Feet feel numb? Fingers tingling? If so, you are not alone. This is a common complaint, and it’s one that can be addressed with the right attention and care.
Numbness can cause you to lose feeling in parts of your body. It may cause you to feel tingly all over, like you are being pricked with millions of tiny needles all at once.
Numbness can have varying intensity and triggers that make it worse and cause it to spread.
Nerve damage, compression or irritation are the major causes of numbness and tingling.
If there are no other symptoms associated with numbness, it is usually not a medical emergency. However, numbness accompanied by other symptoms could indicate a serious medical condition. Numbness accompanied by these symptoms could indicate a stroke or other emergency:
Numbness with the symptoms listed above may indicate a stroke. This is a serious emergency condition requiring immediate medical attention.
If numbness occurs with a pounding headache and shortness of breath, it could be caused by a brain tumor. Again, this is a serious emergency condition requiring immediate medical attention.
But if you have had symptoms for a longer period, say weeks, months, or even years, the sinister scenario is not as likely. Now we have time to figure out what is going on and fix it.
Numbness may also be caused by alcohol, diabetes, vitamin B deficiencies, and a variety of other medical conditions.
Poor nutrition and environmental pollutants also contribute to numbness.
Natural treatment options depend upon the cause of the numbness. That’s why it’s best to see your holistic physician. They’ll perform an examination and run appropriate testing to help determine the cause of the numbness. Then, they’ll develop a treatment plan to fix the issue.
The holistic physician we recommend for numbness and tingling is the Doctor of Chiropractic. Vertebral subluxation in your spine is a common cause of numbness and tingling. The answer is the spinal adjustment. Get adjusted by a chiropractor.
Follow the healthy lifestyle
Eat organic, Paleo foods. These are the foods of our ancestors and your body is engineered for good health with these foods. Pesticides and growth hormones in food negatively impact your health. That’s why eating organic foods is an absolute must.
Get sunshine. All living organisms need sunlight to survive and thrive. Your body is no exception.
Get proper sleep. Your body rejuvenates and heals itself while sleeping. That’s why the proper quantity and quality of sleep is vital to health. Sleep at sunset and wake with the sunrise.
Avoid toxins and heavy metals common to household cleaning and personal care products. They poison your system. Here’s a list of the things we use in our home.
Walk or stand barefoot on the earth’s soil. It’s called “grounding” in today’s society but is the way your body was engineered to heal itself. Your connection with the earth does great things for your health and energy. That’s why you feel so good walking barefoot on the beach. Try it daily.
