Trigeminal Neuralgia

Acupuncture can really calm down the pain of trigeminal neuralgia, so the first step is to start coming in for once a week treatments, and commit to doing this for 3 months.  Along with acupuncture, here are other options to help:

This next one is an herbal formula used in general to get relief from pain, including pain in the facial nerves. This medicine also enhances the flow of blood to the affected area

Kudzu helps nerve pain by inhibiting the serotonin-2 receptors. Researchers have found that kudzu can reduce inflammation by interrupting the body's inflammatory response. Taken as a pill or powder, kudzu affects the body in ways similar to the hormone estrogen. That means people who have hormone-sensitive cancers or are taking tamoxifen should avoid it. It should also not be used by anyone on oral medication for diabetes.

St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is actually one of my favorites for nerve pain, especially spinal pain, for which I have used the infused oil rubbed on topically and the tincture taken internally. It can reduce pain enough to allow people to sleep.  It helps soothe as well as helps regenerate the nerves.

Skullcap can be used as a long-term tonic to build and nourish the nervous system as well as having an immediate affect that can be used for insomnia from circular thinking or for nerve pain.

Supplements that may help are:

  • Take one B-100 B-complex vitamin daily. The B vitamins are necessary for normal nerve function, and supplementing is a good preventive measure. Do not take more than 200 mg of B-6, as higher daily doses can actually cause nerve pain.

  • Take 100 mg of alpha-lipoic acid daily. This antioxidant protects microcirculation to the nerves. You can gradually increase the dose to 300 mg twice a day over the next month.

The only problem is that many more people are shying away from these groups despite the help they are offering.a

I hope that you won't mind me placing a comment on your blog simply because I felt I really needed to state something following visiting your blog. You've got to be an expert doing this website malarkey as I found my visit to be extremely pleasing and will definitely be heading back here for yet another visit soon. I've just had a Hunstanton visit and am chilling out with my notebook as a way to wind down, and this site took my mind off my problems for a few minutes, all the best Demarion Hunstanton-Norfolk.

Andomized controlled trial of needle therapy for fringe diabetic neuropathy. 90 patients were treated with either wrist-lower leg needle therapy, entire body needle therapy, or ordinary medicinal treatment. Both needle therapy bunches experienced fundamentally preferred results over the routine medicinal/control bunch. Needle therapy was likewise seen to enhance glucose and lipid digestion system, and restore the elements of fringe nerve cells. Thanks!
