What’s wrong with diary products or meat? I won’t be a vegetarian!

We all heard about how important diet is for a person’s health. Well, only few people take its importance for serious and start eating healthy. Like many other life aspects, a person diet needs to be balanced and be nourishing and not harmful to the body.
Eating meat or diary products is not wrong when combined with vegetables, fruits and the necessary amount of water per day. However if used inappropriate, diary products can have side effects like diarrhea, stomach cramps and bloating, etc. Meat can also be harmful when used in big quantities or combined with fast food. One of the major concerns when it comes to the diet is nowadays the frequent occurrence of rheumatoid arthritis (and/or osteoporosis) that has neither a known cause nor a known treatment. It is generally believed that factors like bad eating habits, smoking and stress increase the risks of being positive to this disease.
Even if there is no widely accepted cure for the rheumatoid arthritis, there are many alternative helpful methods that can assist you keeping arthritis joint pain under control. The popular herbal treatments, a proper diet, and hydrotherapy will always be a great help for keeping in shape despite the chronically disease.
A good diet plan is beneficial not only for rheumatoid arthritis treatment, but also for reducing high blood pressure and cardiovascular problems. Has your diet been ‘reformed’ by the American fast food diet, than you will need to correct it for increasing your wellness. A right rheumatoid arthritis diet will help you remove fatigue, stiff joints and any kind of puffiness. And of course, it will contribute to your healthiness.
The rheumatoid arthritis diet should never contain more than 2000 calories with vegetables, proteins and fruits being the base of it. Basically, this diet relates to the vegetarian diet where nuts, raw seeds, fish, dry fruits, grains are very important. The plus side of this food is that it is easily digested and has no time to turn into toxic substances. Also, the ‘arthritis friendly’ diet will help people maintain their weight and have tension decrease because of the fact no overeating problems are present. Because of the fact that the stomach is not overworking and overloaded anymore, the stress amount is loosen up as well and there are only few poisons left in your organism that might affect you negatively.
The rheumatoid arthritis diet can be very beneficial not only for rheumatoid arthritis treatment, but also for people that want to have a healthy diet and minimize the risks of getting a junk food disease like rheumatoid arthritis or suffer of high blood pressure and the generally feared stress.

Sugar will definitely increase inflammation and worse than sugar is corn syrup which is hidden almost all processed foods. To avoid sugar you must avoid processed foods.

I wrote a page on inflammatory foods ( http://www.livingwithrheumatoidarthritis.com/... ) this contains a list of obvious foods to avoid.

There may be other foods specific to your body that are causing inflammation and I suggest that the best way to learn which foods cause you trouble is to keep a diary of everything that you eat each day, along with other notes about the day including stress, how you are sleeping, what you put on your body, any cleaners that you have used.

Over a period of time you will see common links to the flares you suffer and you can then make the appropriate changes.

No one can tell you exactly what is causing you to suffer but the list of inflammatory foods are common for most of the population, basically they are foods that either are difficult for the body to digest or provide little nutrition to the body.

Another clue about food is...food should provide the body with energy. If, after you eat you are more tired than before the meal the food you have eaten is likely taking more energy to digest than it is supplying your body.

Of course there is the odd exception to this rule, for example Turkey.

Food is not the only thing that confuses the immune system. Stress is also a leading cause of pain and one must learn to control stress in order to allow the body to heal itself.

Hello everyone, thought I'd join the discussion. You know, everyone HAS to eat and it seems to me that people are missing out on good healthy foods just because of an autoimmune dis-ease. I know of a new scientific discovery that's helping people globally get their bodies back in optimal working condition because it gives the body it's OWN ability to HEAL and REGENERATE itself, NATURALLY. The body knows NO dis-ease and it's really very simple science, you give your body what it needs (the right fuel) and it can do anything.
Once it's back in this good state, the things you think you are unable to enjoy like strawberries will tell a different story. I USED to be allergic to watermelon and green apples but not any more, I eat those two things like CRAZY now! My soulmate USED to be intensely allergic to tomatoes, bannanas and cat hair but guess what, not anymore! And I have two friends, one who's entire body was stricken with severe rheumatoid arthritis so bad that he wore out chairs and the other had arthritis in her hands so bad that she didn't rest thru a full night of sleep for 10 years without waking up crying in the middle of the night. My soulmate and I introduced this scientific discovery to them both and now they do what we do and spread the word because it's ONLY word-of-mouth. Both of them by the way are in such great shape healthwise that Eric, the one that wore out chairs walks around his mobile home community and is up on ladders painting homes which people can't believe and Paula, the one with arthritis in her hands now sleeps really good EVERY night and travels with her husband state to state.
Tell me the body isn't remarkable given the right nutririon. GOD is GREAT.
are you from any religious group they used to sell hope to poor sufferers for thousansd of years be geniune like me i give truth cost nothing and it works see my comments and i would love someone to come forward and prove me wrong

