Essential Oils For Sciatica
hey guys, i'm dr. axe. i want to talk aboutall natural ways to reduce pain and inflammation in your body. i'll tell you, there are fourmain ways that i've found over the years in my own body that i've noticed that hey, wheni do these things i've noticed that my joints feel better. i'm a runner, i'm a triathlete,so oftentimes when i'm doing a lot of the running on the pavement, i can feel some painin my joints. but when i do these things nutritionally,
Essential Oils For Sciatica, i can notice a difference. so if you are strugglingwith arthritis, or fibromyalgia, or any type of joint pain, these are things that may beable to help you. number one thing you should consider addingin to your diet if you are trying to naturally get rid of pain are proteolytic enzymes. andenzymes like proteolytic enzymes are found
in certain types of fruits and vegetables.bromelain is found in the core of a pineapple. bromelain naturally reduces inflammation.in fact, a recent study has proven that athletes who have injuries to their acl or sprainedankles, when they were consuming proteolytic enzymes like bromelain, it actually reducedtheir recovery time by 50%. a huge difference, especially if you're an athlete, or have anytype of injury. proteolytic enzymes like bromelain and papain. here's my favorite, by far my favorite proteolyticenzyme supplements. it's called wobenzym. wobenzym is incredible, you can find it ondraxe.com, or go to any health food store, they'll have this product as well. but again,wobenzym has proteolytic enzymes that are
great for naturally reducing inflammation. aside from proteolytic enzymes, number two,is herbs. there are certain types of herbs that naturally reduce inflammation. numberone is turmeric. and turmeric is one of the main ingredients in curry. and what's in turmericis called curcumin. it's been shown to be a natural anti-inflammatory. so doing someturmeric daily, also ginger and boswellia are other types of anti-inflammatory herbs.but specifically, turmeric and ginger. you know, a lot of times i'll do a shot of ginger.ginger juice, or i'll throw some ginger in some sort of asian cooking dish that i'm makingthat day. or just throw [audio cut 00:02:13] smoothie. but again there are a lot of waysto get ginger. but again ginger is also a
natural anti-inflammatory. so turmeric andginger, two great ways to naturally reduce inflammation. number three, essential fatty acids, especiallyomega-3 fats. if you naturally want to reduce inflammation and be pain free, get more omega-3fats in your diet. and from a dietary standpoint, eating wild-caught salmon, and mackerel, andother fatty fish, is one of your best options. also getting some omega-3 fats from grass-fedbeef and pasture-raised dairy is great. along with flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts.so flax seeds, chia, seeds, and walnuts, along with grain-fed and grass-fed dairy and wild-caughtfish, great sources of omega-3 fats that can help naturally with joint pain.
and number four, getting more potassium andelectrolytes into your diet. listen to this principle, sodium brings water and nutrientsinto your cell, potassium flushes waste water and toxins out of your cell. americans consume10x too much sodium and only one-tenth of potassium. what does this do? it causes yourcells to swell up and hold on to water. if you've ever noticed you have joint swellingand tissue swelling, well that's because you have too much sodium and not enough potassium.as you start to consume foods or do cleanses higher in potassium, your body can flush andget rid of even things like cellulite and the extra fluid in your joints. and what i recommend for that is doing a cleanseor drinking a beverage called sueroviv by
garden of life or beyond organic. it's calledcultured whey. cultured whey has been used for over 2000 years to speed up the healingprocess. people like hippocrates actually used this as a healing beverage long, longago. so cultured whey is high in potassium. also coconut water and certain types of fruit.so again doing coconut water on a regular basis is good. if you want to know more aboutthe sueroviv check out culturedwheycleanse.com. getting more, again, potassium to flush outthe excess water, speed up the healing process. another great way to make your joints feelgreat. hey, again if you have joint problems or pain whatsoever, try these four things.i know you're going to see some great results with them.
