Dr. Cody Fowler of Symmetry Sports in the Body Firm Wellness Center and I are putting on a Free Community Lunch and learn at Body Firm about the causes of joint pain and home remedies to help along with nutritional foods to heall joint pain and inflammation caused by joint pain. This will be THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11TH @ 12:30-1:15 with a 15 min Q and A. Please come by EVERYONE is welcome …why? Because by 30, we’ve all had microscopic tears in our cartilage, the thin, rubbery tissue that covers joints and protects bones from rubbing together. We don’t feel these injuries because cartilage has no nerve endings, but over time they can cause chronic inflammation, which weakens and erodes joints.
Salmon is a great source of one of nature’s best anti-inflammatory compounds: omega-3 fatty acids. Choose wild salmon – farmed varieties have fewer omega-3s and sometimes none at all, says Beth Reardon, director of integrative nutrition at Duke Integrative Medicine in Durham, N.C.
Canned salmon typically comes from wild fish, so it’s a good low-cost option. Sockeye salmon also contains vitamin D, essential for healthy joints and bones.