My daughter has Psoriasis and watches her diet carefully. To avoid any flare-ups, she must abstain from any nightshade plants such as tomatoes, although once in awhile she can have one or two cherry tomatoes in a salad without effect. No dairy and gluten free only - no wheat, only rice based pasta and breads. She can have eggs, although it depends on the individual. Even cosmetics must be gluten free. I've also discovered I have a mild case of Psoriasis. Now that I'm in my 60s, I've recently began having terrible joint pains. I also pulled a muscle in my back recently and it's taking very long to heal. I suspect I have RA in my spine/back. It probably hasn't helped that I injured my back over the course of my life. The most recent injury was 6 years ago. We have a small boat and my husband was trying maneuver the boat into the dock one day. He suddenly put the gears into reverse and I flew from one end of the boat to the other end! Upon landing, my lower back slammed against the hard plastic seat. I actually saw stars, that's how excruciatingly painful it was. We went back to our campsite and I immediately put applied an ice pack and took an Aleve tablet for the pain. I should have went to the ER, but I seemed to be able to move around fairly well. Anyway, I went to the doctor when we got back and he told me I probably broke my tail bone. He said they can't really do anything for it and it heals on its own. He said it was up to me if I wanted to have an X-ray. I didn't, although I should have, and he should have encouraged me to. He also said that considering I'm in my 60s and injured my back, that Arthritis usually settles in these kinds of injuries later on. I think that's what is happening now. As soon as my doctor comes back from vacation, I'm going in for an X-ray to see if I have any damage. I know I'm not a candidate for prescription drugs. I typically have terrible side effects. I couldn't even take the 2 Aleve every 12 hours that he recommended. I can tolerate 1 every 12 hours though. Bending seems to be difficult for me and this upsets me because I've always prided myself in being active and mobile. Guess I have to face the fact that I may no longer be able to do the things I've always enjoyed. Whoever said your older years are your golden years, may be true for some, but it isn't for others.

Good luck to you all and I wish you well.

I have had RA, CLL,for about 15 years. Although it runs in my family (grandparents and Dad's side), I have found certain foods cause severe flare ups and I am still learning. Vinegar, grape juice or products, and possibly citric acid for lemons and oranges. They are difficult to avoid because they in everything.

But I have found a miracle botanical that has helped me avoid long 24 hour shoulder, knee, ankle, wrist and any other soft tissue attacks. It is commonly called "cat's claw" or uncara tomatosa from the rain forests of Peru. It literally has been a life saver, and is commonly found by searching under those names on the internet. Dr.'s A-Z is one brand I use, but there are quite a few others. I have shared this with quite a few other people, and virtually all of them have gotten great relief from the affliction. At least, I can almost live a normal life, and sleep all night without waking up in pain shock...some episodes were so bad that I almost couldn't maintain consciousness. I hope someone will benefit from this...it is definitely worth a try! Truly a gift from God.

I find that strawberries play havoc with me, and my father also suffered the same effect. I ate strawberries last night - just a few - and today my hands and feet are agony. My father used to say that he had similar effects if he ate tomatoes more than once a week, and also red peppers. Perhaps its something to do with the natural colouring....
I have been in pain, like a burning sensation in all my joints for the past two days. I tried to figure out what I have been eating different. I read your post and guess what? The only thing different is strawberries and I have been eating a truckload of them since last Friday. Boo hoo I love them, but I don't love the pain. Thanks for your post.

I was 36 years old and my 2nd child was one year old when I noticed one of my fingers was inflamed, swollen. The swelling wouldn't subside. Tests showed RA (Rheumatoid arthritis). Then progressively other joints started to get affected and I had much pain, dressing myself was very painful. I would ring my mother in tears not knowing what was happening to my body. I tried numerous medicines nothing worked. Finally, the rheumatologist suggested i try natural medicines and suggested NewLife Clinic, i immediately ordered their Rheumatoid Arthritis Herbal formula and start on the 3 months treatment plan, the treatment is totally incredible, i had a total decline of symptoms with this treatment, the pains, stiffness, swelling, body weakness and skin redness has subsided. Visit NewLife Clinic website www. newlifeherbalclinic. com or email info@ newlifeherbalclinic. com. Incredible!
