Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes for peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where you experience tingling, numbness or burning- type pain in the bottoms of your feet or in your fingertips. This sensation starts from the fingers and toes and can extend further.

Symptoms (in the bottom of your feet or your fingertips):

  • Tingling

  • Numbness

  • Burning pain

  • Circulation problem

Cause #1: Diabetes and too much sugar

If you are diabetic, which is caused by a high-carb diet, it can clog up and starve the tiny blood vessels that are connected to your nerves. These blood vessels are very vital for your nerve channels to function properly. Once your nerve ends don’t receive needed nutrients anymore (from these little blood vessels), they stop functioning-- causing peripheral neuropathy symptoms.


  • For immediate relief consume the following:

    • benfotiamine (vitamin B1)

    • alpha-lipoic acid

    • tocotrienols (vitamin E)

    • nerve support formula supplement

  • Reverse the peripheral neuropathy by:

    • avoiding snacking

    • avoiding carbs and sweets

    • doing the Healthy Keto® diet

  • doing an intermittent fasting plan

  • Avoid foods with omega-6 oils:

  • corn oil

  • soy oil

  • certain soups

  • certain breads

Cause #2: Vitamin B1 and B12 deficiency

Vitamin B1 and B12 are very important for the healthy function of your nerves and nervous system in general. If you are deficient in them, this can cause short-circuiting of the electric flow in the nerves. This, in combination with diabetes, can cause peripheral neuropathy.

Remedies (in addition to the remedies from cause #1):

  • Consume nutritional yeast (B vitamins)

  • Consume benfotiamine (fat-soluble vitamin B1)

  • You can get fat-soluble vitamin B12

  • You can also get a nerve support formula supplement

  • Avoid refined carbs and sugar (they deplete B vitamins)

Other causes:

  • Chemotherapy
