The Debate Rages On As To The Effectiveness Of An Arthritis Diet

Aug 31, 2007
There is quite some amount of risk involved in not caring for your diet, which when not properly taken, can cause you many discomforts including having arthritis. With a proper arthritis diet, there is a better than even chance that you can keep yourself from becoming a victim of severe arthritis pain. Taking a diet that promotes arthritis is something that is an absolute no-no, though it is something that many people still continue taking. They should take care and avoid certain diets that are known to promote and even aggravate the arthritis condition.

Low Fiber Content Will Do You Good

If you persist with a diet that contains red meat, white flour as also dairy products and you also cannot refrain from eating junk food, don't be surprised that your arthritis condition gets worse. An arthritis diet would generally have low fiber content and good examples of such an arthritis diet food include commercially produced red meat, sugar as also milk. Taking such an arthritis diet will ensure that such low fiber content does not flow through your digestive tract and thus will not aggravate the arthritis condition.

However, if you insist on eating saturated fats, you can expect more arthritis pain and worsening of your condition. Such saturated fats should not form part of an arthritis diet and are typically found in animal foods and are a known cause behind increased joint inflammation, and is known to cause stiffness and swelling of the joints. In addition, your diet should not have much acidic content as high levels of acidity are known to be a major reason why a person has arthritis.

Any arthritis diet should preferably contain fruits of alkaline nature as also vegetables, raw seeds, peas, nuts, grain and finally, fish. Taking these foods and incorporating them in your arthritis diet should help reduce the acidic condition and ease the pain and anguish that arthritis would otherwise cause.

That is not to say that there are not many detractors of the benefits of arthritis diet and many doctors doubt the positive effects of such a course of action on alleviating the problematic condition. Still, there is no denying the fact that diet can contribute positively to a person's health and so, one would not be doing any harm in converting to an arthritis diet in a bid to improve one's arthritic condition because weight as well as nutrition is important factors in arthritis.

So, a diet of vitamins, minerals, supplements, and also herbal applications may, in the end, prove to be successful in treating an arthritic condition and could well be incorporated in a good arthritis diet.
