Nutrition and Diet Modifications

A healthy diet can affect a myriad of health issues: Cardiovascular health, high blood pressure, allergies, arthritis and more. Certain foods aggravate arthritis and other foods can calm arthritis symptoms down.

Recommended Foods to Eat

Fatty Fish
: Fatty fish varieties such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and trout are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory effects. Fish is also a good source of vitamin D, which can help prevent deficiency. Multiple studies have found that rheumatoid arthritis may be associated with low levels of vitamin D, which could contribute to symptoms. 

The American Heart Association recommends including at least two servings of fatty fish in your diet each week to take advantage of the beneficial anti-inflammatory properties.

Taking omega-3 supplements, such as our Ocean’s Finest Omega-3, should decrease joint pain intensity, morning stiffness and help patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Garlic: Garlic has numerous health benefits, one of which is an anti-inflammatory effect that may help decrease symptoms of arthritis.

    Garlic reduces the risk of osteoarthritis, likely thanks to garlic’s strong anti-inflammatory properties. Adding garlic to your diet could benefit both arthritis symptoms and overall health.

    Ginger may also help decrease the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Ginger and its components can block the production of substances that promote inflammation in the body.

    Turmeric: The turmeric plant grows in India and Indonesia and is related to the ginger family (it is a common ingredient in curries). Curcumin is a key chemical in turmeric. It can reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness related to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Taking supplements for joint pain, such as our Herbal Remedy Turmeric Curcumin should help reduce inflammation and joint pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

    Walnuts: Walnuts are nutrient-dense and loaded with compounds that may help reduce the inflammation associated with joint disease. Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to decrease the symptoms of arthritis.

    Berries: Berries have an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals which contributes their ability to decrease inflammation. Additionally, berries are loaded with quercetin. Quercetin has been found to block some of the inflammatory processes associated with arthritis.

    Spinach: Spinach is high in the antioxidant kaempferol, which has been shown to decrease the effects of the inflammatory agents associated with rheumatoid arthritis.

    Grapes: Grapes are nutrient-dense, high in antioxidants and possess anti-inflammatory properties.

    Olive Oil:Olive oil is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which may slow down the development of arthritis, reduce joint swelling, slow cartilage deterioration and decrease inflammation.

      Extra virgin olive oil also contains high levels of oleocanthal, which may have similar properties to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

      Tart Cherry Juice: This potent juice offers a wide array of nutrients and health benefits, and may even help reduce the symptoms of arthritis. Choose the unsweetened variety of tart cherry juice to make sure you don’t consume excess added sugar.

      The small sampling of foods listed above shows that diet can play a major role in decreasing joint pain associated with arthritis.

        Foods to Avoid are Those That Include the Following:

        Sugar: Processed sugars can prompt the release of cytokines, which act as inflammatory messengers in the body. The sugars that manufacturers add to sweetened beverages, including soda, sweet tea, flavored coffees, and some juice drinks, are the most likely to worsen inflammatory conditions.

        Saturated Fat: Foods high in saturated fat, such as pizza and red meat, can cause inflammation.

        Refined Carbohydrates:Refined carbs, such as white rice, potato chips, white bread accelerate the production of advanced glycation end (AGE) oxidants. This may stimulate inflammation in the body.

        Corn Oil: Is a common ingredient in our food because it’s cheap. Corn oil contains omega-6 fatty acids, not the good omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-6 has been tied to weight gain and joint inflammation. Other oils with the same omega-6 problems are made from sunflowers, safflowers, and soybeans.

        Salt: Is another no-no. Salt causes cells to retain water. Salt will inflate and enflame. Also, salt boosts blood pressure. Arthritis patients who are taking steroids for treatment find that salt stays longer in their bodies, increasing its impact on their health.

        Alcohol: Can be dangerous when mixed with most prescription drugs. Also, alcohol is loaded with sugar. Try to minimize alcohol intake while you are trying to manage arthritis and joint pain.

          Exercise and Arthritis. Your Best Options.

          Before starting any exercise program, especially if you are deconditioned, it is best to check with your doctor for any recommendations or limitations.

          Exercise helps ease arthritis pain and stiffness. Exercise is crucial for people with arthritis. It increases strength and flexibility, reduces joint pain, and helps combat fatigue. Even moderate exercise can help you ease your pain and also help you maintain a healthy weight. 

          Exercise can help you improve your health without doing more damage to your joints. Exercise can improve your balance, help you control your weight, help you maintain bone strength, strengthen the muscles around your joints, help you sleep better plus helps you become more active, improving the quality of your life!

          Exercise won’t reverse the damage from arthritis that's already done. But it helps prevent arthritis from getting worse. A reason for exercising with arthritis pain is to build muscles. Muscles surround the joint, and when muscles are bigger and stronger, the joint is more protected. 

          Exercises for Arthritis

          Your Warm-Up

          Apply heat. Heat can relax your joints and muscles and relieve any pain you have before you get started with your workout. Warm towels, hot packs or a warm shower for about 20 minutes should get you going.

          Move slow and easy at to warm up. Begin with range-of-motion exercises for five to 10 minutes before you move on to strengthening or aerobic exercises.

          Exercise with slow and easy movements. If you feel pain, take a break. Slow down if you notice swelling or redness in your joints.

          Range-of-Motion Exercises

          These exercises relieve stiffness and increase your ability to move your joints through their full range of motion. These exercises might include movements such as raising your arms over your head or rolling your shoulders forward and backward. This simple type of stretching/exercise can be done daily.

          Strengthening Exercises

          These exercises help you build strong muscles that help support and protect your joints. Weight training is an example of a strengthening exercise that can help you maintain or increase your muscle strength. Rest a day between your strength training workouts and take an extra day or two if your joints are painful.

          When starting a strength-training program, a three-day-a-week program is suggested.

          Aerobic Exercise

          Aerobic type exercises help with your overall fitness. It’s good for the heart, helps control your weight and gives you more energy.

          Some low-impact aerobic exercises that are easier on your joints include walking, bicycling, and swimming. Try to work your way up to 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week. You can split that time into 10-minute sessions if that's easier on your body.

          Other Forms of Exercise

          Yoga or Tai Chi classes can help you improve balance and coordination, good for stretching and flexibility, plus it helps you relax. Let your instructor know about your arthritis and avoid positions or movements that will cause you pain.

          Amazon Prime has a variety of free Yoga and Tai Chi classes that can be streamed on your TV. It’s a great way to start to get accustomed to the movements. 

          Look for exercise programs in your area for people with arthritis. Some hospitals, YMCA’s, JCC’s, park and recreation departments and health clubs offer special programs for people with arthritis. It’s also a fun way to exercise and a way to meet new friends!

          Ice Afterward. Apply ice to your joints for up to 20 minutes as needed after exercising, especially if you feel your joints are swelling.
