Nutrition is important for people with persistent pain and for optimal health in general!

Changes in diet can reduce inflammation in the body, balance blood sugar levels and support the nervous system. Optimizing your diet can change your pain!

Over the course of 3 weeks, you will be introduced to simple nutrition concepts that can greatly impact your health. You will learn about:

  • The link between the nervous system, chronic pain, and diet

  • How to decrease stimulation of the nervous system through diet

  • Foods that fight chronic pain and foods to avoid

  • How digestion can affect chronic pain

  • Healthy choices in each food group (carbohydrates, fats and protein)

  • How to balance blood sugar levels through use of the glycemic index

  • Food sensitivities and how to identify them

  • The supplements that CHANGEpain recommends for pain management.

Your teacher will provide you with resources to take home and give you tips for implementing these changes at home. You will learn about how to eat healthy on a budget, and how to shop for healthy foods. You will also receive recipes and meal plans to try at home!
