Here's a heads up for you the reader...

I heard about "Frequency Specific Micro Current "therapy from my chiropractor... I looked into it and called about 10 therapists around the country... 8 told me that they could cure peripheral neuropathy in ONE treatment... I had 14 treatments lasting 2 hours (28 hours).. IT CHANGED NOTHING!

I also had 14 treatments 2 hours each (28 hours) for hepatitis-c and had my enzymes checked at the end and they went UP! By just a few point however... Maybe it will work for you...however!

My 92 year old granny just called wanting me to get her some EMU oil. She said that a friend of her said it might help her Neuropathy. (Her friend uses it for arthritis).

Since she is in an assisted living situation with her pills doled out to her and she already taking drugs for high blood pressure, kidney issues, thyroid meds... She is looking for something to apply topically.

Has anyone used EMU OIL for Neuropathy?

HI Lisa, I have poly-neuropathy which is not good... Would you know if stem cells would help my condition or would you recommend a place that might have the answer and/or treatment... My doctors tell me that there is nothing they can do , it's uncurable... I do no believe that and won't settle for any else but a cure... however, I need to know the road..

Thank you and bless you.

Hi Denise, From what my doctors told me, neurological disorders are some of the easiest for them to repair. On the other hand, each case is individual so the Dr.will ask you about your particular situation and then give you an assessment. I posted here to another woman with the link to the stem cell center I went to. I went to Ecuador but a week after I returned they opened Trinidad and now in Grand Cayman and Jamaica.

Also, if you look at one of my posts, ON YOUTHING I put up a link of Donna Gates interview and she talks all about stem cell therapy which you might find enlightening.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, Lisa

Hello Lisa, Thank you very much for your response...

I am very interested in stem cell treatment... Could you possibly give me a way to contact you for more information... I don't know if this is OK for the site or not... I, of course, have a lot of questions which could be answered much easier than this site... But again I don't know if this is appropriate...

Thank you again...

About a month ago I came down with the flu so I didn't take most of my supplements until I got better including grapeseed extract (not grapefruit seed) While I was off of the supplements I noticed that my legs were very painful because I take Alpha Lipoic Acid for my neuropathy. Anyways, I started taking the Grapeseed extract again only 2 - 100 mg capsules in the morning and right away the pain went away. IF anyone has neuropathy pain you might want to try the grapeseed extract for the pain. Please let me know if it helps.

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 appreciate your experiences with grape seed oil and wonder if I should run down and buy some. I am not a diabetic and believe that a back injury has caused my nerves in my feet to explode. They burn and sometimes feel like I have broken bones in my feet making it hard to walk. my feet still burn and now the pain has moved on top on my foot and to my ankle. I fear it will travel up my legs. Seriously, I need help. A pain transmitter installed in my back doesn't guarantee anything and may be a waste of time. If anyone can offer. ore solution God will bless you if you share. Thanks.


Guilliain Barre

Posted by Pclouds (Annapolis,md) on 11/03/2013 1 posts

A good friend was just diagnosed w Guillain Barre after getting a flu shot a week ago. I wondered if any of you have insight on treatments or cures that would lessen her issues. She has no feeling in her hands and falls a lot. Currently she is in intensive care at hospital. Doctors have dismissed flu shot as correlation to this sudden onset. Any suggestions are most welcome. Many thanks for all the great info and wisdom you provide here.

In regards to "Doctors have dismissed flu shot as correlation to this sudden onset"

Vaccines are behind the cause of Guillian Barre and other chronic diseases.

There are disinformation studies which say that there is no link but they base that on saying that there were no vaccines given in six week prior and then claim they are safe. Some people are effected immediately while others aren't effected for many years or decades afterwards.

Your friend being treated by such doctors is the first danger. They will pump her with synthetic medicines that may put her health at further risk.

I don't have any treatment suggestions outside of finding a naturopath who has dealt with it before.

Hepatitis C and Neuropathy Link

Posted by Diane (Sherborn,ma.) on 05/01/2014

I'm hoping either Ted or Bill can chime in on this one. It's a rather startling revelation to me and I'm betting to those suffering the same conditions...I spoke to my liver Dr. yesterday in a hospital in Boston and she said that in the over 2,000 patients she has treated, she has never heard of hepatitis c causing neuropathy with one of her patients. I've been led to believe that hep-c caused my neuropathy, as I don't have diabetes and have been tested 3 times...and never had chemo.

