HERE ARE SOME STEPS I HAVE TAKEN TOWARD HEALING. INCLUDED ARE FOOD IDEAS TO FURTHER RESEARCH. WAYS TO ASSIST IN HELPING THE HEALING OF AN ACUTE OR CHRONIC PAIN SITUATION.
There are so many ways to approach healing the body. Hip and joint pain indicates that other aspects of health need to be addressed. I hope that makes sense to those reading here. If it does not, then it is important to examine the idea that we are all capable of healing our bodies. That our bodies are capable of healing themselves. In order to heal, I believe, it is important to consider and eventually accept that premise. I have chosen not to employ allopathic medicine to heal my body. Because of that choice, I have taken all that I do with serious fun. I fully understand why people choose traditional medicine, especially for pain, and I say that from my heart.
What is serious fun? Take action, do my best to stick to the plan and have a sense of humor about it all. Working at having fun is sadly ridiculous.
The prior post was about basic digestive health improvement. Here I want to address some very basic dietary ideas that have been very useful to me in the healing of my hip.
WHERE TO START
Using some kind of edible clay to absorb toxins in the digestive tract is one way to start. If you are not familiar with the term heavy metals, it would be a good idea to find out more about what they are and how to rid your body of them. Absorbing minerals that the body needs to heal is inhibited by heavy metal contaminants.
Juicing and green smoothies are really helpful. I have pasts posts about how to juice with a high power blender if you do not have a juicer. Juicing and green smoothies are a great way to clean up out cells and repair our bodies. The importance of consuming organic produce has to do with the soil it has been grown in, which is more mineral rich than produce that is not grown organically.
Seaweeds are mineral rich and easy to prepare or just eat out of a bag. Dulce, kelp, nori are three that need no prep. Minerals are needed for every cellular process. Most diets in many parts of the world are devoid of organic and easily assimilated minerals. If our diets are low or devoid of these needed minerals then our bones become the go to source for these minerals. Teeth are bones.
If you are not a vegan or vegetarian consider eating sardines. The condition of our waterways and oceans is a concern. I buy Wild Planet Sardines. I eat sardines when I feel the need. They are rich in minerals. I just knew the first time I ate them that it was the right thing to eat. Fish or organically raised birds or beef are proteins to consider when rebuilding the body. I keep the portions small and remember proper food combing. I have written about PFC in the other posts.
Egg yolks or whole eggs [organic only] are another option for animal source protein. Purchase eggs from a local farm and reliable source. I eat 2 to 3 at a time. How often is dependent on many factors. No rules. Once a week, month. I once had a huge craving and ate them everyday for a week. I soft boil the eggs. Fry them on a low heat in organic coconut oil. Some people use the raw yellows in smoothies. I have done this and it has been easy to digest. Combining them with fruit is not so easy to digest. Eating the whole egg is fine, just do not overcook them. When they get rubbery they don’t taste as good and are harder to digest.
Colostrum, raw butter, raw coconut oil, raw cheese are some options for people to rebuild joints. Keep the individual portions small and they will be digested and assimilated well.
