The Hidradenitis Suppurativa Diet that will relieve your pain
It is not widely known that your diet can have a huge impact on your Hidradenitis Suppurativa flare-ups. Inflammation is one of the major factors, and can aggravate the pain your experience.
Now you can adjust your diet to get your body into a anti-inflammatory state. Special thanks to Therese Wilson of The Fast Hidradenitis Suppurativa Cure™ for sharing her research with me.
What is inflammation?
Inflammation is a reaction by your body when it experiences injury or infection. This leads to a swollen and reddened area on the injured area, which can often be hot and painful. In the case of Hidradenitis Suppurativa, this leads to those painful cysts forming.
Increased levels of inflammation can also lead to more health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Preventing inflammation will lead to a healthier body in the long run.
How can I prevent inflammation?
This is where Therese Wilson’s (author of The Fast Hidradenitis Suppurativa Cure e-book) research is invaluable. Therese has found that by adjusting your diet, you can largely prevent inflammation. This prevention of inflammation leads to a less painful outbreak of Hidradenitis Suppurativa, and if her diet is coupled with her other recommendations, leads to full recovery within two months.
Some of the advantages of preventing inflammation can be listed as:
- Lowers risk of diabetes
- Lowers risk of heart disease
- Helps reduce painful flareups (hidradenitis suppurativa and arthritis especially)
How does the Hidradenitis Suppurativa Diet work?
There are certain foods that will aggravate your inflammation, and similarly there are other foods that will make inflammation less likely. Knowing which foods to eat, and which to avoid, will ensure fast relief from your HS pain.
Following a Hidradenitis Suppurativa diet is not about portion control, or counting calories. It is rather being smart about what to eat, and what to avoid.
Which foods do I avoid?
One of the golden rules is to avoid sugar as much as possible. Foods containing high fructose corn syrup will make your flame-ups worse, by aggravating your inflammation. At the same you must avoid any artificial sweeteners, these will do the same.
Which foods must I include in my diet?
To prevent painful flare-ups, foods like tomatoes, bananas, cherries and spinach have been proven to work wonders. A great guideline to keep in mind, is to eat as colourful as possible when it comes to fruits and veggies. The more colourful your fruit and veg intake, the bigger (and better) variation in the vitamins and minerals your body receives.
If you are a chocaholic, always go for dark chocolate as this contains some great nutrients from the cocoa plant.
For those who enjoy a tipple, rather opt for red wine. Numerous studies have shown that red wine has many health benefits, and this also applies to HS.
Finally, you must drink plenty of water. This is a vital part of any healthy eating plan, and it is the same for relieving, and recovering from HS pain.
