Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy – Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy also known as CIDP is a rare neurological autoimmune disease. The immune system mistakenly attacks the nerve root causing inflammation and destruction to the fatty protective covering of the nerve fibers.
Symptoms of Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP Symptoms)
- Loss of feeling in the arms and legs
- Loss of balance and/or ability to walk
- Reflex loss
- Weakening of the arms and legs that happens gradually
- Tingling in the arms and legs
CIDP Treatment Options
Nutritional Therapy: a holistic nutritionist may be able to identify foods or environmental toxins that are creating an inflammatory response in the body and contributing to the inflammation and damage done to the nerves.
Heavy Metal Toxicity: One of the leading causes of neurological problems, and nervous system disorders. Working to naturally reduce heavy metal levels can prove extremely beneficial.
Heavy Metals Detoxification Tools:
- Celery Juice
- Spirulina & Chlorella
Detoxification: toxicity plays a huge role in disease… toxins can overwhelm and confuse the body, some can cross the blood brain barrier and affect the brain and nervous system, leading to neurodegenerative diseases and neurological issues. Detoxification is important for reducing inflammation, eliminating toxic irritants that could be harming the organs and systems and therefore plays a crucial part in helping the body heal.
BioEnergetics Balancing: Using energy to balance the cells of the body, re-establishing homeostasis. If the body is attacking its own nerves, balancing of the bodies nervous system, proteins, enzymes, immune system etc. could significantly help. Disease, specially autoimmune disease indicates an imbalance and malfunction of the bodies systems. Balancing can be incredibly beneficial specifically for autoimmune conditions.
Natural Antiseptics: to combat any organism that may be causing infection and affecting the nervous system (viruses are specifically problematic here.)