Hi Diane...In a study published in the BMJ in 2003 it was found that varying degrees of peripheral neuropathy, in the form of cryoglobulinaemia, commonly occurred in patients with Hep C. They found that 40 of 51 Hepatitic C patients had this form of peripheral neuropathy.

Peripheral Neuropathy in Hepatitis C

Although the numbers may vary, if you type "Hepatitis C neuropathy" in Google Search you will find many other instances and confirmations that this form of peripheral neuropathy commonly occurs together with Hep C as well as in other diseases like leukemia and pneumonia.

In other studies it has also been suggested that this form of peripheral neuropathy is caused by auto-antibody response arising due to a heavily stressed immune system because of the HCV factor. Nevertheless, cryoglobulinaemia is still referred to in medical research as an idiopathic disease.

idiopathic = completely clueless as to the real cause of the disease

Treatment of cryoglobulinaemia is normally entirely palliative(treat the symptoms) using analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs, since there appears to be no apparent cure.

I also think that your liver doctor needs to open a book or go on a Hep C refresher course or perhaps she just needs to renew her dusty but outdated Standard of Care Manual.

Lastly Bill...It it a safe assumption that if I get rid of hep-c, my poly peripheral neuropathy will go far away??? Here's hoping...and thank you again very very much...Blessings to you and your family...

Hi Diane...Yes, for the most part, the peripheral neuropathy is caused by the Hep C. As I've said, modern medical research has no understanding of this form peripheral neuropathy caused by Hep C but Ted has stated that in certain cases of peripheral neuropathy the cause may be due to pathogenic infection -- usually of mycoplasma or fungal origin -- although I would not rule out viral infection as well. The Hep C neuropathy arises because of a heavily weakened liver, immune system and blood transport system which is ultimately caused by the Hep C virus. This allows poisons to accumulate in the blood due to an inefficient excretory system(liver). This also lowers the immune protection and makes cell oxygenation inefficient thus allowing other pathogens into the body to cause separate though related Hep C problems such as peripheral neuropathy, fatigue and joint pain.

Bill, I was put on Atenolol in 2003 because my father had heart issues at my age-- big mistake on my part... I wound up with a resting pulse of 160 got horrendous cold extremities followed by a radio frequency cather ablation operation (4 1/2 hours)...They fixed my heart but I kept the terrible cold extremities which I never had before...Then in 2012 I had a respiratory infection and had TWO cycles of Cipro...then 6 months later I got stage 4 chirossis (I also have hep-c)...and my peripheral neuropathy came on terrible within a week of when I was diagnosed with stage 4 chirrosis...Would you hazzard a guess what the original cause of my neuropathy was so I may be able to address it...I have tried everything out there..Could the antibiotcs cause the neuropathy or maybe the Atenolol? Or the hep-c? Just looking for an educated guess as my doctors have no clue...thank you...again and again..

You may want to look into how these meds deplete necessary nutrients. A quick search turned up CoQ10 depletion from the atenolol and global B vitamin depletion as well as zinc from the Cipro.

CoQ10 depletion has been associated with statins and the very bad side effects many people suffer from them. You may want to see if any of the CoQ10 deficiency symptoms line up with yours, especially the ones that began after the atenolol. If not, cold extremities are a classic sign of iodine deficiency/hypothyroid.

The worsening of your viral infection (hepatitis) after the Cipro is interesting in light of the fact that your B vitamins may have been depleted because I do wonder how much the b's help us with viral defense, especially of herpes viruses, which travel on nerves.

Anyhoo, CoQ10 is easy to get as a supplement and you can get b vitamins through brewers yeast and liver or as supplements as well.

Hi Diane...Both the Atenolol and the Cipro can cause neuropathies. Their many side effects are listed here and here on drugs.com and these lists are huge. Please notice that Atenolol can also cause cold hands and feet as well as racing heart. Cipro contains fluorine, a poison for the body, and fluorine depletes the thyroid of iodine -- which can also cause loss of energy, cold extremities, brain fog or pins and needles and a host of other problems.

Atenolol is a beta blocker that is supposed to slow down the heart beat but in many instances does exactly the opposite. Beta blockers just treat the symptoms, they do not cure the core reasons for heart problems.

