Hi! A friend of mine has been suffering from cervical spondylitis for many years now. He has long working hours and is not very motivated to exercise. Yoga/physiotherapy provide only temporary relief. Is there any home-remedy for local application that may help relieve his pain?

If she is not ready to excercise and change the lifestyle which she is currently leading it will give lots of troble to her later in her life in these cases i highly suggest to take continouse sitting of acupuncture treatment which will atleast give her great relief for atleast some months.

secondly as home remedies i suggest her-

  1. Apple cider vinegar pack- Soak the napkin in the vinegar and place this on your neck. Soak the napkin in the vinegar and place this on your neck. Repeat this twice a day until you get relief from the neck pain.
  2. ice pack application- Place the ice cubes inside the towel and place it on the area that is aching.
  3. Epsom salt bath/ pack- Fill three-fourths of the bathtub with warm water and add the Epsom salt to it.
  4. muastard oil massage with camphor - Lightly warm up the oil and add camphor in it untill it melts and then massage your neck with it.
  5. Avoid using soft mattress and bulky pillows.

The most important of all in our body is our nervous system. It is key to the health of trillions of cells in our body. This is the reason why our spinal cord integrity is most important and stress on nervous system manifests change in spinal cord.

Two places where the concentration of nerves exists in our spine are - neck or cervical region and lower back (L1, L2, L3). Upper body organs (lungs, heart, arms, etc) nerves are in neck region and lower body organs (stomach, digestion system, kidney, etc) nerves in lower back.


There are numerous reasons for Cervical spondylitis but one thing common to all is the increase nerve traffic in the neck region leading to pain. Application of oils or massage will always provide temporary relief only unless one takes step to reduce the nerve traffic in the neck region.


Physical exercise of neck, arms, lungs and heart (aerobic) must be done. These exercise must not be strenuous but must be rhythmic with breathing. Please download this app on mobile and practice daily.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ishafoundation.app.yoga


Food Increase the quantity of fruits, raw vegetables, dry fruits, sprouts and coconut in the diet. Best is to avoid cooked food, salt, sugar and oil.


Sun Bathing Minimum one hour daily.


Meditation Calming the nerve action is best achieved by meditation. To begin even five minutes of conscious breathing will greatly help. Sit in a comfortable position with eyes closed and do reverse counting from 100 with each breath.

Very Nice , You have given many different different ways to apply.

Your friend could try applying garlic in vegetable oil or even ginger juice. This may help him relieve his pain. But then remedies like these are only temporary measures. I would highly recommend him to work on his body overall - from eating habits to rest to work outs.

Very True ✔️👌
Healthy Eating Habits and Healthy Lifestyle are main.

Well, a solution cannot be found from the same place where the problem was created.

Topical applications will only provide temporary relief. He can try ginger juice or drinking water infused with cinnamon or tulsi.

However, he has to either look for another job or take breaks every 30 minutes from the desk and do a round of stretching.  During work time, ask him to keep his shoulders and neck relaxed and in a natural straight position. He can ake adjustments to his chair and desk so he doesn't have to strain forwards and the spine is kept straigt.

In the weekend atleast, let him be away from the computer and phone to rest the area.
