Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral Neuropathy is the term used to describe disorders of the peripheral nerves. Even though over 20 million people in the U.S. suffer from this debilitating condition, accurate information about this multifaceted disorder is hard to come by.

Countless people continue to suffer needlessly simply because they are unaware that revolutionary advances in biotechnologies effectively treat and reverse damaged nerves.

Neuropathy means “disease or abnormality of the nervous system,” which is not a very helpful definition. We need to think of neuropathy as any actual damage that has been done to the nervous system.

While diabetes is one of the most frequent causes of peripheral neuropathy, there are other potential causes aside from diabetes:

  • Chemo-induced neuropathy

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Spinal stenosis

  • Disc herniation and degenerative discs

  • Poor circulation

  • Shingles 

  • Side effects from trauma/injury/accidents

  • Lyme disease

  • Idiopathic neuropathy

  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP)

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

There are two types of symptoms with peripheral neuropathy – negative and positive. Negative signs, which come first, are when damage to the nervous system brings about a loss of a particular function, for example:

  • Loss of reflexes

  • Loss of strength

  • loss of sensation such as numbness

These negative signs are rarely detectable to the patient initially because the brain compensates for the difference in the losses as a form of protection.

Only after some time does sick and damaged nerves develop the positive signs of neuropathy:

  • Tingling
  • Burning
  • Biting, Stabbing & Shooting Pains

This too is a brain-nervous system reaction, and unfortunately, this overreaction rips apart the fiber of the patients’ nerves doing further damage.

Treatments For Peripheral Neuropathy

Each patient will describe their symptoms in their own individual language of “pain.”

This can easily confuse a doctor not trained in the recognition and treatment of neuropathy patients.

So the patient usually continues to suffer, going from doctor to doctor, to stronger and stronger doses of pills until they are either completely drugged up and “out of it” or lost in their own world of suffering.

Some neuropathies come on suddenly, others over many years. Many people are affected only by a weakness in the arms and legs that leads to difficulty standing, walking, or getting out of a chair.

The loss of sensation from the feet, ankles, and toes contributes to patients not having a “good sense” of where their feet are in space (if they are touching the ground, for example) and this causes them to fall very easily.

These under-recognized sensory losses can only be detected with a proper clinical exam. Premier Health of Summit has the necessary tools to uncover the underlying cause of this “silent” nerve damage.

Some patients will eventually become unable to walk at all. Others start with a tingling, pin-pricking feeling that turns into deep sharp stabbing pains and burning electric shocks.

These debilitating problems can also be at their worst at night while trying to sleep because the pain never goes away.

In fact, once started it only gets worse – frequently preventing people from getting around, losing mobility, and eventually requiring amputations.

Currently, ordinary medicine has no cure for peripheral neuropathy. The currently dispensed treatments for suffering patients do not treat nerve damage. They numb the brain and simply mask symptoms in an effort to numb the pain.

Most patients cannot tolerate a drugged existence but feel they have no other option against this horrifying pain.

Sadly, the pain medications eventually stop working as the nerve damage continues to progress.

Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy

We help motivated people struggling with neuropathy, chronic pain and balance issues take control of their neuropathy & underlying conditions so they can live a pain-free, confident life feeling and looking their best… especially if they feel unheard and literally don’t know what to do next.

In order to determine a diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy and properly treat each individual and specific case, Dr. Anderson conducts an in-depth evaluation in three ways:

  • Structurally
  • Neurologically
  • Metabolically

These three aspects of a patient’s body help determine exactly what is happening and provide the necessary information to determine the proper treatment for each specific case.

All bodily functions are controlled by the nervous system and any interference or stress within the nervous system can cause serious health issues. Understanding exactly where the message to the brain is malfunctioning helps determine how to correct it.

It is important to have a metabolic workup to check blood chemistry. This enables us to determine if you’re having an adverse reaction to certain foods which can cause inflammation. It will indicate if there are blood sugar problems, anemia, adrenal issues, and many other metabolic imbalances. Knowing your blood chemistry helps facilitate effective nutritional changes that can be sustainable and encourage proper body functions.

3 Things Most Doctors Don't Know

About Treating Peripheral Neuropathy

#1 You Don’t Have To Live With It, Something Can Be Done For You

Doctors all over the world are telling patients suffering from peripheral neuropathy that “nothing can be done” or “you are going to have to live with it.” They believe that there is no help for patients suffering from the debilitating wrath of peripheral neuropathy.

This could not be further from the truth. According to the National Institute of Health, “peripheral nerves have the ability to regenerate as long as the underlying nerve cell has NOT been killed.”

What does this mean? “Not been killed”... it means that if you wait too long to where the nerve is dead, it cannot be helped. However, the truth is that as long as you have not sustained 85% nerve damage, you will most likely be able to get a 60-100% improvement in your condition.

#2 Many Treatments Aren’t Effective For Managing Neuropathy

The most commonly prescribed treatment for people suffering from neuropathy are anti-seizure medicines that were never created to treat neuropathy – they were created to treat epilepsy!

