Since most people suffering from peripheral neuropathy are either diabetic or pre-diabetic  That is not to say that high glucose levels are the only cause of peripheral neuropathy, however it is the predominant cause. Because of this it is essential to keep your glucose levels low in order to abate the condition from further damaging nerves. Turmeric, a spice that has been used for hundreds of years, has glucose lowering properties.  It is an analgesic that helps prevent inflammation and is also known to cleans and promote liver cell regeneration.

The ingredient in turmeric that provides its medicinal properties is called curcumin.  As a member of the ginger family turmeric is formed as a spice by grinding the underground stems of the turmeric plant into a powder.

Natural sources of turmeric are found in Indian foods, primarily curries.  The North American diet does not really use turmeric and as a result the best source of turmeric for medicinal purposes is through the use of nutritional supplementation.

Scientific studies of the benefits of turmeric so far have relied on tests conducted on lab mice and rats.  Human studies have yet to be conducted however the lab animal tests have shown positive results especially for reducing nerve pain and glucose levels.  Daily overall recommended dosage is 2000 mg split up into smaller portions such as 4 times daily of 500mg capsules or 5 times daily of 400mg capsules, etc.
