Alternative Medicine/neuropathy


78 yr. old female.  Not on any meds.  Have lbbb and slight heart vavle leaks.    Have numbness in feet, plus  lots of cramping in feet and legs especially in bed at night. Little sharp stabbing pains at random throughout the body. Not been diagnosed but have read up on peripheal neuropathy.  Looked at meds for it but too many side effects.  Minor thyroid problems, had chicken pox and sometimes sciatic nerve problem.  
Is there any way I can reverse these feelings without meds or any thing taken by mouth?  Like exercise or such?  I understand it can affect hands and such as well.

Hello Pat:
Numbness in the feet can be from a number of problems including, but not limited to, diabetic neuropathy, stenosis and sciatica either from muscle spasm of the gluteal and pyriformus muscle and degenerative joint disease. Consider being evaluated for diabetes. An x-ray and/or CT scan will reveal whether or not you have central stenosis (a condition where the spinal cord and or peripheral nerves are compressed) that can result in numbness in the feet and some of your other symptoms. The treatment, and answer to your question therefore, depends upon the cause or causes.

However consider the following available at:

Boswellia Serratia: 1, 2x/day
Krill Oil 2, 2x/day
Mag Chelate: 1, 2x/day
blood sugar balance: 1, 2x/day

Additional nutritional and dietary suggestions should be based upon a formal intake. I am happy to provide a distance consultation to you. If interested please call: 914-242-8844 (Ext. 1)

Hope this helps,
