Neuropathy Program

The Neuropathy Breakthrough Program

What Is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy essentially means: an abnormal and degenerative condition of the nervous system.

Neuropathy may be diffuse; affecting many parts of the body.Or it can be focal; affecting a single, specific nerve and part of the body.

Diffuse Neuropathy:

The two categories of Diffuse Neuropathy are Peripheral Neuropathy, affecting the hands and feet and Autonomic Neuropathy, affecting the internal organs.

Peripheral Neuropathy:

This is the most common type; damaging the nerves of the limbs, especially the feet and affecting both sides of the body.

Common symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy are:

1) Numbness or insensitivity to pain or temperature

2) Tingling, burning or prickling sensations

3) Sharp pains or cramps (or like walking on sponges)

4) Extreme sensitivity to touch, even light touch

5) Loss of balance and coordination

Most of these symptoms are often worse at night.

Autonomic Neuropathy (also called Visceral Neuropathy): This is another form of diffuse neuropathy. It affects the nerves that serve the heart and internal organs.

Neuropathy affecting the organs via nerve damage can lead to:

- Urinary incontinence

- Lack of sexual function

- Digestion issues (the stomach emptying slowly, bloating, persistent nausea and vomiting)

- Lower bowel problems (constipation, diarrhea)

- The cardiovascular system (which controls the circulation throughout the body)

Damage to this system affects the signal for the blood in regulating blood pressure and heart rate. One can feel dizzy upon standing as a result (orthostatic hypotension). This type of Neuropathy affects the system in the perception of pain from heart disease. People may not experience angina as a warning sign of heart disease and suffer painless heart attacks.

It can also lead to Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. This condition makes it difficult to recognize and treat an insulin reaction.

Amputations Caused by Pre-Diabetes to Full-Blown Diabetes:

Uncontrolled diabetes (even on medication) results from a poor diet, lack of exercise and unstable sugar levels. These can lead to conditions such as Neuropathy, which affects the whole body potentially leading to amputations.

Unstable Glucose levels (high blood sugar due to diet) harms nerves and blood vessels. This affects circulation, especially the peripheral area of the body, such as limbs and extremities. This will then lead to Diabetic Neuropathy, which damages nerve fibers, causing numbness that leads to injuries and/or infections due to decreased sensations. The blood circulation is then compromised, leading to infections, injuries, foot ulcers, which can then lead to foot and leg amputations. This is because the blood cannot circulate fast enough to heal wounded areas.

The Cause: Malnutrition

Malnutrition Neuropathy is caused by eating yourself sick; eating foods out of a box, bag or can. These foods are all dead foods – no live enzymes are present.

This condition of Neuropathy was brought to attention during WWII. This provided an unprecedented opportunity for observation of the effects of nutritional deficiencies. Men of many races were subjected to years of defective nutrition as prisoners of war. This malnutrition affected the most highly differentiated cells of the organism that would suffer the most. In fact, they found that the nervous system shows the severest and most common lesions.

These findings were not due to the region of the world these men were in – as the findings were the same no matter where someone was on the planet. Malnutrition was the only common denominator in all the physical ailments these men experienced.

This is essentially a degenerative or katabolic nature arising under conditions of deprivation. The imbalance of the altered diet being given to the POWs affected their gastro-intestinal tract, leading to defective absorption and defective biosynthesis. Due to the altered balance of the deficient diet, reduction of good quality proteins, fats and vitamins, the body was starving for good balanced food.

This level of deficient nutrition is now prevalent in all the foods we consume today. It is completely lacking in live enzymes, vitamins and minerals, which are essential to healing the body and allowing it to function properly. This malnutrition affects the central and peripheral nervous system as a result.

The Neuropathy Program is amazing because it addresses the nutritional deficiency issues you have. It gets the body to start digesting and assimilating food better. It also allows the body to start healing from the inside and decreases the degenerative process of the nervous system.
