An alternative to taking the meds is doing yoga specifically designed to treat sciatica. And while that’s certainly a viable option for those who can afford classes, not everyone can perform the most helpful posts.
That’s where this home remedy comes in.
Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, can be used as a tonic to reduce the inflammation that occurs as a result of sciatica.
One way you can administer sciatica is by consuming it as tea. Dr. Weil’s recipe requires you to bring four cups of water to a boil, add one teaspoon of ground turmeric, simmer it for 10 minutes, strain and then add honey to taste.
If the tea is a bit too strong for your liking (turmeric does have a very distinctive taste), you can also, as per Home Remedies For Life’s instructions, sprinkle a quarter of a teaspoon of it on scrambled eggs or into soup, sauce or salad dressing. You should gradually increase the amount of turmeric you use until you make it to 1 teaspoon.
If you’re looking to skip tasting the turmeric altogether, you can also turn it into a paste that you apply on the area that is hurting.
When you’re ready to use it, apply the paste to the sore areas of your skin and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then, have a shower and wash it off.
Turmeric works by lowering levels of inflammation-fueling enzymes. It’s been used as a painkiller for centuries due to its proven effectiveness. It was confirmed by Malaysian scientists in 2010 to get rid of nerve pain, but it was used all over Asia long before then.
