Toxins and Neuropathy
Buildup of toxic substances in the body can result in neuropathies. Prolonged exposure to industrial chemicals, solvents, mercury, arsenic and lead can eventually cause nerve damage. Agent Orange has also been found to cause neuropathy. Certain prescription drugs may be the culprits of toxic buildup in the body, in particular drugs used during radiation and chemotherapy. However, if the responsible toxin can be identified and cleansed, the neuropathy is likely to improve or even disappear.
