Neuropathy is described as a collection of disorders that occurs when nerves of the peripheral nervous system (the part of the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord) are damaged. The condition is generally viewed as peripheral neuropathy, and the main causes are due to damage to nerve axons so cures are difficult to find to resolve these issues but it can be controlled.
This includes the motor, sensory and autonomic nerves that connect the spinal cord to muscles, skin and internal organs. It usually affects the hands and feet and causes a number of symptoms including weakness, numbness, tingling and pain. 
Neuropathy usually causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet and can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic disorders and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is actually diabetes.
There are several ways to manage neuropathy and prevent its symptoms. Firstly, a regime of foot health is important, especially for diabetics. Patients should verify feet for any signs of blisters, cuts or calluses and avoid tight fitting shoes and socks.
Doctors can also advise an exercise plan that will reduce neuropathy pain and control blood sugar levels. Patients should also cease smoking and eat healthy meals. Massages on a regular basis will also help by stimulating nerves and temporarily relieving pain. Finally, it is advised to avoid prolonged pressure on knees or elbows in order to prevent new nerve damage.
Some types of peripheral neuropathy can be cured, but most cannot. The regime for therapy is directed at treating the underlying disease and at refining the symptoms with the correct medications. An experienced neurologist can help patients feel more comfortable and their quality of life can be greatly improved.

Cancer is a symptom, not a disease. Neuropathy is a symptom. Example: The result of eating wrong for many years will cause symptoms, diabetes. The result of eating wrong or exposing your self to a toxin over time will cause a symptom, cancer. To prevent or cure symptoms one must rid the body of toxins that were accumalated over time. After you remove toxins from the body you then start to nourish the cells in your body and bring them back to normal function. Your symptoms should then disappear. It is not an over-night remedy. It took time to get cancer or any other symptom. Many say it's genetic. I say your diet was almost the same as your parents diet. My father and his father both have heart disease and diabetes. I noticed they both eat the same. Lots of meat, sugar,processed foods, starchy foods, occasional alcohol, little to no excercise. Is it genetic? Or is it what you eat and how you treat your body. If we were to take away all man made or altered foods what do you have? You would just have vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and water. These foods contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins your body needs to function and repair itself. These foods pack a nutritional punch when in their raw state. Mother natures food is literally LIVE food. Especially organic.
If you saw your cells in a electron microscope you would literally see your cells alive and moving. What if I cooked your cells in a frying pan or put it under fire, what do you think you would see? Dead cells. MY point is cooked foods is dead food. Especially meat. America eats to much meat. Especially low quality meat that has hormones and antibiotics in it. Did you know some parts of Europe and parts of the world will not buy meat from America? You know why? Our meat is of low quality and is tainted. Your body also doesn't need meat to live. Have you ever heard of someone dying because they didn't eat meat? THe tibetan monks are vegetarians some are vegan. They are 10x more healthier than anyone of us here in America. Check out a huge study that backs up why we don't need meats in our diet.This study is called "The China Study." You can easily get high quality proteins without the bad fat from nuts, and some vegetables. Going back to fruits and vegetables. I would like to recommend you study and research The Gerson Institute or The Gerson Therapy.
