Did You Know That There Are Pain Killers In Your Kitchen?

"What we eat has a dramatic impact on levels of pain in the body," says
Beth Reardon,M.S.,R.D., a nuttritionist at Duke Integrative Medicine at
Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina.

Seven super foods that fight Arthritis, Backaches, and more.

Red Grapes...
Contain resveratrol, a powerful compound that blocks
the enzymes that contribute to tissue degeneration.

Is a digestive aid but also an effective painkiller as it
blocks an enzyme that's a key compnent of the
inflammatory process.

It's isoflavones, which are plant hormones, reduce knee
pain caused by Osteoarthritis by 30%.

High amounts of antioxidants called anthocyanins are
the key to this pain killer.

It also seems to inhibit the destruction of joints from

Moderate doses (2 cups) reduces post-workout pain
by almost 50% according to recent Researchers of
the University of Georgia.

Now we all know that the Omega-3 fatty acids help
keep our heart & eyes in shape but they may also
reduce the pain of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Migraines,
and certain Autoimmune Diseases. Omega-3 can be
substituted for anti-inflamatory drugs with no side
effects..found by Joesph C. Maroon,M.D., a
clinical Professor in the Depatment of Neurological
Sugery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

I have always believed that what you eat has a great
effect on your health and well-being.

    Nice to see something of value in a post, lately I was wondering if I was having a 10 yr old sleepover, with the questions posted.
    Soy needs to be fermented and organic, or it can do more harm in the disruption of the endocrine system.
    Turmeric is wonderful and also a leading cancer reducing agent along with diabeties. Which anti inflam is key.
    My family has used more natural means after failing from the Pharma side was evident from my beginning of nurse training.

    Thanks for the info... Moreover, tumeric spice helps cleanse the liver, purify the blood, and promotes good digestion and elimination. It also possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

    I use ginger on oatmeal, pineapple, & carrots. If bananas are too ripe don't throw them out. Peel them, lay them on reynold's wrap, sprinkle them with ginger powder or cinnamon. Wrap them in the foil the put them in the freezer. Frozen bananas are a great treat on a hot day or for dessert in the winter.

    Little Angel
    LOL It can help of course but like medications is addictive.
  • D.G.rocks Little ... 2011/08/19 21:24:10
    Actually neither booze or meds ARE addictive,but they CAN be.

    Vicodin is addictive! Also can cause all kinds of health problems.
  • tooner259 Little ... 2011/06/13 15:49:56
    It`s not addictive if you use it every day.

    I agree Little Angel, and also the quality of the food we eat has a direct impact on the quality of our thoughts

    I know...I was able to get off of 2 prescription drugs by eating the right foods
    and doing a few minutes every day of easy exercises.

    Gut flora has shown to be a very strong link to depression and other mental issues, you were more accurate then you know.
  • ImSoMad 2011/05/21 17:11:25
    Thanks for the info!!! :)
  • TonyDahlinVenice 2011/05/21 17:10:37
    Yes, the fruit of the "Miracle Mellon" as advertised on late-night TV. I believe "health food" is propaganda, by unscrupulous marketers
  • Little ... TonyDah... 2011/06/13 00:27:02

    No one food is a miracle food....but the right foods can keep you healthy.
  • Little Angel 2011/05/21 16:52:13

    I seem to have learned from this:

    I can enjoy my 2 cups of coffee with my healthy cereal for Breakfast.
    Still enjoy my Thai spiced tea (with honey & cinnamon added) with
    my yogurt for Lunch as always. Maybe have Soy in my Chinese Soup.
    Have a healthy snack that includes cherries instead of bananas.
    (Maybe cherry ice cream).
    For Dinner have a salad with fish (maybe turmeric on it) with a glass
    of red wine (red grapes).

    That should make me healthy & pain free!
    Seriously, I do get most of these in my diet
    every day because I can not take pain killers
    except in extreme cases & only 2 or 3 doses.
