    • hey doc,
      my name is Ricky & i am 59 yrs old. 21 years ago i was in an airplane crash, my airplane. I am a licensed pilot & what happened to me 21 years ago i should have died on impact alone along with a big ole fireball, that’s what usually happens every time you fly an airplane into the ground at 220 mph, they blow up & you die, end of story. well i hit the ground almost perpendicular, yeah tell me about it. well a second or two before i hit i closed my eyes thought of my daughter & bam! i hit the ground! No explosion, but most of all
      No loss of consciousness ! i was still alive but i knew my legs were a mess. airlifted to hospital, two surgeons wanted to amputate both legs one said he could save them. both tib fibs were broken, compound fracture at right right ankle along with the aviator fracture on my right foot. both knees were as the doc said “pretty much disintegrated” over the next 3 years & 8 operations on my legs i was as good as i was gonna get from the doc & that was ok. for the next 2o years i have been on narcotics, that is a rough road for anyone to go down. but when the whole world changed there was no way i was going into my pain doc. this pandemic has scared the hell out of me so i have been narcotic free for the last year. wow! talk about feeling like rip van winkle. but years ago i was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic. now of course i started to feel the neuropathy setting in my left foot & hand. i started taking r-alpha lipoic acid & the neuropathy in my left foot & hand has disappeared. i stii have some very bad flare ups that keep me up all night, not near as many but i still get them & it can get pretty bad pain wise. so Doc my question to you is: is there something homeopathic available that might help me get thru the flare ups? because i am not getting any younger & i really enjoy being off of the narcotics!
      most respectfully yours
