Pain Medications Cause Joint Pain & Joint Damage

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Back pain is the second most common condition that people visit their doctor for.  Likewise, prescriptions medications to treat pain are often the first line o treatment recommended by doctors.  Unfortunately, pain medications do little to address the actual origin of the pain and serve more to mask the outward symptoms.  The consequences of long term pain medications on healing and nutritional status are discussed in this Web Wellness University video below…

Prescription Drugs for Pain Don’t Solve the Problem

Drugs only mask inflammation, they do not correct the source. Many pain meds also cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies. This side effect can prevent long term healing. For example, NSAIDS (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can cause folic acid and vitamin C deficiency. Both of these vitamins are crucial for the body to be able to repair damaged cartilage, joints, tendons, and ligaments. See the diagram below:

Most, doctors specializing in the treatment of arthritis, joint pain, back pain, neck pain, and other diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system never even consider diet as an important factor in the development of these conditions. I was formally trained in rheumatology at the VA hospital in Houston, TX, and I can say that diet and nutritional recommendations to patients were discouraged and in most cases frowned upon by our attending physicians.  It was actually this experience that prompted me to dig deeper into the connection between join/muscle  diseases and food.

Over the past 10 years, I have treated thousands of patients with arthritic conditions. The most single effective therapies have always been diet and exercise. The paradox with exercise… It is harder to stick to if it flares up the arthritis. The problem with food…everyone reacts uniquely based on their own unique chemistry. But it only makes sense that if drugs can target inflammation as a treatment, why can’t food. After all, isn’t food a drug of sorts?

I have found that medical research greatly supports this connection, but more importantly, I have found that patients get better after eliminating inflammatory foods from their diets. What foods should we avoid to help recover from arthritis?  Depends on the person. Everyone is unique.

Problems That Benefit With The Right Diet Changes:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscle spasms
  • Stiff man’s syndrome
  • Degenerative disc disease, disc herniations
  • Sprain/Strains
  • Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow
  • Chronic Repetitive Injuries
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • spondyloarthritis
  • psoriatic
  • reactive arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scleroderma
  • Myofascitis
  • Dermatomyositis

If you suffer with a chronic pain condition and have been using medications with little benefit, try finding a functional medicine doctor.

Allergy Relief

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

Who Else Wants a Natural Way to Fight Allergy Symptoms Without the Toxic Burden That OTC Allergy Medications Have?

These natural options don’t contain the dyes, sugar, corn, starches, and other toxic fillers that traditional prescription and over the counter allergy medicine contain.

Outdoor allergies can be extremely frustrating.  Unlike food allergies, you can’t control what is in the air.  Environmental allergies to molds, dust, pollen, grasses, and other chemicals are very common.  When allergy counts are high, it can sometimes be impossible to prevent the disabling symptoms associated with them.

  • Watery, teary, itchy eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Excessive mucus production
  • Coughing
  • Chronic sinus infections…

These problems are often times responsible for chronic and debilitating immune dysfunction.  Many develop fatigue on top of the above symptoms and become completely incapacitated when allergy counts are high.

4 Simple & Natural Tips to Reduce Allergy Symptoms

  1. Make sure you check daily mold, pollen, and grass counts. This is done easily online. If counts are high, try to avoid any outdoor activities.
  2. Consider air filtration using a HEPA graded device coupled with UV light. This type of air filter will remove many of the common allergens from the air in your home.  It will also help to destroy mold spores that commonly circulate in our indoor air.  Remember that a standard air filter won’t cut it.
  3. Consider adjusting your diet during the allergy season. Remember that foods can contain chemical histamines that make allergy symptoms worse.  Avoiding the following foods will help reduce your burden:  Alcohol, pickled foods, wheat, wanuts, vinegar, cashews, beans, smoked meats, citrus, tomatoes, and any processed foods with preservative nitrates or sulfites.
  4. Use the following Natural products to build your immunity and stabilize histamine release:


AllerEase allergy relief support formulaThis all natural product contains key ingredients that help support respiratory and immune function.

Vitamin C – is a natural anti-histamine and supports stabilization of the membrane around immune cells.

Quercitin – Like vitamin C, quercitin supports mast cell (immune cell) stability.  In addition, it is a powerful flavonoid with anti-oxidant functions. Quercetin has been shown to promote both sinus and respiratory health.

Stinging Nettle –   A number of research studies have shown stinging nettles ability to support healthy nasal passageway function.

Bromelain – helps support normal mucosal tissue function and aids in the superior absorption of quercetin.

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) This sulfur containing amino acid is a key ingredient used by the liver to form the potent antioxidant, glutathione.  NAC helps to promote the normal viscosity (thickness) of mucus.  As many allergy symptoms are brought on by an increased mucus viscosity.

The dosing to use for this product is 2 capsules every 3-4 hours as needed for the symptomatic support of seasonal allergies.  >>> Click here  <<< or on the button below to order.
