The good news
Provided the nerve cell is still alive, peripheral nerve cells have a remarkable ability to regenerate themselves. Symptoms can usually be controlled by various means, but the real cure is to prevent new damage by identifying and eliminating what is causing the neuropathy.
Treatment plan should include:
(1) Symptomatic Therapies. Counter and control inflammation - provide antioxidants to counter any oxidants produced by immune system AND control inflammatory reaction;
(2) Remove the source of damage to peripheral nerves - this involves examining the clues to narrow down the possibilities and then addressing those likely causes. E.g.detoxifying the body of microbes in nerve myelin/axons and/or any other substances that induce production of oxidants that can damage nerves (E.g. toxic chemicals); rebuild cartilage that may be causing neural compression damage; address diabetes problem.
Chronic low-level inflammation (CLII) involved in almost all health problems
"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
