Chronic Pain Facts

*Chronic pain affects more than 20% of Australians. 

This means that for every 100 facebook friends you have, at least 20 of them are living with disabling, daily pain affecting every aspect of their lives including their ability to work, sleep, care for themselves & engage socially. Chronic pain is a very isolating, extremely depressing & expensive illness which may be effectively managed through dietary & lifestyle changes. Changes that I had reluctantly made some years ago, which ultimately changed my life.

With dietary & lifestyle adjustment you can successfully reduce inflammation within the body which is proven to not only manage mood disorders but a host of other chronic & acute conditions affecting the vast majority of the population.

If we can accept that age old inflammatory conditions such as gout can be successfully managed through the reduction of inflammatory foods, & we are of the understanding that pain conditions AND mood disorders such as depression & anxiety are marked by increased inflammation within the body (and brain), then there is no disputing the evidence to support that following an anti-inflammatory diet can help to reduce pain flares associated with chronic pain syndromes AS WELL AS to reduce depressive episodes. 

Many other modern illnesses with evidence of  increased inflammatory signaling include cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and dementia.

Does this mean that these conditions may be prevented as well? 

Perhaps, we cannot say for sure but research has proven time again that following an anti-inflammatory diet & maintaining a healthy weight can reverse or reduce the incidence of disease in any age group.

If we look at cause & effect, then let's take the 'cause' out of the equation as the first step towards recovery.

 And what is the cause here? 

  Inflammation due to a diet HIGH IN INFLAMMATORY FOODS.

Using a simple & traditional philosophy tailored to your needs because every person is different, but the ultimate goal is to restore health & bring you back to a more acceptable level of functioning. To have your life back again is absolutely possible. 

I know this, because I have been there on my journey.

                    

The food you eat can either be the safest & most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.
