If you’re suffering nerve pain, it could be for any number of reasons: thyroid problems, diabetes, spinal issues, maybe even drinking too much. While it’s absolutely crucial that you definitively identify the cause of your nerve pain before you start attempting any of these treatment options (in case it’s something more sinister and requires medical intervention), your body has an amazing capacity to heal itself and you may be able to reduce or even cure your nerve pain through these simple tips.
Eat More Fresh Food
Increasing your intake of fresh green vegetables and reducing your intake of processed foods like white bread is going to reduce inflammation, which in turn will reduce your nerve pain.
Drink Lots of Water
Water is another great inflammation reducer, and will help flush toxins out of your body (this is particularly important if you’re receiving massage treatment for your pain)
Eat Good Fats
Our nervous system needs Omega 3’s to perform properly; in fact, you can even get phantom pains if you’re ingesting too many bad fats (Omega 6’s) instead of the good fats found in avocadoes, olives and fish.
Turmeric is an inflammation fighting super spice, so toss roast vegetables in it before you roast them to take advantage of all it has to offer
See Your Chiropractor
Chiropractic is all about the nervous system; how it works, how it’s structured, what causes malfunctions and missed messages. Even if the pain isn’t in your back or neck, a chiropractor is the nerve professional you need.
