Your Next Step Doesn’t Have to Hurt!

Your Next Step Doesn’t Have to Hurt!20 million people suffer from peripheral neuro-pathy. Neuropathy simply means “nerve disease or damage.” Symptoms include burning, tingling, sensitivity or numbness in the feet or hands. Peripheral neuropathy is a progressive condition which impacts quality of life, causing pain, sleep disruption, or trouble walking. Maintaining a happy, active, quality of life can become a chore.

WHAT CAUSES PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY?
Diabetes and chemotherapy are the most common causes. Other causes of neuropathy include diseases (hypothyroidism, autoimmune), physical injury (trauma, injury or surgery), idiopathic (no known cause), infections, shingles, vitamin deficiencies, exposure to harsh chemicals, cholesterol statins and more. This is a progressive, debilitating condition that worsens over time.

“Up to 70% of diabetics and 40% of chemo patients will develop peripheral neuropathy.”

TREATMENT OPTIONS
While there is no cure for peripheral neuropathy, symptoms can be relieved.

1.    Medication is commonly prescribed, but only masks the symptoms and may cause harsh side effects. Examples include nerve pain medication (Lyrica, Gabapentin), narcotics (Oxycodone), antidepressants, and anti-seizure medications.

2.    Alternative treatments include anesthetic (Lidocaine), creams (Capsaicin), and holistic treatments such as acupuncture or supplements.

3.    Surgery may improve symptoms temporarily.

4.    Near Infrared Therapy (NIR) is a lesser known, but highly effective treatment that is drug-free, safe, and painless. NIR therapy uses cutting-edge, scientific technology to provide relief–without harmful side effects.

THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL – RELIEF FOR SYMPTOMS
At Lumen Care Center, we provide real relief from nerve pain and numbness. We successfully treat patients who have been told, “we can’t help you” or “just live with it” by their doctors or treatment providers. Depressed and discouraged, they turn to us for relief.

Most NIR therapy patients achieve significant improvement in their symptoms and describe their improvement as “tremendous,” “life-changing, and “outstanding.” At Lumen Care Center, we specialize in treating peripheral neuropathy. Our professional, caring medical center is led by Dr. Kipp Van Camp, a respected doctor, interventional radiologist, and medical researcher.

HOW IT WORKS
Our comprehensive treatment program is drug-free, painless, and safe, and incorporates Near Infrared Therapy (NIR) as part of a proven treatment protocol using a leading FDA-cleared device. Pulsed wavelengths of red and infrared light increase nitric oxide, which improves circulation, reducing nerve pain and inflammation. Light therapy has been used by the medical profession for over 20 years, and is based on the work of prominent Nobel Prize researchers.

Isn’t it time to improve your peripheral neuropathy symptoms?? Isn’t it time to resume a more active lifestyle? Despite what you have been told, you don’t have to live with the pain. There is a drug-free, safe, painless treatment option.
