If you are suffering from serious back pain you can forget about prepping. That is because back pain can be debilitating. It’s an ugly and tough pain to recover from.
There are people who spend decades suffering from back pain.
Without access to surgery or a doctor, do you have a plan for dealing with pain in general? How about back pain? If you are suffering from some sort of sciatic pain than you have to understand how it negatively affects you.
Let’s look at three affordable and natural remedies for dealing with sciatic pain.
The popular cannabinoid is doing amazing things with anxiety and even seizures in young children. Another big benefit of CBD oil is pain relief. It’s been used on people’s backs in salve form and taken orally to affect inflammation in general.
CBD is well worth the exploration.
There is nothing like Yoga on pain. Your body is constantly crushing under the weight of stress and gravity. That is why people get shorter as they head into their later years.
Yoga puts you on the ground to stretch back out again! It is the very best means of dealing with muscle cramps, pain, and injuries.
Simple Yin yoga poses and holding them can change your entire body in a month if you do it consistently. Do not discount the powerful effects of stretching.
Another powerful natural anti-inflammatory is turmeric and you can create a simple paste to be taken daily. This paste is simple to make and just requires heating the turmeric powder in some olive oil and then adding some fresh cracked pepper.
The pepper is essential and makes the mixture more effective.
You don’t need opiates in your life to deal with pain.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
