Treating Peripheral Neuropathy with Natural Homeopathic Medicines

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that arises when the peripheral nerves malfunction or get damaged. One of the leading causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes mellitus, but there can be many other reasons.

Homeopathic Treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy

The homeopathic mode of treatment remains quite effective in managing peripheral neuropathy. The approach to homeopathic treatment for peripheral neuropathy is entirely symptomatic. The symptoms of the patient in a given case of peripheral neuropathy serve as the basis of homeopathic prescription. Every case of peripheral neuropathy needs to be thoroughly investigated to rule out the cause behind it. Every individual case requires a detailed case analysis to find the presenting symptoms unique to them. The homeopathic medicines for treating peripheral neuropathy are very safe to use among people of all age groups. A person should take homeopathic medicines for peripheral neuropathy under the supervision of a homeopathic physician and avoid self – medication.

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

The nervous system in our body is divided into two major divisions – the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system includes the spinal cord and the brain. The peripheral nervous system consists of a network of nerves that lie outside the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system connects the nerves from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body (organs, limbs, and skin). The peripheral nervous system has 43 pairs of motor and sensory nerves. Peripheral nerves are of three types – sensory, motor and autonomic. The primary functions of these nerves are as follow:
Sensory nerves are responsible for transmission of signals like pain, touch, temperature and other sensations to the brain.
Motor nerves are held responsible for control of muscles.
Autonomic nerves are responsible for regulating autonomic functions of the body such as bladder function, digestion, body temperature, and blood pressure.
The peripheral neuropathy can be a mononeuropathy (damage to a single peripheral nerve) or a polyneuropathy (malfunctioning of multiple peripheral nerves at the same time). The symptoms of this disorder depend on the type of peripheral neuropathy.
Sensory neuropathy: The symptoms of sensory neuropathy are numbness, tingling, pricking, pin/needle sensation, hypersensitivity and burning sensation in the hands and feet. The symptoms can spread up the arm and leg.
Motor neuropathy: The symptoms of motor neuropathy include muscle weakness, paralysis, twitching/cramping of muscles, wasting/thinning of muscles, impaired balance, and coordination.
Autonomic neuropathy: The symptoms of autonomic neuropathy include rapid heart rate, bowel/bladder symptoms, diarrhea/constipation, blood pressure changes, increased/decreased sweating and erectile dysfunction in men.

Other reasons for peripheral neuropathy include an injury to nerves, low levels of vitamin B12, infections like shingles, Epstein-Barr, hepatitis C, and autoimmune diseases like Guillain-Barre syndrome, lupus, and necrotizing vasculitis. Excessive alcohol intake, tumors pressing on the nerves, chronic liver/kidney disease, thyroid disorders, certain medications including phenytoin, thalidomide, toxins like arsenic, mercury, inherited disorders like Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease are some other causes of peripheral neuropathy. In some cases, there may be no identifiable cause.

    Dear Sir,

    I live in Indonesia & I have symptoms of peripheral Neuropathy for 1.5 years. I’ve done nerve simulation test & also detailed MRI. Both results are ok.

    I’ve burning feeling in my back & also feet (both sides of feet) & hand numbness while sleeping. Doctor has put me on Gabapin NT 400 based on symptomatic treatment.

    There is improvement in numbness but burning. Continues. I read on your website that Homeopathy offers an excellent long term solution for such problems. Kindly help me out as I’m really fed up with this irritating problem.

  3. Sara Roselle says:

    Can you tell me what type of doctor or practitioner to see for a holistic approach to neuropathy that began several months ago. In 2015 I broke ankle and leg in a fall that bent/compressed my foot for at least 5 minutes before help came. Minor intermittent numbness in two small toes persisted after healing those injuries. Then, 11 months ago both of my feet were badly sunburned during an hour walking in sand at a beach. They were very red, hot, and painful but did not blister. This alternately burning and cold hyper-sensitivity has been expanding in recent months, climbing up to my calves. A back doctor wants to do a MRI. A foot doctor wants to do an MRI. They say insurance won’t let me do both at the same time and each is a specialist who does not address the area of the other. Can you help?

  8. Shirsha Mondal says:

    My grandfather is suffering from peripheral neuropathy from last two years. The symptoms are burning in legs, feet, anus and inside the belly. Numbness in head and left hand is also present. We have applied lots of allopathy medicines. Nothing is working after few days of application. My grandfather has a Spinal injury. According to the MRI report, the abnormally curved spine is the reason for this neuropathy. Doctors are suggesting to operate the spine. Although considering the age of him (76 years) it is not wise to think about operation. Can you please help me in this situation? Which homeopathy medicines will be best for him?

    Will be pleased to hear from you. Eagerly waiting.
