I find working out the soreness first thing after waking up, generally gives many hour of pain free walking. Find a good massage therapist that does Deep tissue to work mostly on your legs and feet. I've been using a combination of two herbs that have the ability to help the nervous system, they are Scullcap and Passion flower. I also use cayenne to aid in better circulation. These should be taken as directed on the bottle, however remember, your treating a problem, 2 capsules of each 2 to 3 times a day (ever 8 to 12 hours), The cayenne's a different story, start with one a day and work up to 2 every 12 hours, (it may take as much as a month or more to get up to the 2 every 12 hours). I also take a product called Sugar Balance
which has the following herbs in it:
Nettle leaf- Lowers blood sugar, increases insulin sensitivity due to chromium content. Removes uric acid to prevent alloxan formation. Provides nutritional support and strengthens blood vessels to prevent insulin damage.
Bilberry- Has a strong effect on lowering blood sugar.
Fenugreek seed- Lowers blood sugar.
Oatgrass- Lowers blood sugar from fiber content. Strengthens blood vessels, due to silica content, preventing insulin damage.
Gymneme sylvestre- Blocks sugar absorption. Increases islet cells on pancreas. Improves insulin sensitivity.
Juniper berry- Contains a compound that is similar in structure and function to insulin. Improves pancreas function. Strengthens nerves, blood vessels, and adrenal glands. Removes uric acid in alloxan induced diabetes.
Butcher's broom- Increases circulation, particularly to the legs and feet. Silica content strengthens blood vessels.
Inulin (FOS)- Natural fiber source derived from chickory root. Inulin helps prevent rises in blood sugar.
Amla- Strongest source of vitamin C in the herbal kingdom. This protects the blood vessels from insulin damage. Antiviral due topolyphenols, through raising interferon levels, and by raising superoxide dismutase (S.O.D.) levels; S.O.D. produces hydrogen peroxide which kills microbes and stimulates white blood cell activity. Improves protein metabolism to control blood sugar. Increases lean body mass to improve insulin sensitivity.
Kelp- Provides vitamins, minerals, and all trace minerals.
Stevia- Regulates blood sugar through high chromium content. Increases number of islet cells on the pancreas and insulin sensitivity.
Prickly ash bark- Prevents constriction of blood vessels by insulin.
Yucca root- Enhances the absorption of nutrients.
Glucose tolerance factor (GTF) chromium- Regulates blood sugar through increased insulin sensitivity and by increasing the number of islet cells on the pancreas.
Vanadyl sulfate- Functions like insulin, but can carry sugar out of the blood through closed insulin receptor sites, when insulin cannot. Helps to open insulin receptors in insulin-resistant diabetes.
