Back Pain? Try These Natural Solutions
If you’ve ever suffered from back pain, you’re in good company. More than 80% of adults have experienced back pain at least once in their lives.
And I guess that for most of you, it’s been far more than once.
But before you reach for that ibuprofen (again), try one of these natural remedies instead.
You might be surprised by the results.
It’s really no wonder your back is such a hot spot for pain.
Your back muscles and spine are the literal backbone of your body’s movements. They support a lot of your weight, and you use those muscles for sitting, standing, walking, and everything in between.
So it’s really no wonder that upwards of 26 million Americans experience debilitating back pain.
It’s also not surprising that most people turn to OTC pain meds like Advil and Aleve looking for relief.
But before popping yet another pill, try one of these proven remedies instead.
I often talk about the benefits of curcumin for pain relief—and it’s just as effective for back pain, too.
Treating spinal discs with curcumin can reduce inflammation compounds by 80%, and to reduce cartilage-damaging enzyme activity by 70%.
In other words, it gets to the root cause of the pain.
The combination of Boswellia and curcumin is MORE EFFECTIVE than the pain-relieving drug Celebrex at reducing lower back pain and increasing walking distances.
Speaking of being better than prescription drugs… white willow is just as effective at relieving back pain as the drug Vioxx.
The big difference? White willow never killed anyone the way Vioxx did (which is why it was pulled from the market).
White willow is so effective that it’s nicknamed “nature’s aspirin”
This natural herb can be more effective than Vioxx at reducing pain. Studies show that it can reduce inflammation, improve flexibility, and increase hyaluronic acid, which helps cushion your joints.
