Foods That Help with Pain

These are the foods that I have found that help with pain.
Dark Red Cherries: An older friend suggested this one to me. She told me how her grandmother ate a handful of dark red cherries every day and sometimes severa times a day. I have tried it and it does take the edge off my fibromyalgia pain.

Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother: It has many benefits, helping with pain is one of them. When I use this I put about a jigger full in a large glass of water. I know some people who put theirs on thier salad. I have done this for a couple years and it helps every time. I don't even realize it.

Well I am still drinking green smoothies. You can not imagine my surprise either. I noticed when I drink them I have less indegestion.

Today the smoothie had 2 small cups of red cabbage, 1 cup of sliced peaches, 1/2 cup of red raspberries, and 1/2 banana. I don't think I will do the red raspberries again as it has too many seeds. I just needed to finish them up.

I decreased the banana from a whole one to a half today too. When I started doing smoothies in December I was using 2 whole bananas and that was entirely too much. A whole banana every day is still alot. But if you don't use banana it doesn't have a creamy taste.

I tried it that way. The flavor of the greens was too obvious. The fleshy fruit of the peach seems to do it though. It is still creamy with the peach and half a banana.

Anyway the inflamation is still low depending on what else I eat. That helps. I can't really say the smoothies do alot for the pain though. Part of the reason maybe that I somehow hurt my back and that clouds everything though.

Does anyone else use food as medicine? How is that working for you?
