The Truth About Peripheral Neuropathy  


So let me guess. You’ve got tingling and numbness and possibly weakness and it’s been labeled as peripheral neuropathy. But you’re not sure the doctors are right and you’re not sure what to do about it. Join the club.  

Traditional Medicine seems to have no answers for this condition and more importantly, they don’t seem to care.  

The Johns Hopkins website suggests the following treatments for P.E.

  • Antidepressants
  • Hypnosis
  • Pain medications
  • Acupuncture
  • Anti-seizure medications

But that doesn’t really make sense. How could antidepressants, hypnosis, and anti-seizure medication all be appropriate treatment for the same medical condition? 

We think Dr. John Sarno was right when he said that these P.E. symptoms were all just the result of emotional stress and should be treated as such. Here’s a quote from his last book - The Divided Mind.

“The principle behind getting better is to understand what TMS is all about and to acknowledge that TMS, and nothing else, is the cause of your pain or numbness or tingling or weakness, regardless of where you are feeling these things. You will speed up the healing process if you forget everything that you were told in the past, including the diagnosis, as well as what you are supposed to do or not do. Your body is normal. Your symptoms are all due to mild oxygen deprivation which is harmless but can cause very severe symptoms. Where you have these symptoms is also not important.” Dr. John Sarno, MD 


So if you’re wondering whether all that tingling and numbness and pain are being caused by your emotions, the answer is most likely - YES.  

And your doctors are most likely wrong. But is that so hard to believe? Just review their results. The bottom line is:  

You’ve been sold a pack of lies.  

Maybe it’s time to try the mind-body connection. Maybe it’s time to be free from numb feet and legs.
