Implementation of targeted dietary and lifestyle approaches is an extremely powerful way to reduce stress, minimize inflammation, and reduce the risk for illness and chronic disease. True, the many biochemical processes involving cortisol and other hormones, stress, and inflammation and their impact on health and disease risk are complex and elaborate. The therapeutic diet and lifestyle strategies, however, are not. The more we learn about the way the body responds to the demands placed on it, as well as its extraordinary healing power, the more we are valued as professionals who can effectively change people’s lives by improving health, inspiring change, and increasing longevity.
Cortisone is active primarily as an agent for the rapid conversion of proteins to carbohydrates (a glucocorticoid ) and to some extent regulates the salt metabolism of the body (a mineralocorticoid). The therapeutic dose, however, when used as an anti-inflammatory drug, is much larger than the amount normally present in the body, and the minor functions of the hormone become exaggerated, leading to edema (swelling), increased gastric acidity, and imbalances in metabolism of sodium, potassium, and nitrogen. Continued research has resulted in drugs in which the glucocorticoid activity is enhanced and undesirable actions are practically eliminated.
What a complex complaint PF is. Nothing seems to be the same as in treatment, just the pain which is nothing like other pain. What sometimes works or suits 1 doesn't another. I had a Cortizone injection 2 months ago which didn't improve. In general I am told to wear gel heels and then for me I find they make it worse, no matter how soft they are. I find soaking my feet in ice is like being in heaven and temporary relief is the taping recommended by the doc. It takes a lot of the discomfort away. Go onto U Tube to see how to do it. I did pay privately to see a Podiatrist and he sorted insoles out to the shape of my foot in some trainers. They are the most comfortable things I can wear. It seems to be a complaint that is in curable. Sometimes I am told it can just disappear.
