Roy Hall MD
If you have diabetes and you have said to yourself, “if I could just loose some weight, get my sugars down, and stop my diabetes medications” then this might be the most important report you read all year. Here’s why…
Have You ever said any of these things?
- “I don’t know what to do!”
- “I can’t seem to loose weight. I am always hungry.”
- “I am so tired all the blasted time.”
Imagine you could wave a MaGic Wand…
Imagine you could wave a magic wand and “my weight is down. I am off of my meds. I am so alive again. Family life is so totally different now!”
Why Should You Listen To Me?
I am a medical doctor specializing in Functional Medicine. You are why I went to medical school and did all of my training. We have folks coming into our clinic taking 2 and 3 diabetes medications. In a matter of a few months, their weight is down; their sugars are in the normal ranges; and best of all, they are safely stopping their diabetes medications! You can’t imagine how great that makes me feel to see that progress in another’s life. I never witnessed this transformation in the traditional clinic setting.
“In two months, I lost 14 pounds and shed my 2 diabetes pills.” AT of Billings, MT
What you’re going to discover…
In this report you are going to discover:
- 4 important hormones to balance to help with sugar metabolism.
- How to loose the weight and decrease your appetite to a normal level without drugs, laser, or surgery.
- How to increase your energy without stimulants.
Each of these are equally important if you want to reverse your diabetes, and lower your blood sugars so you can experience a life without the medications, without the need to check your sugars, and with spunk and vitality. But we are going to cover each of these points in order.
4 important hormones to balance to help with sugar metabolism.
This is important for you to know because if these hormones are not balanced, weight loss and sugar metabolism is out of balance.
You need the hormones of the thyroid, the adrenals, and the sex hormones all in a optimal range. These are vital for control of sugars and energy metabolism of the body. Some of these hormones directly interact with your appetite center and when out of balance, people are hungry. Other doctors often tell you to eat less, but you cannot due to the persistent intense hunger you are suffering. Other of these important hormones act on setting the metabolic rate of the body. When these hormones are low, your body is metabolically slow. Speeding up the metabolism can bring amazing results in energy use.
So here’s what you need to do so you can balance the hormones. You must have these appropriately evaluated with the correct lab tests. We use both blood testing and saliva testing for these hormones.
“I used to worry that I might not be a round due to the diabetes worsening to take care of my family, and now I know I will be around and can provide the love and finances needed.” SW, Wyoming
Okay, now you have the first step to solving the reversing of your diabetes. So let’s move to…
How to loose the weight and decrease your appetite to a normal level without drugs, laser, or surgery.
So why do you need to know how to loose the weight and decrease your appetite? When over-weight, the metabolic rate is often slowed. This is in part due to less activity levels of over-weight folks. With weight loss, people simply move faster, and move more. But the real trick here is to decrease the appetite, so the at the weight loss can occur. The American Diabetes Association promotes a diet which promotes a bigger appetite. Simply changing the type of foods we eat, increasing the amount of good fats and proteins and lowering the amount of carbohydrates will lessen the appetite, promote fat loss, and lower the blood sugars. Carbohydrates actually promote insulin resistance and raise the glucose levels, as well as at the appetite.
Imagine eating good foods! Having butter and bacon with your breakfast! Eating good quality animal and plant fats/proteins actually makes our foods taste better, and they fill you up more easily quenching your appetite.
So now you know a secret to eating, to loosing weight, that many doctors have yet to learn.
“I increased my eggs, started using butter again, after many years being told not to eat butter, and my weight began to melt away!” MF
Now let’s move on to:
How to increase your energy without stimulants.
This is important for you to know because when you increase your energy, you sleep better, you move better, you loose fat and gain muscle. In addition, your cardiovascular systems’ health improves.
There are certain foods and supplements which do increase the cellular energy levels and improve the over-all energy. Remember what it felt like to be a teen-ager who could go and go forever? This can be in your future, in the very near future.
We have one lady in our program who does have multiple sclerosis. When she came to use, she was on average returning to the energy department at one of the hospital almost twice a month due to fatigue and weakness. She began to learn how to eat properly and had her hormones evaluated and optimized. Now, she is thinking more clear, more energetic, and having so much more fun in life with friends and her husband.
“I never thought it possible to have energy like I did several years ago. I thought I was simply growing old, there was no hope of reversal.” MF.
So now you know three action items for lowering your appetite, lowering your glucose, getting more energy so you can with further coaching safely reduce your diabetes medications, and this is a good start.
