Neuropathy is a painful condition which occurs when nerve damage takes place in certain areas of the body. And while the disease can affect one or more areas, it is often situated in the feet. While many of the causes of neuropathy are now known, there are very few treatments out there that can offer much relief, at least without further side effects of their own.
With the different variants of neuropathy that affect millions of Americans, CBD oil is now being considered as a potential treatment for the disease because of its safety profile and its therapeutic, pain-relieving potential.
Nerve damage can be caused by a variety of factors, and it almost always comes as a result of another underlying condition. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes; in fact, up to 70% of diabetes sufferers have some sort of nerve damage! This is due to high blood sugar levels which over time damage the cells in the body, leading to diabetic polyneuropathy.
CBD is a powerful that some studies have shown to be more effective than pharmaceutical drugs, with none of the side effects or addictive qualities!
There are several treatment options for neuropathy available, many offer little relief to those who are suffering, and they can sometimes make matters worse in terms of their negative side effects. It is for these reasons that CBD oil should be considered for neuropathy in feet as a possible way forward in the treatment of this condition.
