High blood sugar can cause damage to small blood vessels and this, in turn, can lead to neve damage due to oxygen deprivation. This type of nerve damage is known as Diabetic Neuropathy.
The first symptom of Diabetic Neuropathy is often numbness, tingling, or pain in the feet. Symptoms are usually minor at first, and because most nerve damage occurs over several years, mild cases may go unnoticed for a long time. Sometimes though, the onset of pain may be sudden and severe.
The general symptoms of this type of nerve damage may include: Numbness, tingling, or pain in the toes, feet, legs, hands, arms, and fingers. Wasting of the muscles of the feet or hands. Indigestion, nausea, or vomiting. Diarrhea or constipation and much more.
There are many responses to this condition. The medical response is to use drugs to control the pain - this does not cure and treat the actual condition.
The diet response - is to eat healthier foods and exercise more. This can help control the sugar imbalances and improve blood circulation. Both are important in halting additional nerve damage.
But the question remains: Is it possible to reverse some of this damage, can the nerves be rebuilt back to full function?
David B. Phillips, Ph.D. believes this can occur. Several years ago, Dr. Phillips created the ear thermometer, that has replaced mercury thermometers in hospitals, doctor's office and homes. He is also the inventor of The ReBuilder®.
The ReBuilder® is a device designed to treat diabetic neuropathies and other neurpathies. The ReBuilder® works by sending electrical signals that travel up one foot and leg and down the other leg and foot. The ReBuilder's impulse travels from one foot to the other, rebuilding your nerves, increasing blood flow, and strengthening your calf muscles.
Specifically the ReBuilder®:
- Relieves your pain and numbness.
- Helps you sleep all night.
- Restores your balance and mobility.
- Restores the feeling in your feet and hands.
- Reduces or eliminates the need for pain medications.
- Eases nerve pain.
- Is fully registered with FDA.
