What is Trigeminal Neuralgia?
Trigeminal Neuralgia is a condition characterized by the occurrence of severe neuralgic pains within one or more divisions of the trigeminal nerve. The branches of the trigeminal nerve are spread over the face, from the jaw to the forehead. The episodes of excruciating pain are generally short-lived and on one side of the face. Simple things like washing the face, brushing teeth, or even a gentle breeze can trigger an attack. Trigeminal neuralgia is considered as one of the most painful afflictions of the human body. It mainly affects middle-aged and elderly people, and is more common in women.
Common Treatment Options for Trigeminal Neuralgia:
Allopathic Treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia
– Carbamazepine (Tegretol, Carbatrol) is commonly used as primary trigeminal neuralgia treatment because of its effectiveness in controlling pain.
– Muscle relaxants are also commonly used in combination with Carbamazepine, for relief from trigeminal neuralgia.
These prescription drugs however, come with their share of side-effects.
Surgical Treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia
Various surgical procedures can be considered if drug treatment proves ineffective, or side-effects are intolerable. Surgical procedures include:
– Injection of phenol or alcohol in the trigeminal ganglion
– Radiofrequency thermocoagulation of a branch of the ganglion.
These are low-risk surgical procedures. The disadvantage however, is that they offer only temporary relief, lasting between a few weeks to a few months.
Natural Biotechnology Sarcode Remedies for Trigeminal Neuralgia Treatment
Sarcodes, an inherent therapy of resonance Homeopathy, are essentially bioenergetic impressions of healthy organs, tissues and secretions. Sarcodes are used to teach various systems of the body how to function optimally. Sarcodes have shown astounding results in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. Sarcodes of myelin sheath, for e.g. which is the protective covering on nerves, are used to strengthen the patient’s own myelin sheath. In addition, major spinal nerve sarcodes are used to strengthen the nerves in general and trigeminal nerve in particular. Once the nerves have been strengthened, they are not so susceptible to attacks of trigeminal neuralgia anymore. The result? – Much milder and less frequent attacks of trigeminal neuralgia, if any!
