Garlic Milk Works Like Magic As A Home Remedy Against Sciatica And Back Pain
With approximately eight in every ten Americans suffering from back pain at some point in life, back pain costing around $150 billion per year in America alone, and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide, almost everyone is either looking for themselves or knows someone looking to ease their back pain.
It’s important to note that back pain isn’t a one-size-fits-all problem; it can range from acute to chronic, mild to severe, and present as a sharp pain to a dull ache. However back pain presents itself, there’s always the quest to make it stop. Have you heard of garlic milk to treat back pain?
The Search To End Back Pain
Spine treatments are performed in America to the tune of billions of dollars. These promise to reduce, if not eliminate, back pain. For many, however, these treatments do little to ease the pain and solve the problem. For some, the treatments can even cause more damage than existed before. In fact, treatments such as ultrasound, spinal fusion, TENS machines, spinal injections, acupuncture, and disc replacement have such lacking evidence to support their effectiveness that they’ve been removed from NICE’s (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines.
Non-surgical solution’s offered by orthopedists, chiropractors, and other medical professionals often just involve recommendations for exercise and massage to soothe the pain, not solve the cause of the pain. University of Waterloo professor of Spine Biomechanics Dr. Stuart McGill says that many professional back pain treatments are aimed in this one-size-fits-all manner, which doesn’t take patient individuality into account and doesn’t actually target the underlying cause of the pain.
Sciatica Gets The Shortest End Of The Stick
A lack of effective and proper treatment for sciatica is even more apparent. Sciatica is a type of lower back pain that usually radiates down the backside of one leg. It’s most often the result of a bone spur on the spine, a herniated disc, or spinal stenosis. All of these back issues can compress the sciatic nerve and cause intense and debilitating pain, inflammation, and numbness in the affected limb. For years, doctors have searched for a treatment for sciatica without any measure of success. In mild cases, the pain usually subsides after a few days or weeks with anti-inflammatory medications and pain medications. Chronic sciatica usually results in a surgery recommendation from your doctor.
If you’re not ready to take the leap of surgery and don’t want to take pain relievers, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, and other medications commonly prescribed to manage sciatica, there are alternative solutions. Garlic milk is one such solution.
Garlic Milk To Relieve Sciatica
It doesn’t exactly sound like a beverage of choice. However, this sciatica remedy has been around for centuries in ancient Ayurveda practices and has quite a positive track record in treating back pain.
Garlic improves circulation and cardiovascular health to get more blood flow where it needs to go. It strengthens the immune system and reduces inflammation responses. It’s been studied in everything from cancer prevention to curing infections. Combine these potent properties with the calcium, protein, and Vitamin B12 from milk for a quick and simple remedy that doesn’t have the risks and side effects of other back pain treatments. You’ll need to drink garlic milk once per day. Do remember that garlic is a natural blood thinner. Always consult with your physician if you’re already taking a blood thinner.
