Hey Rubey,

The information you asked for is all around this site but here's some supplements you may want to consider. The first 5 are a must I would say.

NERVE HEALING SUPPLEMENTS:

Vitamin B1; thiamine but best to take Benfotiamine the fat soluble form as you can store it in your liver. B vitamins are water soluble so pass out of our bodies .This together with
Vitamin B12 are the most important supplements. I take 1000ug of methylcobalamin a day.

A quality broad spectrum multi B Vitamin. Don't overdo B6
B Complex 50 ~ 100 mg
Vitamin D3 1000 ~ 5000 IU
Magnesium 400 ~ 600 mg
Omega - 3 (EPA DHA) from Algae Oil or Fish Oil 1000 ~ 2000 mg a day
Eat milled flax seed and chia seed for additional omega 3.
Turmeric 500 mg
Alpha lipoic acid 600 ~ 1200 mg
CoQ-10 100mg




Other supplements you may want to consider

Feverfew 425 mg caps
Valerian Root 300 ~ 600 mg
Skullcap 425 mg caps

3410 days sober

It's getting cold, and the joints are getting a little stiffer in the mornings, but life is good!

Hope all is well from wherever you are!

Ice out....

Sounds good enough Ice!


I'm cheating a couple of hours and am now at day 3100. Really had a rough year (who hasn't really?), but we are still breathing AND still sober, so not all bad.

3443 days sober

Yes, I am a couple days late. I am surprised I was not harassed by the "sober" police....LOL

Anyway, it's almost drywall time and I will have a home gym in a couple weeks!

Maybe I will finally get to the goal of "running" again.

Thanks for that post On a freeway and thanks to all who have created and keep this page going for so long. It is so helpful. I know itís a long road to recovery but I am curious with your personal experiences, did the progression of the disease stop once you stopped drinking? And if so, about how long did it take for that to happen? Thanks for any feedback.

Mr. t, I am sorry for what you are having to endure. I am surprised they didnít see anything with the endo given the severe stomach pain. Good news that some of the symptoms have subsided. There is always hope. So many people have achieved good results through diet. Keep searching. I belong to a Facebook group (peripheral neuropathy success stories!) lots of great information there for diet, pain relief and research going on for this dreadful disease. Wish you all the best. Keep us posted.
