A note about Rheumatoid Arthritis Nutrition and Diet Choices
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Doctors and researchers were confused with what they were finding, or not finding out, about RA. Recently, however, more and more doctors and RA sufferers are turning to nutrition to help soothe and ease the painful swelling of joints suffered during a flare-up.
It has been found that diet changes can greatly affect rheumatoid arthritis symptoms in most sufferers. Many researchers have found that there is a certain type of rheumatoid arthritis nutrition that sufferers need and have developed a few diets to help them meet their nutritional needs.
The bottom line with rheumatoid arthritis nutrition is that its important to avoid foods that are fried or derived from animals as much as possible. This includes things like beef and pork, any kinds of foods cooked in oils, dairy products, and eggs. All of these products can cause the body to react negatively to the animal fats in them and cause a flare-up.
Its been found that the best diet for a person who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis is one that contains lots of fatty fish and fresh fruits and veggies. Since wheat is often a problem for RA sufferers, it is recommended that rice be used to get complex carbohydrates instead.
Try to avoid nightshade plants such as eggplant, tomatoes and potatoes, and avoid foods that inhibit calcium absorption, like cranberries, coffee, alcohol and spinach. This should help to reduce the number of flare ups you suffer from and help you to get on an even keel with managing your rheumatoid arthritis nutrition.
Its also been found that fasting can be beneficial to the body to help avoid RA flare-ups, but this should be done with caution as it could make the symptoms worse if not done properly.
It probably wont be an easy battle working with a new diet and nutrition plan, but it will likely serve you well in the end. Youll find that if you stick to it and eliminate many of the foods that cause your symptoms to worsen, then every once in a while, it wont hurt you to have that roasted eggplant or steak that you so crave. Just take it easy, manage your symptoms and remember all things in moderation.
Oh, and a little side note, though an important one. Rheumatoid arthritis nutrition works much better when used in conjunction with an exercise regimen of some kind. So get out there, take a little walk. Dont over do it, but get your body moving.
