Bring Sciatica Pain to a HALT in MINUTES!
Sciatica pain can be crippling.
It causes a sharp pain that radiates from your lower spine, through your buttocks, and down your leg.
Some say it feels like an electric shock.
Bedrest and hot/cold therapies can be effective. Physical therapy can help you learn to take pressure off of your sciatic nerve.
But if you want real relief, real fast… there’s an alternative approach that can provide relief in as little as 15 minutes.
CBD is finally gaining acceptance for its powerful medicinal properties—and it’s about time.
Studies of a drug that contains both CBD (marijuana’s non-psychoactive component) and THC (the psychoactive component) have shown that it is effective in treating neuropathic pain associated with multiple sclerosis.
Neuropathic pain is a shooting, burning pain that’s typically caused by nerve damage or a malfunctioning nervous system.
What does this have to do with sciatica?
Both are causes of neuropathic pain.
Another study confirmed the ability of this CBD/THC combo to treat neuropathic pain in MS, and a third study showed its ability to treat central and peripheral neuropathic pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer.
But not everyone is comfortable using the THC component of cannabis… and the good news is you don’t have to.
Plenty of other studies have demonstrated the benefits of CBD alone for combatting pain and inflammation. (I’ve told you about this before.)
A study of rats with arthritis found that a CBD gel significantly reduced pain and inflammation. And a review of the medical literature concluded that CBD poses significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities.
This is important, since inflammation plays a role in sciatica pain.
Other studies have confirmed CBD’s anti-inflammatory activities, with studies showing it reduces inflammation in acute lung injuries, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation of the gut, and neural inflammation related to Alzheimer’s disease.
There are numerous ways to use CBD for neuropathic pain (whether from sciatica, MS, or something else), including oils, capsules, or topicals.
Oils (placed under the tongue with a dropper) and topicals (rubbed directly at the site of pain) work in as little as 15 minutes, while capsules take an hour or more.
If you’re considering using CBD, talk to your doctor first, as it could potentially interfere with other drugs you may be taking.

There are two words that send shivers down everyone’s spine: Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a condition that’s characterized by a buildup of toxic beta-amyloid plaques in your brain. They interfere with the communication between neurons in your brain, and they lead to the death of neurons. It’s a devastating double-whammy. But a recent study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that nature’s “green secret” could be...
Overall, cancer is on the decline. That’s the good news. But the bad news is that it could be declining MUCH faster than it actually is. Nearly 10 million people still die every year from this disease. But there’s one simple step you can take — starting today — to help keep you from being one of those 10 million. It’ll help you beat the “biggest...
Whether you have type 2 diabetes or not, you should be paying attention to your blood sugar levels. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, high blood sugar levels can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, nerve problems, and more — even if you don’t have diabetes. Fortunately, you don’t have to swear off...
COVID-19 is finally on the decline — and it’s about time. As we speak, mask-wearing mandates are being lifted in many states. But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. In fact, it means you need to be taking even more steps on your own to make sure you’re protected. Like loading up on one key nutrient that could decrease your risk of severe complications if you ever do get COVID-19. A...
Alzheimer’s is devastating for the patient AND for his or her loved ones. Although there is no cure, many recent studies have offered a ray of hope for everyone affected by this disease — whether you’re the patient or their loved one. In fact, in one recent study, researchers identified a natural compound that can reverse some of the most devastating memory effects of Alzheimer’s. It’s one of the biggest breakthroughs...
Let’s face it, we all know people who “look great for their age.” Well, here’s a crazy idea: What if we took our biological age and threw it out the window. Because frankly, instead of accepting aging as a part of life, I’d rather focus on vitality at any age (NOT vitality despite my age!). There are plenty of lifestyle change you can...
Make no mistake about it: Medicine is big business. I wish most doctors and medical organizations made decisions based on the patient’s best interests — as opposed to the bottom line… But too often that’s not the case. What does that mean for you? It means you could be counseled to get a procedure or a surgery that you DON’T need. Because let’s face it, mainstream...
When it comes to COVID-19, you should be doing whatever it takes to lower your risk — especially if you’re an older adult. According to the CDC, 8 out of 10 COVID-19 deaths have been in people over 65. And, compared to people 5-17 years old, the rate of death in folks from 65-74 is 1300 TIMES HIGHER. That’s not a typo. But whatever your age, you can do...
There’s no doubt that what you eat impacts your physical health. But food’s impact on your mental and emotional wellbeing is just as powerful. There are plenty of reasons for this connection. A big one is because your gut contains neurons, and serotonin (the neurotransmitter that’s involved in depression and anxiety) is particularly abundant in your gut. Personally, I find that fascinating. Plus,...
You know by now that type 2 diabetes can increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations, and much more. But if you “only” have pre-diabetes, you might be tempted to think that you’re in the clear. Not so fast. Why? Because a recent study found out that these hidden dangers of pre-diabetes could be just as deadly as diabetes itself. Prediabetes is considered...
