Your diet should include plenty of foods rich in B complex vitamins and omega-3s. These nutrients support healthy nerve function and relieve inflammation. All of this can help you reduce the pain caused by trigeminal neuralgia.
Foods rich in these nutrients include dairy products (milk, cheese, and yogurt), eggs, legumes (like peas and beans), leafy greens, whole grain products (like oatmeal and bread), soy milk, almond milk, and flaxseed.
Some herbs can help relieve nerve pain, such as St. John’s wort. Another herb which not only treats nerve pain but also improves the immune system and speeds up the healing process is Rosemary.
It is especially known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties. Before adding them or any other herb to your diet, consult a doctor or nutritionist to prevent possible interaction with your medications.
3. Ashwagandha Oil
This oil can help reduce nerve pain thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Also, it boosts the immune system, thus accelerating the healing process. All you have to do is apply it directly on your skin with gentle massage.
