“Proper nutrition is needed for joint health. Getting patients to change to a whole foods diet, mostly plants, helps reduce pain and inflammation in as little as two weeks. These benefits are amplified when you remove processed foods such as bread, sugar and dairy products. Foods like salmon contain essential fatty acids and vitamin D, berries are rich in anti-oxidants and one of my favorite supplements to give to people with joint and muscle pain is Vitamin D. So many people are low in vitamin D and it often can make a big difference.”
