Food for pain relief

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to eat to relieve pain. I've heard omega 3 and vitamine B combined is good - does anyone know any more about this?

Thanks

Have you spoken with your doctor/nutritionist/dietician?

I find water works exceptionally well, especially when I accompany it with a couple Excedrin tablets.

Actually I am researching this on behalf of somebody else. I've heard certain food types can reduce inflammation and consequently pain - a combination of salmon and spinache is supposed to be really good for example. I just wondered if anyone had any other suggestions or things that had worked for them.

Pain relief without the medications... maybe it's wishful thinking.

I suffered from chronic pain after an accident. Thankfully, I was healed through a successful spinal fusion (in my neck, titanium, dead man's bone & voila!). A book that helped me was "The Path to Pain Control" by Meg Bogin (sp?).

My best remedy with the most direct effect would be some advil with water.

My doc told me that fish oil reduces inflammation, so maybe your salmon idea has merit.

My hubs suffers from gout. Tart cherries seem to ease it a bit. More for some people than others.

i have a friend with gout and he drinks cherry juice for that - sayd works wonders. when stomach is upset ginger tea - make tea and grate lil fresh ginger in it. drinking mint tea also helps stomach and great for my sinus. the mint opens up sinus. but aches a pain tall glass of water advil and a hot bath.

A dr is good to some of the pains maybe from something that needs looking into

Good Health to all.
