Fernandina Beach Pain Relief with Green Tea

We need to bring back teatime, that quiet time in the middle of the day to enjoy a quiet cup of tea away from the bustle of life! (Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor would enjoy such a break again!) Teatime was good for the mind and spirit and most likely very good for the body. Most days, we just do not have time, but just enjoying tea on the run in a reusable bottle on the way to your chiropractic appointment at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can be advantageous, especially if that tea is green.


In China, drinking tea is part of daily life. That’s a pretty good idea! In evaluating the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – common bone and joint diseases affecting many people – researchers found that tea has potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They suggested that tea has a great potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of the different types of tea properties are defined as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us offers us a delicious way to be healthier and even less painful!


The more information we gather about what nature has for us by medicinal plants, the more we will want to thank nature! Green tea is a common beverage sourced from such medicinal plants. Green tea via a multitude of pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects are proposed to be effective for pain relief because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is explained to be a safe and often effective treatment for pain management due to its suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), has shown itself to be a valuable anti-inflammatory factor as well as anti-oxidant. Research papers have explained how green tea is good diseases like obesity, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases. Green tea and its EGCG seem to curb the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea quite possibly enhances the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients with no severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its related spinal pain conditions like leg, arm, and neck pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so adding green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be an advantage.
