I was having such aches and pains....sort of generalized. When I stopped eating meat, it went away...and I was more flexible. I still have joint pain, but expect that, as my knees are out of alignment. Am glad the other pain went away!!! Does anyone know what the connection is??

That's great. I have no idea what the connection is, if any, though I've never heard of meat causing aches and pains so it may be all circumstantial.<br><br><br><br>
How quickly did this transformation come about? And how long have you been pain free now? Here's hoping it lasts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/beer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":beer:">

2 nights in a row we had black beans (made too much) and I could feel ithe relief on the evening of the second day. The pain has come back if I stray. Still in the process of weeding out the proteins...ie. whether or not cheese or eggs have the same effect. This has been going on for about a month. When I went to physio and showed the therapist my quad stretch, she said she would never had dreamt that I would be able to do that. (I don't know if she meant so soon, or ever??) I have a feeling it is connected to inflamation.

You might be feeling better because of increased blood flow.<br><br>
Cholesterol from animal products can clog your blood vessels and limit blood flow, which can cause pain, numbness, and other problems.<br><br>
A healthier, plant-based diet doesn't have all that cholesterol, so blood flow is better.<br><br>
So, that may be why you are feeling better.<br><br><br><br>
...Just my theory.

One avenue to pursue is that excess protein can lead to gout in sensitive individuals.<br><br><br><br>
Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe not.<br><br><br><br>
You'd best consult a nutritionist if you want to know for sure what the connection is. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

In the China Study, it goes into great detail why animal protein is so harmful and leads to all sorts of aches and pains and even worse things than aches and pain.<br><br><br><br>
Everyone who is interested in their health should read this book, as well as those who are not interested in the health. <a href="http://www.thechinastudy.com/" target="_blank">http://www.thechinastudy.com/</a>

I think in simple terms it may have to do with excess production of ureic acid, which can be a consequence of excess intake of protein. This can cause muscle pain, among other symptoms. (The gout thing is correct and is one manifestation of pain and inflammation, but there it is mostly in the joints). That would make sense, as an explanation. JMO.

All said is true for some people, but still I don't think that one or another is a reason the sushine77's pain went away. Some people with fibromyalgia also feel better after going veg*an.<br><br>
With the given information I don't have a clue why the pain went away - but on the other hand: congrats that you've got rid of your pain.
