Trigeminal Neuralgia Natural Treatment

Effective Ayurvedic Treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia: A Comprehensive Guide


Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition affecting the trigeminal nerve, which carries the sensations from the face to the brain. Trigeminal neuralgia  may causes severe pain even after a mild stimulation of the face. Even the act of brushing the teeth and washing the face can trigger a jolt of intense, excruciating pain. The natural treatment for trigeminal neuralgia with the help of ayurvedic approach may provide relief from the pain and other symptoms of this disorder. [1]


The trigeminal nerve has three branches that are responsible for the sensations in the face and regulating chewing. Trigeminal neuralgia occurs when this nerve is inflamed resulting in intense pain. It is also called tic douloureax because the pain is so severe that it can force the patients to contort the face into grimaces. This obvious movement is called a tic. Ayurveda offers an alternative treatment for trigeminal neuralgia, which prevents the bouts of pain caused due to the minimal stimulation of the trigeminal nerve.


The pain caused due to trigeminal neuralgia can occur in an isolated episode or every few minutes, or seconds. Some patients experience long asymptomatic periods spanning over several months or years between the attacks. However, in some patients, it can lead to a chronic pain syndrome, and affect their daily activities significantly.


This can increase the risk of depression and anxiety disorders. Such complications can be avoided by seeking trigeminal nerve pain relief at home using herbs that can calm the nerve, produce an analgesic effect, and provide relief from the symptoms.

Trigeminal neuralgia usually afflicts the people above 50 years of age. The incidence of this disease is higher in the women than in the men. It has been found to affect the right side of the face 5 times more commonly than the left.


Trigeminal neuralgia is sometimes related to multiple sclerosis, a disorder that occurs due to the damage to the myelin sheath protecting the nerves. It may also occur due to a tumor mass pressing on the trigeminal nerve.


Some rare causes of trigeminal neuralgia include a brain lesion, surgical injury, stroke, and facial trauma.



Signs and Symptoms Trigeminal Neuralgia


Some patients may experience short, and mild attacks of trigeminal neuralgia initially. However, the disease may progress over a period of time and cause longer, and more frequent bouts of facial pain. Some signs and symptoms of this disease are discussed beneath:


  • Patients experience episodes of severe, jabbing, or shooting pain that feels like an electric shock and radiates to different parts of the face

  • Constant burning and aching sensation

  • The pain is felt in the areas supplied by the trigeminal nerve, such as the cheek, teeth, jaw, gums, eye, forehead, and the lips.

  • The pain is focused at one spot or may spread in a wider pattern

  • Spontaneous attacks of pain that is triggered due to the factors like touching the face, speaking, chewing, or brushing the teeth. Some other factors that may trigger the pain of trigeminal neuralgia include eating, drinking, shaving, talking, encountering a breeze, putting on makeup, and smiling.

  • The pain usually affects one side of the face during an episode. However, in rare cases, the symptoms may affect both the sides.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.
