Did you know food can improve your chronic pain and inflammation?
Chronic pain and inflammation can make you feel hopeless.
They interfere with your mobility, sleep, and mood. The constant pain creates stress and anxiety.
Food plays a huge part in how our body fights chronic pain and inflammation.
Your Body is Like a Car
Your car runs well when you put the right fuel into it, but if you put the wrong fuel in your car, get ready to hand over a wad of cash to a tow truck and a mechanic.
Something similar happens to you when you put the wrong foods into your body. Much like your car running rough or even shutting down entirely with the wrong fuel, your body can do the same thing if you consume the wrong types of food.
Consuming inflammatory foods like sugar, soy, MSG, or processed foods can create severe and even chronic issues like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, mental fog or fatigue, and even cancer.
Understanding Pain, Inflammation, and Your Diet
Although chronic pain is often caused by inflammation, some inflammation can actually be a good sign. Inflammation is a byproduct of your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
When you are injured or have an infection, your body’s immune system sends white blood cells to the affected areas to either repair the injury or fight the infection. The result is inflammation, which usually subsides once the issue has passed. However, when your immune system is not functioning properly, inflammation remains.
Dr. Fred Tabung, a researcher with the Department of Nutrition at Harvard, says, “…a poor diet can alter your immune system, so it acts abnormally and can contribute to persistent low-grade inflammation.”
Your Food Intake has a Dramatic Effect on Your Entire Immune System
When your immune system is compromised by the foods that alter your immune system, your body can’t self-regulate, and you end up with a myriad of health problems ranging from minor aches and pains to chronic ailments and incurable diseases.
We know that certain foods create inflammation, and that inflammatory response can differ between you and me. Choosing the right foods for you and your body is imperative.
Some foods even have anti-inflammatory effects. For instance, berries, whole fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and nuts can help with inflammation.
