What is it? what can be done?
Metabolism is the chemical reactions that happen in living organisms to maintain life. These processes allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments.
Amyloidosis is a metabolic disorder, a defect of metabolism.
Amyloidosis is where a protein called amyloid is deposited in tissues and organs.
Amyloidosis disease can affect the spleen, lymph nodes, kidney & liver. Other organs can also be involved. This typically happens in connection with frequent communicable or inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis or osteomyelitis (bone infection). Treating the main disease is necessary to stop the amyloidosis.
Symptoms may be different from person to person but the common symptoms are bone lesions, irregular heartbeat, difficulty swallowing, swollen legs, and/or ankles, tingling in the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy) enlarged tongue, chronic arthritis, nerve damage (neuropathy), heart damage, weakness, shortness of breath, kidney damage, numbness (neuropathy), diarrhea, chronic fatigue, weight loss, abnormal hair loss, skin changes, and respiratory failure.
Neuropathy & Amyloid Deposits
These amyloid deposits can form on nerves throughout the body, leading to injury and nerve dysfunction.
Amyloidosis can affect peripheral sensory, motor or autonomic nerves and deposition of amyloid lead to degeneration and dysfunction in these nerves.

None of the various neuropathy treatments will build healthy nerves. You can cover up the symptoms and you can increase circulation and you can make a person feel less pain, etc., but if you build healthy nerves, there will not be any symptoms (healthy nerves don’t hurt, tingle, burn, are not numb, etc.) and the relief will be lasting.
Building Healthy Nerves*
Healthy sensory nerves mean that they are not painful. Healthy nerves mean that they communicate and don’t send wrong signals such as burning, hot and cold, tingling when there is no reason for it. Healthy motor nerves mean that they relay messages from the brain to the muscle so that they move correctly. Nerves need to be healthy to function properly.
The body needs specific nutrients (vitamins) to be able to build healthy nerves.
It may not give immediate relief (although many do feel changes in the first week) as the vitamins are working at a cellular level, but it does address the actual problem, builds healthy nerves and brings lasting relief.
(For temporary relief while building healthy nerves, go to Pain Relief Formula )
