Osteochondrosis is a degenerative-dystrophic disease in which vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs are affected. As a result, the mobility of the spinal column is disrupted and clinical symptoms appear depending on the localization of the pathological process. When the cervical spine is affected, chronic headaches, dizziness, decreased visual acuity, a crunch in the neck.
The pathology of the thoracic region is characterized by a pain syndrome in the internal organs and is masked for diseases of the heart, stomach, intestines. The defeat of the lumbar region causes discomfort in the lower back, numbness of the lower extremities, cramps in the calf muscles, inflammation of the pelvic organs. Proper nutrition is essential in the treatment of the disease. Rice diet for osteochondrosis has gained great popularity because of its high efficiency and ease of use.
Ingredients and properties of rice
Rice is widely used in Asian countries as the main product for daily consumption, thanks to its useful properties. It belongs to the family of cereals and has at least 18 species. The bulk of the nutrients is contained in the peel of the grains, so it is better to use them in an unprocessed form - brown or wild rice. However, even in a polished condition, the cereal retains enough nutrients to maintain the health of the body.
The most useful unrefined wild rice is
. Rice includes carbohydrates( 63 grams), proteins( 7.4 grams) and small amounts of fats( 1.9 grams), while the caloric content of 100 grams of products is rather low and is 280 kcal. In addition, cereal is rich in vitamins of group B( B1, B2, B6, B9), tocopherol( vitamin E), nicotinic acid( vitamin PP), biotin( vitamin H).It contains trace elements such as iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, zinc, calcium, iodine. Due to its composition, rice is considered a dietary product, contributes to the normalization of metabolic processes, improves the functioning of the nervous, endocrine, digestive system, restores healthy skin, hair, and dental tissue.
A distinctive feature of rice from other grains is the absence in the grains of the protein gluten, which is capable of causing allergic reactions in the body.
Lecithin in the composition of rice activates the work of the brain and strengthens memory, and aminobutyric acid improves microcirculation and stabilizes blood pressure. One of the most important properties of cereals is its high ability to adsorb excess fluid, salts dissolved in it, toxins and under-oxidized substances that cause degenerative-dystrophic changes in the bone-cartilaginous tissue of the musculoskeletal system.
Dietary food based on rice can be used to prevent and treat osteochondrosis as part of a complex therapy of the pathological process. The use of rice diet should be agreed with the doctor in order to establish contraindications. The following diseases are the main limitations of rice consumption:
- chronic pathology of the small and large intestine, accompanied by flatulence, colic, constipation;
- obesity is 3-4 degrees;
- acute infectious diseases with high temperature;
- food and chemical poisoning;
- chronic processes in the urinary system.
The above contraindications are associated with dehydration of the body( loss of fluid), which can be observed with the use of rice.
Classical rice diet
The rice diet for osteochondrosis in the classical version is designed for strict adherence to the food regime for 42 days. Before the beginning of dietary nutrition, cereal should be subjected to special treatment. To do this, prepare six half-liter jars, number the glass containers from 1 to 6. In each jar, pour 2 tablespoons of rice, pour to the top boiled water at room temperature and place in a cool place without direct exposure to sunlight. The neck of each container is covered with a double layer of gauze to prevent dust from entering. Water in the banks must be changed daily.
Soaking rice removes gluten from grains, which improves the ability of the cereals to absorb
After a day they start a diet, while the first container pours out the liquid, the grains are spread into a saucepan, poured into half a liter of boiling water and boiled for 6-7 minutes. Boiled rice is eaten for breakfast without adding salt and spices, then starve for 4-5 hours before lunch, it is not permissible to drink even water. In the empty container, fresh grains are covered by the above method and placed at the end of the "queue" behind the jar No.6.Thanks to the soaking of rice, gluten is removed from it, which improves the absorbing properties of cereals. To increase the effectiveness of diet and prevent kidney disease, it is recommended to drink cowberry infusion daily.
Rice diet with boiling
Alternative variant of rice diet without preliminary soaking is its repeated boiling. To do this, 70-100 grams of grain is poured cold water, brought to a boil, cooked for no more than 5 minutes, poured liquid and washed rice under running water. The procedure is repeated 4-5 times, after which rice is eaten for breakfast by the above method, it is allowed to add a teaspoon of liquid honey to the serving. Diet is prescribed for a month, after a 10-day break, the diet is repeated.
Tibetan rice diet
In a glass or porcelain container pour round tablespoons round rice in an amount corresponding to the age of the person. Then the seeds are poured with water, completely covering the top layer of cereal, and put in the refrigerator. For breakfast, a pinch of rice without salt is cooked, which is eaten up to 8 am on the above method. The water in the rice is changed daily, the grains are mixed. The Tibetan diet is designed for 1,5-2 months.
Chinese rice diet
The rice-based diet in the Chinese version is somewhat different from other methods. To make cereal, you need to pour a pound of grains with boiled water, insist for 5 days, changing water daily and washing rice under running water. Then the grains are spread on paper and dried, the raw materials are stored in a paper bag. At breakfast cook a tablespoon of rice for 20 minutes on low heat without salt and spices and take the above method. Dietary diet adhere to for 2-3 months.
Treatment of osteochondrosis with rice should be combined with a full meal for lunch and dinner. In the daily diet include lean meat and sea fish, dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables, dishes high in chondroetin( jelly, jelly).Rice contributes to the removal of salts from the cartilage tissue, toxins from the intestine, favorably affects the reduction of excess weight, prepares the body for the full absorption of nutrients and improves overall health. As a result, the elasticity of the intervertebral discs increases, bone tissue strengthens, the blood flow in the affected areas of the spine improves, and the progress of the pathological process stops.
