When you’re in chronic pain, often you’ll try anything. You want the all around great benefits that can come with putting good things into your body, but sometimes we ask more from our diet. Sometimes we hope that there is a dietary change we can make to assist in a chronic condition, and little will wear on you like chronic pain.
Some people look for ways that their healthy diet can also impact their medical ailments. Certain branches of holistic medicine have told us that this is possible, but what do you look for in juicing recipes for pain? That’s a lot to ask from a glass of juice, isn’t it?
Not when you add organic hemp protein into the mix. Organic protein from hemp contains properties that work with these other ingredients to help you get out of chronic pain.
The idea is to put together a recipe that contains all the soldiers you need to fight your symptoms. If you are looking for juicing recipes for cough, you’d concentrate on recipes that have throat soothing ingredients. You might even look for something that reduced mucus buildup. For pain, you want things that ease pain as well as helping with inflammation, a common contributor to pain symptoms.
Some examples might help you. Pineapple is a great common juicing ingredient. Pineapple has bromelain in it. Bromelain reduces BOTH pain and inflammation. How’s that for soldier number one?
Celery and cucumber are almost always in the fridge. What could they be good for? Celery can relieve joint pain and lower blood pressure, and cucumbers cooling nature can help your inflammation. Carrots are great for inflammation as well.
The awesome thing there is that reducing inflammation in your body can help relieve pain on it’s own. Sometimes swelling in our bodies presses on nerve endings, causing extra pain.
Juicing is not just for fruits and veggies too. Never forget about herbs and roots. Ginger can add anti-inflammatory properties to any juicing recipe, and turmeric (whole root, NOT powder) is both a pain killer and anti inflammatory. Both will also add some spice to your juice, so pair them with extra sweet things.
The point here is that putting healthy things into your body is always a good thing to do, but when you need some specific symptom relief, take a minute and do your research. Make sure the recipe employs the right arsenal to fight the way you would want it to. While a new juicing recipe might not cure every symptom, it can be used in combination with other things that help you fight chronic pain.
