Your Home Guide to Gemmotherapy V: Back Pain or Spasms

February 9, 2016

Arghhh, a back ache! No one wants to be slowed down by acute symptoms, but a back ache can be oh so debilitating – particularly if you need to care for children or have physical work to do. Yes, Advil can take the edge off but at what cost to your liver? What if I were to offer you a solution that works AND strengthens what caused the symptoms in the first place? As part of my Home Guide to Gemmotherapy Series I would like to offer my go-to for back pain or back spasms.

In the case of sudden back pain as a result of lifting, a wrong movement, or physical exercise Giant Redwood along with Silver Fir and Black Currant should be given in alternating doses each hour. Begin with Silver Fir and Black Currant followed by Giant Redwood the next hour, continue throughout waking hours for 24 hours. If improved, reduce doses to every two hours the next 24 hours, continuing until there is no longer any discomfort. If there is no improvement after 24 hours or you are experiencing chronic back pain please contact your health care provider for further advice.

Curious as to why the winning combination is Giant Redwood, Silver Fir, and Black Currant? Have a look at the graphic below for further information.

    This was all new to me. Very interesting. I hope you will be able to post more about it with more details. I am a work-at-home mom, and I often experience back pain due to my bad posture at work as well as attending to my 1-year-old son.
