Managing Inflammatory Pain
Inflammation can be system wide or local to one area of the body.
There are various types of inflammation and types of distress.
Here is a general outline to a patient's condition.
Features of inflammation can include soreness, stiffness, pain, and emotional duress. Environmental stress, emotional issues, food and carcinogens, allergies to animals or substances, all can create inflammation.
Food is the worst culprit in most instances because of the toxic reaction that the body experiences, especially with foods that we consume often. If you experience gastrointestinal discomfort, headaches, sinus problems, moodiness, and distension of the abdomen, I would review your food intake and make some of the ideas, below, a part of your new routine.
You should consider seeing a professional to diagnose your condition. If you have questions, I am happy to give you some guidance. 719-639-1110, Dr. Villarreal, 10a - 4p MST.
Here is a summary of foods to avoid:
• Wheat, oats, barley, rye, rice, amaranth grains
• Milk products; yogurt may be tolerated because the lactic acid in the yogurt denatures the proteins which may cause allergies; whey protein may be tolerated as it does not contain casein.
• Beans, lentils, yeasted foods, peanuts, citrus fruits, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, sunflower and corn oils
Supplements and the amounts specific to your condition:
Curcuminoids 500-1000 mg
Quercetin 300-900 mg
Fish Oil Concentrate 1000 mg 2-4 times a day (gelcaps)
Flaxseed Oil 1-3 servings daily
Vitamin e 400 IU
Vitamin c 1000 mg 1-3 times daily
Magnesium 400-800 mg
L Glutamine 1000 mg 1-5 times daily
Acidophilus 1-3 times daily
Give your condition a few weeks to exhibit change. In some instances, your vitamin and diet regimen need to be adjusted by your guiding practitioner.
