Tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis... I have so many clients with the "itis" issues. I talk to people every day who are suffering from these and other inflammatory conditions. Although we do what we can during the workouts to maintain range of motion and functionality, I also believe that some people can actually improve these conditions with a modified diet. There is now a lot of information available about an anti-inflammatory diet. I believe that if we were to make even 3 basic dietary changes, we could improve our bodies ability to control inflammation. 3 helpful ideas are listed below:
1) Increase your omega fish oils and foods high in this product (such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, olive oils, nuts, avocodo, etc).
2) Add fruits and vegetables which are strong antioxidants and therefore helpful in strengthening our immune system.
3) Reduce the amount of dairy in your diet (which may actually lead to inflammation in our bodies).
Consulting a dietician is always a great way to get started as well.
