“..Peripheral neuropathy is a term which describes damage to one or more of your peripheral nerves. The damage means that the messages that travel between your central and peripheral nervous system are disrupted. There are many different conditions that can lead to peripheral neuropathy.
Diabetes is the most common cause of persistent (chronic) peripheral neuropathy. The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy depend on which type of peripheral nerves are damaged (sensory, motor or autonomic nerves). Neuropathy can affect any one type, or a combination of all three types, of nerves. The aims of treatment for peripheral neuropathy are to treat any underlying cause, to control your symptoms and to help you to achieve maximum independence.

What are the causes of peripheral neuropathy?
“…People who have a family history of peripheral neuropathy are more likely to develop the disorder. However, a variety of factors and underlying conditions may also cause this condition.
Nerve damage caused by diabetes is one of the most common forms of neuropathy. This leads to numbness, pain, and a loss of sensation in the extremities. The risk of neuropathy increases for people who:
•have high blood pressure
•are over the age of 40

“What are the causes of neuropathy?
Diabetes is a frequent cause of neuropathy, but peripheral neuropathy can also be due to toxic trauma (such as from chemotherapy) or mechanical injury, as with carpal tunnel syndrome. It can be caused by putting pressure on nerves, such as the prolonged use of crutches, or even by sitting in the same position for too long. Disorders such as atherosclerosis, autoimmunity, advanced kidney disease and hypothyroidism may also be to blame, as well as certain drugs or environmental toxins.

•Physical trauma and pressure on nerves
•Exposure to toxins and certain medications
•Various other health issues, including kidney disorders, cancers and tumors, blood diseases, and hormonal imbalances

“..Checking your blood glucose levels will tell you whether your diabetes care plan is working or whether changes are needed.
Report symptoms of diabetic neuropathy.
If you have problems, get treatment right away. Early treatment can help prevent more problems later on. For example, if you take care of a foot infection early, it can help prevent amputation.
Take good care of your feet. Check your feet every day. If you no longer can feel pain in your feet, you might not notice a foot injury. Instead, use your eyes to look for problems. Use a mirror to see the bottoms of your feet. Use your hands to feel for hot or cold spots, bumps or dry skin. Look for sores, cuts or breaks in the skin. Also check for corns, calluses, blisters, red areas, swelling, ingrown toenails and toenail infections. If it’s hard for you to see or reach your feet, get help from a family member or foot doctor.
Protect your feet. If your feet are dry, use a lotion on your skin but not between your toes. Wear shoes and socks that fit well and wear them all the time. Use warm water to wash your feet, and dry them carefully afterward.
Get special shoes if needed. If you have foot problems, Medicare may pay for shoes. Ask your health care team about it.
Be careful with exercising. Some physical activities are not safe for people with neuropathy. Talk with a diabetes clinical exercise expert who can guide you…”

Obtain Relief from Peripheral Neuropathy by Using Natural Remedies
Monday, September 20, 2010 by: Luella May naturalnews.com
“..In addition to proper diet and exercise, the herbs and supplements listed below can help to give relief by oxygenating cells, reducing inflammation, and dispelling toxic free radicals:
*Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant used in Europe to treat peripheral nerve degeneration caused by diabetes. It is a sulfur-containing fatty acid contained in each cell of the body which generates energy. The suggested dosage is 1,200 to 1,800 mgs in divided doses daily.
*N-Acetyl Cysteine helps detoxify the body by helping it produce glutathione.
*Magnesium soothes the nervous system. The recommended dosage is 800 mgs in two divided doses.
*A vitamin B6 deficiency can aggravate or even cause neuropathic pain. This vitamin becomes more effective when taken with B-complex vitamins. The suggested dosage is 100 mgs per day, but it is important not to exceed this amount.
*Cayenne massaged into the skin has been known to relieve neuropathic pain.
*Skullcap soothes the entire nervous system. The suggested dosage is fifteen drops of tincture in a glass of water three to six times a day or as needed for pain.
*Evening primrose oil can be effective in preventing nerve damage and in keeping the condition from getting worse.
*Colloidal silver may help nerves regenerate and studies in Hungary found specific silver receptors on human nerve tissue.
*Digestive enzymes taken two or three times a day on an empty stomach help remove plaque and restore circulation to extremities.
Castor oil packs can provide symptomatic relief for some people. Massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, and relaxation therapy have also been shown to be effective

“..Natural treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy:
Q. Are there any natural approaches for the pain of neuropathy?
A. There are a few possibilities. One is alpha lipoic acid. A meta-analysis of 15 randomized controlled trials demonstrated that it is safe and probably effective for treating diabetic nerve pain (European Journal of Endocrinology, Oct. 2012).
The other possibility is benfotiamine, a synthetic derivative of vitamin B1 (Pharmacological Research, June, 2010). It has been investigated as a treatment for diabetic neuropathy (Current Clinical Pharmacology, Nov. 2011).

“I can feel the wind on my feet”..Over 20 years of Neuropathy Healed! February 1, 2011 lovesaysgo.wordpress.com
“..That’s why Jesus used so many different ways to heal people. It is Gods nature (Exodus 15:25) and the power of the person of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:38) that brings healing. We are going to show various biblical examples and then demonstrate them: Laying on hands (Mark 16:18), Declaration prayers (Psalm 107:20), Anointed articles (Acts 19:12), Releasing Virtue (Luke 8:46), Healing from our shadow (Acts 5:15) and many more. We believe if Jesus or His disciples healed a certain way its our inheritance too. Jesus said “As the Father has sent me, so I send you” We are anointed to set people free! Today we filmed “Laying on hands”. We met a lady who had back and hip pain and neuropathy (nerve damage) in her legs and feet. She was in a car wreck in 1989 and since that time she has not had feeling in her feet and numb spots on her legs. Her feet have been continually numb for over 20 years now. We video taped the entire healing. In about 10 minutes, Jesus ended up completely healing her! Her back and hip pain left and she could feel her feet for the first time in over 2o years! She said “I can even feel the wind on them” Come on Jesus! Neuropathy healed-Jesus set her free! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand means His power in you is available “Now” to help people. Hallelujah to Jesus our King and Lord!..”
Spiritual Neuropathy – Barbara Parker 15 Jul, 2013 in General Interest Articles by Barbara Parker aslansplace.com
Fortunately, while the physical reality of peripheral neuropathy is often a chronic malady that may never go away completely, there is a definite cure for the spiritual version. Jesus himself promised it before he went to the cross as he comforted his disciples saying, “When the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you. I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:26-27) So I, like the Apostle Paul, declare that I do not come with eloquence or superior wisdom; or with wise and persuasive words. My only message is the good news about the Lord Jesus Christ, for I rest in the confidence of knowing him and in the power of the Holy Spirit. I too speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began
