-- Boston Chinese Acupuncturist recently visited an 88 years old Japanese lady who can clean her house and cook her own food. Mary with her family moved to Wellesley 15 years ago. She has been taking care of her three children and husband with healthy home-made food for many years. Her husband is now 96 years old and has no knee pain at all while Mary developed knee pain 8 years ago around the left side kneecap. The knee pain gets agitated when she climbs stairs upward and downward.
Her apartment was on the second floor and she never used the elevator because she was told by someone that climbing stairs would improve the functioning of her heart. However, the knee pain got worse every time she climbs the stairs. Meanwhile, she went to an orthopedic surgeon in Newton Wellesley Hospital. After the investigation, the doctor told that the pressure on her knee becomes 6 times more when she climbs stairs. The doctor advised Mary to walk on the flat surface if she wants to avoid knee pain and future knee surgery.
Mary was afraid of having knee surgery at the age of 80. She went to Boston Chinese acupuncturist in Needam and took acupuncture treatments for her knee pain for 8 times twice a week. Her knee pain was gone and now Mary is 88 years old healthy lady without any joint pain. The secret of longevity is to keep moving and eat homemade food as much as you can.
It was one time when Mary went out with her friend and had restaurant food for a few days. The high salt diet made her knee swell making it very stiff the next morning. She instantly had a lot of watermelons to reduce the swelling and supplement some electrolytes naturally. The high salt diet can constrict the blood vessels around your joints leading to problems like knee pain, back pain, and wrist pain. The pain becomes worse when the joints are not able to get sufficient blood flow. Without sufficient blood flow and proper movement, our joints will degenerate at a much faster rate than the joints of our older generation.
