We’re going to look at some of the causes of trigeminal neuralgia and potential remedies.

There are two types of trigeminal neuralgia. Type 1 trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by unilateral, sudden, brief, shooting, or stabbing pain. It can reoccur every two seconds to two minutes from twice a day to 200 times per day. Type 2 trigeminal neuralgia is described as achy and chronic rather than intense.

Research has found associations between polyunsaturated fatty acids and several chronic diseases, including trigeminal neuralgia. Omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are highly inflammatory and are a large part of the average diet.

Research involving cadavers showed that many people who had trigeminal neuralgia also had certain viruses known to infect the ganglion (nerve bundles). The following viruses have been associated with trigeminal neuralgia:
•Herpes virus (HHV6)
•Epstein-Barr virus

These viruses are considered latent viruses because they go in and out of remission. Extract from shiitake mushrooms, known as AHCC, high doses of vitamin D3 combined with zinc, berberine, and stress reduction can help put these viruses back into remission.

PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide) + Luteolin can support your nerve tissue directly and target inflammation. DMSO is another powerful and penetrative anti-inflammatory that has been used to decrease phantom pain, post-operative pain, post-traumatic pain, and trigeminal neuralgia.

There’s an amazing technique that can reduce trigeminal neuralgia pain very quickly. It’s not a permanent fix, but I've seen it work to relieve pain in about 70% of cases.

Try the following technique for instant trigeminal neuralgia pain relief:
1. Isolate where the pain is coming from
2. Locate the mirror image on the opposite side of the body
3. Massage the area on the opposite side of the body (you should notice tenderness)
4. Check the bad side to determine changes to your pain level
5. Continue until your pain is manageable

    Thank you Dr.Berg your always dropping videos about what’s happening with me ❤

  • @Deb-209 says:

    I got trigeminal neuralgia from taking trulicity for my diabetes. They put me on nerve drugs, which made me feel drunk until I got used to it. I had an acupuncture treatment which helped a lot. But what got rid of it was going off of trulicity. Now been doing healthy keto for 2 months lost 20 pounds so far and have no neuralgia pain.

    Dear Dr. Eric,

    Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude for the informative YouTube video that you shared. We learned a lot from it, so thank you.

    I have a question regarding my 9-year-old son’s health. One day, his entire body went numb for about five minutes, but after this short duration, he returned to normal. Occasionally, after playing soccer for an hour and returning home or while traveling in a car, he experiences this numbing sensation again. I have taken him to a neurology specialist, but they couldn’t identify any underlying issues.

    I am reaching out to you in the hopes that you can provide some guidance or assistance in this matter. Thank you very much for your time and support. May God bless you.

    I went to the dentists for a filling and when giving anesthetic she somehow she hit the trigeminal nerve. Felt like my face and eye were on fire. Thankfully it was short lived. I have the utmost sympathy for anyone suffering from trigeminal neuralgia

    • @MC1RPOSITIVESusieQ says:

      Exactly how were you diagnosed? I’m pretty sure that happened to me but which avenue should I take? Should I see a neurologist and get nerves tested? I’ve had vertigo ever since. Not the spinning /dizziness so much as I’ve had a boat like feeling. Facial pain on either side Started on the right at times I have it on the left?

    • @kristenc4512 says:

      I had the same thing happen but it didn’t go away.

    Woke up extra energetic this morning, weighing 164 pounds again! 💪 Had a magnesium-rich, carb-less dark chocolate coffee and prepared a mineral rich meal to break my fast later. Eggs for molybdenum, oysters for copper and zinc, red onion for chromium, and staying away from fruits and other sulfites for sure! Thanks, Dr. Berg! Have a wonderful day, everyone! 🙂

    Dr. Berg you are a life saver. I am so happy to look at all your or most of your content. I have learn alot and I gave thanks to you. Love what I am hearing. Keeping good health is a must for everyone .

  • @TLain1111 says:

    I was ‘struck by lightning’ of TN in 2007! My TN pain is nearly nonexistent since going as close as possible to a carnivore diet. I also make gelatin using your hydration powder. I did have an MVD surgery in 2008 and again in 2015. After years of debilitating pain, I am close to being pain free. This video is extremely informative and after years of self experimentation, it makes sense! One thing I found is that I was starving my brain of fat. This is obviously not the place to write an article from my personal experiences, but I need to tell you, BRAVO!!!! Thank you!!!

