Nutritional Therapy & Natural Medicine

Joint and muscle pains

Joint and muscle pains commonly improve when the mineral balance of the tissues is addressed. Very often people are too low in magnesium and potassium, and this can cause pain and muscle tension, or the uneven pull of muscles on the skeletal structure. There are many other nutritional factors that can help pain and condition of the joints and muscles to improve, even when it is caused by conditions such as arthritis of various sorts, or inflammation in parts of the body. There are nutritional components that have an anti-inflammatory effect which do away with the necessity for anti-inflammatory drugs, and conversely there are foods which encourage inflammation, which can be avoided.
