Natural Back Pain Cure: What’s Good for the Neck Works on the Butt
Are you plagued with chronic back pain but are worried that many pain cures are actually unsafe and can lead to addiction and/or an accidental overdose? Are you afraid that taking a pain killer will end your sex life? If so, you may want to learn about the 3 latest natural pain killer cures recommended by Dr. Oz with one that although it’s meant for the neck works on the butt and back as well.
“For millions of you plagued with chronic pain, this is how your body feels on a regular basis―like it’s under attack screaming for relief. Well today I am ending your war with pain,” says Dr. Oz as he introduces 3 new innovative pain fighters that are non-addicting natural pain killers.
Natural Pain Killer #1: Corydalis Granules
“My first natural pain killer is a game changer for anyone with chronic pain. What is this natural pain miracle worker? It’s called corydalis,” says Dr. Oz who tells viewers that corydalis has been used for centuries in Asia for treating pain and that only now is it being accepted by modern medicine as a new way to treat chronic pain.
Corydalis is also known by the name “Chinese Poppy” and U.S. researchers have now extracted its active pain-killing ingredient referred to in medical circles as DHCB. DHCB works differently from other pain relievers by going to the dopamine receptors in the brain that are responsible for feelings of pleasure. The result―pain relief that is non-additive.
With Dr. Oz is special guest Daniel Hsu, an acupuncturist and natural medicine practitioner who tells viewers that he uses it on his patients for treating chronic pain in the back, for headaches and even menstrual cramps. However, he cautions that it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or people who have an irregular heart rhythm.
One way corydalis can be taken is by dissolving 1-2 small scoopfuls of corydalis granules in a cup of hot water.
“You can even put it in a drink bottle and take it with you during the day. And if you have chronic pain you can drink it like a tea,” says Mr. Hsu. “The most you should really take during the course of a day is about three to nine grams, and that comes out to about one to two teaspoons.”
Corydalis granules can be found in herbal medicine shops or in the office of an acupuncturist.
For consumer convenience, corydalis also comes in a capsule supplement form that can be taken 2-3 times a day up to the recommended 3-9 grams total of corydalis. The difference between the two forms is that the corydalis granules are much faster acting toward relief than the supplement pill form.
Natural Pain Killer #2: Magnesium
“Our next natural pain killer is a life-saver for many of you who suffer from migraines and the pain medications that often make them worse over time,” says Dr. Oz as he introduces magnesium as a natural pain killing cure.
According to Dr. Oz, migraines lead to a vicious cycle of taking pain medications followed by rebound pain as the body reacts to the many medications that are supposed to help you, but in reality are making things worse. However, there is hope for migraine sufferers as he tells viewers that up to 50% of all migraines are due to a deficiency in magnesium and therefore can be treated naturally with a magnesium supplement.
“I recommend magnesium citrate supplement. You can get it in 400 to 600 milligram forms—it’s not a massive dose and you can get it in health food stores all over the place,” says Dr. Oz.
Aside from a magnesium supplement, some foods stop migraines and other pain as well when the pain is due to a nutrient deficiency.
Natural Pain Killer #3: The Butt Pillow
“My last natural pain killer treats a problem that afflicts almost everyone at some point—lower back pain,” says Dr. Oz who tells viewers that one of the biggest causes of lower back pain is from sitting for too many hours at your desk behind the keyboard.
“Your butt area is full of nerves… the nerves that come out the pelvic area are called the ‘pudendal nerves.’ They will actually begin to throb, crying out for help because you are sitting on them. They can cause a lot of pain for you when you are sitting on your tail side,” says Dr. Oz.
To treat and avoid a recurrence of lower back pain, Dr. Oz recommends a simple solution that he refers to as a “Butt Pillow.”
Dr. Oz’s “Butt Pillow” solution is to sit on a horseshoe-shaped padding with an open area in the center where the pudendal nerve lies and does not experience direct pressure while the rest of the butt rests on the arms of the horseshoe-shaped padding. Depending on the size of your butt, Dr. Oz tells viewers that smaller people can sit on one of those neck pillows used while traveling on airplane. Or, if that does provide enough open space to take the pressure off the pudendal nerve, then a person can try a similarly shaped but larger, breast feeding pillow. A third solution is to cut out your own butt pillow from a thick piece of foam and leave it on your chair ready to use when you work.
