I wanted to share what I found to help my lower back pain.
I suffered for over a year, went to several doctors trying to get help. None of them could find anything wrong so they could NOT help me. I used a heating pad which did allow me some relief.
There were days when I could hardly stand myself due to the pain that I had. And then something happened.
My daughter was listening to a local doctor on Fox Channel talk about Morton's toe. She had just been to a medical convention and wanted to share some of the *things that she had learned*. It seems that some people can not process Vitamin B 6 and this can cause lower back pain. My daughter called me and told me that this sounded just like I was experiencing and she wanted me to do some research on this and perhaps try the P5P.
I read up on Morton's toe and was quite surprised at what I read. I also went to the vitamin store and talked to the man there. He told me that IF the P5P was going to help me, then I would know before I finished the first bottle of it. It can help people who have issues with trying to process Vitamin B 6. I started taking this a year ago this past April. I was surprised since it helped me before I took 2 weeks of it. I am still taking it. If I happen to miss a dose, my back pain returns. I have no idea just how all of this works, but I know that the doctors had no clue what was wrong with me.
You have to get this P5P at a vitamin store. I take the capsule and the bottle is around $11.00. I make sure that I take it every day and I guess I will have to take it the rest of my life.
So for those of you who have lower back pain, I would suggest you do some research on this.....and then try the P5P.
I spoke to my doctor about taking it, (after the fact) and told him it was the processed form of Vitamin B 6. He said it was ok as the body only uses what it needs and then flushes out the rest.
I am sharing this here in hopes that it just might also help someone else.
