How Can You Fight Arthritis With Natural Foods?

Wendy from Wisconsin Writes:

I have been struggling with osteoarthritis for years. My doctor hasn’t put me on any medications yet and I really would like to avoid them. What can I do in my daily routine to help avoid the pain and discomfort?

Dear Wendy,

I am glad to hear that your doctor is working with you to help come up with a better plan! Arthritis comes in many different forms, yet the concept is the same. With arthritis, you are dealing with inflammation and it can occur as a result of many different factors. Our daily lifestyle is the main culprit in raising the inflammation throughout the body. The foods we eat, the liquids we drink, the air we breathe, the rest we get, the amount we move, and the stress that we manage will all determine the kind of health and the quality of life that we will experience. 

As we simply move each day, our body produces components called free radicals that can damage our body in various ways, cause tissue breakdown, and accelerate the aging process. We can fight this with powerful substances and nutrients called antioxidants. Antioxidants are found in the brightly colored fruits and vegetables. The challenge is that only 1.5 percent of Americans eat fruits and vegetables daily! We can drastically improve our health by simply adding these nutrients to our everyday diet. Here are some osteoarthritis busting foods to incorporate to your daily eating plan.

1.Oranges
Loaded with vitamin c, oranges are known to be power packed in their ability to fight free radicals. The high vitamin c in oranges has been shown to help reduce pain and inflammation. It also can help improve skin tone and support damaged cartilage.

2.Beets
A dark colored vegetable, beets are loaded with vitamins A and C. Most of the antioxidants are found in the red pigment and also contain magnesium, vitamin B9, and manganese. If you are constipated regularly, consider adding beets to your evening meal. Chronic constipation is linked to excess inflammation in the body.

3.Spinach
Spinach, with its deep green color, is loaded with plenty of antioxidants to support fighting the free radicals and supporting healthier joints. The pigments found in spinach are great for empowering your health.

4.Muscadine Grapes
The absolute powerhouse when it comes to antioxidants. With an ORAC value of 895, he muscadine grape surpasses almost every food with its free radical fighting capacity. Studies are being done currently on how powerful the actual grape is for a variety of health challenges. 

5.Tart Cherries
Loaded with strong antioxidants called anthocyanins, tart cherries are well known for their ability to fight the free radicals and reduce the pain and inflammation within the joints. Uric acid crystal formation can cause extreme arthritic conditions and the tart cherries have been shown to be helpful.

6.Broccoli
Broccoli is one of our top antioxidant foods that we have. Broccoli can help fight many of the negative effects of arthritis and help build the joints by lowering the inflammation. Some of the top components of broccoli are lutein, zeanthin, and beta-carotene. 

7.Walnuts
Nuts contain some great nutritional value in how they support lowering overall total body inflammation. With osteoarthritis, walnuts have a high concentration of omega-3 fats and can improve much of the inflammation within the joints.
