No grains and cereal are OK, but cook them well, this makes them alkalic. Bread is more acidic though, esp sourdough bread. I forgot to mention that sprouts are also very alkalic, you might want to eat more of those.
Fruits are very good for snacks, just don't eat too much of them, as with everything.
I believe I have also mentioned UDO's oil (or other EFA-oil) in an earlier post, this helps combat inflammation and speeds recovery (also on cellular level).
I don't think the fact that your knees are also inflamed is of great importance now. It just shows that your body was in an inflammatory state already, and it now also spread to your knees. Stretch'em! Probably your patella tendon is inflamed?
If it really persists, go see some therapist: they will be able to help. Btw elbows and knees often show some similarities in Chinese Medicine. Often we would stick a needle in the knee to treat an elbow problem, and vice versa!
yes my patella tendon is inflamed.
my left knee keeps popping out medially, and my right knee laterally. I stretch em when i wake up and when i go to bed. if my knees are inflamed due to microtears in the tendon, wont stretching this early in the game aggravate it?
do you know of any yoga asanas that are good for this?
I go to a chiropractor. she is amazing. reiki and everything.
I would go to a doctor who specializes in injuries like this, but they would just inject me with cortisone. that's how doctors are around here. I wont allow them to shove a steroid in me, one is not edge, 2 its not vegan, 3 it will weaken me even more. good old fashion rest, stretching, and diet for me.
