Wash away pain injuries with water

Whether it’s your feet, your knees or your shoulders that are throbbing, experts at
New York ’s Manhattan College , say you could kick-start your recovery in one
week just by drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily. Why? Experts say
water dilutes, and then helps flush out, histamine, a pain-triggering compound
produced by injured tissues. “Plus water is a key building block of the cartilage
that cushions the ends of your bones, your joints’ lubricating fluid, and the soft

discs in your spine,” adds Susan M. Kleiner, Ph.D., author of the book, The Good
Mood Diet. “And when these tissues are well-hydrated, they can move and glide
over each other without causing pain.” One caveat: Be sure to measure your
drinking glasses to find out how large they really are before you start sipping, she
says. Today’s juice glasses often hold more than 12 ounces, which means five
servings could be enough to meet your daily goal.
