Treatment of neuropathy ranges from holistic therapies to natural supplements. Acupuncture often serves as a successful treatment for neuropathy pain. Daily supplements also help facilitate pain and symptoms associated with neuropathy.
What is Neuropathy?
Caused by nerve damage, neuropathy results in weakness, numbness and pain generally localized in the hands and feet. Additional symptoms include the general loss of feeling in the nerves, loss of control of different muscles, burning pain, extreme sensitivity to touch and changes in the skin, hair and nails.
The exact cause of neuropathy is often difficult to identify. Several contributing factors have been identified, however. Alcoholism, autoimmune disease, diabetes, exposure to poison, medication, infection, genetics, trauma, tumors and vitamin deficiencies all contribute to the onset of neuropathy.
Natural Remedies for Nerve Damage
Several natural remedies have been identified for treating nerve pain. Acupuncture and several other therapeutic remedies have proven effective for managing neuropathy. Additionally, supplements including alpha-lipoic acid, B vitamins and calcium are also successful natural options.
Alpha-lipoic acid is a vitamin-like chemical that functions as an antioxidant. As such, the compound prevents and repairs specific types of cell damage and improves the function of neurons. Alpha-lipoic acid also replenishes levels of vitamin E and C.
B vitamins are especially important for treating neuropathy as they play an important role in normal nerve function. A complete B vitamin complex is crucial one of the most effective options for treating nerve pain.
Calcium serves an important role in transporting nerve impulses. Using calcium as a supplement helps regulate the nerve transmissions in the body to regulate plain. Calcium also helps balance the body’s acid-alkaline proportion.

[YEA] I found this website when looking for info about neuropathy. My husband has had two back surgeries and has suffered with neuropathy ever since, especially his right leg. Most of the time, it feels like it is waking up from being asleep with things that feel like sparkles ALL THE TIME, but sometimes he gets something like electrical shocks that zip down his leg. We got alpha lipoic acid 100 mg and acetyl L-carnitine 500 mg at a local store. He started first with just the ALA one tablet and felt relief the second day. After a few days with just the ALA, we added the acetyl L-carnitine. He is able to sleep at night, and even if he has been really active and his leg is doing really badly, it doesn't take as long for the shocks to go away. He has been able to stop taking Neurontin, Methocarbamol, Xanax, etc and is much more active. We tell everyone about this combination, even our chiropractor and MD. We also tell them about the website. Thanks so much.
