Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

"The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes" 
(Institute for Functional Medicine)

Cleveland, Ohio Neuropathy Treatment
Over the past 25 years, we've had the privilege of helping hundreds of patients all across Northeast Ohio with their peripheral neuropathy. 

The KEY is to DIG for the root cause! In our clinic we have a saying... "We Don't Guess...We TEST!"

We look at FOODS! We look at NUTRIENTS! We look at TOXICITIES! We don't have a one size fits all cookie cutter approach. 

This is what separates us from other clinics out there. Most will simply throw a medication at the symptoms. We come at things from a NATURAL approach! 

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a disease that can damage nerves in the feet and prevent them from working properly. It is commonly caused by diabetes or injury. 

Some causes include arthritis, vitamin deficiencies (which is why we test), blood vessel disease, and certain infections. Damaged nerves may cause changes in sensation, including numbness. This can make you more likely to injure your feet without knowing it. 

Over time, neuropathy can lead to permanent loss of nerve function, as well as bone and joint damage.
What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?
  • ​Diabetes
  •  Glucose Intolerance
  •  Vitamin Deficiencies or Toxicity (this is why we TEST)
  •  Surgeries
  •  Celiac Disease
  •  Alcohol Abuse
  •  Immune System Dysfunction
  •  Vasculitis
  •  Bacterial Infections
  •  Virus Infections
  • ​Lyme disease
  •  Cancer
  •  Chemotherapy & Radiation Treatments
  •  Thyroid Disease
  •  Hereditary / Genetic Disorders
  •  Toxins
  •  Chemicals
  •  Drug Abuse
  •  Trauma / Compression To The Nerves of the Upper or Lower Body
  •  Idiopathic Neuropathy (unknown causes)
These Are The Most Common Symptoms Of Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Numbness In Legs & Feet
  • Burning Sensation In Legs
  •  Itchy legs
  • Sleeping Problems Due To Burning Legs
  • Pain, Numbness, or Tingling In The Affected area
  • Tingling Hands, Fingers, or Feet - “pins and needles”
  • Blisters or Calluses
  •  Slow Reflexes
  •  Muscle Weakness or Poor Balance
  •  Coordination Problems
  •  Difficulties With Walking
  •  Sensitivity to Pain
How We Are Different?
As mentioned above, we're going to dig to find the root cause. Each patient is unique and we need to explore to find the root cause. 

We may look at food sensitivities / intolerances to reduce inflammation. 

We may check for vitamin / nutrient deficiencies. 
We may look at thyroid function (TSH, T3, T4, TPO etc.). 

We may need advanced imaging such as X-ray / MRI. 

Again, once we determine the ROOT CAUSE of the peripheral neuropathy...THEN we can determine the best NATURAL plan of attack moving forward. 
You Have Questions...We Have Answers!
Q: What Can I Expect On The First Visit?
A: During your initial visit with Dr. Duffy or Dr. Johnson there will be a detailed history taken along with a consultation. From there we will determine if you're a case we can accept or not. Sometimes a referral is needed to another healthcare practitioner. From there we will recommend an exam & potentially further testing. If we feel we can help you, we will tell you. If we don't feel as though we can help you we will find an appropriate provider who can. 
Q: Does Insurance Pay For Treatment?
A: We will definitely check your benefits to determine if they can help. Generally speaking, most insurance does not pay for functional medicine type services. They will pay for your drugs and medications but won't pay to dig, find, & fix the root cause of the neuropathy. 
Q: Will I Have To Keep Coming Back?
A: Dr. Duffy and Dr. Johnson will determine that early on in your case. He may put you on a protocol consisting of supplementation / dietary changes which may not need a lot of follow up visits. Other times, if the peripheral neuropathy is more mechanical in nature, it may require more frequent visits. 
Q: Will I Have To Swallow A Lot Of Pills?
A: There may be a few products to take but it won't be overwhelming / confusing.
Q: Is Your Program Safe?
A: Absolutely. Our programs are safe and natural.
