Farmingdale: The Ideal Treatment For Low Back Pain

Do you ever notice how when the weather changes, joint pain increases? What is the reasoning behind that? It’s true that during colder weather, rainy weather, increases in humidity, and fluctuations in temperature can lead to increased pain. The reason behind this is the change in barometric pressure of the atmosphere. Many joints in our body have pressure receptors inside of them and when changes occur in the atmospheric pressure, they affect our joints as well. Increases in pressure outside our body can cause changes inside our body leading to a swelling inside joint, increased fluid, and less space for our joints to operate within. When swelling/ inflammation increases inside our body, our joints are less able to move properly and structures which provide cushioning such as cartilage may not function as well. Based on this, it’s normal for a patient to experience these symptoms, especially those with more progressive arthritic and degenerative changes.

• 2 large beets • 4 long carrots • 2 apples • 6 celery stalks • 2 limes or lemons • 2 tsp flour • 2 inches of Ginger HEALTHY REC I PE MIRACLE RED JUICE


Prepare beets, carrots, apples, celery, limes (or lemons) and ginger by chopping into smaller pieces before placing into a juicer. As the skin of a beet is packed with antioxidants and nutrients, it is recommended to leave the skin on the beet. Beet skin and lemon peel (if using) have strong flavors, so you could also prepare half with skin and half peeled to adjust to the flavor, or simply peel all if preferred. Apples can be any color or variety. Do not peel the ginger, which you will add to taste as ginger can be spicy. After all ingredients are added to the juicer, blend until juiced and smooth. Drink juice as soon as possible to obtain all benefits of the antioxidants and nutrients. Miracle Red Juice can be absorbed more easily on an empty stomach. Drink one glass every other day or as needed.