So what do you do next?
If you’re looking the fastest way to reverse your diabetes, I want to personally help you get the results you desire. So, I’ve put together a very special no cost, no obligation very limited time offer just for you.

Neuropathy Myths Revealed
If you’ve ever wanted to just get instant relief from the pain associated with peripheral neuropathy then this may be the most important message you’ll ever read…
Because I am going to show you how to get instant relief from pain that will allow you to return to a normal life. You’ll be able to walk on carpet again with bare feet, regain feeling in your fingers and toes, and start living a full and happy life without having to stop everything because the pain, numbness, and loss of balance is unbearable.
Have you been suffering from numbness in your hands and feet? Has there been a recent history of nerve damage? These and other indicators may not be as random as you once thought. Peripheral neuropathy is a nerve related problem that affects many and causes pain or loss of sensation. Many are told by their doctors that there is not a cure for neuropathy and that they will just need to take pain medications that cause damaging side effects or just live with the pain. This special report will cover the treatments that work and pull the rug out from the treatments that don’t work. Let’s start with some background information on neuropathy.
What is neuropathy?
The term neuropathy refers to the nerve damage caused by conditions such as diabetes, chemotherapy, cholesterol medications (statin drugs), genetic factors, infections, vitamin deficiencies, spinal stenosis, brain damage, and a host of other conditions. Because the nerves are used by the brain to communicate with other parts of the body, any area of the body can be affected by neuropathy. The affected area could include the joints, muscles, internal organs, and skin, or a combination of these areas of the body.
Any damage to the nerves can result in a variety of symptoms and related issues. Neuropathy can affect any of the nerves throughout the body; however, it does not refer to nerve damage that affects the spine or the brain. It is also known by a number of other terms such as diabetic neuropathy and peripheral neuropathy.
What Causes Neuropathy?
One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes. In fact, as many as half of the people diagnosed with diabetes will also suffer from neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is the term typically associated with the type of neuropathy that is caused by diabetes. Although it can affect any of the nerves in the body, diabetic neuropathy typically affects the nerves in the hands and feet most severely.
Diabetes is a common condition that has reached almost epidemic levels in the industrialized world. Diabetes is a chronic and system-wide disease that results from the body’s inability to properly process glucose, also known as blood sugar. This is often because the body lacks the correct amount of insulin that is required to break down the glucose into elements the body can use.
Diabetic neuropathy is the most common serious complication of diabetes. Yet, it can be easily prevented and its progress slowed with proper nutrition, a healthy lifestyle and specially formulated treatment options for managing the pain.
There are a number of other causes of neuropathy as well. These include the following:
Cholesterol medication (statin drugs)
Degenerative Disc Disease
Exposure to some types of toxins or other kinds of poisons
Contact with a pesticide, black mold, or other neurotoxin
Environmental toxins in the work place or home
Too much aspartame (neurotoxin) as in diet colas
Tumors that exert pressure on the surrounding nerves
Trauma to the nerve from an auto accident, for example
Extended pressure on the nerve
Repetitive movements such typing which can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
What Are The Side Effects of Neuropathy?
Depending on the type of neuropathy, there can be a wide range of pains, numbness and side effects. In most cases, the side effects generally start in the extremities such as the hands and feet. Without successful treatment, the side effects can continue unabated and begin to affect other, more widespread areas of the body. Many times, the progression from the extremities to the rest of the body is slow. Sometimes, however, neuropathy can move rapidly throughout the body.
The following side effects and pains are often seen in those people who have neuropathy:
Clumsiness and weakness when moving
Urination difficulties when trying to maintain control
Burning, tingling, and numbness in the hands and feet or both regions
Dizziness when standing
Unable to feel textures or temperatures
What Are the Different Types of Neuropathy
There are a number of different types of neuropathy. More than 100 types of neuropathy have been categorized so far. Peripheral neuropathy tends to be used by physicians as an umbrella term for all types of neuropathy.
The following are just a few of the more than 100 types of neuropathy:
Peripheral neuropathy is termed as nerve damage that is located in the nerves that are on the outside of the main nerves. Peripheral neuropathy damages nerves in your feet, legs, arms, and hands. Peripheral neuropathy is also called sensory neuropathy and generally affects the feet and legs with the most severity.
Diabetic neuropathy is a frequent side effect seen in people who have diabetes. It is typically characterized by numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. Pain in the hands and feet is often noted as well. In more severe cases, complications can be seen in other bodily systems as well. These include the kidneys, urinary tract, heart, digestive system, and blood vessels.
