Diet Plan for Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a condition in which trigeminal nerve is compressed or inflamed. Trigeminal nerve supplies sensation to face, and other parts of the head. According to Ayurveda, Vata – aggravating foods can cause and be responsible for this problem, so avoiding them and consuming a diet full of anti-oxidants, fats, and the food items that can balance the Vata Dosha will be very beneficial to manage Trigeminal Neuralgia.
