You can substantially reduce or even completely eliminate many kinds of chronic pain with a special diet that's rich in certain carbohydrates, and low in fats, protein and sugar.

Substantially increase your consumption of complex carbohydrates, these include foods such as wholegrains, ( with the exclusion of corn), beans vegetables and fruits, so these make up 70-80% of your food intake.

Avoid refined carbohydrates, such as sugar, honey, and syrups, and cut your total sugar intake by at least 40%.

Avoid all fats and oils including butter, margarine, meat fats and lard, as much as possible. Also avoid fatty meats, whole milk, cheese with more than 1% fat content, and egg yolks.

Give both caffeine and alcohol a miss.

Take an amino acid supplement called tryptophan, this is converted by the body into serotonin, a pain relieving chemical.

The combination of the special diet and the tryptophan should dramatically elevates your pain tolerance.

RE: control of chronic pain

This is very drastic.

Have you proof that it works? Are there respectable trials?

How is it supposed to work?

The diet plus tryptophan regime has been endorsed by Dr Carol A Warfield, director of the pain management unit at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, who says, "It is a safe effective nutritional approach to pain relief.

I will try to find out more information for you.

Hi Mike2305 (can I just call you Mike?)

Wow, this is interesting stuff, but I have to admit I don’t understand ‘Why' so I'm a little bit sceptical!

Any information you have, at a physiological level,that backs up your claims about the effect of fats and or carbohydrates on our ability to register pain would be appreciated.

Very strange and hence very dangerous.
My good advice will be to learn what is pain and its pathway patterns and how pain works.
Without understanding it is impossible to propose something (and sorry, you have no any understanding )
