Eugene DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may influence 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 adversely, and prolongs
recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these issues when exchanged
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Eugene chiropractic patients
with chronic pain often discover some relief with better
A review of 172 studies advises
that effects of certain 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 three
times a day alongside fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine
are good daily. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and
cheese and red meats can be mixed in weekly. It’s
not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) That
makes it easier to manage
a diet change! Eating this way helps manage
inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A popular diet called the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for reducing
inflammation and fostering neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if initiated in a timely manner after the injury. (3)
