Are You a Candidate for Our New Neuropathy Treatment?

Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) is the term used to describe disorders of the peripheral nerves. Many people using statin pills: ‘cholesterol drugs’ will be affected by this under-recognized and mysterious malady.

Neuropathy

We need to think of neuropathy as any DAMAGE to the nervous system. Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects all nerves of the body from the brain, eyes and small nerves of the heart and digestive system, to the nerves in the hands, legs, and feet.

Peripheral Nerve Cells

The peripheral nervous system is made up of the nerves that branch out of the spinal cord to all parts of the body.

Peripheral nerve cells have three main parts: Cell body, axons, and dendrites (nerve/muscle junction). And part of the nerve can be affected, but damage to axons is most common. The axon transmits signals from nerve cell or nerve cell to muscle. Most axons are surrounded by a substance call myelin, which facilitates signal transmission.

PN Symptoms

Loss of reflexes, loss of strength, loss of sensation like numbness. These are rarely detectable to the patient, because the brain makes up the difference in the losses. Only after some time do the damaged and sick nerves develop the positive signs of neuropathy; tingling, burning, biting, stabbing, shooting pains.

Each patient will describe their pain in their own individual language of ‘pain’. This can easily confuse a doctor not trained in the recognition and treatment of these patients. So the patient usually continues at suffer, going from doctor to doctor, to stronger and stronger doses of pills until they are either completely drugged up and ‘out of it’, or lost in their own world of suffering.

Some neuropathies come on suddenly, others over many years. Some people are affected only by a weakness in the arms and legs which legs which leads to difficulty standing, walking, or getting out of a chair. The loss of sensation from the toes, ankles and feet contributes to patients not having a ‘good sense’ of where there feet are in space, touching the ground, and this causes them to fall very easily. These under-recognized sensory losses CAN ONLY be detected with proper clinical exam. This office has the necessary tools to uncover the underlying cause of this ‘silent’ nerve damage.

Some patients will eventually become unable to walk at all. Others start with a tingling, pin pricking feeling that turns into deep sharp stabbing pains and burning electric shocks. These debilitating problems can also be at their worst at night while trying to get to sleep, because the PAIN never goes away. In fact, once started IT ONLY GETS WORSE!!

Currently, ordinary medicine has NO cure for PN. The extremely powerful drugs dispensed to patients do NOT TREAT the NERVE DAMAGE! They numb the brain to numb the pain. Most patients can not tolerate a drugged existence but feel the have NO OTHER OPTION against this horrifying pain.
