Low back pain
By Dr Hulda Clark
We have been told that lower back pain originates in an inherited weakness of the spine at its base because we humans walk upright instead of on four legs. And we have been told that the bony hooks that keep the spine aligned are flatter in some families, making it harder for them to hold the spine together. We are also told that “proper exercises” could have kept this part of our bodies strong so lower back pain could be avoided.
These theories become obsolete when, without surgery or exercise or change in posture, lower back pain can be made to disappear quickly and permanently.
Acupressure massage and chiropractic can bring “miraculous” relief. The most severely crippled lower back pain sufferer can shuffle lamely into a chiropractor’s office and walk out normally, without pain or painkiller after treatments. So although there has been slippage of disc or spine, apparently it goes back into place rather easily.
If muscle relaxation is the clue, we must ask why these muscles spasm so easily. Any muscle spasms if you irritate or injure it suddenly. In fact, your whole body spasms and flinches if a sliver or bit of broken glass is in your shoe. If you remove these objects, the leg can walk normally.
Oxalic acid crystals are as sharp as broken glass. Use the kidney cleanse (page 549) to dissolve them and other stones. All lower back pain can be cured by removing the sharp crystals in the kidneys. It takes about three weeks to dissolve them. In some very severe cases, it may take six weeks.
Whether you have suffered a year or 20 years, the permanent cure is only weeks away.
Our bodies make eight or more different kinds of kidney “stones.” The oxalic acid variety is associated with sharp stabbing pains. In its effort to eliminate this extremely vicious acid your body neutralizes it with calcium first to make calcium oxalate. Your kidneys can keep a bit of calcium oxalate in solution but not a lot. The excess hardens into crystals. A glass of regular or iced tea (not herb tea or green tea) has about 20 mg of oxalic acid-way too much for kidneys to excrete. Tea is a toxic drink, not to be considered a beverage. Chocolate is very high in oxalate, too, and should not be used as a beverage (as cocoa).
Children should never drink tea or cocoa. Their delicate kidneys should not be faced with the daily burden of excreting large amounts of oxalic acid. And calcium used to neutralize oxalic acid is wasted. Calcium is a precious nutrient. It should be conserved for children’s bone development.
It isn’t necessary to find which variety of kidney crystals are causing your muscle spasms. Different herbs dissolve different kinds. And by combining them into a grand herbal mixture you can be dissolving all varieties at the same time.
Wherever oxalate crystals have formed, a particular bacterium, Proteus vulgaris, can be found. Does that bacterium somehow thrive on oxalate crystals? Or even help them form? Does Proteus itself contribute to lower back pain? Is lower back pain in reality two pains in one-the sharp jabbing of glass-like particles plus the inflammatory effect of bacteria? Fortunately, you can kill Proteus vulgaris electronically.
By using your new diagnostic skills, you can test your kidneys for crystals. The kidney stone varieties I have tested for are: calcium oxalate, uric acid, cysteine, cystine, monocalcium phosphate, dicalcium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate. All these varieties can be dissolved by the herbal mixture. But all can be formed again in a week!
To prevent oxalate formation stop drinking oxalic acid (eating oxalate rich vegetables is not significant-spinach, chard, rhubarb and sorrel all have their place in the diet). Also take magnesium and B6 supplements (as directed in the kidney cleanse).
To prevent phosphate crystals from forming, reduce phosphate consumption and drink milk as a calcium source. Keep your kidneys squeaky clean with herbs and copious water drinking. After drinking one quart of sterilized milk, two pints of water, one-half glass of homemade fruit juice and one-half glass of vegetable juice, there is little desire for additional beverages.
I have no understanding of what may cause cysteine or cystine stones (the genetic theory does not explain them either, considering that people without cystinuria make these stones). Since they are sulfur-containing, and I have seen them appear after taking sulfa-drugs, it may be wise to avoid use of sulfa-drugs if you have a choice, or go on the kidney cleanse afterward.
If you have severe lower back pain you probably have several kinds of stones. Some persons have all seven kinds!
