Treating nerve issues ranges from specified exercises to dietary changes and supplements. Supporting nerve development and maintenance through regular exercise and appropriate diet is important. Supplements and natural treatments also function to preserve the nervous system and nerve function.
What are Nerve Issues?
The nervous system is responsible for regulating everything the body does and is comprised of three centers – autonomic, motor and sensory. Nerve pain and damage manifests in a variety of ways including sweating, lightheadedness, dry eyes or mouth, weakness, muscular atrophy, paralysis, tingling, burning and many others.
Nerve issues comprise over 100 different types of damage that have various causes. A few of the most common causes of nerve pain include autoimmune disease, cancer, trauma, diabetes, drug effects, nutritional deficiencies and infectious disease.
Natural Care for the Nervous System
The nervous system is complex and susceptible to a number of issues; however, proper care and treatment can relieve issues and preserve effective operation. Several factors contribute to caring for the nerves including exercise and a diet rich in nerve-supporting foods. Additionally, magnesium, chamomile and peppermint are natural herbal remedies for many nerve issues.
Magnesium is an important nutrient for regulating nerve function as well as inflammation. When taken as a daily supplement or applied as a topical agent to the affected area, magnesium stimulates the nerves and relieves inflammation.
Considered a “cure all” by many, chamomile is a natural pain reliever. The active components of chamomile have anti-inflammatory properties as well as nerve-soothing abilities. Chamomile can be used as an aromatherapy oil, tea additive or supplement.
Derived from the peppermint plant, peppermint has a variety of uses. Used as a supplement or applied as an oil, peppermint relives inflammation that may be causing nerve pain. Peppermint also effectively stimulates the nerves to alleviate issues.
Nerve issues range from problems with the autonomic, motor and sensory systems. When treated with natural methods, nerve pain and issues can be relieved safely and effectively.
[YEA] It's time for me to give back to this website so I'm writing about nerve regeneration remedy which worked for me. Two years ago my ulna nerve was severed, the doctors gave me a bleek outlook of recovery. They told me I would have limited mobility in my hand and my outer three fingers would be numb and unusable. Over time, due to lack of use, my hand would become decrepit. It would also be extremely week. My doctor also told me I should forget about dental school, it's not going to happen. Anyways, having written a 15 page paper on nerve regeneration in undergrad, I knew several things:
1) Use it or loose it! Start immediately! Work at it all day long! The sooner the better because that is when the long term success will occur.
2) Secondly, nerve regeneration occurs in everyone, even for spinal injuries. It does not actually happen for most people because scar tissue (which is internally present for all injuries) releases a sequence of not well understood events that inhibit the regeneration. Therefore, my own theory is that it is important to reduce the internal scarring, which can be done by minimizing inflammation, which can be minimized by an alkaline diet.
After I got out of the hospital I immediately went on a strict alkaline diet. It is important to do this as soon as possible, and don't kid yourself, be true to the diet, your regeneration depends on it.
I also did weekly vitamin B shots in my arm. I did this myself at home to keep costs down.
My doctors told me that they had never seen someone with quit a remarkable recovery as mine for my type of injury. After one week I was wiggling my fingers- something the doctors expected to never happen. After one month I could ever do slightly grip. Two months later I had full finger movement and after six months 90% of the feeling came back, I could open jars, write, ad had full motion.
I was hoping to purchase some GABA supplements. I remembered reading a piece on here by Bill which said that sweeteners are not good for nerves - I hope I am remembering accurately. Anyway, I was purchasing a GABA supplement, and it said it contains Stevia Leaf Extract, and I am wondering if this is similar to the sweetener. If so, I don't think I will purchase. Can anybody clear this up please.
