Best Natural Cure and Home Remedy for Trigeminal Neuralgia...

QUESTION:

My dad has trigeminal neuralgia on the side of his face. He is in extreme pain. Do you know any natural cures that we can get for him?


ANSWER:

Hi Brenda, and thanks for your question regarding a natural cure or treatment for trigeminal neuralgia (TN).

Firstly, for those who don't know what trigeminal neuralgia is, this is a debilitating condition that causes intense pain in the face and is actually considered one of the most painful conditions you can have. The type of pain felt is usually a stabbing electric shock, burning, pressing, crushing, exploding or shooting type of pain, normally affecting only one side of the face at a time. The cause of this health problem is oversized blood vessels compressing on the trigeminal nerve, which then damages the protective outer layer that surrounds the nerves (myelin sheath). Believe it or not, the main initial trigger for this disorder appears to be a viral attack.

Thankfully, there are some terrific natural remedies that not only provide quick pain relief, but also cure this health problem quite rapidly as well.

Here's the top 3 you must consider...


#1. Colloidal Silver and DMSO: New findings have now shed some light on what actually causes this condition in the first place. It seems trigeminal neuralgia is initiated by a viral infection which may have been laying dormant in the nervous system - similar to what initiates/causes a herpes or shingles outbreak, and even bells palsy.

So the best way to flush out and kill any and all viruses in the body and give yourself some welcome pain relief is with a combination of colloidal silver and DMSO.

The colloidal silver is first taken orally at 3-5 teaspoons per day (in divided doses) mixed in a full glass of water for a period of 8-12 weeks. This will eradicate all viruses, bacteria, fungicides and unwanted protozoa's within the body. Colloidal silver is safe to use as well and doesn't have any harmful side effects. But you do need to be careful what brand you use. There are lots of poor quality and suspect brands out there. This is the only true quality and certified colloidal silver you should be using... MesoSilver.

For external benefit and relief from trigeminal neuralgia, here's what you need to do with the colloidal silver and DMSO...

Mix together 1 teaspoon (100 drops) of MesoSilver with 20 drops of pharmaceutical grade DMSO. Soak the mixture with a paper towel or rag then place over the affected/painful area. Leave on for 20-30 minutes. Repeat this process 3 times daily for 4-6 weeks. The colloidal silver will help to kill the virus, while the DMSO helps the silver to penetrate deep inside, along with providing powerful pain relief.


#2. Magnesium and Boron: Magnesium and boron are both crucial for the health of nerve fibers and myelin sheath. They will not only help to restore the normal function of the trigeminal nerve (by restoring the myelin sheath), they will also help to reduce any swelling and inflammation.

In addition, boron from sodium borate (Borax) regulates and balances hormones (another suspected precursor to trigeminal neuralgia) and is an extremely potent heavy metal detoxifier! You can read more about the astonishing health benefits of borax/boron, along with all the dosage requirements (listed under the "What And How Much to Use" section) here... The Borax Conspiracy.

To get your daily supply of absorbable magnesium, a transdermal magnesium oil spray is definitely the way to go. With the oil spray, the magnesium is absorbed straight into the bloodstream through the pores of the skin. Very powerful indeed!

You can either buy a pre mixed transdermal magnesium spray or make up your own (which is much cheaper). Here’s how you can easily make it yourself…


-What You’ll Need

1/2 cup of Magnesium Chloride Flakes (like these)

1/2 cup of Distilled Water

Glass Bowl

Spray Bottle to Store the Magnesium Oil


-Directions

Boil the ½ cup of distilled water and tip into the glass bowl

Add the ½ cup of magnesium chloride flakes

Stir the mixture well until the magnesium chloride flakes are completely dissolved.

Leave to cool then store in the spray bottle


-How to Use

Spray the magnesium oil on your arms, legs, and stomach once to twice daily using 10-15 sprays per application. You’ll find it may tingle on your skin, especially the first few times you use it. This is normal and means it’s working. Leave on for at least an hour before showering. Use a natural skin moisturizer afterwards.


#3. Anti-Viral Herbs and Coconut Oil: Anti viral herbs such as St John's Wort (the most powerful), turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, garlic, cloves, oregano, lemon balm, and rosemary all help tremendously with trigeminal neuralgia by further helping to kill any unwanted viruses, along with boosting the immune system and calming the nerves. Cayenne pepper is also terrific for strengthening blood vessel walls and increasing blood blow. This helps to calm and settle down the enlarged blood vessels that may be pushing on the trigeminal nerve. Finally, coconut oil is another potent anti-viral and anti-fungal food that works a treat for reversing the effects of this condition.

So make sure you take St John's Wort every day, along with mixing a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in 1/2 a glass of warm water and drinking down twice daily. Coconut oil is consumed at the rate of 2-3 tablespoons per day (taken anyway you want) and with the other anti-viral herbs, just use them in your cooking and foods as much as you possibly can!


