Trigeminal Neuralgia

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal or 5th cranial nerve, one of the largest nerves in the head.

Causes and Risk Factors

This condition is caused by either nerve degeneration or pressure on the nerve. According to the NINDS, the presumed cause of TN is a blood vessel pressing on the trigeminal nerve as it exits the brainstem. This compression causes the wearing away of the protective coating around the nerve (the myelin sheath). It’s also thought to be caused by multiple sclerosis.

Symptoms

Symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia are:

  • Extreme, sporadic, sudden burning or shock-like facial pain that lasts from a few seconds to 2 minutes per episode
  • Pain on one side of the face, especially around the eye, jawline or cheek
  • Pain triggered by touch or sound

Healing Options

It’s recommended to wear a magnetic facial mask for a few hours throughout the day, and preferably at night while you sleep.

Also facial crystal placement can greatly help alleviate pain and ultimately lead to nerve repair. Good crystals to place on the face include all purple, indigo, and violet stones, i.e. Amethyst, Purpurite, Lepidolite (including Pink Lepidolite), Charoite, and Purple Fluorite to name a few.

Other good natural therapies include acupressure, acupuncture, pranic healing, chiropractic, anti-gravity therapy (lying on an anti-gravity board for 15-30 minutes a day); and facial; massage to name a few.

Anti-gravity mats (body slant, body lift) can be purchased from Age In Reverse at www.ageeasy.com

Dietary Intervention

Because an acidic diet leads to excess mucus, malignant mucus, this mucus excess condition can cause pressure against the nerve leading to the symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia.

The best way to reverse this insidious condition is to first and foremost make a dietary change – eliminate all meat, dairy products, refined grains, refined starches, sugar, salt, and acidic beverages, i.e. milk, alcohol: wine, beer, champagne, etc.; lattes, coffee, hot cocoa, soda pop, etc.

Eat predominantly raw or perhaps, 75% raw foods and 25% cooked but vegan foods.

Drink alkaline water preferably and if you are unable to find alkaline water, drink spring water. Supplement liquid oxygen drops to your water. Alchemist Gold can also be added to your drinking water.

Drink vegetable juice daily or as often as you can. Real and living foods (raw foods, fruits and vegetable juice) will help the nerve(s) to repair.

Good herbs that can help to alleviate the pain include Feverfew, White Willow Bark, Black Willow Bark, Wood Betony, Woodruff, and Meadowsweet. Or, you can take Dherbs.com Headache and Pain Formula (a/k/a/ Bio-Salicin Formula), which includes all of the herbs supra.

Good nervine herbs to take to help repair, nourish, strengthen, and rejuvenate the nerves include Kava Kava, Jatamansi, Lily of the Valley, Valerian Root, Lavender Flower, Passionflower, Scullcap, Catnip, and Blue Vervain to name a few.

The best herb for TN and any other degenerative nerve condition is Nerve Root, a/k/a Lady’s Slipper, a very rare herb and thus diabolically expensive herb. If you can find this herb, buy it and take it, preferably in extract form or tea form.

Externally for TN, massage the facial skin with DHerb’s Oxy Oil (preferably in the morning).

    Q: Dear herbalist, I have beginning stages of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, triggered by a foot injury six months ago. While I will be starting physical therapy soon, I would rather not be forced to take big pharmacy medications. I love Dherbs and I hope there is a better alternative to reduce symptoms and assist with nerve repair and ultimately (hopefully) remission. Please help. I am only 30 years old. Sincerely, Rebecca

    A:

    We always recommend doing The Full Body Cleanse first to get your overall health into a better place, your body is always more receptive to healing when it's in a healthier state. You should do the Nerve Cleanse and Regimen to specifically help bring recovery to your nerves. After cleansing we suggest continuing with the Nerves Formula and the Central Nervous System supplement. If you're looking for a supplement to assist with pain we suggest trying the Headache and Pain Formula.

