What is Neuropathy

A malfunction or damage to your nerves, resulting in numb feeling, scratchy feelings, or weak muscle, leads to Neuropathy. It targets your hands and feet; however, it can damage your other body parts as well.

Causes of Neuropathy

Neuropathy develops due to disturbing injuries or a metabolic disorder. It can occur because of exposure to toxins and chronic diseases. Diabetes is another cause of neuropathy. People suffering from peripheral neuropathy are prone to excruciating, tingling, and burning feelings.

Types of Neuropathy

1. Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy may damage the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. It may cause weakness, pain, and fatigue targeting your hands and feet.

2. Proximal neuropathy (diabetic amyotrophy)

Not often, but it’s a nerve damage process that may affect your lower torso and parts around it. It may initially affect one side of the body, and later it can spread to your other part of the body.

3. Autonomic neuropathy

This type of neuropathy may affect your organs. Its early symptoms include dizziness, fainting feels at the time of rising up or in a standing or walking position. You may feel nauseated or vomiting. It can affect your bowel movements, bladder, and sexual functions as well.

4. Focal neuropathy (or mono-neuropathy)

This disorder deals with single nerve damage to your hand, head, leg, or torso. It's less common than peripheral neuropathy. In all likelihood, diabetics have a great chance of developing focal neuropathy.

What are the Different Stages of Neuropathy?

  • Stage one relates to numbness & pain
  • Stage two brings constant pain
  • Stage three is worst, bringing in severe and high-intensity pains
  • Stage four will paralyze you with complete numbness and/or sudden loss of sensation

What is a Natural Treatment for Neuropathy?

You may add cayenne pepper as a regular ingredient in your daily diet. Or you can opt for capsaicin that may also reduce neuropathy pains. Capsaicin comes in ointments that you may apply to have an instant soothing effect on your affected body part. It may give a burning feeling, but it will gradually reduce your neuropathic tingling sensation.

There are other ways that can help you naturally reverse your neuropathy.

Here’s your answer to “What can I do to reverse neuropathy naturally?”

Exercise

Exercise helps to minimize your peripheral neuropathy. Good exercise or sports activities promote your muscle flexibility, burn extra fats, and lowers neuropathy symptoms.

Regular exercises may combat many other health problems that can cause neuropathy. As discussed, diabetics are more prone to peripheral neuropathy. However, proper and right exercises can help your body control levels of blood sugar. This will directly reduce your post-diabetes problems or their adverse effects.

Regular exercise reduces pressure on your blood vessels, which eventually reduces any neuropathy risk.

Water Aerobics

You may exercise more and more, but water aerobics can help improve your cardiovascular circulation. Water aerobics can have the same effect on your body as other physical exercises; the only difference or advantage is water aerobics won’t put stress on your joints and limbs. It also keeps your fresh and agile at the same time.

Follow a Healthy Diet

Your diet intake directly impacts your blood sugar levels, so include whole foods in your diet. Avoid carbs, sugar additives, and sugar syrups-oriented juices or liquids.

For curing your neuropathy condition, you may ensure your diet includes simple water/herbal tea, eat healthy fats, and lean protein-rich foods. You have options to consume fiber-rich foods with nutrients like vegetables and whole foods. These are high antioxidants, contain vitamins, minerals, and potassium.

In comparison, fish contains omega-3 fatty acids, and fish oil will help lower your diabetes. You can get healthy fats from avocado, nuts, olive oil, coconut milk and oil, seeds, etc. Also, maximize your water intake by having about seven to nine (8 oz each) water glasses.

Protect Your Skin and Feet

You may monitor and carefully observe any apparent changes in your skin, feet, and hands, etc.

Thoroughly inspect for signs of injuries, burns, blisters, sores, ulcers around feet, and hand area in specific. Take good care of your feet, as it can prevent diabetic neuropathy. Wash your feet, nails carefully. Take a good look at feet’ skin folds where moisture and infections build. Moreover, wear clean socks.

Regularly cut and file your toenails, and you may consult if you find unusual reddish skin, swelling, infection, or pain in and around toenail areas. You may use capsaicin-base cream that can keep away tingling sensation in some people.

Acupuncture

An acupuncture session gives relief to pain eventually. The needle treatment may give you energy and balance; both these will help reduce numbness and tingling pains.

