Use these four natural treatments to curb back pain
Herbal treatment#1: Valerian Root
According to Chet Cunningham author of the Sciatica Report, “valerian root acts as a mild muscle relaxant and tranquilizer. Some people with back pain find it a very effective sleep-aid, helping to relax the back and allow for a restful night’s sleep.”
Valerian root can be taken as a tea or in tablet form.
Herbal treatment#2: Devil’s Claw
Devil’s Claw is an effective pain reliever. In fact, one German study, consisting of 109 people suffering with low back pain proves that in some cases the herb Devil’s Claw can relieve back pain.
Half of the study participants received a placebo and the other half of the group was given Devil’s Claw. All participants were also allowed to take any prescription pain relievers they were on as needed during the course of the study.
After one month, nine in the Devil’s Claw group were reportedly pain free while only one in the placebo group was pain free.
Herbal treatment#3: Chamomile
You may already be familiar with the relaxing effect of chamomile tea.
Herbal treatment#4: Bromelain
“Bromelain is a natural enzyme found in pineapples. Some people find that this enzyme is effective at reducing swelling and inflammation. It may help reduce your back pain,” says Cunningham.
All these herbal treatments are available in your local health shop. As always, consult your doctor before your treat yourself.
