    I am going on 59 years old and I have numbness in my feet and toes. I read that you mentioned that it could be from frostbite. I took skiing lessons when I was younger and I did have a little frostbite in my feet when the ski instructor had us stay out longer than usual in our lesson Do you think that this could have caught up with me now? I have tried everything to get my feet sensation back. Do you have any treatment or suggestions?

    Dr Sharma
    I am 83 and have practiced Chiropractic and Naturopathy for 40 years before i retired 20 years ago, my problem for the last two years is from the knee down with numbness, tingling, crawling sensations, but above all stiffening of ankles when sitting, driving, or after lying down for a while, also at times waking in the morning, At this point apart from this condition and severe hearing loss i consider myself fit and healthy,(I am still an ardent Snow Skier)
    unfortunately i have a long history of injuries, at age 20 a motor cycle accident at 120 mph resulted in being paralised from the waist down two yrs later, the then Hospital treatment was full body plaster and traction for eight month, i declined and thought out a chiropractor my mother trained with, resulting in my training, Plus two other major accidents, one involving body damage at T5-6 the other T12 SP FRACTURE plus several cervicle injuries. Also i have suffered from cramping all my life, needles to say with my back ground i have tried every mode of treatment and mostly manage to keep it under control. At the moment i live in Belize and one of my neighbours with severe Spinal Stenosis that i helped to rehabilitate was also taking HECLA LAVA 30c and calc flour to dissolve bone build up for three month with good results. Consequently given my spinal injuries i have not been without pain in Lumbar Sacral area at times, I hope you can make some sense of all this and are able to advise me.
    look forward to your response.

    I am 85 years old and have a chronic swollen and numbness of both feet condition for last five years. The main problem is I can’t move feet freely and keep balance while walking. Because of my age and thinking it is not a life threatening condition, I did not go for allopathic treatment requiring various tests and taking drugs with side effects. Kindly advise about any homeopathic remedy for my condition. There are no pain or other symptoms apart from slowly increasing swelling and numbness over the years.
