Neuropathy Blend Essential Oil
Neuropathy refers to actual damage to the peripheral nerves. Damage to these peripheral nerves (other than spinal or those in the brain), generally starts as tingling in hands and feet and slowly spreads along limbs to the trunk.
Numbness, sensitive skin, neuralgic pain, weakening of muscle power can all develop in varying degrees. Most common causes include complications from diabetes (diabetic neuropathy), alcoholism, vitamin B12 deficiency, tumors, too many pain killers, exposure and absorption of chemicals, metallic's, pesticides, and many other causes.
B vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, and organic sulfur are important in repairing nerve damage and quenching pain from inflamed nerves. (Conyza canadensis) may boost production of pregnenolone and human growth hormone.
