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
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.
For neuropathy and Inflammation:
Use 1/4 gram coconut oil and 1/2 gram honey bee wax. Melt wax add other ingredient after wax has melted. It will become cream it's very good for nerve. and muscle pain and also on cracked skin. You can add essential oil for aroma.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 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...

My ex had severe neuropathy and many more problems. He decided to go on his diet as he found out that he was a celiac at age 55 but didn't bother to follow the diet. :) He finally tried his gluten free diet at 61 and after just two days he felt much better. Now three years later he is 99% better. Doesn't have acid reflux, brain fog, out of breath, tired, pain in feet and legs.
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.
The first natural product/supplement that I tried for peripheral neuropathy (caused by oxaliplatin in chemotherapy) was grapeseed oil and then grapeseed extract in a caplet form with excellent results that allowed me to reduce the amount of hydro morph contin that I was taking by about 40%.
I have told others about it and most that tried the liquid form had stomach upset from it.
I use 50-100 mg three times per day.

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'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.
