The 4 modifiable risk factors of Joint Pain and Its Current Therapy

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that about 1 in 4 U.S. adults have severe chronic joint pain due to arthritis. Arthritis is a conditions that affect the joints, tissues around the joint, and other connective tissues resulting in chronic pain. Arthritis means inflammation or swelling of one or more joints.

Although there are so many different types of arthritis, Some of the most common types include Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gout, and Childhood arthritis.

Among the arthritis risk factors you cannot control are age, gender and genetics. But there are other risks you can control: modifiable risk factors. Here are some tips and guidance from the CDC, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NOSH) and the National Institutes of Health.

1. Weight

People who are overweight or obese are more prone to osteoarthritis of weight-bearing joints like the hips, knees and feet. Maintain a healthy weight by eating healthfully and remaining as physically active as possible (see “Weight control”).

2. Infection

See your health care provider right away if you experience joint swelling, warmth or redness, as it might be the sign of an infection.

3. Joint injuries:

Ask about special exercises to protect your joints from injury or overuse due to knee bending and repetitive stress, which can damage a joint and increase the risk of osteoarthritis. Occupation. Avoid sudden or sustained exposure to force, vibration, repetitive motion and awkward posture.

4. Smoking:

Smoking tobacco increases the risk for and can worsen rheumatoid arthritis. It can also make it harder to stay active and may cause other health problems.

What can you do?

The focus of arthritis treatment is to Reduce pain, Minimize joint damage, Improve or maintain function and quality of life.

Current therapies:

Therapies might include over-the-counter products like acetaminophen and other non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Check with your health provider before trying any new therapy, Prescription medicines may be required. Other methods may include tai chi, yoga, heating pads, cold or ice packs, hydrotherapy, stretching, foam rolling, massage, acupuncture and cognitive and behavioral therapy.

Weight control:

• Proteins such as seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes (beans and peas), soy products, nuts and seeds
• Fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat-free or low-fat dairy products

How to manage Stress with Diet: Is it possible?

How to manage Stress with 100% Diet: Is it possible?

Do you ever think about the fact that, if you ate differently, you might be better able to handle the stress in your life? Do you ever wonder how stress might affect what you eat? No matter which way you look at it, stress and food are related. Stress can affect your diet and, the vice versa. Here under, let’s discuss how stress and diet are intertwined:

How to manage Stress with Diet: Is it possible?
Stress management with diet

What is Stress?

Stress is generally considered as being synonymous with distress and dictionaries defined it as “physical, mental, or emotional strain or tension” or “a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize.”

Healthy amount of stress can be helpful and good when it motivates people to accomplish more. Therefore, it is important to manage stress in any possible ways.

Stress Response

When you’re stressed out you’re more likely to either over-eat or under eat. Unfortunately, most people don’t realize how they sabotage themselves with stress. But either of over-eating or under-eating due to stress will negatively impact blood glucose levels that may result in mood swings. Commonly, this mood swings will create conflict and intensify your stress.

When you predominantly eat less nutritious diets loaded with lots of sugars and fats, your body doesn’t have all of the nutrients and energy supplies needed to deal with stress, so instead, you’re more likely to feel grouchy, tired, or anxious. In other words, when you eat the proper foods you are giving your body the fuel it needs to make it through common stressful situations.
Once you become aware of your stress response, you can make the choice to change it.

Stress and Immunity

Stress breaks down the immune system, while the right foods can help support it. Time and time again, studies have proven that stress makes our immune system weaker, leaving us exposed to dangerous viruses, bacteria, and illnesses. It has also been proven that when you eat the right foods you’re helping your body build and maintain a healthy immune system. The key here is simple: Eat right, feel great!

When you look at all of the ways that stress and diet are interwoven, it’s hard to deny the fact that the foods you eat affect how you think, feel, and react. After all, an unhealthy diet not only stresses your body, but your mind as well. A good starting point is to evaluate your daily diet and make one change at a time to create that healthy lifestyle you deserve.

Is Diet Alone Enough?

A healthy and balanced diet can help you manage stress much more effectively, but simply eating right is not enough to help you deal with stress.

There are many different things you can do to help control and manage your stress such as:

  • Getting 7-8 hours of sleep at night
  • Making time to relax
  • Having a support system
  • Knowing your limits
  • Proactively planning and organizing
  • Being able to say no

These are just a few stress solutions that, in addition to healthy eating, will help you limit and control the stress in your life. When you incorporate even just a few of these healthy living strategies into your life, you’ll find that overwhelming stress is a thing of the past; and the weight will be lifted off your shoulders.

Remember, every day is a new opportunity to change your diet, AND YOUR LIFE.

Eat right, Feel great!
