Every morning when my uncle wakes up, his back is stiff and achy. It starts loosening up throughout the day, but the dull ache never really leaves him. He has had to curtail many of his activities, including his beloved golf. He’s done everything in his mind to relieve the pain, including surgery, pain killers, physical therapy and rest. For a period, his back feels better, but after a while, the pain returns.
There may be another way…
According to Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD, back pain is on the rise and major causes include stress, a poor diet, sedentary life style, overweight and/or smoking. Why smoking? Because “smoking literally starves your vertebral discs of oxygen and nutrition.”
He recommends to “eat high-nutrition, whole foods to keep your bones and back tissues healthy, find ways to relax if you’re stressed out, because tension alone can create back pain” and exercise more.
What’s the easiest way to consume the optimal healthy diet so that you can prevent and/or cure back pain? Drink fresh organic juice!
