Pain Free 2013 Part III: Add!

Last month we discussed what you can eliminate from your diet to increase inflammation and, subsequently pain.  This month we're going to talk about some things to add that can serve the same purpose!

1. Vitamin D
Studies suggest that vitamin D can help combat chronic pain, nevermind how vital it is to everyday health. Our bodies create vitamin D in response to exposure to sunligh, but most of us don't create enough.  Supplementation can be the best choice.