Essentially, these anti-seizure treatments slow down your brain so that you don’t feel the neuropathy symptoms you are experiencing.

For example, if you have burning sensations in your feet, these medicines will slow your brain down so that the pain signals coming from your feet will become muted, allowing you to think your condition is improving.

However, this approach does absolutely nothing to stop the progression of neuropathy.

#3 When The Treatment Fails, There Is Hope

Fortunately for you, if your doctor's treatments fail, it doesn't mean you're incurable... it just means your doctor was looking in the wrong place!

The majority of doctors tend to get so sidetracked focusing on the area involved that they overlook something incredibly obvious:

If you interfere with any systemic aspect of the nervous system, it can make you feel numbness, burning, tingling, pain, and weakness in other places – like your wrist, hands, arms, legs and feet.

So the key is to take a comprehensive, system-wide approach to identifying the root cause imbalances in what's known as functional neurology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Scheduling & Visits

Why do we start our new patient process with a free phone consultation?

Do you feel like you've literally tried "everything" when it comes to your chronic pain issues?

It's unfortunate that 97% of Americans don't know that there are natural solutions to address their chronic symptoms without mind-altering drugs, surgery, or painful injections.

And that's why we offer a free phone consultation where you can find out what might be at the root of your neuropathy and how to fix the problem once and for all. You can't make new decisions without new information, and Dr. Anderson would love to fill in the blanks for you during that free phone consultation.

If after your phone consultation, Dr. Anderson believes he may be able to help you, he will schedule you for an in-office neurological exam and full medical history review.

What should I expect at my in-office exam?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Anderson will carefully review and discuss your medical history as well as perform an extremely thorough, painless neurological exam. If you qualify for care, Dr. Anderson will make personalized recommendations for treatment.

Will this work for me?

"I've been to so many doctors and specialists yet nobody seems to have an answer. How do I know this will work for me?"

The basic question is, can Dr. Anderson help everyone? And the answer is NO.

If you're looking for a quick fix, a magic pill, then this isn't for you. If you're not open to new ideas or willing to actively participate in your care, then this isn't for you either.
But Dr. Anderson can help most people.

If you're looking for a drug-free non-surgical approach to finally resolve your peripheral neuropathy or other related conditions for good...

Do you accept insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid?

Yes, we work with all insurance companies except for Medicaid. Our billing specialist will work as diligently as possible to get you as much coverage as she can. We can certainly talk about your insurance questions during the free phone consultation and qualification process.

Do I have to be local to participate?

During the initial phase of the program, you will be seeing the doctor and our team in person. If you are accepted and qualify for care, you will need to get to our office in Summit, NJ one to two times per week. That's why most of our clients are based in central New Jersey and surrounding areas, including New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Chatham, Madison, Florham Park, Springfield, Maplewood, Union, Westfield, Scotch Plains, Ridgewood, Hackensack, Hoboken, Jersey City, Staten Island, Lakewood, Princeton, Lawrenceville, Flemington, Basking Ridge, Bernardsville, Mendham, and Clinton as well as Bergen County, Passaic County, Morris County, Essex County, Hunterdon County, Union County, Somerset County, Middlesex County, and Monmouth County.

Is This Program Right For Me?

If you’re tired of shuffling from doctor to doctor without ever getting to the root of your chronic health issues, and if you want to optimize your health holistically through sound lifestyle modifications, advanced lab testing and mind-body techniques without unnecessary medications, then our program may just be what you’ve been looking for all along. Just know that it takes a serious commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary to transform your health once and for all.

What About Supplements & Lab Testing?

As a prospective patient, you may wonder about additional costs not included in our program fee. We know that you’ve likely been to other providers before that may have already run lab tests. That’s why during our comprehensive intake consultation, we will review any existing lab results – so that we can determine if additional, more advanced lab testing is needed to confirm a diagnosis. In terms of supplements, we may recommend certain pharmaceutical-grade supplements for a limited time to support your body’s innate healing process. But long-term, we believe that supplements can’t make up for a poor lifestyle – so our intent is to get you off supplements and unneeded prescription meds as soon as possible.

What Should I Expect From My Discovery Call?

During the free discovery call, we’ll determine whether partnering with our team is the best next step for you. We’ll go over any questions you may have about our approach, and how it differs from what you’ve tried before – so you feel comfortable about the journey ahead.

What Should I Expect From The Initial Appointment?

Ahead of the initial paid appointment, you will complete our extensive background history forms so that we can properly review your history and lab results ahead of your appointment. During the appointment, we will together review your completed intake form, medical history, current, and past lab tests – as well as any medications taken, so that we can arrive at a baseline assessment of your overall health and nutritional status. If needed, we may decide on more advanced lab tests to confirm (or rule out) a specific diagnosis, so we can create a personalized treatment protocol.

Our team at Premier Health of Summit strives to provide you with the most effective and medically advanced techniques available. We are here for you… to help you finally reach your desired health goals.

When we speak over the phone, we’ll assess whether this program is right for you… and answer any questions you may have. Simply pick a time and date that works best for you!
