Low Back Pain Causes

What are the low back pain causes? Here we will review what causes lower back pain. We will provide a comprehensive review of lower back pain from both the medical view point and from the water cures knowledge base.

Finally, you will be provided with alternatives to surgery and chemical medication to eliminate low back pain. Holistic health care, natural healing or call it what you like, we focus on treating the entire person, not just the symptoms. We can help you learn ways to treat your personal low back pain causes.

Common Low Back Pain Causes

National Institutes of Health estimates that 8 out of 10 people will suffer from back pain during their life.

Pain can be set off by something as simple as sugar in our diet and something major like injury.

Note: If you skip everything else, make sure and read about how little sugar it takes to cause lower back pain. It will be the last section on this page.

Mechanical Reasons

Mechanical reasons for pain include the way we move our spine or the pressures we put on our spine. These movements can result in pressure on the disks that cushion the vertebrae or our back bones.

The way we move can cause disk degeneration called intervertebral disc degeneration. This means the disks are breaking down. The medical view is that it is age related degeneration. At Water Cures, we feel that the reason is more likely fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. The disk is dependent on hydration to function properly.

In modern medicine, they are viewed as breaking down and loose cushioning ability. What if the breakdown is due to dehydration and the resulting inability to act as a cushion.

Once wore down, any stress can cause further damage that will result in pain.

Some of the ways we can cause mechanical damage to our back is by repeatedly getting into our car improperly, lifting improperly, carrying a few extra pounds, and the wrong bra.

Besides obvious causes (constantly lugging a too-heavy purse, for instance), experts say that everyday habits like hunching over your smartphone can strain your spine and the surrounding muscles over time, causing pain and making you more vulnerable to serious injury. To stop back pain now—and avoid future agony—try targeting these unexpected culprits.

Your Office Chair

The best chair can be bad for your back if you do not get out of it once and a while. Our spine needs movement to increase circulation which is how proper hydration is effected.

One thing you can do to help, get up, stretch and walk around at least once an hour.

Nothing will help like proper posture, head straight (not tilted down) when typing or reading. No slouching. Adjust the seat so there is a slightly backward tilt which reduces the load the back takes. And your feet should be firmly planted on the floor.

Your Shoes

Strutting stilettos causing a toe first downward pressure can cause your back and pelvis to become misaligned and can result in back pain. The normal heel-toe gait, the stress is passed on to the knees, hips and back. This creates a perfect position for pain from the knee going up to the lower back.

Backless shoes, flats and flip flops likewise do not provide stability. These can put additional stress on the spine due to the shifting that these shoes allow. If your body weight is not distributed properly, back injury and pain can result.

If you must have high heels, keep them 3 inches or under.

Extra Pounds

A few extra pounds around our middle, whether from indulgence or hormone imbalance, weight can cause pain. A large belly causes the pelvis to tilt out of alignment, With our body trying to maintain alignment, the back is put under a lot of strain.

The Solution to Mechanical Low Back Pain Causes

The water cure protocol has resolved low back pain causes for many.

Infection and Inflammation

Osteomyelitis or an infection of the discs that cushion the vertebrae or when they involve the discs that cushion the vertebrae, which is called discitis.

Spirochetosis, infection by spirochetes such as those that cause Lyme disease also cause arthritis pain. The Water Cures protocol can help eliminate the pain and bring under control the infection. At this time, it is not believed possible to totally eliminate the bacterial infection by spirochetes.

Sugar Induced Inflammation

Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup can also cause back pain. If you drink one too many soft drinks in a day, the excess sugar can cause severe pain in the back.

Candy, soda, pie, ice cream, crackers, ketchup, yogurt are loaded with sugar and often, high fructose corn syrup. Then there are pasta, potatoes and white rice and alcohol which turn into sugar in our body.

Of the 100 to 180 pounds of sugar we consume each year, less than 30 pounds are from the sugar bowl. The rest comes from foods and soft drinks.

As little as 2 teaspoons of sugar can off set your body chemistry and unbalance homeostasis. Our bodies have a unique balance needed to be able to repair and maintain life.

The Solution to Sugar Overdose

The water cure protocol has resolved low back pain causes for many.

Inflammation is one of the ways our immune system responds to assault or injury. When we consume too much sugar, our body releases insulin and stress hormones. These in turn trigger inflammation process. The places where we have the least circulation of the blood, we have the greatest risk of inflammation. This is why our joints and especially our back is at greatest risk.

One solution is to eat less sugar.

Since lifestyle sometimes does not allow us to control our diet as we would like, water cures provides a viable option.

Following the water cures protocol will help in two ways.

It will help dilute the insulin which will reduce the inflammation.

It will help with the delivery of the insulin since the properly hydrated cells can process better.

The salt and minerals in the salt helps the body more quickly find balance.

Using the water cure can help eliminate the sugar cravings too.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
