Can Peripheral Neuropathy be Cured?

Can Neuropathy Be CURED?

Peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to peripheral nerves, often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet. It can also affect other areas of your body. People with peripheral neuropathy generally describe the pain as stabbing, burning or tingling. In many cases, symptoms improve, especially if caused by a treatable condition. Medications can reduce the pain of peripheral neuropathy. But we are more interested in a CURE FOR NEUROPATHY, not just masking the pain.

Manage Health Conditions

For many people, neuropathy is caused by health conditions such as diabetes, chemotherapy, alcohol or vitamin deficiencies. It is important to correctly identify the health condition causing your symptoms and then get the appropriate support and management from a healthcare provider.  Once the cause of your neuropathy is being managed, then it is possible to address the nerve damage that is causing the symptoms.

Repair Damaged Nerves

The painful and frustrating symptoms of neuropathy are the result of damage to nerves. The first symptoms are caused by damage to sensory nerves and over time damage begins to affect nerves that control muscles. 

To fix this nerve damage, the body must have the necessary nutrients to protect against further damage. These nutrients help to fight off the effects of high blood sugar.  Next, it is necessary to manage painful symptoms. It is possible to do this using targeted nutrition therapy. This will allow you to continue with healthy active living and allow your nerves to repair themselves over time.

Be Proactive

After the recovery of damaged nerves, it is important to be proactive and use a preventative approach to neuropathy. This means to be on top of managing the health condition that caused the neuropathy symptoms, but also working to keep your nerves healthy. This can be achieved through good frontline management of blood sugar along with regular physical activity and making sure your nerves are protected from future damage.
