Boulet: Relieving Arthritis Pain

Healthy Eating!

Study after study reinforces the delicious idea that eating chocolate, especially dark chocolate, is good for you (in moderation, of course). One reason is that cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate, is packed with antioxidants called polyphenols. The higher the percentage of cocoa in a bar, the higher the concentration of polyphenols. Polyphenols will help fight inflamation in the body, in turn, helping relieve arthritis pain. This recipe, made with cocoa powder, will let you reap the health benefits of dark chocolate without its bitter taste or extra fat or sugar. You can reduce Inflammation by EATING HEALTHY!

Back to my Routine!! “For the last 15 years, I have been walking 30 min. a day for exercise—but lately I was unable to do it because my legs would start hurting. After PT, I am able to walk some at a slower pace and able to stand and do chores easier. I would love to take the whole gang home with me—what a joy that would be.” -Marian C.
