Peripheral Neuropathy

The Ultimate Solution for Peripheral Neuropathy Revealed!

Does this Sound like Your Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms?

A new client called asking me if Homeopathy can help Peripheral Neuropathy. She told me she was just diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy. She said about a year ago, she started noticing her feet would feel numb, as if they had fallen asleep every once in a while. In the last month or so, she started to notice she was feeling the numbness in the feet more often. She said sometimes her feet feel like she has a stocking on her foot when she doesn’t. My client told me 10 years ago, she was diagnosed with Diabetes and has been able to manage it with a low dose of Diabetic medication and diet. I asked her what makes the numbness feel better or worse. She stated her feet feel better when walking barefoot on the cold tile floor. After asking her a few more questions, I selected the Homeopathic Remedy Phosphorus 30c to be taken in a Homeopathic Remedy Solution Bottle with 10 succussions every night at bedtime. I told her if the Phosphorus does not start to improve the stocking feeling, she will also need the Homeopathic Remedy Apis Melifica.

My client reported later in the week that she had noticed the numbness was a little less intense, especially in the morning. I had her continue taking Phosphorus every night at bedtime with 10 succussions.

My client called back two weeks later, stating her numbness improved by about 50%. However, she is noticing that the numbness is starting to become more intense by late afternoon. I had her increase her succussions on Phosphorus Homeopathic Remedy Solution Bottle to 12 succussions and continue taking it every night at bedtime. I reminded my client the best way to address Peripheral Neuropathy is to have a complete health history taken to help select a 6c Homeopathic Remedy for the Diabetes, the primary reason for the Neuropathy.

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral Neuropathy occurs when nerves are damaged or destroyed and can’t send messages from the brain and spinal cord to the nerves of the extremities (arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, and toes). Some sensations you can experience with Peripheral Neuropathy are feet feeling numb, tingling, or burning, which makes it hard for you to tell where the ground is and may cause you to lose your balance or stagger. There are many health conditions that involve damage to the peripheral nervous system, such as Diabetes.

Common Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms:

Most Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms have a gradual onset, such as numbness, prickling, or tingling in the feet or hands, which often spread upward into your legs and arms.

  • You may also have a tight glove or a stocking on the area
  • Pains such as stabbing, sharp, shooting, jabbing, throbbing or burning
  • You may have extreme sensitivity to touch

How Homeopathy Addresses Peripheral Neuropathy

However, no matter what the reason is as to why you are having Peripheral Neuropathy, Homeopathic Remedies can help Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms and pain acutely.
