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 relieve the burden of stiff, painful joints. Diet plan to follow)
Although denied by the medical profession for the last three decades, diet will influence your pain... Prior to the refusal period of remedies it was and in a few 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 shared issue recognized is "Gout," even though the pharmaceutical companies have tried to convince the world this is not correct, 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 though the digestive system is suffering the affects as well as the liver and kidneys which have to filter out the foreign matter in the body! As we get older our digestive tract 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 it can be culprits for joint problems. Furthermore, eating or drinking everything 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 should experiment with different foods to ascertain which ones will help you and those that can cause an individual pain. With over 100 different kinds of bone/joint problems classified under the proceeding 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. Even and extra 10 pounds stresses the joints." Adesirable reason to lose weight of affected together with joint/bone problems!
