Nutrients for Neuropathy
Effectively Deal with Peripheral Neuropathy in a Natural, Healthy Way!
Using nutrient supplements, it is possible to halt or even reverse the progression of peripheral neuropathy in many cases! At the same time, you can often reduce or in some instances eliminate the need for medications with their frequent side effects. It is all laid out in the latest book by John A. Senneff, Nutrients for Neuropathy, a softcover book published in 2002. Here's what's covered in its information-packed pages:
- The supplements that work best, based on clinical studies.
- The most bio-available supplement forms.
- Comments from experts.
- Suggested dosages, and safe upper limits
- Possible drug interactions.
- Best times to take.
- A specific nutrient program.
- Much, much more.

Peripheral Neuropathy Explained
What It Is:
Peripheral neuropathy (PN), an affliction suffered by millions, is a disorder of the peripheral nervous system resulting from damage to the nerves' protective coating or from damage to the nerves themselves.
The peripheral nervous system is made up of nerve fibers bundled together in nerve trunks. They run from the brain and spinal cord (which make up the central nervous system) to other parts of the body. The fibers are shielded by a coating or membrane called the myelin sheath. Like wires protected by insulation, the coated fibers carry "electrical" impulses from receptors located in internal organs, muscles and skin back to our brain through our spinal cord. When an injury to the peripheral nerves or their protective coating occurs which interferes with the transmission of impulses from these receptors, one of two things (or sometimes both) occurs depending on the receptors and nerve fibers involved. Either the brain acknowledges and registers the abnormal transmission as pain or some other unpleasant sensation, or it prompts a response back to the muscle or organ from which the original impulse emanated. In the latter case, the response may result in decreased muscle movement or changes in organ functioning.
Sensory PN - the type experienced by most people - seems to occur initially at the extremities of the longest nerves furthest from the spinal cord and brain. Consequently the feet, being at the end of the line, are usually the first to be hit with pain and numbness. Frequently the hands are next. Over time the affliction can spread to ankles, legs and arms if the underlying cause is not addressed.
Speaking about causes, there are said to be more than 100 different ones. Diabetes is considered the most common, at least in developed countries. It is variously estimated that 30 to 65% of people with diabetes an PN to some degree or other.
Various toxins and metallic poisons (such as arsenic, lead and mercury), certain chemicals (especially solvents and some insecticides), excessive alcohol intake, vitamin deficiencies (particularly B12) or vitamin excesses (B6), other nutritional imbalances, and a number of drugs can all cause peripheral neuropathy. It can also result from kidney failure, liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, abnormal blood proteins, cancer (and even cancer chemotherapy), leukemia and shingles.
Certain repetitive activities such as typing can also be the cause of some neuropathies. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one example. This is a so-called entrapment neuropathy - a condition resulting from a nerve lesion at a point where the nerve is confined to a narrow passageway.
A tendency toward PN can also be inherited. A family history of the disorder increases the likelihood.
If a physician suspects neuropathy, thorough evaluation and testing may five clues to the probable cause and may suggest a course of treatment. For example, it is important to know whether the injury is to the nerve fibers themselves or to the myelin sheath covering them. Also, the severity of the injury can be established through tests.
A search for reversible causes is always important. For instance, it might be determined that a certain toxin in the blood, or a deficiency of vitamin B12, is the culprit.
Even when the cause of the primary neuropathy has been established, medical practitioners will sometimes wish to determine whether another disorder may be involved an co-exist with the primary neuropathy. This is particularly true where there is a frequent relationship between the two.
Importance of Early Action:
attention, the pain and other symptoms almost invariably gets worse.
Moreover, neuropathies often tend to advance in the body, causing more and more
areas to be affected. Also, if attention is delayed certain neuropathies
can become more difficult to treat. Consequently it is vitally important
that you see a medical professional at once if you experience pain or numbing
sensations, particularly in the feet or hands, or if you have noticed gradual
muscular weakness. Also, you need to educate yourself.
