The Bread & Butter
Basics of Backaches

Dear Friend,

Not everything in life is basic or easy. But when it comes to backaches there are a few things that you should know. Read more below on how homeopathy has a way of helping the body right itself, gently and efficiently. So before you think you are forever burdened with back pain, think homeopathy



Have you ever wondered why some people have robust health while others don’t?  Perhaps, it’s that they eat differently, have a better attitude, have better luck in the DNA department or have a better workout routine.  

Which one is it, or is it all of these?  

Well, if these thoughts have entered your mind, you’re on the right track.  In order to gain an understanding of anything new, we indeed need to question, observe, and analyze.

Allow me to postulate that health is not random. As a homeopathic consultant for over 17 years, I have seen health and have seen the absence of it.  

I believe that the principles and laws of health are available to anyone interested in observing and then emulating them. There are explicit strategies, thoughts and actions that must be in place in order to achieve anything we do in life. In attaining health, it would be wise to follow the traditions of true healing.

Homeopathy offers this.

Let’s look at common backaches. The most important first step is to drink a great deal of water for a few days. Believe it or not, it can be surprising how often back pain, that appears to be complicated, is simply a dehydration issue.

But, if there’s no change after giving this protocol a good effort, then a well-chosen homeopathic remedy can be effective. The main remedy that has a reputation for addressing many types of backaches is Calc phos 6x. It’s usually taken 3 times daily for about three weeks.

It is particularly indicated for a person who experiences pain in the small of the back with coldness and a creeping sensation that is typically worse in the morning. It’s valuable for young people who are growing rapidly. This remedy has a reputation for resolving the specific type of pain that is described above. If your pain is different, then it will not work. Remember, homeopathy is symptom specific.

When the pain is worse in the morning with terrible stiffness that is relieved somewhat or completely with a little limbering up, it is usually a match with the remedy, Rhus tox. There is often a worsening of pain and inflexibility if the sufferer overworks, such as in doing the first gardening of the year.

Another time in which the back might act up and indicate the need for Rhus tox is during a long trip that requires being seated for an extended period of time.

It’s usually taken in a 200 potency every 3-4 hours for one day only. Higher potencies for more stubborn cases require the supervision of a homeopath. 

When pain in the back is comforted by lying on a hard surface, then the remedy is Nat mur 6x. It works best when taken three times per day for weeks.

Back pain can sometimes occur as a result of nervous causes.  In this case, Kali phos 6x is the remedy of choice.

This is often a successful strategy that is inexpensive and has no questionable ingredients…no ulterior motives.

Common sense medicine for people who value good common sense resolutions.
