How was Salba discovered?
Sometimes my leg's feel like I've ran a 1,000 mile marathon. In other word's my leg's feel tired, they also throb and ache.
Other times the bottom of my feet feel like they are on fire, then sometimes my feet feel like they just got out of an Ice Box.
I've been told I have Neuropathy in both legs and that is 'Any diseased condition of the nervous system' according to the Webster's Dictionary.
I was wondering if Salba might benefit this condition as well? Any relief is better than none!
Hi there! You're from my neck of the woods, I see. My parents have lived in Twinsburg for over 25 years. :)
How was Salba discovered? That's an interesting question. Salba is a seed grain and has been around for centuries. You may know the name better as Chia seeds. Do you remember those chia pets all those years ago?
Chia seeds are usually the black variety although they can be both black and white. The Salba seeds are basically the same grain but they have been cultivated to only be the white grain.
Some believe the white Salba (Trademarked name) is more nutritious than the black Chia seed, but it's up for debate. They are both pretty good, and the claims may be biased for marketing purposes. :) That's always difficult to determine.
Anyway, I honestly don't know whether or not the Salba would help relieve
your symptoms of neuropathy or not. It's certainly worth a try as it is a whole food and very nutritious, so it's not going to do any harm.
From what I've read about neuropathy, it usually has some underlying cause. Do you have any other health condition that may have triggered the neuropathy that you know of?
I'm a big believer in giving the body as much nutrition as possible (preferably in the form of whole foods) to help aid the body in the natural healing process.
I generally recommend whole foods like the Salba and the Garden Trio
, along with AIMega
to really give your body as much support as possible.
Nutritional supplements in the form of vitamin tablets, etc., are all well and good (I use them myself), but our bodies are designed to absorb the vitamins and minerals and nutrients from the food we eat.
So, whole food supplement powders provide all the benefits of raw vegetables, freshly juiced at the peak of their freshness. You can't really get much better than that.
I'd certainly give those a try for a few months to see if you can support your body enough to help reduce or eliminate your painful symptoms. Like I said, it can only do your body good and not harm.
Let me know if you decide to give them a try and if you find them beneficial to you personally. To your good health!
