Lower Back Pain

By J.R. Rogers

Oh, yes. Nearly everyone over the age of 40 is eventually plagued with that nagging, persistent lower back pain. In fact, being younger does not make you immune from lower back pain. Frequently, it strikes much younger individuals as well. It can range from mild pain and discomfort to pain that is simply crippling.

There are so many factors involved in the development of lower back pain that it is difficult to address all of them. However, we can gain a lot of ground in defeating this debilitating problem with a few simple steps.

Osteoarthritis and the Lower Back
As we have discussed many times, OA is not caused by a single factor. It is a combination of many factors, some of which we have touched on briefly in past issues of the Arthritis Chronicle. One that we have talked about is toxicity but that bears a little more discussion.

The Detoxification Factor
Incredibly, many who suffer with lower back pain either minimize their pain or end it altogether by drinking that (old recommended) eight (8) glasses of water a day. That's right, drinking water. (I recommend distilled water.)

You see, a great deal of lower back pain is a result of inflammation that can be brought under control by using a high-quality liquid glucosamine, moderate exercise and drinking water to "detox" the pollutants that invade our bodies. Often called undischarged toxicity, these toxins play a major role in the development of arthritis in both men and women.

What's happening to my back?
Broadly speaking, when most back pain begins to hit you, much of the cartilage that protects the bony structure in the lower back has worn. As well, most of us suffer from some form of dehydration that when combined with a diet high in acid crystal-forming toxins further complicates our lower back pain.

I mentioned that I prefer distilled water. I do because much of the water we drink today (whether from our home taps or store-bought) is filled with chemicals and minerals. Nonetheless, if cost is a factor and buying distilled water is too expensive for your diet, just stay with a regimen of whatever water is available to you.

How to Proceed
If you are over 40, it is highly likely that you are already experiencing lower back pain. Of course, there can be a great many reasons for that. Nonetheless, most who have begun a regimen of eight full glasses of water a day combined with using a high-quality liquid glucosamine will begin to feel the difference. Don't feel that using other liquids such as sodas or juices is going to do the job. It is not, believe me.

What are you accomplishing?
Ninety Nine (99%) of those with lower back pain can attribute it to the accumulation of toxins that are contributing significantly to joint degeneration and inflammation in surrounding tissues. Water is a major "healer" in getting those toxins out of your system. Give this water regimen a try for a few months and keep a diary along the way. Most of you are going to be pleasantly surprised.

Have a drink on me. In fact, have about eight of them.

See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.

This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.

If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.

The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
