 Reversing Back Pain Naturally

  About an estimated 80% of North Americans will experience at least one episode of acute back pain at some point in their lives. But on any given day in North America, 6.8 million people are immobilized with back pain and every year 200 million work days are lost because of back pain Back problems is becoming increasingly common and seems to be more prevalent in the western world. The following shows the factors contributing to back problems:

- Car Accidents - Contact Sports - Falls - Fatigue - Poor Posture - Nutritional Stress

  Treatment for Back Pain:
  When most people experience back pain they run out to the local drug store to pick up some pain relievers and hope that their pain will go away, but for about 99% of the time this will only mask the symptoms. From my experience, I have found using a unique combination of Reflexology, Homeopathy, Nutritional Counselling, Applied Kinesiology, Craniosacral therapy and Lymphatic Drainage will remove the cause of the back pain and help your body to be in a more balanced and pain free state. Reflexology is a natural healing therapy based on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet and hands that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflex points, reflexology promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body.

  Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle massage technique that helps to increase body fluid flow and remove waste products from body tissues. Homeopathy is the therapeutic use of minute substances used to stimulate the immune system, strengthen and detoxify organs and systems and put the body back in balance. Applied Kinesiology aids in strengthening and balancing the muscles and in re-patterning the nervous system. Cranioscral therapy, is a hands-on technique used to remove bony or diaphragm restrictions in the cranium and along the spine. I have found that the integration of these therapies will alleviate back pain by removing nerve interference, inflammation, muscle tension and through the detoxification of organs and systems of the body.
