Replying to Posted by Kay (Tampa, Fl.) on 05/12/2013:

Art, I saw your 4/5/13 post where you said you take both Chanca Piedra (500 mg/day) and R-ALA (which you take 500 mgs every meal and it is keeping it under control. I have horrendous neuropathy and have tried everything. I have it in my feet calves, arms and it is moving up my thigh. I get very little sleep as I have terrible hot knife stabbings all night long everywhere. My liver enzymes are over 100 each and have been for years. I have tried the Berkson remedy and took 1000 mgs milk thistle for 10 months and nothing changed. Also do you have an opinion on the clinical test trial called GS 7977? Thank you and God Bless.

Hi Kay,

I too suffered neuropathy mostly in my feet to the point I almost couldn't walk. I cut out all carbs, as much fat as I could, and started juicing 1.5 celery heads a day in the AM on an empty stomach, I started eating tons of apples, bananas, grapes, and any other fruit I could get my hands on. I fresh squeeze oranges to make at least 16 Oz of juice and some days 32 Oz of OJ, however I didn't drink OJ every day, but at least three times a week.

I basically cut almost all meat out of my diet except maybe a small piece of chicken for dinner. I started eating sweet potatoes and just regular potatoes with NO BUTTER/NO SOUR CREAM with only a tiny pinch of pink salt. I'm taking an adrenal support supplement every night before bed called HPA AXIS, Mega Hydrate 2 X daily, juice apples, cucumber and barley grass powder along with Spirulina daily also. I started taking full spectrum CBD OIL 500 mg once daily and finally after two months, the symptoms are subsiding. I honestly think my diet was killing me. I have been prediabetic and was always afraid to eat too much fruit.

The trick is to eat lots of fruit and cut out the meat and the fat. Eat lots of veggies especially green veggies and cruciferous. I'm sure it will help you, but be patient because it probably took you a while to get into that condition. Good luck to you.

Hi Laura, just read your posting of several years ago. 1st. Gabapentine did they sell it back then? To me I would never take due to how dangerous the side effects are. Did you suffer Side Effects at all? How long did you take? Did it really help your pain? Is there an R-Lipoic Acid? Thank you, I too love this site, however, I have lots of priorities so I can't view for hours, but would love to because I pass on info to others that need it.

If I can be of assistance with anything pls contact me. Joseph

I have peripherals neuropathy from the antibiotic Levaquin..It took several years to determine this as dr's told me it's idiopathic which means they don't know where it came from...There are several drugs called fluoroquinolones that can cause neuropathy...I haven't yet met a dr who knows this..The drugs are CIPRO, LEVAQUIN, AVELOX, FLOXIN NOROXI, FLOXACIN...DO NOT TAKE THESE DRUGS NO MATTER WHAT YOUR DR SAYS..IT'S YOUR HEALTH NOT HIS/HERS.ANY SPECIAL REMEDIES FOR THIS KIND OF NEUROPATHY..I HAVE TRIED MANY THINGS...These drugs were made for cancer as they are chemotherapy..They didn't work so the Drug companies relabeled them as ANTIBIOTICS..NICE HUH?? I went to a dr with food poisoning lost 30 pounds in 4 days and he put me on Levaquin..HUGE MISTAKE ON MY PART TAKING THEM

I haven't purchased this item, nor have I tried it however I have viewed enough about how it can significantly help your Neuropathy pain and other ailments including Anxiety with a home kit that I will purchase in time. Rebuilder medical inc., $900 yes it is expensive, however for what it does at home is well worth it. You can plug it in and use to treat Severe Anxiety at home, it stops any Anxiety because it is tough to experience pain when you are totally placed in peaceful mood. Neuropathy is also treated, however if not treated you can suffer much pain and possible amputation. 877 717-5487.

Invented by Dr Phillips. It is FDA cleared money back guaranteed, lifetime warranty. Goggle your questions, view a demonstration. I myself will purchase this product when I can afford it.

B Vitamins, ALA and Butcher's Broom

Vitamins b1 to b6 and b12, plus ala and butcher's broom, reduced my diabetes neuropathy by about 70% and another 10% by not using a recliner chair to watch tv. Maybe it presses on the nerves in the legs.

