Hey guys, Axe here, of natural medicine, al nutritionist and founder of draxe . In this tutorial I’m going to share with you how to heal a herniated disc. If you have a herniated disc, a disc bulge, a desiccated disc or any sort of low back injury or low back pain, these tips can absolutely help you. I can tell you from experience. I’ve had a herniated disc from lifting weights and doing other things in the past. These things help me personally. Also, I’ve seen them help thousands of patients that I’ve taken care of over the years. In this tutorial you’re going to learn the five steps to heal a herniated disc including the diet, the supplements and natural treatments.
Let’s start with the diet you need to be following to heal a herniated disc. First off, you need to give your body the specific nutrients it needs in order to heal the area. You need to follow what I call the collagen diet. Your body needs collagen to help heal and repair a damaged disc and tissues. In order to do that, collagen is found in bone broth protein or bone broth liquid. Drinking bone broth on a regular basis is the number one dietary thing you can do. You can get bone broth. You can make bone broth at home yourself. You can buy a liquid bone broth and have it shipped to you frozen or sometimes find it in your grocery store.
Bone broth liquid, doing around two to three servings a day is an absolute must. What I recommend you do is make a big CrockPot soup every single day. That’s what you consume. Maybe chicken, celery, onions, carrots, some organic chicken and some chicken bone broth, that’s going to give you some of the nutrients you need to help heal and repair your low back or neck or wherever you might have a herniated disc. Also, getting more antioxidants in things like blueberries. The ideal diet would look like you have a smoothie for breakfast with collagen protein powder or bone broth protein powder. Also some blueberries and some coconut milk. Maybe.
Some antiinflammatory herbs. You put a little bit of ginger root in there. Consuming that every morning for breakfast is the perfect breakfast. For lunch and dinner, doing that warm one pot or slow cooker or CrockPot soup or stew with the bone broth. Man, you’re going to heal fast that way with that type of diet. The best supplements for healing a herniated disc include a collagen protein or a bone broth protein powder. Those contain the amino acids glutamine, glycine, proline, as well as arginine. These are the amino acids that your body needs for collagen production and to help heal damaged tissues. Also, an omega3 supplement. I recommend a fish oil 1000 to.
2000 milligrams a day. Or, a fish roe like a wild fish roe supplement is great. Any type of those omega3 fats is important. Also supplements such as MSM. That’s a sulfur containing supplement that helps with joint repair. Glucosamine and chondroitin can be good. Also, antiinflammatory herbs such as turmeric or the compound in there called curcumin is another great supplement that can help you heal and repair damaged tissues helping you heal any type of herniated disc. That’s one end of the spectrum. The next thing you’ve got to do is follow these healthy both lifestyle and natural treatment.
Tips. The first natural treatment you want to get is do something called Egoscue. Egoscue is a form of physical therapy. Not just any physical therapy. It’s Egoscue that can help you in restoring your posture. This is crucial. Look up Egoscue in your area. Let’s say you live in Philadelphia or in Orlando, Florida, or Dallas, Texas or Los Angeles, California. Look up Egoscue Orlando or Egoscue Florida and find someone in your local area. They’re going to prescribe a specific customized exercise plan for you and have you do exercises to help restore your posture. If you have poor posture or what’s called lowercrossed syndrome or uppercrossed syndrome, that’s going to put extra stress on that disc causing.
A herniated disc. Again, make sure you see an Egoscue practitioner. Step number four is going to be getting what’s called prolotherapy or PRP. Prolotherapy or platelet rich plasma injections actually are going to help repair the damaged tissue. A lot of times what can happen when you herniate a disc is maybe you injured your low back or some of the ligaments. The ligaments become lax. Just like when you stretch an ACL or tear an ACL in your knee or let’s say you sprain your ankle, those ligaments then can become loose. Then, the muscles have to make up for it and become spasm. That can be actually the root cause of your pain.
