A while back I blogged about how my feet have been hurting for the last year or two and the different things I'd tried and some of the things I'd eliminated from my diet. I thought I'd found the cure for the hornets nest feeling I'd get in my feet when I eliminated artificial sweeteners. I found my neurapathy getting better when I got rid of them (namely Acesulfame Potassium) However, as has been the case every time I think I've found the cure for my neurapathy my feet started hurting again. I didn't blog about my slow return to pain, because I didn't have a clue to why it was happening, so I lived with the pain for many months while I thought about the problem. A few weeks ago I thought "hmm, I'd run out of my "Now" brand tri chromium quite a while back and because I thought it was the artificial sweeteners that were the cause of my pain I hadn't bothered to replace them. So, I bought myself another bottle of Now brand Tri- Chromium and started taking one two to three times a day with meals. The directions recomend taking one 500mcg capsule per day so talk to your Doctor if you plan on taking more. Within a few days of my taking the chromium/cinnamon supplement the pain in my feet toned way back down.
I have to mention that Now brand Tri-Chromium also has 250 mg's of Cassia Cinnamon in each pill. It is possible that it is the Cassia Cinnamon which is helping my neurapathy or it could be a synergistic effect from the chromium and Cinnamon or also there is a chance it is all in my head, which case one could say it's a "placebo effect" ie just because you think something is helping it does. Whatever the case I'm going to keep taking my "Now" Brand Chromium with Cassia Cinnamon as long as I feel it helps my diabetic neurapathy. You may want to talk to your Doctor and give it a shot too. Shoot me an e mail if it works for you (or if it doesn't) I want to know. Have an awesome day!!! Burnie
