Neuropathy. What does that really mean? It’s a fancy medical term that means nerve disease or nerve damage. Neuropathies that can be centralized, meaning coming from your brain or spinal cord. Then you have what are called peripheral neuropathies. These are when the symptoms manifest outside of the brain, your spinal cord, so more in your hands, for example, or in your feet or in your legs, numbness, tingling, burning pain, those types of symptoms that occur in the periphery.

There are a number of different reasons why we might see somebody developing a or a nerve damage type of problem. Some of those causes can be physical in nature. For example, a herniated disc can put pressure on a nerve causing a lot of compression that leads to nerve damage and numbness, tingling, loss of motor control or loss of muscle or weakness. So this is a physical neuropathy, meaning there’s a physical damage that is occupying space. It’s putting pressure, compressing the nerve, and that can happen as a result of a disc. Then you can also have neuropathies as a result of other forms of trauma. Sometimes people get into car accidents and they damage the scalene muscles, the muscles in the neck or the tissues deepen the neck or they’ll stretch the plexus of nerves in the neck and shoulder called the brachial plexus. And those types of traumatic damages can also cause a neuropathy.

You might come across some environmental exposures that can actually create nerve damage. An example of an environmental exposure would be from pesticides. Organophosphates as a class of pesticides are notorious and very well documented in medical literature to create nerve damage and nerve problems.

Heavy metals can also create or contribute to neuropathy. Many of you have probably heard of mercury toxicity. Mercury is a known neurotoxin. We know it can create damage. We also know from research on dental amalgam that if you had your fillings done longer ago than 20 years, the likelihood that you have silver amalgams in your mouth that contain a form of mercury is very, very high. So aside from vaccines and aside from amalgams, some people are eating high quantities of fish and, and and getting mercury exposure from bigger, larger fish because of contamination in some of the waters.

Mercury, arsenic, lead, and thallium. These are some of the main metals really that we can see create a neurological type of damage that causes neuropathy, numbness, tingling, burning pain, changes in motor strength. Losing strength in your hands or losing strength in your arms or legs, weakness, those are signs of the potential for neuropathy.
