Have you ever tried to assemble furniture..

with incomplete instructions?

Or maybe with instructions written in

a language you couldn't read?

What about with the wrong tools?

..Or with no tools at all?

Unfortunately, this is how most people deal with their Neuropathy.

Neuropathy affects over 20 million people in America. 

They are regular people with families, hopes, dreams and goals trying to figure out a way out of a situation as they see this condition spread, worsen and eventually takes over every part of their life. 

 

They research everything they can, scouring the internet, meeting with specialists and doctors of every kind, trying all sorts of medications, cremes, shoes, socks, exercises, a retail device they found online,

only to find that relief wears off and their symptoms get worse.

The worse part is the fear from not knowing what to expect, not knowing what to do, not understanding how, why or what can be done about it. This fear can be as paralyzing as the condition itself.

Unfortunately, Neuropathy is a poorly understood condition..by patients and by most doctors.

Our mission is to 

get pain relief that

continues to last

by empowering you with education

1

Neuropathy is the damage or dysfunction of the nerves

AS A RESULT, of an underlying issue.

Addressing the symptoms of Neuropathy as the only way to treat it is walking into a losing battle.

2

Neuropathy directly affects the body's ability to heal.

It's why the symptoms

  • Get worse over time

  • Travels up the limb to other areas of the body

Aha!.png

In other words,

you don’t ‘get’ Neuropathy.

You get something

that gives you Neuropathy

3

There are over 100 known causes of Neuropathy.

 

Examples include chemotherapy, diabetes, autoimmune disease, medications, hereditary disorders, etc. Idiopathic Neuropathy refers to types with unidentified cause.

4

'No Pain' does not mean 'No Problem'

When medications can no longer block pain, treatment plans change from 'pain management' to 'life preservation' through amputation as the body is no longer able to keep the tisue alive.

Neuropathy affects more than the nerves in the feet and hands.

As it becomes more severe, it affects the brain's cognition and short term memory, along with organs impairment such as sexual dysfunction, bladder control problems, gastrointestinal problems, losing the ability to walk, ulcers and amputation.

Many of these issues can be avoided if treatments

focused on reversing and

healing nerve damage.

The 5 stages of neuropathy

which one are you?

*

Stage 1.png

Stage 1

Symptoms like tingling, numbness or pain are very mild and will come and go. Sometimes, simply rubbing the feet or getting up to move around, will make the symptoms disappear for a while.

Reversal Care in this stage provides the best likelihood of returning completely back to normal. Patient typically responds quickly.

Stage 2.png

Stage 2

The symptoms become more frequent and more severe. Patients may notice new types of symptoms such as burning, pins-and-needles or odd sensations like stepping on rocks or wearing socks when they are not.

 

The symptoms may spread higher up the limb, or affect another part of the body. Symptoms may not be noticeable during the day, but often becomes stronger at night or after sitting or resting for a while.

 

Patients are typically prescribed anti-seizure drugs like gabapentin or lyrica at this stage, which decreases brain activity in order to slow the pain signaling response, but does nothing to slow or stop the progression of Neuropathy.

Reversal care responds very well for patients. Motor nerve damage that controls balance and coordination can be healed as long as the damage is less than two years. Patients have a high chance of returning to normal.

Stage 3.png

Stage 3

This is typically the most painful stage of Neuropathy. Patients may experience additional symptoms such as electric shock feeling, the sensation of "bugs crawling" and hypersensitivity.

As both the condition and the medications start to alter brain signaling, patients may also start to notice cognitive dysfunction such as short term memory loss, mood and behavioral changes or the inability to do basic tasks both physically and mentally.

Pain is so excruciating that higher dosages of pain medication, or stronger medication like morphine, may not completely block the pain.

 

The patient's normal day to day activity is severely impacted and they may apply for disability if they are unable to work for 12 months in a row and if two or more limbs are affected.

Changes in the patient's health due to medication side effects, lack of sleep, increased stress hormones and inflammation, the inability to exercise, mental distress and other factors creates a momentum for this condition to progress even faster than it had before.

Slowing and stopping the Neuropathy from progressing is the first, urgent goal in this stage of Reversal Care.

 

Pain relief will take a little longer than when treatment starts at Stage 1 and 2 due to the severity of the damage.

Pain relief and regaining most normal sensation is likely as long as treatment benefits are stronger than the rate of progression.

Stage 4.png

Stage 4

Patients may experience a "false alarm" because the pain starts to subside as numbness increases.

 

This is very dangerous and happens because the nerves are completely shutting down and can no longer register any sort of sensation. Patients are at high risk of falling due to numbness and loss of balance and coordination, of developing cuts that go unnoticed and do not heal, have severe loss of range of movement and may start the amputation process of their toes or foot. They will most likely rely on a cane, walker or a wheelchair and will lose most of their independence if they have not already done so.

It is possible that patients accepted into our program at this stage may be able to experience pain relief and regain some normal nerve sensation, however permanent nerve damage is likely and will require intensive treatment. 

According to patients who took strong dosages of medication for their debilitating pain at this stage, reported to have stronger pain relief than medication when treated under our program. 

Stage 5.png

Stage 5

Patients are in critical health. Other problems and health complications are likely an issue as well. Pain management treatments like medication, shots and nerve ablation are usually completely ineffective at this point.

Patients are dependent on their spouse, children or caregiver to assist with the majority of activities such as using the washroom, showering, and transportation more so than previous stages. The patient may be transferred to a nursing home if they become completely bedridden.

 

The goal of treatment is to stop the spread of tissue death by amputating the affected body part, from toes, to ankles, knees, and finally up to the hip. Due to Neuropathy affecting the patient's ability to heal, amputation surgery can become life threatening.

Patients may not be eligible for Reversal Care at this stage. However, patients can choose to do treatments to decrease the risk of amputation and pain management if traditional pain management treatments are ineffective.

Types of neuropathy treated

*

Rather than the type of Neuropathy, factors such as the..

  • Severity of the Neuropathy when treatment was started

  • Duration (Certain nerve damages are irreversible after a certain period)

  • And if the cause and contributing factors are addressable 

will make a more accurate determination as to your eligibility for Reversal Care.

All patients will require an exam by our Doctors to determine their candidacy for the program. However, you may refer to a list of Neuropathy types that have successfully been treated under our program below.
