There are many natural things you can do to prevent and even reverse diabetic peripheral neuropathy, despite conventional medicine’s contention that such nerve damage is permanent and cannot be reversed. This is no more true than the belief by many doctors that a whole host of chronic diseases cannot be reversed, when there is plenty of “living proof” to the contrary.
As is most often the case, when allopathic medicine says something cannot be cured or reversed they should add the qualifying phrase… “with mainstream medicine.”
Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Explained
Each time a diabetic consumes carbohydrates and other foods which have high glycemic index values, their sugar levels rise above normal. When this happens the elevated blood glucose can harm microscopic blood vessels and hyperactive nerve cells which become damaged and worn out. This leads to the degeneration of nerves which results in both numbness as well as higher sensitivity to pain and external stimuli (such as touch, heat, and cold).
