Neuropathy is a condition that is caused by damage to the peripheral nerve cells. This causes the production of various symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness or extreme sensitivity to the affected areas. According to statistics, this is not a rare condition. It affects millions upon millions of people, not only in America but also around the world.
Can neuropathy be reversed? That’s one of the first and most common questions a person affected by this condition asks.
How much pain can a person withstand and how long can he do that, always vary from one person to another considering that pain is always subjective. Yet, this is how much we know: nerve pain usually lasts long and if left untreated has a potential to undermine a person’s quality of life.
So, can neuropathy be reversed? Before we answer the question being considered, we must assess through further questions first:
What caused the damage?
Under some circumstances, this condition can be reversed. However, it is imperative that we know what caused the neuropathy.
Was it Diabetes Mellitus? Diabetic neuropathy occurs when persistently high blood glucose levels damage the nerve tissues. Normal blood sugar levels in diabetic people can help damaged nerve cells to regenerate.
Or had you a car accident or fall before you had nerve pain and numbness? Chiropractic alignment and like therapy help free up blocked nerve pathways through removing spinal misalignments which was most likely caused by the accident or fall.
Neuropathy can also be traced to alcoholism, toxic chemicals, a vegan diet, shingles, syphilis, AIDS, some autoimmune diseases and other medical conditions. As we said earlier, neuropathy can be treated if the underlying problem is managed. As such, the key to understanding whether neuropathy can ever be reversed is first identifying what condition caused it and then managing that condition.
Can damaged nerves regenerate?
Under certain circumstances, damaged nerves can, yes, regenerate.
Some nerves can be repaired while other nerves are irreparable. Nerves of the spinal cord do not regenerate. But nerves of the peripheral nervous system have an astonishing ability to regenerate after an injury. This fact is good news to persons who experience neuropathy.
As long as the peripheral nerve fibers are not dead or cut, they can repair itself and regenerate. Peripheral nerve regrowth doesn’t happen easily, nonetheless. Regrowth of nerve cells requires two ends of axons to find their way back to each other through damaged tissue. It takes up to twelve months for this process to finish. Under fair circumstances. Which brings us to the next question.
What are you doing to promote nerve repair?
We’re asking exactly about your current lifestyle. Do you eat nutritious foods? Are you filling half of your plate with fruits and veges, and filling the other half with lean protein and good fat? Do you eat less salty, less fatty and less sweet foods? Are you drinking plenty of water?
Well, unless otherwise advised by your MD, you should be. Do you exercise regularly? Or do you spend more time in front of the TV? What books do you read? What are the movies you watch?
Some people who have been less informed believe that they can eat what they want, do what they want, think what they want, and if health problems arise, there is always a medical solution to that.
But no, the truth is, it simply cannot be. In order to self heal damaged nerves, you must support the process through opting for a healthier lifestyle.
Do you know about The FFA Protocol for Neuropathy Relief
One of the things that we’ve started to realize is that if you can accomplish three things, you can start to achieve healing of neuropathy. The FFA protocol involves fueling the nerves in a way that will promote healing and prevent further damage. Then improving blood flow so that those nerves get adequate oxygen. Finally you must activate those nerves in a specific way to cause them to function more normally.
