Ease your pain with food

Grandma’s secret recipe for helping with her pain levels might have more truth than you think…

Foods rich in omega-3, soybeans, cherries and tumeric all have healing properties that can reduce pain and inflamation

Since time began, there have always been people swearing by particular foods curing them of their ailments and disease. While there is little evidence to suggest you can find miracle cures in the bottom of your grocery bag, there is growing proof that particular food can help with pain caused by inflammation and arthritis.

Omega-3

Omega-3 helps to reduce your cholesterol and lower your risk of heart disease, but did you know it can also help reduce inflammation? As detailed in numerous studies, by including up to three grams of fatty fish such as herring or salmon in your diet, you can lessen the pain of rheumatoid arthritis. As a result, you may even be able to reduce the number of inflammatory drugs you take.

Soybeans

If you suffer from inflammation, then you may want to take a closer look at soybeans. As they contain isoflavones, they can help to slow down oxidation and inflammation.

Tart Cherries

If you’re reaching for aspirin or other NSAIDs for pain relief, why not consume tart cherries? Tart cherries feature an inflammation- reducing compound known as cyanidin.

Turmeric

For thousands of years, people have used spices for health reasons. Only now, however, are scientists proving that spices have health benefits. Turmeric is one of them and features curcumin which helps to fight inflammation and prevent illness.

While some foods can help to manage your pain level, it should be known that a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables, as well as regular exercise, can go a long way to keeping your mind and body at its best. If you suffer from inflammation or other aches and pains, consult your chiropractor for advice.
