One important step you can take to boost the health of your nerves is to find ways to improve circulation. Proper circulation allows your blood to carry vital oxygen and nutrients to nerve cells in the body. Some effective methods of improving circulation include stretching, drinking lots of water, yoga, massage, elevating the feet, warm baths, proper diet and more.
A few things that can hurt your circulation include smoking, tight or restrictive clothing (especially socks, shoes or pants), sitting for long periods of time and poor diet.
