Soft Health and Healing Clinic Encourages Healthy Diet to Avoid Pain and Inflammation

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 eating selections.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS

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 eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets help patients heal from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
