Imagine you’re driving down the street in your shiny new car and then you notice the check engine like comes on. At first it’s alarming but you take it to your local mechanic to have it checked out. How surprised would you be if the local mechanic went into the front seat and put a piece of black duct tape over your check engine light so that when you looking at your dash, you know longer see the light?
Did that mechanic fix anything? Of course not – he covered up the light without actually looking into the source of the problem. Very soon you are likely to notice that problem gets worse and worse and worse until you’re no longer able to use the car.
We treat our bodies the same way.
When we’re dealing with the tingling in the hands and feet of neuropathy, one of the first things we want to do is stop that pain right away. However the pain serves as a warning signal that there is something wrong in your body. Something clearly is functioning incorrectly and without improving that, we are doomed to have more problems with our health.
One of the first things we need to do is make sure that we’re addressing the causes of your neuropathy.
Causes of Neuropathy
There are many causes of the tingling in the hands and feet of neuropathy. The most common cause of neuropathy is diabetes. It accounts for one third of all cases. Unfortunately, if you don’t have diabetes, it’s easy to think that you may not have neuropathy. But there are still 70% of other causes out there. Here’s a list of what they are:
- Infectious diseases HIV, hepatitis C: infectious diseases can attack the nerves and create neuropathy symptoms.
- Lyme disease
- Trauma: physical trauma can cause damage to peripheral nerves. If there’s consistent pressure on the nerves, that pressure must be reduced to allow you to have normal nerve function.
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Dion beret syndrome: usually in response to a viral infection or vaccine, Gillian barre creates extensive damage to the peripheral nerves.
- Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
- Metabolic disorders: diabetes and other disorders of the body’s metabolism can cause peripheral
- Renal failure
- Vitamin B12 deficiency
- Celiac disease
- Cancers and cancer syndromes
- Demyelinating diseases
- Axon damage from deep generation
- Compression syndromes
The Unknown Cause
The unfortunate reality is that about 35% of all neuropathy pain is idiopathic which means we have no idea what the cause is.
The key to successful treatment and care for the tingling in the hands and feet of neuropathy is doing everything you can to understand the cause. When you do, you can try to eliminate the cause. If you aren’t able to identify the cause, we would want to reduce the effect the cause has on how you’re feeling.
It looks something like this. If you have diabetes, we must take steps to manage blood sugar. When we do, we can stop further damage to the peripheral nerves. Then we can take steps to heal and rebuild the nervous system.
Our FFA program for neuropathy relief is a multi-step approach to help tingling in the hands and feet. This program will help your nervous system to heal in 3 ways.
First we provide Fuel for the nerves. When you have all the raw materials you need, the nerves have a chance to heal and rebuild.
Blood Flow is the second area that we will focus on. Specific supplementation, nutrition, and low level light therapy will increase capillary blood flow to the peripheral nerves in the legs and feet. Blood flow brings oxygen to the tissues, which are vital for true healing.
Activation is the final area we’ll look at today. When you have the proper fuel and normal blood flow to the peripheral nerves, then we can provide activation to those nerves. When we use specific wavelengths, then those nerves will begin to function normally and you will feel less pain, tingling and numbness in the hands and feet and be on your way to much better health.
