Reducing Nerve Pain Naturally
If you've been experiencing chronic pain, but MRIs, CTs, and X-rays are showing up with no results, you might be suffering from nerve pain.

Nerves run throughout your body and carry signals from your brain to certain parts of your body when you feel something. For example, if you bump your elbow on a door, the nerves within your body will send pain signals to your brain.

Nerve pain can result from tissue damage, inflammation, trauma, medication side effects, nutritional deficiencies, or autoimmune disease. Your nerve pain may be described as sharp, stinging, burning pain.

If you're experiencing nerve pain, your doctor might write a prescription. However, some of these medications can cause greater problems to your health.

Are there natural treatments you can use to treat your nerve pain?
  • Primrose oil
  • N-acetyl cysteine

Michael Sugerman joins Dr. Mike to discuss the frustrations associated with nerve pain, as well as the natural treatments available to help ease your pain without any harmful side effects.
