Hi Sister. I am starting to have some back pain myself from some hard milage. From what I have learned, if the spice is nerve damage the fatty protective outside layer is worn down by inflammation and poor conductivity. Basically cut back on sugar and drink more pure soft water. You should also carefully add fresher squeezed lemon juice to water and drink 4-6 Oz once or twice a day. Preferably 1/2 hour before meals or 1 hr after meals. Lemon juice will give your liver a much greater ability to replace cells that are damaged or wore out. Our Father YAHUAH makes all things new instead of repairing the old. Cartilage is a hard one to bring back once it's gone. I will pray for you and you may want to seek out 2 or more elders who you know are honest and in the faith to lay hands on you. Believe. As a side note, you may be eating something that is making things much worse than you might think. Think of it like an alergy you don't know of. Maybe start to keep your meals to 2 or 3 ingredients max and keep some notes of health changes, of any kind. Think of it like a experiment.
Father, you are holy and all powerful, we believe and trust you. Please touch Sister Lori that she may be in health and prosper even as her soul prospers. In Yahushua's mighty name.
