How to Treat Chronic Pain, Naturally

Let your food be your medicine.


Control Chronic Pain with tropical fruit.#5: Pineapple
Just 1 cup of this tropical fruit contains a variety of enzymes and minerals that ease pain caused by fibromyalgia. One of the most abundant is bromelain, an enzyme that helps reduce swelling and inflammation. Pineapple also contains high amounts of manganese, which is essential to the formation of collagen in the body; often with fibromyalgia, collagen production is impaired, leading to a greater sensitivity to pain. Your 1 cup of fresh pineapple chunks provides you with 100 percent of your  recommended daily value of manganese.
