If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy you may have been told that the only thing you can do about it is to reduce the symptoms with painkillers. However, according to one doctor, a lot of what you’ve been told about the treatment of neuropathy is dead wrong.
Yes, according Dr. Randall C. Labrum there is a solution to peripheral neuropathy! He know’s this because, as a former neuropathy sufferer himself, he used it to rid himself of the condition… permanently. In this article you’ll learn about some of the most common misconceptions concerning neuropathy.
Peripheral Neuropathy is an extremely annoying and sometimes even debilitating disorder that is caused by damage to the peripheral nervous system. Today it affects tens of millions of Americans, and many more millions of people world wide, making it a true epidemic.
Dr. Labrum goes from place to place giving lectures, classes and seminars on the subject of Peripheral Neuropathy. Everywhere he goes there is one thing that continues to cause him great concern. That is the fact that, without exception, the attendees of his seminars believe their condition can’t be cured.
What’s even worse, Dr. Labrum states, is that the medical community is largely to blame for this misinformation! He’s made it his life goal to teach others the same simple home treatment method he used to treat himself and that has kept him neuropathy free for over 10 years now.
In my view it is the job and responsibility of the family doctor to teach the patient about their neuropathy problem. It is also the doctor’s job to train the patient in what they can do to improve and manage their neuropathy case successfully.

Given the misconceptions of the attendees at his seminars, it’s obvious that this training is hardly ever being done. Not out of evil intent… but because of the lack of understanding or even the inability to diagnose their patients symptoms as peripheral neuropathy to begin with.
Many neuropathy patients, suffering with tingling or burning foot or hand pain, numbness and other hard to describe neuropathy symptoms, don’t even know the name of their condition, says Dr. Labrum! And, while some others do… that is pretty much all they know.
Because of all the misunderstandings and misconceptions concerning peripheral neuropathy, many people think they just have to ‘learn to live’ with their symptoms. A huge shame, because many people can effectively rid themselves of this disease.
Here are the most commonly INCORRECT “facts” that suffering neuropathy patients often come to believe because they have been misinformed, according to Dr. Labrum:
It’s unknown what causes neuropathy
This is completely incorrect, states Labrum. Most causes of neuropathy are absolutely know and not very difficult to understand either. Some of the most common causes are:
Cancer patients being treated with chemotherapy are at very high risk for developing neuropathy. This is because the poisonous effects of the powerful cancer killing drugs are known to damage the sensory nerves in the hands, feet and other peripheral areas.
Another well-known catalyst for peripheral neuropathy is diabetes.
Low blood pressure
A lesser known issue that increase the risk of neuropathy is the sudden reduction of blood pressure due to anti-hypertensive prescriptions. Although not well known, this is perhaps one of neuropathy’s leading causes, says Dr. Labrum.
Sadly, since neither surgery nor prescription drugs are effective in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy, most physicians just aren’t willing to take the time to educate their patients in types of cases. Instead they often simply tell the patient that there is no known cause.
There is no treatment for Neuropathy
After hearing that there is no known cause for their neuropathy, they are then often told that there is also no treatment and that the best that can be offered are powerful, painkilling drugs. Truly an unfortunate (and completely incorrect) approach to a very treatable condition, says Dr. Labrum.
In reality, say’s Labrum, the best treatment procedures for peripheral neuropathy do not need to be administered by a doctor. This is why few doctors are motivated to learn about these treatments, let alone teach them to their patients. Also, many family doctors are completely unaware of these methods.
One of the many easy things that you can do, says Dr. Labrum, is to simply recline on the sofa with your feet propped up on the back of the sofa above the level of the body. Now just take a fifteen minute nap in this position. This simple “exercise” allows gravity to move stagnated, toxin laden blood in the feet and lower legs back to the heart and lungs where it can be oxygenated and cleansed.
Many Neuropathy patients don’t want to spend the rest of their lives on strong painkillers. They want to battle the actual cause of the disease… not just the symptoms. Unfortunately these people are often left to look for alternative treatment methods for themselves. It’s for these people that Dr. Labrum has created a simple step-by-step program (the same one he used to treat his own neuropathy) to help them eliminate the disease for good.
Neuropathy gets worse with time… you just have to accept that
Yes, if left untreated neuropathy will probably get worse over time. However, if the patient take remedial action and applies corrective self-treatment procedures the symptoms can actually be greatly improved, states Dr. Labrum.
As a matter of fact, many people who start using Labrum’s program often start noticing improvements almost immediately and find their neuropathy getting better each day.
If you are diabetic, your neuropathy can’t be treated
This is another common statement, and like the others mentioned in this article… it’s completely untrue, states Dr. Labrum. Yes, diabetes does indeed complicate the condition of neuropathy. However, it does not prevent the diabetic from getting significant improvements in their neuropathy condition, says Labrum.
Most people with severe diabetic neuropathy would be very satisfied with 30-70% improvement of their condition. And that is exactly what Labrum has experienced by teaching diabetic individuals simple methods to increase circulation and regenerate the health of their sensory nerves in their legs, feet, and hands.
Unfortunately, when it comes to the misconceptions addressed in this article, it’s ultimately the responsibility of the neuropathy sufferer to prove them incorrect for themselves, says Dr. Labrum.
And that is exactly what many people are doing. Using Labrum’s program, many neuropathy sufferers are proving to themselves that they can improve their condition without resorting to drugs or painkillers. Using the simple, natural, drug-free methods is helping them significantly reduce their symptoms… helping them get their lives back in the process.
