Take a hike! Literally. All throughout the month of November you can take part in guided interpretive hikes in Irvine Regional Park. Along the paved paths and trails, you can learn about the local plants and animals—maybe you’ll even spot a few. The treks start at the nature center at 10 am— but you’d better wear a good pair of walking shoes, especially if your neuropathy has been bringing out the animal in you!
The pain and numbness that results from this condition doesn’t have to keep you from enjoying exciting adventures. There are things you can do to ease your discomfort. In fact, one of the best neuropathy remedies is actually going for a walk! The exercise will increase blood flow, which helps nourish damaged nerves and bring them back to health. A warm bath can also stimulate circulation, so when you get back from your walk, go ahead and climb in the tub!
What you eat makes a difference, too. A healthy, low-fat diet filled with fruits, veggies, whole grains, and essential vitamins and minerals will go a long way toward minimizing your pain. Refraining from smoking or drinking alcohol can make a positive impact as well. Here’s a good one—ask a loved one for a foot massage! This gets the blood flowing and relieves pain, plus it’s a great way to relax.
