Hi - I'm a newbie who has actually read all the BTD books and gave the diet a try several months ago, only to fall off the wagon after about a month. I was diagnosed with autonomic nervous system dysfunction last year and with small fiber neuropathy just last week (result of a skin biopsy) My main problems have been contracted muscles (continuously) from my neck to my lower back, including severe spasms with little movement. I've spent about 2 years on  muscle relaxers, pain medications, have frequent massage therapy, chiropractic treatments, stretching exercises, and every type of supplement & herbs that I read about that could be helpful for such muscle problems. The neurologist was stumped & hence ordered the skin biopsy which indicates that the small nerve fibers are apparently responsible for the muscle problems. I've been prescribed Cymbalta & Ultram to deal with the pain and hopefully relieve the muscle problems. In additiion, I suffer from asthma, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and arthritis in my neck & spine. I'm sick of the whole drug thing and always have nasty side effects, however, my search has not produced any natural approaches that have worked either. Every part of my body is in pain and is stiff - I'm desperate!

My question is - can nervous system disorders such as mine be helped by switching to the BTD? As I understand my disorders, these problems are really controlled by the brain.  Can such brain controlled problems be helped?

(I spent 15 years with a 'Fibromalgia' diagnosis until they completed the neurology testing.)

Doe anyone out there have or have had a similar nerve problem? I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks

I suggest you follow the guidelines carefully outlined in the health series book which best fits your needs.

check the NAP store, on line, and go to index........find the books published.

Open up your copy of Live Right 4 Your Type, and go to page five.  Read the bottom paragraph that begins..

Quoted Text
Here's another intriguing link that suggest a relationship between blood type and the brain.


I believe the BTD can help improve your overall symptoms of this diagnosis.  You may need to fine tune your diet even more, as outlined in one of the Health Series books, and make your diet 80-90% beneficials and the remainder neutrals, and identify any unusual food allergies that you may have.



Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Hi wisogirl,

I guess as a person with chronic/genetic peripheral nerve problems, I can honestly say BTD does not 'cure' me.  Neither will meds, nor any other diet.  I chose, many years ago, to use BTD as a necessity.  In the same way drinking water is necessary .... I do not choose an early death.

My personal intervention lies outside BTD ... even the protocols, but I also realize that my 'cure' is outside all contemporary medical approaches.  If I am gonna be sick ... it d*** well is going to be as simple a 'fix' as is possible.  There is not much I can do right now except hope, but I'm certain that on the 'cure-path' is BTD .... it is not perfect but it is not a useless diversion.

As for the pain - many people have been helped with MSM.  For many people their problems center on a faulty essential fatty acid intake ... for A's, B's, and AB's a trial with omega-6 - evening primrose oil helps tremendously.  0's seem to do best with omega-3 oils.  A supplemental regime of Lyprinol can assist.  Many others are keenly influenced by the season and find that a supplement of cod liver oil (during winter months) to be a big boost.

There is often a large problem of mercury contamination via tooth (amalgam) fillings.  Many/most of your problems could be here.  Such an undertaking is NOT easy and could take several years.
Are you ready to discover just how good life can be ....???????????????

dear wiscogirl fine to meet you here on this board,
may I give my 2 cents in asking you to go for the books of Dr. Sarno, like *mind over backpain and the divided mind *  those books ar marvellous and then I'd go for some Paba to, this is a B-vitamin; and have an eye on a product, named neuro-recovery from Solgar's, it works amazingly in such cases .
Wish you all the best

Have you tried going gluten-free?  Nervous system problems, both peripheral and central, as well as most of the other health issues you've listed (asthma, joint trouble) could be caused by celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

You could ask for a blood test on your anti-gliadin IgA, it can give false negatives, but it's worth a shot to see.  (That is the test that gastroenterologists pay no heed to for diagnosing celiac disease, but it's the most telling to a knowledgable neurologist) 3-6 months on the gluten free diet may be more telling.  It seems like a long time, but nerves are slow to show changes...so I'd give it a good long try.

Hi Again - Thanks to all of you for your suggestions.  I've had a rough few days, but have gone back over the BTD books and reviewed some of the sections that could be helpful for my situation.  

Thanks also for the reading suggestions - I will definitely check them out, and also for the supplement suggestions.  I've been on Omega 3's for about 6 months and on a B-vit supplement in addition to trying several different multi's.  I've also had the IgA test done by an endocrinologist and it was negative. Even though it was negative, I have been avoiding as much wheat as possible for several years.  The neuro-recovery supplement by Solgar sounds promising, so thanks alot for that suggestion.  I will definitely check it out.  

Thanks again to all for your help.  I wish all of you a happy, healthy '07!

Did they check IgG or IgA?

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/en.....iou+M%22%5BAuthor%5D

I believe Dr. Hadjivassiliou recommends testing antigliadin IgG, and if that is positive then eliminates all sources of gluten.

Another testing option, if you want a more sensitive test, is to go with enterolab's stool test for gluten sensitivity.  Since the reaction takes place in the intestines, and only a little of the signs of it seep into the blood, then a stool test will pick up on it a lot better and works even if you've been gluten free for a few months.  The best way to know is to try the diet, but for the amount of time it may be necessary, it would be nice to have some test results to back up your resolve...at least if you're like me and don't have a great deal of resolve in such matters

From Dr. D's Protocols:
************************************************
23. NERVE HEALTH PROTOCOLS
Use this protocol for 4 weeks.

BLOOD GROUP A

Methylcobalamin (Methyl B12), 1000 mcg: 2 capsules, daily, away from food
Choline bitartrate, 500 mg: 1-2 capsules, daily
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), 100 mg: 1 capsule, twice daily
Cortiguard (Brahmi Bacopa monnieri),  1-2 capsules, twice daily
*************************************************

And I also strongly suggest that you completely avoid all gluten, not just wheat.

Ditto on looking into getting any mercury in your teeth removed by a dentist that understands safe procedures for removing this toxin from your teeth without further poisoning your system even more.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
