  • What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

    Peripheral neuropathy is a condition caused by nerve damage, leading to symptoms such as:

    • Numbness and tingling
    • Burning pain
    • Unusual or loss of sensations
    • Muscle weakness
    • Deep stabbing pain
    • Balance problems

    This condition can result from various issues, including poor blood flow, high blood sugar (diabetes), chronic infections, pesticide exposure, and genetic factors. Auto-immune diseases, where the immune system attacks the body's nerves, can also be a cause.

  • Can Peripheral Nerves Heal?

    Yes, nerves can heal if the underlying cause of damage is addressed. Effective healing involves determining the cause, severity, and type of nerve damage and providing appropriate support and treatment.

  • Our Comprehensive Treatment Program

  • Nerve Regeneration Essentials

    Nerve cells require two essential elements for healing: fuel and activation. Our treatment protocol is built upon these principles, ensuring comprehensive care and optimal outcomes for our patients.

  • Our Treatment Goals

    • Optimize the body's environment for nerve healing
    • Increase blood flow to the nerves
    • Stimulate damaged nerves to reduce pain and improve balance
    • Decrease brain-based pain

What Makes Us Unique: Four Vital Components

Each vital component is equally important for patient results.

  • VITAL COMPONENT #1: Electromagnetic Infrared Therapy

    We use Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) to increase blood flow and repair nerves. This light therapy triggers Vasoendothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), promoting the creation of new blood vessels needed to repair nerve damage. These vessels grow around peripheral nerves, providing the nutrients necessary for healing. With 21 peer-reviewed studies and a 97% success rate in treating peripheral neuropathy, LLLT is a cornerstone of our protocol.

  • VITAL COMPONENT #2: Electrostimulation

    Our state-of-the-art digital electrotherapeutic stimulation, known as Nerve Re-Education, assists in nerve growth and repair. Used by Cancer Centers of America to help chemotherapy patients, this therapy can also be performed at home for daily benefits. Nerve Re-Education can provide immediate pain relief and restoration of normal sensation.

  • VITAL COMPONENT #3: Advanced Nutrition Therapy

    Proper nutrition supports our other VITAL COMPONENTS and is crucial for optimal tissue and nerve repair. Our Advanced Nutritional Therapies are designed to accelerate healing by affecting inflammation, blood flow, and bioavailable nitric oxide, ensuring comprehensive support for your recovery.

  • VITAL COMPONENT #4: In-Clinic Treatments & Online Education

    Our in-clinic treatments are a vital component of successful neuropathy care. Complementing your home infrared electromagnetic and electrostimulation therapy, you'll visit our office once a week for specialized treatments. Our Board Certified neuropathy expert doctors will create a personalized, non-invasive treatment plan based on thorough assessments.

Electrostimulation Supporting Studies:

1) 551 patients by Rene Hartz, MD, and Rita Wickhan, PH.D. at the Northern Michigan University, published this abstract:" 551 patients were treated with the device system, a unique TENS/EMS electrical stimulation device to determine if the quality of life was improved. Fully 91% reported success. No side effects were reported. The device is safe and effective for treating peripheral neuropathy."

2) 472 patients, self-selected, self-diagnosed, and self-treated with only this single modality, 74% reported immediate relief after their first treatment, average pain drop after any treatment was 40%, 81% reported satisfaction, and only 10% returned their device.

3) 530 patients whose physicians had run out of effective therapies, found the on the internet brought the device to the attention of their MD. These 530 MD's, unknown to each other, and not advised of the study, prescribed a 60-day trial requiring a follow up visit to determine the efficacy of the device. All 530 physicians, after re-examining their individual patient 60 days later, ordered the purchase of the device.

The reason our electrostimulation device can reduce both pain and numbness (unlike a common TENS that only treats pain and can leave a patient with long term residual numbness) is three-fold, and no other device has these patented features.

1. The device reads the patient's unique signature dysfunctional waveform, and then uses a computer-generated compensating waveform to cancel that asymmetry, (think Bose® noise canceling headphones).

2. 20% of the device’s gentle impulses are EMS in nature and stimulate the venous muscle pump in the calves to increase local blood supply. If one is to stimulate the nerves, they will need more fresh blood in and more blood out to take out metabolic toxins.

3. The specific 7.83 frequency of the device causes the brain to release endorphins which are internally created pain relievers that travel via the blood stream throughout the body. These endorphins reduce pain in other parts of the body, helps the patient get to sleep, and then sleep all night.

4. The device’s proprietary dual function waveform: 80% of its impulses stimulate nerves, while 20% stimulates muscle enhances and maintains the nerve/muscle connection so the patient's gait is improved (no falling) and muscle cramps are reduced.

5. Accommodation to the impulses are avoided by the device use of a patient imperceptible Fibonacci based formula to slightly vary the frequency, pulse width, and intensity.
