Neuropathy and Gluten

Monday, 29 Nov 2010 11:16 AM


Question: What do you recommend for controlling the advance of degenerative nerve disease?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
In many cases of undiagnosed neuropathy, the cause is gluten sensitivity. The best test to diagnose this is the tissue transglutaminase (tTG) and the anti-gliadin antibody test. Other food allergies can either cause the problem or worsen it, so get a full-spectrum food allergy test.

A number of supplements have shown benefit. They include: high-dose B1, pyridoxal-5-phosphate, riboflavin5-phosphate, moderate dose niacinamide, natural (mixed) tocotrienols and tocopherols, acetyl-Lcarnitine, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and DHA. Especially important is avoiding excitotoxin food additives (which play a major role in neuropathy pain), inflammatory oils (corn, soybean, safflower, sunflower, peanut, and canola oils), and extreme heat.

Hot baths will make the condition significantly worse; cool baths will improve the symptoms. Eat mainly vegetables and few meats, avoid gluten-containing breads, and drink white tea several times a day. Avoid indoor use of insecticides.
