Wow, Foods and supplements do matter
Saturday, May 18, 2019
I stay in pain. I have a fussed lower back after 2 surgeries. But I avoid hard pain killers been off hydros for 5 years now. I take ibuprofen, flexeril, and Tylenol on a rotating basis but have found the ibuprofen increases swelling after a few days...my liver can no longer handle it. My go to was steroids from my doctor, always made me feel so much better but the weight gain was depressing.
Well, I've pulled almost all foods known to trigger inflammation from my diet. Added flax, chia, and hemp seeds to my salads. And I take berberine, milk thistle, hawthorne, gymnema, fish oil, ginger, and garlic doses everyday.What a difference it makes.
I missed things for one week trying to move my mom. I allowed the pizza, pop, chips, and no supplements. Forgot my salad, didn't have time for the prep work. At least that is what I toldmtself. Enjoyed those old family favorites and sugar in coffee. What a week of splurging. What a pain!
By the end of the week...pain. Well I guess it is a good reminder of why I started this life style change. The good news is once I started the supplements and salads back my pain decreased rather quickly, thank the Lord.
So it may be time involved or cost for supplements but the relief in body has been well worth it!
