This is one of those areas where one has to be very careful, whether treating yourself, or someone else, or just making a suggestion. My neuropathy was making me even consider suicide for several months. However, I read about Turmeric, and that it might help, so I tried it. Now, a couple years later, I still use about 1/8 tspn in a glass of warm water whenever I feel the neuropathy coming on. Right now, I have not used any since Christmas. The danger, though, is that the Turmeric has much the same blood thinner effect as warfarin. One possibility of the success is that the Turmeric helps the blood get through the myelin sheath around the nerve, thus bring some healing to the damaged sheath or nerve molecules. I was having neuropathy all over my body, from toe to pate. The worst was in my peritoneal area, giving me a complete change of feeling in my hips, from itch to wild burn as my dystrophies progressed. I pray this relief from Neuropathy holds.
