Peripheral Neuropathy: Alternative Treatment Options

By Richard Hiler, DABCN

Peripheral NeuropathyIn the United States alone, neuropathy affects nearly 20 million people, and the mainstream medical community doesn’t offer much advice on viable treatment options. The Latin word neuropathy means nerve disorder—this nerve damage happens because the small blood vessels, which supply blood and nutrients to the nerves, becomes impaired. When the nerves are no longer fed nutrients, they either die, or their signals to the brain become restricted and ineffective.

Neuropathy is commonly associated with diabetes, as its customary for nerve damage to have occurred in individuals with high glucose storage. Still, neuropathy can also be attributed to chemotherapy, injuries, autoimmune diseases, compressed spinal vertebrae, cholesterol medication side effects, a buildup of toxins, and vascular disease.

Symptoms of Neuropathy
• Tingling
• Numbness
• Burning
• Sensations of cold/hot
• Stumbling
• Impingements
• Electrical vibrating sensations
• Falling/Loss of balance
• Lack of strength
• Decreased range-of-motion
• Muscle cramps
• Joint inflammation

Neuropathy Causes and Treatment
One of the main causes of neuropathy is diabetes. In this case, high blood sugar damages various organs within the body and has a severe adverse effect on nerves. This nerve damage happens when the blood supply is limited. The lack of brain signaling from the nerve endings makes it difficult for a person to feel pain in their feet, legs, and arms in some cases that are affected, so often injuries and these disorders are overlooked. This syndrome is called peripheral diabetic neuropathy.

Because of this nerve damage, there is a risk of developing ulcers on the feet, ankles, and legs. A wound may not sound overly alarming to most people, but peripheral neuropathy ulcers can be life-threatening. When they are small, they often go undetected due to the lack of feeling. If a patient delays treatment, non-healing ulcers can lead to amputation, strokes, heart attacks, and severe infections that can spread systemically throughout the entire body.
