Have you ever had sciatic nerve pain? It is very painful and is a constant, throbbing pain. My sciatic nerve pain has been rearing its ugly head for the past four days. It has been so bad that it has waken me up in the middle of the night with sharp, shooting pains in my low back, right hip and going down my right leg.

I wrote about, “How to Alleviate Sciatic Nerve Pain Naturally,” back in February. I gave some good pointers on chiropractic adjustments and exercises I learned at physical therapy to help alleviate sciatic nerve pain.
A few days ago, I had to go to this article to remember what exercises to do for sciatic pain. But, I also needed something else to help me cope with the excruciating pain.
One of my readers (also a cousin) had left me a comment on my other article about sciatic pain. She suggested that I try 1 teaspoon of Tumeric combined with 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper in a shot glass of milk, drink it down and wait for half an hour for it to work.
When I was awakened the other night by the sciatic pain, I thought I would give this concoction a whirl. I put 1 teaspoon of Tumeric and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper in a juice glass because I was tired and got the amounts incorrect. I poured in a little bit of almond milk, stirred the two spices and drank it down.
About 30 minutes later, the sciatic nerve pain was completely gone! What a huge relief I felt! I was able to get back to sleep and sleep through the rest of the night.
I used this mixture, 1 teaspoon Tumeric, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and almond milk, for about four days in a row with great results each time. I could usually get through 6 to 7 hours with no pain after taking this.
I sure hope this can help you, too! I know first hand how painful sciatica can be.
It’s all about the journey…
