Sciatica is a term which describes pain that originates from the lower back and goes through the buttocks to the lower part of the legs. The pain occurs as a result of pinch or inflamed sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the biggest nerve in the body – when pinched or inflamed, it will result in intense pain and symptoms such as numbness or tingling in the legs.
Sciatic is usually relieved with medications, but they are only a temporary solution. Many experts recommend exercise and stretches which can relieve the pain as well. However, there’s one natural remedy which can reduce the pain efficiently and in just a short time.
HERE ARE THE MOST COMMON SCIATICA SYMPTOMS:
- Pain that starts in the lower back and radiates towards the hip, buttocks and legs
- Numbness and tingling in the legs
- The pain increases when sitting
- Difficulty moving
- Constant pain in the buttocks
HERE’S HOW TO PREPARE THE REMEDY:
- 4 garlic cloves
- 200 ml. of milk
How to make:
Crush the cloves and cook them on low heat, then add the milk and boil for a few minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat next, then leave it to cool down and add a bit of honey. Consume the whole amount for a day to relive the pain and subdue the symptoms of sciatica.
The remedy works mostly due to garlic’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce the swelling of the nerve. For best results, we suggest pairing the remedy with some stretches or exercises that will improve your mobility.
