The term arthritis literally means “joint inflammation”, but refers to a wide variety of rheumatic diseases and conditions that can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints. The most common forms of arthritis are Osteoarthritis, involving the deterioration of the of the cartilage, and Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder. Arthritis can be reversible, and in some cases curable with proper diet and lifestyle changes.
Dairy products, red meat, and fat should be avoided along with caffeine, citrus fruits, paprika, salt, sugar, tobacco, and nightshade vegetables. Eaten frequently tart red cherries and fresh pineapple can help relieve inflammation and pain. Rice, wheat, rye, and other foods containing the amino acid histidine are good for removing excess metals from the body, a common problem among people suffering from arthritis. Foods rich in sulfur including asparagus, eggs, garlic, and onions help repair and rebuild bone, cartilage, and connective tissue and also aid in the absorption of calcium. Green leafy vegetables, non-acidic fresh fruits, whole grains, oatmeal, brown rice, fish, soybean products, fibrous foods, deep sea fish, and avocados are highly beneficial foods and should be included in the regular diet.
