Can your diet affect the pain you feel in your joints? Dr. Dan Albright, an orthopedic surgeon in Raleigh, NC discusses how your diet causes inflammation in your body. Eating a diet that reduces that inflammation can help the joint pain in your knees and hips.
For many years Dr. Albright was constantly empathizing with patients who hurt - their knees, their hips, their backs, and their feet. The patients just wanted to feel better. Many patients had migrating pains across many joints. With much of America being heavy, overweight, or excessively overweight, joint pain is an increasing problem.
So what do you do?
There is good science behind this. There are several good books on the subject. "Wheat Belly Diet" - a New York Times bestseller and "Grain Brain." These books are full of good information. For additional information search for "low inflammatory food." The best way is to eliminate wheat which is the most inflammatory food we eat.
