I am not claiming this is a cure or that it will help everyone suffering from back pain.
There are a couple of herbs for back pain that I wanted to bring to your attention that you may or may not know.
The first is Mistletoe. There is more information on it at

Mistletoe, also known as Hu Ji Sheng in Pinyin, is used differently under different cultural backgrounds. In the eastern culture, especially in China, it is often viewed as a healing herb that can treat low back pain
Another herb is Turmeric. There is more information on it at

Effect of Turmeric on Low Back Pain and Sciatica As noted above, turmeric has been used to treat arthritis (sometimes the cause of low back pain and/or sciatica) in Ayurveda for centuries. Also, through research it has been found that turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful for treating lower back and sciatica pain that results from inflammation. (This is how many pharmaceutical drugs for low back pain/sciatica work - through anti-inflammatory action.)
I noticed back pain relief with Mistletoe. My father noticed it with Turmeric. We both have low back pain and sciatica. I wonder how well both herbs would work together. Either of us have yet to try the specific combination of the two. I was checking to see if there are any others on ATS that had tried the the specific combination or one of the two herbs mentioned above. If you had please share your experience. If anyone decides to try this combination, please come back to this page to report your findings. I will be trying it soon, no matter what replies that this topic may bring. I will be getting Turmeric extract pills. I couldn't find Mistletoe at my local herbal store so I purchased AZO Yeast 60 tablets (which has Mistletoe in it) and I took 2 pills 3x's a day. I have yet to decide if I will try that again or find liquid Mistletoe Extract. If anyone can give me advice on that to help me decide, It would also be appreciated

I'll vouch for turmeric, it is in mustard and along with the isothiocyanate in mustard it does stop cramping muscles. I have studied mistletoe a little but am not interested in that. It can have some negative side effects in some people. I'm not about to take a chance advising to use that. I have done a lot of experimenting on myself but not with mistletoe yet. I have other methods that work pretty good already for central nervous system pain.

I have heard of negative side effects from Mistletoe taken intravenous or IV especially in the beginning which would make me nervous, symptoms like feeling feverish. The review of AZO around the internet looks fine and seems fine with me maybe because the other half of the ingredients is Boneset. I am not sure about the liquid extract. Thanks

I'm into natural medicine, and my husband has chronic lower back pain because of a bulging disk. He also has digestive issues caused by inflammation. I had him taking turmeric for a while in capsule form, and he said that it only made his stomach worse. I'm skeptical if he even took the pills longer than a few days because I can't get him to do anything good for himself. I've been cooking with turmeric for a long time now, and I can say that he hasnt been complaining as much about his back, and he hasn't had a UC flair up in over a year. So I like to think it does work!

I also had digestive issues caused by inflammation and pau d' arco worked for me and it did bother my stomach for a while but it went away. I think Turmeric could do the same. Thanks for the warning

The best thing that I found for digestive issues is butter milk and cornbread--butter milk daily. Cornbread for a late evening, or anytime snack. It's what the old mountain folk used to use for digestive problems(constipation, etc..).

I know a lot of people who have, but I haven't really delved into turmeric yet, but I'm going to.

Nothing has really helped my back pain except for pain meds. Nothing, and I've tried almost everything else.

your probably better off with proteolytic enzymes, you need to take as a suppository I believe as they can't pass through your stomach wall to get into the blood system you also need to have an enema with warm distilled water before you take the enzymes.

although if you can get some fresh papaya or pineapple this might help as these have the enzymes in, although i'm still working on how the enzymes in these get into your blood stream and the proteolytic enzymes don't.

mistletoe does allegedly have side effects although it also negates the side effects of chemotherapy and so that could be where the mistletoe is bad source comes from.
if you have fresh mistletoe not pill form put a tiny piece on your skin and do a reaction test your skin is your third kidney and will show if you are allergic to it research the ways to test on the net as there is more to this than I have said.
