Top 10 Homeopathic Remedies for Numbness in Feet

Numbness in feet can be occasional, momentary and short-lived in many cases eg, that arise simply from wearing shoes that are too tight, sitting on the feet or sitting cross legs for too long. While persistent and progressive numbness can arise from a number of medical conditions, it is usually the result of damage, irritation or compression of a nerve that supplies the feet. It can also result from conditions that affect the blood vessels supplying blood to the foot. Homeopathic medicines for numbness in feet help treat the condition from the root for long-term relief.        homeopathic medicines for numbness in feet
