Sciatica is a bothersome pain caused by inflammation around the sciatic nerve and an aggravated vata dosha. It extends all the way from your lower back to your feet, and all those who suffer from it can tell you how painful it is. But don’t worry, these home remedies are exactly what you need to ease your pain while you seek help from a professional Ayurvedic Doctor.
Due to the vata-pacifying qualities of garlic, this drink is an excellent anti-inflammatory and reduces the inflammation around the sciatic nerve.
Combine 2 cups of milk, 1 cup of water and 10 crushed lahsun ki kali (garlic clove) in a saucepan.
Allow it to simmer on low heat for 5-6 minutes.
Add honey to taste and drink twice a day.
Ginger is an Ayurvedic superfood. It pacifies vata and fires the Agni (digestive fire). This helps in effectively eliminating ama (toxins) from the body, which is another cause of Sciatica.
Add a piece of adrak (ginger) to a cup of boiling water.
Allow it to infuse for 8-10 minutes before straining the tea.
Add honey to taste and enjoy hot 2-3 times a day.
Methi (fenugreek) seeds are excellent at pacifying vata and it is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Combine 2 teaspoons of ground methi with milk until you achieve a spreadable consistency.
