Peripheral Neuropathy and Neuremedy


Peripheral neuropathy is a condition arising from nerve damage secondary to several causes but it most commonly arises from diabetes mellitus.

Peripheral neuropathy can manifest clinically as sharp pain, burning, numbness, tingling, pins and needles and cramping in both the hands and the feet.

The most important treatment for diabetic neuropathy is strict glucose control to help prevent worsening symptoms of nerve damage in the extremities.

However, treatment for peripheral neuropathy varies depending on the cause but thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency is a common cause. Reversing thiamine deficiency with use of an oral tablet called Neuremedy is often successful to manage and lessen the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy.

Neuremedy is a highly bioactive form of micro-nutrient thiamine that helps to nourish the nerves. It is better known as the “The Neuropathy Vitamin” and can help lessen the effects of peripheral neuropathy.

People can experience dramatic relief in their symptoms within a few weeks of taking Neuremedy but some may take as long as two months to determine if the medication is working for them.

Neuremedy has been used since the early 1960s to provide nutritional management in peripheral neuropathy.

What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a medical condition in which the nerves that travel from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body function improperly. People who suffer from peripheral neuropathy commonly experience burning, tingling, numbness and/or shooting pains to their feet, legs or hands. Their symptoms are usually worse at night. There are over 100 known causes of peripheral neuropathy. A partial list of these causes includes diabetes, thiamine deficiency, alcoholism, trauma, exposure to toxins, autoimmune diseases, and infections. Sometimes no cause can be determined.

Can peripheral neuropathy be successfully treated?

Yes, some forms of peripheral neuropathy may be successfully treated. For example, people suffering from a peripheral neuropathy caused by thiamine deficiency may experience significant relief by increasing their thiamine intake.

What is NeuRemedy™and how does it work?

Adequate blood levels of the micro-nutrient thiamine are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Recent studies have shown that many people suffering from peripheral neuropathy have low plasma levels of this essential micronutrient. They need a more bioactive form of thiamine for their nerves to function properly. This population includes, but is not limited to, people with diabetes. For these people, the specialized formulation in Neuremedy may alleviate their symptoms by delivering a highly bioactive form of the micro-nutrient thiamine to where it is needed, the nerve cells. Neuremedy works by nourishing the nerves.

What about safety and drug interactions?

The active ingredient in NeuRemedy, benfotiamine, has been used since the early 1960’s in Asia and Europe to successfully treat tens of thousands of people suffering from peripheral neuropathy. Realm Labs has finally made it available in America. Benfotiamine has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective. It does not have any known significant adverse effects and can be safely taken with medicines and supplements.

How long after I begin taking NeuRemedy should I experience relief?
Some people experience dramatic relief within a few days of taking NeuRemedy. Some need to take NeuRemedy for as long as two months in order to start to experience relief. Patients who stop taking NeuRemedy often have a return of their original symptoms. Unfortunately, NeuRemedy does not reduce the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy for everyone. Ask your doctor if NeuRemedy is right for you.

What is the proper way to take NeuRemedy?

The proper dosage of NeuRemedy is one or two capsules once or twice a day with or without meals as directed by your physician.

Does my insurance company pay for NeuRemedy?

In general, health insurance does not pay for the cost of medical foods. However, it is best to check with your insurance company to be certain.
