View Full Version : Help Muscle Soreness

I was wondering if any of you knew of any raw foods that I could eat that would help relieve my muscle soreness. This is what I get for playing volleyball with guys that play competitively. Wow! I played with them yesterday and tonight I played in the woman's league and I am really sore. Thanks in advance,

pineapples reduce inflammation... i duno all raw foods are pretty healing. maybe green drinks. also, yoga, stretching, walking and jogging seem to do the trick for me.

I agree with the surfer. Muscle pain caused by movement is relieved by more movement.

Figure out what works for you. In my case I have to give those muscles a chance to rest.

gentle swimming in the sea is good followed by a gentle sun bath and a then a green smoothie I bet would help too :D
the sea here is too cold sadly :(

Hi all nightshade plants - potato, tomato, eggplant (aubergine), peppers & chilli cause inflamation or joint pain & agravate arthritis so giving them a miss for a few days will help to not add more pain. Arnica gel rubbed into sore areas really helps me after exercise.

Thank you all. Do you know I was craving for some pineapple. As soon as I got up this morning I thought "yes pineapple. I will start my day with some vitamin C." Your body knows what you need! I have some fresh pineapple that I will have for breakfast today. I will avoid the nightshade plants for a few days. I will take today and tomorrow off and go back to volleyball on Thursday!

I also find that Raisins immediately after a workout work for me. They are one of the most alkaline foods. My sister swore by them and she does Ironman triathlons. I run Half Marathons and Marathons and they really help me out. Pineapple, Ginger, Cilantro & Cucumber juice rocks as well. xoxo
Drinking lots of water and/or herbal teas to flush out the toxins in your muscles, hot baths, gentle stretching/walks, deep breathing, rubbing with arnica oil/cream, lovely massages, sauna and maybe some extra sleep...

I like a gentle movement exercise like rebounding to help move the toxins out of the body. You could try a few minutes of easy gentle rebounding and see if that helps.

Thanks again to all,
I feel better tonight. Another hot bath in a little while and a good night's rest and I hope to be back at 100% tomorrow. I have to look into getting a rebounder because I have heard so much about them lately.

glad to hear you are feeling better.
These are non food related but when I have a hard work out I take some homeopathic arnica remedy and a hot Epsom salt bath.
