Essential oils for back pain natural remedies for lower back pain Tweaked back natural solution

She’s also the sweetest and cutest dog you’ll ever meet. So, to save her life(literally lol), took a dive into a slope to catch her and tweaked my back. I don’t take any medication over-the-counter or prescription. There are lots of over–the-counter pain relievers, but they all have some kind of side effect including bleeding in the stomach.

Gotta Love... Lemons!

benefits of lemons eat lemons lemon detox lemons lemons and cleaning lemons and deodorizing

I’m completely obsessed with lemons. I can remember being five years old and squeezing a lemon with salt on it, into my mouth. (still do this) In fact, I go through dozens of lemons each week! I use them for almost everything including cleaning and deodorizing. Some health benefits: Nutritional value - for the reason they are a good source of Vitamin B6, Iron and Potassium, and a great source of Dietary Fiber and Vitamin C. Detoxifier- since they’re like the digestive juices created in the stomach, when eaten your liver starts producing bile. Bile, helps food move through the...
