Are there secret home remedies for back pain, perhaps some ancient herb or treatment that might still work? Certainly man has been plagued with bad backs ever since he dropped down from the trees and started walking upright and since that time has tried many ways to cure his pain. Today we are very quick about popping a pill or going to a doctor and or chiropractor for every ache and pain. But are there things we can do by ourselves at home that can solve or problem backs.

 Well the answer is yes! There are home cure for back pain. I don't know how secret they are: most are just common sense. However it's sometimes surprising how often common sense flies out the window when pain clouds our judgment.

First let us look at some of the benefits of using these Lose The Back Pain System">"secret home cures".
1. Ease or eliminate back pain.
2. Feel better
3. Improve sleep
4. Save money
5. Lose weight

Sound good? There are many more benefits, but I think these are enough to motivate you to try these secret cures.

So here are some remedies that have worked for me and I am sure can work for you. Some of these secrets can be use immediately and some when the pain subsides and some only with checking with your doctor.

 1. Rest: Yeah I know "Big Secret" but it's amazing how many people just can't seem to really rest. Turn off the electronic devices and go to bed! Now here's the secret: Put a pillow under your knees to take the strain off your back.

 2. Pillows: Another method that I like is lying on my side with the pillow tucked between my knees.

 3. Cold Compress: Go to the freezer and grab a bag of frozen peas, wrap in a towel and place directly on the painful area. Ever notice how when an athlete is injured the first thing they do is apply "ice". They do this because it works! The cold clams the nerves and deaden the pain. But only keep the compress on for twenty minutes max.

 4. Heat: There are many rubs and lotions you can buy that can help with the pain. A simple home remedy is to make or have someone who sews make a cloth bag filled with rice. Pop the bag into the microwave for a few seconds and place on the painful area. The heat relaxes the muscles and eases the pain. My wife likes to switch for cold to hot packs because she say's it shocks the muscles and nerves. Try it just remember not too hot or cold and only for twenty minutes.

 5. Massage: I love a good massage and find it really helps my back to relax and for me to unwind. A real simple massage is to use what you probably have right in your cupboard: Olive Oil. Just warm up a couple of teaspoons in a glass bowl in the microwave and have your partner apply it to your back. Again be careful that's it not too hot. Don't worry about proper technique, just a slow up and down or circular motion is all that's needed.

 6. Hot Toddy: This was my Dad's cure for almost any aliment from a cold to a bad back. I never remember Dad taking a sick day and he lived to be eighty-nine. A modern version of this secret elixir is as follows: a cup of hot water, a tablespoon of honey and a little lemon juice. I like to put a full slice of lemon right in the cup. Stir and microwave till hot, drink slowly. Take a couple of non-aspirin over the counter pain pills, a hot bath or shower and go to bed early.

 Give these Lose The Back Pain System">"secret home remedies for back pain" a try. They can help you to ease the pain and recover your health. I can personally approve each one because I have used them to relieve my own sciatic pain. Besides curing your pain, the health benefits are an added bonus. Of course if the backache doesn't go away see your doctor.
