Food Sensitivities and Joint Pain

Joint pain can be frustrating and debilitating, especially when it gets in the way of doing the things you love most. Some studies suggest that minor lifestyle changes and an anti-inflammatory diet can decrease joint pain symptoms.

Symptoms

  • Joint Swelling
  • Joint Tenderness
  • Locking of the Joint
  • Reduced Range of Motion
  • Weakness and Stiffness
  • Limited Mobility

Causes of Joint Pain

Chronic joint pain can be caused by a number of factors including:

  • Past injuries
  • Inflamed tendons and muscles
  • Infection
  • Related inflammatory joint diseases like Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis

Relationship to Food Intolerance

One way to combat joint pain is to avoid foods that can increase inflammation. For instance, when dealing with a food intolerance, undigested proteins can make their way into the bloodstream and cause inflammation among other symptoms.

Taking a food intolerance test may help you diagnose and eliminate problem foods in your diet. Utilizing a simple finger-prick blood test, microarray technology can identify the foods that your system is sensitive towards – all with just a few drops of blood.
