Thinking back at all the times I had an achy back and my feet hurt, I know now it wasn’t because of the physical work I was doing. I put those pads in my work boots and it didn’t help. The pain was excruciating.
It was inflammation all those years because of what I ate. I never figured it out until a few years ago. So many ailments, conditions and diseases are actually caused by unhealthful food we eat.
When I drank alcohol many moons ago, I loved whiskey and cola. That was my drink, along with pizza and beer, chips and dip, buttered popcorn , corn nuts and much more. The grain alcohol caused gout. With each bout, it switched between my left and right big toes. I don’t drink anymore, so it hasn’t returned.
‘Obesity is not a consequence of a drug deficiency or a lack of will power, but a lack of knowledge of which nutrients are necessary and which concentrations that are required to control silent inflammation and therefore control appetite [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2952901/]’.
Other things I ate like dairy always congested me. I coughed up mucus and my ears plugged up. Nuts like pistachios and cashews were my favorites causing me aches and pains because of their lectin.
I remember one Halloween I got my favorite chocolate candies to hand out to the kids, and we dove into the bags. It inflamed my feet and joints in my knees, fingers and everywhere. The active culprit was the fructose. HFCS (high fructose corn syrup.)
If you have similar aches and pains, you might want to stop eating suspect foods and drink like these listed below. Furthermore, you might want to talk with your doctor about an elimination diet.
