Peripheral Neuropathy


Peripheral neuropathy can significantly impact daily life, with symptoms ranging from tingling and numbness to sharp pain in the extremities. Many individuals seek the best treatment strategies to manage their symptoms and improve overall nerve health. In this article, we’ll explore four natural treatment options for peripheral neuropathy: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), Neurofeedback, the ReBuilder® System, and Laser Therapy.

  1. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT):

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. This treatment enhances oxygen delivery to tissues, promoting healing and reducing inflammation.

    • How it Works:

      • Increased oxygen levels stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.
      • Improved circulation aids in reducing neuropathic pain.
      • Anti-inflammatory effects may alleviate symptoms.
    • Considerations:

      • HBOT sessions typically last 60-90 minutes and may require multiple sessions.
  2. Neurofeedback:

    Neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, is a non-invasive technique that trains the brain to regulate its own activity. It aims to promote healthy brain function, which may benefit individuals with peripheral neuropathy.

    • How it Works:

      • Sensors measure brainwave activity.
      • Real-time feedback helps individuals learn to self-regulate brain function.
      • Improved brain function may positively impact nerve health.
    • Considerations:

      • Multiple sessions may be required for noticeable effects.
  3. ReBuilder® System:

    The ReBuilder® System is an FDA-approved medical device designed to manage and alleviate symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. It uses electrical stimulation to improve nerve function and reduce pain.

    • How it Works:

      • Electrical signals stimulate nerve pathways.
      • Aims to restore nerve function and improve circulation.
      • Non-invasive and can be used at home.
    • Considerations:

      • Consultation with a healthcare professional is advised before use.
      • Consistent use may be necessary for optimal results.
  4. Laser Therapy:

    Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), utilizes light energy to stimulate tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation.

    • How it Works:

      • Laser energy penetrates tissues, promoting cellular regeneration.
      • Reduces inflammation and stimulates blood flow.
      • May alleviate neuropathic pain and improve nerve function.
    • Considerations:

      • Laser therapy sessions are typically short and painless.


Natural treatments like Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Neurofeedback, the ReBuilder® System, and Laser Therapy offer promising options for managing peripheral neuropathy symptoms. While these approaches show potential benefits, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most suitable treatment plan for your specific condition. By incorporating natural treatments into your care routine, you can take proactive steps towards improving nerve health and enhancing overall well-being, naturally.
