Yesterday I heard that she felt that the ginger was really helping her! I was thrilled to hear it. Something so simple for a miserable condition.
On the subject of sciatica, an extended family member mentioned that he was dealing with sciatica. I tried to think of something that he might be willing to do. I mentioned that sitting cross legged on the floor seems to bring relief to mine.
In general, I am making more notice of my posture when I am sitting and I think it is helping my chronic back issues.
When my back is hurting I tend to want to sit back in a squishy chair. I think that may be the worst thing ever for it. When I think about what the spine looks like (from pictures at the chiropractor) I think that leaning back and other postures cause more stress on my back. I am not letting the pelvis support the spine and do its job. When I sit so that the spine is above the pelvis, I let the pelvic bones do their job.
I have a large exercise ball that I sit on some. It helps me to get my pelvis and spine aligned and balanced. (Don't start sitting on an exercise ball for long periods of time at first! ) I think comfrey smoothies are helping my back, too, while I am on the subject.
So much to learn. So many interesting remedies!
Have a super day!

What definitely has gone away is my sciatica pain. My lower back still gives out with work. Maybe 80+ years is a factor. Ticks are bad this year with the mild winter. My Tractor Driver has to inspect Honey, our Rat Terrier, after a day at the farm. Last trip, she picked 9 ticks off her. Lyme is the latest rage and is a result of our Gov. messin with Bio stuff. Are we stupid or what? Lord, hep us to get right.

I have a friend who was in severe pain for at least a week & a half. The sciatic nerve in his left leg was so bad when he finally managed to get out of bed in the morning one leg was an inch or two shorter than the other. Needless to say he was in terrible mood & not all that nice to those around him. He was in excruciating pain & had been to the chiropractor, & was taking anything he could get his hands on for pain...so after doing some research I bought some crystallized ginger & took it to him. This was around 6pm or so. He ate one piece & had a hard time swallowing it, going on & on about how bad it taste. A little later we were eating dinner & he said "you know I think my back was getting better anyway" I said "oh so the ginger did help?" "Instantly! " Was his response. So he continued eating it piece by piece every few hrs or so. By that night he was acting like his old self-THANK GOD!
