My Three Favorite Inflammation Remedies — 2 Comments

  1. I like the tips here. I do eat ginger and drink green tea, but not as regular as you do. Maybe I should try more after reading what you do.

    Do you take more ginger and cinnamon with oatmeal after a longer run?

    • Hi,

      I take about the same amounts every day, but not every single day.

      This morning I carefully measured 3/4 cup of oatmeal, 2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp ginger. It was a bit strong, so my shakes of ginger and cinnamon must be less than what I estimated.

      When I’m training for a marathon or just running a lot, I follow this practice almost daily.

      There are plenty of mornings when I’ll have a muffin or pastry for breakfast. I’m no saint! This is usually in the “off season.”

      If I’m sore after a run I’ll use a roller and sometimes an ice pack on areas that hurt. Often I just do some light stretching.
      I also have a hot tub which is great for relaxing sore muscles and relieving joint pain.

      It really takes a combination of diet, training, stretching and rest.

      I appreciate your questions!

      Andy
