Sciatica is defined as an inflammation of the supporting tissues of the sciatic nerves of the leg. This condition is characterized by a pain running from the lumbar (lower back) region to the back of the legs. Sciatica pains – felt in either one or both of the legs

A large proportion of the diet must be carbohydrates, which facilitate proper movement of bowels, thereby bettering the body’s digestion.

Green leafy vegetables should be incorporated in the diet as they provide fibre which improves digestion and elimination of wastes.

Fruits such as bananas and apples are recommended.

Heavy meals must be avoided as they take a long time to digest. This may exert undue pressure on the lower back region.

While sleeping, lie straight on your back or with bent knees supported by a pillow.

Do some light sciatica exercise such as light walking and jogging. Do not exercise if your condition is extremely painful.

Taking hot and cold compresses on an alternate basis can be quite helpful in relieving pain.

Apply a paste made of crushed garlic cloves and water to the affected part, or rub a cut clove directly onto the area.

Eat 1-3 buds of fresh cloves daily.

Due to lack of blood circulation it happens.
Also walking or standing or sitting for longer period will happen such numbness.

Massage the portion repeatedly.

Tell her to do sitting exercises if she is having difficulty in walking for example:

1. Sitting on a chair tell her to raise her legs horizontally together which will give a stretch to her hamstrings and then dorsiflex the foot. By doing it for 20 times it will help in relieving pain.

2. By sleeping in a supine position keep one leg on the knee of other making a four(figure of 4 position) Try this for 10 times each leg.

These exercises will help.

Thank you.

I recommend her to include a plant-based diet including high fiber and calcium-rich food such as green leafy vegetables and include ashguard juice early morning to improve digestion so that the calcium can be absorbed properly by the body rather than fulfilling bodily needs of calcium through ossification of bones.

I highly suggest her to follow yoga for atleast30 min in a day. please follow the given link for detailed practice of yoga asana for sciatica.

Kindly avoid excess of standing or standing work. 

Do leg stretching exercises. 
Do paschimottan asana, trikon asana,vriksha asana,hal asana.

Walk barefoot on grass every morning. 

Put your feet in warm water for about 30min. 

As far as the diet part is considered, be on a complete plant based diet. 
Have fresh homemade fruit juices and coconut water.

Hi there,

Sciatic nerve pain is often the result of a lumbar disc herniation which comprises the sciatic nerve. However, there are some other factors that cause irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve which can also cause sciatica.

Stretching exercise is the best to improve the range of motion and strengthens the spinal muscles as well. These are some of the commonly practised and most effective stretching exercises for sciatica. With proper stretching and strengthening exercises sciatica can be treated easily within few weeks depending on it's severity.

• Reclining pigeon pose;

Here you have to lie down in supine position ,bring your right leg up and bend to a right angle then interlock your fingers behind the right thigh. Next, lift up your other leg and place your right ankle over the left knee. Hold this posture for few counts and practice the same over the other side. Gradually you can increase the count as you practise. This exercise will open up the hip as you stretch. Repeat for 3 sets daily.

• knee to the opposite shoulder;
Here you have to lie down on your back, lift your right le g up and flex it , interlock your fingers or clasp your hands around your knees then pull it gently across your body and towards the left shoulder. Hold it for few counts as you feel the stretch and release it. Continue the same practice on the other side. Repeat for 3 sets daily.

• Following are some of the recommended yogasana;
Bhujangasana, baddhakon asana and Ekapada Rajakapot asana ( pigeon pose )
Note; Exercise should not be painful or strenuous. Practice it as gently as you can . A proper exercise will trigger the release of endorphin naturally to reduce the pain.

•Make sure that you lie down or sit on a comfortable and soft cushion so as not to further worsen the impingement of sciatic nerve.
• Avoid standing for very long. This may aggregate the condition.
• Along with exercise, you can also use some basic remedies such as applying cold ice to reduce the inflammation and then apply hot fomentation or moist heat. This will help reduce the inflammation and increase the blood supply to the affected parts.

Go for anti-inflammatory diet ;
•Consuming garlic and ginger will help relieve the information because of their anti-inflammatory properties. You may also used it as a poultice or apply it topically.
• consume fruits such as pineapple, berries, grapes and veggies such as onion, broccoli, dark leafy greens and herbal teas .

सियाटिका -सियाटिक नर्व के पास दूषित पदार्थों के जमा हो जाने,  संक्रमण हो जाने, रक्त में अम्लीयता के बढ़ जाने या कभी-कभी रीढ़ की हड्डी पर चोट लगने की वजह से हो जाता है  !


निम्नलिखित योग व प्राकृतिक चिकित्सा द्वारा इससे छुटकारा पाया जा सकता है -


 प्रतिदिन गुनगुने पानी में नींबू का सेवन करें - यह रक्त में स्थित अम्लीयता को कम कर देता है व मल का निष्कासन करने में भी सहायक है !


आसन -शलभासन ,भुजंगासन, पवनमुक्तासन ,उत्तानपादासन ,शवासन - कमर की मांसपेशियों को मजबूत करने में सहायता करता है व रक्त संचार बढ़ाता है !


योगिक सूक्ष्म ब्यायाम -पैर के पंजों को ऊपर- नीचे ,दाएं -बाएं व घुटनों से मोड़ें व फैलाएं (प्रत्येक 10 बार)-पैर की मांसपेशियों को सक्रिय रखता है एवं रक्त संचार बढ़ाता है !

Many issues can cause an inflammation of the sciatic nerve - your sluggish liver, acidic ph leaching the lumbar discs, unclean GUT , intestines with rotting food deposits inflaming nerves also leading to the legs. 

