I’m going to share something with you that, perhaps, no one has ever shared with you before: not your doctor, not your health insurance company, not the media… You were made to be healthy. Healthy used to be normal; sick is the new normal. People you know, like, and trust are selling you a bad message — that message is that there is no hope, that “your condition is fully determined by bad genes, bad germs, or bad luck.

Hi I’m Dr. Jay Hobbs, a wellness expert, for Hope and Health.  I am certified in Functional Medicine, which is finding the bio-nutritional causes and solutions that cause the body to breakdown and lead to disease. I am also board certified in Chiropractic Neurology, which is a sub-specialty that focuses on natural approaches for the prevention and recovery from nerve and brain dysfunction that leads to nerve breakdown and disease.  There only 488 of us in the world with this level of certification, as of 2021.

I hope to give you hope that leads to health, but first, we need to get a closer look at how we ended up here.  And I do believe you are here for a reason.

The TV and radio we watch are FILLED with ads from pharmaceutical giants telling us how the solution to our problems is the new, fancy DRUG they have developed. 

Swallowing that message, hook, line, and sinker, is laying a path to your dysfunction and disease.  I will show you that there is another way.

The information I will be sharing with you will change your life. You will never look at your Health the same way, your body the same way … even your LIFE, the same way again. 

I’m not sharing this to entertain you; I am sharing this to REVOLUTIONIZE you. And if I revolutionize you, if you pay attention, you will be changed so profoundly that you will want to share it with others. I’m going to mobilize you.

My drive to help people recover from, and even prevent, degenerative nerve conditions comes from a deep place in me and my past. I used to visit my grandfather 1-3 times per year when we lived in another state. When I was 9 years old, I hadn’t seen him for many months.

When I had last seen him, he was his pleasant, familiar self, open arms, and all smiles. Those who had good relationships with their grandparents know; it was just that familiar, comfortable, “grandad” feeling.

I had heard that he wasn’t doing well and was in a nursing home. We traveled across several states to visit he and my grandmother. When I was 9, I had never been in a nursing home – what we now call retirement homes.  I walked in … I’m sure I was told what to expect, but I did NOT expect this. I said, “Hi Grandad!” as I saw his familiar face and pleasant smile. … But, that just created an even more shocking moment when he didn’t know who I was. He was pleasant about it, but I was crushed.

I left the room crying and never saw him again until I saw him in his casket a year or so later.

So, yes, I have a PASSION for the prevention of dementia, but that is just one of many disorders that are a result of neurodegeneration. 

I ALSO, PERSONALLY, developed peripheral neuropathy, noticing numbness in my feet.  I knew if the disease process continued in me, the consequences could be much worse than numbness – it could result in poor healing, infections, and even amputations, as well as being a warning sign of what may have been happening in my BRAIN cells.

My passion, my drive to know the most and to be the best I can comes from a desire to help others – and to help myself. As I have found solutions for myself and my patients, I am compelled to share them, and to always improve on them.

Neurodegeneration and neuro-REGENERATION is what has brought me here to this point and has brought you here to this point.

It hurts me to see people suffering.  It hurts again when I know they can be helped, and they aren’t receiving the information and care that can help them.

The solutions being offered to 95% of those suffering ARE NOT solutions; they are masks, band-aids! There is a place for band-aids, drugs, and surgeries, but let’s not mistake those for addressing the cause – they don’t.

Perhaps the worst part of this is that many people believe their condition is improving while the drugs are only making them FEEL better while the tissue disease and damage WORSEN.

Oh, I’m all for feeling better, but not at the cost of the subtle death of nerves…or toes.

If you are taking Pregabalin, Gabapentin, Amitriptyline, you may be heading down this deceptive path.  Is it possible to NOT feel these symptoms anymore?

The answer is YES ! 

It usually begins with numbness, prickling or tingling in the toes or fingers. As the condition worsens, the symptoms spread to the feet or hands and cause burning, freezing, throbbing and/or shooting pain that is often worse at night.

The pain may be constant, or it may come and go. The pain is usually felt equally on both sides of the body—in both hands or in both feet. Some types of peripheral neuropathy develop suddenly, while others progress more slowly over many years.

Weakness, numbness, and loss of feedback to the brain from the numb area commonly results in not being able to hold something, not knowing where your feet are, and experiencing pain that feels as if it is stabbing or burning in your limbs.

These pictures are meant to be an exaggeration, but they really aren’t.  The pain can be debilitating.  The classic symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include one or more of these:

  • A sensation of wearing an invisible “glove” or “sock”
  • Burning sensation or freezing pain
  • Sharp, jabbing, shooting, or electric-like pain
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Difficulty sleeping because of feet and leg pain
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Muscle weakness
  • Unusual sweating
  • Abnormalities in blood pressure or pulse
  • Eventually, this leads to Difficulty walking or moving the arms
  • And the numbness makes you unaware of cuts or nicks that lead to ulcers and amputations of toes.

We always have the option to keep doing what we have been doing.  But if your condition has worsened to the point it is now, what will keep it from continuing?  Even with conventional medical wound care, which I strongly encourage, the options become limited.
