The pain and discomfort can affect your quality of life by making it difficult for you to sleep, walk, or take part in the activities you love.
In today’s blog, we’re sharing some of our top tips for all-natural pain relief of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Keep reading to learn more!
1. Soak in a warm bath
When you are experiencing pain from neuropathy, soaking in a warm bath can offer some much needed relief. Not only is the warm water relaxing for your entire body, but it can also boost your circulation—helping to relieve the pain and release the tension.
2. Practice relaxation techniques and exercise
It’s important for everyone to partake in regular exercise in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but it can be extra beneficial for people who suffer from neuropathy.
Not only will it help to stabilize your blood sugar, but exercise will also increase the blood flow to your feet and hands. Plus, the release of endorphins in your body will provide you with some much needed stress relief and will help to boost your mood.
Give yoga and meditation a try to work on reducing your stress, and improving your strength and flexibility. Getting regular massages will also help to release tension, increase blood flow, and reduce stress.
3. Apply essential oils to help reduce pain
Certain essential oils, such as Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus Oil, are known to have powerful inflammation and pain reducing properties for all-natural pain relief.*
Tea Tree Oil is a potent anti-inflammatory and Vanilla is a natural vasodilator, which means that the Vanilla opens up your blood vessels and allows the Tea Tree Oil to penetrate.* This combination extinguishes any inflammation in its path with a cumulative effect.
Blue Malle Eucalyptus, which is the most potent strain of Eucalyptus, stands alone as a pain reliever. In fact, studies have shown that even low levels of cineole Eucalyptus can reduce inflammation by cytokine inhibition.* But, Blue Malle has the highest cineole content of any Eucalyptus in the world!
Eucalyptus Oil works faster than the Tea Tree Oil, so the immediate pain relief you experience with Outback Pain Relief is from the Eucalyptus Oil and the long-term relief is from the Tea Tree Oil.* The inflammation relief from the Tea Tree Oil actually gets better the more often you use it.
Lastly, a special strain of Olive Oil is added to bind all the ingredients together. And, that’s it!
