In this video, you will learn 5 natural ways to treat a herniated disc, a bulging disc or lower back pain.
The collagen diet is ideal for healing and repairing a damaged disc and tissue. You can find collagen in bone broth fluid, which when consumed regularly is the best diet you can do to heal and repair. Eating bone broth protein 2-3 times a day is a must.
You will also want to get more antioxidants through foods such as blueberries. The perfect breakfast would be a smoothie with blueberries, powdered collagen powder or bone broth protein, coconut milk and anti-inflammatory herbs such as ginger root. Then continue with the lunch and dinner of soup or stew made with bone broth protein.

Omega 3 fish oils
MSM Sulfur-containing supplement for joint repair
Anti-inflammatory herbs such as turmeric for damaged tissue
If you have poor posture, you will exert additional pressure on that disc and cause a herniated disc. This form of physical therapy assigns you a specific set of exercises and stretches to restore your posture and is crucial to treating this type of injury.
4. Prolotherapy (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma injections are important for repairing damaged tissue. When you hurt your lower back, the ligaments can become lax and your muscles can suffer spasms when trying to compensate, which may actually be the root cause of your pain.
5. Corrective Chiropractic Care
Corrective chiropractic is essential to re-train your body and recover the correct spinal curvatures. Since 90% of chiropractors would make a correction that could possibly cause the ligaments to become loose, it is crucial to find someone in your area who specifically practices corrective chiropractic care.
