Any dietary changes that can help prevent/heal tendonitis? I seem to be prone to this and would like to know what can be done nutritionally if anything to improve the situation.

Thanks

Look for antiinflammatory effects like fish oil. Really just moving to a more paleo diet with lots of nutrients and adding fish oil should help if it is not already occuring. Beyond that, I am no help.

Nick is right. Inflammation and overuse issues are the things to look at.

Hi Kevin

I recently recovered from a nasty bout of tendonitis in my elbow and an impinged shoulder, I found the following really worked for me:

1- Completely eliminate refined sugar from diet. I don't know the science behind it, but after I went "off" sugar for a few weeks, I could feel the inflammation flare up if I reintroduced sugar into my diet.
2- Eat high quantities of raw or very lightly cooked fresh vegetables
3- Take fish oil- to paraphrase Larry L- "It's food".
4- Judicious intake of Vitamin M (motrin).
5- Be sure you are eating plenty of lean meat and healthy fats- these are the building blocks required to repair damaged tissue. I believe the high intake of vegetables is crucial- putting your body into a net alkaline PH makes a huge difference in recovery.
6- ICE/Heat therapy.
7- Very easy, "range of motion" type stretching and exercise of the affected areas.

Thanks I do all that except the motrin. You are right though I guess the motrin would help the inflamation. Thats the same as advil right ibuprofin? I will give it a shot. Thanks

Along with all the excellent advice from above...

Eat grass fed beef, eggs and lean cuts of meat. Get rid of the excess amount of omega 6s in your diet...grain fed animals.

Omega 6s = proinflammatory

People with arthritis are supposed to also take GLA from Evening Primrose oil...I believe it's suppsoed to be like a 4:1 ratio of Omega 3/GLA...don't quote me on that however.
