2. Don't rest too much in back pain

When a person gets back pain, people around him/her tell to rest. Trust me don't do this, if you rest, then your back pain can get worse.

There is however one effective way to redcue the back pain and that is sleep like a "LOG" but in the other direction with your right hand under your face and make sure that you sleep on the floor, that is important. Do it for 1 week and your pain would be gone. Trust me sleeping like this with right hand under the face is really difficult but it will help in relief of back pain.

3. Massage for back pain

If you are having back pain one of most effective and common way of reducing back pain is having a massage. Yes, back pain won't go away with massage but your pain would be significantly reduced.

4. Relax  your body 

Yes, sometimes it happens that unconsciously individual's body parts get stressed out and that individual doesn't know about it. This usually occurs because of emotional tension. That is why mediation is so important and which you see everyday in the morning on the T.V. It will help your body to relax and this can cure the back pain because when you are in control of mood then there would be no tension.

5. Swimming

Different Home Remedies for Pain in Knee

This blog post will provide you extensive information on how to relief yourself from the pain in knee. So let's get digging shall we :)


Knee is that part of our body on which almost no one gives even a second thought unless you start to feel pain in knee. It's one of the most complex and beautifully engineered body part created by nature and because of it's complex design, knees can hold the whole body weight for life. Of-course when pain in knee occurs, or when an individual start to see knee pain symptoms it's because he/she didn't paid attention in the first place. Don't worry there are numerous remedies which can help the pain in knee go away.

1. Stay Slim

If you are getting overweight then you must try to reduce it, because sooner or later you will feel pain in knee. When an individual gets overweight, different body parts feel stressed and knee is one of them. Consider this example, if you are overweight by 20 pound or 10 kg at most then when you move, you will put almost 50 kg or 100 pounds of weight on your each knee on each step. Yes, that's right, you read it right.

2. Feet Posture

A lot of times when pain in knee occurs, it's because of the feet posture. If your feet are Pronated, then you should at all cost make your feet posture to "Normal Pronation". This is really important because if the posture of your foot is not right then your will feel pain in knee. You can easily bring your foot back to normal posture by buying shoes designed by podiatrist.

3. Are You Buying the Right Kind of Shoes ?

If you are used to high heel shoes ( this goes for both man and woman ) then there is a bad new for you. When you wear high heel shoes, you are deliberately putting body weight forward which in turn badly affects the knee. So if you are feeling pain in knee when you wear high heel shoes then please stop! Understand this; your body is sending you knee pain symptoms which over time if ignored will get worse. "Health is Wealth".

4. Running will only increase the Pain

A lot of people especially the athletes believe that if they are feeling pain in knee, then if they start running or keep running the pain will eventually go away. This is wrong, if knee is in pain then running will make it even worse. Keep in mind that knee is different than biceps, triceps etc. If knee gets injured then it will really take for you to recover.

5. The Surface 

If you do jogging then consider jogging on the grass, running tracks, or in the forest paths. A lot of people like to run on the side of road or on the pedestrian side which is wrong, because when you run on road or on hard surface compared to soft surface your knee takes much more stress.

Two Simple and Effective Exercises Which Can Help You During Pain in Knee

1. Hamstring Stretch 

This is one really simple yet highly effective exercise to heal the pain in knee. First, you have to lie straight on your back. Now raise any leg first, hold your thigh straight with the help of your hands. Second, you now have to straighten your knee, but do it slowly. When you start feeling a mild stress in your thigh, stop at that point. Hold your body in this position for about 30 seconds, then slowly lower the leg. Now do this same method with your other leg. Do this exercise 2 to 3 times a day, it won't bite.

2. The great Calf Stretch Exercise

This exercise has to be done standing. Stand two feet in front of the wall. Bring your right foot forward ( lunge it ) while keeping your left leg as straight as possible. Keep the right leg a bit bent,  now lean towards the wall, while keeping your hands on wall, this will support the body. When you feel a mild stretch in the calf , stop at that point. Keep yourself in the particular position for about 20 seconds and come back to normal position. Do the same with the left leg.

Eating Disorder

When people are trying to lose weight; they sometimes go in a disorder which is called Eating Disorder. In eating disorder an individual starts eating less then the normal body requires. Here is typical example which will clarify everything.

If an individual weighs 112 pounds and that individual is size six. Based on this data if that individual eats 500 or less calories daily then yes, that individual has a eating disorder. Eating disorder is psychological disorder because when the individual goes into program of losing weight, he/she with the passage of time may get into habit of eating less than required. This usually starts when an individual sees himself/ herself as becoming popular by losing weight ( yes, when you are losing weight people around you start noticing your body change and you start to feel proud). This psychologically starts to create a goal in the mind of the individual that people are admiring him/ her, so that pride should not fall at any cost and that's the point where one falls into eating disorder.

By the way don't confuse yourself "eating disorder" with "selective disorder" both are different.