Cranial neuropathy affects the nerves that are joined at the brain. These nerves control the sensations of taste, hearing, and sight. As a result, there are often many complications of the eye.
Charcot’s joint, or neuropathic arthropathy, affects the stability of the joints. This type of neuropathy frequently affects the feet which can eventually result in the inability to walk.
Autonomic neuropathy affects the nerves that control the more automatic functions of the body. Difficulty controlling urination, frequent urinary tract infections, erectile dysfunction, and digestion issues are most commonly found in this type of neuropathy.
Commonly Affected Areas of the Body
Although neuropathy can affect any part of the body, it most commonly affects the extremities. The extremities are defined as the hands and the feet. Many forms of neuropathy begin in the feet before moving onward throughout the rest of the body. In other words, left untreated there is typically a progressive worsening of the condition.
Similarly, the most common organ that is affected by neuropathy is the skin. Typically, the condition progresses from the inside out with the skin being affected first then the internal organs are eventually affected if the neuropathy is allowed to continue its progression unabated.
Usually neuropathy is a slow moving yet progressive condition; there are some types of neuropathy, however, that progress at a much quicker pace. Fortunately, when proper treatment is implemented as quickly as possible, the effects of almost all types of neuropathy can be slowed a great deal. © Copyright 2017 Mountain Health Functional Medicine
How Is It Diagnosed?
Most people discover the presence of neuropathy during a doctor’s visit for one of two reasons. They are seeing their doctor to either check the progression of their diabetes or because of complaints of side effects of their diabetes.
Diagnosing neuropathy can often be problematic since it can mimic other conditions. In addition, there are no laboratory tests available that specifically pinpoint the presence of neuropathy. Because neuropathy is a symptom instead of a disease itself, it often takes a variety of tests to determine both its extent and its presence.
Some tests and procedures a doctor might use to determine if a patient has neuropathy include the following:
Extensive medical history
Complete physical examination
Neurological examination that includes tests for muscle strength and tendon reflexes, for example
Blood tests for kidney, thyroid, and liver functions
Blood tests for blood sugar and vitamin levels
Electromyography that tests the electrical signals that are being received by the nerves
Nerve biopsy, although this test may not show nerve damage in all instances
CT scan or an MRI to check for tumors, herniated disks or other conditions
In spite of the number of tests that are available for physicians to use to diagnose neuropathy, it is often simply a matter of trying various treatments to determine if one is effective in relieving symptoms. For this reason, treating neuropathy can be both problematic and frustrating.
What Can I Do to Prevent or Reverse Neuropathy?
There is much that can be done to prevent, or lessen, the severity of neuropathy. In many cases, when the underlying cause of neuropathy is addressed, the effects of neuropathy are significantly reduced. For example, if a person with diabetes loses weight, watches their diet carefully, and exercises moderately, the nerve damage that is often associated with diabetes will likely be diminished considerably.
By being proactive with treating neuropathy at the first sign of symptoms, the progression of the disease can be slowed or even halted. This will help to ensure that more invasive procedures and treatments are not necessary. In addition, this strategy will help to diminish the pain, numbness, and tingling that are commonly felt by people who suffer from neuropathy.
Maintaining a certain level of physical activity will help to prevent, or lessen, the effects of neuropathy as well. Swimming is a relaxing exercise that does not cause undue stress on the nerves or other sensitive areas of the body. Walking is another physical activity that can be performed by almost anyone.
It is important to implement lifestyle changes when a person has a chronic disease such as diabetes. This is doubly important when there are serious side effects involved as well such as diabetic neuropathy.
Reducing the amount of cigarettes smoked will go a long way toward improving the health of a person with diabetic neuropathy. Quitting tobacco smoking altogether is an even better idea for someone who is serious about improving the status of their health.
Eating a diet that is rich in vegetables and fruits and that focuses on less meat is a great step to make to improve a person’s overall health. Equally important is to keep a careful record of all the sugars and carbohydrates that are eaten every day.
In addition, gentle exercise that includes simple stretches is the optimal physical activity that helps to strengthen muscles while protecting compromised and damaged nerves. Swimming is another exercise that is gentle yet effective for strengthening muscles.
Because numbness of the feet is common in people who have neuropathy, it is important to check the condition of the feet daily. This will ensure that the feet do not have any cuts or other blemishes that could become easily infected without proper care.
