Healing Foods For Back Pain

The Back Pain industry is expanding. Just not in the best ways you would think. Back pain is placing a burden on the wallets of way too many people. Did you know that twice as more money was spent in 2007 than in 1997 for all back pain related “problem solvers”? That number was more than $30 billion! and up from inflation

that was at $16 billion the decade earlier.

It’s alarming that between the age of 15 and 52 more than 80{b2e0dba9c93837a4f3ce441fa43dc3a0e947a29fe0fd2c517ea2237d7754a6d7} with chronic lower back pain reported a vitamin D deficiency.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No sun? No problemo. I figured out without natural solutions what to use to start feeling better:

Through the passage of time, it has become easy to take for granted the use of our body mechanics. We eat, eat, and then eat some more until we’ve lost sight of what the meaning of nutrition means.

A calorie does not always mean a calorie, and more greens and reds on your plate necessarily mean you shouldn’t watch out. Drugs might seem a viable alternative, but I think simple stroll down your local supermarket sounds much better.

It is evident that there are certain foods you eat that contribute to increasing your inflammation, thus worsening the pain. Beginning or changing a diet will help you avoid it.

Throughout this article I want to show you what The foods you should be paying no mind to, and the healing foods For Back Pain, in particular the lower back. I’ll let you know what actions you can take to turn a less nutritious lifestyle into a nutritious one.

Fruits Are Not All What You Think

What If I told you that you to watch out for the fruits you eat? You would think I was crazy. Most fruits do not contain not even a 1/2 of the nutrition you think it does. This case will be proven here in a second, but let me first ask…

Are you drinking concentrates?

The soluble form of a fruit actually has flavor boosters! Although concentrates are packed with phenolic compounds, along with other antioxidants and minerals, they are packed with SUGARS and CALORIES. Yes, fruits do contains sugars, but how is that bad?

Simply, it is artificial flavors and has (what is a shame to be a part of the sugar family) sweeteners. Watch out for these sugars. My rule of thumb is that if the drink is too sweet it has sweeteners. Beverage companies like to make you think they are healthy for you with the way they brand. Such examples are those of:

  • beverage
  • flavored drink
  • Punch

Drinking high amounts of concentrates will lead to overproduction in calories, and calories will lead to…more weight!

If I can recall correctly, extra weight puts an amount of stress on your spine, and will increase your inflammation at a quicker rate. That’s hitting two birds with one stone!

I want to lay out an example:

Let’s take a cup of apple juice. We’ll examine it, and collect evidence. You have a frozen concentrate of this apply juice with NO added sugar, and it has been diluted with 3 times the amount of water. That will have about 25 grams of sugar. Now take an entire cup of apples(eaten with skin), and guess how many grams of sugar that give you? 13 grams!

Besides Apple Juice, I have two of the most tastiest beverages sitting in my pantry and Refrigerator.

They taste as good as they look, but the question is…are they good for you?

I’ve done a side by side compare and contrast between the two-  One is Tropicana “not from concentrate” Orange Juice, and the other is Cranberry “Cocktail” Juice

 

To conclude in the great words of doctors. and health advocates, avoid bad sugars.

Erase the word convenient from your head, because that’s all these fruit juices are. If the convenience of it didn’t begin to stop you, so won’t your habits. These drinks create an addiction in your brain. Flavor enhancers are supposed to do that to you. The Nutrients are what you want to fight off inflammation, not the calories.

The sugars like fructose corn syrup are especially worse for you. They are high in calories

Check out the complications of sugar in general can have:

A mix between sugar and artificial sweeteners

A popular sweetener. Read the label at the bottom before purchase. Don’t drink before bed with back pain either, cause lack of sleep

Age and weight is of relevance.

The older you get the more at risk you are to health problems. The last thing you want is to worry about fending off inflammation, while being at risk for type two diabetes, or cardiovascular problems. If you are a diabetic, please stay away from these concentrates. They put you at more harm.

these drinks contain some of the highest sugars

You’ve Finally Been Told Not To Eat All Your Veggies

You’ve probably never heard of a vegetable that can do you any harm, but like fruits, vegetables come in different forms that can affect you too.

Night Shade vegetables are locking up your lower back.

The following are of these classification:

  • Eggplants
  • Paprika
  • Pimentos
  • White Potatoes
  • Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Groun cherries
  • cape gooseberries

It’s hard to imagine that these rich antioxidants and delicious vegetables are actually worsening the pain for you. Consuming just one these have enough power to cause inflammation to increase. They cause one of the major problems, that inflammation gives you: Muscle pain and tightness. That’s only of a few.

I like to wake up nice and fresh in the mornings, don’t you? If you have these vegetables you could wake up the very next morning in stiffness. The effect they have on your day are just as tremendous. You can cause stiffness from sitting extended periods.

How is it possible…Nicotine

Believe this or not but the nightshade vegetables contain nicotine. If you know a thing about nicotine, it is highly addictive. The night crave came to be their name, hence nightshade.

It’s obvious, you need calcium. Just don’t eat these vegetables when you need inflammation to go down, because there is a thing called Calicinosis. It softens the tissues. It’s purpose is to consume the calcium from foods eaten. The problem is having an excess amount. Here are some symptoms you can get from Calicinosis:

  • Weakness
  • Insomnia
  • muscle pain
  • bone pain

and much more!

