Neuropathy

What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy is the medical term for nerve malfunction. Nerve problems can occur in any part of your body, but the most common forms of neuropathy often affect the nerves in your hands and feet. The circulation to the hands and feet are cut off, and the nerves slowly die.

Symptoms of neuropathy can include:

  • Numbness
  • Sharp, electric pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Burning or tingling
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Balance problems
  • Constipation

These symptoms can have a significant impact on your life. Many people with neuropathy have trouble keeping up with their daily activity. 

Ordinary tasks can be a challenge when you're struggling with stubborn nerve pain, but treatment may help eliminate many unpleasant neuropathy symptoms.


What causes neuropathy?

Neuropathy is often linked to a chronic health condition. Diabetes and chemotherapy are common causes of neuropathy. 

If your diabetes is not well controlled, you may be at a high risk for nerve problems. Other conditions that may cause neuropathy include:

  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Cancer or chemotherapy
  • Autoimmune disease 
  • Infections
  • Genetic disorders
  • Kidney disease
  • Exposure to toxins or poisons

Traditional medical treatment from neurologists and neurosurgeons believe that once the nerves have died, they cannot wake up.

They prescribe pain medication to help with the symptoms. These drugs have unpleasant side effects. Many patients prefer to suffer with their neuropathy rather than take these drugs.


How is neuropathy treated?

LightWave Wellness offers the “Neuropathy Reversal Program”, an innovative program that reverses neuropathy by restoring the circulation to the hands and feet and “wakes up” the dead nerves. The program consists of home therapy using cutting edge technology devices with occasional visits for therapy in the office.


Can lifestyle changes really help my neuropathy?

Many people believe that medication is the only way to treat neuropathy, but nonpharmaceutical, holistic treatments can often provide long-term relief. Drug-free, nonsurgical therapies work with your body to improve your health naturally. There are supplements that help increase nitric acid which helps reverse neuropathy.
