Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment Success

Today we are here with Amir, he came intoour office Valentine Chiropractic originally by iving by and seeing our our previousadsthe newspaper regarding Laser and Decompression treatments. He camewith Plantar Fascitisand came to realize after being examined that he really had Peripheral Neuropathy. He wentto Kaiser, tried to put hima cast for 4 weeks and he started to lose strength inhis legs, he was also on pain pills which were making him violently sick. He was lookingfor some other modality to help him, he felt there had to be something out there that couldhelp. I happened to be iving by your building and i looked and saw that you talked aboutbeing Gluten Free and Peripheral Neuropathy,

so I called and talked to your brother Leonard Valentine and had a good conversation and felt very comfortable that you guys couldhelp me with my chronic plantar fascitis. The pain I had was not justmy heels it wasthe whole bottom of my foot hurt plus my heel and Kaiser was telling me it could come fromyour back so they did back xrays, nothing showed up on my back xrays, so then theysaid it was my weight. It turns out it wasn't my weight it turns out I had another ailment,that needed to be treated and healed, so now since starting treatment which has been about2 weeks and the whole bottom of my foot and my heel that I'm not feeling any pain in.So this is the first time2 years that

you have gone 2 weeks without any pain atall? Correctthat's is phenomenal and being off pain pills for a month, that has beenthe first time2 years. What would you say to those people all around the world whosuffer with plantar fascitis or peripheral neuropathy? We work with people all arounddifferent states who suffer with this very same problem, we can help those people aslong as they are willing to reach out.

meyour program is wonderful for treatingand fixing people with Plantar Fascitis or Peripheral Neuropathy.

Social Security Disability and Type II Diabetes

Hi. This is Jonathan Ginsberg. I would liketo talk to you today about how I approach Social Security disability casesinvolving Type II diabetes. Type II is the typically adult onset diabetes.It is not juvenile or Type I diabetes. That's really a separate type ofegory but Type II diabetes. Of course, we're seeing a lot of that becauseof diet, obesity, that type of thing, and so a lot of people have it.Of course, since diabetes is fairly common judges see it a lot. Soturnthey expect more from claimants with diabetes.

So really what I'm looking fora diabetescase or what I think helps win would be several things. One is you shoulddefinitely be compliant with your mediion. Ideally, you'd be on insulin.It's much more difficult to win a case when you're on the blood sugarpills without something else. So typically for a diabetes only case I'm lookingfor an insulin dependent diabetic. Someone who is compliant with takingthe insulin. It's not good enough to say anymore I can't afford my mediionand so I don't take it all the time or I don't like the way I feel.You've got to take the

mediions on time. You've got to be compliantwith who put the diet. Typicallya Type II diabetes case, your will give you a diabetic diet. American Diabetes Association Diet willrestrict your calories and limit your sugar and simple carbohyate intake.Very important to be compliant with that. If I seea medicalrecord that my client is not compliant, that he or she is inking alcoholor is not compliant with the diet, that makes it much more difficult towin. I think judges are looking for cases where there is neuropathy whichis painthe nerve. Typically,

that is that numbness and tingling you'llfeelyour hands or your feet andor blurred vision which is the retinopathywhere the vision is being affected. The capillariesthe eye are beingdamaged by the blood sugar fluctuations. We're also looking for situations where diabeteshas been longlasting. 10 years, 15 years because as you know diabetesis a progressive disease and the damage from the blood sugar fluctuationstends to accumulate. So if you've been diabetic for four or five yearsunless you really didn't know,

you were not compliant, didn't have mediionsand had a lot of damage very quickly, judges typically are lookingfor cases where somebody had diabetes for a number of years. I think someof the other things that judges look for and I've won cases with, peoplewho need to take frequent bathroom breaks. Obviously, diabetes causesa frequent need to urinate, having a lot of bathroom breaksexcessof what is normal which might be twice a day. That can be a real problem ina work environment, especiallyan unskilled work environment.

So that's one of the things that I ask myclients to keep track of. Variations and wild swingsblood sugar.I've had people tell me that low blood sugar is actually more debilitatingthan high blood sugar because it causes confusion and it's more difficult torecover from. So if your blood sugar fluctuates and you cannot keep it ata certain level, that's probably a stronger argument than one where the levelis a little bit high. It's may be a 150 blood sugar 125, but it's worse whenit goes from 40 or 60 to 300 and back and forth and so forth. So that'swhat I look for.
