Topical Magnesium Lotion for Feet

Posted by Debbie @dbeshears1, Jun 10 7:01am

Yesterday I had an Integrative Medicine doctor encourage me to try rubbing a topical Magnesium ointment on feet, saying she’s heard it’s an anecdotal remedy for neuropathy feet, especially if they feel like you’re walking on gel pads or bubble wrap and may feel wobbly for balance (not pain). I’m never opposed to trying anything at reasonable costs if it seems to have merit, but while I’m googling where to find it, I thought I’d throw it out to this group and see if anyone has tried it and what results they think they got from it? Thank you 🙂

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Neuropathy group.

Hi Debbie, I have used Life-Flo Magnesium lotion and like it a lot. It doesn't feel as greasy as some lotions. I would stay away from the magnesium spray lotions though. I tried one from Life-Flo a few years ago for ease of application and really thought it was sticky and didn't work as well as the lotion.

Thanks John, useful as always! Re: sprays vs lotions, I have found the same with Blu Emu that I use occasionally for muscle aches on body; lotions are less sticky and penetrate much better, and worth having to wash your hands after applying! I will try the magnesium for feet; I prefer the “walking on bubble wrap” feeling over “walking on glass”, but want to manage balance as best as possible.

@dbeshears1, @johnbishop. and all….John, I read your discussion re the Life Flo magnesium lotion and the positive results.
I immediately ordered a bottle and, used it tonight matter of fact as I've been having a bit more pain and discomfort. I really like this lotion. One of my favs, I think. I still like my frankincense and myrrh, and 1:1 MM lotion, but this is different and better for what I needed tonight.

Thanks for the info, as always. I agree with you.
Blessings. Elizabeth

Where do you buy these two lotions? I have tried everything else on the planet, but this sounds promising.
Thanks, Skeleton

I buy the magnesium lotion at Amazon but you may be able to purchase it locally at a drug store or health market.

Elizabeth, @johnbishop @skeleton , my Life-Flo Mag lotion arrived 2 days ago and I was very pleased with the comfort it provided – thanks so much! I recall trying Frankincense and Myrrh 5 yrs ago; I think my husband might have bought it from a snake oil sales place. It was hard as a rock, and just impractical to easily run into the skin, so I ended up tossing it. I’m glad you found an easier supplier Elizabeth!

Thanks for sharing Elizabeth. I will order today. I love this website. You are all so amazing. I have learned a lot about damaged nerves. I will have been battling this journey of pain for 5 years in July and it might not ever go away, but I have you people to share it with. 💕❤️🙏🌹

One sight I went to was $46. another $12.What is a fair price?

The Life Flo I bought from Amazon was $11.99 for an 8oz bottle. I could have bought a 3 pack for a cheaper cost per ounce, but wanted to try it first. It looks like 8oz can last awhile for me, so the quantity is good. I’ve liked the benefits and am grateful for the recommendations of this group!
