Many recognize that diabetes is a dangerous, life-threatening disease but are unaware of the hidden dangers it presents. One of those symptoms is diabetic neuropathy.
Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that is caused by diabetes due to the presence of high blood glucose levels in your blood. Symptoms depend on which type of neuropathy you have, but the one I’ll be addressing today — and the one I suffer from — is peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that typically affects the feet and legs and sometimes affects the hands and arms. This type of neuropathy is very common and impacts between one-third to one-half of people with diabetes.
And the thing is — even if you reverse your diabetes, chances are you’re still suffering from a lack of feeling in your feet and legs long afterward. That’s unfortunately been the case for me, but the therapies I’ve been undergoing make me feel as though I’ve turned the clock back 20 years!
In the video above, you’ll get a firsthand look at one of my neuropathy treatments with Jason Coker, a therapist from Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat To Live retreat. You’ll see how “Neuromuscular Release Therapy” is helping me heal my advanced neuropathy by restoring healthy blood flow to my nerves and rehydrating my fascial tissue. As a bonus it helped me reduce stiffness, joint and muscle pain, and increase my range of motion.
Now my body just wants to move more than ever, like it used to! Like it’s designed to!
