Dave Foreman, known as the herbal pharmacist, joins Mark to talk about natural back pain alternatives. Dave Foreman practices everything he teaches with herbs and health overall.
Lower back pain is one of the biggest problems facing Americans. There are a number of drugs and devices used to treat and help people with lower back pain. In his mid 30’s Dave Foreman had back problems. He learned that the insoles and other multiple devices that people use are absolutely worthless and do not really help at all.
The best thing you can do is get more exercise. That’s right, even though it sounds backwards but exercise will actually help you with lower back pain. Walking will help loosen up the back muscles and will help relieve the pain. Core exercises are also very helpful. There area variety of exercises that can help such as summing, yoga, weight lifting etc… The exercise helps get the blood flowing and once the blood starts to move through the muscles it promotes healing and will begin to help loosen those muscles up significantly.
Weight has a lot to do with lower back pain. When an individual is over weight, carrying around that weight takes a toll on the body overall. Most people who are 30-40 pounds or more overweight experience back pain. Again, regular exercise will not only loosen the muscles and get the blood flowing but it will help you lose weight.
