I get a lot of calls from patients who suffer from a terrible nerve disease called peripheral neuropathy. This disorder usually afflicts the lower legs. The nerves there are the longest and most vulnerable in the body. When it strikes, the pain is excruciating.

Diabetics are particularly prone to suffer. Diabetes impairs the blood flow in the long nerves. That can lead to the damage and pain. Anything that can help is most welcome. Unfortunately, this disease is virtually untreatable by conventional medicine (as are most chronic disorders). But there are several alternative solutions you should know about.

If you have diabetes, you must bring your blood sugar under control. It doesn't do any good to treat the pain without fixing the cause. If you do, the pain will either never leave or it will come right back. For type-2 diabetes, diet is a must.

Next, have your heavy metal levels tested. Lead and other heavy metals (including aluminum poisoning) are a common cause. So you have to keep your levels low. Visit my website (www.secondopinionnewsletter.com) for various ways to remove heavy metals. Chelation therapy, IV and oral, are the most common.

Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?

Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

Some nutrients also can be very effective. This is one case where you have to throw a lot of nutrients at the problem. The most researched include: alpha lipoic acid, acetyl carnitine, benfotiamine (an active sulfurated form of vitamin B1), methylcobalamin (methylated vitamin B12) and topical application of capsaicin. The oral nutrients all can improve energy production in your nerve tracts. The capsaicin (hot pepper extract) has specific compounds that can inhibit neurogenic pain.

Researchers also say these nutrients have great potential: vitamin E, glutathione, folate, pyridoxine, biotin, myo-inositol, omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids, L-arginine, L-glutamine, taurine, N-acetylcysteine, zinc, magnesium, chromium, and St. John's wort.

But there's another treatment that produces wonderful results. My friend Len Saputo, MD of Walnut Creek, California uses BioPhoton Therapy. This is a device that emits invisible light (photons). The light frequency improves the restricted blood flow. Unfortunately, the device isn't widely available. You can visit Dr. Saputo's clinic if you live in northern California (925-962-3799) or want to travel there. But that may not be necessary. I have a solution that has similar effects and it's easy to get.

In my own experience, I've seen the cold laser help. It treats with visible red light (photons). That's a different frequency than the BioPhoton device. While it doesn't work in every case, I have seen it reverse almost every form of pain. And you can easily find the laser from LazR Pulse at 888-696-6532. The company now has an affordable rental program that helps fit the laser into your budget. The program gives you an almost risk-free way to see if it will work for you before purchasing.

Whatever you do, don't wait any longer to take action. Peripheral neuropathy will only get worse. So begin treating it today.
