what causes Burning And Numbness
Non Painful Diseases
Burning sensations in the skin let you know that nerves are
involved. Mercury is the most common offender. Mercury may
have started the trek of a host of other toxins as well into your
nervous system: pesticide, automotive chemicals, household
chemicals, fragrance and even food chemicals. Some people can
get a burning sensation after a car trip, some when exposed to
perfume, some when walking down the soap aisle in a grocery
store. When the affected nerves don't go to skin but instead go to
an organ like toes, you might feel a toe cramp or finger cramp
instead. Remove your mercury sources.
Burning skin is an ancient malady—maybe even the basis of
concepts like “hell.” St. Anthony's fire was caused by ergot
(food fungus) ingestion. Molds don't necessarily come singly.
Maybe other mold toxins can go to your nerves, too (see Moldy
Food, page 381). Maybe the mold toxins interfere with pantothenic
acid used by your body, because giving pantothenate
(500 mg three times a day) can sometimes relieve the condition
and, of course, this is good for your body.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) can cause burning, especially
of the face and lips. Sometimes swelling occurs too. MSG
is used as a flavor enhancer. It was found decades ago to be a
brain toxin and was taken out of baby food. But what about
adults? Especially those who already have a brain problem.
Throw it all out of your kitchen. Ask at restaurants which foods
Numbness has a similar cause. Numbness of fingers or feet
has become quite common since thallium and mercury toxicity
has spread so widely.
If you have burning and numbness, can multiple sclerosis
(MS) be far away? Remove all the metal in your dentalware
immediately, replacing with composite (see Dental Cleanup,
page 409). Hopefully, your immune system is still strong enough
to clear the bacteria growing around the metal and in pockets in
the jaw. Check and clean cavitations. Start your jaw healing with
the milk, magnesium, vitamin D diet. Use thioctic acid to help
clear your tissues of remaining metal (3 to 6 a day).
The most common nervous system bacterium is Shigella. Its
beginning can already be seen in cases of burning and numbness.
It is deeply entrenched in cases of MS. Three kinds of Shigella
are readily obtainable on slides: Shigella dysenteriae, Shigella
flexneri, Shigella sonnei. Shigella flex causes depression and
irritability. All can cause gas and bloating. Zapping doesn't kill
all of them because they inhabit the bowel. You must empty your
bowels frequently, two or three times a day. And do the Bowel
Program until all symptoms are gone. Be very careful not to put
contaminated dairy food in your mouth again. Boil all milk
products. They must be at boiling point for 10 seconds. This
includes cheese, cottage cheese, buttermilk and regular milk. Eat
only home made yogurt or home made buttermilk. Butter and
whipping cream need this treatment, too. Never use raw dairy
Nana Hughes, 48, had numbness of the whole right arm, hand and
right side of her head; it was particularly bad in the last four
months. She was toxic with PCBs, titanium and dysprosium (paint).
She was on thyroid, XantacTM (for stomach) and chlorazipate
medicines. We also found dog heartworm (she had chest pain
over the heart). She started on the parasite program, stopped
using nail polish, and stopped all detergents for dishes or laundry.
In three weeks her numbness was greatly reduced. She still had
titanium buildup from dental metal (a partial bridge). Seeing she was on the right track, she stopped use of MSG in her
food, switched from concocted beverages to milk and cut down on
her smoking. She brought her arm pretty near to normal.
Maria Santana, 45, had numbness in both arms; they would tingle and
“go to sleep” a lot. It was spreading to one leg. Her muscles were
toxic with thallium. It was in some very old pesticide, still effective
and still in use in the house. It was also in the well water, probably,
from pesticide seepage. She went off all commercial body
products, did a kidney cleanse and killed parasites. She had difficulty
getting rid of Prosthogonimus but in two months she had
everything cleaned up. Her legs, arms, sleep problem, urinary tract
problems were all gone and she could focus on her last problem,
Candy Donaldson, 44, had numbness from her shoulder to the wrist of
one arm, it started a year ago. She was toxic with iridium, lithium
and vanadium from a gas leak. She was advised to stop caffeine
use and switch to milk (her calcium level was low: 9.0 mg/DL) and
a magnesium tablet (300 mg daily). Her triglycerides were high,
implying a kidney problem. She had urate and phosphate crystals
in her kidney. She decreased the phosphate in her diet (meat,
nuts, grains, soda pop) and started the kidney cleanse. When the
gas leak was fixed, both her lithium and vanadium toxicity disappeared.
In six weeks she had also killed parasites and her periods
became regular for the first time. An ovarian cyst had disappeared,
too, as checked by ultrasound. Soon her PMS was gone,
including hot flushes. After four months she had done three liver
cleanses and suddenly her numbness improved. After a few more
there was no numbness at all.
If cleaning cavitations brings you immediate improvement
you know that these bacteria were part of the problem. Have
them checked again if problems return; dental bacteria are notorious
for returning. If kidney cleansing makes it worse for a day
and then better, you know kidney bacteria are partly responsible.
If liver cleanses (page 552) make matters worse for a day and
then better, you know bacteria are entrenched in the liver.
Continue cleansing until none of these sources exist any longer.
Kill all bacteria at least once a week electronically. Burning and
numbness can be cured, not just arrested. In other words, your
nerves can be cleaned up and healed.
