Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy means damage to the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS is a huge part of your nervous system that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body—and back again. It’s a two-way street. Peripheral neuropathy interferes with the normal communication back and forth.

Because there are many kinds of peripheral nerves—each with a highly specialized function—damage to them may cause many different symptoms: pain, numbness, tingling, prickling, burning, pins-and-needles, sensitivity to touch, sensitivity to cold or heat, weakness even paralysis.

Here is the most shocking news to most doctors and their patients…Peripheral Neuropathy does not only happen to diabetics.

And here’s the really bad part about peripheral neuropathy, the part that confuses most doctors and prolongs your pain and suffering…

Just because you feel symptoms in your feet doesn’t mean that is where the problem is. The problem could be the nerves in your feet, but it could also be anywhere along the path from the feet to the parietal lobe in the brain where sensory information is processed.

Simply put, if the parietal lobe becomes weak you’re going to feel the same symptoms as peripheral neuropathy, but there is nothing wrong with the peripheral nerve. They are actually caused by a weak parietal lobe.

To make things worse, the real cause of your symptoms may be that your immune system is attacking your peripheral nerves and damaging them (autoimmune attack). And furthermore, certain patients will express a ‘cold’ feeling in their hands and/or feet along with numbness. This may be caused by a thyroid condition that has not been properly diagnosed and obviously not properly handled.

Most people suffering with symptoms of peripheral neuropathy have a combination of interrelated causes. Taking a medication like Neurontin and crossing your fingers and hoping it’s going to get better is not going to determine the cause. We Offer A Unique Non-Drug Approach

We offer an integrated NEURO-METABOLIC approach. Combining laboratory based nutritional support with neurological brain based therapies we attack the CAUSE of your peripheral neuropathy. Why not restore normal nerve communication, function and health by healing from the inside out?

The painless, noninvasive treatment has provided relief for many patients without the use of medications such as Lyrica, Neurontin, Cymbalta and others.

No matter what the condition, it is imperative that we perform a thorough and comprehensive exam to determine the exact nature of the patient’s condition.
