When I was 10 years old, my mother took me to the county fair. I was excited about getting to see all the animals, ride the rides, eat cotton candy, watch the fireworks and listen to one of my favorite musicians, but the one thing at the fair that enchanted me and stole my attention was the group of swing dancers that performed that day.
I loved everything about how they moved, the way they smiled as they danced, and just how fun it looked to swing dance. I knew right then that I would spend the rest of my life swing dancing. Unfortunately, my Type 1 diabetes had other ideas. Later that year, I began experiencing numb feet, tingling feet, and pain that would shoot from my toes all the way up to my calf. My doctor diagnosed me with diabetic neuropathy, which is a lot like peripheral neuropathy only the nerve damage is initially caused by diabetes.
My love for swing dancing never subsided despite the pain in my feet. My doctor recommended I use some form of foot neuropathy treatment so that I could pursue swing dancing despite the pain. I looked into neuropathy cream for the pain relief, and I found that the neuropathy cream contained Capsaicin, the stuff in hot peppers. I used neuropathy creams regularly, but the pain relief was temporary, so I needed to look into longer lasting foot neuropathy treatments in order to dance like I wanted.
I spent the next 6 years fighting this degenerative disease that was slowly making its way up my leg. My love and passion for swing dancing was only growing, but my ability to perform was decreasing. I knew I had to find a foot neuropathy treatment that would work for my diabetic neuropathy so I could dance without the pain.
Finally, after several appointments with a specialist, I was referred to a neuropathy support formula. It was amazing! With a precise blend of vital nutrients for my nerves, I finally found relief! I can truly say that this was the form of foot neuropathy treatment that I had been waiting my whole life for!
Now, I make sure to take my neuropathy supplements every day and when it’s time to start dancing, I am always ready to go. Finding the right treatment for my neuropathy put the swing back into my swing dancing.
