Sciatica Info

"Thou Cold Sciatica, cripple our Senators, that their Limbs may halt as lamely as their Manners"

William Shakespeare


The main symptoms of sciatica include lower back pain, buttock pain, and numbness in various parts of the leg and foot.  The true cause of sciatica is unknown but it is thought that it may be caused by the general compression of one of the five spinal nerve roots that comprise the sciatic nerve.

Other symptoms include pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body. The pain may radiate below the knee, but does not always.

Although sciatica is a common form of leg and lower back pain, the meaning of the term is often misunderstood as it relates to the symptoms and not the real cause of what is causing the pain at the root of the nerve.

Treatments for sciatica depend on the diagnosed causes and pain levels. The causes can include compression of the sciatic nerve roots caused by a protruding disc in the lower back.

There are natural health remedies available that may help with the pain associated with sciatica.

  • worked well but Pricey

    star

    I found once I double the dosage, it worked well - would love to keep using but not sure as it is quite pricey for the amount needed over a month.
    If you store this upside down in the fridge & shake well before used, you dont get the build up on the bottom & get to use the whole bottle. :-)

  • Good for tendonitis and joint care

    star

    This was amazing! 15 months ago I got diagnosed with the worst case of Achilles tendonitis the doctor had seen. I have tried everything except surgery (which only has a 50% chance of working) and nothing worked....until I found Rhus Tox! My symptoms actually got worse in the first 2 days and an old knee injury flared up - but after day 3 things got progressively better! I could really feel it working. It was amazing because I was very sceptical about homeopathy medicines....but this worked! I still have a little bit of tenderness and stiffness in one of the Achilles but the medicine has taken away so much of the pain! (My pain was at a constant 8 - 9 out of 10 - it is now around 2 - 3 out of 10....zero being no pain). This may not work for everyone as I understand that homeopathy treats the individual so results will most likely vary, hallelujah it was great for me! I also used Weleda's 'Tendonitis Cream' with it (once each night) and that seemed to help with the night pain. I have been taking this for 2 weeks and love it!