I also have nothing good to say about Cipro, which is a fluoroquinolone antiobiotic that also also contains fluorine as well. Everyone knows my low opinion of anti-biotics, but taking an anti-biotic that contains fluorine as well will have even worse effects upon the body -- and to me this is completely crazy. I must also add that Cipro and other fluoroquinolone antibiotics have also been linked to severe liver and renal toxicity -- see this link. At a guess, I would say that that this liver and renal toxicity may well be at least be partially linked to the high fluorine content of this drug.

To get rid of the fluorine and to help with the cold extremities in your body I would take a liquid kelp extract on a daily basis. The thyroid controls the temperature and metabolic rate of the body, so if you improve the thyroid then you improve its ability to properly control body temperature at the extremities. Removing the fluorine will take a while because fluorine is normally absorbed and stored in the bones and teeth as well as in the glandular regions of the body.

Because of all the above reasons, I cannot exactly say with any certainty what has caused your neuropathy because, as well as Hep C itself being a cause, because there are too many other possible drug related side-effects that could also have caused it.

And the next time your doctor gives you any pills to take -- go straight to drugs.com and look up their side-effects and THEN decide whether you want to take the pills or not.

Hi Bill, Thank you again for your wonderful feedback. I indeed do now check before I take any drugs...

How much liquid kelp extract should I use or could I use Lugols iodine as a substitute? Or will the extra minerals in kelp help more than Lugols?

Three times I was prescribed drugs that would have put me in anaphylectic shock. I didn't recognize the name because the dr's used generic names which fooled me. My pharmacist caught it twice and I caught it once...AND the dr's have my records for things I am allergic to.

I'm wondering if Borax might help me as well? My shooting pains are throughout my entire body even my eyes get needle stabs in the middle of the night. It started with cold extremities and now I have electric shocks, stabbing needle pains and terrible cramps in my legs and everywhere else...Right now I cannot move my toes as they cramp terribly and are turning black. 24/7 pain...I DO indeed thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would not know where else to turn to as my dr's said there's nothing else they can do. Much, much blessings.

HI Bill, Thanks for the feedback with regard to borax and neuropathy...I would also like to know how one takes borax? I've read to take 1/8th teaspoon or 1/4 teaspoon. I've also read that you should take a break from it after 5 days and also after 3 days. I also read that you can take it for 3 weeks and then stop a week. Would like you opinion on this...Thank you much

Hi Diane...Normally, for women, you would take 1/8 tspn of borax in a liter of water and drink this liter of borax water throughout the day. You should take this remedy for 5 days and then have a rest from the protocol for at least 2 days in a cycle like that. For men, the dose should be 1/4 tspn borax in a liter of water.

If you wish to take a week's break from the borax protocol then that's also OK but when I used borax water for my own candida problems I took it on a 5 days on, 2 days off basis for 9 months without a break or a problem.

I have neuropathy in my toes and the balls of my feet and diagnosis said it was creeping back up my lower legs and had some loss of feeling in my geet and the bottoms of my feet. I had gotten pretty much rid of this before using vitamins. But this time it wasn't really working. I was trying to get back on a vegan diet which should have helped, but I was still failing and eating meat. I was looking for help until I could let the diet help. For over 2 years I haven't taken the statins that may have caused or contributed to it. Also, I am overweight.

In any case, my toes and feet were swelling and turning angry red, and often felt like they were on fire. My naturopath was out of town, but she emailed me and said since there was swelling she would send me to the ER or 24 hour clinic, as it might be heart related. Not wanting to expose myself to the purveyors of statins, stents, and quadruple bypass surgury, I researched further, looking for relief. An ad on earthclinic mentioned laser therapy for peripheral neuropathy symptom relief, so I clicked on it. Found a practitioner near home, and made an appointment.

He said the swelling was probably connected to the neuropathy, and that treatment might help but he couldn't guarantee it and that it was not a cure for neuropathy, but a reliever of symptoms, and that it would probably take some time to see results. He prescribed 6 weeks of treatment at a price I could not afford at this time.

I went back online hoping to maybe find Mexican doctors that could do it for less, just like Mexican dentists have repaired my teeth for way less. Didn't find any, but I did find ads for low level lasers that were way less powerful than the one the doctor had. People buy these to help their horses, dogs, and other animals. They also use these lasers on themselves. I had been told these weaker lasers don't work.

I have read there is zero change using lasers, period.

I bought one for $199. The first time I used it I saw immediate improvement, with swelling going down. 3rd treatment even more improvement.

