How foods and supplements affect your pain

Did you know that "healthy" foods may be contributing to your pain? Are you sure that supplement you are taking is helping you?


How foods and supplements affect your pain

Digestive health issues and food sensitivities are becoming more prevalent.  Often called “the Second Brain,” the digestive system is a foundational part of an individual’s quality of life.  When your quality of life diminishes, food allergies, sensitivities and intolerances may play a significant role.

Did you know that a good quality supplement will not contain most, if not all, of the following?

  • nuts,
  • peanuts,
  • sesame seeds,
  • mustard seeds,
  • wheat,
  • gluten,
  • yeast,
  • corn,
  • egg,
  • dairy,
  • soy,
  • crustaceans,
  • fish,
  • artificial colour,
  • artificial preservatives,
  • binders or
  • fillers.

Dr. Camille Krause, Naturopathic Doctor, will discuss how foods and supplements may affect your pain at the fifth workshop of the WRCPI on Thursday May 11, 2017 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

The presentation will be about 30 minutes, followed by a question period (30 minutes max.).

Following that there will be a 15 minute break and an open Q&A on any pain topic.
