How do we provide comfort to our seniors in pain?

It has been 5 weeks that I and other caregivers are taking care of a 92 year old with Dementia, leg and knee pain and depression. After 5 weeks, she grimaces less and complain less of pain as we provide comforting words and massages to her. She likes the hugs and comforting words as she lives alone , feeling like abandoned for many years.

We use all kinds of massage oil from coconut oil with fresh ginger and turmeric powder to Desitin, as she is bed-ridden and can be prone to bed sores. Sunlight is very important to her to remove her blues and move her from bed to wheelchair with exercise. It warms her body and she loves to be in the sun.

We are hoping to help her live for 10 more years as she is unmedicated. We cook gourmet meals from healthy soups, scrambled eggs with lots of onions and garlic. She does not like to eat sugar and eats in small servings.

Now she is triving and able to live with less pain in her knees and legs as we massage her 3x a day. Call 408-854-1883 for loving caregivers who massage your seniors and provide real comfort, free from pain and uses holistic care.

We ensure she has turmeric and ginger capsules and Vitamin B complex. We also have calcium and magnesium and melatonin to help her sleep. She has no constipation.

Vitamin B complex helps relieve pain.

Benfothiamine – Benfotiamine reduces elevated levels of intracellular glucose and alters the body’s biochemical response to the toxic breakdown products of excess sugar. It is helpful for those suffering from neuropathy because B vitamin is crucial for repairing nerve damage.
Riboflavin – Our bodies need vitamin B2 or riboflavin to help break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It plays a vital role in maintaining the body’s energy supply. It also helps in the regeneration of glutathione; an enzyme that rids the body of free radicals alleviating glucose related stress conditions and chronic fatigue.
Rutin – Rutin is a bioflavanoid with strong antioxidant properties.
It also nutritionally supports the pancreas and helps other B vitamins do their job, making an all rounded dietary supplement to boost nerve function and regeneration.
Vitamin B6 – B6 is essential for the proper function of sugars, fats, and proteins in the body. It is also required for the proper growth and development of the brain, nerves, skin, and many other parts of the body. So vital to your health!
Vitamin B12 – Is needed for healthy nerve cell activity and DNA replication that is found in clinically advised amounts in Neurabic. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is possible for the body to develop a vitamin B12 deficiency. This deficiency is usually reported with symptoms of fatigue.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) – Involved in metabolic pathways that influence weight control and plays a crucial role in regulating energy metabolism and metabolizing fats and carbohydrates. Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it helps the body use other vitamins, particularly B2 or riboflavin.
Acetyl – L – Carnitine – Used by your body to support healthy nerve fibers, it works in alleviating symptoms, particularly nerve related pain and pain from touch. Acetyl-L-Caritine also helps the body turn fat into energy.
Gingko Biloba – Has amazing qualities exhibiting anti-diabetic activities in a variety of clinical studies. Ginkgo has shown to help people who experience leg pain when they walk due to poor bloodflow, allowing them to walk farther. Ginkgo biloba has been used medicinally for thousands of years which has remarkable healing virtues that have been recorded as far back as 2800B.C
Choline – Choline (2-hydroxy-N,N,N-trimethylethanaminium) is a water soluble nutrient that is closely related to the B complex of Vitamins. While your body naturally makes a small amount of this compound, we require external sources from our diet and supplements in order to meet our daily needs.
Inositol – When combined with choline, Inositol helps in relieving mild symptoms of hypertension and improves nerve transmission. This is particularly important for patients suffering from neuropathy having damaged nerves thus interfering with critical signals causing considerable pain and discomfort.
Niacin – Niacin, also called vitamin B-3, is a vitamin your body needs for a variety of functions, especially the metabolism of energy from food. Niacin is water-soluble, so your body cannot store it and you need to make sure you get enough every day. According to the Linus Pauling Institute, a niacin deficiency is called pellagra, and it can result in nerve damage that causes neurological symptoms. Without enough niacin, your nerves are unable to maintain healthy functions, leaving your nervous system susceptible to damage. A chronic deficiency in niacin leading to widespread nerve damage can result in a variety of symptoms in addition to peripheral neuropathy symptoms, including headaches, fatigue and memory loss.
