Although there’s no cure for Crohn’s disease, the Neuragenex protocol offers a holistic solution for managing the symptoms. We take a neurofunctional approach to pain management, which means we look at the whole person – not just their disease – to identify and address pain-causing factors.
Our protocol is designed to treat the underlying inflammatory processes associated with Crohn’s disease. We use a combination of modalities, including electroanalgesia, IV therapy, and lifestyle counseling, to reduce inflammation in the digestive tract and provide long-term pain relief.
The treatment solutions we use are safe and effective alternatives to surgical procedures and chiropractic care, both of which can result in severe complications and are not always effective. Additionally, our protocol avoids the use of pain medications, which can be habit-forming and often come with harsh side effects.
Keeping all of this in mind, the following are a few details about the treatment methods we use to help you manage the symptoms of Crohn’s disease.
Electroanalgesia For Crohn’s Disease Pain
Electroanalgesia is a form of nerve stimulation used to reduce pain. It works by sending high-pulse electrical currents through the affected area, blocking pain signals from reaching the brain and helping the body release endorphins, a type of natural painkiller. It’s also incredibly effective at reducing inflammation, which is why it is often used for Crohn’s disease.
Although electric nerve stimulation is used in other treatments, such as TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), electroanalgesia uses high-pulse currents instead of low-pulse currents, which allows for more effective long-term pain relief instead of just temporary relief.
Electroanalgesia is an FDA-approved treatment option that has been used for decades. However, it isn’t widely used by healthcare providers who prefer faster results – and will therefore often recommend surgery or prescribe painkillers instead.
However, surgery is often expensive, and painkillers don’t address the underlying causes of pain. While electroanalgesia does require long-term treatment (our protocol calls for two sessions a week for 12 weeks), it results in long-term pain relief.
IV Therapy For Crohn’s Disease Pain
IV therapy is an infusion of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that helps reduce inflammation and support healthy digestive function. In addition, IV therapy can also help boost energy levels, which can be highly beneficial for those with Crohn’s disease and other chronic health conditions known to cause fatigue.
Our IV therapy treatment is personalized to the specific needs of each patient, which we determine by carefully evaluating their bloodwork. We will then create an IV therapy solution based on the specific symptoms the patient is experiencing and any nutrient deficiencies we find.
Lifestyle Counseling For Crohn’s Disease Pain
At Neuragenex, we understand that there is no “one size fits all” approach to managing Crohn’s disease. This is why we offer lifestyle counseling to help our patients learn how to make long-term changes that will benefit their overall health and well-being.
Our lifestyle counseling sessions are tailored to each individual’s needs, and we cover topics such as nutrition, stress management, exercise, and more. We also offer resources and support to help our patients manage their symptoms and make positive lifestyle changes.
The goal of our lifestyle counseling is to empower our patients to manage their own health and take proactive steps to prevent the symptoms of Crohn’s disease from getting worse. By taking a holistic approach to managing Crohn’s disease, we can help our patients achieve lasting relief and improve their overall quality of life.
