L-theanine and Neuropathy

Monday, 07 November 2011 08:04 AM

Question: My boyfriend was given a diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy. Do you think it would be safe for him to take L-theanine?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

One cannot assume peripheral neuropathy, as it could be a number of other problems. For example, one can have spinal stenosis, severe anemia, heavy metal poisoning, or vascular disease of the vessels supplying the legs. It would be best to have a thorough workup to track down the exact cause. L-theanine would be safe, but he needs a specific diagnosis.
