Natural Pain Inhibitors (Neuropathy)
There are 2 types of nerves motor and sensory. The motor nerves (axons) carry electrical inpulse from the brain to all the muscles in the body which causes motion.The axons can be attacked by the immune or diabetes (demyelinated) which causes neuropathic weakness.
The other is the sensory nerves (dendrites) as these carry impulses to the brain in sensation (touch,temperature and pain).Again diabetes or inflammation causes these dendrites to over excite and cause pain.
Most on here have this type so i'll address the pain issue.There are a couple of elements that may help and one is Magnesium and the other is Gaba.I'll try to keep this simple...the neurons have ''Channel Ions'' that allow calcium and magnesium to pass thru every millisecond so when too much calcium goes in and not enough magnesium to counteract then the neurons become over excited with pain so try to increase magnesium levels and decrease calcium and see if this helps..Secondly Gaba is a neurotransmitter in the brain that calms pain receptors and when levels are low then certain pain receptors in the brain fire up so try inxcreasing these levels and if these natural elements help instead of depending on pain meds..
Lastly do not forget Fish Oils as they excert powerful anti inflammatory properties in the body to also help in this regard. And what about Motor Neuropathy well my advice on that is more in line along Multiple sclerosis as they are cousins to each other but most here do not have this as i read their posts so another day on that. So remember increase magnesium and gaba to see if these help and they are very inexpensive....Later !!
