Neuropathy is a complex and multifaceted medical condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide. It is characterized by nerve damage, which can lead to an array of symptoms, such as pain, numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness. Despite numerous advancements in treatment, neuropathy continues to be treated as INCURABLE and the treatments provided are focused on providing relief without addressing the root causes and attempting to CURE the problem. This symptom-based approach may offer temporary relief, but it falls short in providing any healing of neuropathy AND allows the problem to progress even further while disguising the damage that’s occurring. Using the SAME treatments that DON’T WORK and expecting a different result is INSANITY.
It is vital to explore and understand the three main causal components contributing to the development of neuropathy: metabolic, vascular, and neurological factors. By investigating these three components, it’s become possible to develop a comprehensive approach to HEALING neuropathy, moving beyond symptomatic relief and providing a long-term solution. In this blog post, we will discuss each of these components in detail, shedding light on the complex interplay of factors that contribute to neuropathy and highlighting the importance of fixing them for effective treatment and restoration of normal function.
Gaining an improved understanding of neuropathy and how conventional medicine, operating under the illusion it is INCURABLE (look for the heading, “No Cause, No Cure”). Clearly, Medicine is NOT equipped to provide actual solutions to the problem. You don’t go into the game with a Coach who doesn’t think you can win the game, the same is true with treating neuropathy. The purpose of our article is to provide a deeper understanding for individuals, like you, who are suffering with neuropathy AND give you the information necessary to help you with two things: regain hope there is a CURE and motivate you to take action.
Section I: The Three Causal Components of Neuropathy
In order to truly grasp the intricacies of neuropathy and its management, it is crucial to delve into the three key causal components that contribute to its development. By examining these factors, we can begin to address the root causes and work towards a more comprehensive and effective approach to treatment.
Diabetes: A significant contributor to neuropathy, diabetes disrupts the body’s ability to properly regulate blood sugar levels. The resulting high glucose levels can damage nerves, leading to diabetic neuropathy. It’s EXTREMELY important to note, you CAN have neuropathy BEFORE you are diagnosed with diabetes. A1C (glycated hemoglobin) testing is a much preferred method to measuring blood sugar and yet … Mainstream medicine continues to use fasted blood glucose as the primary test.
- Importance of blood sugar management: Maintaining optimal blood sugar levels through lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, is crucial in preventing and managing diabetic neuropathy.
Vitamin deficiencies: Nutritional imbalances, particularly a deficiency in vitamin B12, can cause nerve damage and lead to neuropathy.
- Identifying and addressing deficiencies: Ensuring a well-balanced diet and appropriate supplementation can help prevent and alleviate neuropathy symptoms.
Poor circulation: Reduced blood flow to nerves, often due to conditions like peripheral artery disease, can starve nerves of essential nutrients and oxygen, leading to nerve damage. Our office has also noticed that many patients have reported issues with varicose veins prior to developing neuropathy and it happened independently of diabetes; meaning, many of them were NOT diagnosed with diabetes.
- Strategies for improved circulation: Implementing a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, smoking cessation, and maintaining a healthy weight, can promote better circulation and prevent nerve damage.
Inflammation: Chronic inflammation can damage blood vessels and nerves, exacerbating neuropathy symptoms.
- Anti-inflammatory approaches: Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle, as well as using medications, when necessary, can help mitigate inflammation and its effects on neuropathy.
Nerve compression: Mechanical pressure on nerves, such as from a herniated disc or carpal tunnel syndrome, can cause nerve damage and result in neuropathy.
- Addressing compression issues: Early detection and appropriate interventions, such as physical therapy or surgery, can alleviate pressure on nerves and potentially prevent further damage.
- Our office has specially designed FDA-approved traction tables which gently and effectively reduce herniated discs and provide a PERMANENT solution for this problem. You can Learn More About Decompression Here.
Autoimmune diseases: Conditions like multiple sclerosis and lupus can lead to nerve damage and neuropathy due to the immune system mistakenly attacking the body’s own nerves. Certain medical interventions can also lead to these conditions, like the annual flu shot which has been known to cause Guillain-Barre, the body becomes hypersensitized and attacks the lining of the nerves leading to weakness and tingling in the hands or feet.
- Managing autoimmune conditions: Timely diagnosis and proper treatment of autoimmune diseases can help minimize their impact on nerve health and reduce neuropathy symptoms.
By understanding and addressing the metabolic, vascular, and neurological factors contributing to neuropathy, we can develop a more holistic approach to treatment. This goes beyond merely managing symptoms and works towards addressing the root causes, offering a greater possibility of preventing further nerve damage and improving overall nerve health. As we continue to unravel the complexities of neuropathy, it is our hope that these insights will lead to more effective strategies for managing this challenging condition, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for those affected by it.
Section II: Current Symptom-Based Treatments and Their Limitations
While there is a cure for neuropathy, symptom-based treatments are pushed by doctors because they operate under the assumption there is NO cure (which is 100% INCORRECT). The biggest danger with treatment of symptoms is the fact that neuropathy ALWAYS progresses. It’s not a question of IF it gets worse, it’s only WHEN and how SEVERE.
Over-the-counter pain medications: These can provide temporary relief for mild neuropathic pain but may not be effective for severe cases. Given the HIGH probability of addiction for opiods/pain-relievers, the risk is not worth the reward; especially, when there is a natural, safe and EFFECTIVE method for treatment available.
- Limitations: Potential side effects, tolerance, and dependence can limit their long-term use and effectiveness.
Prescription medications: Antidepressants and anticonvulsants are often prescribed for neuropathic pain, though they are not specifically designed for this purpose.
- Limitations: These medications can cause side effects and may not be effective for all patients, requiring trial and error to find the most suitable option.
Muscle Weakness and Mobility
Physical therapy: By focusing on strengthening unaffected nerves and muscles, physical therapy can help patients compensate for the weakness caused by neuropathy.
- Limitations: Physical therapy may not fully restore lost function or strength and requires ongoing effort to maintain improvements.
- In our office, physical therapy is combined with our 3 pronged protocol for neuropathy and gets EXCELLENT results.
Sensory Loss Management
Wound care: Due to the reduced sensation caused by neuropathy, patients must be diligent in monitoring and treating wounds to prevent infection.
- Limitations: This approach is reactive and does not address the root causes of sensory loss.
- Anodyne boots, used in our program, have PROVEN effects in accelerating wound healing.
- Rebuilder 300, also used in our program AND has gotten up to 74% relief in only ONE WEEK of treatment with some patients.
Despite the reliance of Medical System on these symptom-based treatments, neuropathy can actually be CURED using NATURAL, DRUG-FREE methods. The medical approaches fail to address the underlying metabolic, vascular, and neurological factors that contribute to the development of neuropathy. As such, the need for more comprehensive and targeted treatment methods were evident. By focusing on the root causes of neuropathy, we have found a protocol that works towards addressing the three components to not only manage symptoms, prevent further nerve damage and allow the body to heal itself. This shift in focus from MANAGEMENT to TREATMENT has transformed the lives of 1,000s of patients affected by this debilitating condition by allowing them to REVERSE and HEAL them of their neuropathy.
Unfortunately, our office is NOT able to accept all cases but we are able to complete a comprehensive 7-point sensory screening which lets us know if your case can be accepted. For cases accepted into the program, the success rate is 97%. Yes, you read that right, 97% of the people who enroll in the program and are follow the guidelines are successful in obtaining their goal of being pain-free and fully functional.
