Burning, tingling, numbness - all symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. When nerves are damaged by chemotherapy, this painful condition can impair quality of life and even limit treatment. Join our guest, Australian naturopath and clinical nutritionist, Janet Schloss, who shares exciting findings from her research on the use of B12 to treat peripheral neuropathy.

She has also lectured at the Endeavour College formerly known as the Australian College of Natural Medicine for over 14 years and is now a senior research officer with the Office of Research at Endeavour.
Janet's main speciality is with people who have cancer, especially assisting patients undergoing medical treatment.
