During the 12-week trial, between 38% (nortriptyline) to 58% (mexiletine) of the 400 patients dropped out of the study due to unacceptable side-effects without noticeable relief. Notably, the antidepressants and the heart medication gave more relief than Lyrica, the best marketed nerve pain medication. Only 15% of neuropathy patients given Lyrica (pregabalin) reported 50% relief.

To put it lightly, these results are terrible and they're the best that conventional medicine has to offer neuropathy patients.

Placebos work better for neuropathy pain than these drugs do, without any side effects!

Neuropathy Patients Deserve Better

Gabapentin, an anticonvulsant, is the seventh most prescribed medication in America (69 million prescriptions). Often used for neuropathy and opioid withdrawal, gabapentin is addictive and when used with other medications, potentially fatal.

Some of the most reported side effects include dizziness, sleepiness, balance problems, blurred vision, coordination problems, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea headaches and increased pain. These types of pain can be in extremities as well as in other areas such as back pain or joint pain. Other symptoms associated with this medication are weight gain, depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

LLL has been a doctor-prescribed medical treatment in Europe for nearly forty years and is only now becoming widely known and used in the United States to treat pain. LLL is a form of pain relief that uses light applied to the body, usually in the form of a laser or LED. The light is in the near infrared spectrum.

The term "photosynthesis" comes to mind when thinking about the chemical change that light causes. In human tissue, the process is called photobiomodulation. Like when UV light exposure makes vitamin D.

The focused near infra-red light increases production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in our cells. ATP is the energy currency of our cells, so more ATP means faster healing. Near infra-red also increases production of Nitric Oxide which dilates blood vessels, improving blood flow.

LLL also acts to make cell membranes more permeable. By doing so, it helps remove waste products and makes it easier for cells to absorb nutrients. LLL helps reduce inflammation, nerve pain and improves circulation in areas of injury or chronic pain.

Some of the benefits associated with this treatment include a bolstered immune system, increased endorphin production (which act as natural painkillers), and better nerve function.

More than 400 clinical trials and 4,000 laboratory studies have been published on LLL. A 2010 meta-analysis of 22 studies published in the Clinical Journal of Pain confirmed significant pain relief using LLL.

Advances in LED technology, have made near infra-red low level laser therapy within the price range of most people to use at home.

PEMF

The Earth naturally emits a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF), which promotes cell repair and health in all living beings. Studies have shown that the PEMF emitted by the Earth is just as important to human health as food, water, sleep, and sunlight.

PEMF therapy has been proven effective in treating serious health issues by sending out pulses of electromagnetic frequencies that interact with tissues and cells to speed up regeneration. In multiple peer-reviewed studies, this process was shown to be successful in a high percentage of cases.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy involves using a magnetic device to target small bursts of energy at specific areas of the body. These pulsing, vibrating magnetic fields are set to frequencies that help improve healing by increasing oxygenation and reducing mitochondrial dysfunction.

PEMF has been clinically shown to help with reducing fatigue, as well as pain in joints, muscles, and nerves.

Used for decades by both NASA and the European Space Agency, PEMF helps astronauts recover from prolonged space travel, away from earth’s magnetic field.                                          

Back here on earth, PEMF therapy helps professional athletes recover from injuries faster and improve their performance. PEMF therapy can be safely used by people of all ages daily.

PEMF therapy has been approved by the FDA for multiple uses. We have seen PEMF help some of the most difficult nerve pain cases. The technology is still too expensive for home use, so it is one of our favorite in office therapies for neuropathy relief.

Whole Body Vibration

Whole Body Vibration therapy may offer a safe, effective alternative to traditional drug therapies for neuropathy.

Research suggests that Whole Body Vibration (WBV) can improve balance and gait in patients with diabetic neuropathy (Hong, 2011). This is important because neuropathy can cause pain and loss of sensation in the extremities, which can lead to falls and injuries.

Further research demonstrated Whole Body Vibration can help improve circulation, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation. WBV may also help to stimulate nerve function and promote tissue regeneration. “…a promising treatment option for those with diabetes-related neuropathy and other neurovascular complications.” (Johnson et al., 2014).

