Peripheral Neuropathy 
What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a functional disconnection syndrome affecting the parietal lobe of the brain. When the parietal lobes are constantly weaken or slowed down from traumas, emotional stresses, inflammatory or toxic triggers the signals in this brain do not get processed correctly as the neurons in the parietal lobe lose their firing “timing”, thus causing the immune system to attack and destroy nerve tissue. As the  immune system mistakenly destroys nerve tissue, whether attacking brain or peripheral nerve tissue it will manifest all sorts of symptoms like pain, weakness, numbness, tingling, pins and needles and so on.

These attacks are triggered by;

  • Infections (Bacteria, virus, protozoal, fungal parasites), HIV, shingles, malignant disease, diabetes, chemotherapy and radiation.
  • Food sensitivities (35% of people with peripheral neuropathy are gluten intolerant), viruses, infections, zoonotic infections, high amounts of insulin (diabetics) and high amounts of inflammation. 
  • Drugs like metronidazole, vincristine, phenytoin, isoniazid, nitrofurantoin, statins, fluoroquinolone drugs, and ethyl alcohol can cause this condition. It may also be caused by organic metals and heavy metals. 
  • By physical traumas like compression, cutting, strokes, pinching, projectile injuries and electric shock. 
  • Alcoholism,tobacco,Cocaine and amphetamines (meth),  street drugs, metabolic issues, illness, traumatic injury, and vitamin deficiencies  all  can be helping the deterioration of peripheral nerves . 
Peripheral neuopathy is also caused by spinal compression, carpal tunnel syndrome, mechanical injury, and neuro toxitcity.

The Symptoms 

Nerve damage, malfunctioning nerves,  or nervous system issues will cause some type of pain,  sensations, or fail to provide sensory information. Symptoms depend on the kind of peripheral nerves (motor, sensor or autonomic) that are damaged and will range from mere tingling to paralysis. The main parts of the body affected with peripheral neuropathy are the legs, hands, and feet. 
Here are some symptoms of Peripheral neuropathy:

Burning pain
Freezing pain
Tingling
Cutting sensation
Shooting pain
Sudden sharp lightning like pain 
Jabbing pain
Painful cramps
Aching hands, arches and where the three middle toes meet ball of foot, pain of feet and hands.
Pain worse at night. 

Inability to feel pain 
Inability to feel changes in temperature 

Changes in sweat glands
Inability to sweat normally
unusual sweating, 
Heat intolerance 
Changes in hair
Changes in nails 
Nail deformation
Changes in skin pigmentation; hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, discoloration of the feet.
Skin that is extremely sensitive to touch

Numbness or reduced sensation.
Unable to hold on to something
Difficulty or inability to fasten buttons,and grab objects
Numbness in the lower limbs 
Not knowing where your foot is
Feeling as if you are wearing an invisible sock or glove

Loss of balance
Difficulty maintaining balance with eyes shut
Difficulty in walking
Difficulty in moving the arms

Loss of coordination or balance
A loss of coordination like walking.
Gait abnormalities
Loss of tendon reflexes 
Extreme weakening affecting the muscles in the lower legs and feet 

Foot deformities, 
Foot disfigurement, 
Loss of a limb

Bone degeneration. 

Gradual muscular weakening
Muscle cramping 
Muscle loss
Muscle twitching visible under the skin 
Loss of  reflex and muscle control 
Muscle atrophy (loss of muscle bulk) 
Weakness in the muscles 
Tiredness 

Impaired breathing
Abnormal pulse
Irregular  heart beating
Loss of control over blood pressure that causes dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting.

Problems eating or swallowing.
Bowel dysfunction - 
Malfunction of intestinal muscle contractions causing diarrhea, constipation, or incontinence

Bladder dysfunction 
Loss of bladder control. 

Regeneration of nerves
Peripheral nerves have the ability to regenerate, only after the  infections/toxins/metals are gone, as long as the nerve cell itself has not been killed.

All stressors causing the deterioration must be stopped from stressing the body. In the case of disease and traumatic injury one does the best they can to alleviate impact.
 

Helpful for peripheral nerve regeneration
(The following is some research only.)

