Best Foods for Pain ReliefCan you get chronic pain relief from food? Check out eight foods that fight pain to include in your chronic-pain-management strategy.

No single food can completely stop chronic pain, but a healthful diet is a powerful part of your pain-management strategy. The Mediterranean diet, for example, is rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthful unsaturated fats. These edibles can help build strong bones and muscles, and -- in some cases -- can even fight pain. A wholesome diet also helps prevent pain-aggravating weight gain and boosts your energy levels and mood so you can cope more comfortably.