So hopefully these tips help you and your dad out Brenda.


Good luck to you and all the best!


Regards

These remedies will still help tremendously with occipital neuralgia Bill, particularly the magnesium and boron, which are both absolutely crucial for healthy nerve function and the health/regeneration of myelin sheath.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

I have followed these instructions for my TN, the Mesosilver and DSMO. I'm on my third week and so far nothing. But going to stay with it for a bit longer. I have TN pain everyday of my life, all day. I hope this will eventually help with continued use. Thank you

Hi Olga. Don't forget to utilize all of the recommendations listed for best results, not just the colloidal silver and DMSO. And remember, it will take at least 10-12 weeks for the full effects to be felt.

Good luck and all the best to you!

I found a cure that works for me
by: Pat

Hi Everyone, I have suffered with Trigeminal Neuralgia for the past five years. I had given up hope of ever being rid of this dreadful pain. My Doctor had prescribed just about everything to ease the pain, including anti-seizure drugs, which quite frankly, left me dizzy and legless. I decided to go to my local Health Food Store and they suggested I take 300mg of St. Johns Wort together with a B-Complex once a day. Within a week I was pain free!!!! I sooooo wish I had gone sooner. I have been pain free for about 4 months now and still take one tablet of each every day - no way do I want to suffer that pain ever again.
Hope this helps any fellow sufferers!

Borax
by: Ron

Hi. This is slightly off subject but I am really interested in Borax/Boron. I live in Chile and have found a supplier of Borax. I am interested in making my own solution taken from the recipe found in The Borax Conspiracy. The only thing is I have been told that taking Borax can cause organ damage. Is this true? The reason I want to use this is for arthritis.

Hello Ron. Borax does not cause organ damage. As long as you stick to the recommended dosages, you'll be fine. I've been taking borax for the last 8 years (originally started for sore joints) and feel amazing for it. Wouldn't be without it now!

You should have a read of this article for more information on the TRUE benefits of borax... Borax Cures and Health Benefits - Earth Clinic.

Nerve injury

Hi Troy,
Can a person that has injured the nerves of both arms use this same treatment? That injury was caused by trauma, so it's not viral.
Thanks a lot.

Not sure to be honest Isabel. Magnesium and boron should certainly help though as these are crucial for healthy nerve function. Vitamin D3 would also be helpful and works in conjunction with these two minerals as well.

Quick Fix For Neuralgia
by: Janet Fedorwisky

I was involved in a car crash when I was 16 years old, fracturing my scull. About a year after this I started suffering from neuralgia. I didn't tell anyone about the pain as it came on at night when everyone was in bed and after I had been asleep for about two hours. I used to creep downstairs and bathe my head using very hot water. I also used to sit with my face in front of the gas fire and the heat would literally burn away the pain. Pain killers never worked. This is the way I survived for many years. Then one day I found an old 'pocket doctor' book written back in 1903 that my mum had bought at a jumble sale. In that book I came across a description for neuralgia, which I had never heard of before but recognized the symptoms straight away. Now I at least had a name for what was wrong with me. When I was 42 years old I went to have acupuncture done. Amazingly, after the full course (five sessions) it had completely gone.
Hope this helps other sufferers.
Janet from Nottingham.

B Complex??
by: Rachel

Thank you for this article! I'm ordering the products needed immediately! I was wondering what B complex you would suggest if someone wanted to add it to their regimen. Do you think it would be helpful? Thanks again!

Dec 29, 2016

by: Troy

Hi Rachel. The B group vitamins are extremely important for the health of the nerves, particularly B12. According to research presented at the 14th Congress of the International Headache Society, a B12 deficiency may actually be a contributing factor to facial neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia and peripheral neuropathy... Facial Neuralgia May Be Linked to Vitamin B12 Deficiency.

So yes, it would be a good idea to add a B complex supplement to your diet. This one is very good and reasonably priced... Nature's Bounty Super B-complex. Just remember to take it with a meal for full absorption.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Rachel!

Borax
by: Ron

Hi Troy, been taking Borax now for a couple of weeks. You replied to my initial question in regards to organ damage and thanks for that. When you first started taking borax yourself did you experience any side effects or symptons, and if so what were they? If there are other symptoms you know of but have not experienced yourself could you let me know where I can find that information. Thanks in advance. Ron

Hi Ron. Apart from a little kidney pain for the first few days, I really didn't suffer any side effects as such. I was already taking magnesium and vitamin D so this would have helped.

