Peripheral Neuropathy Breakthrough!
“My feet feel like they’re on fire.” “Each step feels like I’m walking through wet paint.”
“I live in constant fear that I’ll fall.”
“I can’t sleep, my hands and feet tingle all night.”
What do all of these people have in common? They suffer from peripheral neuropathy. It’s estimated that thousands of people in Canada have peripheral neuropathy.
Dr. Melanie Morrill Ac. of Accessible Acupuncture in Edmonton, AB suspects there are even more. “I’ve been treating neuropathy, in all its various forms, for over five years and so often my patients come to me because of the symptoms, not because of a diagnosis. They read the testimonial of another patient and say to themselves ‘hey, I feel the same thing’.”
Shirley of Downtown Edmonton testified to this. “I remember my husband driving me to my consultation and I saw a woman running just outside our neighbourhood. I was so envious – I just kept thinking ‘I would give anything just to walk again’. My primary care doctor told me my troubles with pain and balance were just symptoms of old age. I was so depressed.”
Fortunately, Shirley would eventually see Dr. Melanie Morrill Ac. on the local news talking about similar symptoms and how she offers a real solution at Accessible Acupuncture. “I just knew I had to see her. She was my last hope.”
“Almost all of our patients come to us with a story similar to Shirley’s. They’ve been everywhere else. They’ve been told there’s no hope. They’ve been told ‘it’s just part of getting older.” shares Kelly, a Patient Care Coordinator at Accessible Acupuncture. “It just breaks my heart but I know how much we can help people like Shirley so I’m always so happy when they walk through our door.”
Those diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy often face a very grim reality; Western medicine declares that there is no solution while most alternative therapies carry large price tags and offer little to no resolve. Which is why Dr. Melanie Morrill Ac. and the staff at Accessible Acupuncture pride themselves on being ‘the last resort with the best results”.
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves and this damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow in the hands and feet.
A lack of blood flow results in a lack of nutrients; the nerves then begin to degenerate and die which causes pain ranging from discomfort to debilitating. Because neuropathy is a degenerative condition, once those nerves begin to deteriorate they will continue to do so until they are completely expired, leaving those suffering with crippling balance issues. “In this case, the absence of pain is not necessarily a good thing.” shares Dr. Melanie Morrill Ac. “This usually indicates that your nerves are hanging on by a fragile thread.”
How exactly is Dr. Melanie Morrill Ac. able to reverse the effects of this degenerative disease? “Acupuncture has been used to increase blood flow for thousands of years which helps to get the necessary nutrients to the affected nerves. But the real magic happens when I integrate ATP Resonance BioTherapy. This is a technology that was originally developed by NASA to expedite recovering and healing.”
“I just can’t say enough about Accessible Acupuncture,” Shirley shared through tears of joy. “My husband and I moved here 3 years ago and he’s gone to the river valley almost every day to walk. I always stayed home because of the pain and discomfort. Yesterday I walked beside the river with him! And next week we’re starting square dancing again! I am truly living life these days.”
“According to Shirley’s test results, she has seen a 74% improvement in pain and functionality, which is on par with a majority of our patients,” Shares Kelly.
“But more important than those test results is the joy she’s expressed being here and hearing about all the amazing things she’s able to do because she feels great!”
By seamlessly blending the ancient science of acupuncture with modern medical solutions Dr. Melanie Morrill Ac. has achieved a 90% success rate in reversing the effects of neuropathy. She starts each patient with an initial consultation during which a sensory exam is performed.
“This not only aids in making a proper diagnosis but it helps to define just how much nerve damage has occurred,” tells the Doctor of Acupuncture. “This is important because if a patient has suffered more than 95% damage, there is little that I can do to help them. I’m familiar with the medical miracle but I know my limits as a practitioner and the limits of my medicine.”
When it comes to treating peripheral neuropathy, regardless of its origin, early detection greatly improves your chances of a full recovery.
If you or someone you love are suffering from chronic pain that presents as burning, tingling or ‘pins and needles’ or you’ve recently been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, it’s important to know that there are options.
There is hope!
