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... In fact the doctors atJohns Hopkins have developed a "bone/joint diet? That they feel can help ease the burden of stiff, swollen joints. Diet to follow)
Although denied by the medical profession for the last three decades, diet will influence your pain... Prior to the refusal phase of medicine it was and in some circles still a known factor that certain foods as well as drinks trigger certain problems. For instance, Joint problems have been found to be exacerbated by the use of alcohol, liver and other organ meats. One of the most famous combined difficulty recognized is "Gout," despite the fact that the pharmaceutical companies have tried to convince the world this is not correct, it certainly is as well as 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 but the digestive system is suffering the affects as well as the liver and kidneys which have in order to filtration out the foreign matter in the body! As we get older our digestive system does not work as fast nor as detailed as it needs to and therefore medications can cause 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. Additionally, eating or drinking something tainted with Salmonella or other bacteria has been shown to provoke 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 ascertain which ones will help you and which ones can cause you 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 paperwork, "The more pressure and weight on your joints, the more they will hurt. Also and extra 10 pounds stresses the joints." Adesirable reason to lose weight of affected with joint/bone problems!
