As mentioned earlier, the reason why I can’t run every day, is because I have issues with my knee. It gets sore from running and is taking time getting better. I imagine I have a constant form of inflammation and irritation in my knee.
So I did what I do best, I went online and did research on my problem. This time I read up on food to eat to combat inflammation. I found more than one source confirming that both the Omega 3 fatty acids (found in oily fish) and olive oil are natural anti-inflammatory agents, apart from all the other benefits. As I have never been prone to cholesterol (I donate blood so I always know my levels) I believe I can manage more oil intake. Especially this healthy kind. So now I am going to try increasing my intake of extra virgin olive oil and canned oily fish.
Why not use some pills / drugs?
I am especially going for a natural product here, not a manufactured drug. Not that I am in any way against manufactured drugs, I support it. I ain’t no hippie. But I would prefer changing my normal lifestyle to compensate for problems rather than resorting to alternative solutions. I also have this idea in my head that, if there is a natural cure for a disease hidden in nature, then God in his wisdom knows exactly how to package it for man. And I would prefer taking it in that package… or as close as I can get to it 🙂
