Cervical Dystonia

We would suggest the following vitamins and supplements:

Vitamin B12:  Helps to relax tense muscles. It keeps nerve cells healthy by helping to form the protective sheath of the cell.  It repairs nerve and muscle damage, aids cellular reproduction and improves your ability to walk, talk, write and swallow. Foods: sardines, lamb, turkey, corned beef, eggs, ready-to-eat cereals, ground beef, hard cheese.

Vitamin D: Helps with nerve communication. Relaxes tense muscles and carries blood and oxygen to the nerves and muscles. It eases muscular pain and discomfort. Repairs damage to muscles and nerves. Reduces inflammation, works with cellular repair. This will help improve body posture, muscle tone and speech. Foods: catfish, cod liver oil, molluscs, shrimp, soy and fortified milk, eggs, Swiss cheese, liver.

Vitamin E: An antioxidant that protects your body from viral infections, toxins and pollutants that can trigger dystonia. Repairs nerve and muscle damage and helps with inflammation. It transports oxygen to nerves and muscles helping with slurred speech and muscle spasms. Food: pine nuts, almonds, spinach, sunflower seeds, broccoli, tomatoes.

Magnesium: A mineral that promotes muscle relaxation and improves the nervous system. By supporting healthy nerves and muscles, it regulates muscular contractions and spasms, enhances muscle tone, and repairs nerve and muscle damage, stimulating the healing process.

Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: coconut, sweet almond, grape seed for example. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 6 drops of Lavender and 4 drops of Frankincense. Rub the mixture over the body, especially neck, shoulders and chest, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 3 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Frankincense. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **

** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **

** Frankincense – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, if any bleeding disorders or on anticoagulants. Avoid with children below 5 and caution below 8 **
