I want to be completely honest with you. For many years, I, like most Doctors, also thought Neuropathy was a life-sentence for my patients. Boy, was I wrong! If only I could step back in time, knowing what I know now.
You see, this "wisdom" is still generally accepted as fact by many healthcare professionals, and it's largely the result of drug companies controlling the message and knowledge being presented to your Doctor... that Peripheral Neuropathy is a hopeless condition to treat, and that the only "real option" for relief is to pump their patients full of drugs.
As overwhelmed as medical doctors are these days, the easiest approach is to simply buy into this myth. It's the old "take these pills and call me if you still feel weird tomorrow" approach.
Which is exactly what the drug companies want. They want you to feel like there is no point in looking elsewhere... or trying something new. They want you to give up and surrender yourself to your Neuropathy condition... and continue buying their expensive meds!
It is a mistake, that I made too early in my career, before I developed the right way for treating Peripheral Neuropathy permanently!
