Docs: 10 cherries daily can cut arthritis pain

CHILDREN. DOCTORS HAVE KNOWN FOR SOME TIME THAT CHERRIES CARRY A LOT OF HEALTH BENEFITS. IT CAN PREVENT GOUT FLAREUPS OR CONTROL JOINT INFLAMATION. BUT, A RECENT STUDY FOUND EATING JUST 10 CHERRIES A DAY CAN HELP MANAGE PAIN FOR THOSE WITH ARTHRITIS. 11 NEWS REPORTER MEGAN PRINGLE EXPLAINS IN THIS WEEK’S WOMAN’S DOCTOR. YOU CAN’T TELL BY JUST LOOKING AT LAURA DUGAN THAT MOST DAYS SHE IS IN PAIN. SOMETIMES I WOULD CALL IT EXCRUCIATING. IT’S A STABBING PAIN. IT MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO WALK. THE PAIN COMES FROM ARTHRITIS. SHE SAYS SHE FEELS IT THE MOST IN HER LOWER BACK. FROM INJECTIONS TO PAIN RELIEVERS, LAURA AND HER DOCTOR — MERCY MEDICAL CENTER’S JAMES MCGOWAN — HAVE COME UP WITH WAYS TO MANAGE THE PAIN. HE SAYS OFTEN TIMES A SIMPLE CHANGE IN DIET CAN HELP. THERE ARE ALSO A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT FOODS THAT HAVE SOME PAIN-RELIEVING PROPERTIES THAT WE KNOW ABOUT AND SO ENCOURAGING PATIENTS TO USE THAT AT LEAST AS A PART OF THEIR PAIN CONTROL REGIMENT IS SOMETHING WE TRY TO FOCUS ON.

FOR EXAMPLE, DIETIANS AT MERCY RECOMMEND CHERRIES. THEY SAY WHETHER IT’S A JUICE, A JAR OR PILL, IT CAN REALLY HELP. CHERRIES ARE GREAT. THEY HAVE ANTHOCYANIN IN THEM AND THAT GIVES THEM THAT DEEP, DARK RED COLOR AND THOSE ARE GOING TO BE PACKED WITH ANTI-INFLAMMATIONS AND HELP PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIC PAIN. DR. MCGOWAN SAYS A RECENT STUDY BACKS THAT UP. HE’S KNOWN THAT CHERRIES HAVE TREMENDOUS HEALTH BENEFITS, BUT SAYS MEDICAL RESEARCH FOUND THE FRUIT CAN BE USEFUL WAY TO STOP PAIN. WHAT THIS STUDY SHOWED WAS THAT TAKING CHERRIES AND EATING THEM ALLOWED PEOPLE TO SHOW THEIR BLOOD REDUCED THE LEVEL OF INFLAMMATORY CHEMICALS IN THEIR BLOOD SO IT’S ONE MORE THING PEOPLE CAN THINK ABOUT IN PAIN CONTROL. LAURA DUGAN EATS THEM ALREADY. SHE’S WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO MANAGE HER PAIN SO SHE CAN LIVE HER LIFE. I TRY DO WHAT I CAN BECAUSE I NEED TO LIVE, I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE AND THAT DOESN’T MEAN BEING STUCK AT HOME JUST SITTING THERE.
