Neuralgia treatment involves dietary supplements and supports that relieve nerve pain and inflammation. Treatment often involves identifying the underlying issue causing the pain. Nonetheless, various natural treatments are effective no matter the cause.
What is Neuralgia?
Neuralgia can be simply defined as nerve pain. This condition is often characterized by a stabbing, burning or other severe pain that runs the length of a damaged nerve. Neuralgia may occur at any part of the body; however, it is most common in the neck and face.
Neuralgia has a number of causes. Common causes include diabetes, shingles, pressure on the nerves, medicinal effects, infection and multiple sclerosis. Attacks of pain often begin gradually and become more progressive over time.
Natural Remedies for Nerve Pain
Treating nerve pain involves a variety of options including topical applications and daily supplements. Three of the most effective natural remedies include cayenne, apple cider vinegar and bull thistle. Supporting nerve function with regular exercise and movement is also important.
Cayenne stimulates circulation and blood flow in the body. As such, it can treat nerve pain associated with transmission of nerve signals. It also serves as a topical pain reliever as the capsaicin in cayenne delivers a consistent amount of heat to the site of pain.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar combats nerve pain in at least two ways. Apple cider vinegar alkalizes the body and removes toxins that may be contributing to pain. Additionally, apple cider vinegar delivers a variety of vitamins and minerals to the body to restore nutrient deficiencies that may be causing nerve pain and issues.
Bull thistle also stimulates circulation. Used as a poultice or cooked and eaten, bull thistle contains a variety of nutrients that are beneficial for treating nerve pain.
Neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that has a variety of causes. Nonetheless, natural remedies deliver healing and comfort easily and safely.
[YEA] ACV is a miracle, have stopped taking medication for nerve pain in legs, and for acid reflux. Arthritis is not a problem anymore, and have lost 25 lbs in 8 week. I feel 20 years younger, and will be on ACV for the rest of my life.
[YEA] My wife suffers from neuralgia every so often probably due to damage caused by Shingles 20 years ago. She started taking ACV last week after discovering your site. She is not cured but says that the symptoms appear to have magnified upon taking the ACV. Would be interested to hear if any other neuralgia sufferers have experienced similar effect and how things worked out. Is there any scientific research as to why ACV may be so beneficial?
