Non-Invasive Neuropathy Relief

At Restore Wellness Center, we have helped more than 15,000 patients find relief from the pain of peripheral neuropathy. But sometimes no matter how effective the treatment, patients still experience some pain between appointments. For those patients who have chosen to take an all-natural, drug-free approach to treating their peripheral neuropathy pain, there are still plenty of options to get relief right at home. It may not be permanent relief, but these tips and tricks have been found to be very effective in helping patients get through the worst of their pain.

Compression Garments
Compression garments such as leggings, socks or shirts can help patients find minor relief from peripheral neuropathy pain. That's because wearing these garments stimulates the larger mylenated fibers in the body, which speeds signals to your spinal cord.

You may also try wrapping your feet in kinesio tape, which can be found online and some health food stores.

Meditation
It may sound kind of "out there," but meditation has been found to aid in relaxation and calmness, and help soothe the body, too. It goes without saying that the more relaxed your body is, the less pain you will experience, because that tension is eliminated.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is another treatment that gets an unjust bad rap. It has been scientifically proven to help eliminate pain from many different ailments, and it has also been found to be very helpful for some peripheral neuropathy patients, too.

Quit Smoking
We all know smoking is bad for you, but for a peripheral neuropathy sufferer, it's especially bad. That's because smoking slows your blood circulation, making nerve damage feel worse. It can also be especially dangerous in peripheral neuropathy patients with diabetes, as this disorder can sometimes lead to foot problems. In severe cases patients may be required to amputate a foot. The better your circulation, the lower the risk of this occurring.

Evening Primrose Oil
This all-natural herbal supplement has been found to reduce pain in diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy. Speak to your doctor before taking any supplement to avoid potentially dangerous interactions.

Exercise
It seems counterintuitive to exercise when you're in pain, but exercising can increase bloodflow throughout the body and keep the heart pumping. It can also build muscle and lower blood pressure, two things that can help reduce peripheral neuropathy pain. Best of all, the more you do it the better you'll feel, so over time your body will get stronger and feel better too.

Eat a Healthier Diet
Whether you have diabetic peripheral neuropathy or pain from any other cause, eating a healthy diet rich in protein, vitamins and minerals can help keep you feeling your best and your body working at optimal performance.

Take a Bath
A warm soak in Epsom salts does wonders for aching muscles - and for aching limbs - because it helps increase your blood circulation. It may have been decades since your last bath, but maybe you should consider trying them again. Just make sure the water isn't too hot!
