There’s nothing quite like neuropathy pain. It starts gradually, with the onset of numbness, prickling, or tingling in your feet or hands. These sensations can spread into your legs and arms. Some people even report sharp jabbing, throbbing, or burning pain, while others have muscle weakness. Up until recently, there hasn’t been a lot you can do to treat the symptoms long-term. Most providers try to address the underlying cause and treat the pain with medications. But a breakthrough in neuropathy treatment is here. Keep reading to learn more about neuropathy and a cutting-edge treatment option: Neurogenx.

Living with the Pain of Neuropathy

Neuropathy pain is all too common. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke reports that more than 20 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have some form of peripheral neuropathy. This figure could be much higher, as not all people with symptoms of neuropathy are tested for the disease—and unfortunately, today’s tests don’t look for all forms of neuropathy. This makes it hard to diagnose, and the fact that there are 100 types of peripheral neuropathy, each with its own set of symptoms and prognosis, complicates the matter even more.

The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy also vary, depending on the peripheral nerve affected:

  • Sensory nerves: These nerves receive input from various locations of the body. They then send messages to the brain about the body’s sensations, such as hot and cold, pain, and touch.
  • Motor nerves: These nerves transmit messages from the brain and spinal cord, telling various muscles to move.
  • Autonomic nerves: These nerves regulate how your internal organs, such as your blood vessels, stomach, heart, and sweat glands, function.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the most common type of peripheral neuropathy is diabetic neuropathy, caused by a high sugar level and resulting in nerve fiber damage in your legs and feet. Symptoms can range from tingling or numbness in a certain body part to more serious effects, such as burning pain or paralysis.

Tips for Preventing or Controlling Neuropathy

Like so many conditions, lifestyle choices can play a key role in preventing or controlling peripheral neuropathy. Here are some tips:

  • Invest in a healthy lifestyle: Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help prevent neuropathy and lessen symptoms if you already suffer from it.
  • Lose weight: If you are overweight, losing weight can help you take better control of neuropathy or avoid getting it in the first place. (If you need help with weight loss, be sure to check out our natural and holistic program, Nutrihealth.)
  • Manage chronic conditions: If you have kidney disease, diabetes, or other chronic health conditions, work with your healthcare provider to control your condition, which may prevent or delay the onset of peripheral neuropathy.

Neurogenx: A Breakthrough Neuropathy Treatment Option
