Joint pain and even osteoporosis has become a major disease around the world. It is a disease where bone density is reduced, making the bones porous and brittle with chronic pain and disability. Joints form the connections between your bones, and damage the joints can be debilitating in that it can interfere with the way you move. Joint pain can affect any part of your body and as we age, painful joints become even more common. Whatever the cause of your joint pain, you can manage it by making dietary changes, including exercise, having medical therapy and even with medication.
The Wrong Diet
Chronic inflammation, caused largely by the wrong diet, brings with a host of health complications, of which joint pain is just one. Health experts tell us how important it is to detox the body – to clean it – and it is then important to stop foods which increase your toxic load such as dairy as well as refined foods. Doing this at least once a year can make a huge different to your energy levels as well as your aches and pains.
Many People have Dairy Issues
Studies show that those who eat less dairy and who eat a higher plant-based diet enjoy better health and wellness and a reduction in diseases such as osteoporosis and joint pain. The fact is some 75% of people around the world are unable to properly digest milk and other dairy products. This is known as lactose intolerance. It gives you an idea of how dairy is a bad idea for you. Research shows that countries with the lowest rates of dairy and calcium consumption such as those in India and Africa have the lowest rates of joint pain and osteoporosis.
Plants offer us vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Dairy on the other hand has been shown to cause joint pain, headaches and even cancer and allergies. Milk is acidic so it promotes excess mucus and it is quite often filled with excess hormones as well.
While everyone will experience different benefits from giving up dairy, one of the biggest advantages will be less inflammation and joint pain as well as better digestion. Some people wonder how they can ever go off diary but when your joints are pain free you’ll wish you had done it earlier.
Supercharge the Immune System
Medical experts who have studied the result of dairy on the human body, tell us that we should try to eliminate milk, cheese and ice cream for instance for a week or two and see how much better we will feel. They say we will eliminate our post nasal drips and sinus problems as well as our headaches and joint pain. They say we will be adequately protected from disease by opting for organic fruits and vegetables, and that simple techniques to change your diet will supercharge the immune system to resist debilitating ailments such as joint pain.