I got the laser last Saturday. Today, Friday, less than a week later, with 4 total treatments and my feet are nearly normal. The neuropathy numbness is still there in my feet, but it seems to be getting better too.

I'm still getting prickles, but I remember when I got rid of the neuropathy before, that I had to go through some prickles and electric zaps just like I experienced when I was getting the neuropathy.

But the difference is like a miracle.

Better But With Side Effects

I just started tasking MSM for my neuropathy pain at 1 gram at night before bed. (I've seen recommendations of 6-20 grams a day.) Coincidentally I just started having diarrhea and black stools. Hard to believe it's from that low dose. However, I do have hep-c..

Any suggestions would be welcomed.. I certainly will stop MSM for several days and see what the result is.

Thank you. BTW the MSM is the FIRST thing that has helped with my neuropathy pain.

D: This is common condition called "herx" or "dieoff" reaction. The MSM is detoxing pathogens and dead tissue accumulated in your gallbladder and colon.


Advice is to continue at this small dose (when it's best to make it to the bathroom) and slowly increase the dose as you notice less discharge and lighter color.


If you can get up to 1 or 1.5 grm 3x per day that would be good progress and I don't recommend going above that, but instead take 1grm Vit-C w/ 1grm MSM 3x day which should be sufficient detox w/ only these two nutrients.

Additional remedies will be necessary to treat the hep-c or the condition will repeat unless you stay w/ the MSM/C. Here is a link to the E.C. hep-c page https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/hep_c.html

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.


Multiple Causes

Estrogen can morph into neurotransmitters. So on some level you could say it is a neurotransmitter. As hormone levels drop neuropathy can occur. Neuropathy in women can start within a decade of approaching menopause. There are quite a few studies out on estriol and Parkinsons as well.

If you know a senior lady who suddenly developed some neurological condition who is trying to find some answers, a good question to ask is "Did you recently stop taking estrogen?" I know of several women who developed neuropathy after 30 years of estrogen therapy- just stopping. There are some natural safer ways to increase estrogen, I understand.

What helped me was a very small daily dose of natural thyroid (not the synthetic). I tested fine but my body temp was always around 96.8. Subclinical thyroid conditions do exist and if there is neuropahy it is worth researching as well. I did not know it would do this. I was just tired of wearing a winter coat at work and shivering in the desert.

If iron is low neuropathy can occur. My experience is that the homeopathic Carc Carb 6x or blackstrap molasses (huge section in this site) was real helpful. I used to go to a Dr. In Pa who demand that you take blackstrap molasses every day. If you did not he could tell.

Anyway it is worth doing a search on the following: "Estrogen Neuropathy" "Menopause Neuropathy" "Anemia Neuropathy" "Hypothyroidism Neuropathy" "Estriol Parkinsons" Estrogen Neurotransmitter"

Another thing that can help is searching "Dosha Test" If the body type is Vata neuropathy can occur. There are ways to make corrections to diet and sleeping schedule that can bring relief.

I would like to know if anyone with stabbing electric shocks from peripheral neuropathy has cured/stopped them. I get them all over my body, feet, ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, fingers even in my eyes and the top of my head. They're so strong sometimes I almost black out. I actually see stars or a white light. I get them 24/7 My doctor said last week there's nothing more he can do. I have been on fentenyl patches, morphine, B-12 sublingual amd patches.

Diane from Sherborn, MA-

I used to have those almost unbearable electric, stabbing shocks on the instep of my foot. Then I researched and now use Amla powder, a very potent vit.C from India. I make up about three tsp. in a glass with water to steep for the day and, using a straw, divide this quantity over a day and a bit right after a meal..

With this I use a cup with three full tsp. of turmeric with hemp oil and a full tblsp. plain whey powder in water. I have kept up this for, I think, two years. The pain disappeared soon, came back just a wee bit and vanished for good, so it seems.

I have this from Ayurveda and it is actually meant for diabetes without medication. It was stated that large amount of vit. C would cure the pain. It did. Om

I have a number of patients who suffer with peripheral neuropathy that causes some a minor inconvenience, & in others it is restricting their ability to move around freely & causes great pain & distress. I have found the following helpful to some degree to all of the patients... Some a little relief.. & others remarkable improvement. It is my philosophy that "it takes 2 positives to overcome 1 negative".. & therefore recommend that a medicine (natural) be applied on the 'outside' of the body.. over & around the area of pain & a medicine be taken for the 'inside' of the body...

