Movement and activity can help stimulate muscles in the body and control the movements and positions that are generally affected by neuropathy. Exercise and massage in the legs and hands will help reduce the pain caused by neuropathy.
It will also increase circulation of blood in the body and reduce numbness. Attend chiropractic massage sessions to improve nerve and muscle coordination.
It has been medically proven that most patients of neuropathy have been drinking less water throughout life. Drinking more than the required amount of water for proper functioning of the body is recommended to cure neuropathy completely.
Since toxic substances cause immobility of nerves, flushing them out with water is necessary. The recommended dose of daily water intake per neuropathy patient is half his/her body weight.
St. John’s wort is the most effective herbal remedy for neuropathy. It particularly helps to cure injuries afflicted on nerves of the hands and feet. Oat seed is another effective herbal treatment that removes numbness of body muscles.
