Nutrition and Pain



  • Health Canada launched their Healthy Eating Strategy in October 2016. This two-year project will "help make the healthier choice the easier choice for Canadians."

    It is important for all of us to eat healthy—and people in pain are no exception. Having a good diet can lead to increased energy, decreased inflammation, and other benefits.

    Our Pain Waves Podcast episode with Dr. Caroline Coombs, a licensed naturopathic physician and health educator, might shed some light on this topic. Listen to the podcast here as she discusses the link between nutrition and pain.

    What are your tips and strategies for healthy eating? Maybe you track your food in a diary, or switch your juice or pop for water at meals. Tell us!
