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. From a huge number of homeopathic medicines for peripheral neuropathy, some of the majorly indicated homeopathic medicines for symptomatic treatment include Kali Phos, Arsenic Album, Picric Acid, Oxalic Acid, Hypericum, Causticum and Plumbum Met.

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.

Homeopathic Medicines for Peripheral Neuropathy

Apart from the above, a tingling sensation in the fingers is also an indicating feature to use Arsenic Album.

Plumbum Met offers a natural cure for peripheral neuropathy in which the patient experiences wasting or thinning of the muscles of the limbs. Paralysis of limbs is also treated well with this medicine.

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.

    Hello, my name is Vicki Cameron. I have peripheral neuropathy in both my feet. I had had covid and was on a ventilator for 28 days. My heart stopped twice and some other organs failed. I was in three different hospitals for treatment. It was the most horrible experience of my life. I was in one or another hospital for 3 months. They kept calling me a miracle. I have some lingering problems, not to many thank God. I was laying in bed and my feet felt fine and just all of a sudden the started felling as in rope was tying up just my toes. It was and is an awful feeling. I had to learn to walk again but I was terrified to try to walk with my feet the way they were but they kept pushing me and I’m so grateful they did. I can walk some but not for very long. I have had braces on top of braces and insoles that just made it so much worse, I take Oxycodone for back problems and it is the only thing that helps me through my day. I’m sorry I have just gone on and on , but I wanted you to understand the progression of my pain. It is sharp, stabbing, burning, and nothing helps. I want to try something homeopathic and I saw your product. I hope you will let me know if you can help me . I’m running out of hope. Thank you so much for listening and I will pray you can help me.

  6. To briefly summarize: my husband 67 years old and several years ago was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and RA. Through traditional medicine and supplements I have researched, we have brought his RA factor down to 14 and guess we consider him in “remission”. For the Hashimoto’s, his antibody level is still slightly elevated. For 18 or so months, he has had slight foot and toe numbness and tingling with my local PA misdiagnosing it as plantar fasciitis. Since late August/early September it has gotten worse and his recent nerve conduction test shows mild-moderate peripheral neuropathy and carpal/cubital tunnel in my hands and elbows. He takes mild doses of Gabapentin 3-4 times daily and have ceased my multivitamin use as it may have caused his B6 plasma level to be 69 .1 vs the normal range of 2-21. So, we wonder about B 6 toxicity as his B 12 count is in the normal range. He has been doing daily soak and home treatment methods yet my large toes and feet are now having sharp, pain spikes that last a few seconds each but with more frequency. Thank you,

  7. M. Kelly Posiviata says:

    I have peripheral neuropathy, diagnosed by a neurosurgeon. I had a spinal fusion and lower spinal decompression in May, hoping the decompression would alleviate the very compressed nerves which I guess run to my legs and feet. My condition has moved up the back of my legs, and my buttocks are pretty numb!! I do not want to take drugs, and am looking for some homeopathic substances to relieve the numbness and tingling, and muscle tone loss!!! I do not have diabetes or thyroid issues, according to my Kaiser doctors.

  8. Are homeopathic medicines are costlier on peripheral neuropathy and how long these medicines to be taken to cure or to get the relief.

  9. thecodecaffe123 says:

    Thanks for the information and more about Homeopathy has been used to treat allergies, atopic dermatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and irritable bowel syndrome in certain patients.
    Only global can provide you with additional information about homeopathy, its uses, benefits, side effects, and important ingredients.

  10. Danielle Floyd says:

    My daddy has been diagnosed with neuropathy. Typically, a very active person, this diagnosis has all but crippled him. He states that his feet feel asleep like pins are pricking them over and over again. He won’t even hold my newborn son, his grandson, for fear that he will fall. His doctor has provided him with an elective surgery option, but the out-of-pocket expense is mindblowing and there’s only a small percent chance that the surgery will improve his condition.

    We are desperate. After reading this article, the Picric Acid or Oxalic Acid sound applicable. However, I have no idea how to obtain or what dosage to administer. Any and all guidance would be so appreciated. Thank you so much for your willingness to share your knowledge and expertise with those in our situation.
