My feet were hurting really bad and I decided to take a capsule of 1000 mg of calcium/magnesium. It helped and my feet are not hurting anymore.

I met a person at a health food store that purchased 6 bottles of celery seed. He said he takes 9 per day and it resolves his peripheral neuropathy. I have that condition so I bought one bottle and it magnified my tinnitus. If anyone tries this please let the readers know how it affects you. Celery is also good for blood pressure. It's supposed to bring blood to the extremities as well/open veins. Thx. And good luck

I put a pea size of coconut oil in each ear ( daily or as needed) and it has DRAMATICALLY REDUCED the ringing in my ears that has been non stop for many years. PEACE

I read you can use a Q tip with a bit of hydrogen peroxide prior to putting the coconut oil in there, if that helps you....

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.

I've been taking a number of supplements and natural remedies for neuropathy for almost a year now, each having a range of effectivness, advantages and disadvatages. They include D3, B12 and chewing on raw ginger. I was surprised when I realized what actually helped the most. A mug of coffee works the best and gives the longest lasting relief. It took a while for me to figure this out because I generally don't drink it that much, only when I really need to stay awake for work or a long drive. I still limit my coffee consumption but not as much as I used to. Obviously, don't drink it in the evening if you want to get your sleep.

I'd be interested in learning how this works for others. All I know is I'm getting a lot of relief when I have my 12 oz. Mug of it. It lasts me through almost the entire work day.

Once I eliminated ALL caffeine from my diet, my hands and feet felt so much better. (numbness and pain went completely away.) I am apparently allergic to caffeine...and I didn't find out until I as 50 years old and a lot of trial and error.

Keep looking, it could just be something in your diet.

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.

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.

I've been successfully taking the vitamin formula to correct peripheral neuropathy in my feet. However as the numbness clears up I found the tingling itch on the ball of my foot driving me up the wall. Finally I tried soaking my feet in warm water with about a quarter cup of epsom salt, and it is bringing relief.

We all know this Neuropathy makes one feel unsteady emotionally. I am searching like all of you I want to share what I'm doing with all of you. The first of this year 2014, not sleeping, Ambien made me suicidal. With the help of Angels, it's a miracle I'm typing this message. I'm a trauma survivor (abuse as a child).

I love myself and worthy of the best that love and life has to offer (affirmation).

I found a Neuropathy treatment that Medicare pays for it.

One thing does not fix Neuropathy. It is many things.

I'm changing my diet, probiotics (digestion and healthy gut), B vitamins, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, vit D, Chinese herbs adrenals & circulation, etc.), acupuncture, trauma counselor, energy emotional release , physical therapy, essential oils (helichrysum etc.), affirmations, family support is crucial.

Essiac Tea

Posted by Karen (Tampa, Fl) on 10/27/2012

Dear Wayseeker, How are you doing with the Essiac Tea? How many drinks per day are you using? You said your initial diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy was incorrect. What is your correct diagnosis? I heard that the shock machine test is terrible. Would you care to elaborate?

I've been taking 3- 2 ounce drinks per day of Essiac tea for 6 days so far and no change in my tingling, shocks, burns etc. Etc. Etc. Also cold feet from the knees down.. Thanks much...


Flagyl

Posted by Liz (United Kingdom) on 08/18/2014

Hello Bill and Everyone,

My name is Liz and I am 47 and from England UK. I have just found this forum and it seems wonderful how helpful everyone is.

Please please may I ask for your advice, I too am suffering from neuropathy from medication as Diane ( My Very Best Wishes to you Diane, my thoughts are with you). I really need some help please, I have neuropathy caused by the antibiotic flagyl (metranidazole). I have had this for 9 weeks and it is awful, I know all of you are familiar with this horrid condition I and I feel for everyone.

Do you have any advice on what I can do to rid myself of this poison, it has been nine weeks since I stopped the tablets and I am really suffering pains all over my body especially feet arms and legs, balance not good and anxiety awful, I am so very frightened I really would appreciate any help you can give.

I am taking fish oil, a small amount of alopoic acid and acetyl l cartnine ( 25mg of R lipoic acid and 250 mg of ALCAR). I am taking 1000mg of Vit B12,

200 mg magnesium glycinated, 160mg of benfotamine and Vitamine C, I have been told all these help but I actually feel worse.

Is there anythign specific I can take to rid my body of this damn poison. I am so very frightened. Thank You So Very Much.

My Very Best Wishes, Liz

Antibiotics tend to wipe out good bacteria that produce b vitamins in the intestine. A reputable probiotic including at least 10 differnt strains of bacteria might help.


GABA

Posted by Annie (EU) on 09/24/2014

Hi, can anybody tell me if it is safe to take GABA supplements in conjunction with nerve pain medication. Also how would you go about coming off them. CAn anybody recommend a brand for nerve pain, as I don't think natural options are something my doctor would know about and I live quite rurally here, so don't have access to a naturalpath. Thankyou

Annie: I have been taking GABA on & off for several yrs w/ no problem and am not aware of any kind of interaction w/ other supplements or drugs. The only warning that I am aware of is to not operate machinery or motor vehicles fallowing larger doses like 1 or more grams as it will cause drowsiness. It's best taken before retiring. Start w/ 500mg and see if this is suitable; if not take 1grm which should do the job of relaxing and reducing the pain and anxiety.

Always read the insert info monograph of any or all prescription medication so as to avoid bad side effects. My Dr insisted taking Statin drug for high cholesterol and I was already aware of most of the side effects but I had to search further as even half dose was very much aggravating my neuropathy. I eventually had to drop the statin altogether as I would need trading my cane for a walker.

You might also read about the nutrient Inosine as it has been shown to improve nerve conditions.

