Food Abstinence To Help Overcome Arthritis?
Hello. I want to ask, one of the ways to deal with arthritis is to take medicine that is recommended by the doctor. Are there foods that can help with arthritis? And also are there foods that should be avoided for arthritis sufferers?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically there are no specific foods that can directly and quickly overcome inflammation in the joints as anti-inflammatory drugs can reduce inflammation of the joints. However, there are several types of foods that have anti-inflammatory effects that might help even though there are no studies that show these foods can reduce joint inflammation effectively, including:
berries like strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry
vegetables like broccoli and vegetables with other green leaves
fruits such as avocados, grapes, peppers, cherries, tomatoes, oranges
extra virgin olive oil
Foods that you should avoid are processed foods such as canned foods, processed meats (such as sausages, smoked meats, burger / patty, etc.), foods that contain lots of sugar, foods with high trans fat (such as margarine), cooking oil and fried foods. You are also advised to avoid excessive alcohol consumption and smoking.
It's best to continue to discuss with your doctor about other things that you can do to help treat inflammation in your joints (depending on the cause of your arthritis, the doctor can also suggest doing certain sports or physiotherapy).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
