There are herbal medicines known to help nervous conditions; such herbs can be used to protect or shield the nerves against further development of the disease, pain or other symptoms. Herbs used internally and/or applied externally as a lotion are applicable for neuritis, neuralgia, palsy, bells palsy, trigeminal neuralgia, muscular dystrophy, MS*, neuropathies, nerve pain, nervous distress, neurological disorders.
This herbal mixture of the strongest and most supportive of nervine herbs is most effective taken regularly through the day.
Use the Neuralgia Lotion for external application to compliment the internal action of NerveShield.

* MS – multiple sclerosis is caused by a fault in the body’s immune system which leads it to attack nerve fibres and their protective insulation, the myelin sheath. This damage prevents the nerves from ‘firing’ properly, and then leads to their destruction, resulting in physical and intellectual disabilities.


Dear Alan, the NerveShield herbs are working well for me and the severe pains in my head which for 3 weeks had me almost climbing the walls! – have eased and now almost gone with yoiur wonderful herbs. I am SO glad, as the neuralgia pain was awful!
Thank you for all your help in so many ways. My heart and blood pressure is well looked after too.
Bless you for all the help you give to those who are suffering (and who are willing to trust the amazing plants!). A true service to humanity – thank you.
Love and Light, Margaret Stow (Dorset, UK)


I saw you 2 months ago about a pain that went from the hip down the front of the leg. I’d had this for months and had seen a chiropractor and taken many painkillers. I couldn’t sleep because of it and it stopped me going for walks. I took your NerveShield and after 3 weeks I felt it improving. and by the sixth week it had gone. It’s now been 2 weeks and I have stopped your medicine and it hasn’t come back. I’m over the moon and I’m back in the gym.
Thank you so much Mr Hopking.
Karen, 56yo. New Milton.


Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that causes a strong urge to move one’s legs. There is often an unpleasant feeling in the legs that improves somewhat with moving them. Occasionally the arms may also be affected. The feelings generally happen when at rest and therefore can make it hard to sleep. Due to the disturbance in sleep, people with RLS may have daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. Additionally, many have limb twitching during sleep.
Risk factors for RLS include low iron levels, kidney failure, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, and pregnancy. A number of medications may also trigger the disorder including antidepressants, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and calcium channel blockers. There are two main types.
1. One is early onset RLS which starts before age 45, runs in families and worsens over time.
2. The other is late onset RLS which begins after age 45, starts suddenly, and does not worsen.
Diagnosis is generally based on a person’s symptoms after ruling out other potential causes.
Restless leg syndrome may resolve if the underlying problem is addressed. Otherwise treatment includes lifestyle changes and medication. Lifestyle changes that may help include stopping alcohol and tobacco use, and sleep hygiene. Medications used include levodopa or a dopamine agonist such as pramipexole. RLS affects an estimated 2.5–15% of the American population. Females are more commonly affected than males and it becomes more common with age.
RLS is often due to iron deficiency (low total body iron status) and this accounts for 20% of cases. A study published in 2007 noted that RLS features were observed in 34% of people having iron deficiency as against 6% of controls.
Other associated conditions include varicose vein or venous reflux, folate deficiency, magnesium deficiency, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, uremia, diabetes, thyroid disease, peripheral neuropathy, Parkinson’s disease, POTS, and certain autoimmune diseases such as Sjögren’s syndrome, celiac disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. RLS can also worsen in pregnancy. In a 2007 study, RLS was detected in 36% of people attending a phlebology (vein disease) clinic, compared to 18% in a control group.
