Backache is a common problem among people nowadays. What people, however, forget is that life is not a race and you’ve got to do things at your own pace. Pay attention to the issues instead of ignoring them and letting things be. That’s what actress and influencer Sameera Reddy did for her back pain post pregnancy. Here she is reminding you to be more mindful of what your body needs.
Sameera, who has a daughter, is active on social media and where she talks about various mental and physical issues that women battle through everyday life.
One of her latest posts saw her sharing her ordeal with back pain, which she had since the days when she used to face the cameras actively.
“I’ve had a bad back since my shooting days and post childbirth, it has acted up at intervals. Last 2 months my back totally went for a toss. I was so frustrated because I want to be this super mom with my fitness Fridays and also keep up with so many things in my day. But I’ve had a history of back issues and post childbirth it’s gotten weaker,” she wrote.
That sounds like every other mother, who keeps her own health and concerns on the backburner to be a problem solver for everyone else around her.
But like a rightfully aware and health-conscious woman, Sameera decided to take matters in her own hand. She sought the right nutritional and physical treatment to reduce her agony.
“I was pushing too hard on all other fronts losing sight of the fact that I needed to be more regular with back exercises and taking vitamins,” she adds.
Here’s what all she did to solve her backache problem and ended up seeing an amazing difference.
* Consumed one multi vitamin, one omega fish oil and one calcium everyday
* A course of vitamin D3 for a month
* Since her iron levels were also low, she introduced iron- rich vegetables in her diet. The tablets didn’t suit her.
* She took physiotherapy
* Indulged in back exercises
* She undertook yoga classes
It took her consistent practice of the above measures for two months to finally feel better. “My hormones are also more balanced,” adds the 43-year-old.
After her experience of taking care of the back pain post pregnancy, there’s a reminder she wants to share with fellow moms and women.
“Take a look at what you need for your body and strength mental and physical. There is a lot of pressure of everyday life and body expectations, and keeping up can be hard. The best investment is investing in yourself, so tune into your needs and listen.”
