We get a lot of questions about neuropathy. And one of the questions that I hear is “Do those neuropathy socks work?” Now this actually isn’t a testament to the neuropathy socks, but I’m going to tell you this story and I hope based on what I tell you, you’re going to understand what I’m talking about here. Years ago and even now, our family loves to camp, we love to camp, we love to get on lakes and, and we used to have this really cool boat that we would ride in and, and we’d go out and adventure on this boat. Well, one day the boat didn’t work and I was trying to figure out how I was going to get the boat back to shore and the wind was blowing the boat farther and farther away. So I had the bright idea that I was going to tie to solve this problem.
I was going to tie a rope around my waist and tie the other end of the rope to the boat. I was going to get in the water and I was going to swim the boat back to shore. I’m trying to swim the boat back to shore and I have my kids cheering me on. Go daddy, go daddy. They were, such troopers on this day and I just swam and swam and swam and every time I’d look up I’d realize that we weren’t any closer to the dock. In fact, we were farther and farther away, but that didn’t stop me. I just kept swimming and kept swimming and eventually I saw this police officer get out of his vehicle. I think he had been watching me struggle for a long time. He walks out onto the dock and he gets his megaphone and he says, you’re not going to be able to make it.
So he says he’s going to call the boat tow boat or whatever it is, and they’re going to tow us back in. We had to pay X amount of money and we’re not going to be able to make it stop trying to swim the boat back. I didn’t want to give up, but I did. I realized that there was no way that I was going to make it back. Why in the world do I tell you this silly story? I tell you this because you probably realize that just in me beginning to tell you this story that that I myself am not going to be able to tie a rope to my waist and swim a boat with my family back to shore against the wind. But we try this all the time when we try to take care of serious health conditions with very small ways to treat them.
But it happens because we grasp at whatever is available. We hear this vitamin can make a difference. So we go and we grab that vitamin and we try it and we may see something, we may not see anything or we hear that this SOC could make a difference. And so we get that sock and we try it and we may feel something, but in general we won’t feel that much. Or we may try all kinds of different things. There are lots of things out there. I’m going to tell you right now, don’t reach for just a thing. You have to understand the recipe to be able to take care of neuropathy and if you understand that recipe and you follow the very specific steps to take care of it, then you will see a change in your neuropathy. You won’t see that with just a sock or with just a vitamin or with just some new exercise or with just whatever.
You have to have a complete method to heal those nerves, to improve blood flow, to activate those nerves, to change the environment in your body in a way that’s going to promote more healing instead of degeneration and damage and inflammation. You have to address each of those things and a socket doesn’t do that and a massager doesn’t do that. And uh, and I’m, I’m telling you some of these things are things that we’ll use in our office as one small part of a very big system to make a difference in your health. If you want to get better and neuropathy as something that is serious enough that if you don’t follow the steps, it is definitely, definitely going to get worse. And neuropathy is something that can be debilitating and it could change your life for the rest of your life. And no one wants this. And so if you don’t want this, take the steps to change it.