I have severe neuropathy, according to several neurologists that I have seen they call my condition Neuropathy but when I look up my symptoms I think they are different from what others experience.. I have had this for about 20 years and it is starting to grind me down.. I have shooting sharp pains all over my body, could be in my eye next second my leg face arm and alternates all over my body.. Its like someone has a voodoo doll of me and they are stabbing me all over.. It never stops I can't cant count to 30 without having a stabbing pain somewhere I have had nerve conduction tests etc.. All normal.. All the dr's do is prescribe gabapentin, neurontin, cymbalta, all work at first then after a few days I am back where I started... Its starting to wake me up at night which is new.. Any one out there experience these symptoms, I really need some help or advice.. I can't take this much longer HELP.. right now I am not taking anything for it...

Scottj, I have had the same thing for 2 years. I started taking sea salt and water for 2 days and it has subsided considerably. My guess is that in a month I will be free from all this pain. Go to watercure2.org and follow the instructions. It's free and easy... 1/2 you body weight in ounces of water and 1/4 sea salt for every quart of water. You BUILD to the amount necessary. It works!

I had very painful nueropathy a few years ago. My doctor offered me pain meds and that was all he could offer. I read about Burdock Root being helpful for it. I took 3 capsules 3x a day. It can take a while for it to work but for me I was improving a lot in a week or two. It is recommended that you take Burdock for 3 months to maximize the effect. I took it for at least 6 months. This was several years ago and the problem did not return. Burdock Root cleanses the blood. It is a vegetable, it is not dangerous to take this.

I have peripheral neuropathy and have tried everything on this site and more to no avail... My assumption is it's from cirrhosis that I had in 7/2011 which I got rid of with several therapies...

My neuropathy is horrendous and for the last 2 months I constantly have twitches and muscle jerks which are quite maddening... The muscle jerks keep me awake most of the night... That and the CONSTANT hot needles, electric shocks INFLAMED feet are making life very, very painful... If anyone could offer any suggestions I would be grateful, mostly on the muscle jerks as I feel the only way to get rid of my neuropathy is to get rid my my hepatitis C... I'm quite a mess... About 14 months ago I was running and working out... No more... Have trouble getting up stairs...

I even tried lions mane which came highly recommended and only gave me a splitting headache... Thank you for reading...

Karen: if you successfully reversed Cirrhosis, please post your methods as this could help others. I am fallowing some of the studies Professor Derik Mann is doing w/ noticeable results, unfortunately it's all undocumented and undiagnosed; but seems obvious to me and further verified by your symptoms of Neuropathy as I have many of the same but with less severity.

It seems appropriate to do some heavy metal detoxing as well as possible zenobiotics. Ionic Foot Spa, Detox Foot Pads, Steam or Sauna, increase antioxidants and Glutathione. Wear Magnetic foot soles. The very first few minutes of wearing magnetic foot soles elicited the shocking or voltage-like sensation from my feet to my liver. Clay and Mineral foot or whole-body baths will also help.

Timh, What name brand of magnetic foot soles? There are many types on the web... I take saunas and many antioxidents... I can't sit too long as cramping in my calves and leg biceps is a HUGE problem... Can't think straight at times...

ultra violet blood irradation with 2 1/2 cc's of H2O2 at the end took me out of cirrohosis in 6 months... I had 10 treatments and was cleared of cirrosis after 5... It cost me $1700. 00.. Each treatment takes about an hour... They remove your blood and put it thru a untra violet light machine and then re-infuse it again inot you thru the machine... So the blood gets exposed to the ultra violet light twice... At the end they put in the H2O2... Also, while I was doing this, they had a Far Infra Red pad placed over my liver the whole time...

Karen: I have used two different m soles but wore them out and couldn't tell you the brand, sorry. Try to find a magnetic kit w/ various sizes, soles, and such as you would likely profit from wearing a belt over the liver, as I have. If you happen to have any extra refrigerator magnets laying around the house you could cut and fit for the soles. The side that sticks to metal is the side you want to contact the body with.

Also, I will second Mmsg's Epsom Salt bath recommendation as I have good results with. MSM is also good for detox and oxygen boosting; I get good energy boost with MSM. ALA is good for detox, Liver health, and neuropathy.

HI Timh, I put 2 refrigerator magnets in my shoes as suggested... I woke up about 3:00AM with a sharp pain in my left knee, which I have never had trouble with in my life... Then I had shooting pains neeedle stuff in my left big toe... Then 1/2 hour later the same in my left shoulder... This is powerful stuff... I wouldn't have believed it... I put clove oil on my continuous pain in my left knee and it went away in an hour.. The pins and hot shots continued everywhere for about 3 hours...

I wore the magnets about 6 hours yesterday and of course took them off when I went to bed... I will wait a day or so and do it again with just one magnet... I used the ones that are about 2 inches wide by 4 inches long... I'll cut back to just one magnet and do it just and hour a day and see how that works... Thank you for the tip... A magnet in my shoe effects my shoulder... Amazing! Lots of tingling in my feet too...

Karen: I had similar reaction when first using magnets. The foot soles is the central point of all the body's meridian lines. Magnets, detox foot pads, and detox foot spas all work the entire body thru the feet.

For the specific places of pain, also place the magnet. Usually the stronger the magnet the better. If you happen to have an old blown music speaker laying around the house or garage, extract that speaker/magnet and use it.

Please update us as to your progress.

I have used two different brands and really can't say what's best in that regard as both pair last about 1 yr then split into two or three pieces. I've tried electric tape with some help but not enough. Just the other day I took the magnetic insole pieces and glued them to generic rubber shoe insoles, and so-far so-good.
