Neuragen for Natural Relief of Neuropathy Pain

Neuragen PN is a homeopathic treatment registered with the United States FDA as a treatment for pain caused by diabetic neuropathy. A study conducted by Dr. Li Li of  the Department of Kinesiology at Louisiana State University found that this combination of six homeopathic remedies offered reliable relief for the pain of neuropathy, usually within as little as 30 minutes.

Neuragen PN is a mixture of six homeopathic remedies:

  • Club moss
  • Phosphorus
  • Poison Ivy
  • Rye ergot
  • St. John's wort and
  • Wolfbane

These are all natural substances that historically have been used to treat emotional disturbances and chronic pain. In homeopathy, only a minute amount of the substance is given to the patient, the homeopathic remedy having only the "memory" of the original substance greatly reduced in water. In this remedy, there is only 0.0000000001% of each herbal ingredient in the remedy itself. The herbs are diluted with 10 parts of water 12 times in the process of making the medication.

Scientists are naturally skeptical of homeopathic remedies, but the bottom line from this and a growing number of studies is that they work. In the Louisiana State study, 93 per cent of sufferers of neuropathic pain of any origin and 94 per cent of diabetics who had peripheral neuropathy reported pain relief in 30 minutes or less.

The researchers also gave a control group a placebo treatment--water, without the addition of 0.0000000001% of each of the herbal ingredients. About 10 per cent of participants in the placebo group also reported pain relief, although this could be due to the normal ebb and flow in the severity of neuropathic pain.

The great thing about Neuragen PN is there is no downside. It has no side effects. It does not interfere with any prescribed medications. It does not lower blood sugars or raise them. It simply relieves pain, and relieves pain better than most medications.
