Nitric Oxide is a gas that your body manufactures to function properly. As you may or may not be aware, I put my peripheral neuropathy patients on a Nitric Oxide Booster (Circulatory Health Formula). Today, I thought it would be fun to dive a little deeper and explain why it is so important to elevate your levels of Nitric Oxide.
In 1998, three pharmacologists from the United States (Ignarro, Murad and Furchgott) were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for discovering that Nitric Oxide is a signal molecule inside the human body that is responsible reducing blood pressure, as well as, protecting the heart and the entire cardiovascular system.
Since 1998, the scientific community has advanced our knowledge of Nitric Oxide and its importance.
Here is what has been discovered:
- Nitric Oxide is necessary for nerves to function properly
- Nitric Oxide is essential for memory, learning and information recall
- Dementia, including Alzheimer’s is associated with reduced levels of Nitric Oxide
- Nitric Oxide reduces inflammation throughout the body
- Nitric Oxide protect against blood clots
- Nitric Oxide lowers the risk of stroke
- Nitric Oxide lowers risk of heart attack
- Nitric Oxide protects the skin from sun damage and regulates blood flow
- Nitric Oxide is responsible for regulating blood flow to our organs
Often dubbed the “magic anti-aging molecule”, This molecule is in highest concentrations early in life and as it drops off, the aging process accelerates.
Is it becoming obvious, why I focus on boosting Nitric Oxide (Circulatory Health Formula and Light Therapy), in my treatment protocols? It directly affects the circulation and the nervous system, the two areas that are most directly associated with healing nerves and the surrounding tissues. In Functional Medicine, we know that everything in the body, effects everything in the body. It all works together. The health benefit of this molecule extends to every part of your body.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a breakdown of normal tissue that results in nerve interference. To stop neuropathy, you must build new healthy support tissue in the areas where the nerves are malfunctioning. Nitric Oxide opens small blood vessels to allow fresh blood where it is needed the most. Fresh blood carries the building blocks of life, oxygen and nutrients. Building strong support around the weakened and overstimulated nerves is the key to successfully overcoming peripheral neuropathy.
Don’t let your diagnosis complicate what is actually happening to cause your neuropathy. For example, we know that diabetes, chemotherapy, heart issues, toxins and many other factors may be named as the “cause” of your peripheral neuropathy. These conditions all result in the same outcome, weakened tissue that supports nerve messages. The symptoms of diabetic neuropathy may be the same as the symptoms someone experiences with peripheral neuropathy from chemo or any other reason.
Work with your doctor to make the lifestyle changes necessary to manage your health challenges. If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy, it will be necessary to focus on overcoming the healing roadblock in the areas where your symptoms are present.
