We offer a number of different therapies, some directly for the peripheral nerves and others for the brain, all geared to help you feel better. The specific types of therapies will depend upon examination results. The screening will determine if you qualify for care and which specific therapies are best suited for you.
We evaluate the chemistry of the body in order to ensure that proper support is available to the brain and nerve system. We can do this with a number of different types of tests.
Sensitivity Testing: to determine if you have a sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barley), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy. If you are sensitive to ANY of these food groups, it could be making your symptoms worse as it will increase inflammation in your brain and throughout your body, including your arms hands, legs or feet!
Good blood circulation is very important because blood transports oxygen, vital fluids and nutrients to the nerves.
Various treatment methods administered will help stimulate the blood vessels surrounding the peripheral nerves providing them with the proper nutrients to aid in the repair. It’s like adding water to a tree and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. As long as you have not sustained at least 85% nerve damage there is hope!
By restoring circulation to the feet or hands, we can actually regenerate damaged nerve tissue. Even better is that these changes are maintained for the long term with the simple home therapies and nutritional protocols that you'll continue on your own.
Neuropathy is a progressive condition, meaning it tends to get worse with time. If left untreated for too long, the nerve damage can reach a point where there is simply nothing that can be done. This is why early detection and treatment of peripheral neuropathy is critical to getting the best results.
When Neuropathy causes numbness in the feet, the risk of falling is greater. Numbness decreases your sense of balance. Loss of balance and position sense can easily lead to a fall or car accident. Having improved feeling in your feet can not only help reduce the risk of amputation, it can also save your life. Stop taking avoidable risks!

It’s not always easy to pinpoint the cause of Peripheral Neuropathy. A number of factors can contribute. Please call our clinic to learn if this treatment can help your condition.
Diabetes is the most common cause of Peripheral Neuropathy and can occur even in Diabetics who keep their blood sugar levels under control.
Patients undergoing chemotherapy often develop Neuropathy during or after the treatment.
Neuropathy commonly occurs after injury to nerves in the legs, and in patients diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy due to trauma.
Poor circulation leading to foot ulcers, and blockage of blood supply to the leg can also cause Neuropathy.
Many alcoholics develop Peripheral Neuropathy due to nerve ending damage.
Peripheral Neuropathy can be an associated medical condition for patients diagnosed with Restless Legs Syndrome, characterized by cramping and other unpleasant sensations in the legs.
Autoimmune diseases, kidney disease, liver disease and thyroid conditions can also cause Peripheral Neuropathy, as can certain viral or bacterial infections, including Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.
