Back aches are on the rise due to stress and poor nutrition. It's worth considering that the spine is a major pathway for the nerves of the body. All emotional, psychological and physical stresses can therefore manifest in the back, especially the lower back-the seat of your kidneys. The kidneys are the purification system for the body. When you are under stress or your body is malnourished from a poor diet, the kidneys have to work overtime and their purifying system may not work as efficiently, Therefore, nutrition can play a vital role in the prevention of backaches.
Nutritional Backache Help:
Drink more water, at least 6-8 glasses a day. Dehydration will cause backaches even in those who are not normally prone to back afflictions. Water also helps flush out the excess acid particles from the kidneys.
Avoid red meats, caffeine and, in some cases, dairy from cow's milk (If you have a line down the middle of your tongue, this is an indication that you are unable to digest the large molecules of cows milk). Sugar, alcohol and processed foods may also aggravate your back.
Eat more green leafy veggies. Nuts such as walnuts and almonds, seeds and cold water fish are good food choices too. Add more raw fruits, vegetables and whole grains to your diet.
Reduce the bad fats in your diet. Bad fats create compounds in the body that contribute to spinal disk degeneration.
Ensure that you have an adequate supply of magnesium and calcium in the diet.
If you suffer from lower back problems, take the following supplements everyday:
Magnesium (1000 mg)
Calcium (750 mg)
Silica (1-2 tablespoons of liquid silica)
Green juice drinks to flush out acids
Boron (3 mg) for better uptake of the above nutrients
Aloe vera juice (2 tablespoons) an hour before bed
