You are probably thinking what can herbal or alternative therapies do for effective pain relief for chronic or acute pain?

Foods That Fight Pain: A Dietary Approach to Conquering Migraines, Backaches, and Joint Pain

vegatable-marketIt’s normal to experience aches and pains every once in a while, but if the condition happens frequently, it can impair your quality of life. The good news is the root cause may live in your pantry, which means it is easy to fix: eliminate this trigger food from your diet, and stick with foods that fight pain.

Certain foods act as triggers for arthritis and migraines. At the same time, high-fat foods can increase inflammation and alter estrogen levels, affecting menstrual cramps, migraines, and even increasing the risk of certain forms of cancer.

High-fat foods also damage the arteries, creating blockages that reduce blood flow to the brain, heart, and spine. This explains why back pain is the most common form of pain and the leading cause of disability among American adults younger than age 45.

To determine if you have a dietary trigger for chronic pain, or just need an arterial makeover, consider a three-step intervention. Chances are you’ll be pain-free within months, with a clean bill of health. Continue reading “Foods That Fight Pain: A Dietary Approach to Conquering Migraines, Backaches, and Joint Pain”

Incrediwear: Products for Pain Relief and Injury

kneeThe founder of Incrediwear, Jackson Corley, was a chiropractor for over 20 years who shifted his vocational focus to a more global scale after suffering a severe injury when a mountain biking accident left him with three herniated discs in his lower back. Knowing the risk of complications from surgery, Jackson researched alternative healing methods, despite the counsel of his doctors.

His research in anions (a negatively charged ion) led him to what is now Incrediwear technology, embedded in the fibers of all of his products. He constructed a back brace and within a year he recovered; he was able to run and bike, after being told he may never be able to do these things again. Realizing the potential of his products, Jackson continued developing a line of braces, sleeves, and socks in an effort to help people recover from various ailments.

How does Incrediwear work?

Negative ions are negatively charged particles that are both prevalent in nature and released by Incrediwear products. Negative ions have a plethora of health benefits with no known side effects.

Negative ions stimulate molecular vibration which increases blood flow and blood speed and helps bring more oxygen to the area of use. This helps the body:  Continue reading “Incrediwear: Products for Pain Relief and Injury”
