"I have several large trigger points in my neck and shoulder area. I have had a couple of massages and have done a lot of stretching in those areas but nothing is helping. Do you have any suggestions about nutrients or healing foods that may help to reduce these trigger points? A couple of the ones in my neck feel like they are pinching a nerve."

Your problem is probably not related to nutrition, so the only supplements that might help are the anti-inflammatory ones. For information about these, reference our arthritis, carpel tunnel, and Bell's palsy articles. With your random problems being spread over a region, in a way that mimics pinched nerves, tells us that your issue is almost certainly a spinal misalignment. We're betting that a good chiropractor could have you back to normal in about 10 minutes. The good news is that we have found that the most trustworthy chiropractors tend to be the ones who charge the least. The best ones try to use their hands for everything, and only resort to using equipment as a last resort. We have visited one in the past, since our lengthy writing sessions are prone to causing us back problems. He only charges $30.00 (U.S.) per visit, to give you an idea of what to expect. To contrast this with what a person can expect from the other side, a regular doctor wanted to surgically replace several of Sarah's vertebrae and about half of her ribs with metal plates, to transform her into some half human and half cyborg thing. It would have left her permanently crippled.
