According to Dr. Oz here is the game changing development. Doctors now believe that chronic pain is not merely a symptom of another condition; rather, it’s a separate disease and should be treated as such. In some cases chronic pain is the result of inflammation. But in others it has a more complex yet little- understood cause, one that’s tied in to how the brain processes pain signals. Long exposure to physical pain isn’t healthy.
According to Dr.Oz adding these five super foods to your grocery list helps with longevity.
Broccoli: or other cruciferous veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and Brussels sprouts. They’re great because they have chemicals in them that help detoxify the body and prevent cancer.
Eggs: A powerful source of protein. Many people think eating eggs increases blood cholesterol. Not true. Eggs contain choline, a B vitamin shown to reduce inflammation in the brain, which may lessen the chance of developing Alzheimer’s. And these protein powerhouses protect your bones and fight frailty, too. Antioxidants and other nutrients in egg yolks help prevent macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness, and protect the retina from UV sun damage.
