I have one of these ReBuilders and it works like a charm. My pain wasgone after one month and now I can play with my grandchildren. I tried everything but this really works and I think I paid about $400 for it.

Neuropathy is NOT caused by "lack of circulation". If your neuropathy is caused by diabetis--the first thing to do is to get your blood sugar under control. There are at least eight different causes for neuropathy, though--with different treatment options.
This person is a quack. Please check with your doctor before spending $400 on this machine.

When you go see your "doctor" please ask him or her if she /he is an MD or a DO, if they say "no they are a DC-chiropractor" or a "doctor of homeopathy" or "naturalpathology"- RUN AWAY- they should not be treated you for anything like a disease, do not buy their snake oil!
You need to be in an MD or your DO's office, maybe a DN or RN-or a PA- they are all good for disease and illnesses.
medicine?- never go to a chiropractor- what are you thinking? these people are not real doctors and do not have the training to treat a real medical condition. Their treatments- or the delay or prevention of, you getting proper treatments- could kill you.

Tammy- There is absolutly NOTHING a chiropractor can do for Rocky Mountan Spotted Fever. The "cold laser therapy" your chiroquack is offering you is a quack proceedure. It serves only to remedy the chiropractors ailing bank account.
This chiroquack should have refered you out , directly to an MD and he should have done that right away. Why didn't he? He does not benefit financially from a referal to a real medical doctor.
what possible good could a back or neck adjustment do for a condition caused by a infection like RMSF? NONE

Lawman- what is with the chirobashing? Tammy didn't say anything about a chiropractor. Stick on these topics, not your agenda.

You are WAY off lawman! I had Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Was diagnosed by a specialist. Thankfully the spirokeets (sp?) were up in the blood stream when she ordered the tests since they ebb and flow in the blood stream. She started me on what was to be a several year course of various antibiotics to rid my system of the RMSF. At that time my chiropractor started using cold laser therapy for many and various health issues. Via muscle testing he confirmed the RMSF diagnosis. Then via muscle testing he was able to find where the spirokeets were at that particular time (since they do not stay idle and in one place in the body) and used cold laser therapy on those places. Seven visits later I was free of RMSF. Be a skeptic if you choose but don't dare to TELL people modalities other than prescribing pills with side affects don't work. They do!

Right Sheila. Lawman is a total moron. And his writing is not quite up to the third grade level. He also seems to have serious anger/mental issues.
But hey, his type keeps shrinks in business.
My guess is he's unemployed, broke, and frustrated.

This is NOT a quack procedure. It is a new procedure and is being used in the hospital where I've been getting rehab following cancer treatment. Insurance companies pay for these machines, which suggests to me that there is real validity to the treatment. Furthermore I just had my first treatment with it, and I'm experiencing much better sensations (not pain, but what I'm supposed to feel with my feet) already. Please don't label good medicine as quack medicine without first checking it out.
