So this week, we’ll be talking about easy tips that don’t require too much change in your eating habits yet which have the ability to keep you healthy as well as alleviate the chronic pain in your neck and back.

Fiber rich foods include vegetable, fruits, oats and grains, mushrooms, cabbages among others. A special mention to the herb, psyllium husk.
