7 Foods to Help Manage Neuropathy Symptoms


couple sitting at a table, eating a healthy meal together

Alright, folks, let's cut to the chase. Maintaining a balanced diet isn't just about staying healthy overall—it can also play a crucial role in managing neuropathy symptoms. By keeping your blood sugar levels in check and working to reduce inflammation, you can help alleviate discomfort associated with nerve issues.

Now neuropathy isn't something you can just wave a magic wand at and make disappear (unfortunately). But I've found that making a few tweaks to what's on your plate can help keep those symptoms in check and slow down their pesky progression.

So, what's on the menu for today?


1. 🌱 Asparagus

Asparagus is not only a seasonal delight but also packed with folate and vitamin E, making it a double whammy for nerve health. Roast it, grill it, or toss it into a salad for a taste of spring and some nerve-soothing goodness.


2. 🍓 Strawberries

Juicy, sweet, and oh-so-delicious, strawberries are the epitome of springtime goodness. And guess what? They're also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which can help protect those nerves from damage.


3. 🌼 Artichokes

These tender hearts are loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants, making them a powerhouse for nerve health. Steam 'em, bake 'em, or toss 'em into a dip for a tasty treat that's good for your nerves.


4. 🥗 Radishes

Not only are they low in calories, but they're also packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, helping to protect your nerves and reduce inflammation. Slice 'em up for a crunchy addition to salads or enjoy 'em with a dollop of hummus for a tasty snack.


5. 🥦Broccoli

Don't turn your nose up at this green veggie, mate! Broccoli is brimming with magnesium, along with vitamin C and antioxidants. Magnesium plays a vital role in nerve function and can help alleviate neuropathic symptoms. So, steam it, roast it, or toss it in a stir-fry for a tasty way to boost your nerve health.


6. 🥬 Spinach

Popeye's favorite leafy green is back on the menu, and for good reason! Spinach is bursting with folate and vitamin E, both of which are essential for nerve health. Whether you're tossing it into a salad or blending it into a smoothie, spinach is a versatile springtime superstar that your nerves will thank you for.


7. 🐟 Salmon

Slip some salmon onto the barbie and let the springtime festivities begin! This fish is swimming with omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce inflammation and ease nerve pain.


And there you have it, folks! Seven Aussie-approved springtime foods to help you tackle neuropathy symptoms like a true blue legend. Remember, mate, managing neuropathy is all about finding what works best for you, so don't be afraid to mix and match these tasty treats and see what gives you the most relief.

**Talk to your doctor before making any changes to your diet. It's important to work with a healthcare provider and a registered dietitian to develop a personalized nutrition plan that meets your individual needs.

Mark, thank you for sharing the foods that are good for me to eat to help with my neuropathy pain. Some I love and some I’ve never had in my diet. But I think there is plenty I enjoy. Thank you so much for the Outback series. I love the roll on best. For the past 3 years, it has given me the most relief from this pain from h—. I have been thru every medical procedure you can think of and there has been nothing that has helped like Outback. Thank you so much.

Hey, Bonita! Tuna is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties and can help alleviate nerve pain, just like salmon. So, whether you prefer the taste of salmon or tuna, both can be excellent additions to your diet for managing neuropathy symptoms.

Mark, can you use Tuna instead of salmon.
