Nerve damage (caused by illness or injury) can be repaired by eating foods that support the immune system. These foods contain vitamins (in particular A, B, C and D), minerals and antioxidants. Daily consumption of foods that build the body's immune system not only repairs nerve damage but promotes overall good health.

Support of the Thymus

Assisting in warding off unhealthy viruses attacking the body, vitamin A also supports the thymus gland, which is part of the immune system. Oily fish such as salmon contains this essential vitamin as well as another important element called Omega 3, which also contributes to healing nerve damage. Calve's liver, dairy foods and carrots contain elements that convert to vitamin A in the body.

Vitamin-B Foods

White blood cells protect the body against disease-causing invasions; vitamin B promotes white-blood-cell function. Whole-grain cereals are rich in this essential nutrient, as is brown rice, soybeans and calves' liver. Incorporating one of these foods into a meal on a daily basis assures optimum benefits for healing nerve damage.

Sources of Vitamin C

Most fruits and vegetables contain significant amounts of vitamin C, which supports the body's entire immune system. Moreover, green tea contains 500 times the amount of vitamin C as a single-cup serving of fruits or vegetables.

The Vitamin-E Connection

Certain types of white blood cells produce antibodies that adhere to certain unwanted viruses and infections attacking the body. Vitamin E helps produce antibodies and is effective in boosting the immune system as well. Vitamin E is found in nuts, seeds and vegetable oils.

Salt of the Sea

The human body requires 0.198gr of salt per day. Information- and communication-processing nerve cells need salt on a continuous basis. Repairing nerve damage using unprocessed sea salt helps stimulate injured or diseased cells and adds to a healthy immune system. (Regular table salt is eliminated by the body because of its sodium chloride content. Because of this, the filtering and digestive organs are overworked, and cells are depleted of water.) Natural sea salt works with the body rather than battling it.
