Common Questions & Answers About Our Treatment Program For Neuropathy

Does the treatment hurt?

No. We use high quality fine acupuncture needles that are extremely thin, sterile (one use, disposable) and cause no pain.

Will I have to keep coming forever?

The majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way. (This may depend on the cause of your neuropathy, however, and can be discussed at your free consultation.) 

Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?

Most of our patients are able to get great results with once- or twice-weekly visits for the first month or two. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

Can natural medicine REALLY help my problem?

Absolutely. Your body is capable of healing ANY problem, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.

Will I have to do some kind of horrible, super-restrictive detox or elimination diet?

Absolutely NOT. Our program is all about setting you up to succeed. We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your diet or lifestyle and work on those. If appropriate, we can provide a simple herbal formula designed uniquely for you. No impossible-to-follow meal plans or detoxes here. 

How long does it take to see results?

The longer the issues, the longer it usually takes to heal deeply. However, people often feel a positive shift after the very first treatment or two. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.

What are my chances of success?

Results vary, of course. That being said, over 75% of our patients report improvement in symptoms after just a few sessions and many are able to reduce their medication use (under supervision by the prescribing physician) as their bodies begin to function at a higher level. However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.

Why Our Natural Neuropathy Treatment Works So Well…

We address your problem holistically.

With our process, we find and address all factors that are contributing to your problem. We take the time to understand your complete body condition, and what other physical issues or diet/lifestyle/postural habits may be contributing to your neuropathy. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with a long history of neuropathy have experienced significant relief.

We use an all natural approach your doctor may not know about

Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your neuropathy problem and accompanying symptoms or “this is as good as it gets”. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our natural approach.

We help you awaken your body's natural healing system

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to have energy, focus, and joy again. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal anti-inflammatory and anti-pain substances and medicines, and our therapies help it do just that.

We keep it simple and results are quick

Feeling better and reducing discomfort from neuropathy does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head on, and patients often see improved pain relief and agility within WEEKS not MONTHS or YEARS.

We focus on how you FEEL - not just the numbers

While everyone else is looking at pieces of paper with numbers, and not listening to you – WE focus on YOU, your story, and how you feel.

Are you feeling less pain? More capable in your daily tasks? Steadier on your feet? More energy? Less focused on where your hands and feet are, and more on whatever you’re doing?  THAT is OUR focus. NOT more expensive, unnecessary lab tests.

Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction

Stress and tension is often a key component in any form of chronic pain and illness. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system.

The Process Is Simple

Free Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack, including acupuncture, herbs and more. 

You will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR neuropathy issue.

Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You’ll return for 1-3 visits per week to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

Reduced pain

Reduced numbness and tingling

Improved balance and ability to walk

Improved use of your hands to do daily tasks

Less sensitivity to hot/cold

 

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.
