Got Pain? Take Flax Oil.

Nearly every day, I notice many of our new patients have wrist, elbow, and/or hand pain from repetitive stress. Interesting causes of repetitive injuries from my experience happen to be excess sugar consumption and deficiencies in vitamin B6 and omega-3 flax oils. Many individuals’ diets are high in carbohydrates, refined grains, soda and specialty coffees with sweeteners. Food can either cause and/or take away pain.

Think about Rosie the Riveter, the famed laborer during World War II. You did not hear her complain about having wrist pain and repetitive stress injuries. Do you want to know why? Her diet was not an ‘inflammatory-friendly’ type diet with super concentrated amounts of sweets, soda, and trans fat. I have noticed women in their forties tend to have chronic shoulder pain-do you want to know why? They tend to be alkaline. You can check your pH to see if it’s purple in color. An alkaline pH usually means no cancer, but you may suffer with pain syndromes like fibromyalgia and bursitis in the shoulder area, which is one of the reasons we suggest one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar either straight up or on your salad.
