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

Kali Phos – Homeopathic Medicine for Numbness in Hands and Feet

Kali Phos is an effective, natural homeopathic medicine for numbness in hands and feet in cases of peripheral neuropathy. Kali Phos also helps in treating prickling sensation in hands and feet. Along with this a general fatigue or weakness is also present. A person needing Kali Phos tends to have a nervous, sensitive and irritable nature. Kali Phos is also indicated for cases of muscle weakness and paralysis.

Arsenic Album – Homeopathic Remedy for Burning Sensation in Hands/ Feet in Peripheral Neuropathy

Homeopathic medicine Arsenic Album is useful for treating burning sensation in the hands and feet in cases of peripheral neuropathy. The burning sensation may extend to arms and legs. Arsenic Album is also helpful for weakness and heaviness in the limbs in cases of peripheral neuropathy. Apart from the above, a tingling sensation in the fingers is also an indicating feature to use Arsenic Album.

Picric Acid – Natural Homeopathic Medicine for Pin-needle Sensation in Hand/Feet

Picric Acid is a natural homeopathic remedy used to treat a pin-needle like sensation in the hands or feet in cases of peripheral neuropathy. This sensation may be present in legs and arms. A weak, tired feeling in the limbs is also present. Exertion tends to make the complaint worse, and the limbs may get cold.

Oxalic Acid – Natural Homeopathic Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy Causing Numbness and Tingling in Limbs

Use of natural medicine Oxalic Acid is considered in cases of peripheral neuropathy where there is numbness and tingling in the limbs. Sharp and excruciating pains in the limbs also point towards the use of this medicine.

Hypericum – Effective Homeopathic Medicine for Peripheral Neuropathy Due to Nerve Injury

Hypericum is a natural medicine prepared from the fresh plant named Hypericum Perforatum or St. John’s Wort. The natural order of this plant is Hypericaceae. The main indicating features to use Hypericum are numbness, tingling in hands or feet attended with burning pains. A crawling sensation may also be present in the hands and feet in some cases.

Causticum – Effective Homeopathic Remedy for Muscle Weakness in Peripheral Neuropathy

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.

    • marie Colette says:

      Please let me know if it is possible and if you have other suggestions. I will send your contact to him, depending on your answer. Thanks

  5. Kennitha Webb says:

    Hi, I am a 66 year old, healthy woman. I took some medication that I had a severe reaction to, and I now have peripheral neuropathy. I am struggling with the pain, clumsiness, weakness, but also a feeling of cold and wet feet. I desperately need help. What would you prescribe for my problems?

  6. Michelle Carlino says:

    Hi. My father is 88 years old. He has been a diabetic for 40 years. He now takes ozempic weekly. He has neuropathy in his feet and has limited feeling when he stands or walks. he can feel when I massage them.
    Can you recommend a remedy that would be helpful for him .
    thank you very much

  7. My neuropathy developed when I withdrew from SSRI medications 6 years ago. My digestion was so impaired after the withdrawal that after three years I was hospitalized and placed on a feeding tube which saved my life. I was tested for every possible disorder and disease to find the cause of my neuropathy and none could be found. The neurologist assumed it was caused by severe malnourishment. Since my hospitalization my digestion has greatly improved and I have put on weight. The neuropathy is improving but I’m still affected from the shoulders down. I have profound numbness, pins and needles, pain in my joints, and the worst symptom is the muscle cramping upon standing or walking which decreases my mobility greatly. I used to be a distance runner, full time bike commuter and now struggle to to do basic tasks. I eat a clean healthy diet, get plenty of rest, exercise as much as tolerable and take tumeric, and alpha Lipoic acid for some relief. What homeopathic remedy would help me?

    • Cuprum Metallicum 200c helped my cramping in my legs. It got completely rid of it. Tarentula 200c helped my burning in my feet for a good while but quit working. Tried a stronger dosage but it didn’t work. And anyone with restless legs should try Zincum Metallicum 200c. Fixed mine completely.

      Hi I’m writing on behalf of my husband who has been suffering with something the traditional drs cannot solve. Some of the symptoms are extreme fatigue and weakness, neuropathic pain in limbs and chest, mental fogginess, we think it is an autoimmune response from a virus. But, at this point he has seen drs for 2 years and undergone extensive testing and still no answers. He is 60 yrs old.

    • Marina Gottlieb Sarles says:

      Hi Dr Sharma and Dr Drishti
      I would love some homeopathic help for my neuropathy. I have numbness at the bottom of my feet and burning and tingling in my calves mostly on the left side but it can alternate to the right as well. I’m 67 years old, no diabetes and live a pretty healthy but this has become a real irritant to me. How do we proceed?

  15. E. Ann Collom says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma: I am writing on behalf of my husband. He is 84 years old. Two years ago he was given a prescription for Levaquin to treat a minor UTI. He took two pills (only) and could not walk. He has suffered greatly since, although he has not ruptured a tendon. His achilles tendons are enlarged and hard, he has peripheral neuropathy, his leg muscles have atrophied, balance is poor, walking is a chore – he just has no strength in his legs. Prior to taking the levaquin he was active and functional. He has other symptoms of toxicity as well. Doctors absolutely deny any responsibility, and say there is no treatment. Nevertheless I have scoured the internet for something that will help him walk again. He seems to be stabilized at this point, but the damage caused by this horrible drug continues to do its damage. Can homeopathy help him?
    Thank you for any help you can give.

  16. CAROL COLE says:

    Hello Dr. Sharma,

    1. I have diabetes.
    2. I HAD gout, but was treated with NAET.
    3. My large left toe has had shooting sharp continuous pains for a whole day. My very uneducated guess is that maybe it is neuropathy……..which led my very uneducated mind to your suggestion of Picric Acid homeopathic remedy.
    4. I am almost 78 years old and female.
    ANY ADVICE will be gratefully appreciated, Dr. Sharma.

    Thank you, Sir,

    Hi my husband has had kidney disease since 2010. He’s been on dialysis since then. He has neuropathy in one foot that has gotten worse over time. We’ve tried so many medicines and nothing helps. He can’t sit still and says it’s a stabbing sometime pricking pain and agitation makes him move constantly. Causes anxiety. Can you help at all? He had to be careful what he takes because of dialysis. Thank you. He is 61.

    • I came to your website because homeopathy has been very helpful to me and I want to be able to help my friend whose peripheral neuropathy is escalating in terms of pain. He is not ready to give up smoking, though he knows he should. He has been in the care of a neurologist and is taking pharmaceuticals with little success. The most relief he gets is when he soaks his feet in ice water. ‘ I referrred him to Bastyr Naturopathic University for a work-up. I actually had in mind a homeopathic work-up, but they recommended herbal and nutritional remedies without mentioning homeopathy. What was recommended is overwhelming to him in terms of the numbers of times a day and numbers of medicines. Also, what they recommended for his pain did not relieve it. Instead, he describes a very unpleasant and weird physical response that he experienced in his head.

      My personal experience of pain and homeopathy is that when it is the right remedy, my pain is relieved. So I came looking for relief for him. Can you please describe how you address problems of people who seek your help through this website? I have two other people who also might benefit. Thank You

      How do you work with people who come to your website.
