Another herb is Turmeric. There is more information on it at www.foundhealth.com...
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
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
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.)
