Holistic Back Pain Relief

Looking for Back Pain Relief

Looking for Back Pain Relief

Here’s an article on back pain relief using holistic methods. This is a good idea since the medical model is much less likely to work. Not to mention the side effects of drugs and surgery which are the main methods used by doctors.

The article covers several different methods from taking a break to massage, acupuncture and manipulation of the joint by a professional.

The author acknowledges that surgery may be necessary for back pain relief in serious conditions: “Another common reason for back surgery is a herniated disc. Some very painful conditions are caused by a disc pinching a nerve, which requires surgery to relieve pain.”  But acknowledges that not all herniated discs need surgery. “However, not all bulging discs as MRIs show it need surgery. ”

An interesting statistic I didn’t know is how fast a herniated disc can heal. “According to studies, many herniated discs heal well within six months without surgery, unless the disc hits on the sciatic nerve.” I thought it took much longer, which is probably true of more serious problems. She didn’t say anything about using supplements to aid in the healing, something I am a strong believer in.

I really like how she says that back pain needs to be treated at the root of the problem rather than just treating the symptom. “Since back pain is not a disease but a symptom, there is a need to treat the underlying cause. A holistic approach does that to heal back problems.”

Other methods of back pain relief that she discusses are heat, exercise (the closest thing to a cure all I’ve ever seen) and dealing with weight issues.

I really like how she says that people need to change their life style if they really want to heal from back pain. “The above holistic treatments require dietary and lifestyle modifications along with supplements. ”

My Methods for Back Pain Relief

The one thing she doesn’t recommend is my treatment for lower back pain, dealing with adrenal fatigue. I wouldn’t expect her to say anything about how it is possible to adjust yourself using Self Adjusting Technique for back pain relief as that is a very unique method that isn’t very well known yet.

She and I both agree that you might want to consider holistic healing before rushing to the operating room or giving in to long term medication. Back pain relief can be found through natural methods and should always be considered, at least in our opinion.

Meet the Author

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
