A Letter From Don Kennedy, DO
Hey there. This is Dr. Don Kennedy, I’m the Chief Medical Advisor here at LifeRenew. And if you need help getting back to days and nights without that “fire in your feet”, pins and needles, or weakness and balance issues that make it so difficult to do what makes you happy, then you’ve come to the right place.
In the early years of my over 35 years of geriatric practice I told patients with neuropathy that there was little that could be done to stop the process and symptoms of neuropathy. Like most doctors, I followed the guidelines and prescribed medications that blocked the pain and symptoms believing, as I was taught, that nerves do not heal.
I was wrong.
I don’t make that statement lightly. But to admit that meant I had to take a path away from mainstream medicine and learn and believe something different.
So, I took the Mayo Clinic courses and trained in regenerative medicine, became a member of the American Academy of Regenerative Medicine, went to seminars to learn from cutting edge researchers, and joined the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy.
Believe me, I know neuropathy and I know you.
I heard you say, “My feet are burning up, Doc, I haven’t slept in a week.”
I saw the fatigue and frustration and understood that the “electric” pins and needles made it impossible for you sit on the couch and relax for even ten minutes.
I watched you shuffle into the office, off balance, sometimes with a walker or in a wheelchair all because your muscle weakness had worsened.
And while this disease can make you feel depressed, frustrated, and hopeless, you need to know and learn what it took me years of training and practice to discover:
You CAN fix the "fire" in your feet. Nerves Heal.
The research from Harvard, the Mayo Clinic, and John Hopkins prove that people CAN and DO regenerate their damaged nerves. But like me, you have to move away from the belief that the answer to attacking neuropathy lies in another prescription.
If you truly want to heal your nerves and get on with life, then give your body the nutrition and activity it needs to heal itself.
That’s the basis for and definition of regenerative medicine: Focusing on therapies and natural products that regenerate and heal the damaged nerves in your hands and feet so they regain their normal function.
There is no pain, tingling, or weakness when your nerves are firing normally.
So how do you do that? Well, that’s what this blog is all about.
I want to give you simple, easy steps you can take to start improving your nerves. I promise, you’ll feel better . . . you’ll live better. . . and you’ll be happier.
Just think about all the things you’d do if you DIDN’T have these problems in your feet, hands, and muscles.
Would you be taking trips?
Playing tag with your grandkids?
Volunteering at your church?
THAT is why this is all so important. Because I know if you work with myself and the LifeRenew team, you’ll be on your feet… and back to the lifestyle you planned.
I know that’s a big promise. But it’s time you took a new path.
And considering the wonderful results from tens of thousands of people using LifeRenew products, I’d say you’re in good hands (and if you want to read their stories you can do that here).
With that said, I want to welcome you to LifeRenew. And as I tell my patients, it’s time to begin again. If you do, I know you’ll feel terrific and love waking every single day.
