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
- Comments from experts.
- Suggested dosages,
and safe upper limits
- Possible drug
- Best times to take.
- A specific nutrient
- Much, much more.
DR. GREEN'S COMMENTS: If you
peripheral neuropathy, learn how to manage the condition in a
healthy, natural way. Nutrients for Neuropathy outlines a
nutrient program specifically designed for people living with peripheral
neuropathy. If you have Diabetes Mellitus,
learn how to help prevent, or at least slow down the progression of diabetic
peripheral neuropathy. Act now
to help yourself lead a productive and fulfilling life.
Here's what the Experts Say about this book:
for Neuropathy is a must have for professional and lay book shelves.
It gives you all the information you need to combat this condition."
Earl Mindell, Ph. D., author of the famed Vitamin Bible
recommend Mr. Senneff's new book, Nutrients for Neuropathy, for anyone
seeking a natural, healthy approach to treating this serious condition.
The program he outlines can provide a great deal of help to those afflicted with
peripheral neuropathy. Read it!" Julian Whitaker, M.D., founder of

What It Is:
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.
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
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
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.
