PAIN LOWER BACK
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT'S CAUSING IT? WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Are you prone to a problem with 'Pain lower back'?
The lower back is a fascinating and intricate part of the body that is home to the colon, intestines, uterus, bladder, prostate, kidney and spine. Pain in any one of these areas can masquerade as a back ache. For example, pain in your colon can feel like lower back pain. Colic, inflammation, and irritation of the colon is a common cause of lower back pain in Ayurveda. Flushing stagnant bowels can relieve this type of pain in your lower back.
Stress tightens the hips and may cause you to change your posture unnaturally. Muscle tension and posture changes can create undue stress in your lower back. The kidney and lower back are also very sensitive to the cold. Catching a chill can cause your back to tense up.
Dehydration and kidney stress can also cause lower back pain. Vata people will experience pain related to kidney stress after eating diuretic foods like parsley, asparagus or celery.
Lower back pain may be referred from other nearby organs, such as the uterus, bladder or urinary tract. Mid back pain may be kidney related. Finally, lower back injury can cause back pain.
Disclaimer: Conditions such as 'Pain lower back' that cause tissue changes could be serious and should be checked by a medical doctor.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKSARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?
WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?Ayurveda strengthens the body, in addition to addressing the disorder. It take a holistic, systemic approach, instead of myopically focusing on the disorder in question. Ayurveda shows a person how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using materials from home, so they can optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing with an exceptional focus on digestion.
HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of gunas / qualities. For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.
On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalances (gunas). By eating an optimal diet that balances your gunas, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
