Don't Suffer With Pain

Cutting Down Sugar

Simple Change to Improve Your Health

Excess sweeteners can take a toll on your health. Several studies have found a direct link between excess sugar consumption and obesity and cardiovascular problems worldwide. Here are some thoughts on how to cut down on sweets:

  • Choose water, milk, or unsweetened tea or coffee instead of sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and fruit drinks.
  • Reduce sugar in recipes. If a recipe calls for 1 cup, use 2/3 cup.
  • To enhance flavor, add vanilla, cinnamon, or nutmeg.
  • Eat fresh, canned, frozen, and dried fruits without added sugar. Choose fruits canned in their own juice or water rather than syrup.
  • Use fruits to top foods like cereal and pancakes rather than sugars, syrups, or other sweet toppings.
  • Read the ingredients list to pick food with little or no added sugar.
  • Use the Nutrition Facts label to choose packaged foods with less sugars.

Neck Pain Treatment Options

Patients with Pinched Nerves

Scientists examined the results of two groups of patients all with a pinched nerve in the neck.

One group had surgery for the condition, the other had physical therapy.

The surgical group did better initially, but over time both had about the same results.

The take-home message: if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a pinched nerve in the neck (cervical radiculopathy), discuss this with us and your doctor. Consider trying natural physical therapy care first.
