I'm looking for homeopathic (homEo = natural, don't get excited you queers) or other non pharmaceutical methods of getting relief from chronic neuropathic pain? Specifically, I suffer from severe sciatic pain and arm pain resulting from spinal damage.
I have constant pain in my left ankle, both knees, and left hip as parting gifts from Uncle Sam's Molested Children. I used to have a nice inversion table which helped all those out and mitigated the beginnings of lower back pain for me. You mileage may vary, especially if it's higher-spine issues where the pressure isn't as great as in the lower spine. The UnbornOne is right, accupuncture is often successful too.
I used to smoke strong cigars to help with pain because I'm always afraid that I might get drug tested because of my varies benefits. It would work for a while and was great for my back, but the tar and nicotine created bigger problems for me with my legs. I wish I could smoke out again. It definitely helps with pain management. There is a MJ pill, but it is only approved for cancer and AIDs patients. I tried to get it prescribed, so it would mask pot in my system, but I'm not a candidate.
All my posts are not indicative of what I like, but rather a smattering of what I find. Society dictates what they feel is acceptable, not me.

i have a couple friends with chronic pain and they swear by mj. here in CA, there are two kinds available. one for physical issues and one for mental. they both use a vaporizer for smoking. for stronger/faster relief, they use pot brownies or some sort of cannabis oil to cook with.
i understand both types are really strong and fast.
