You have sciatica.
Which means you’re fighting those excruciatingly sharp, shooting pains that run from your lower back right down into your legs.
Many folks rate sciatica pain among the worst they’ve ever felt.
Heck, at this point, you’re a hardened, battle-savvy, pain warrior. And you probably think you’ve felt the worst of what sciatica can dish out by now.
Well, friend, I’ve got some bad news for you today. New research has exposed the TRUE toll of that sciatic pain.
And it turns out things could get a WHOLE lot worse.
But don’t worry. I’m not about to let that happen to you. I’m here today with THREE WAYS to end that pain and get back to feeling like your old self again.
And you won’t need to pop a single painkilling drug to do it.
The REAL toll of sciatica revealed
Up to one in four seniors are battling sciatica right now. But, as the new study reveals, that’s really only the beginning of the fight.
This painful condition can DOUBLE your risk of a slow decline into overall poor health. And when you stop to think about it’s really not hard to see why…
That sciatica pain, to begin with, can make you beyond miserable. But it’s not JUST the pain itself, either. The study finds it can double your risk of depression too.
And when pain and depression mix, you’ve got a real mess on your hands. Because suddenly, it becomes harder to get out and even move. And THAT sends your risk for chronic health problems soaring.
People who stay home too much even have a higher risk of death.
3 drug-free solutions to DEFEAT sciatic pain
But you can ease the pain and end that decline today, starting with these three, drug-free sciatica pain fixes…
1. CURCUMIN: The most common cause of sciatica is when the sciatic nerve that starts just above your butt gets squeezed, often by something like a herniated disc.
But that part alone isn’t the primary source of pain. In fact, many people are living with herniated discs and other back issues for years and don’t feel a thing.
It’s what happens next that’s a problem. The squeezed nerve becomes inflamed, eventually triggering inflammation down the entire leg.
Many folks turn to anti-inflammatory drugs, taking on all the risks that come with them, such as bleeding. But you’ve got another option.
Curcumin, which comes from the spice turmeric, is one of nature’s most potent inflammation-fighters. This spice extract is shown to help fight all kinds of chronic pain, including sciatica.
To get the most from your curcumin, look for a supplement that includes piperine. This black-pepper extract will help your body absorb more of the nutrient.
2. STRETCHING: Never underestimate the power of a good stretch when it is done well and regularly.
Several stretches can help beat sciatica pain. But one of the best for this condition is a hamstring stretch (which makes sense since the sciatic nerve runs down your legs).
Stand in front of a staircase or chair. Gently place one leg straight out in front and onto the step or chair so to your toes are pointing straight up.
Grab your toes and gently bend forward for 20-30 seconds without locking your knee. Then, repeat for the other side. That’s it. You’re done.
3. ACUPUNCTURE: Tell the mainstream “experts” that you’re going in for acupuncture, and they’ll shake their heads in disgust.
“That junk doesn’t work!” they’ll insist. Meanwhile, those same so-called experts continue to push drugs and other treatments that – irony alert – don’t work.
But, here’s the truth. Acupuncture DOES work. A study from Shanghai University found acupuncture delivered relief to 81 percent of patients. While a 2015 analysis found it beat standard Western care for sciatica in effectiveness, pain intensity, and pain threshold.
The downside is that it can take a few sessions before it kicks in. So be sure to be patient.
In the meantime, don’t turn to drugs. Try all-natural topical pain-fighters with proven ingredients such as capsaicin, menthol, DMSO, and MSM.