Calcium deposits across the body. Some viruses which are long term in the organs, which have come to eat the decomposing toxins in the body would have made the body their home for years growing stronger with fine while the body weakens with wrong lifestyle. Their nurotoxins are like acids and the release on any nerve can cause inflammation. Similar nervous issues can cause vericose veins, herpes, facial paralysis, strokes, TGN etc. just that the names are different as per the symptoms studied by the medical community in different places in the body. On the Lower end of the spine,  viral activity swells up the nerves in the lumbar spine, forcing the discs to move and causing the nerves to get squeezed too. 

All the issues are because of acidity rising in the body while body needs an alkaline balance to function. 


When the body has been fed with fats for all the three meals of the day, the blood eventually becomes toxic and viscous. Heart has to really work harder to pump that soup / jelly into the veins and arteries and suffers to pull it from lower extremities . That’s why people have it more in the legs and not in the hands. Typically such blood is usually dehydrated. Water component ( not H2O) tends to expand and make space when blood flows. But due to high amount of fat, lack of oxygen the toxins fill up the spaces. 



If high acidic foods ( not coming under category of fruits veg veggies greens majorly) are injested, their ph is less than normal, the stomach does not need to make it acidic to process. The pancreas won’t produce the alkaline buffers to the blood to neutralise the acidity raised by the stomach. So this acidic food in its state reaches the next few levels like the duodenum which are not geared for this ph level and bile from liver and gallbladder is called to rescue this balance. As this bile continues to be overproduced, liver becomes tired. If liver and gallbladder are not in a good working condition, enough Bile is not made available in the duodenum, and this is how acidic food reaches the intestines. . As liver weakens, the body cleaning  is also compromised and blood continues to carry acidic  toxins that have the liver could not manage and have reached the intestines where nutrients get absorbed. I went to acidity in the blood goes up, the blood first uses of the alkaline buffers present in its blood plasma to bring the blood closer to an alkaline pH. Unfortunately because of continuous supply of acidic foods to the body, the level of alkaline buffers is often very low. If the blood pH value falls below this range, then all the bodily fluids such as urine, lymphatic fluid, semen, Cerebrospinal fluids, saliva everything starts becoming acidic. This disrupts all the cellular function in the body and disturbs the balance. To prevent such a state of decline, the blood starts reducing its acidity by neutralising it with one of the most alkaline substance in the body that is calcium from the bones. So blood starts dissolving the calcium from the bones in its self to reach an ideal pH level. This is also called leaching  of calcium. Blood is a supplier and also a retriever . It will choose parts of the bone where it can leach  very quickly such as the ends of the bones .As it continues to do so, that part of the joint weakens and produces a pain and inflammation. There will also be severe obstruction of blood flow, the viscosity of blood will be thicker. All these factors lead to the accumulation of toxins across the body.

मेरुदंड की नीचे से ऊपर की ओर दिन में दो बार तिल के तेल से घड़ी की सीधी दिशा में (clockwise) और घड़ी की उलटी दिशा में (anti clockwise) मालिश करें। नरम हाथों से, बिल्कुल भी प्रेशर नहीं देना है।

हमारा शरीर 5 तत्व से बना हुआ है वो पाँच तत्व का सामंजस्य ठीक प्रकार से होते ही शरीर पूर्णतया स्वस्थ हो जाएगा।

1 आकाश तत्व- एक खाने से दूसरे खाने के बीच में विराम दें। रोज़ाना 15 घंटे का उपवास करें जैसे रात का भोजन 7 बजे तक कर लिया और सुबह का नाश्ता 9 बजे लें।

2 वायु तत्व- लंबा गहरा स्वाँस अंदर भरें और रुकें फिर पूरे तरीक़े से स्वाँस को ख़ाली करें रुकें फिर स्वाँस अंदर भरें ये एक चक्र हुआ। ऐसे 10 चक्र एक टाइम पर करना है। ये दिन में चार बार करें।

खुली हवा में बैठें या टहलें।

3 अग्नि तत्व- सूर्य उदय के एक घंटे बाद या सूर्य अस्त के एक घंटे पहले का धूप शरीर को ज़रूर लगाएँ। सर और आँख को किसी सूती कपड़े से ढक कर। जब भी लेंटे अपना दायाँ भाग ऊपर करके लेटें ताकि आपकी सूर्य नाड़ी सक्रिय रहे।

4 जल तत्व- खाना खाने से एक घंटे पहले नाभि के ऊपर गीला सूती कपड़ा लपेट कर रखें या खाना के 2 घंटे बाद भी ऐसा कर सकते हैं।

मेरुदंड (स्पाइन) सीधा करके बैठें। हमेशा इस बात ध्यान रखें और हफ़्ते में 3 दिन मेरुदंड का स्नान करें। 

मेरुदंड स्नान के लिए अगर टब ना हो तो एक मोटा तौलिया गीला कर लें बिना निचोरे उसको बिछा लें और अपने मेरुदंड को उस स्थान पर रखें।

5 पृथ्वी- सब्ज़ी, सलाद, फल, मेवे, आपका मुख्य आहार होगा। आप सुबह खीरे का जूस लें, खीरा 1/2 भाग +धनिया पत्ती (10 ग्राम) पीस लें, 100 ml पानी मिला कर पीएँ। 2 घंटे बाद फल नाश्ते में लेना है।

दोपहर में 12 बजे फिर से इसी जूस को लें। इसके एक घंटे बाद खाना खाएँ। शाम को नारियल पानी लें फिर 2 घंटे तक कुछ ना लें। रात के खाने में सलाद बिना नमक  के खाएँ।

 दर्द वाले भाग पर गीली मिट्टी का लेप लगाएँ या खीरा + धनिया + तिल पीस कर पेस्ट बना लें। इस पेस्ट को 20 मिनट के लिए लगाएँ और फिर साफ़ कर लें। इससे दर्द में तुरन्त आराम मिलेगा।
