Effective Arthritis Diets To Eliminate Pain
by Jack Harmon
being fooled by their marketing capability.
But the truth is that, the same result can be achieved by taking our day to day
meals. For example, it is more rational to get the required amount of vitamins from
the regular food rather that going for those food supplements.
For that we have to know about the possible diet which can increase the risk of
getting arthritis and of course, the diet that helps to reduce the risk.
Osteoarthritis (OA), a major form of arthritis is aggravated by increase in the weight.
So we need to avoid or substantially reduce the amount we use to take.
These include foods that contain more saturated fatty acid, like butter, ghee (clarified
butter), animal protein (mainly red meat); dry calorie, like alcohol, excessive
carbohydrates, this include all the cakes, pastries, chocolate, junk food and all those
you can imagine.
Gouty arthritis is caused by the deposition of needle like Uric acid crystals in the joint
spaces. Intake of alcohol produces much amount of uric acid. The kidneys of the
alcoholic patients are again unable to excrete all the uric acid formed in the body.
Now we need to know about the 'good' foods which we should take to ensure we
have an effective arthritis diet to minimize pain
As per the recommendation of American Medical Association, the following
combination of diet is essential for the arthritic patients.
The diet should be rich in complex carbohydrates (foods that contain high amount of
fiber- whole grains, green leafy vegetables and fruits), low in protein (15% of the
total calorie intake protein should preferably come from lentils, white meat or
trimmed meat) and not more than 30% of the total calorie intake should come from
Fat (with ~10% from animal fats).
The recommended diet include vegetables (preferably green leafy vegetables,
cabbage, kale, parsley, broccoli, celery), tomato, banana, fruits (guava, pineapple-it
contains high amount of Bromelain, strawberry, fresh cherry, blue berry and other
red-blue berries), fruits that contain high amount of Vitamin C (lime, orange, red
cabbage, tangerine, mandarin, red bell pepper, potato), animal food, which contain
low fat (poultry, turkey-white meat), food that contain complex carbohydrate
(brown bread, cereals, rice, pasta, germinated pulses), foods that contain essential
fatty acids (salmon and tuna, other small fishes, nuts, pulses, flaxseed), Tofu (made
from soya bean and a better choice than red meat).
Foods that contain moderately high amount of Purine (an Amino Acid) are also
recommended. The list of food that will not raise the risk of gout include cauliflower,
asparagus, mushroom, spinach, peas, whole grain breads, some animal products
(chicken, turkey, duck, ham, kidney and Lima beans). Here it should be kept in mind
that all the food from animal source contains Purine and that is least likely to be
eliminated from our diet.
Foods to be avoided are- all carbonated drinks, coffee, cocoa and chocolate.

You may find a large amount of
information about diet and nutritional
supplements for different types of
arthritis in web, magazines and
books. They invariably state that
arthritis can be cured by taking their
diet, Arthritic diet- as they call it. But
these are mostly confusing.
The suggestions, mostly on the web,
are given by some companies who
are producing food supplements.
They have an understandable interest
to sell their products. Some of the
patients are actually buying these
exorbitantly priced food products