The most common factor we consume the most of and don’t pay enoug attention to is vegetable oil. Eat less of corn, safflower, cottonseed, and mixed vegetables. This is the fastest way to cause inflammation.

You’re Out Of Luck If It’s A Quick Meal

A Process of a meal is different from a processed meal…

One is a well taken care of, raised right, organically prepared vs one that is injected with all the hormones you got, saturated fats, and takes a fast food joint to eat from. You will just add fuel to the flame, the inflammation that is.

Not necessarily is fat bad. In fact, your body needs Omega-3 fatty acids to build protein and boost your metabolism. Saturated and trans fats will only increase your weight, and can cause obesity. For all my chronic lower back patients, this is the sentencing of all sentences.

There’s a domino effect to see here. As someone with chronic back pain the slippery slope can become even slipperier to hold onto. So much so that it turns into a game of minds.

Your psychologically can knock you down. The pain persist for so much that you can’t get up to exercise, in result this can lead to depression, and depression leads to hunger.

Saturated and trans fats are the perfect solution. You turn to these because they are cheap and of easy access.

Processed meals that are bad for you:

  • Anything thrown into a frier
  • Bread
  • Pies
  • meat products. Bacon, sausage, ham, salami
  • Microwave meals
  • ready meals

Basically, if you can freeze it, can it, bake it, or dry it, it is processed.

In this day in age it is tough to see what is happening with factory raised animals, They are fed inappropriate foods, like refined grains, given antibiotics, and are brought up in unsanitary conditions. If you eat these, which you likely do, it is usually in high Omega-6 fats.

Your body needs both the omega- omega 6 fats, but too much of one is not good. You are looking at a serious inflammation.

Forget About Taste Buds, Focus On Nutrients

cut down on omega 6 and take more omega 3

Want to know how I get my omega-3 on a quick day? Try this out:

Nature Made Fish Oil is a great Omega 3 formula. This was how I began with after I had my very first back pain inflammation. You can use these for every day use, for daily intake if you wish.

They are great for getting your body back to performing at its best.

I don’t use these tablets as often anymore because I like to use more of foods and less of pills.

I want you to know that there are better alternatives to take than it is counterpart. Food that is rich in nutrients are going to give you the best lower back relief and will cease the pain. This is why creating an anti-inflammatory with not only the right foods, but good nutrients will help you maintain back pain.

The light side or dark side?…

Eat deep(dark) colored fruits. They are good for lower back pain management. Start with cherries. Fresh or tarned cherries will reduce muscle pain and strain. I used to do drink tart cherry.every day twice a day, about 8 ounces, for a good week. This reduced the pain I had significantly. I felt NONE at the end of it!

 

The Fruits that come out of a can are good for you as long as they are not packed with high amount of heavy syrup or salt. The thing I like to emphasize is that since we all need sugar to survive, it is better to have a little higher count in grams consumed than it is to have more sugar out of a less nutritious fruit. Nutrition compensates for those 13 to 15 grams.

I opt out most fruit juices for a V8. The cans with the high amount of sodium remember those? Although high in sodium they are the best alternative.

Heres something I recently started buying:

The one thing you didn’t know was hydration. Drinking plenty of liquids helps the spine. The spinal discs are made up of water, mostly. By staying hydrated it keeps the spinal discs flexibility, and improves flexibility.

Check out the following video on water dehydration. You will not want to miss this.

 

Stick to the calcium. It’s the best known nutrient for bone health.

Eat Your veggies, fight back the pain. Stick to the Omega-3 rich nutrients. You should generally be eating these foods:

  • salmon
  • sardine
  • herring
  • tuna
  • black cod
  • trout
  • omeha 3-supplement

 

The more plant based you get the better off you will be…

Chia seeds, and flax are a plant based diet. Eating these will expedite the largest return of investment. Even better yet, mix these with the omega-3 rich nutrients and you can get a better result out of it.

What’s more nutritious than Omega-3’s? Carrots, sweet potatoes, grapes, red wine, and watermelon. These can reduce inflammation of cartilage in your spinal; column, in which control back pain and stiffness.

Sciatica patients: Avoid refined grains. These strip the vitamin B nutrients away from your body. Choose whole grains instead.

Whole grains include:

  • Whole weats
  • Whole oats
  • Whole Rye
  • Wholegrain barley

Sciatica nerves will tend to reduce significantly when you consume these just about every day in moderation.

Watch this short 2 minute video on the proper way to eat for a sciatic nerve:

 

What’s the solution to eating fats? Eat smarter than the farmer. You should choose humanely fed and raised animals. That constitutes to:

  • Grass-fed beef
  • Pastured poultry
  • Pork
  • Wild caught fish

I can’t forget about alcohol. You shouldn’t be drinking until you drop. The very next morning feeling, you guessed it, is inflammation. Opt out alcohol and drink hot tea before bed.

 

Time to Filter In The right, Funnel Out The Wrong

The longer you wait to take the necessary steps to help fight back pain inflammation, the faster the inflamed area will grow on you. The process is much simpler than we make it seem much of the time. Try to incorporate an exercise or two a day for maximum results. It shows that if you can stay active it will lead to a healthier food awareness.

Keep the right fruits, vegetables, and meats close by your side, and implement one at a time, each day. Then make your way up to 2 categories the next time, then three. Before you know it, it will become natural!
