Do you struggle with tingles and numbness, tics and spasms, tinnitus, vibrations, eye floaters, body pain, vertigo, burning skin, anxiety, tightness of the chest, brain fog, and dizziness? These, and many more mystery symptoms, are connected to neurological and central nervous system issues.
The symptoms can be frustratingly inconsistent, and well-meaning practitioners can sometimes misread the signs your body is displaying and prescribe an ineffective protocol. No one should have to spend their time trying things that will never work! Below I will detail many of the mystery symptoms that signal neurological issues and the foods and supplements that can offer you healing support.
Tics, twitches, and muscle spasms, which are all connected to spasming nerves, are signs of neurological issues. If you are experiencing dizziness or vertigo, your vagus nerve might be inflamed from neurotoxins from viruses. The vagus nerve runs from the brain, through the neck, past the throat, and down into the chest. Other symptoms linked to the vagus nerve include weakness of the limbs, a fluttering heart, issues with swallowing, or trouble taking a deep breath.
Other neurological symptoms you might experience include: tingling or numbness in the hands or feet, buzzing, ringing, or humming in the ears, cold hands or feet, feelings of poor circulation, jaw stiffness, gums burning, restless legs, pains in the neck, or a strange gnawing sensation in the stomach. Inflamed nerves like the vagus, phrenic, trigeminal, and sciatic play a huge role in these neurological symptoms.
Some people struggle with digesting food because they actually feel it move through the gut all the way to the colon. This particular symptom might wrongly be blamed on poor digestion, anxiety or IBS, but what you’re truly feeling is thousands of sensitive nerves coming from different places like the vagus nerve, phrenic nerve, and spine that connect to the intestinal tract, stomach, and colon. So, what appears to be a digestive issue is actually neurological.
Some might also experience what I termed neurological fatigue, which is different than adrenal fatigue. If it feels like a struggle forcing your legs to walk, your head feels heavy and foggy, or just crawling out of bed and standing up seems impossible, then you might be experiencing neurological fatigue which can come with Epstein-Barr virus and is a serious type of chronic fatigue. Not all neurological fatigue is this severe however. Someone can experience milder symptoms from neurological fatigue also.
A large amount of neurological problems are caused by Epstein-Barr, shingles and its many strains that have yet to even be discovered. Whether you have Epstein-Barr causing fibromyalgia or shingles causing neuralgia, your goal moving forward is to restore the nervous system. It’s about doing everything in your power to strengthen and fortify it, and this can be done!
Causes of Neurological Symptoms
There are some specific causes that can create a sensitive, weakened nervous system. The first is neurotoxins. Viruses such as Epstein-Barr, shingles, HHV-6, and others release neurotoxins which can cause a host of different sensitivities, symptoms and conditions connected to the nervous system. If any underlying viral issues are not addressed, your nervous system can become hypersensitive.
Toxic heavy metals and toxins are a second cause. Mercury is extremely harmful and other metals such as aluminum, lead, arsenic, copper, and nickel wreak havoc as well. An alloy of these metals in the brain can oxidize over time, short circuiting neurotransmitters as they run through the neurons. Imagine the neuron is like a stream and the neurotransmitters are like the living water rushing through. Heavy metals are what block and destroy both the stream and the pulsing energy running through it. Heavy metals diminish neurotransmitter and neuron function, breakdown electrical impulses, and can cause seizures if present in the brain and nervous system for extended periods of time.
Chemical sensitivities can also occur when chemicals interact with an already weak, sensitive central nervous system. Symptoms of a sensitive central nervous system might include forgetfulness, word misplacement, bafflement for no reason, confusion, feeling easily rattled or puzzled, brain fog, disorientation, or a feeling of disconnection. Anyone who experiences anxiety or depression has a sensitive central nervous system. Exposure to toxic chemicals can worsen these symptoms and create new symptoms for someone who is already very sensitive.
A few more triggers are aspartame, which damages the neurological system and can even cause seizures in certain people. Mold can be a serious trigger as well. Mold doesn't cause neurological issues but can be a trigger to another underlying cause. Stress and emotional hardships can also be triggers and have a serious negative impact on the central nervous system because of the corrosive adrenaline released when we are under stress and going through emotional hardships. Foods that can trigger neurological symptoms include eggs, gluten, and dairy.
An important fact to know as you begin to heal is that your brain, central nervous system and nerves are fueled by glucose and mineral salts. That means your brain and nervous system run on naturally salty vegetables and the glucose from fruits! Do not be fooled by a current trend that inaccurately claims your brain runs on fat. The truth is, to heal any neurological issues, you must provide an abundance of sugars and mineral salts to your system, not through corn syrup, cane sugar, and table salt, but through fresh fruits, leafy greens, herbs, wild foods, and vegetables.
Wild blueberries are an incredible food and can help restore brain tissue. Drinking straight celery juice is another powerhouse addition to include daily. Coconut water is a great source of electrolytes and can be beneficial. Spinach, romaine, green leaf lettuce, red leaf lettuce, butter lettuce, and mâche are also excellent healing foods that are loaded with mineral salts. You can add in seaweeds, such as dulse and nori. For glucose, bring in more bananas, papayas, raspberries, blackberries, mangoes, apples, pears, dates, apricots, peaches, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, yams, or regular potatoes. Incorporating the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox smoothie daily is a helpful tool to support and assist your body in removing toxic heavy metals.
Healing Supplements and Teas
Some beneficial supplements include B-12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, licorice root, lemon balm, 5-MTHF, and magnesium glycinate. Certain herbal teas, such as nettle leaf tea, raspberry leaf tea, and lemon balm tea are great to drink as well. The Medical Medium Thyme Tea and Thyme Water are antiviral and would be excellent additions to your healing regimen.
Rebuilding Your Central Nervous System
It takes time to rebuild your central nervous system but never give up on your body’s incredible power to heal! Feeding your body glucose, mineral salts, the right supplements, and a huge dose of self-compassion can move you forward towards greater health and vitality for your nervous system, brain and body as a whole.
