LET’S USE FOOD TO RECLAIM OUR WELLNESS

We as arthritic warriors are always interested in alternative treatments to relieve our enervating condition. My interest in dietary interventions has always been spiraling upwards!  I genuinely believe that one should promulgate diet therapy for Arthritic patients alongside the regular DMARDs and anti-TNFs that are provided for effective management.

The debate that food can cause or relieve arthritis isn’t new. More recently, some health writers have insisted that arthritics should eat or not eat specific foods.

A great deal of discussion as to whether foods ameliorate or perpetuate arthritis, or have any effect at all is hot topic for discussions at forums, support groups.

But through the years I have seen there is a wealth of data supporting the positive impact of food in assisting to decrease or atleast maintain the disease activity. I have been reading a lot and understand the positive effects of nutrients on our immunity and inflammation levels.

We should work to educate and capacitate ourselves with the benefits of eating more vegetarian/vegan diets, eliminate potentially allergic food components, and introduce more poly unsaturated fatty acid/oleic acid/synbiotics in our diet plans. Considering that these foods are not as expensive as any regular therapeutics, they can be easily incorporated for people from any economical background. Personally over the years I have noticed spices like turmeric, ginger, fresh fruits and vegetables and legumes especially the green ones do make me feel better as compared to when I eat processed or high salt, animal products,

A better patient compliance is very crucial for effective care and management of Arthritis.

I will conclude by saying that it may not cure the patients; however, an effective incorporation of these food items in our daily food plan will help to reduce the disease activity, delay disease progression, and reduce joint damage, and eventually a decreased dose of drugs administered for therapeutic treatment of patients.

Will share some interesting food diet recipes, tips, tricks and inspiration which are tried and tested by myself and shared by others… so watch out for the upcoming articles for a healthier, happier you!

Remember: True healthcare reform starts in your kitchen, not in any country’s capital!
