Of all the nerves in the human body, the sciatic nerve is definitely the longest. It stretches from the lower back down to the feet and has the role of providing a connection to the nervous system to nearly all the skin on our legs, thigh muscles and leg and feet muscles. It is also responsible for a variety of minor movements, so it’s safe to say it’s pretty important.
However, the nerve can easily get irritated and inflamed due to a variety of factors. When irritated, it can develop a condition called sciatica which can cause extreme pain, a burning sensation in your legs and back and may even make you unable to walk. Sciatica is a serious and widespread problem and is usually treated with anti-inflammatory pills as well as common painkillers. They do help in the short run, but they never treat the underlying problem of the irritation, which is why you should turn to other solutions.
Luckily, natural alternatives for sciatica exist. You can use a combination of remedies and stretches in order to soothe the irritation and get rid of the sometimes unbearable pain. Below you can see a recipe for one such natural remedy made of garlic and rice milk that has shown it can significantly reduce the pain in your lower back and feet and relieve sciatica once and for all.
The Most Powerful Sciatica Remedy
