Are there certain types of that can reduce
inflammation and pain?
Absolutely. The food you eat does influence arthritis
pain. There are arthritis foods to avoid that can actually trigger inflammation while
food for arthritis
can help renew cartilage. The battle against
arthritis pain can be won at the dinner table by
learning to avoid some foods and adding other foods to
The first of the arthritis foods to avoid are foods with arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid
is a fatty acid that is found primarily in saturated
fats and animal product food including red meat, pork,
poultry, all dairy products with the exception of nonfat
dairy products, and egg yolks. Arachidonic acid causes
production of a dangerous form of prostaglandin, which
actually promotes inflammation.
The second of the arthritis foods to avoid are foods
high in Omega-6 fatty acid which include safflower, corn
and sunflower oils, margarine and most other kinds of
plant oils. Also, avoid all fried food. Instead add
monounsaturated fats to your diet like extra-virgin
olive oil and canola oil.
We've talked about what arthritis foods to avoid - which seems like
just about everything. Now let's talk about what
actually benefits from.
For those with degenerative arthritis, adding Omega-3
rich food to the diet can be very effective in reducing
inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acid is found primarily in
fatty fish like salmon, herring, sardines, mackerel and
trout. One should have at least three to five servings
of fatty fish per week.
If unable to obtain and consume those quantities of
fish, supplement your diet with omega-3 capsules -
approximately 3 capsules per meal. Be sure to take
digestive enzymes along with the capsules. Another way
to consume omega-3 fatty acid is by taking flaxseed oil.
The health food benefits of consuming a tablespoon of
flaxseed oil mixed with two tablespoons of low-fat
cottage cheese in your daily diet go far beyond
There's an old natural food remedy that a quart of goats
milk daily to provide
relief for arthritis. Substituting goats milk
for cows milk in the diet is said to bring about
marvelous results. The goats milk available at most
supermarkets tastes little different from the cows milk
next to it.
Unless the food is culturally repulsive - like deep
fried locusts or some such disgusting food fare - tastes
can be changed. Although goats milk and fish may seem
nearly that repulsive to some, being able to live
pain-free without any medication can be the result.
