I have had lower back pain for years and sciatica started a few months back when I fell. I have read numerous remedies. So I combined everyones suggestions and came up with these. Drink a mixture of cut ginger root (5-7 slices), turmeric and curry powder, (1/2 tsp)in a tall shaker container,(I steep in hot water for 5-10 min. then fill the rest w/cool water). Also have been doing the ACV, (3 tblspn) in water through out the day, (same container). Like OMG, what a difference. Also bought the Virgin Coconut Oil and put all over my body. My aches and even the "squeeking" of my knees when I kneel/bend are gone. I have always tried to go natural and have many books on herbs, etc. This website is AWSOME!! Oh, also the cold showers - WOW, what a difference. I always wondered when I swimming in the ocean and the water was about 65 my back never hurt - Eureka - now I know.
