Dr. Joel Wallach starts the show discussing peripheral neuropathies. Outlining the various types of neuropathies and explaining what causes the problem. Often caused by degenerative disk disease where the disks in the vertebrae become thinner pinching nerves. This leads to many problems such as tingling or burning in the hands and feet. Atrial fibrillation, tinitits and dry eyes can all be caused by the pinching of cranial nervers.Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a study from the Netherlands. The study found that boys diagnosed with ADHD and taking stimulant drugs who were also given omega 3 fatty acids say a reduction in symptoms. Previous studies have also found a link between omega 3s and reduction of ADHD symptoms. Other studies have found children diagnosed with ADHD had low blood levels of omega 3s compared to those without ADHD.Callers
