Acute, Chronic Back Pain and Nutritional Relief

Share
Nutritional relief for acute and chronic back pain can be achieved by eating specific fruits and vegetables. Individuals dealing with acute and chronic back pain have recently been asking if their diets can be modified to reduce back pain. Absolutely, eating healthier will lead to weight loss and will help reduce back pain symptoms. The big surprise was a nutritionist that did not know about this recommendation to help ease back pain symptoms. Life seems to throw a lot of curveballs especially in the midst of pain. Stress eating and just eating great tasting food is one method/technique of dealing with the pain, as it makes you feel good and forget the pain for a little while.
However, the problem is still present and becomes worse with the added weight. Not to mention the consequences of eating too much unhealthy food, like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. Eating junk food and suffering in silence can become a way of life.

Pain Relief With Healthy Food

Most individuals will experience back pain at some point. There are a variety of causes from disease to injury and just normal wear and tear. Fortunately, for most, it will be short-lived. But for some chronic pain can develop, creating a new set of health issues and makes achieving back pain relief more complicated. It may sound too easy but making adjustments to your diet can make all the difference in dealing with and eliminating back pain.

Manage and eradicate back pain

Constantly going for the wrong foods, speeds up the inflammation process. Various studies show certain foods contain components that have anti-inflammatory properties. Experts agree that choosing healthy foods for and/or chronic illnesses reduces flare-ups, inflammation and helps heal the body back to top form. The pain reduces because the inflammation triggers are kept in check. This means the grocery store and healthy foods can be a powerful tool for fighting inflammation. Our ancestors lived off the land eating organic natural foods and healed themselves without refined products.

Multi-colored vegetables and fruits

Dark green vegetables supply powerful nutrients that fight inflammation. Added benefits are they help remove cancer-causing free radicals. Examples include:
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Collard greens
Orange and yellow vegetables like:
  • Carrots
  • Squash
  • Pumpkin
  • Peppers
  • Pineapple
Carrots contain vitamin E and C and antioxidants that protect the healthy tissue around the inflamed area. Pineapple contains natural enzymes that help break down fibrin that forms around any acute injury. As the barrier is broken down nutrients are allowed to penetrate the area and ease the inflammation.

Nutritional Relief

The ability to heal the body with proper food choices should be a no brainer. But because humans are creatures of habit, breaking away from what is normal for the individual can be a challenge. Some simple ways to start eating toward healing:
  • Reduce the fat intake like butter, corn, red meat, and simple carbohydrates that are high in sugar and low in fiber.
  • When eating fill up with vegetables, fruits, and herbs and reduce the meat intake. Eat two to three servings of fruits and vegetables at all meals.
  • Choose varieties of fruits and vegetables:
  1. Strawberries
  2. Blueberries
  3. Cherries
  4. Pineapple
  5. Oranges
  6. Kale
  7. Broccoli
  8. Spinach
  9. Collards
  10. Carrots
  11. Pumpkin
There are plenty of choices that can aid in healing the body from the inside out. Take nutritional relief steps now and start on the road to recovery.
