Neuropathy affects around 20 million people in the United States alone.
How many of these people do you think actually manage their neuropathy with the perfect lifestyle?
I’m sure the number is pretty low! People aren’t perfect and there are always bumps in the road in anyone’s life.
This article was written to solve the problem of many neuropathy sufferers: a dedicated checklist to follow to ensure you live your best life.
#1: Take Nerve Renew on a daily basis
The development of Nerve Renew has always been centered around providing our customers with high-quality and premium ingredients.
The vitamins in Nerve Renew have been proven to be absorbed more quickly than other dietary supplements — with this, Nerve Renew has given some of our customers results in less than a week.
However, it goes without saying that results may vary. Each neuropathy sufferer has a different severity in symptoms and pain level; each individual manages their symptoms quite differently as well.
These factors can, and often do, greatly affect Nerve Renew’s active ingredient time. Our team of dedicated researchers has discovered that 80% of our customers notice results after taking Nerve Renew for only 4 months.

#2: Take Nerve Renew at certain times with other medications
Neuropathy sufferers often present with other ailments or diseases that either caused their neuropathy or are a result of their neuropathy diagnosis.
It is extremely common to have multiple medications involved and there is always a nervous feeling when mixing too many medications and supplements together.
The active ingredients in Nerve Renew (Methylcobalamin, Benfotiamine, and Stabilized R-Alpha Lipoic Acid) have been proven to work well with other medications when taken 30 minutes before or after medications and other supplements.
There aren’t enough research studies in the world that know you better than your doctor. Please consult a healthcare professional prior to taking Nerve Renew or any other product.
#3: Eat more of these foods
Fueling your body with the right kinds of food is vital to your symptom management and overall pain level. That is just what food is: fuel. You wouldn’t want to fill up your car with low-quality gasoline at the pump, so fuel your body with foods that help you.
Examples of foods that will benefit you include:
- vitamin B rich foods (salmon, fortified cereals, lentils, green peas, chicken, etc)
- omega-3 fatty acids
#4: Avoid these foods
The modern world is slowly being negatively affected by today’s diet. When you drive down the road, you can see a fast food restaurant after another fast food restaurant — for miles, sometimes!
We are constantly bombarded by fast food marketing, signs, and commercials. It’s no wonder the CDC’s studies show that 39.8% of the American population is considered obese.
If you suffer from neuropathy, you’ll definitely want to steer clear of the following:
- fast food
- processed foods in general
- salty snacks
- refined grains
- saturated fats
The reason you should steer away from these “foods” is actually two-fold. Firstly, as a generalized consensus, they’re just bad for your body. They often lack proper nutritional value to give your body what it needs as opposed to what you want. Weight gain, diabetes (if your neuropathy is not diabetically induced), high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and other diseases are quite common in those who consume these foods over healthy foods.
Secondly, those eating these foods are damaging their nerves more than they know. Sugar-laden sweets are detrimental to proper neuropathy maintenance as they further damage the myelin sheath surrounding your nerves.
This is just a generalized list and there are many more factors to take into consideration. To read more about foods to avoid and why, click the link below.

#5: Exercise and stretch
One of the more controversial topics is that of exercise.
“How do we encourage our followers and our customers to exercise if they are in pain?”, is a question we commonly ask ourselves.
The answer to that question is often shadowed by the results of what happens when you don’t work out. Things start to fail in your body, you aren’t as engaged, you lack focus, you gain unwanted weight, and many other negative factors begin to show when you don’t exercise regularly.
To combat this, you’ll want to get yourself on a low-impact exercise regimen that keeps you active without causing too much pain. Common exercises include:
- yoga/tai chi
- light weight-lifting
- climbing stairs
- parking further from the store
- swimming/water aerobics

#6: Check your feet daily
One of the more commonly ignored maintenance routines (but most certainly one of the most painful symptoms) is foot care management.
Your feet are what take you from point A to point B at any given point in the day, so it is imperative that you keep them healthy, clean, and strong.
You will want to check your feet daily as your feet can become numb and you can easily miss out on important injuries that need to be taken care of.
I recently read a study from Douglas Albreski, DPM, assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Connecticut Foot Center. In his study regarding he says, “The big thing is inspection. Finding these problems early can prevent amputation.”
Here is a scary fact from a study from NCBI:
“About 50% of patients with diabetic foot infections who have foot amputations die within five years. Properly managed most can be cured, but many patients needlessly undergo amputations because of improper diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.”
One final note is to exercise your feet. The tendons, ligaments, and small muscles in your feet will grow stiff and weak if they’re not utilized as they should be. Follow the links below to read more extensively on each topic.

#7: Learn everything you can about neuropathy
It goes without saying that the more in-tune you are with the ins and outs of neuropathy the better you off you will be. It is important to learn everything you can about the nervous system, how neuropathy causes pain, and how neuropathy affects you specifically so you can make more educated symptoms when treating yourself at home.
For example, if you’re experiencing new symptoms, how do you know if it is directly or indirectly caused by neuropathy? How are you going to deal with this system if you are already on so many medications?
Below are two fantastic articles that may help you learn more about the disease.

#8: Maintain your blood sugar
Your blood-sugar level is responsible for the pliability and elasticity of the myelin sheath that surrounds your nerves.
The degeneration of this sheath is responsible for the tingling, sharp, and painful sensations you have in your extremities and other areas of your body.
The number 1 way to make your neuropathy worse is to have chronic high blood-sugar — not to mention the other terrible things that come along with high blood-sugar:
- increased thirst
- trouble concentrating
- frequent urination
- blurred vision
- slow-healing cuts and sores (which is why you need to check your feet daily)
- chronic constipation
- damage to eyes and kidneys
Blood-sugar maintenance plays a key role in determining the severity of the symptoms you experience, so prioritize it daily.

#9: Maintain all aspects of your health
The healthier you are in life, the fewer symptoms you’ll experience; it’s just the truth.
If you keep up on an exercise regimen, a healthy diet, a healthy stress level, and a healthy lifestyle in general, you are more likely to experience regular life again.
There are many things you can do to make yourself healthier, but as I always like to say, it’s all about “brilliance in the basics”:
- healthy friendships
- healthy lifestyle
- managing stress
- take your vitamins and supplements
On top of these tactics, you’ll want to read the articles below to a step by step guide on living better.

#10: Stay hydrated
Lastly, but certainly just as important as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, drinking water should be a proactive step you take daily. Up to 60% (!) of your body is water.
Think about replacing 10-15% of that water with energy drinks, soda, and other liquids. When described like this, most would say it’s a bad idea to consume so many calorically-dense beverages.
Yet, some actively intake energy drinks and soda in place of water for the short-lived burst of energy given to them by manufactured chemicals.
The point is this: you need to stay hydrated with water and consume less of the sweet and dangerous drinks we all like. You don’t have to completely omit them from your diet, but you’ll absolutely want to limit yourself.
As time goes on, we all hope for the advancement of technology to solve our neuropathy-related problems. In 2018, our technology is incredible and often mind-blowing — but, we still aren’t ready to fix neuropathy under the knife or with a magic pill.
We need to follow guidelines like this to ensure we live our best lives, even though many of us suffer from extreme pain.
As always, please contact your doctor prior to making any major lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.
