My wife is suffering with some pretty bad nerve pain with our new treatment. We are holding off until she can heal some.

Does anyone know of any good supplements specifically for healing nerve tissue? It seems that as the bacteria is killed, it is aggravating the nerves in particular. Way more than it has before. That is the theory anyway.

She already takes Turmeric, Ginger, Multivitamin, and Magnesium.

Just looking for something to accelerate the healing process.

Thank you.

Dan

Daily intake of hemp seed oil or hemp seed protein. This has somehow staved off my headaches, vertigo, and helped TONS with nerve issues from the plant source EFA's, blows fish oil out of the water. It is truly a healing plant (and illegal to grow in the USA hardy har har ignorant backwards country).

Specifically, 4 tablespoons of this product from this company (because I can vouch for its purity and manufacturing processes) daily for months and the body will be in prime condition to repair/heal.

I don't take vitamins or amino acids or any supplements anymore because this covers the whole range for my needs.

Make it in a smoothie with milk/bannana/etc. daily. But you have to keep at it.

"These long chain unsaturated fats provide various benefits including; cell membrane fluidity, normal cell growth and maturation, brain development, prostaglandin production, cardiovascular health, nerve cell (myelin sheath) maintenance, and a healthy immune response."

B-12, B-6.....

Another poster here actually uses Metanx ---It's a prescription brand containing high levels of B vitamins and folic acid for nerve health.....

Also, antioxidants

What she is taking is good and, as Toppers, suggests HEMP is fabulous.


I would also add Lion's Mane, a medicinal mushroom. It's science name begins with an "H" - It's best to get this straight so it's a good, full dose. It part of a blend, often the amount of this is rather small and this is the one mushroom that has been helpful for to actually help regenerate nerve tissue.


I have not used in it a long time - but I recall it helping.

From my file:


There is some research that shows Lion's Mane (medical mushroom) may help the myelin sheath of the nerve repair. Years ago, I came across a study where this had helped some MS patients (Prior to 2003 when I heard about it.)

When I took it, It did not wire me at all, nor sedate, but did help with a sense of endurance. At that time, it was $100. a month and I could not continue on it for very long (about 10 years ago). The price has come down but the dose I took was quite larger than what is in one capsule from this site.


This is just one commercial site, I don't know about them, specifically, but it's just one place of interest.


http://www.mushroomscience.com/msstore/lionsmane.html

Latin ... Hericium erinaceus
Japanese ... Yamabu****ake
Common Name ... Lion's Mane

==========================

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez

PubMed Search:

Hericium erinaceus - 25 abstracts

Hericium - 58 abstracts

============================


Fiziol Zh. 2003;49(1):38-45.


The influence of Hericium erinaceus extract on myelination process in vitro.


Kolotushkina EV, Moldavan MG, Voronin KY, Skibo GG.

A.A. Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology, National Academy of Sciences, Kiev.


Myelin sheaths, wrapping axons, perform the following important functions: support, protection, feeding and isolation. Injury of myelin compact structure leads to an impairment and severe illness of the nerve system.


Exact mechanisms underlying the myelination process and myelin sheaths damage have not established yet.


Therefore search for substances, which provide regulatory and protective effects on the normal myelination as well as stimulating action on the remyelination after myelin damage, is of special interest.


Recently it was shown that extract from mushroom Hericium erinaceus had activating action on the nerve tissue. So the aim of the present work was to study an influence of an extract from H. erinaceus on the cerebellar cells and the process of myelination in vitro.


Obtained data revealed the normal growth of the nerve and glial cells with extract at cultivating. No pathologic or toxic action of the extract has been found.


The cell ultrastructure was intact and similar to that observed in vivo. The process of myelination in the presence of the extract began earlier as compared to controls and was characterised by a higher rate.


Thus, extract of H. erinaceus promoted normal development of cultivated cerebellar cells and demonstrated a regulatory effect on the process of myelin genesis process in vitro.

Keebler, how long have you had Lyme? How long did you try Abx? It seems like you have such a long history and knowledge level of herbals, supplements, etc. I'm impressed.

if you had all the money in the world to see the most prominent LLMDs in the country, do you think you could hit remission or is simply an inability to tolerate drugs due to other conditions?

Thank you all for pointing me in the right direction.

She is much better today, but I think she should take something to prevent the pain.

It is remarkable to me that yesterday she was in the most pain she has been in ever, and today it is back to a more normal level. Her recovery process is unbelievable.

I think this is working well so far, but we will know more over time.

Thanks again

Dan
