One of the complications of diabetes is peripheral neuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy is a result of nerve damage which often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet.

What Are Your treatment Options for Peripheral Neuropathy?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Fri, Oct 02, 2015

If you suspect you have or have been diagnosed with neuropathy, also called peripheral neuropathy, you know it is not pleasant. Suffering from burning, shooting or electric shock type pain, especially when you are inactive is a common occurance. In my opinion, the worst symptom of neuropathy is the inability to have a great sense of balance. When your feet can't accurately sense the surface you are walking on, you risk falling.
 
Neuropathy can be a painful, life altering condition. Selecting the proper treatment can lead to progression or regression. You need to choose wisely.

Can Diabetes Be Managed Naturally?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sat, Mar 14, 2015


Diabetes Type 2, once called non-insulin diabetes mellitus and by other names such as adult onset diabetes is a disease process that can be managed naturally and even reversed in certain situations. The key is not to think of managing type 2 diabetes, but rather helping the individual with diabetes to resolve the underlying cause or causes before the condition is irreversible. There is a point of no return.

The biggest concept to understand is that of labeling a disease process and then going about treating the label. Treating the label is NOT what the topic of this article is about. Rather the thrust of the information you are about to read is how can YOU reverse the process that led to your body’s inability to control blood sugar.

Options In Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Jan 05, 2015


Most Options for Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment Include Prescription Medication, However Effective Drug-Free Options Are Available

Many neuropathy patients take the traditional medical route of attempting to treat the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy with powerful drugs. The irony is many medications that are prescribed for the treatment of other health challenges can bring about peripheral neuropathy by causing nerve damage.

Since medications don't help with the underlying causative factor(s) for neuropathy nerve damage, one of the most dreaded and dangerous side effects of peripheral neuropathy often occurs. What is this most dangerous neuropathy symptom? In my opinion it is the loss of balance due to subtle or significant loss of sensation in the feet. The loss of balance can lead to falls and even death!
