Backache, Back Pain, Lumbago
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND
Pain in the back, often relates to a lack of minerals, acid
pH and/or poor kidney function. Some of these remedies
are for topical use for immediate pain relief and others work
internally for more long-term relief.
When a person has severe pain in the back, several things
may be to blame. An over acid condition of the tissues
may be resulting in mineral depletion and muscle spasms.
Strengthening the kidneys in their ability to flush acid waste
using KB-C and drinking more pure water is often helpful.
Alkalizing the diet by consuming more fresh fruits and vegetables and less meat and grains will also help.
Some people may find that they are mineral deficient and
need more minerals to create greater structural strength in
the spine. Ionicl minerals, Skeletal Strength, Calcium w/Magnesium, Collatrim, PLS II and Herbal CA have all been
effective in some cases.
For immediate pain relief apply lobelia extract along both
sides of the spine and massage the muscles to help them
Follow this with an application of Tei Fu Essential
Oils and massage some more. This helps the spine relax and
draws oxygen and nutrients to the area.
II may also help relieve inflammation that
is associated with the pain.
Spraying Nature's Fresh along
the spine can also relieve inflammation, especially when the
cause of the back pain is problems with the spinal disks.
Bodywork can also be helpful for backache. Try stretching
exercises, yoga, massage therapy and/or chiropractic care.
Maintaining good posture is also essential to a healthy back.
