Strains, sprains and other injuries of tendons and ligaments can be addressed through the use of proper nutrition and supplementation. When an injury occurs, the body initiates a series of defense mechanisms which is called inflammation. The body builds a wall-like deposit at the site of the injury which allows excess body fluid to accumulate, this is what we refer to as swelling. This swelling actually impairs the healing process, as adequate blood flow to and from of the injured area is critical in order for reparative agents to reach the site of the damage, and for the toxins to effectively leave.
In 1958, there were only a handful of food additives, and 419 pounds of chemicals were added to the food chain annually. In 2004, there were 3,000,000 additives, and 2,000,000,000 pounds of chemicals were added to our food chain. These chemicals are deposited in the digestive tract, colon, liver, kidneys and the lymphatic system.
