Our expert says:
Keep well hydrated to promote healing.
Minimise stimulants such as caffiene as this will interfere with healing.
Aloe vera juice is helpful for inflammation.
Bilberry contains flavinoids that reduce inflammation.
Cats claw is good for inflammation and healing.
Cayenne, curcumin, devils claw, echinacea, ginger, goldenseal, red clover, white willow bark and yucca are all good for inflammation.
Consume half of a fresh pieapple or fresh papaya daily. Pineapple contains bromelain and papaya contains papain, both enzymes that reduce swelling and inflammation. Only fresh pineapple or papaya(not canned) is effective.
Eat foods high in flavinoids, which are powerful antioxidants and useful for inflammation reduction. Spinach and blueberries are excellant sources of flavinoids. Strawberries contain smaller amounts. Quercetin, found in onions is good for infammation as well.
Having spent time at an osteopathic frozen shoulder clinic in london I recommend this as a very helpful treatment. For more information on osteopathy visit www.osteogoodhealth.com
