Foods containing high amounts of refined carbohydrates and omega-6 fatty acids are considered significant factors in the development and severity of chronic pain according to a recent study.
Modern corn based foods have very high ratios of pro inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids compared to anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.
This leads to increased prostaglandin synthesis and increased sensitization of C-fibres and neurogenic inflammatory pain.
Foods that can help reduce neurogenic inflammatory mediated pain:
Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, selenium, magnesium, zinc, curcumin, and flavonoids can all significantly help the pain reducing effects of other therapy treatments for chronic pain.
An open minded place for alternative thought and discussion.
