In brief: Try alpha lipoic aci

Alpha lipoic acid, classified as a nutritional supplement in the us, can help some people with neuropathic pain.
It is worth a try.

The b vitamins (B6 and B12) are good starters.

In brief: Real medicine

Hi home remedies are fine for trivial things.
However, for real problems like diabetic neuropathy, you might want to stick to drugs proven to be effective and safe (claims NO "home remedy" can make). Drugs that can help nerve pain include amitriptyline, Cymbalta, gabapentin, and Lyrica (pregabalin). Metanx is a drug that can actually help heal the damaged nerves. Real problems deserve real medicine! Good luck!
