How do you get relief from neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a condition of the nerves that causes numbness, tingling, pain or pins and needles sensations in the hands, feet, arms or legs. It occurs differently for different people, but is always caused by nerve damage of some sort. All Neuropathy is caused by damage to the nerves.

Nerves are the communication lines of the body. Electrical signals from the brain travel through the nerves and give instructions to the various body parts. The body receives information from the environment through the senses and sends this Information to the brain via the nerves.

Breakdown of the myelin sheath around the nerves. Without this protection the electrical signals are not transferred properly just like if you stripped the covering off the electrical wires in you house.

As the nerve damage gets worse, the nerves either lose their ability to transmit information (numbness) or they start sending false signals (Pain or tingling).

Neuropathy is a condition where the nerves have sustained enough damage that there is noticeable numbness, pain or tingling.

Sometimes the source of the nerve damage will need to be reduced or eliminated in order to see results (mediations, alcohol, etc)

It is becoming widely known that certain special forms of B vitamins have a lot to do with repairing nerve damage. Some people have tried large amounts of ordinary B1, B12 or B complex vitamins and they find that it does not help them. Ordinary B vitamins are water-soluble and they wash out of the body long before they get to the required levels needed in your blood stream sot that it can begin repairing nerve damage.

There is a type of B1 called Benfotiamine that is fat soluable so the body can hold onto the vitamin and actually use it. Also needed is that the B12 converted to Methyl B12 which means that the body doesn't have to convert it in the liver, but it will be readable absorbed and used.
