Neuropathy Supplement: Physician formulated

Take your life back from Neuropathic Pain

This formulation came from treating a fellow physician who was afraid of surgical intervention for his tarsal tunnel syndrome and neuropathy.  Medications such as neurontin, lyrica causes him to tire throughout the day and didn't like that feeling, so the search went on for natural supplements.      Following personal and patient trials, the formulation was finalized to allow for most effective aid in nerve nutrition, NeuRx was born.

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition in which the nerves of the feet and/or legs do not function properly. Common symptoms include tingling, numbness, sharp pains and/or burning pains to the affected parts of the body. There are over one hundred known causes of peripheral neuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy treatment varies depending on its cause. Thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency is a well known cause of peripheral neuropathy. Diabetics and non-diabetics alike may be thiamine deficient. If you have tingling, numbness, sharp pains and/or burning pains to the feet, legs and/or hands you may be thiamine deficient. Reversing thiamine deficiency is a well known and often highly successful way to nutritionally manage peripheral neuropathy.

NeuRx is physician formulated and has been used in my practice for diabetic neuropathy as well as other polyneuropathies and post nerve surgery patients. 

In addition to the fat soluble thiamine derivative listed above, NeurRx has B12, DHEA and Alpha Lipoic Acid to strengthen the effects and the results have been Wonderful with copy cats abound on the internet now.

Meant to be taken twice a day. 

It's been used in my office with great results, so great that I'll offer your money back if you are not satisfied as with all my products.

This is a natural neuropathy supplement and not meant to take the place of medications by your physician. 

  Always seek professional medical advice for your condition.



Nutritional supplements for nerve health


DHEA is a hormone that is naturally made by the human body. It can be made in the laboratory from chemicals found in wild yam and soy. However, the human body cannot make DHEA from these chemicals, so simply eating wild yam or soy will not increase DHEA levels. Don’t be misled by wild yam and soy products labeled as “natural DHEA.”

DHEA is used for slowing or reversing aging, improving thinking skills in older people, and slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s disease.

Athletes and other people use DHEA to increase muscle mass, strength, and energy. But DHEA use is banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

DHEA is also used by men for erectile dysfunction (ED), and by healthy women and women who have low levels of certain hormones to improve well-being and sexuality.

Some people try DHEA to treat systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), weak bones (osteoporosis), multiple sclerosis (MS), low levels of steroid hormones (Addison’s disease), depressionschizophreniachronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and to slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease. It is also used for preventing heart disease,breast cancerdiabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

DHEA is used for weight loss, for decreasing the symptoms of menopause, and for boosting the immune system.

People with HIV sometimes use DHEA to ease depression and fatigue.

Women who have passed menopause sometimes use DHEA inside the vagina for strengthening the walls of the vagina and for increasing bone mineral density.

Like many dietary supplements, DHEA has some quality control problems. Some products labeled to contain DHEA have been found to contain no DHEA at all, while others contained more than the labeled amount.

DHEA is being investigated and may eventually be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a prescription drug for treating systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and improving bone mineral density in women with lupus who are taking steroid drugs for treatment. The FDA is still studying the pharmaceutical company’s application for approval.

How does it work?

DHEA is a “parent hormone” produced by the adrenal glands near the kidneys and in the liver. In men, DHEA is also secreted by the testes. It is changed in the body to a hormone called androstenedione. Androstenedione is then changed into the major male and female hormones.

DHEA levels seem to go down as people get older. DHEA levels also seem to be lower in people with certain conditions like depression. Some researchers think that replacing DHEA with supplements might prevent some diseases and conditions.  source: WEBMD

Alpha Lipoic Acid

 Alpha lipoic acid another key component of our supplement that has great benefits in helping patients soothe the symptoms of polyneuropathy.  Alpha Lipoic acid has been shown to improve sugar control.

Neuropathy is a common and well-known complication of chronic hyperglycemia due to diabetes mellitus. Symptoms of this late complication include loss of sensation, vibration sense, temperature sensation and muscle weakness.

 The antioxidant properties of alpha-lipoic acid have long been known and the potential benefit of the modality in a wide array of diabetic complications is clear. Despite the positive results researchers have observed with alpha-lipoic acid’s effect on the symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy, robust evidence showcasing its ability to reverse progression of complications is not yet available. More long-term studies may help gauge the efficacy of the drug, possibly as a supplement to anti-diabetes medication.

Lifestyle modification is another critical factor that patients cannot ignore. Many foods such as broccoli and spinach contain small amounts of alpha-lipoic acid and other antioxidants that patients can easily add to a daily diet. We advise regular monitoring for patients taking 600 mg oral alpha-lipoic acid daily and one should responsibly document their condition. Observe patients for side effects, including episodes of hypoglycemia. Patients should maintain vigilant blood sugar control. With these cautions in mind, alpha-lipoic acid can be a very useful and safe option in the management of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

Can peripheral neuropathy be prevented?

Some of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy are preventable or treatable to some degree. Diabetic neuropathy for instance, can be prevented with proper glucose control. Neuropathy due to vitamin B12 deficiency can be reversed with vitamin B12 supplementation.

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin needed for normal nerve cell activity. It acts with folic acid and vitamin B6 to control homocysteine levels. An excess of homocysteine is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and potentially other diseases such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease.
