Best Foods to Eat If You Start Feeling Sick
Your entire body aches
Foods that ease muscle aches depend on the specific reason for the body aches, says Kristine Arthur, MD, internist at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley, Calif. For general muscle aches, food containing magnesium or calcium may help ease soreness, she says.
Best foods: Magnesiumcontaining foods include nuts, bananas, beans, leafy greens, and avocados. Foods high in calcium such as canned salmon, yogurt, darkgreen leafy greens, and orange juice fortified with calcium also lessen muscle cramping and pain.
