Jacqueline Goguen (AbleIAm.com)'s curator insight, May 26, 2013 12:49 AM

We hear it all the time, but it can't hurt to revisit it again because I know this is one area I need to begin paying closer attention. It doesn't seem that long ago when I was juicing or blending at least once per day and found it fairly easy to stay on track with my dietary requirements. I also really enjoyed it. I haven't been finding this so easy to maintain anymore...for various reasons. The biggest probably being lack of energy and just sheer poor planning on my part. I found it much easier to eat for health when I was healthy - ironically enough because it's that much more important now.

 

I have no doubt that there is a close connection between the food we consume and how we feel. And that this is even more true for those of us that live with chronic pain. There has been a lot of research to show the inflammatory properties of certain foods and the healing qualities of others.

 

We can't go wrong with eating lots of colourful fresh fruits and vegetables and fiber in our diet. Are there any foods in particular you have found that help reduce your pain, or foods that you avoid because you find they aggrevate your pain? Please share them with us below. 

 

Blessings,

Jacqui

NerdWallet sifted through the fifty largest metro areas to find the ones with the best indicators of health, including health scores for the residents, health insurance coverage and a high prevalence of doctors and clean air.  NerdWallet assessed the health score according to the following factors:

How fit are the residents?  We assessed fitness of residents through the American Fitness Index, a composite index that includes the CDC’s Selected Metropolitan/Micropolitan Area Risk Trends Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, environmental factors from the Trust for Public Lands, rates of disease and other government data.Is healthcare accessible?  We incorporated the percentage of residents who have health insurance as well as the number of physicians per 100,000 residents.Is the air quality good?  Research shows that cleaner air adds an average of 4 months to a resident’s life expectancy.  We included the number of high particle pollution days per year for each metro area.

They're not saying this is a miracle cure--that you can just add parsley to your diet without doing anything else. This is only one piece of a bigger puzzle about how the body can work. . . clearly some people eat parsley and celery and still have to battle cancer, so what else is interfering in the natural process? I'm not sure that a genetically modified food is going to prove the miracle drug, but that's what they want to look into next . . .

Our Intestinal Biota Never Recover from Antibiotics: Damage to Future Generations

Our Intestinal Biota Never Recover from Antibiotics: Damage to Future Generations | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it
Aantibiotics destroy the gut biome with devastating effects on our ability to deal with infections and destroying our ability to absorb nutrients from food.

 

Speaking to ABC News, Blaser said:

 

"Antibiotics are miraculous. They’ve changed health and medicine over the last 70 years. But when doctors prescribe antibiotics, it is based on the belief that there are no long-term effects. We’ve seen evidence that suggests antibiotics may permanently change the beneficial bacteria that we’re carrying."

 

Notice that term, permanent. Without factoring in the potential risks in the casual use of antibiotics, it now looks like conventional medicine is creating several pandemics of some of the worst chronic diseases known.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, June 14, 2013 2:39 AM

My personal experience is that most common infections can be treated with home and traditional remedies. Yet I find that on first signs of any infection doctors prescribe antibiotics. Since it is easily available in India over the counter, people themselves self medicate with casual ingestion of antibiotics. This is playing with fire.

Only 1 in 5 Americans Gets Enough Exercise

Only 1 in 5 Americans Gets Enough Exercise | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

The news was less disappointing for aerobic exercise, with 51.6% of adults getting the recommended amount, than it was for muscle-strengthening activities, with only 29.3% getting the recommended amount.

The overall exercise rates also varied widely by state, ranging from 13% in Tennessee and West Virginia to 27% in Colorado.

The report was published in the May 3 issue of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a CDC publication.

"Exercise not only helps with weight management, it helps reduce anxiety and depression; boosts energy, immunity and brain power; and significantly lowers the risk for chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease," she said.

According to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adults should get at least:

=>  two and a half hours a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity such as walkin

=>  or an hour and 15 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, such as jogging.

In addition, adults should do muscle-strengthening activities, such as push-ups, sit-ups or activities using resistance bands or weights. These exercises should be done two or more days a week and work all major muscle groups, the guidelines suggested.

The highest proportion of adults meeting those guidelines were in the West (24 percent) and the Northeast (21 percent). Women, Hispanics and older and obese adults were less likely to meet the guidelines

"Simple steps to start moving include: enlisting a friend or family member to join you; taking a walk every evening after dinner; getting up and marching in place at every TV commercial; limiting TV and computer time; [and] scheduling your time to exercise in your daily calendar,

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, May 6, 2013 3:31 PM

The authors put a positive spin on this report but half of Americans are not exercising even at these modest recommendation levels (75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week).  The muscle strengthening data is even worse: 80% of Americans are not doing it.
