Diet and Nutrition in Pain Management
A high carbohydrate and low fat diet was considered healthy at one time. But it has been determined by Dr. Atkins and others that high carbohydrate diet is harmful.
The controversy continues, but it appears best to eat a low carbohydrate diet rich in fruits and vegetables and high in Omega 3 fatty acids as found in fish and grass-fed-meats. Omega 3 fatty acids help to decrease inflammation in the body. It appears that when the body is inflammed, increased pain can develop.
The current recommendations is to eat a variety of foods to get energy, protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber for good health.
There are numerous Metagenics supplements that specifically can support those individuals suffering with pain. For example, Traumatic Injury Remedy is a homeopathic preparation that helps those individuals who have recently suffered from trauma. Along with a healthy diet, these Metagenics products may help.
