Arthritis Can Be Prevented and Reversed with Nutrition


This article is about the most common form of arthritis known as osteoarthritis. Please refer to the following articles for information on other kinds of arthritis:


Definition of Arthritis

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), arthritis can be defined as

Arthritis comprises more than 100 different rheumatic diseases and conditions, the most common of which is osteoarthritis. Other frequently occurring forms of arthritis include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and gout. Common symptoms include pain, aching, stiffness, and swelling in or around the joints. Some forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, can affect multiple organs and cause widespread symptoms. Although arthritis is more common among adults aged 65 years or older, people of all ages (including children) can be affected. Nearly two-thirds of people with arthritis are younger than age 65 years. Arthritis is more common among women (24.3%) than men (18.7%) in every age group, and it affects members of all racial and ethnic groups. Arthritis is also more common among adults who are obese than among those who are normal weight or underweight.


Conventional Care

Unfortunately, the conventional care is not very promising for people diagnosed with any kind of arthritis. Modern drug therapy does not cure or reverse arthritis. According to the CDC, there is no cure  for arthritis and the focus should be on pain management through medication.


Recommended Care

Several physicians in the United States have successfully helped their patients completely reverse most kinds of arthritis. Some of these physicians include Drs. Joel Fuhrman, MD and John McDougall, MD. Both physicians have written extensively on this condition, explaining the cause and proper care. The treatment approach proposed by these two doctors involves a nutritional change to a healthy diet made up of whole vegetables, fruits, legumes, with limited portions of whole grains, nuts and seeds. The nutritional protocol also involves the avoidance of animal products and highly processed foods (salt, sugar, flour). In addition, patients are expected to lead a clean lifestyle that involves regular exercise, regular sleep, little to no alcohol consumption, smoking avoidance, etc.
