How Does Food Affect Pain?
Every bite of food you eat turns into the cells that make up and run your body. This means that we are what we eat. Different cells of the body need different nutrients. When those cells do not get those nutrients, it is very difficult to function properly. If you already have a health condition at play, depriving the cells of the necessary nutrients only compounds the problem.
Pain is a result of nerves in the body sending pain signals to the brain. People who suffer from chronic pain are experiencing a malfunction in the nervous system. The nerves are not sending pain signals properly. The nervous system, like all systems of the body, needs certain nutrients to function properly. If your nervous system is already struggling, and when you deprive it of the necessary nutrients, the problem will be intensified, and the pain will be intensified.
Another way that food affects pain is through inflammation. Many foods are considered inflammatory foods. Anyone who is experiencing chronic pain should be practicing a strict anti-inflammatory diet. An anti-inflammatory diet not only reduces pain and inflammation but is also packed with all of the vital nutrients your nervous system needs to function properly.
