How it happens, what
can be done
Hypoxia is a condition in which
tissues are deprived of an adequate supply of
oxygen. It is the failure of oxygen to
gain access to, or to be utilized by the
body. The term anoxia is commonly used but
the more precise term is hypoxia as there is rarely a
complete oxygen deprivation.
Hypoxia is shortage of
oxygen, while anoxia is the absence of oxygen.
For some reason the tissues are
deprived of oxygen. This can happen in different
are different types of hypoxia.
- low blood oxygen count as in altitude sickness, low
blood transport, anemia, low blood oxygen carrying
capacity (i.e. carbon monoxide poisoning)
- low blood flow such as in shock or atherosclerosis
- poisoning (i.e.- cyanide) or anything that keeps
cells from using oxygen.
reversed quickly, hypoxia can lead to necrosis (tissue
death) as in heart attack or nerve damage.
brain cannot be deprived of the necessary oxygen for
more than a few minutes. Nerve cell degeneration
begins quickly, and damage to the respiratory centers
prevents resumption of breathing.
An inadequate supply of oxygen can
result in nerve damage. There are many
ways in which this can occur.

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 means 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 )