Hope it helps. :)

Trigeminal neuralgia for 5 1/2 yrs
by: Kudu

Hi. I am a 34 yr old female and have been suffering from trigeminal neuralgia for 5 1/2 yrs now. I've been in constant pain on one side of my face during this time, along with an electric shock like pain above my upper lip roughly every 3 seconds. It's been horrible! I've had to live like this and drive to work every day always in pain (doc prescribed carbamazepine pills (tegretol) and they helped, but make me drowsy!) I lost 3 molars because of my TN and my dentist did lots of root canals. I never thought of looking for natural remedies coz my doc said the tegretol pills were the only solution. I was actually able to gradually reduce the amount of pills to take over the years until one day I was pain free. That was when I got pregnant and had my baby (doc had said not to get pregnant when on tegretol) but 2 months after the delivery my TN came back! Fortunately it was less intense than before but I'm still in pain and suffering as I'm writing this. I'm glad you guys wrote this article about natural remedies for TN. Going to try them out. Thank you.

Can remedies suggested be used with medication?
by: Andy

Hi Troy. My daughter (age 16) has had Trigeminal Neuralgia for 5 years. The current medication she is using is Trileptal and Algofren, which helped with the pain initially but not anymore. Can she use the suggested remedies simultaneously with these drugs or should she stop taking them? Also, does her age make any difference? Can she still use the suggested remedies?
Thank you

Feb 21, 2017
Reply to Andy
by: Troy

Hi Andy. Firstly, yes, your daughter can certainly use all of these remedies - just halve the dosage amounts that are listed (except for the magnesium spray, which doesn't matter). Because she is taking some major drugs, I would recommend you work in conjunction with a health care professional such as a naturopathic physician. They will be able to advise you on whether to continue with the medication(s) or not. Unfortunately, I cannot advise you on this.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you. :)

Didn't Realize?
by: Sidney

I did not realize until this morning that the problems I have developed are probably TN. My first issue was waking up one morning about 3 months ago with a pain in my jaw and was unable to open my mouth without effort. Since I am 75, I assumed it was arthritis and tried to deal with it. Now about 2 weeks ago I woke up with sensitivity in my teeth. I had experienced this before, so, again, I tried to deal with it. Since neither have gotten better, I think about this often. Something reminded me of my grandparents talking about neuralgia and I decided to look up the symptoms. That's when everything fell into place! I already take B12 and a B Complex, but plan to add the St. John's Wort to my regimen. If that doesn't help, I'll keep trying the "home remedies" until I either get relief or exhaust the list. I detest having to add more man-made medicines and don't want surgery, so those things will be my absolute last resort. Thanks for all your good information.

Hi Sidney. Firstly, a sore lower jaw and teeth sensitivity can also be a sign of a heart problem, so it may be a good idea to get your heart checked out so you can rule that out if everything comes back okay. Now with the remedies listed above, they will work much better if you use them all in conjunction with each other, rather than trying each one one at a time. It's up to you of course what you decide, but if you want to get the most out of this, try combining them all together.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Help
by: Rey

I think I may have TN and I was wondering if you could help me? I was watching a video about how to cure TN and it recommended that I take 10 drops of lemongrass essential oil twice a day. It is said to help with a potential virus in your body effecting the trigeminal nerve. Do you think it is wise to do this? I just want help, I have been taking fish oils and a b12 vitamin everyday for a about 3 months now to help with the pain but it doesn't seem to be working. Any answers would be much appreciated.

Apr 06, 2017

Lemongrass oil is terrific for helping to cleanse the body and stimulate digestion. Taking it on it's own, however, would not be enough. Our recommendation would be to use it in conjunction with the remedies listed above and you'll see some great improvement in your TN symptoms. Remember, these opinions are purely our own and you should consult your health care professional before considering any advice (we are required by law to put this in).

Hope this helps you Rey.

Good luck and all the best to you!

My Cure For Trigeminal Neuralgia
by: Anonymous

Hi,
I've been taking 800mg of Ashwagandha organic root in capsule form twice daily, along with 2 magnesium capsules at 250mg each, a flaxseed capsule (good source of omega 3), a multivitamin capsule, turmeric extract and vitamin B12 chews everyday. It has helped so much that I'm now pain free!! If I ever feel any sensation after consuming these capsules I simply take more magnesium, along with getting sun whenever I can for vitamin D. I recommend to eat organic as much as possible as well. A bonus with eating organic is that your food will most likely have high amounts of boron in it and this mineral is extremely beneficial and much needed! :)

All of these remedies are safe to take, however, you would still need to check with your health care professional first (we are required by law to tell you this).

Hi Tiffany. We've received lots of positive feedback from TN sufferers who've been using these remedies for a long period of time. Some say they have been completely cured while others say they have seen moderate improvement. This protocol is definitely not a silver bullet. At the very least it will improve your symptoms. By how much is difficult to say. The results do vary from person to person.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you! :)