..First to the outside

A herbal extract of LOBELIA should be applied liberally to the area where there is neuropathy.. Its a watery brown liquid.. If its very cold where u are u can heat the lobelia a little in the microwave & apply it warm... Or apply it cool... Heat loose comfortable sox up in the microwave... & apply them over the now moist feet. Once the liquid has dried rub in a liberal amount of WHITE TIGER BALM.. Massage in well... Warm sox or slippers on.. & your feet will purr with thanks.. This process can be repeated as needed. And 3 times a day (if possible) will keep the pain level managable.

INTERNALLY

As one member mentioned TUMERIC ROOT POWDER is a marvelous pain killer... Bar none! Studies have shown it is a more effective pain killer than any of the non prescription meds we avail at the local pharm. I have checked out the large majority of tumeric caps avail commercially & unfortunatley most have additives that will irritate & upset the stomach.. So... I recommend taking a heaped teaspoon of the tumeric with an equal teaspoon of LECITHIN GRANULES.. Before breakfast & lunch.. & tumeric without the lecithin before dinner (the lecithin is a food that stimulates & gives energy... Not something one needs at night. Despite articles online via google search engines TUMERIC 'DOES NOT' CAUSE GASTRIC UPSETS. Its only when 1 of tumerics active components cucuramin is isolated & added to the mix that the stomach is irritated. Its a FOOD not a drug... & 'DOES NOT' cause any side effects.. One uni study gave 8 grams (approx 10 heaped teaspoons) of tumeric powder a day to 24 patients every day for 18months... Not even 1 had any side effects or gastric upsets. Also there is a dazzling array of other health benefits that the tumeric gifts the taker with. These are alll proved through university studies & can easily be accessed via google.

2. INSIDE.. POTASSIUM BROTH

This broth recipie has been around since shortly after man figured out how to make a fire & cook food. It is the only recipie I have on my medical websites for patients.. For some 'rigidly natural' patients suffering peripheral neuropathy this is the 'only' medicine they would take. Amazingly, they had marked improvement when they drank 3 or 4 coffee mugs full of the liquid daily. You can find it by googling "dr jensens potassium broth. It even taste pretty good. And drunk on a daily basis it will alkalize the body & relieve any painful &/or inflammed areas of the body And shorten the length of any colds or flu episodes that are darkening ones days.

3. SUBLINGUAL B12

Again, I have checked out numbers of commercailly available b12 tablets. Being SUBLINGUAL is essential! Otherwise 90% of the tab. Is destroyed in the stomach. I recommend 2 tabs with breakfast & lunch (4 total) for 7 days.. Then 1 tab x twice daily with breakfast & lunch.. Remember to chew them up.. Don't just throw & swallow. And yep! Its another stimulator... Gives a boost of energy & a bigger appetite.. Don't take after lunch it will affect your sleep. Someone mentioned taking only the methyl form of b12. He's correct in that it is more fully available for use by the body, however, it is very expensive. And, my experience is that the much cheaper & more widely used cyano form of b12 absorbs quite nicely as a sublingual & the liver will convert it across into the methyl form as needed. I did read tonight that I may not mention brand names.. However if anyone is interested u are welcome to email me & I will be happy to give u the brand I recommend. With an open mind, nature DOES heal given the opportunity.

What strength do you recommend with the B-12? Also where do I get the potassium broth?


Neuropathy Remedies

Posted by Bernice (New Orleans ) on 07/31/2013

Hi in need of help for neuropathy. My name is Bernice. I had back surgery in August 18 2008 for a herniated bulging disc, L4, L5, which left me with my right foot numb from the knee down. After a while, my foot came back to life somewhat. It was still numb and would burn, but was bareable. Over a course of five years with a limp I have learned to walk normaly again with exercise. Neurotin and lyrica did not help and I still had some back pain. This past May, I had to undergo another back surgery. After this surgery, my right foot has become worse. I get burning and tingling pains. It is still numb, even more so. My doctor has told me that it will take more time to heal. I'm 51 years old. I would love to know if anyone has any advice and/or remedies to help.

