At one point or another in your life, you will experience some type of back pain. Back pain is one of the most common reasons that people go to the doctor, miss work and is the leading cause for ending up on disability worldwide. Back pain can interrupt your day and interfere with your plans. Luckily, there are preventative measures that you can take to help strengthen your back. However, in the event that sudden pain strikes, there are back pain remedies that you can try for relief. (1)
Many people opt for natural back pain remedies over pharmaceuticals these days - options like massage, herbs, essential oils, stretching and yoga are all thought to help relieve back pain. One of the things you may not have considered is adding magnesium to your routine. Somewhere between 70-80% of the population is magnesium deficient and requires regular supplementation of this mineral as part of a daily routine. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) states that magnesium helps support normal muscle and nerve function along with many other important bodily functions. Adding magnesium may be the boost your back is looking for. (2, 3)
Magnesium is a mineral that is important for normal bone structure in the body. People typically get magnesium through nutrition. However, magnesium supplements are frequently needed when there is a deficiency. Low magnesium levels in the body have been linked to diseases such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, clogged arteries, hereditary heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. (4)
Magnesium studies in relation to back pain have been going on for some time now. Each time researchers dive into studying how magnesium deficiency affects back pain in the body, they discover more information. A study conducted in 2004 actually was the first discovery of magnesium deficiency causing back pain. They were able to detect this through the use of myothermogram studies. Then another study in 2013 demonstrated that magnesium deficiency treated first with IV therapy followed by oral therapy helped to reduce back pain symptoms. (5,6)

Some of you may already know years ago, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
I can still recall what it felt like to have my life change overnight…
I went from an Executive Director of a non-profit organization, running marathons, rock climbing, hiking canyons and kayaking to being completely bedridden and staring at a wall for 15 hours a day.
Of course, I went to see many doctors but unfortunately I didn’t find the help I needed. So, I had to set off on my own journey to learn my true path to healing.
I’d pretty much turned-over every rock trying to find relief for my pain, sleep issues and myriad of other symptoms…
Fast-forward 18 years.
I was determined to climb one of the true wonders of the natural world, Machu Picchu, the mystical home of the Incas in Peru.
It was there, after a grueling day when my feet, knees, legs, and lower back hurt so bad, that I thought I would have to abandon hopes of our next climb which was Rainbow Mountain! That night I pulled out a little spray bottle of “aceite de magnesio” that a friend had given me before I left on my trip.
What the heck, I thought. I was desperate. And I applied it all over my body before bed.
Because of the grueling day, I woke up expecting to be immobilized, but instead we were off to climb Rainbow Mountain and…I was totally pain-free!
I know it sounds impossible, but it’s 1000% the truth.
