Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has signed legislation banning smoking and vaping in enclosed public areas, including bars, restaurants, hotels, stores, public restrooms, parking structures, public transit vehicles and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The ordinance includes a definition of smoking that includes e-cigarettes and vaping, so all forms of smoking will be banned starting January 2, 2020.

Dental Work & Surgery Nerve Problems?

It is common for people to experience different nerve damage symptoms after dental work. This is especially true of dental surgery and implants.

During the procedure, the nerve can be damaged. Yes, it most probably will get better in a few months if it isn’t extensive damage.

But are you willing to put up with numbness, and pain, tingling, etc. for 6 months? Why not give your body a head start in restoring your nerve health.

Are you being sold “snake oil”?

I was watching a documentary about medical myths.   One really got my attention.

What is snake oil?  Snake oil is actually Chinese medicine.  It is created from a snake and used to help many things including sore muscles.  it appears that this was brought to American by the Chinese workers on the Trans Continental Road.  It was a huge back breaking job.  They used snake oil to help with their sore muscles.

It became popular.   But in the 1916 there was a salesman who was selling this.  Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment, the only Western produced snake oil known to have been examined.   It was tested and found not to include any snake oil. It a shoddy substitute.   He got arrested.

So the press had a field day and “snake oil” was now used to describe anything that  was deceptive telling people it would cure their ills when it wouldn’t.  I’ve even heard the term applied to the various alternative medicines available for health.

Why do I ask if you are being sold snake oil?  Well the body needs forty nutrients to be able to create and sustain health.  if you don’t have one of these, you can create deficiencies which result in 100s of chemical reactions not happening  So, we take vitamins and minerals to make sure we get what we need when we know our diet isn’t sufficient.   Fake food is in itself “snake oil”  as they promise to give you nutrition but fill the box with chemicals and additives not needed by the body.

But, what about your supplements?  Are you taking fake nutrition?  Are you taking Whole Food VItamins, food based that actually use food to give you what you need. Or are you taking “snake oil”?   Are you getting laboratory created similar sort of vitamins made of petrochemicals.

Health Benefits of Food

Have you noticed that most health articles are concerned with stopping a disease that the person has – or attempting to prevent a disease – which is actually stopping disease before it happens. And it all sounds scary.

What about we take our attention away from just fighting disease and start working towards health to create a healthy body.

Do you want to stop gum disease and decay, or just have healthy teeth?

Do you want to stop an infection after one starts, or just have a healthy immune system that prevents infections from happening?

The list of things that a healthy body creates goes on and on. 

The body runs on protein, carbohydrates and fats and 40 other nutrients that cannot be made in the body. These are 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, 10 amino acids & the essential fatty acids. The nutrients you need that cannot be made in the body all come from food.

What do you use to build a healthy body? Food. Sometimes if you can’t get enough of the nutrients you need from food, you might have to supplement. But you would do that with whole food supplements, not the artificial type that is made in a laboratory.

There are diets for overall health as well as diets for specific health issues. See below.  But addressing an issue and then continuing to create health eliminates the need for special diets in the future. 

You should eat for your health, not your taste buds.

Improve your diet & eat wisely – this is the best and least expensive form of “health insurance”. Building health is a lot more fun than trying to stop disease.

Processed Food and Your Health

I have a quiz on my site to check on certain things that might stop someone from restoring health to their nerves.   One question is do they eat processed foods.

Actually, so many people say they don’t eat processed foods, that I begin to wonder if they know what that means.   However, what I want to communicate is that it is so important to read labels when buying food.  No, eggs, vegetables and meat are probably okay – well unless they come packages and then I would still check the labels.

Here is an article on checking labels…

A Non-Toxic Cleaning Product

Yes.  I never know how much cleaning made me feel tired and … well, I just didn’t want to do it.  It was the chemicals that I used.   Even when I bought brands in the health food store that were more natural then the many very toxic chemicals normally found on the shelves.

Here is an article on a Cleaning Product derived from a mix of essential oils.   I have used it myself and I enjoy using it.   It not only cleans well, but it smells great.

B Vitamin Deficiency and Neuropathy

B vitamins are the most important vitamins for nerve health. Once the nerve is damaged by the high blood sugars of diabetes, chemotheraphy, toxins, trauma, etc. etc. getting enough B vitamins is vital to building healthy nerves again.

But can a deficiency cause the condition?

Neuropathy can be a result of malnutrition caused by an unbalanced diet and by alcoholism . Alcohol does not allow the normal nutrients of the food you eat to be used.  It does not allow it to be absorbed and metabolized.  Thus, the person using alcohol winds up with malnutrition and the symptoms one normally observes as the result of heavy alcohol consumption. See Alcohol for more information.

Poor diet, vegan diet plans, gastric disorders, severely compromised immunity, etc. are just a few of the risk factors for vitamin B deficiency.

The main reason can be due to the lack of B12 in the diet. B12 deficiency can lead to a number of serious conditions and peripheral neuropathy is one of them. Usually this is more than just B12. These B vitamins work together.

Vitamin D. There is some thought that when a person has diabetes, his D levels go down and that might be a reason for the neuropathy. But that isn’t something that would on its own create the damage. It is the high blood sugars that lead to the nerve damage.

Many doctors after diagnosing someone with neuropathy will take blood tests to see if they have vitamin deficiencies. Because it is believed that neuropathy can be due to B12 deficiency, it is sort of reversed and the deficiency is then looked for.

Very often they can’t find a deficiency, however, the tests used are venous blood which is blood that is leaving the body. It doesn’t seem like a good test to determine what is in the cells. That is where it counts and where the deficiency would matter.

Healthy nerves can be determined as they do not burn, hurt or create coldness, etc. etc. If these symptoms are present the nerves are not healthy.

If the body had all the ingredients to build healthy nerves, they would by using up all the B vitamins and none would appear in the blood test.

However, often the B12 (and other vitamins) found in the blood can be due to laboratory created vitamins that the body cannot use. In fact, there are often a lot of deficiencies created by artificial vitamins found in “supplements” and processed foods. Have you ever seen “vitamin fortified” on a box? These are artificial vitamins made in the laboratory that the body does not recognize and will not use – and, in fact, it can “gum up the works”. See Natural vs Synthetic Supplements

Getting the right nutrients however will give the body what it needs to build healthy nerves again. Once the nerve is damaged it needs certain vitamins to build healthy nerves. An isolated B vitamin will not do that. It needs the various B vitamins to create health in the nerves. It is the nutritional support needed for neuropathy.z