Wet Soap Applied to Feet

Bar of Soap (place in water, and when wet, rub on feet) I walk a lot and I had the worst tingling, prickly feeling and pain in my feet lately, and a stubbed toe! I think I overused them in the heat too. I could hardly walk, it felt like I was walking on sharp glass! I remembered a bar of soap has something in it, that helps restless leg syndrome, so I decided to try rubbing a wet bar of soap on my feet all over (dunk the soap in water and keep it wet so it rubs on easily). I took a couple ibuprofin too, after rubbing the soap on my feet! My feet felt soooo much better! I couldn't believe it! It's worth a try! I used Coconut Dial soap. You may have to reapply it after awhile too.

Chiropractic Adjustments

5 out of 5 stars

Hi, my name is Bobbie and I am suffering from neuropathy and sciatica in the same leg at the same time and it has been in painful situation. I finally starting getting relief when I went to see a chiropractor. I went to one that did adjustments only with a couple of tables and the adjustments started to help but after a month on of the doctors there told me that I needed a different type of treatment and told me to go to another office that had more equipment and different treatments so I did.

After the first treatment I started to feel better and after the second treatment the sciatica pain was gone almost completely but I still had some burning and numbness from the neuropathy. The third treatment got me a good night's sleep, which I hadn't had in months.

Before going to the chiropractor I used DSMO which helped at first and then it made things worse. I took turmeric daily which helped some but it takes months to get enough in your system to do what is needed. I tried a lot of other things on this site but I am not a patient person and wanted a right now cure so I move on to something else.

I am sticking with the chiropractor because I felt results with the first, second, third, etc.... The low back pain, buttock pain, feet and hand tingling, numbness and burning are down to annoying, the shooting and intense pain are annoying and I can sleep on and off and I am not crying.

As I read some of the other comments I see that some things works for others but not all so I hope this will help some of you. I will post again as I progress.

If B12 deficiency goes on too long, it can be permanent.

Black stools mean blood loss. You may have something more complicated in there. I would go to the ER. For me, I have had duodenal ulcer since 2009, I believe originated with vaccine injury. Stephanie Seneff found the MMR vaccine is contaminated with Round Up.this has caused me world's of illness. And guess what? Round Up us widespread in the food supply. Tony Mitra's Poisin Foods has a 7000 foods list and what amounts are found in various foods. Canada is #1 for Round Up contamination. USA is #2. Mexico is one of the cleanest. They declared themselves glyphosate free this year. Glyphosate destroys gut bacteria at 0.1 ppb. Gut bacteria are supremely important for our health and mental health. Most of our serotonin is made in the gut. Tony Mitra ffg ound even organic labeled good could be contaminated. Because USDA Only requires 3 years of no spraying. Dr Huber says glyphosate has a 22 year half life in the soil. They dont use testing as a standard.

I've been using MSM for years to prevent gallstones and my neuropathy just continued on. My initial neuropathy was from B12 deficiency, which was from chronic diarrhea, which was from vaccine injury.

Hi 2q&learn from Southern Ca:

Mike62 hasn't been on this site for awhile, but when he refers to organic baby leaves, I believe it is the organic baby spring mix you can find in the plastic containers at most grocery stores.

If you do an Internet search for baby spring mix, you will come up with various store products - some organic, some not.

Take care!

2q&learn, ORH here, MIKE 62 was a gamesman, who was on this site years ago. His claim to fame was blowing smoke and he got you from the archives. He smoked lots of folks before D got his number. Beware of double talk. When I get too far out of line, D just flushes my post or I contact her and tell her to do it for me. I know when I'm flirting with the boundaries.

Since her knee had just been replaced via surgery, I doubt the Ted on earthcliinic is the source of the pain cream recommended to April. I still tried to look it up, though, but only found Ted's Pain Cream (which is now changed to Ted's Pain Gel). What it is & how it came to be is shared here:

I could not sleep because of tingling sensations in my legs.

I eliminated gluten, dairy, soy and limited sugar and carbs but I still could not sleep. I eliminated eggs and I am cured.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Hi Patty,

When you say it has helped your neuropathy 'go away', do you mean it has healed your neuropathy and you no longer suffer from this condition?

