When people say back pain affects everyone, that really is the truth!
Not only did I struggle with middle back pain (and a bunch of other ailments like shoulder problems, knee pain, tendonitis) years ago before becoming an “expert” …
but my wife has also had several bouts of back pain over the years brought on initially due to a c-section birth. Well, a few days ago she had a flare up… no significant physical incident to bring it on like sneezing or picking up a heavy item, etc…
Instead, I feel that it was a combination of stress/worry about several current life situations that she/we are dealing with right now as well as some physical factors such as changes to her exercise program… she recently added running back into her program.
Anyway, not to bore you with her story, but I thought you might really benefit from the suggestions I gave her and the actions she has taken…
So, the first thing she did was rub in a few squirts of Rub on Relief … she has been applying it 2-3 times per day.
Then she jumped (not really, more like crawled) into our bed with both our large and medium size Far Infrared Heating Pads … and she has been lying on these just about every chance she gets (which isn’t much with 6 kids still at home, though I of course have stepped up to do as much as I can).
She has also been taking hot jacuzzi baths with sea salts (with magnesium) once a day… taking Heal-n-Soothe 1-2 times per day (3 capsules at a time though I’m trying to get her to up the dose – I take 6-8 at a time) to reduce the inflammation and pain.
In addition she is drinking a lot of water… increased her magnesium and vitamin D intakes (liquid supplements)… and also experimenting with various homeopathic and herbal muscle relaxants like kali carb, chamomile, valerian and others.
And last, since it seems that one of the biggest underlying causes is stress, worry, negative energy, etc, she is also spending as much time as possible relaxing… reading… laughing.
As you likely know, there are of course many other things that can be done, but this is where she’s starting and this is likely all she’ll need as she’s getting close to “back to normal”.
Anyway, I hope you found this informative and maybe it has given you a few things that you have not yet tried. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on how she’s feeling 🙂

thanks for all the useful information and Good luck with your wife. I already purchased infrared heating pad. Im waiting for it. Thanks again
The Far Infrared heating pad does wonders for my back too. So does consistent use of Heal n Soothe and Inversion. In addition I’m using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)made popular by Gary Craig, Dr. Joesph Mercola and others.Tapping on meridian points while repeating set up statements and positive affirmations helps to clear energy pathways. Emotional healing helps to restore circulation thus relaxing the muscle spasms.
Thank you for additional tips gained from this site and from the very helpful new book you’ve written. The very readable and easy to understand writing style helped me to understand both my affliction and treatment options.
Best of luck to you and your wife! I’m really learning a lot from The 7-Day Back Pain Cure. Thank you so much for this awesome book and all the great resources on this site!
wishing u n ur wife all the best n thanks for ur usefull information that i get through lose the back pain.com
I noticed that you take alot more than the recommended number of Heal and Soothe. How do you decide how many to take, by body weight, or what?
If these NUBAX machines are so great, why isn’t your wife using one? Or is she?
I am really soor to haer of your wifes suffering. I have just learht of it. I hope shr is getting over it now.I am wishing her a speedy recorvey.
Good luck to you both.
im very sory to hear that i wish her the best of luck and olso wish she will feel better very soon
I’m sorry to hear about your wife’s health problems, but with all the help that you are able to give her, I’m sure that she will soon be in tip-top shape.
My best wishes to you both and to your family.
I take issue with Patti’s below the belt remarks. You are a man of class and integrity as I’m sure your wife is also. Don’t forget the walking and yes the NUBAX.
i wish your wife well.have you any herbal pain relief for neck and head [neuropathic]after a SAH? regards–pat
How coincidental that I just read this now. I know your wife is in good hands & sounds like you 2 could use a little extra help around the house with all of your kidlets!
I had just barely sent you an email about how Heal n Soothe has taken a nasty tendonitis from a 10+ on the pain scale, down to about a 2, within a day & a half! I’ve just been taking 3 at a time, 3 times a day ~ just yesterday & today. Unbelievable pain relief ~ or should I say believable as the help I’ve gotten from the LTBP program has been incredible. Keep up all the great work!
I completely concur with Joyce’s email of 18-10-09. I have also found much relief from Heal-n-Soothe as well as EFT and your Far Infrared Heatpad. Patience in healing oneself is important as well as keeping the stress levels down as much as possible. Laughter can often be the best medicine of all, as we forget our ailments – plus the tax man has not yet charged us for laughing (long may it last)! Good luck and God Speed to returning good health.
I wish your wife a speedy recovery.Regards
I don’t have a shipping number as you requested but I have been following you advices. Thanks
I jsut saw your e-mail and am suffering from shoulder pain from an old injury (rotator cuff) I did not fall or have an accident. How can I get this heal and soothe? Can I get it at a local store or is it a prescription ? I would like to try it for my mussels are sore and I am sure it is inflammation. How can I get a infrared heating pad? Will a regular one work?
