Traditional Chinese medicine
teaches that neuropathy is due to dampness moving to the limbs,
and obstructing the flow of Qi (energy) and Blood within them.
The treatment is treat the underlying factor that is causing this
dampness to accumulate and to directly facilitate the circulation
of Qi in the affected area. When the circulation has improved,
the nerve tissues of the affected area can be nourished to repair
the nerve functions and reduce pain.
