I have had trigeminal neuralgia for the past 6 years.
Dear Terry, “I have had trigeminal neuralgia for the past 6 years. Treatment for this condition has included two medical procedures, injections, and radiofrequency ablation. I am currently taking a prescription medication for the pain. Do you have any more “natural” options?’ — Marvin S., Elizabeth, NJ
Dear Marvin, I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulties finding an effective treatment. The good news is I do have some options that I believe will make a significant difference.
When it comes to addressing pain, I would recommend these four ingredients: highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking the four ingredients three times daily.
I believe you would also 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 the 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.
