sciatica - on left side and down leg till knee

Since I was pregnant with my son Jack ie with the weight of the pregnancy I developed sciatica. Now, whenever my life gets too busy I get very bad sciatica - I am a mum with kids 10 and 12 and we have moved to Italy 2 years ago where I was responsibile for settling everyone in as my husband did not speak v good italian and still doesn't. I have also had  a swollen stomach for about a year now (even though I am v slim). I had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy and they found a hiatus hernia. I feel very tired at the  moment- usually I am bursting with energy from dawn tilll dusk. 


Any ideas of how I can get rid of my sciatica and swollen tummy?

Homeopathy should be able to help you with the sciatica.  I have helped many people with sciatica over the years, even a man whose sciatica was so debilitating that he was unable to move from the couch for many months.  In homeopathy we do not treat disease diagnosis, but the person, so I (or the homeopath that you choose would need to take your homeopathic case.  Please visit my website at www.homeopathyforhealth.net to download my questionnaire and read about my practice.  I do phone consultations with people from around the world.  I looked up the three symptoms you mentioned:  hiatus hernia, sciatica and bloated or swollen abdomen and there were seven remedies that covered these symptoms.  So you can see that homeopathy has wonderful remedies in its tool chest to help.  We just have to match you to the right remedy.

Sciatica can be eliminated with deep tissue massage and acupuncture. A swollen stomach suggests digestive issues that could be due to inflammation, allergies. I would suggest you see a naturapath if you can find one for an evaluation. Probiotics may be helpful. Low energy can be due to nutritional deficiencies or adrenal exhaustion. We use Juice Plus here at our clinic and supplements for the adrenals.  Hope this helps a little!

I personally experienced 6 months of being flat on my back with sciatica so i know what it is like to live with this type of debilitating symptom. I have made a full recovery. In short the problem is a combination of muscular, neurological and psychological. So stress can have a major affect and be the underlying cause of the symptom.

When you consider that the brain communicates with every part of the physical body when you stress it disrupts the communication between the area of the brain the issues are being stored and in your case the sciatica nerve.

Bioenergy healing www.bioenergyhealing.org.uk helped to overcome all my spinal conditions. It can release the memory pattern on both psychological level as well as cellular level i.e nerve.