We searched multiple databases, including the Web of Science, PubMed, Cochrane Library databases, PEDro, Ovid and EBSCO (Medline), for relevant literature up to December 2019. The systematic white paper review confirms “WBV is an effective intervention.” (Wang et al., 2020)

Supplements

A short list of supplements studied by neuropathy researchers has stood the test of scientific scrutiny. But not all supplements are created equal and supplements are not regulated by the FDA so bargain shopping may backfire. Only trust supplements from reputable laboratories, formulated in their most bioavailable form, and dispensed by a doctor with more than the forty hours of nutrition education in medical school.

B12

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that plays a vital role in many bodily functions. One of the most important roles of vitamin B12 is in the proper nerve function and brain development.

Methylcobalamin is the most bioavailable form of vitamin B12 when taken orally. This means that it is more easily absorbed by the body than other forms of vitamin B12. Research has shown methylcobalamin to be effective in treating peripheral neuropathy.

We have a highly bioavailable multiple vitamin and mineral formula to help nerves and damaged tissue heal.

All the vitamins in this formula are in their activated or most bioavailable form with their synergistic minerals to ensure maximal absorption. That's why we call our top shelf multiple vitamin mineral formula

Carnitine

Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a mitochondrial supplement that has antioxidant properties. It is thought to reduce mitochondrial DNA damage and increase nerve growth, which may help to alleviate symptoms of neuropathy.

Carnitine is an amino acid that is produced naturally in the body, and it plays an important role in energy production. Acetyl-L-carnitine supplements are thought to help increase energy levels, improve mental function, and boost antioxidant activity.

Some research suggests that carnitine may help to protect nerve cells from damage, which may be beneficial for people with neuropathy. In a study of people with diabetic neuropathy, those who took carnitine supplements for three months had less pain and improved nerve function compared to those who did not take carnitine.

Carnitine is just 1 of 12 nerve super food supplements in our

Neuro Support

Curcumin

Curcumin is a natural compound found in turmeric, and previous research has shown that it has anti-inflammatory properties.

A new study suggests that curcumin may also help to protect nerve cells from damage, and even promote nerve regeneration.

Peripheral neuropathy is a common side effect of chemotherapy, but a new study has found that curcumin may help to reduce the severity of symptoms.

The study, which was conducted on cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, found that those who received curcumin reported fewer side effects, including peripheral neuropathy.

Curcumin is just 1 of 11 all natural anti-inflammatory medicines, providing relief for billions of people over thousands of years in our

Anti Inflammatory 

D3

A recent study found that vitamin D3 may help reduce nerve pain severity. 

The study looked at individuals who reported having neuropathy, and found that those who took vitamin D3 daily for three months had a decrease in self-reported nerve pain severity of 50%. 

This was regardless of the individual's pre-existing blood levels of vitamin D. This suggests that vitamin D3 may be a helpful option for those looking to reduce their nerve pain symptoms.

Vitamin D3 is more like a hormone than a typical vitamin. So we prefer the liquid sublingual (under the tongue) delivery system so that it gets absorbed easier than going through the digestive tract.

That makes our bioidentical Vitamin D3 formula eve closer to the way your body uses

Nitric Oxide

Research supports that L-arginine and L-citrulline, two amino acids, can help improve nerve function by increasing nitric oxide production in the body. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator, which means it helps improve blood flow to injured and damaged nerves. That means more oxygen and nutrients can get to the injured nerves, which can speed up healing. This increased blood flow can also help reduce pain and improve nerve function.

L-arginine and L-citrulline are found in many foods, but the best way to get high levels of these amino acids is through supplementation. 

Our L-Arginine and L-Citrulline formula is standardized to 98% Plus and extra Nitric Oxide support boost from Astragulus and Notogensing. We call it

Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Upper Cervical Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option that has been shown to be effective for nerve pain. This type of chiropractic care focuses on correcting misalignments in the upper cervical spine, which are often the cause of nerve pain. Upper Cervical Chiropractic never twists or cracks the neck.

Instead, Upper Cervical Chiropractors go through years of post-graduate training studying the blood flow, muscles, joints and nerves in the head and neck. So, they can provide gentle and precise treatments that feel like a blend of acupressure and massage, often providing the dramatic relief and measurable results that neuropathy patients so desperately need.

If you're considering Upper Cervical Chiropractic care for your neuropathy, it's important to find a qualified practitioner who has experience treating this condition. At Dr. Thomas Polucki, Upper Cervical Chiropractic, we have a team of experienced practitioners who are dedicated to providing effective care for our patients.
