Peripheral neuropathy is the feeling of numbness or tingling on one’s feet or toes. This condition often happens because we don’t have adequate nutrition and do not eat the right things. Sometimes it is may be caused by consuming too much alcohol. Another short term feeling of numbness is fringe neuropathy or what some people sometimes call paresthesia. This include symptoms such as numbness, burning aches, tingling, pain, and chronic paresthesia. We will take a look at some of the posible nutritional deficiencies that may cause these symptoms of peripheral neuropathy or even paresthesia. The first deficiency is not having enough magnesium. Because magnesium is the foundation of about 300 responses in the human body, it is considered the fourth most important mineral that exists in the human body. Therefore, when one has a deficiency of magnesium, there is a noticeable reduction in the function of the nerves and this can result in tingling and numbness. A good way to treat this condition is to eat a lot of vegetables that contain magnesium such as pumpkin seeds and spinach. Also, one can make do with magnesium supplements but make sure they are of high quality. Other deficiencies that cause tingling and numbness are discussed in the original article linked to below.
