Recently I’ve been working with a client who experiences severe nerve pain. I just wanted to share some tips for those of you who deal with the same thing. Neuropathy can be an overwhelming issue. Debilitating pain and numbness can keep you from living your day to day life, while conventional treatments often have no effect.
There is not a “silver bullet” for neuropathy, but from a holistic standpoint, several lifestyle changes are extremely helpful. It all starts in your diet. Following a paleo, gluten-free, fat-rich diet reverses the damage to your nerves and helps the nerve cells rebuild. This has worked for my current client and for a dear friend of mine, who, as a young mother with three children and debilitating pain and numbness, was able to completely heal! The amino acid L-Glutamine, a wonderful supplement, is super helpful to rebuild your system as well.
As a supplement to the nutritional changes, St. John’s Wort oil is extremely helpful for nerve pain. It does not reverse the condition, but it deals with the pain while your body is being replenished. Together, these changes will help heal your body from all the damage!
The Herbal Guy has a brand new St. John’s Wort Oil for sale, which I highly recommend. Check out our original post on St. John’s Wort in general – the herb itself has many wonderful properties besides helping with neuropathy. And as always, if you have any questions, leave a comment or shoot us an email!
We will not be at the Oil City Farmer’s Market today. Catch us on Thursday!
