This month, we will celebrate national neuropathy awareness week. A week that is dedicated to educating the public about the symptoms, causes, & treatments of neuropathy. It is a week that is all about educating those who might not be aware that they are dealing with symptoms related to neuropathy.

At Neuropathy Treatment Clinic of Oklahoma, we like to take a holistic approach to dealing with symptoms and pain related to Neuropathy. When taking a holistic approach, we don’t only focus on the symptoms and pain that you are experiencing but also take a look at the contributing factors such as: your social life, eating habits, daily activities/habits, occupation, finances and mental health.

Each of these contributing factors whether we realize it or not, takes a toll on our wellness because of the stress that each brings. Taking a holistic approach to wellness means looking at the whole man and making sure that each area of your life you are set up for success because when one area is suffering, it has an effect on all other areas of your life.

During your consultation, our medical staff sits down with you and creates a plan that will help you make better decisions whether it is with exercise, nutrition, or daily habits. Our team helps you plan out how to get to your end goal, by giving you resources to help you get there.

Taking a holistic approach simply means that we do not perform our treatments with any injections or put our patients on any medicines to help combat neuropathy. It has been said, that medicines other doctors are prescribing actually can increase the symptoms of neuropathy.

Exercising at least 10 minutes a day, working your way to 30 minutes a day helps combat the symptoms related to neuropathy. You want to make sure that you are only doing activities that you are able to do without putting any additional strain on your body.

At NTCO, within the holistic approach, nutrition is everything. You want to make sure that you are giving your body all of the nutrients that it needs. Below we have linked 3 recipes that are healthy, easy, fast, and take great.
