The top 5 all natural treatments for nerve pain

1. Diet

Sometimes nerve pain in our bodies is caused by the excess intake of a type of food and the lack of another that the body requires. For instance, the lack of vitamins such as the B vitamins can cause an individual to experience nerve pain. Moreover, the use of artificial sweeteners can also cause the same problem.

Watching our diet is, therefore, an easy and natural way to not only treat but also avoid nerve pain. Incorporate a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables into your diet and always stay hydrated.  

Take ginger, be it in your tea or food, ginger helps to reduce inflammation and will thus grant you relief to your nerve pain. Fish oils are also excellent in the treatment of nerve pain as they contain omega 3 oils which also help reduce inflammation.

2. Try supplements

​In addition to your healthy diet of fruit, vegetables and other components such as carbohydrates, it is advisable to complement your diet with supplements, for instance, vitamin supplements.

These are quite convenient, and you can pop one at any time, wherever you are especially, for instance, at the office where you might not get the chance to cook your lunch. If you are not a fan of fish, for example, you may also try fish oil supplements. 

There are other types of supplements such as Nerve Renew which specifically produced to treat nerve pain. Unlike other supplements, you cannot buy Nerve Renew in Walgreens or Walmart but you can visit their official site and purchase them.

​3. Do exercise

Contrary to popular belief, exercises will help in reducing your nerve pain instead of increasing it. For instance, if you are experiencing discomfort in your legs, take a walk and let the muscles stretch. This will help improve blood circulation which can go a long way in reducing nerve pain.

If the pain is too much, however, talk to a physician and enrol for physical therapy. The physician will help you engage in exercises which can specifically help treat the pain that you are feeling in various parts of your body.

​4. Massage or acupuncture

If you are not experiencing severe nerve pain, you may ask a loved one to massage the area you may be feeling a bit of pain, for instance, on your feet. You may also visit a spa and get a professional to give you a full body massage.

Massages go a long way in helping you release the tension you may be feeling in your body and helping the muscles relax which can treat nerve pain. For more serious cases, you may want to consider acupuncture. It is a Chinese method that has been proven to treat nerve pain and may help you get some relief.

​5. Cut out alcohol and smoking

Substances such as alcohol or tobacco may be worsening the nerve pain that you are experiencing. They may also be counterproductive to all other methods that you may be trying to treat nerve pain. In order to get the best results, therefore, cut the two from your diet so as to ensure that methods such as proper diet and massage may work.
