Self-Treatment Approach for Hip Pain

The following self-treatment steps are for hip pain due to early stage cartilage thinning, chronic strains, muscle tightening and problems with hip joint alignment.


First and foremost, if you are overweight, lose the weight. This will reduce pressure to your hip joints, potentially reducing pain.

The fastest way to lose unwanted weight is to:

  • Restrict sugar, corn syrup, fruit juice, grain carbohydrates and starches from your diet.
  • Increase vegetable portions (make 50% of the vegetables you eat uncooked) especially greens.
  • Eat animal protein especially fish, chicken and then beef  (OK to eat some fat with it).
  • Nuts, seeds, avocado, coconut, olive oil and free-range pastured eggs should be your main source of fats.
  • Limit yourself to no more than 1,000 calories per day, and do at least 30 minutes of brisk exercise three times a week.
  • Drink water throughout the day to help your body flush out released toxins from metabolized fat cells.

Stay away from “diet labeled” and “low-fat” foods, as these are not wholesome.  You should lose at least 2 pounds a week on this diet pretty consistently.