600 mg of alpha lipoic acid has helped my neuropathy go away. You may have to take this dosage twice a day for awhile but it works.

Grapeseed Oil

A few years ago I read on a discussion forum type thing like this one but have not been able to find the right references. Anyhow, I read where people with peripheral neuropathy (Soles) rubbed in grapeseed OIL before bed and in the morning it was gone. Well, I tried it. In the Morning feet were the same. Next night again. Nothing Next night nothing. Bugger! I thought about it, found it was omega 6. Not the healthiest drink and thought why not. My feet are killing me, even walking on raised ripples in wet sand.

Got a bottle of organic, cold pressed grapeseed oil and drank a big swig straight from the bottle. 3 X a day. The third day no change. 4th morning got out of bed and could not believe it. My sole pain was ABSOLUTELY GONE!! I had 550 ml left from a 1 liter bottle so it worked out that I took 50ml each swig. My soles felt tender with not a tinge of pain and felt like the baby's bottom.

I never took any more from that moment on and it was gone for over a year or more. I could walk on any surface with ease. It came back eventually so slowly that after a couple of years I am about to repeat it.

I just had my right knee replaced and my doctor suggested that Ted's cream might help to reduce my pain during the healing process. There were some specific areas that seemed to be numb and tingly. So, that's where I tried it first and to my surprise, the cream made a huge difference!! So much so that I decided to try it also on my feet. I have neuropathy in both of my feet. We haven't quite figured out why but I deal with numbness and tingling in the balls of my feet and around the toes. Little itty-bitty pieces of sand on a floor feel like boulders if I stepped on it. I would rub in the cream on the balls of my fee and on my toes and it reduces that tingling and the "pins and needles" feeling by nearly 80 percent. I do take Gabapentin, which helps in general to reduce those feelings. but I sure am glad that I tried Ted's remedy on my feet. Thank you for doing the research that you did to come up with this cream I Love it for nerve related pain!

EC: Hi, thank you for the feedback!

Can you send us the url on Earth Clinic where you found Ted's cream or list the ingredients so people don't have to fish around for it on Ted's site ( Thank you!

I was experiencing severe neuropathy in my legs and feet for the past year to the point of just about getting ready to order a walker from Amazon just a few days ago as was tripping over things while walking and walking with a severe limp. However I accidentally came across DSMO that took away all the pain because I remember Ted had suggested it's use for cancer pain along with lavender oil. Within 15 minutes of applying this to my legs and feet, I was able to get out of bed and walk normal without pain and a limp. Frankly, I shocked myself with the way I walked as this DSMO is like a miracle for me and I just have to share it as I know how unbearable neuropathy pain had become for me that I want others to be able to get relief from the suffering as I did. I bought my in about glass bottle and poured it into a glass spray bottle and spray it onto my legs, feet, and hands as I have arthritic hands too. There is a heating sensation initially. I also apply magnesium chloride oil along with DSMO because I have been getting lots of leg cramps. But I have no doubt it is the DSMO that took away the pain.

Reading reviews of people who purchased DSMO, they find relief for pains related to sprains, arthritis, psoriasis, back pain, amongst others. Well, I have been working in the yard, lifting things, shoveling truck load of sand and mulch for the past three days since I started using DSMO with one or two applications per day and it has done wonders for my neuropathy. It hasn't been as miraculous for my arthritis as I can still feel some stiffness in the joints, but it did reduce the pain about 80 percent, which is still progress.

I hope it can work as well for others regarding neuropathy pain. Would love to hear how this product works for others. I conveniently ordered mine from Amazon. Will order an extra bottle to keep on hand as I love how it allows me to be able to functional somewhat normally again and to walk without an aid.

Can anyone tell me which tests are most accurate for vitamin/minerals like b12 .I did a high mineral test that revealed everything was low. I was told to take Lithium and then b12 or else the b12 would get lower. Then I did a Spectracell test which stated most b vitamin were low except b12. Very frustarting to know what to do. I have systemic candida and am developing Neuropathy.

thank you

Alpha Lipoic Acid

That's a low dose for pain.. most use 1000mg/day just for energy. For liver disease 800-1600/day. For chronic pain ... I've read 2000-3000mg/day. Should be broken down 2-3 times a day ... 30 min before meals.
