Does Food Effect Your Pain?
According to researchers at Johns Hopkins, "There's no denying that there is a strong connection between what you eat and how you feel, and the difference is likely to become more and more apparent the older you get." (Johns Hopkins Health 2000,www.intelihealth.org)
Stunning breakthroughs in medical research demonstrate that you can literally feed your aching bones and joints exactly what they need to move more freely and with less discomfort. Taking certain nutrition to eliminate distress, rebuilding deteriorating join structures, and restore freedom of movement is rapidly moving into mainstream medical consciousness. Long overdue but still not fast enough... Actually the doctors atJohns Hopkins have developed a "bone/joint diet? That they feel can help ease the burden of stiff, painful joints. Diet to follow)
Although denied by the medical profession for the last three decades, diet can influence your pain... Prior to the refusal stage of remedies it was and in a few circles still a known factor that certain foods and also drinks trigger certain problems. For instance, Joint problems have been found to be exacerbated by the use of alcohol, liver and other organ meats. Probably the most famous combined issue recognized is "Gout," although the pharmaceutical companies have tried to convince the world this is not accurate, it certainly is and gout suffers who have had direct results of those foods will tell you...
Chemicals concocted by the pharmaceutical industry can help with a few cases however the digestive system is suffering the affects as well as the liver and kidneys which have to be able to filtration out the foreign matter in the body! As we get older our digestive system does not work as quicly nor as thorough as it needs to and therefore medications can make as many or more problems than they help!
Doctors also targeted allergies or intolerance for dairy products, preservatives found in a wide variety of foods and drugs along with members of the nightshade family as possible culprits for joint problems. Furthermore, eating or drinking something tainted with Salmonella or other bacteria has been shown to trigger the immune system to attack the joints, a condition known as "Reiter's syndrome."
The Johns Hopkins researchers say that you ought to experiment with different foods to determine those that will help you and which ones will cause a person pain. With over 100 different kinds of bone/joint problems classified under the planning of "arthritis"it is easy to understand why experimenting with different foods must be left up to you. Also as explained by the Johns Hopkins papers, "The more pressure and weight on your joints, the more they are going to hurt. Also and extra 10 pounds stresses the joints." Adesirable reason to lose weight of plagued together with joint/bone problems!