It is imperative to reduce the pressure that is put on the nerves, particularly those nerves of the hands and feet. For that reason, it is wise to avoid any cross legged seating positions. It is also a healthy idea to avoid leaning on the elbows whenever possible. Avoiding tight fitting socks, stockings, and tights will also ensure that the nerves of that particular part of the body are not exposed to needless pressure.
What Are the Treatment Options and Which Ones WORK?
The first course of action a physician usually takes in managing the complications of neuropathy in a patient is prescribing medication.
There are many people, however, that find medication is not right for them. Either the medication their physician has prescribed for them does not work adequately or they find that the side effects of the medication are so severe that they are almost as bad as having neuropathy in the first place.
Many people discover that using both medication and alternative treatment methods provide the best management of pain and other symptoms. These alternatives could be as simple as using a neuropathy cream designed to provide soothing topical relief to those areas of the body that most need the pain relief to those more complex methods of relief such as hypnosis.
Some types of medication a doctor might prescribe for treating neuropathy are:
Over the counter pain medications are typically tried as a first course of action to manage the pain often associated with neuropathy. These can be effective for mild cases but generally don’t have much effect on more serious pain.
Prescription pain medications such as those containing codeine. These prescriptions pain medications are often used only as a last resort due to the likelihood that people will become dependent on them. They can also wreak havoc on the one’s body.
Anti-seizure medications such as Topomax, Lyrica, Dilantin, and others are usually used to control the seizures caused by epilepsy. There has been success, however, with using such medications when treating neuropathy as well. This is likely due to the medication’s ability to suppress the actions of the affected nerves. Unfortunately, these also come with severe side effects and can be extremely costly.
Lidocaine patches are infused with lidocaine. Lidocaine is a topical pain medication. The patch can be applied in the area of the most severe pain up to four times daily. This helps numb the pain but does not help to regain feeling and use.
Antidepressants, such as Cymbalta and Pamelor, have been successful in treating the pain associated with neuropathy. Much like how the anti-seizure medications work to suppress the actions of the nerves, antidepressants act to suppress the chemical responses to pain that the brain and spine receive.
Prescription Remedies Overview
While there are a number of prescription remedies that offer some relief for the effects of neuropathy, using these often comes with a price. The side effects of these medications can be pretty severe.
Even the almost benign over the counter pain medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen can have serious side effects when taken on a long term basis. Prescription pain relievers such as those in the opiate family, like codeine, can become habit forming so care must be used when taking them.
Anti-seizure medications can, likewise, have serious side effects. Some of these side effects, such as memory loss, dizziness and drowsiness, can seem fairly harmless. They can, however, make
it difficult to perform those tasks that require prolonged concentration or a wide range of movements. In addition, driving while on these medications can prove to be a difficult chore. Antidepressants have their own set of side effects that can often make it difficult to choose between taking the medication and suffering the side effects of neuropathy. Dizziness, constipation, nausea, drowsiness, and a decrease in appetite are just a few of the possible side effects of antidepressants. A very serious side effect that can be sometimes seen in people who take either anti-seizure medications or antidepressants is an increase in suicidal thoughts and mood swings. For this reason, the person taking the medication, as well as those people to whom they are close, should be aware of any mood swings that are unpredictable or any increase in the amount of suicidal thoughts. The pros and cons of this approach must be weighed very carefully. These should be considered as a last resort since there are so many effective treatment options available. Unfortunately, the medical community has been conditioned to treat everything with prescription drugs; that is why so few people know that there ARE additional treatment options available.
There Has To Be a Better Way … What Other Options Are There?
In addition to the traditional route of prescribed medicines, there are also a variety of different herbs, vitamins and essential oils that can help provide relief from the symptoms of neuropathy. The list compiled below is, by no means, exhaustive. However, a few of the notable natural remedies that have been shown to provide relief include:
Vitamin B-6: These supplements often have a positive effect on the symptoms of neuropathy.This should be taken as a B vitamin complex for the maximum in effectiveness.
Vitamin B12: The most common form of B12 used in supplements is called Cyanocobalamine(Cobalamine). The body must convert Cobalamine to Methylcobalamine in order to get adequate levels of Methyl B12 into the blood system. As the body gets older, it loses its ability to convert Cobalamine to Methylcobalamine and the body absorb as little as 1% of the amount taken.
Methylcobalamine: This is the form of vitamin B12 that can be directly utilized by the body and is easily absorbed.
