Alternative and Complementary Medicine is a growing area of interest for many people with Peripheral Neuropathy.  One of the National Assoc. members, Samuel Grundfast, DDS., is a prolific writer on the subject and has a wide distribution of his manual among members.  He lists products that can be useful, in some cases, in reducing pain and other symptoms.  Sam encourages eating correctly, exercising, Yoga breathing and taking supplements. He lists topical creams and lotions to relieve pain, how they work and why.  He also writes about toxins and their effect on the body. 
One can contact Sam at Grundyplus@aol.com.
