                                          "Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as "Obamacare," what is now called alternative medicine may become as accessible and as widely accepted as conventional medicine.
The controversial act specifically mentions complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and integrative health care in seven different sections throughout the law. This is thanks in part to the efforts of the Integrative Health care Policy Consortium (IHPC), a coalition of major organizations started at the request of legislators in Washington devoted to the promotion of CAM and integrative health care in the U.S.
There have been debates about the efficacy of some of these practices, which include acupuncture, and it has been a long road for proponents of these treatments to get them recognized in the ACA."

Looking at the benefits that I believe Natural Medicine can bring to the table, I think it is wise for Obama Care to be inclusive  of this type of Medical Practices . I think , I am sure the Modern Medicine we use today, was formulated after the Herbs and root's that the Chinese and Indians used years ago.

You know As I am Talking about it. I remember going over a fence backwards trying to get away from an attacking dog.    ( I carried Mail For About 9 years )  . I got away with out being bitten, But the trouble I had with my back was crazy. There wasn't OBAMA CARE then, thank God I had good insurance. Costly, but I was making great money. If a tooth ache, a foot ache are counted high on the pain chart. Surely the back ranks high. Thank God my Mother knew a few remedies , She was of  American Indian decent. Choctaw. 

There are many more than 25 natural ways to relieve back pain, however this will be a good starting point. The 25 natural ways to relieve back pain can be broken down in to several categories. The first is stretching then strengthening and then by drinking and eating. The third area when looking at the 25 natural ways to relieve back pain is to use good posture when sitting and standing. 

The first group of the 25 natural ways to relieve back pain will involve stretching. To do this you will need to hold each position for 5-8 seconds and do not bounce or make any swift movements. Do not move beyond the pain. If you feel pain, you need to stop.

Stretching Moves: 

1. Lie face down on an exercise ball and move your shoulders forward slightly. 
2. After sitting for some time, stand and place your hands upon your lower back, then push your shoulders back and hips forward. 
3. Lay on the ground facing up. Pull one knee up towards your chest and then pull your other leg up to your chest. 
4. While holding the above position, twist the bottom half of your torso to your left and point your knees to the 10 o'clock position, then point them to your right at the 2 o'clock position. Remember to hold each position for 5-8 seconds. 
5. While lying on the ground face up, bend your legs at the knees and place your feet flat on the ground. Slowly push up your hip area until you form a bridge. The second group of 25 natural ways to relieve back pain includes back strengthening. 
6. Do Hindu style squats. This will strengthen your lower back so that you are able to deal with every day rigor. 
7. Do sit ups. Sit ups strengthen your abs but also takes the pressure off of your back muscles.
8. The Superman position. Lay face down and lift your upper torso and legs so that your body forms a bowl and hold the position for a few seconds. 
9. The Reverse Fly. Lean over at about 90 degrees, use a 5- 10 pound weight in each hand, then raise both arms straight out. 
10. Opposite arm and leg raise.Get on all fours, extend one of your arms completely and then raise the opposite leg and then switch to the other arm and leg.

19. If you have to stand for a long period keep your chest elevated,shoulders pushed back and your body straight to the ground. 
20. If you have to sit at a desk for a long time, raise your computer monitor to a higher setting so you do not have to look down. Be sure to keep your head level. The fifth and final group of 25 natural ways to relieve back pain involves moving.
