CAUSES OF NEUROPATHY
Today, most people with neuropathy (nerve damage) are only treating the symptoms and not getting to the root of the problem.
Major Causes of Neuropathy
One of the major causes of neuropathy are certain prescription drugs. Most drugs that lower cholesterol will cause neuropathy, many blood pressure medications and even a few antibiotics will also cause neuropathy.
For diabetics, higher than normal sugar levels (as a result of a diet that is too high in carbohydrates and incorrect nutrition) in the body can often cause diabetic neuropathy. Furthermore, many medications given to people with neuropathy or diabetes actually makes the problem worse instead of correcting the cause of the problem.
The only way to correctly manage diabetic neuropathy is to address the real causes, not the symptoms. This involves improving the control of your blood sugar levels, implementing a lower carbohydrate diet and taking the nutrients your body needs.
Chemotherapy drugs and radiation treatments often cause neuropathy.
Sports and accident injuries, as well as operations where the nerves are damaged, can cause neuropathy that may not show up till many years afterward.
Even the build-up of toxins in the body as a result of the pollution in our air and water, and the preservatives in the food we eat, can cause neuropathy.
