2. Take control of your diet
Taking control of your diet is one of the most effective lifestyle changes you can make to help slow and even reverse the damage cause by neuropathy. The number one cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. Making changes to your diet to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels is the most effective treatment for reversing diabetic neuropathy.
Regardless of the cause of your neuropathy, diet can play a big role in fighting it. Eliminating certain neuropathy aggravators – such as artificial sweeteners, sugars, refined grain, casein based products and others – can help reduce some of the pain and aggravation caused by your nerves. Additionally, eating a diet rich in vitamins such as B2 and B12 can help repair and rebuild damaged nerves.
