Four tips to combat nerve pain during cold weather

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. But if you experience chronic pain, lower temperatures can make it one of the most difficult times of the year.

Neuropathy — like most chronic pain — often gets worse as temperatures drop. Blood flow slows in your outer extremities when your body is exposed to cold. Nerve pain — especially in your hands and feet — increases as your circulation decreases.

So, what are you waiting for?

I guess the better question is, what’s holding you back? If the answer is nerve pain there is hope. Everyone has the right to enjoy a little R&R once in a while, and that includes nerve pain sufferers. Don’t be afraid to limit yourself on travel arrangements due to chronic nerve pain. 

Neuropathy Nutrition 101

It’s not every day that you think about the food you put in. It’s easier to not care about certain ingredients or daily serving sizes when the stomach is calling. However, this relaxed way of thinking needs to change if the body has any hope of feeling good.
