Healing Peripheral Nerves: Restoring Functional Hands and Feet

Feb 01, 2022 02:20PM ● By Leon Gonyo

Peripheral neuropathy is where damaged nerves cause weakness, burning pain, numbness, tingling, and debilitating balance challenges. Several different problems in the body such as poor blood flow to the nerves, toxic levels of sugar in the blood (diabetes), cancer, chronic infections, pesticide exposure and genetic variants are a few of the causes of this debilitating nerve damaging condition. The cause for every patient is different but must be determined so that a proper treatment plan can be followed to assist the nerves in healing.

Scientific literature establishes that peripheral nerves can and do heal without the need for drugs or surgery. To optimize the ability for the nerves to heal properly the underlying cause of the neuropathy must be fixed as well as proper support for the nerves. The key issues are to stop the cause of the nerve damage and getting the nerves to begin healing.

Three major factors must be determined to effectively heal nerve damage:

  • What is the underlying cause of the nerve damage?
  • How severe is the nerve damage?
  • What types of nerve fibers are damaged?

Four main goals of an effective treatment include:

  1. Improve the environment within the body for nerve healing.
  2. Increase blood flow to the nerves.
  3. Stimulate the nerves that are damaged (small fiber, large diameter, or motor nerves) to reduce pain and improve balance.
  4. Decrease brain-based pain.

Seek a qualified professional with a treatment system that increases blood flow to the nerves in the feet and/or hands, which helps to repair nerves naturally and has the ability to return feet and/or hands to normal.
