I get letters (bold and links added by Dr. Z)

Dear Dr. Z,

My eighty-six year old uncle has had neuropathy for about ten years. When his family doctor sent him to a neurologist to see what could be done, he was given foot braces to hold up his "lazy feet" and told there wasn't much else anyone could do. At the time he received his braces he had no feeling from his feet up to just above the knee.

Last Thanksgiving I realized he was getting much worse, walking with canes and hardly able to keep his balance. About six months ago I discovered the Dr. Z website and did the Self Evaluation for him.

I ordered both the Pleo Muc Capsules and the Pleo Muc Ointment for him and as of today, about six months later, he walks without a cane, keeps his balance, he holds one foot up completely without support and the other has just a small bit of "play" in it.

He is so excited at the speed and the degree with which he is improving. He even took a pin to his feet and he could feel it! I hope everyone with this ailment finds you, we both have told anyone who will listen to us.

We now believe he will recover completely, and he has promised to take me to the New Years Ball.

Thank you for bringing hope and mobility to a wonderful uncle.

What is Neuropathy

Here is a definition of neuropathy from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

"An estimated 20 million people in the United States have some form of peripheral neuropathy, a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system — the vast communications network that transmits information between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and every other part of the body. (Neuropathy means nerve disease or damage.)

Symptoms can range from numbness or tingling, to pricking sensations (paresthesia), or muscle weakness. Areas of the body may become abnormally sensitive leading to an exaggeratedly intense or distorted experience of touch (allodynia). In such cases, pain may occur in response to a stimulus that does not normally provoke pain.

Severe symptoms may include burning pain (especially at night), muscle wasting, paralysis, or organ or gland dysfunction.

Damage to nerves that supply internal organs may impair digestion, sweating, sexual function, and urination. In the most extreme cases, breathing may become difficult, or organ failure may occur"


Peripheral neuropathy is obviously a terrible condition. Most people think of neuropathy in terms of burning pains and tingling and numbness in arms and legs.

From the above definition you can see that vital organ function can be affected as well, such as

  • digestion
  • sexual function
  • blood pressure
  • heart rate
  • breathing

Not a good thing!

What causes Neuropathy?

Your brain cells, and your peripheral nerves, are working very hard. They consume a lot of energy in order to function properly. This energy is called ATP.

How do they get this energy? Well, inside the cells there are tiny energy factories called mitochondria. These energy factories/mitochondria make ATP from

  • oxygen and
  • "balanced" blood sugar/glucose

with the help of coenzyme Q10.


  • Without sufficient oxygen, your brain cells and nerves cannot work properly.
  • With blood sugar imbalance such as in high blood sugar/diabetes or with low blood sugar/hypoglycemia, your brain cells and nerves cannot work properly.

Peripheral/Diabetic Neuropathy occurs most frequently in people over age 40 who

  • smoke and/or who have diabetes.

*** Smoking pollutes the air you're breathing. Smoking damages the lining of your lungs and leads to chronic lung inflammation - just listen to the coughing and labored breathing of a smoker. Smoking interferes with oxygen transfer in the lungs. Less oxygen enters the bloodstream. This leads to in adequate oxygen supply to the brain cells and the nerves. They cannot make sufficient ATP. They start to malfunction, degenerate and may die. Peripheral neuropathy is an obvious possible consequence.

***Episodes of low blood sugar/hypoglycemia are dangerous because without a balanced supply of blood sugar/glucose your brain cells and your nerves are unable to produce adequate cell energy/ATP. They cannot work properly. Any imaginable brain and nervous system symptom is possible. Peripheral neuropathy is an obvious possible consequence.

***Diabetes/High Blood Sugar is toxic to brain and nerve cells. Brain cells and nerves become sick and cannot function properly. Peripheral neuropathy is an obvious possible consequence.

Brain cells and nerves have a high metabolism, meaning they require lots of energy for them to work well. Consequently, nerves are extremely sensitive to decreased oxygen levels and unbalanced blood sugar. Nerve dysfunction, nerve degeneration and possibly nerve death may follow. Sensory loss, numbness and/or tingling in the affected areas and poor wound healing are warning signs.

For those affected by peripheral neuropathy, it is imperative to stop smoking and pay close attention to one's diet.

Dr. Z's Neuropathy Relief

European health care practioners report that the German homeopathic/isopathic remedy

1. Mucokehl/Pleo-Muc ointment
in combination with

2. Mucokehl/Pleo-Muc capsules

has proven extremely useful as supportive therapy to alleviate the symptomatic effects of peripheral/diabetic neuropathy by increasing local microcirculation and thus increasing oxygen perfusion.

3. Co-Q10 is the enzyme reqired to make cell energy (ATP) from blood sugar/glucose and oxygen. As we age, cellular levels of Co-Q10 tend to decrease. Co-Q10 is an important factor.

Q-Best 50 by Thorne Research is by far the most absorbable form of CoQ10.
