Best Summer Drinks for Fibromyalgia

If you are a pain patient or dealing with fibromyalgia (FM), you already understand the role, inflammation plays in your life.

Hot weather will sap your body of needed fluids. Therefore, hydration is important to help the body clear out inflammation that leads to pain. Avoid drinks that contain alcohol or caffeine, which can promote dehydration and try to avoid sugary sodas. And don’t wait to drink until you are thirsty.

Few drinks mentioned below should be taken into account for fibromyalgia patients in summers:

Pain Relieving Smoothie Recipe

Inflammation is the main cause of pain, especially in conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. To help reduce inflammation and relieve some of your pain, reach for an anti-inflammatory smoothie recipe to fuel your summer.

This delicious smoothie is filled with various healing properties like barley grass and cocoa.  The cocoa helps your body produce nitric acid, which provides better blood flow.  Both barley grass and cocoa contain powerful anti-inflammatories and antioxidants to help ease pain and leave you with a sense of well-being.

The best ingredients to blend up into your anti-inflammatory smoothie recipes contain:

  • Ginger
  • Turmeric
  • Pineapple
  • Nuts, like almonds
  • Berries
  • Leafy greens, like spinach

You can blend up your own inflammation-fighting smoothie based on this list, or of your choice. Many of these smoothies can be whipped up in less than ten minutes.

Juices

Juicing for fibromyalgia is the optimal way to get live nutrients, minerals and enzymes into the body and bloodstream. This is the best infusion for FM nutrition we can give ourselves, especially when sick or deficient. There are some nutritious substances that are not always tolerated through blending or eating raw, yet can be more easily tolerated when juiced instead.

Water

Water is an essential part of a healthy eating plan for FM. Low energy levels can be connected to dehydration, so be sure you are drinking enough water.

Incorporate it with each meal and in-between meals. Carry water with you wherever you go so you can be sure your energy levels are constantly being replaced.

Lemon Water

Lemons are rich in the antioxidant powerhouse vitamin C, which is essential for a strong immune system and fighting free radicals and inflammation.

To limit the amount of caffeine, we combine this one with chopped pecans and anti-inflammatory mint. With only five ingredients, you will be eating this one in no time.

Drinks to Avoid

Sodas and Carbonated Drinks

Sodas are extremely unhealthy for your body. The acids in them can destroy the stomach, the additives can destroy your entire body and the sugars are very harmful too. According to recent studies, diet sodas (diet Pepsi, diet Coke and so on) could actually be as dangerous as the normal sodas and, under certain circumstances, they could be even worse especially for fibromyalgia patients.
