It is possible in my opinion. You may want to do hot bath /cold shower to help detox?
Yes, I think that may help too... I was thinking a sitz bath.
Do you have any idea what causes the back pain? No. I thought for a while that it might be adrenal pain as my cortisol has tested low in the past but now that I'm taking better care of myself (less stress, dropping bad habits) I don't think so. My energy level is good even though I'm in pain.
How long have you had it? about 30 years
Is it arthritis or stress? No, I don't think so.
New excercise routine, heavy lifting perhaps? Nope.
New or very old mattress? Nope.
Is it relieved at any point during the day? continuous? Continuous... less so in the morning. Definitely worse after physical exertion.
What else have you tried so far to relieve it? Pain killers (I lived on them for a while, but no longer), chiropractic (works for about 2 hours), massage (works for about a day), yoga (works while I'm doing yoga), fasting (very effective as long as there is nothing in my system). Soon as I go back to eating it returns. Flushing or cleansing aggravates it. I'm considering Traditional Chinese Medicine as a next step. And of course, more liver flushing.
Do you drink plenty of water? Yes.
Is it lower back or upper back pain? Mid-back both sides
Take EFA/Essential oils
Take 1 tsp. Cayenne pepper with fresh lemon juice and a pinch Celtic or Himalayan Sea Salt.
I take all the same things with the exception of the salt. I'll try adding that. I can't really say that castor oil has made any difference for me. Maybe I just have to use it for several weeks before I can expect to see a change.
Thanks for your suggestions,
Deva, I've just started chiro adjustments.
I'd never had back problems at all until my liver reared it's ugly head. OMG the pain in back was unbearable at times. My liver was HUGE and I'm sure it was pushing on my spine and that muscle just to the rightside of the spine.
Flushing stone-free didn't make the pain go away completely, only made it livable.
Today was my 3rd adjustment. Chiro had been working on the vertabrae just above and below where we pinpointed the pain. Both had gone off like crazy at the adjustments previously. Today, it was a very soft double snap on the top one and nothing on the bottom one. He was also working a prolapsed kidney back into place. It was completely out of it's socket. Read up on raspberry leaf tea and see what it does for abdomimal muscularture. Drinking the tea in double strength several times a day is making a difference in my life along with adjustments!!