    Q: Is it possible that the Headache and Pain formula that my mother has currently been on since June of this year could be causing her to have internal bleeding. She is peeing brown at times. Her blood work came back fine. Her kidney are functioning normally. I wonder if there is something that I am giving her to cause this. Currently she is on your Headache and Pain formula, Calcium Formula, Nerves formula, Joint formula, MSM formula, and CNS formula. Everything is normal except for the brown looking urine she has developed for over a month now and it occurs in the morning. Do you know what could be causing this? Am I giving her too many herbs at one time? Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you, Dherbs.com. I appreciate it.

    A:

    No, not at all! Herbs don't cause problems. They help heal them! The morning piss is usually the most toxic one, releasing the toxins and poisons that have been broken down at night during sleep. This is normal and is a sign her body is normalizing itself. There's nothing to worry about. There never is! Her body is healing itself!

    Q: I'm only on the 4th day of the FULL BODY DETOX, but my sciatic nerve is really bothering me (and it was prior to me starting the detox as well), and my energy level (especially here at work) is still pretty much dragging. I know that you do not advise taking any of your other herbs while doing the detox, so do you have any suggestions for the relief of my sciatic nerve and fatigue situation?

    A:

    You could drink herbal tea during the Detox. Just don't take solid things (herbs, supplements). Try the HEADACHES TEA! Drink a few cups per day! If your sciatic nerve is bothering you while cleansing it's because the nerve is being worked on by the herbs. Let the herbs do its job. The pain won't last long. You did something in the past that brought you pleasure but damaged the nerve so now you're experiencing the flip side (pain) on your way back to balance.

    Q: The dentist stated "the nerve in my tooth, is causing my tooth ache". Therefore, the nerve in the tooth needs to be removed. This is caused by tooth decay, and poor dental hygiene (flossing, sweets). I am taking Wild Oak Bark, will this help?

    A:

    I can understand what the dentist said, but why not attempt work on your nerves (Nerves Formula and Tea), drinking Cilantro and Parsley juice, drinking other vegetable juice, and changing your diet? Dap some Clove oil on to the toothache (use a q-tip and rub on tooth and gums). Try everything in your power before you give in to dental surgery, Beloved!

    Q: I have a condition called endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus, is found elsewhere in the body. Last year, I had surgery to remove the excess tissue, but the only thing that day was help relieve pelvic pain. Although I sometimes still get pain, it's not as painful as before. My husband and I have been trying to conceive, however due to my condition, it is obviously making it very difficult for us since it's known for these women to have a higher risk of infertility. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Infertility is easy to reverse. First, perform the Full Body Detox (to help cleanse the human body). Next, perform the Total Woman Cleanse (which works on your female hormonal system). Lastly, perform the Fertility Kit (which enhances potential of conception). Read some of our FREE health articles on our site. We have articles on "Endometriosis" and "Infertility." There is hope for you, Beloved!

    Q: I recently purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I totally understand that healing is holistic and that changes must occur in diet, lifestyle, and only positive thinking will result in optimal health. I am noticing balding on the right side of my head. Of all the hair care products provided by dherbs.com, I was curious to know if using any of the dherbs.com hair herbs would affect the detox/cleansing regime? If not which would be the most effective in assisting me with hair loss? (Due to financial limitations I can't afford to purchase them all because I just purchased an alkaline water machine that set a brother back)Aside from performing the anti-viral cleanse regime. I eat plenty of cilantro and parsley, drink half my body weight in alkaline water daily, and eliminate stressors out of my life. I was interested in knowing what other follow up actions can I take to help assist me in overcoming this trial (virus) that has changed my life for the better.

    A:

    You have the right attitude and spirit! Kudos to you. For the hair inquiry, you can drink the HAIR-SKIN-NAILS TEA during your detox. In re additional pointers, work on your mind-reprogramming it. Use daily affirmations! Reinvent yourself. Meditate! Perform yoga! perform the "SEA SALT SOAKS" daily! Keep getting knowledge! Just be creative and follow!
