"The tennis elbow pain I felt when you pushed on my forearm is gone! How does that work"? "The sharp stabbing pain that made me pause talking between each word is so much better two hours after the laser treatment". "Dr. J, I am not shuffling any longer, the plantar fascitis pain in my foot is virtrually gone after the laser treatment"! These words were music to my ears as patients experienced the benefits of the Multi-Wave Locked System on its first day of use.

Mercury toxicity is the great mimicker of a host of health challenges.
Here is a sample of what one should know about mercury toxicity.
1: Mercury is known to denervate nerve fibers, similar to the pathology of multiple sclerosis. In other words it makes it so the nerves do not work.
3: Mercury can inhibit the action (binding) of happy hormones, like serotonin, at the synapse (nerve to nerve connection) leading to depression.
4: Mercury can cause hearing loss.
I received an exciting email yesterday, from Cyrex Labs, about new improvements to the already outstanding testing for gluten intolerance and autoummunity testing. Cyrex Laboratories has done it again!
The main problem with the treatments some doctors prescribe for peripheral neuropathy is that they never go after the root of the problem, but focus on the symptoms – in your case; numbness, tingling, burning and/or a feeling of weakness. And when these treatments wear off (which they do), you'll often find they only cover up your problem for a short time and do nothing to fix what's causing your neuropathy in the first place.
Treating only the symptoms of neuropathy for an extended periond of time, can result in a condition that has progressed too far, to the point other root cause treatments can no longer be of help.
Off-Label Drug Use
Some doctors give their patients anti-seizure meds like Neurontin for their neuropathy. Anti-seizure meds like Neurontin, Klonopin, and Topamax were not meant to cure neuropathy! (I guess it doesn’t matter that Pfizer, the maker of Neurontin, was fined $430 million dollars in 2004 for recommending that Neurontin be used “off label,” or for purposes other than its intended use).
Peripheral neuropathy (PN) describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body.
