Do You Experience Neuropathy Symptoms?
Are you suffering from the effects of peripheral neuropathy? Symptoms such as sharp, electric-like pain, numbness, tingling, burning and tingling, balance issues and difficulty walking? If you are like most of the 20 million Americans who suffer from neuropathy, they experience muscle weakness, sensitivity to touch, and their pain often keeps them up at night. While neuropathy can have hundreds of causes, the most common are uncontrolled diabetes, side effect from chemotherapy, vitamin deficiencies (B), toxin exposure, alcohol abuse, physical trauma, and infections.
Management vs Treatment for Neuropathy
Unless the cause is uncontrolled diabetes, then obviously getting blood sugar under control can help with the neuropathy progression and some symptoms, but it does nothing to heal the damaged nerves. In fact, none of the conventional treatment approaches attempt to heal the damaged nerves; symptoms are “managed” by anti-convulsant drugs such as Lyrica, or other pain drugs which can cause more problems with their side effects. These treatments attempt to manage the pain, but do nothing to help the damaged nerves heal.
Neuropathy is very Misunderstood and Ill-Educated
Interestingly enough, the majority of the patients whom I see for neuropathy tell me they have never had a thorough exam to test the severity and help determine treatment options. They tell me they are surprised they never got this type of exam from their general practitioner or even their neurologist. I perform a detailed neuropathy exam because I want to know how severe their symptoms are. I want to understand how it’s affecting their life. For many of my patients, it is a huge quality of life issue – affecting sleep and well-being as well as inhibiting their ability to walk, drive a car, or enjoy living a normal and pain-free life. I find it very gratifying to watch my patients improve and begin enjoying their life again.
How I Treat and Assess Individual Neuropathy Cases
How do I do it? I use a comprehensive approach that targets the nerves themselves- focusing bringing more blood flow (thus healing nutrients) to the damaged nerves while teaching them how to fire again. The great thing about our treatment protocol, besides that it can actually REVERSE neuropathy in many people, is that the technology is theirs to keep and they can do treatments in the privacy of their own home at the convenience of their schedule- not mine.
Beginning Steps to Normal, Pain-Free Living
One part of our comprehensive protocol is a specially designed neuropathy light boot that increases circulation and reduces pain and spasms. The blood vessels surrounding the damaged nerves are also damaged (often damaged first, resulting in damaged nerve), and this well-researched, specially designed infrared light technology actually helps heal the damaged vessels to regrow. This process, along with targeted supplementation which increases circulation and helps nerves heal, helps the damaged nerves to regenerate as well. We combine this with a footbath also used by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America that actually helps teach the nerves how to fire again. I have seen this comprehensive approach actually reverse neuropathy conditions, as I do re-exams at follow-ups to evaluate a patient’s progress.
The good news is that if you have neuropathy, it doesn’t mean you have to suffer. You now have a choice with our home care neuropathy protocol. Check out one of our neuropathy seminars to learn more or come in for a free consultation to see if you’re a candidate.