Bernice, a friend of mine had peripheral neuropathy due to chemo treatment. I recommended B-vitamins, but knowing the seriousness of this, I was not willing to take chances. I advised her to buy a very good food-based B-Complex and an additional B-12. She had a very quick recovery (symptoms diminished in one day and resolved within a week or so, with no recurrence throughout chemo). Her neuropathies had just started a week or two before, so I'm sure that helped her heal quickly. The B-complex & B-12 supplements she took were Vitamin Code/Garden of Life. This is a raw, whole food formula with live probiotics and enzymes. Find it at any healthfood store in the US. She took it according to the package directions. The amounts are much less than typical supplements & it's a little pricey, but there is absolutely no doubt that this one was well-absorbed and effective for my friend. Her recovery was nothing short of amazing.

Having had plenty of back problems myself, I learned to be mindful of how mental stress causes me to tense up in my back and hips. Just being aware of this has helped me mentally combat the stress and relax my back. Easier said than done, I know, but I wish you all the best.

Bernice, There are lots of different things people on Earth Clinic have tried... I would personally start with the turmeric and burdock root. They could be taken together. Also, the apple cider vinegar is good for many things, and I notice people use it for neuropathy. Burdock Root helped me with neuropathy a number of years ago. It took a couple of weeks of consistent use to see a difference. I didn't know about turmeric back then or would have used it, too.

Also, peppermint and St. John's Wort are good for the nervous system. You could make a quart of this tea and drink it daily. But I would give it a good month try before deciding it doesn't work. You could put 4 tea bags (2 of each type) into a quart jar and pour boiling water over it. Let steep for 15 minutes. Strain. Sweeten. Drink hot or cold through the day.

Lots of water is important to help the body flush itself of toxins. I would also try Epsom Salt Baths twice a week. (2 cups of the salt per bath.)

I hope you find some relief soon! Please let us know what helps you.

Hi Bill from the Phillipines. I am a newcomer (3 months) to this site. This is my first post. I have terrible peripheral neuropathy. I was told that www.theoriginalhomozon.com would help me. I just went trough a 3 weeks trial of arginine and the other amino acid recommended by Dr. Louis Ignaro on his site... 6000 mgs of argine a day and 1000 mgs of L-Citrulline... I was on this for 3 weeks and it set me bak 1 1/2 years. I can hardly walk and excrutiating pain. The supplements on Homozon.com are not cheap and I would like your opinion. Thank you very much and blessing to you.

p.s. Forgot to mention that I also have hep-c and have tried every protocol including BHT and only made my heart race 100BPM and every protocal for P.N. I have spent about $10,000.00 on supplements and am getting nowwhere and am getting broke as well. Thx again.

EC: Please note, the mentioned website appears to us to be untrustworthy in the extreme.

Hi there, just reading your post and felt I wanted to comment about your periphal neuropathy. My husband also had this, started with the soles of feet and pain/ burning. He was diagnosed with POEMS disease. This is quite rare but maybe a visit to the G.P is needed. Most doctors have never heard of it so maybe read up on it first. His diagnosis took 3 years.

I may have been unclear on the previous post. What I meant to say was I have spent $10,000.00 on supplements from other sources. I was trying to see if Bill from the Philipines knows anything about that site before I get involved. Thx and sorry if I created any confusion. It's sort of a new concept and I am skeptical of anything until it's been proven not just take their word for it...

Try B12 "PATCHES"..... it worked for me and is still working.

Hi Rita--Blackstrap Molasses is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. It is also an excellent source of B vitamins. A nutrition almanac emphasizes taking B vitamins as a whole because if you take just one, you cause a deficiency in the others so if a B-12 patch is being used a TBP of BSM would very beneficial. The B vitamins can also reduce pain.

Binders and fillers of vitamins, supplements and medications cause more trouble than is being recognized. They can cause more pain than the active ingredient is helping. I learned over twenty years ago that I cannot ingest the gelatin capsule without causing problems. Another culprit was in my table salt. That tiny amount used to cause me excruciating sciatica. The flowing/anti-caking agent in the spices are another thing to watch out for. This has been a result of piecemeal learning for over twenty years. I'm just sharing what I have learned, applied and what worked for me.

I will add that I've had multiple head, neck and back injuries from horses, cars and hurried missteps. Since I have using food and spices as my medicine, with better results, even my PCP is impressed and after looking at an MRI, the MD for the head and neck traumas wondered why I was not in so much pain. He had me go to neck specialists questioning whether I should have surgery to no avail. I just wish I had learned what I know now long ago. That's what makes me sad.

Both of my babies were breech but only one was a caesarean. Learning how to eat to avoid pain has helped the bowel difficulties, but I wish I had known this twenty-nine years ago because there is damage that cannot be repaired.
