As we get older, our appetites tend to decrease. A diet based on low fat and high quality foods can help to reverse the effects of aging and to reduce high blood pressure.

It suddenly dawned on me that I just took the most adventurous trip of my life. I zip lined through the jungles of Costa Rica sliding on cables through treetops over 1,400 ft long and over 400 feet in the air, and repelled down 165 foot waterfalls without giving into fear.

If none of these options work, then you should consider seeing your primary care physician. He or she can prescribe drugs that can help numb the pain. There is also the option of surgery if a more serious problem exists. This should only be used in extreme measures. Often surgery is unavoidable but consider carefully because it can have long term effects on the body. Be sure to inform your doctor of all steps you may have taken to relieve your back pain so that he can make an accurate diagnosis.