Vitamin B1: Benfotiamine is a new type of vitamin B1. It is fat-soluble unlike Thiamine B1which is water soluble. The result is that Benfotiamine can dramatically increase the levels ofB1 in the blood stream, and effectively decrease or eliminate the symptoms of neuropathy.Studies have shown Benfotiamine to be absorbed 360% better than other, more common forms of vitamin B1.
Folic Acid: This supplement helps your cells utilize vitamins and minerals and is essential in the nerve healing process.
Vitamin B2: Effective in relieving many diabetes related ailments.
Capsaicin: This naturally occurring substance found in hot peppers binds with a specific protein that actually blocks the reporting of pain to the brain! Capsaicin has been used very successfully to treat the pain of peripheral neuropathy but many feel the benefits are outweighed by the burning sensation that it causes.
Aloe Vera Juice: Sufferers of peripheral neuropathy have been shown to benefit strongly fromAloe Vera’s blood enhancements. Since aloe reverses “sludge blood” and boosts circulation to extremities, those suffering from peripheral receive massive benefit from this amazing plant.
Arnica: Derived for the Arnica Montana flower native to Europe, this unique extract has been clinically proven to open capillaries and facilitate the transport of blood and fluid accumulations through a dilating action of subcutaneous blood capillaries.
St. John’s Wort: Used successfully by many people to ease nerve pain.
Evening Primrose Oil: Can slow, and even stop, the progression of diabetic neuropathy
Geranium Oil: This oil has been clinically proven to help ease the effects of nerve damage. It is used in a variety of commercial products aimed at treating the effects of neuropathy.
Other Essential Oils: There are several additional oils that have been successfully used to treat the pain additional complications associated with neuropathy.
In addition to prescription medications and more natural remedies, there are other therapies and treatments for diabetic neuropathy that people have found success with. Some of the other strategies that can provide relief from the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy include:
Acupuncture: This is an ancient form of medicine that involves placing specialized needles at strategic points around the body in order to address the pain felt by the patient.
Anodyne (Infrared Low Level Light) Therapy: Improves circulation and relieves painful symptoms by stimulating the release of nitric oxide in the bloodstream. The light penetrates 3to 5 cm deep into body tissue, reacting with hemoglobin and freeing nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes dilation of nearby blood vessels and increases circulation, potentially bringing pain relief to affected areas.
Hypnosis: This has been successful for some people seeking relief from the pain.
TENS: TENS is an acronym for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. The procedure involves sending brief and gentle electrical impulses to block those nerve centers that are the most painful for the individual patient. Just note that this therapy only works when in use and has no lasting therapeutic benefits.
Rebuilder Electrical Therapy: This therapy does the opposite of TENS by opening up damaged nerves in order to restore normal nerve signals to the brain.
Massage: This can be soothing to the skin and, when combined with capsaicin based neuropathy cream, it can provide a high level of pain relief.
So What Is the Best Option For Me?
Generally, it will require some trial and error to find the best pain relief option for you. Everyone that suffers from neuropathy does so in a unique way and that’s why it is best to experiment and try various options. The majority of patients will see the best results from the combination of a topical treatment and natural food supplements. This approach allows the body to heal itself naturally from the inside, as well as the outside, and avoid causing further damage from harmful narcotics.
Neuropathy creams can be a soothing solution for many of the side effects created by neuropathy. Infused with capsaicin, neuropathy creams help to relieve pain, numbness and tingling.
How Can I Know if a Supplement Will Work For Me? It is important to find a supplement that can be backed by clinical studies. Neuropathy affects many people and many doctors have devoted their lives to finding treatment solutions. We can give you a list of clinical trials per request. Mountain Health Functional Medicine has combined years of research and the world’s most advanced ingredients into our Neuropathy Relief Formula.

Tips for Sufferers of Neuropathy
Suffering from a serious and chronic condition such as diabetes, and its equally serious and chronic side effect of neuropathy, can be difficult to cope with on a day to day business. There can be much frustration as doctors perform test after test and try to rule out other conditions.
Equally frustrating can be the search for relief from the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. The tingling, numbness, and pain that are commonly found in the hands and feet can be difficult to control without resorting to seemingly constant medication changes. In addition to that frustration is the fact that many prescription medications have such severe side effects it is sometimes difficult to justify continuing the search for an effective one.
A combination of several treatment methods along with some more natural approaches such as neuropathy cream and a regiment of good lifestyle choices may provide better relief for many people rather than only relying on prescription medications.
