- What is peripheral neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a medical condition in which the nerves that travel from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body function improperly. People who suffer from peripheral neuropathy commonly experience burning, tingling, numbness and/or shooting pains to their feet and legs. Their symptoms are usually worse at night. There are over 100 known causes of peripheral neuropathy. A partial list of these causes includes diabetes, thiamine deficiency, alcoholism, trauma, exposure to toxins, autoimmune diseases, and infections. Sometimes no cause can be determined.
- Can Peripheral Neuropathy be Successfully Treated?
Yes, some forms of peripheral neuropathy may be successfully treated. For example, people suffering from a peripheral neuropathy caused by thiamine deficiency may experience significant relief by increasing their thiamine intake.
- What is Neuremedy and how does it work?
Neuremedy is a medical food that nourishes dysfunctional nerves allowing them to conduct impulses more normally. The specialized formulation in Neuremedy contains benfotiamine. Benfotiamine has been used since the early 1960's to successfully treat tens of thousands of patients suffering from peripheral neuropathy in Asia and Europe. It has been extensively studied in the scientific literature and has been shown to be safe and effective. Realm Laboratories has recently made Neuremedy available in the U.S.A.
Adequate blood levels of the micro-nutrient thiamine (Vitamin B1) are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Recent studies have shown that many people suffering from peripheral neuropathy have low plasma levels of this essential micro-nutrient. They are unable to maintain adequate plasma thiamine levels through normal dietary means. They need a more bioactive form of thiamine for their nerves to function properly. This population includes, but is not limited to, the elderly, people with diabetes, and patients on certain medications. For these people, Neuremedy alleviates the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy by delivering a highly bioactive form of the micro-nutrient thiamine to where it is needed, the nerve cells. Neuremedy works by nourishing the nerves.
- What about safety and drug interactions?
The active ingredient in Neuremedy, benfotiamine, has been used since the early 1960's to successfully treat tens of thousands of people suffering from peripheral neuropathy in Asia and Europe. It has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective. It does not have any known significant adverse effects and can be safely taken with medicines and supplements
- How quickly does Neuremedy work?
Some people experience dramatic relief from their symptoms within a few days of taking Neuremedy. Some need to take Neuremedy for as long as two months in order to start to experience relief from their symptoms. Patients who stop taking Neuremedy often have a return of their original symptoms. Unfortunately, Neuremedy does not reduce the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy for everyone. Ask your doctor if Neuremedy is right for you.
- What is the proper way to take Neuremedy?
The proper dosage of Neuremedy is one capsule twice a day with or without meals as directed by your physician.
