A healthy, nutritious diet is not only essential for normal nerve function but also can help heal repair nerve damage. Nutrients known to help proper nerve function include:
1.thiamin (B1), found in whole grains, seeds, beans, peas, pork, and brewer’s yeast;
2.B12, found in dairy products, meat, poultry, and eggs – known to help proper nerve function;
3.calcium, found in dairy products, leafy vegetables, and tofu; and
4.potassium, found in spinach, squash, bananas, orange juice, milk, and other fruits and vegetables.
Please note the similarity of the diet for rebuilding the myelin sheath. Causes aside, nerves require certain nutrients to function properly.
I don’t recommend some of the suggested foods above, but at times may be needed or the advantages out way the disadvantages.
