‘Plant Based Diets For Pain’ by Sue Kenneally

Plants really are nature’s painkillers. The problem is that the foods that we perceive to be ‘comfort’ foods have a genuine effect on our pain sensors and can reduce pain in a very similar way to prescription painkillers, so they are very good at making us feel better at the time that we eat them. But in the long term they are inflammatory foods and make our pain worse. Plant foods don’t give us the same immediate pain relief, but in the long term they are anti-inflammatory and healing, and have been shown to reduce chronic pain. During this talk we will look at some of the painful conditions that can be improved or even completely controlled by eating an unprocessed, plant based diet, and some of the reasons behind this.
