Musculoskeletal Disorders

Prevalent, incapacitating and painful
Diseases of the muscles, joints, and bones are not unusually dangerous, but they are frequently the most prevalent and incapacitating complaints. At the same time they are extremely painful as they include arthritis, back pains, fibromyalgia, gout, sciatica, etc.

Although there is usually a physical or hereditary cause underlying the problem, the onset of the symptoms is often linked to physical or psychological stress. And because we have come to think of these symptoms as inevitable, part of the tear and wear of living, we often tend to do nothing about them, or simply take painkillers. But such drugs have only a temporary effect and do nothing about the underlying condition, aside from adding their numerous side effects to an already aggravated situation.

The benefits of correct nutrition
Yet many of these disorders are directly related to poor nutrition-poor in the sense of faulty, not beggarly, since gout is notoriously a disease of the rich. All of them can be certainly improved by correct nutrition. First, by boosting the immune system; second, by reducing inflammation; and third, by eliminating the causes, if these are poor nutrition or food allergies, as they frequently are. Hence nutrition has a very important role in such disorders, and as always where nutrition is concerned, it is free of harmful side effects.
