The S.A.D. is sad on so many levels.
Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be fixed
by concentrating on and exchanging from a
S.A.D. diet to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may benefit as
well from an anti-inflammatory diet, so
Soft Health and Healing Clinic urges an anti-inflammatory diet for
pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache and are inflamed which causes Brooks back pain and neck pain,
etc. Soft Health and Healing Clinic manages and relieves back pain
and neck pain with a complete chiropractic
treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional
diet. Brooks chiropractic patients team up with
Soft Health and Healing Clinic for the relief of Brooks chronic pain, back pain,
and neck pain.
Brooks DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may play a role in obesity and chronic
pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too. Poor diet many times adds to obesity, affects
the immune system unfavorably, and prolongs
recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in
nature rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these concerns when exchanged
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Brooks chiropractic patients
with chronic pain often find some relief with better
A review of 172 papers advises
that consequences of specific foods are comparable
to drug management therapy for chronic pain. Natural compounds like the
phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil are such.
Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices eaten 3
times a day alongside fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine
are good on a daily basis. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and
cheese and red meats can be interspersed weekly. It is
not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) That
makes it easier to manage
a diet change! Eating this way facilitates
inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A popular diet called the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for decreasing
inflammation and advancing neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if initiated early after the injury. (3)
Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is important
in the care of chronic pain and Brooks back pain at
Soft Health and Healing Clinic. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is excited to disclose
that anti-inflammatory diets help
patients heal from disc herniations and other
spine related injuries.
