WEBINAR - Managing Polyneuropathy with NeuRemedy®
Polyneuropathy is the most common form of peripheral neuropathy. It affects over thirty million Americans, three million Canadians and its incidence is growing rapidly. Polyneuropathy is the most common and often the first complication of diabetes. Until recently, the mainstay of treatment for polyneuropathy was the use of anticonvulsants and/or antidepressants, drugs that sedate and suppress nervous system function. Today, many doctors have discovered that they can successfully manage their patients’ symptoms nutritionally with NeuRemedy®, the polyneuropathy vitamin. NeuRemedy® is a safe and effective high potency form of vitamin B1. NeuRemedy® was recently licensed by Health Canada for people suffering from polyneuropathy. NeuRemedy® can be dispensed from your office to your patients suffering from polyneuropathy.
