"You are what you eat"this common phrase has burdened the rear recesses of our mind for over 2 centuries.  The food we eat can have a grand bearing on our physical & mental state. But what if we used this to our advantage?  Our ancient ancestors did not benefit from the advances of modern science & technology like we do now, but they may have known a thing or two about which foods, herbs & spices can help us feel better - some of this "ancient wisdom" is now being proven in scientific circles to have validity. 

 

So, I present, in no particular order, natural ways to "EAT YOUR PAIN AWAY"

 

The PAIN - Back Pain, Neck Pain, Other Joint Pain

 

EAT = Salmon, Herring, Sardines

 

These oily fish contain high amounts of naturally occurring omega 3 fatty acids which can help by improving circulation and reducing inflammation.  While eating animal sources it a great avenue, supplementing with a high quality Omega 3 supplement is usually advisable

 

The PAIN - Back Pain & General Joint Pain (Arthritis) & Digestive 

 

EAT = Tumeric

 

 

This common curry spice has been used in Indian cooking for centuries & is what gives the food its yellow colour.  The spice contains curcumin, which has been studied extensively recently for its natural anti-inflammatory properties and may help relieve back pain, neck pain and certain types of arthritis.  If you are not a fan of curries, tumeric is readily available to be supplemented in capsule form.

 

The PAIN - Migraines, Back Pain, Arthritis, Nausea

 

EAT = Ginger

 

Ginger is a readily available root used commonly to flavour stir-fry's and other Asian based dishes as well as Gingerbread Men/Women!  While often it is recommended to help ease nausea, recent studies suggest it has anti-inflammatory helpful for joint pains as well as headaches and migraines.

 

The PAIN - Muscle Aches, Headaches, Depression

 

Eat = Magnesium

 

The research into the health benefits of magnesium continue however it seems that having adequate levels of magnesium in your system can benefit everything from heart health, osteoporosis, blood pressure and even constipation. In fact it almost seems that there's nothing magnesium isn't good for. Foods rich in magnesium are nuts, wholegrains, dark green vegetables, fish and meat. Rich sources include pumpkin and sunflower seeds, bran, tofu, potatoes, spinach and baked beans.
