*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. READ MORE ABOUT DEE'S STORY HERE
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 if we look at cause & effect, then let's take the 'cause' out of the equation & see what happens.
And what is the cause here? Inflammation.
