One of the more frustrating problems we may have to experience in
life is a difficulty with back pain. It is something that just seems to
stick around and it can affect your quality of life in so many different
ways. If you experience back pain, you have already probably tried
about every natural treatment you could think of. When you consider the
fact that back pain affects about 10% of all people in the United
States, trying a natural treatment is certainly not out of the question.
natural treatments, Americans will spend tens of thousands of dollars
on spine treatments that claim to be able to eliminate or reduce the
pain. Unfortunately, many of those medical treatments don’t work. There
is even a specific type of issue that is known as failed spine surgery!
you see a doctor for back pain, they are likely to tell you to do
certain exercises and they may prescribe some painkillers. Those are
just temporary solutions to a more serious problem.
A professor of
spine biomechanics, Dr. Stuart Magill, says: “So many treatments show
up as ineffective is that they are used in an indiscriminate one-size
fits-all way, rarely targeted on the underlying problem.”
probably could talk about many different spine treatments, including
injections, fusion surgery, TENS machines, acupuncture, ultrasound and
chiropractic care. This is really only scratching the surface. The
problem is, there’s not any strong evidence that supports the
effectiveness of those treatments.
If you suffer from sciatica,
the lack of a treatment is even more of a problem. Sciatica typically
affects one side of the body and the symptoms can be debilitating.
According to the Mayo Clinic, this issue typically occurs when “a
herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine (spinal
stenosis) compresses part of the nerve.”
Sciatica can cause severe pain, numbness and inflammation in the area of the herniated disc and down the legs.
you suffer from a mild case of sciatica, it may be possible that it
will go away. When you deal with chronic sciatica, surgery may sometimes
be suggested. If you aren’t yet ready to go under the knife, however,
natural remedies may give you the relief to help you get over the hump.
natural solution that has helped many people is garlic milk. I know
that it sounds kind of disgusting, but if you have been taking
medication and doing exercises with no relief in sight, it may be just
what you need.
When you consider all of the benefits of garlic, it
really brings things into focus. It is strengthening to the immune
system, our cardiovascular system, cures infections and can even prevent
cancer. It also has the benefit of reducing inflammation, which is
vital for those who suffer from sciatica.
When you combine the
benefits of garlic with the nutrients in milk, such as vitamin B12,
protein and calcium, you have a one-two punch that can knock out the
pain you are experiencing.
Garlic milk is becoming a very popular
treatment for those who have back pain, including sciatica. With extreme
anti-inflammatory properties, it can help you to be more comfortable.
Best yet, it is easy to make and there are no negative side effects from
this all natural remedy.

drink more than one serving per day because it does thin the blood. Use
