A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Neurofibromatosis
I had a question the other day about neurofibromatosis.
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder of the nervous system.
Mainly, it affects the growth and development of nerve cell tissue.
NF is identified by café au lait spots (patches of tan or light brown skin) and neurofibromas (soft, fleshy growths) on or under the skin.
Enlarged and deformed bones and curvature of the spine may also be present.
Occasionally, tumors may develop in the brain, on cranial nerves, or on the spinal cord.
More than 50% of people with NF also have learning disabilities.
Neurofibromatosis is often inherited, but 30-50% of people newly diagnosed have no family history, and it can arise spontaneously through a mutation in genes.
Once this change takes place, the mutant gene can be passed on to future generations.
There’s no cure for neurofibromatosis.
Treatments focus on controlling symptoms.
There’s no standard treatment and many symptoms, like café au lait spots, don’t need treatment.
Often, the symptoms of NF are mild and people who have it are able to lead full and productive lives.
Sometimes, however, pain and deformity can lead to significant disability.
To deal with neurofibromatosis it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Cat’s claw boosts your immune system and has anti-tumor properties (don’t use during pregnancy).
*Other beneficial herbs include barberry, burdock root, dandelion, milk thistle, pau d’arco, and red clover. These herbs purify your blood, stimulate liver activity, act as natural antibiotics, and generally help healing (don’t use barberry during pregnancy).
*A tea made of blue violet, catnip, gotu kola, rosemary, white willow or wood betony is effective in relieving nerve pain.
*Experiment with essential oils to treat pain. Try jasmine, juniper, lavender, peppermint, rose, rosemary, and thyme.
*Eat a diet consisting of 50% raw fruits and vegetables, organic whenever possible. Nuts, seeds, whole grains, and low-fat yogurt and yogurt products also should be included in your diet.
*Don’t eat animal protein (eat soy protein instead), dairy products (except for yogurt), processed and packaged foods, salt (sea salt is okay), sugar, white flour, or white flour products. When you eliminate dairy, be sure to get calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D from other foods or supplements.
*Eliminate any and all hydrogenated, trans fats, deep-fried foods, margarine, and fast foods.
*Get regular exercise.
*Learn relaxation techniques.
*Consider a liver and/or colon cleanse.
*Consider acupuncture, energy medicine techniques, hydrotherapy, etc.
*Have a chiropractic assessment.
*Eliminate toxic exposures, both food and environment.
*Avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, soda pop.
*Maintain a healthy weight.
*Understand your medications and possible side effects.
*If you follow a vegetarian lifestyle or low caloric intake, it is essential to ensure proper intake of protein, B vitamins and essential fats.
*Add Performance for essential electrolytes.
