The S.A.D. is sad for many reasons.

Baton Rouge DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may influence obesity and chronic
pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body as
well. Poor diet many times contributes to obesity, influences
the immune system adversely, and delays
recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet in place of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these concerns when swapped
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients
with chronic pain often find some relief with wiser
A review of 172 papers suggests
that effects of specific foods are comparable
to drug management therapy for chronic pain. Natural compounds like the
phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil are such.
Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices consumed three
times a day alongside fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine
are good on a daily basis. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and
cheese and red meats can be mixed in weekly. It is
not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) Such a treat
causes it to be more palatable to achieve
a diet change! Eating this way facilitates
inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A well-known diet referred
to as the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for reducing
inflammation and fostering neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if started in a timely manner after the injury. (3)
Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant
in the care of chronic pain and Baton Rouge back pain at
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is eager to share
that anti-inflammatory diets help
patients heal from disc herniations and other
spine related injuries.
