Update on health–”Nightshades”

Sawadee Khrap

I mentioned when I got back from the Burma trip that I felt a lot better. Fox TV aired a clip about a lady who teaches Ayurvedic medicine and she made a statement that eating “Nightshades” can cause an allergic reaction in some people causing joint pain.    (i.e.   egg plant, bell peppers, potatoes, tomatoes) 

So for the past 2 weeks I have eliminated all of them from my diet , and gone to just rice and vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, onion, and carrots) and at every other meal a small portion of chicken.  Almost all the joint pain has gone or going away – amazing.    Knee joints, what I thought was ligament stiffing and pain, are all subsiding.  I wake up in the morning having had a better sleep and more energy.   Amazing, I would never have guessed it and I am sure “modern” medicine would never had suggested either.  When I mentioned my pain to the doctors they just shrugged it off to poor exercise and old age.  The only thing I’ve done is eliminate them from my diet – and for sure have not exercised more.

I’ll post my progress,  but I thought it best to get out there a.s.a.p. as many others may be suffering and not even have the slightest idea why –  its worth a try if you do have joint pain.
