Baton Rouge DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may play a role in obesity and chronic
pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body as
well. Poor diet often adds to obesity, affects
the immune system adversely, and prolongs
recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in
nature instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist
these issues when substituted
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients
with chronic pain frequently discover some relief with healthier
A review of 172 studies suggests
that effects of specific foods are comparable
to drug management therapy for chronic pain. Natural compounds like the
phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil are examples.
Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices eaten 3
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 is
not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) That
makes it simpler to manage
a diet change! Eating this way helps manage
inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A well-known diet called the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for decreasing
inflammation and advancing neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if started early after the injury. (3)
Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant
