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
Constant pain in the buttocks
Here’s how to prepare the remedy:
4 garlic cloves
200 ml. of milk
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.
