I have a pinched nerve in my back.
Q. Dear Terry, “I have been told by my doctor that I have a pinched nerve in my back. What can I take to help alleviate some of the discomfort I am experiencing?” — Adolfo G., Toledo, OH
A. Dear Adolfo, I do have some options that I believe will make a significant difference. I would also encourage you to consult with a chiropractor to see if they can help.
I believe you would benefit greatly by taking a combination of nutrients including B vitamins, biotin, alpha lipoic acid, chromium, zinc, and boswellia. B vitamins (B1-B3, B6, B12, Folate, and Pantothenic Acid) help nerves function better, delay damage to nerves, and reduce the frequency and intensity of pain symptoms. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) can boost levels of glutathione, one of the body’s natural antioxidants, which helps protect delicate nerves from oxidative damage. Current research also shows that ALA can help to reduce the pain and tingling symptoms. Extremely effective as an antioxidant, zinc helps to promote tissue and wound healing. I recommend taking these ingredients three times daily.
In the meantime, I would recommend taking these four ingredients: highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address any pain you are experiencing. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking these four ingredients three times daily.
