"Peripheral" means around the outside of the body; hands, feet, arms and legs. "Neuropathy" means nerves that are diseased or damaged, that are found outside of the brain or spinal cord.
There are a wide range of causes of peripheral neuropathy and a conversation to discuss your health history and examination of the hands, feet, arms and lower legs are necessary to determine if a person can be helped through natural treatments. Most causes involve a reduction in circulation in the micro-capillaries.
• Diabetes / Pre-Diabetes
• Poor Circulation (micro-circulation)
• Spinal Stenosis / Spinal Arthritis
• Infections (viral or bacterial)
• Alcohol Abuse
• Liver/ Kidney Disease
• Several Medications/Pharmaceuticals
Peripheral Neuropathy is considered a degenerative condition, so it typically continues to get worse over time. Occasional tingling can escalate into unrelenting stabbing pains. Numbness can spread from the toes into the foot and up to the knees. Instability on your feet can lead to poor balance and increased risk of falling. Balance can require so much concentration that simply walking short distances can become fatiguing. Despite regular participation in balance and exercise classes, balance continues to worsen and frustration sets in. Neuropathy can even spread into the hands and arms, making everyday routines like dressing a chore. Sleep can be disrupted due to muscle cramps, burning or stabbing pains in the feet or legs. Strange feelings like you are walking on rocks when barefoot and your favorite shoes can be uncomfortable. Some neuropathy sufferers wear socks to bed year-round because their feet are always cold. Some can't stand the sheets on their feet because they are sensitive or feel too hot.
You may be experiencing one or more symptoms; any of which on their own can be debilitating and diminish your quality of life.
Unable to feel your hands or feet. Difficulty driving and loss of dexterity in fingers and toes.
Annoying tingling sensations that can be constant, or come and go.
Over-active nerves shoot randomly and without warning.
Commonly felt in the soles of the feet, burning/hot sensations make it uncomfortable to walk and disrupts sleep.
Uncomfortable walking in an open space. Unstable on your feet and have fallen or have a fear of falling.
Neuropathy sufferers now have natural options available that are proven to be effective in reversing the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. It is possible to heal damaged nerves, stop the pain, regain normal sensations and improve balance. The level of relief and degree of healing depends on individual health factors and their commitment to doing the treatment. In most cases, significant recovery from neuropathy can be achieved with an in-home treatment program. An examination is necessary to determine if you are a candidate for natural treatment, as many health factors must be considered.
In the past, people suffering with peripheral neuropathy were not offered a real solution to heal damaged nerve fibers. Medical Doctors and Neurologists typically prescribe medications to cover the symptoms. Anti-seizure meds; Lyrica, Gabapenton, Neurontin, Anti-depressants; Cymbalta, Amitriptyline, Nortriptyline and others, Painkillers; Oxycodone, Tramadol, Fentanyl, and others, but nothing to heal the damage and improve the condition.
Most of the people that attend our seminars and become our patients have been told before that they can't be helped. Listen to what some of them have to say...
"My feet burned day and night, in fact, they burned so much at night that I couldn't sleep. Luckily enough, I found Dr. Scott. I was a little skeptical about him doing what others hadn't done. Since I started on the treatment, my feet have become quite comfortable."
"After Chemo, my toes and into my feet were totally numb. I hadn't felt them for at least a couple of years and I was staying close to the walls so I wouldn't fall... Two weeks after starting treatment, I noticed the feeling coming back and I haven't tripped once since then. I am amazed to be getting the feeling back in my feet and toes, because everybody said there was nothing you could do for this."
