Backpain is most common in the lower back (lumbago), although it can be felt anywhere along the spine. It usually originates from the back muscles and nerves, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments or disc disease in the spine. The pain is dull, sharp, piercing, burning and can stay in one place or radiate into the arms, hands, legs and feet. Possible are also muscle spasms, cramping, and stiffness.
Causes of back pain include poor posture, an acidification of the body, bending awkwardly, lifting incorrectly, being overweight, lack of exercise, injury or overuse, psychological causes (depression, anxiety, stress), bulging or ruptured disks (press on a nerve), osteoarthritis of the small joints in the spine, a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord (spinal stenosis), spine curvature disorder (lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis), osteoporosis and spondylolisthesis (a slipping of vertebra).
In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of back pain and disc disease, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, the immune system and strengthening the body's circulation, discs and connective tissue. It cleans, de-acidifies the body, is mineralizing and leads to a balanced life energy. The body will be purified and the dissolved metabolic waste, acids and toxins are excreted through the gut, urinary tract, lungs and skin.
Back pain and disc disease can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Also a defective metabolism favors back pain and disc disease, acidification and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution. Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat back pain and disc disease.
Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.
First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment and prevention of back pain and disc disease offered in this guide:
Homeopathy was developed about 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of Similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.
It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of back pain and disc disease. The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.
What happens if you choose the wrong remedy? Nothing. Just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.
The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (for example D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.
Schuessler salts (also named homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, Biochemistry) for the treatment and prevention of back pain and disc disease
In the 19th Century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback. In his studies Schuessler discovered twelve mineral compounds, comprised each of a base and an acid, which play a crucial role in the function and structure of the body. He developed his own system with which many diseases can be treated in a natural way (also back pain and disc disease).
Schuessler focused his search on mineral salts and trace elements, which are found in every cell of the body and called his method of healing "Biochemistry" (chemistry of life). It is based on the assumption that nearly every disease is caused because of the lack of a specific mineral salt. This leads to dysregulations inside the cells. The molecules cannot flow freely.
A mineral salt deficiency arises from the fact that the cells cannot optimally use the minerals. To improve their absorption, mineral salts therefore have to be highly diluted (potentized). Schuessler used the homeopathic potencies D3 (3x), D6 (6x) and D12 (12x) for his therapy. In general, the D6 (dilution 1:1 million) or D12 (1:1 trillion) is taken.
Acupressure for the selftreatment and prevention of back pain and disc disease
Acupressure und Acupuncture come from the Far East. Because of their great success they are now becoming very popular with us. During the acupuncture treatment needles are pierced into specific points. During the acupressure treatment these points are pressed, massaged or rapped. Both treatment methods have the advantage that they do not have any side effects when used correctly.
About 400 acupuncture points are used constantly, but much more are known. They lie on the 12 main meridians and the special meridians, which must be imagined as the energy pathways of the body. As long as the energy is distributed evenly throughout the energy channels, the person is healthy. When the energy flow is disrupted, the person is sick. By treating certain points, the energy between the meridians will be balanced and the patient gets enough power to become healthy.
In this homeopathic and naturopathic adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat and prevent back pain and disc disease with Homeopathy, Schuessler salts and Acupressure. I will present you the most proven homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts, including the appropriate potency and dosage. Naturopathy works holistically. It treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success, joy of life and especially your health.
Metabolic blockages in the treatment of back pain and disc disease
There are several metabolic blockages which you have to treat for to deacidify and detoxify the body of people suffering from back pain and disc disease.
Metabolic blockage No. 1: The acid-base balance
Too much sugar, white flour, meat and sausage acidifies the body. In order to neutralize the acids precious bases are consumed. What is not neutralized, ends up as a "hazardous waste" in the connective tissue and leads to its acidity. The metabolic process slows down. We get back pain and disc disease, take weight despite calorie conscious diet and exercise.
Schuessler-salt No. 9 Sodium phosphate D6 (Nr. 9 Natrium phosphoricum D6) ensures that toxins and metabolic residues are flushed from the body. Sodium phosphate (Natrium phosphoricum) also stimulates the metabolism of fat and sugar degradation.
Metabolic blockage No. 2: The connective tissue
The connective tissue is more than just a connection between the organs. It serves as a nutrient storage and intermediate storage of metabolic products. In the connective tissue the cells dispose their waste products. That the toxins can leave the body, enough mineral salts must be present. A mineral deficiency causes metabolic residues, acidification and overload with toxins. They remain in the connective tissue and bind water. It comes to water retention (edema) in the tissues of the body.
The salts No. 6 Potassium sulph D6 (Nr. 6 Kalium sulfuricum D6), No. 9 Sodium phosphate D6 (Nr. 9 Natrium phosphoricum D6), No. 10 Sodium sulphate D6 (Nr. 10 Natrium sulfuricum D6) and No. 11 Silicea D12 promote the excretion of acids and toxins through the skin and activate the detoxification via the liver, intestines and kidneys.
Metabolic blockage No. 3: The digestion
Environmental pollution, lush diet and medication burden the liver, our central metabolic organ. Stomach, pancreas and intestines suffer with. Many metabolic processes stalled and it comes to back pain and disc disease, weight gain, constipation, bloating and stomach problems.
No. 4 Potassium chloratum D6 (Nr. 4 Kalium chloratum D6), No. 6 Potassium sulph D6 (Nr. 6 Kalium sulfuricum D6) and No. 10 Sodium sulphate (Nr. 10 Natrium sulfuricum D6) give the liver and digestive organs new power. The metabolic processes accelerate. Toxins and acids are excreted faster.
Metabolic blockage No. 4: Our water Resources
Every day the organism produces acids and waste products that have to be filtered out by the kidneys. But part of it also ends up in the connective tissue, because for the removal mineral salts are absent.
No. 8 Sodium chloratum D6 (Nr. 8 Natrium chloratum D6) regulates the water balance and No. 10 Sodium sulphate D6 (Nr. 10 Natrium sulfuricum D6) drained. Together they controll the water balance in the body.
Metabolic blockage No. 5: The protein digestion
Protein is essential for the production of enzymes, hormones, muscles and the connective tissue. However, in the cleavage of proteins ammonia is formed (a strong cytotoxin). The liver converts the ammonia into non-toxic urea, which is excreted in the urine. Therefore, a high intake of protein is a strong decontamination work for our two kidneys.
Salt No. 9 Sodium phosphate D6 (Nr. 9 Natrium phosphoricum D6) helps the body in protein metabolism. Salt No. 6 Potassium sulph D6 (Nr. 6 Kalium sulfuricum D6) supports the liver in the degradation of ammonia.
Metabolic blockage No. 6: The digestion of fat
We need fats because they provide essential fatty acids. But fat is also the best energy storage in times of need.