Paying special attention to foot care is vital to maintaining the health of a person who has neuropathy. Daily inspections of the feet should be performed. These inspections should focus on preventing problems or treating any blisters, cuts, or other abrasions found before they turn into more serious infections.
Because it must be applied to their skin, using neuropathy creams gives people who suffer from diabetes a prime opportunity to carefully look over the condition of their hands and feet. This is an important step in self-care as many people who suffer from neuropathy report a diminished sensation of touch in those affected areas. This puts sufferers at a higher risk for infection in those extremities.
Avoiding tight socks or stockings will help to relieve
pressure on already sensitive feet. Cotton socks allow air to circulate while providing a soft and comfortable fit. A special hoop that is semi-circular in shape, and available in most medical supply stores, can help to ensure a more restful sleep by keeping blankets off sore or hot feet. Eating choices Eating a low fat and high fiber diet is particularly important for a person with neuropathy. More fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains should be implemented. The daily fluid intake, focusing on water, should be increased to avoid dehydration and improve digestion which may be sluggish if neuropathy has begun to progress to the inner organs. Some people may find it beneficial to eat several small meals throughout the day rather than three large meals. This can help to maintain a constant level of blood sugar while also enabling the person to feel fuller for longer periods of time. Coupled with a short walk after each meal, it is a simple yet effective change that can improve the quality of life for those who suffer from the effects of diabetic neuropathy.
Being physically active helps people to lose weight and stay limber and flexible. In addition, regular exercise helps to make the heart and lungs stronger. For a person who has been inactive, however, it is important to start exercising slowly.
Walking is a low impact way to exercise. Other low impact exercises that minimize the stress to the body include yoga and swimming. An ideal program of physical activity combines a few different types of exercises in order to stave off boredom and help to work different areas of the body.
Having a disease such as neuropathy can be hard to live with day after day if you don’t take steps to ease the pain. It is important that people with neuropathy do not let their illness define them.
Of course, the initial diagnosis can be overwhelming as there are so many new things to learn and think about. Making lifestyle changes, for example, is important. It is also important not to try to implement them all at one time, however. A good place to start is to eat only one helping of meat at dinner and, if a second helping is desired, eat more vegetables instead. Consider taking a five or ten minute walk after dinner, if that can be managed.
Be sure to not focus solely on the neuropathy. Go out to see a movie with friends or have a movie night at home. Chat with friends and family over the phone or online. Enjoy a good book or a good book on tape. Combine a doctor’s appointment with lunch out with a friend afterwards. Or invite that friend in for a cup of tea while chatting about memories.
The activity itself is not important, what is important is to make sure that fun is still a part of the life of a person who has neuropathy. Such relaxing and fun activities can help to ensure the focus is not solely on coping with a chronic condition but also on enjoying a fulfilling and rich life.
So … What Should I Do Next?
Don’t lose hope that you will find a way to treat your symptoms and pain. Through trial and error, you will find a solution that works for you. In my case, I decided to take action and work with a group of specialists to create a treatment option that would work for me as well as those around me.
I’ve tried all of the above treatment options but did not get any results. Are there any other options?
While lifting weights in the gym, I developed a compression neuropathy injury to my finger and developed such severe numbness and pins and needle like pain that I couldn’t even type on my computer. Most doctors tell neuropathy patients that there is no cure that you just have to live with it for the rest of my life. I had lost hope and gave up on trying to find relief until I combined a special type of electrical therapy with the class III THOR Laser therapy.
After just a few weeks of treatment, the pain and numbness is gone and I am back to typing this book as we speak! Depending on the type of neuropathy you have, I have found that a combination of a variety of treatments centered around the world’s most powerful class III THOR Laser is that solution. Most class III lasers put out between 0.1 – 1999 mW of photonic energy. Our patented and unique THOR Laser puts out a continuous or pulsed energy which is 5-10 times more powerful than all the other lasers out there. And, it’s 100% pain free! This means that our laser gets deeper and more powerful penetration which equals superior and faster clinical results for you. In fact, we have found 90% of our patients (who did not respond to other forms of treatments) finally got relief after going through the Neuropathy Laser Relief Program. I sincerely hope that you too can find a way to relieve the pain and discomfort. If you would like to find out if you are a candidate for the Neuropathy Laser Relief Treatment, then contact our clinic at (406) 969-6310 to find out if you qualify. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email us at: info@royhallmdcom or by calling us at (406) 969-6310.
