There are several possible causes for peripheral neuropathy. One of the most common is diabetes. It also seems to inflict people who have had chemo-therapy. Another, less talked about reason is chronic alcoholism, defined as:
- Men who have 15 or more drinks a week
- Women who have 12 or more drinks a week
- Anyone who has five or more drinks per occasion at least once a week
Experts don’t believe so much that it’s the alcohol that causes the problem, but rather the the poor nutritional habits of most alcoholics. So, if you’re starting to have numbness in your hands or feet, or tingling or burning sensations in those areas,
Step one: Give up alcohol.
Step two: Talk to your doctor to make sure you’re getting the proper nutrition in your diet. Dietary supplements may be needed as well.
Step three: Talk to a doctor who works every day with neuropathy symptoms, like Dr Jason Davis, to evaluate your condition and find out if your neuropathy symptoms, no matter the cause, can be eliminated. You don’t have to live with numbness and tingling in your hands or feet for the rest of your life. Dr. Davis and the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic can treat your symptoms and give you your life back.
