The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body, as it stretches from the buttocks and the lower back, down the legs, to the feet.
This nerve can often get inflamed or irritated, and this leads to debilitating pain that aggravates all movements.
The intensity of the sciatica pain may vary, but is never too mild. The pain is accompanied by numbness, prickling, and a feeling of heavy legs, as well as difficulties to move or stand.
The most common conventional treatment this issue includes painkillers, but they do not address the cause, and just soothe the symptoms.
In order to treat the issue from its root, you need to combine natural cures and remedies, and suitable stretches and exercises. If you suffer from sciatica pain, you should take 10 minutes of your time and try this effective natural treatment before bedtime:
Fill a bucket with hot water, but not boiling, and add a liter of apple cider vinegar and a handful of salt.
When the salt melts, soak the feet in the water until the water cools. Then, dry the feet with a towel, and go to sleep. Cover the legs well in order to be warm during the entire night.
The next day, wear warm socks and slippers all day long, and avoid walking barefoot.
This treatment will warm up your feet and thus alleviate the pain all the way to the lower back, to the other end of the sciatic nerve. The improvements will be felt almost immediately.
Repeat daily for best results.
