JOINT HEALTH: FOODS THAT HELP HEAL

Dr. A. Srinivasa Rao, Thursday, October 31, 2019

HOW FOOD IMPACTS JOINT HEALTH?

The food we eat gives our bodies the "information" and materials they need to function properly. If we don't get the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health declines. If we get too much food, or food that gives our bodies the wrong instructions, we can become overweight, undernourished, and at risk for the development of diseases and conditions, such as arthritis.

In short, what we eat is central to our health.?


WHAT FOODS TO EAT AND AVOID FOR JOINT HEALTH

If you suffer from joint discomfort in your knees, wrists or other parts of your body, you are by no means alone. Many people have dealt with discomfort in their joints and it is so prevalent in part because it can be caused by such a wide range of factors. From repetitive use of a joint to hereditary dysfunctions, that are a lot of ways people find themselves in discomfort.

The good news about joint discomfort is that many people have found naturally alleviation simply by eating the right foods – and avoiding others. The best foods for joint discomfort are those that have natural anti-inflammatory properties and that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids.

One common source of joint discomfort is inflammation, which can be caused by a variety of factors.

As such, one can help reduce inflammation, stiffness and swelling associated with some sources of inflammation and joint discomfort by eating foods that are high in Omega-3 and Vitamin D.

  • Citrus fruits
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Onions
  • Green tea
  • Ginger
  • Mushrooms
  • Pineapple
  • Papaya


WHAT TO AVOID WHEN YOU HAVE JOINT DISCOMFORT?

In some cases, a person’s diet may be an instigating factor in their joint discomfort. This is due to certain foods having inflammatory properties, which can acerbate joint discomfort symptoms. So, if you are experiencing joint discomfort or are at risk of it, consider avoiding these types of foods:

  • Fried foods

  • Grain-fed meats
  • Alcohol
  • Fast food
  • Flour (Maida)-based products
  • Foods with trans-saturated fats