  • @angelicaorlina2195 says:

    My father suffers from it. He had a chronic one for 3-4 years now. Just seeing him in constant pain makes me want to understand what the condition is. He can’t eat, can’t sleep and he said it mimics a heart attack. Experts were suggesting to block the nerves out but he was hesitant. He was also hesitant to drink the medication that was made to cure epilepsy. That is why he is in constant pain. But he said that not eating sugary, oily and processed foods helps soothe the pain a bit. I hope there can be a breakthrough cure for it. I do not want to see him suffering anymore. He couldn’t even smile.

    Thank you Dr. Eric for the techniques you have shared to us. It is very helpful to us.

    • @Miss_Millie_ says:

      There is a breakthrough cure – it’s microvascular decompression surgery. It’s incredible – most wake from the surgery pain free & start weaning off their meds. I’d highly recommend the surgery by a neurovascular surgeon- it’s a game changer!!!

    • @angelicaorlina2195 says:

      @Miss_Millie_  thank you for this. I will let him know. He lives in the PH at the moment.

    • @jillsteinbeck3947 says:

      @@Miss_Millie_ This is the surgery my husband had. Woke up pain free after 7 years of suffering. Still pain free since 2003.

  • @jillsteinbeck3947 says:

    My husband suffered from this for years. Very debilitating night and day. After being on medications that quit working and many mis diagnosis later….opted for the cranial decompression surgery. Woke up pain free! That was in 2003, still pain free. Did not know about you Dr.Berg then…thank god you will be able to help anyone with this information to relieve the suffering! We did so much research…

  • @a.williams45 says:

    Thank you for sharing this relevant information with us, Dr Berg. You’re absolutely right when researching, everything has to be questioned. I’ve had that sudden shooting sharp pain on either side in rare occasions and this is helpful to know. Your daily contribution concerning our health is greatly appreciated. Kindest regards from the UK.

  • @mekman4 says:

    Thank you! All of your advice has been working. Even the smaller nuggets of it. You were absolutely right about how some behaviors _rewire the brain._ They are the cause and not the symptom of other deleterious behaviors after all. And through therapy I’ve come to the understanding as to why and the kind of signals I’ve been putting out into the world, as a result. So, yeah! I appreciate all of your work. It’s easy to get healthy and to break habits when you attack the cause and not the symptoms.

    Thank you, always! For all of your insights!

  • @para97v says:

    Hello Dr Berg, this is a very good video! I was wondering if you could make a video on Bell Palsy?
    This would really help people that have it a lot! Thanks for always trying your best to find natural remedies for us!

  • @Ded-Ede says:

    12:25 this is directly me, post surgery pain and symptoms. Thanks for this very timely video because I called out sick from such pain, I planned to do research and without even searching i see this title from a very trusted source like Dr Berg. I had surgery to remove a brain meningioma benign tumor on my right and after surgery, I started getting symptoms, inflammation of the nerve and pressure on the left side of my head, almost the mirror spot of the surgery and two years later it’s even worse with actual physical changes under my skin, and my scalp, that was a pin inside pimple that was as gotten wider. Of course many visits to doctors and neurologist explained nothing. I’m even scheduled to go see a cannabis specialist/doctor my neurologist suggested. But the information i gathered from this video, it all makes sense, and I’ll definitely implement some and showed them to my primary care because he is open minded and definitely present alternative medicines and treatment too.

  • @Wowookie says:

    After trying various things like injection and physical therapy for frozen shoulder developed trigeminal pain and migraines. Started following your nutritional suggestions. Yay! Secondary started back with my strength trainer and he caught that my posture was out of alighment… curving shoulders forward and wearing “wearing my shoulders for earrings”. We worked on strengthen the posterior chain from head to lower back. Double Yay!!

    After recent covid (1st time) and fatigue symptoms, it’s back. But now have tools including massage.

    Appreciate you!

    Thank you Dr Berg for another wonderful informative video. May God protect you and your family!

    You are a force for the highest good, Dr. Berg! ❤

  • @alham4409 says:

    God bless you, Dr. Berg. You and several other non-medical establishment professionals are out here doing the Lord`s work! In this age of unholy alliance between medical and pharmaceutical industrial complexes, people who do not want to become low-informational, plugged-in automotons can find alternatives. Your explanations and evidence-based poscasts are so informational and educational. Thank you so much for your hard work.

  • @jimmywhite5209 says:

    My poor mother has suffered from this devastating condition for about 7 years. She had the surgery a couple years ago and it seems to have done very little, if anything. Thank you for sharing this.
