Dr Oz: Dark Cherries for Joint Pain
Ashley Koff, Registered Dietitian, has a food prescription to improve your health and end your pain. Many people do not realize how powerful food can be when it comes to treating pain, but Dr. Oz says there is actually a lot of science to support that fact. One of the most common areas of pain for many people is in their joints. Dark Cherries work just as aspirin would as an anti-inflammatory treatment to end your pain.
- Eat 20 Cherries per day
- Buy Dark Cherry Juice – drink a small amount as this is highly concentrated and could contain sugar
- Purchase frozen dark cherries
Dr Oz: Tahini Cures Headaches From Magnesium Deficiency
So many people suffer from headaches and rather than reach for a pain medication, Ashley Koff recommends Tahini, which will work as a natural muscle relaxant to alleviate your pain. Tahini is basically crushed up sesame seeds, which are a really rich source of magnesium and will help with headache pain because it eases the muscle spasms and improves brain chemistry. Research has actually shown that people who experience frequent headaches and severe migraines are often deficient in magnesium.
- Found near other nut butters at the grocery store
- Eat 2 tablespoons per day
Dr Oz: Papaya Cures Back Pain
Dietitian Ashley Koff says that there has been a lot of research in the medical community and you will often see people who have been prescribed supplements that include Papain, which is Papaya Extract, to treat their back pain because it actually works. She says the rich color of the flesh means that Papaya is loaded with Vitamins A and C, which are super healthy antioxidants that will go in your body and reduce inflammation and stress to ease your back pain.
- Purchase fresh or frozen Papaya
- Eat about 1 cup per day for most benefit
Dr Oz: Ashley Koff – Food as Medicine
