Trigeminal Neuralgia

I was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia about ten years ago. This is a condition which causes periods of intense, stabbing, electric shock-like pain to various locations on the left side of my face and head. Traditional medicine’s means of treating this condition is through medications that slow the function of the nerves that cause the pain (and also bring side-effects that are often more debilitating than the pain itself).
