What is Neuropathy?

What is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is usually short for peripheral
neuropathy meaning a disease of the peripheral
nervous system. Strictly speaking however,
neuropathy is any disease or condition that affects
any part of the nervous system. Symptoms of
neuropathy often result in numbness, abnormal
sensations called dysesthesias and allodynias that
occur either spontaneously or in reaction to
external stimuli, and characteristic form of pain,
called neuropathic pain or neuralgia (burning pain)
that is qualitatively different from the ordinary
nociceptive pain which someone might experience
from stubbing a toe or hitting a finger with a
hammer which is initially, intense pain but subsides
shortly after the trauma or insult has passed.
Neuropathic pain is usually perceived as a steady,
burning and/or pins and needles and or electric
shock sensations. The difference is due to the fact
that ordinary pain stimulates only pain carrying
fiber nerves conversely neuropathy patients
symptoms result 
from firing both the pain and non pain, touch,
warm, cool) sensory nerves in the same areas
producing signals that the spinal cord and brain
don’t normally expect to receive. 
So What are the causes of peripheral neuropathy?
Diabetes in patients over 50 years accounts for
1/3, constant use of statins, continuous
inflammation from improper diet, chronic wear n
tear mechanical trauma (sciatica), infections,
leprosy, immune dysfunction/suppression due to
chronic use of meds HIV, Chronic chemical
exposure. Most of the neuropathies don’t manifest
overnight but take time to slowly
desensitize/demylinate the nerves which in the
geriatric population means decrease balance and
an increase in the incidence of falls and hip
fractures. Other more obscure causes are acute
alcoholism, cancer, herpes, shingles. The nervous
system has a natural attrition that it looses
sensitivity however in normal aging doesn’t
produce the following signs or symptoms.
So if you have any symptoms of numbness,
tingling, burning, little gnats biting your legs at
night, loss of balance because you cannot feel the
soles of your feet then it’s time to be evaluated by
a Dr. trained in detection and diagnosis of the
condition. 
If you are a candidate for Neuropathic rehab (new
revolutionary natural care without taking meds or
other harmful chemicals in your body) then you
can make an informed consent decision on a
health care program that’s shown thru scientific
research to have a 90% satisfaction rate with
treatment.
We cordially invite you to explore the possibilities
of alternative care to bring your energy and spirit
back for a healthier life.
Sincerely,
