Joint pain from ITB syndorme/tendonitis, will fasting help?
The reason I am interested in fasting is because of the healing benefits I've been reading about. About two years ago I was diagnosed with ITB syndrome (iliotibial band friction syndrome, which is an overuse injury in the knee from running too much), and about one year ago I was diagnosed with tendinitis in my shoulder from overuse/tennis/falling on it. Both of these injuries have healed for the most part, however, i still experience joint pain at times, and my joints make terrible clicking and crunching noises. Anytime I exercise or do something physical I can feel it in my joints, and I can't perform anywhere near the level of intensity that I used to. I've read that fasting is beneficial for joint pain, namely arthritis. I'm wondering if anyone has any input on whether or not fasting is beneficial for my conditions, and also whether or not juice fasting would be more or less beneficial than water fasting. I am 22 years old, and I have an athletic build. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
