Relief from indigestion, diabetes, headaches and even arthritis may be in your kitchen instead of your medicine cabinet.

Dietitians and doctors are making the connection between food and pain, and say that changing your diet can change the way you feel.

Pain and inflammation are the body’s reaction to injury, but foods can reduce them.

Eating To Fight Pain
Shelly Asplin, a registered dietitian at Omaha grocery story Hy-Vee, said Omega-3 fatty acids go a long way toward fighting pain and inflammation. Asplin said she recommends foods that are high in Omega 3s to arthritis and fibromyalgia sufferers.

“A handful (of walnuts) a day gives you a recommended serving of Omega 3. Fresh, wild seafood from very cold water contains the highest sources of Omega 3 fats,” Asplin said. “Flax has to be ground — the complete seed only delivers fiber, but ground varieties have fiber and Omega 3s.”
Food Can Help Fight Pain

Wendy Vineyard comments…
Food is medicine that Nature/the Universe/God has provided to help us heal, from pain, medical conditions and ease our way through natural life transitions including menopause.

Healing foods that reduce inflammation and pain include ground flax seeds, ginger, garlic, cinnamon, turmeric, curry, basil, apricots, blueberries, cherries, strawberries, sweet potatoes and green peppers. All are phytoestrogenic foods and herbs. menopause, foods that heal, healing foodsIf you eat more of those anti-inflammatory, pain relieving foods, you’ll be helping many of your menopause troubles and enjoy a whole lot of other health benefits too.

Interesting that food has so much power to heal, yet the FDA in the US and Health Canada do not allow food and supplement companies to make health claims, except those that are proven in scientific studies. They do allow pharmaceutical companies to claim their drugs, with all kinds of side-effects, cure diseases. Hmmm.
