A Natural Approach To Sciatica

A Natural Approach To Sciatica

"To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him."

-Buddha

With the daily health inflictions we put on our bodies in the modern world, it has become more necessary now more than ever to get more in tune with our bodies and look to methods like Ayurveda for pain that results from factors we can perhaps change and reduce in our lives.

Understanding Sciatica I remember when my late stage of pregnancy, I had forms of this pain, and it was excruciating! It's when the sciatic nerve, a large nerve that goes from the lower back down to the back of both legs, becomes pinched, inflamed or otherwise irritated that you feel sciatica.

Since I was pregnant, western pain medicine was out of the question and I generally go to more natural approaches anyway.

Here is what I found worked for me: The do's:

  1. Regular yoga and exercise
  2. Sleeping on a firm mattress
  3. Eating well with all my daily nutrients & proteins
The don'ts:
  1. Getting up suddenly or jerky movement
  2. Bending a lot in my day
  3. Junk food, fatty foods and fried foods

I learned that when I listened to what my body needed, the pain was not as severe.

Since a lot of it was the baby's weight, i couldn't control it all, but at least I was able to make choices that allowed for some of the pain to subside.

That is what Ayurveda gifts us. The daily choice of health.
