Does anyone know if an extended water-only fast can help cure peripheral neuropathy? I am age 70, today at Day 17 hoping to improve or even cure a condition that has lasted continuously for the past five years. The symptoms are a mild but sometimes burning sensation in the hands and feet. Wearing socks feels irritating to the feet but a small computer fan blowing across them at night feels pleasant. My diet has been oil-free vegan for two years (which has successfully reversed my coronary artery disease). Over time I have gotten more or less used to the tingling or burning but would like to cure it if possible.
