13 Foods that Fight Pain

12. Flax Seeds and Flax Oil
Freshly-ground flax seeds and cold-pressed flax oil, contain plentiful amounts of fatty acids known as Omega-3s. Do not cook with flax oil otherwise it will have the opposite effect-irritating the body’s tissues and causing pain.

13. Raw Walnuts and Walnut Oil
Raw walnuts and walnut oil also contain the same powerful Omega-3 fatty acids that fight pain and inflammation in the body.

When it comes to pain, food really is the best medicine.

Interesting article made all the better by the fact it promotes foods that are tasty, personally things like strawberries and blackberries are altogether TOO tasty!

I knew about ginger, turmeric and celery, but thanks for another reason to eat cherries and berries.

I suffer from arthritis and was prescribed Celebrex. I had to stop taking it because it made my stomach run and I lost too much weight. I eat very healthily but must include more of the food items recommended.

Wow! I love it when really great things are actually recommended!