See Toxicity  All toxins must be remove firsts!!!!
# 1- Detoxification of the deep tissues and fatty cells MUST be done..not much of anything else works..
My opinion after trying much as an experiment. FLUOX is best using it for one month or many months.

- Balance of all vitamins and minerals important!
- Detoxification of all toxins and minerals...a MUST!
- Eating nutritious and clean foods consistently, especially:dark leafy greens (like spinach, chard and kale), nuts and seeds (like sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, almonds, cashews, pine nuts, mixed nuts, peanuts, pecans and walnuts), beans and lentils (like white beans, French beans, black eyed peas, kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils and pinto beans), avocado, whole grains (quinoa, millet, bulgur, buckwheat, wild rice, whole wheat pasta, barley and oats), dry fruits (apricots, raisins and dates), banana and dark chocolate. When the body is depleted of magnesium at first one may require up  to 750mg daily for weeks and later the amount required becomes less.(Citrate best). N-Acetyl Cysteine foods:Red peppers, wheat, oats, cereals, legumes, broccoli, onion,  and Brussels sprouts 
- B complex very important as a body is under stress when it is coping with pain including B-12, as well as vitamins E and C, selenium and pycnogenol, a plant-derived substance that has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and other powerful properties. A naturopathic can usually tell which vitamin and mineral you are taking to much of of or lacking so you can re-balance.
- Benfotiamine (type of vitamin B1) can be taken orally in large dosages and it will not flush out of the body the way ordinary Thiamine (vitamin B1) does.
- Omega-3 fatty acids found in cold water fish and flaxseed ( “food” for the nervous system. ) When our nerve cells are well nourished, they are more capable of transmitting healthy nerve signals. ( Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation in all tissues of the body.)
- Oxygenation: 100 deep belly-moving breaths per day. 
- Hydration: Drink a lot of water. 
- Staying active. Move your body every day, even if it’s a simple activity such as going for a walk.Anything to promote circulation and help control blood sugar levels. Increased circulation can slow down any nerve damage. 

Other what works for some and not for others:
- Lion's Mane Tincture regenerates nerves (not all are equal!)
-Chlorella regenerates nerves.
- After energy testing many of these types of mattresses - only the following resonated as being helpful for Peripheral neuropathy regeneration: Magnetic Kenko Dream Comforter and  Kenko Travel,  Vita-Mat Infrared Single Mattress, Tourmaline infared mat, Comfortstone Infared Jade Mattress and Thermal FIR Far Infrared Heating Jade Therapy Exercise Yoga Mat.

Other that may or may not help.

- Acetyl Cysteine helps the body to produce glutathione, aiding in  detoxification. Acetyl-l-carnitine has a regenerative effect on the nerves. Three days of 800mg daily cause numbness, tingling and burning to feel better. 
- Alpha Lipoic Acid ( An antioxidant present in each cell of the body)Used  to treat peripheral nerve degeneration caused by diabetes. It is found in Broccoli, Spinach, Brussels sprouts, peas, and tomatoes. Wait eight to 12 weeks before assessing results. (Note: Alpha lipoic acid can reduce blood sugar levels. Only take a max of 100mg alpha lipoic acid every 4 hours, or it will mobilize too much mercury for you to handle. It is a chelator. Alpha Lipoic acid also burns through methylation agents and Zinc. Methyl agents are methyl b12, methyl folate, other B vitamins. Best not lay down for at least half an hour after taking ALA and may not be best to avoid it with mercury fillings in place. 
Together- R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (600 mg per day); and Acetyl L-Carnitine (1000 mg three times daily).If there's any chance you are mercury toxic * DO NOT take alpha lipoic acid as this will cause mercury re-distribution.  This applies to any amount of mercury in your system; vaccines, fillings, eating fish, living in an area of mercury water, etc..
- Acupuncture To attain the greatest relief,  start acupuncture treatment at the first sign of symptoms to avoid full-blown neuropathy . 8 to 12 sessions of treatment.
- Magnetic Foot Pads or Insoles (Nikken) (significant improvement in symptoms over a period of months)
- Castor oil packs provide relief from some symptoms of peripheral neuropathy.
- Cayenne cream or ointment (Dr. Christopher’s or other) Massage of cayenne into the skin. relieves the pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. BELL’S ORIGINAL JOINT RELIEF cream
