Back pain; Will diet make a difference?

September 5, 2011 Back Pain

Back pain will diet make a difference?  On average we get to eat three times a day, every day, this gives us the opportunity to protect our bodies from the effects of the environment.

The power of nutrition and the effects that out diets have on our health are no longer in dispute. Some foods protect us by boosting immunity; others sweep out the digestive tract and keep it in good working order.  A good diet has been shown to help reduce the risk of cancer, protect us from heart attack, maintain brainpower by deterring stroke and memory loss, strengthen our bones and guard vision.

Age Protectors “Your guide to eternal youth” recommends ten super foods to…. Save your Bones. This works on the theory that although your skeleton is a solid structure, the whole framework is alive, and every bone is constantly changing in a process called remodelling.

According to Patty Packard, R. D., a research dietician at Creighton University and a consultant at Creighton Osteoporosis Research Centre, in Omaha Nebraska.  “Remodelling requires the bones to be fed well every day of your life, neglect the feeding of your bones at your own peril: when they finally complain it could be with a loud crack”

Top 10 super foods include,

  1. Milk (1Cup)
  2. Pink salmon, with bones, canned
  3. Spinach, cooked
  4. Tofu, firm
  5. Kidney beans cooked
  6. Yogurt, non-fat, plain (1cup)
  7. Orange juice, calcium-fortified
  8. Black-eyed peas, cooked
  9. Catfish, cooked
  10. Tuna canned in water.

Protect your bones with super foods; help prevent aches and pains, a good diet will also improve your overall sense of well-being.

Always consult your GP at the onset of back pain.