Alpha-lipoic acid

These are powerful and pain-relieving antioxidants. They promise a great deal with reducing neuropathic-related pains, particularly peripheral neuropathic symptoms. It is present in small amounts in foods and vegetables like sprouts, potatoes, and broccoli.

Glutamine

Your body needs abundant acids like amino; it may help reduce neuropathy side effects along with inflammation, muscle pains, etc. You can find glutamine in foods like wheat, barley, corn, soybeans, peanuts, milk, and egg-whites.

Glutamine may reduce or wipe off the intensity of neuropathy in cancer patients as well as those undergoing chemotherapy.

N-acetyl cysteine

You may find N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) in lentils and bananas. NAC may help your neurological system avoid inflammation and subsequent damages. This may prevent you from neuropathy.

Quitting smoking

Smoking narrows your nerves and damages peripheral blood veins. It may lead to nerve damage and become a primary cause of the neuropathic condition. Hence, the simple advice is to quit smoking.

Quitting smoking will improve blood flow, giving rise to your healthy blood vessels.

Relaxation techniques

You may get more relaxation time and better techniques that can help you manage neuropathic pains. You can observe deep breaths, meditation, yoga, stretching, etc. All these will help reduce your fatigue and stress. They will improve your posture, resulting in some pain relief.

Vitamins

Vitamins deficiency in your body is directly responsible for any of your body part’s dysfunction. It can either be a slow response or the development of mental or physical disorders like neuropathy.

Nerve health gets affected when Vitamin B is missing. Taking vitamin B supplements may also help to overcome vitamin b deficiency.

Vitamin D deficiency can lead to nerve pains. Sunlight is a great source of Vitamin D.

Vitamin-B is an incredible natural source to recover from peripheral neuropathy. Vitamin B has a large family to help maintain a healthy nervous system.

Vitamin B is naturally present in many foods, like fruit, nuts, meat, and vegetables. Your body needs all vitamin B to stay healthy and avoid neuropathy.

  • B1 (thiamine) – comes from beans, whole grains, nuts, red meat, etc.
  • B2 (riboflavin) – sources include eggs, sprouts, almonds, rice, beef, salmon, broccoli, etc
  • B3 (niacin) –is present in leafy greens, eggs, nuts, and legumes, to mention a few
  • B5 (pantothenic acid) –found in chicken liver, seeds of sunflower, mushrooms, and salmon
  • B6 (pyridoxine) – you may find it excessively in sunflower seeds, brown rice, spinach, peaches, berries, etc.
  • B7 (biotin) – is naturally present in strawberries, chicken, nuts, cauliflowers, etc.
  • B9 (folate) – you can find it in leafy greens, beets, dates, salmon
  • B12 (cobalamin) – oysters, mussels, organic meat, and salmon are rich sources of this vitamin

With such a large variety of sources of vitamin B, it is easier to fulfill your body’s nutritional requirements. That said, an overdose can kill its effects and damage your nerves.

Essential Oils

Neuropathy revolves around bad or no response of your blood circulation in certain cases. In order to avoid stagnation or low blood circulation, or ease out stiff muscles, use organic essential oils.

Oils like Roman Lavender and chamomile can relieve pressure by toning the blood vessel around the nerve. These oils are anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving liquids. These or other anti-inflammatory oils can ease out stinging, tickling pains when you may apply them on the affected body areas.

Warm bath

A warm bath is a simple and one of the best natural remedies to lower your muscular or nerve-related pains. It can soothe and ease painful symptoms of neuropathy. As warm water increases your blood circulation in the body, this will decrease pain symptoms from numbness.

Conclusion

We suggest you keep a written record of the response to your pain levels, using natural remedies to combat your neuropathy.

You may find that natural remedies, methods, and food work better than other ways to treat your neuropathy. Patience will bring your better results in improving your health, as natural therapy, remedy and medicines take more time to show their impact.

  • I was exposed to Agent Orange when I made trips into Vietnam in the 70’s. What is your opinion on when an onset of peripheral neuropathy can or will occur after exposure to a Toxin? Could it possibly occur many years later? I have not been diagnosed with Diabetes so if the exposure to Agent Orange didn’t cause my neuropathy, I don’t have a clue about what caused it.
