Home Remedies for Neuropathy (nerve pain)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Take 600-800mg of alpha-lipoic acid supplements daily, unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider. Known for its antioxidant properties, it may relieve neuropathy symptoms by protecting nerves.

Capsaicin Cream

Apply a capsaicin 0.075% cream to the affected area 3-4 times a day. It can provide temporary relief from nerve pain by desensitizing nerve endings. May cause initial burning sensation.

Vitamin B-12

Take a daily supplement of at least 2.4mcg of Vitamin B-12, or eat foods rich in B-12 like fish and dairy. B-12 is crucial for nerve function and can alleviate some neuropathic symptoms.

Acupuncture

Book sessions with certified acupuncture practitioners. Acupuncture may stimulate the body's natural painkillers and improve blood flow, potentially relieving nerve pain.

Magnesium

Take 300-400mg of magnesium supplements per day, as directed. Magnesium is essential for nerve and muscle function and may relieve muscle spasms often associated with neuropathy.

Warm Bath

Soak in a warm bath with 2 cups of Epsom salt for about 15-20 minutes. The warm water improves circulation and the Epsom salt, rich in magnesium, may relieve muscle tension.

Turmeric

Incorporate 1-2 teaspoons of turmeric powder in your daily meals or take 500mg curcumin supplements. Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties may help relieve nerve pain.

Fish Oil

Take 1,000-1,200mg fish oil supplements daily. Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation, which is often linked to nerve pain.

Essential Oils

Use 5-10 drops of lavender or peppermint essential oil diluted in 1 oz of carrier oil for massaging affected areas. These oils have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

CBD Oil

Apply CBD oil topically or consume as per manufacturer

Physical Exercise

Engage in 20-30 minutes of low-impact exercise like walking or swimming, at least 3 times a week. Exercise can improve blood flow and oxygen to nerves, potentially relieving pain.

Massage

Receive massages from a qualified therapist using gentle strokes to improve blood circulation. Increased blood flow may help manage neuropathic pain.

Mindfulness Meditation

Practice 10-20 minutes of mindfulness meditation daily. Mindfulness may alter pain perception and improve mood, potentially aiding in pain management.

Take 1-2g of skullcap herb supplements daily. Skullcap is traditionally used to calm the nervous system, which may help relieve nerve pain.

Corydalis Yanhusuo

Take 10-15 drops of Corydalis Yanhusuo tincture as directed. This traditional Chinese herb may activate pathways in the brain to relieve pain.
