Default Help for polyperipheral neurology without drugs or side effects

Hi, I am brand new to this thread. I am reading about so many people taking so many medication‘s for neuropathy and I am non-diabetic by the way. I develop this about 15 years ago, and was given several different prescriptions to try, including Neurontin, Gabapentin and Lyrica to name a few. They also put me on another anti-depressant. I was a mess. I couldn’t think straight I was suicidal and I sat alone in my home and didn’t want contact with anyone. Finally, I got on my knees, and asked God for some help. I weaned myself off of six medicines, slowly and carefully. I went into research for more natural help with my pain. All I could do was sit and cry it was so painful. I went nowhere I did nothing. Finally, someone told me about CBD oil. I did a lot of research and found an excellent company online that has been phenomenal to work with. Their product is quality made and quality checked. They even have a program where they reduce the cost for military and those with medical problems, reducing it 60% of cost. There is no THC in it so there is no high, and I take 300 to 400 mg twice a day, and it has made my life bearable. I have no side effects, no tiredness or brain fog. My pain has reduced so much that I now can go places and do things again. I am no longer depressed and am happy again. No, the pain is not completely gone, but it is pain that I can definitely live with.

Good that you have relief with CBD, I went t hat route a little with ointments but so costly and not relief.

What works for me is Grape Seed Extract, Inosine and Sphingolin taken internally, and very affordable.

Externally, I use Topricin Homeopathic Lotions and some other topicals.

No diabetes here either, damage from Hip Replacement, dead nerves.

Welcome and thank you.

Default CBD and grape seed extract

I probably should have mentioned that I do take the CBD oil softgels , twice a day, either 1-100mg and 1-200 mg or 2-200 mg. I also use a topical CBD of the same brand at night if still some pain for sleeping. Also, as I said, the company I go through offers 60% off for military, ex military and people with chronic conditions. It has also helped greatly with my severe acid reflux.
As for the grape seed extract, I had just started looking into that and see that also helps with other problems. I may start that as a regiment and see if that helps more. I have found that it is well worth the money to feel so much more normal again and to be able to live life, with limitations of course, but life. I appreciate this forum and people helping with ideas. Not everything will work for everyone I’m sure, but my heart goes out to these dear people that are taking all these medicines and destroying themselves in the process. I have been there and don’t ever want to go back again.

Also, may I ask what brand supplements ( grape seed extract, etc) you buy and how much you use. I don’t know if that is allowed on this site, but would be happy to find out if you can tell me. The brand I was looking at for grape seed extract is pretty expensive. I am happy to try anything that is natural and has no side effects. Thank you for your response to mine suggestion.
Have a wonderful day my friend

Hi, I've used many brands over the long haul, but seem to go back to Olympian Labs and take 200mg usually once daily. One has to take enough for their body weight...If you are very thin, look at 100mg caps and take 1 or 2 daily. I buy mostly from iherb on line and prices are good in my budget. Now know, if you take a pharma blood thinner, can't take both. Grape Seed Ex cleans and thins the blood.

Glad the CBD is working and you can get the special pricing.

I've also mentioned many times that Inosine and Sphingolin have done so much with the burn/tingle of nerve damage I live with. No burn anymore but my right side of thigh from knee up are numb from surgery .
