juicing for health recipes If you have been wanting to get healthier by consuming more fruits and vegetables, but find the actual doing it part a bit challenging, then you need to read this.

So when I saw the Vitamix blender being demonstrated a couple of years ago I was interested, but skeptical. This without a doubt is the most powerful and useful tool  for long lasting health and for helping  fight joint pain I have found.

This post by my friend Maryann, a local naturopath reinforces so much of what I talk about on this website. Please read and take heed of these important and timely reminders.

Many think that weight loss, exercise, and medications are the only way to help alleviate pain, but there are also a number of foods that you can add to your diet that will help as well. Hip pain is often caused by inflammation in the joint, whether it is caused by arthritis or the result of an injury. Having a healthy diet high in Omega-3 fatty acids and low in Omega-6 fatty acids will not only help you keep the inflammation down but will also help the rest of your body. Omega-3 is known as one of the natural remedies for arthritis, and has also been proven to help lower cholesterol and promote a healthy heart, Omega-6 on the other hand plays a big role when it comes to inflammation, and can even worsen the occasional hip pain that we dread so much.
