Back pain is one of the most common problems that people experience and it is the leading cause of why people miss work. It tends to sneak up on us and sometimes, it can happen for reasons that we don’t even know why. That being said, about 10% of the population of the United States experiences some form of back problem and if you’re in that number, you are probably interested in getting some relief.
Speaking of relief, people in the United States spend billions of dollars on treatments that promise to reduce the pain or perhaps even eliminate it. That includes spine treatments that are somewhat invasive. The reality of the situation, however, many treatments are actually worse than the problem you are dealing with in the first place. Another problem is the many drugs that are often as the first line of treatment.
Dr. Stuart Mcgill, a professor of spine biometrics at the University of Waterloo 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.”
Some of the treatments are done so often that they become familiar to most of us, such as spinal injections, fusion, disc replacement, ultrasound, and acupuncture. As a result of a lack of evidence that they actually help, they have been removed from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines.
For those who suffer from sciatica, the lack of proper treatment is also a problem. It often affects only one side of the body and is a debilitating problem that is often associated with a herniated disc, stenosis or a bone spur.
People who have sciatica experience pain, inflammation and numbness in the affected area. Mild cases will sometimes go away on their own but if it is chronic, surgery may be considered. If you are not quite ready to go under the knife, however, there is a natural remedy that may help.
I have seen the suffering that people go through with sciatica personally. It took a lot of looking but when you find something as good as this natural remedy, it’s a good idea to hold onto it.
I’m talking about garlic milk.
It may not sound very good but there are benefits associated with it. Garlic can improve your cardiovascular health, strengthen the immune system, prevent cancer, reduce inflammation and cure infections.
Combining the nutrients in milk, such as vitamin B12, protein and calcium will help your body to feel even better.
Garlic milk is gaining in popularity, thanks to the fact that it really works. It helps to reduce inflammation and it is easy to make. Since it is 100% natural, you don’t need to worry about side effects.
Here’s how to make it:
– 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
– 250 ml of milk
– Honey, to taste
1. Place the crushed garlic cloves in the milk in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil. Make sure the heat stays on low.
2. Stir the pot often to prevent the milk from burning to the bottom
3. Once the mixture has come to a boil, take it off the heat and let it cool
4. Add honey to sweeten the drink, then pour it in a cup and enjoy.
Garlic is a natural blood thinner, so it is advised that you only drink this once a day. Combine with your other natural remedies and stretches and you will soon see a huge improvement.
