Are you noticing aches and pains in your knees, shoulders, hands, hips, or elbows? Joint pain is a common presentation of inflammation in your body.
Common causes of joint pain include:
Degenerative changes from osteoarthritis
Carrying extra body weight
Lack of sleep
Did you know that your diet can impact pain and inflammation in your joints? Everyone is different and responds differently to foods. Some people are sensitive to nightshade vegetables which include eggplant, tomatoes, chili, and bell peppers. For example, how do you feel after eating Eggplant Parmesan or eating a spicy dish with salsa?
Other common triggers for joint inflammation include sugar, fried foods, as well as gluten and dairy.
What can you do to relieve joint pain?
✅ Switch to a clean, anti-inflammatory diet (eliminate sugar and fried foods, and consider a trial off gluten, dairy, and nightshades)
✅ Correct posture and ergonomics
✅ Regular exercise to strengthen the surrounding muscles
✅ Lose any excess weight
✅ Take key supplements for joint health
