Diet for arthritis
Diet for arthritis is very important, but the correct nutrition, which will be discussed in this article, can surprise you. All you need is to give up all Solanaceae, and your problems with joints will be solved
What can not be used for arthritis?
Adhering to a specific diet and not including in your diet foods that are banned, you can significantly alleviate the symptoms of the disease: reduce inflammation and pain, reduce swelling, get rid of increased body weight.
When arthritis can not be used:
Strong tea and coffee. Refuse to take them because the overabundance of caffeine in the body leads to the washing away of calcium from the bones. This provokes the development of arthritis and aggravates its course.
Meat dishes. The fact is that the composition of products of animal origin includes arachidonic acid. Getting into the human body, it breaks down into eicosanoids. It is these biologically active substances that cause inflammation of the joints, which leads to arthritis.
Alcohol. The use of alcoholic drinks leads to the fact that active substances such as adrenaline and dopamine come into the human blood. They, aggravate the course of the disease, increasing inflammation in the tissues of the joint. At the same time the level of potassium in the blood decreases, which leads to the formation of edema. The fluid in the periarticular bag begins to come, the pressure inside it begins to increase. If there was an alcohol intoxication, then the thinning of the cartilaginous tissue of the joint will necessarily occur. It is also dangerous to drink alcohol along with medicines, for example, analgesics.
Chocolate. These products contain concentrated sugar, which will contribute to the accumulation of excess weight. This will negatively affect the condition of the joints, contributing to their deformation.
Salt. These white crystals lead to the deposition of salts in the joints, contribute to a decrease in bone mass, increase edema, the development of inflammation and increased pain.
French fries, chips, crackers, margarine, cakes. All these products contain trans fats, which will lead to an increase in body weight, will contribute to the violation of blood circulation, which means that the joints suffer from a shortage of nutrients, which will aggravate the course of arthritis.
Yolk eggs, butter, cod liver, eggplant tomatoes, sour cream, etc. It will help that there is a risk of developing gout, and hence an attack of gouty arthritis.
In general, products that are banned in people with arthritis are few. All of them are replaceable, and the person will not experience severe discomfort, going on a diet. Moreover, it is strictly necessary to adhere to it only in those days when the disease is in an aggravation stage. In periods of remission, the diet is not so strict.
What should I use for arthritis?
There are whole groups of products that must necessarily be used by a patient with arthritis.
But from them it is possible to isolate the eight most useful, they contain the maximum amount of useful substances that will help the inflamed joint to return to normal:
Salmon. This fish is the champion in the content of omega – 3 acids. They are necessary for the joints in order to remove inflammation in them. The most useful is this fish, which is caught in the seas, the one that grew in the wild. In the artificially grown fish, the content of omega-3 is much less. Also salmon contains vitamin D3, for bones it is simply irreplaceable.
Almond, which contains a lot of vitamin E. Its regular intake into the body contributes to the fact that the outer membrane of the articular bags will be strengthened. This will protect the joint from destruction by free radicals. If a person with arthritis has an allergy to this nut, then it can always be replaced with sunflower seeds or peanuts. An important vitamin is also in them, but in slightly reduced doses.
Papaya. Its advantage lies in the fact that it contains just a huge amount of vitamin C. According to the latest research, it influences both the occurrence and the rate of development of arthritis. It is in vain to believe that this vitamin is abundant in oranges and lemons, in papaya it is twice as large. In addition, this exotic fruit contains beta-carotene, which is useful for joint health.
Apples that contribute to the production of collagen. It is he who forms the basis of the cartilaginous tissue of the joint, which is destroyed by arthritis. In order to make up for his loss, it is necessary to eat at least one fruit that is available to almost everyone. Naturally, there is no collagen in apples, but they contain quercetin, which actively participates in its formation. But in order for the useful ingredient to enter the body in full, you need the apple does not peel and do not heat.
Black beans are preferable to other varieties when it comes to joints. Black beans contain more antioxidants, especially those struggling with free radical anthocyanins, which inhibit the production of cyclooxygenase (cox-2), the enzyme responsible for inflammation. Also, black beans are filled with manganese, an indispensable mineral for the health of joints.
Cabbage leaves. This product is rich in calcium, which is necessary for bones. Most people believe that to get the necessary dose of this trace element you need to drink milk. In fact, it can be replaced with cabbage, which for patients with arthritis will be in priority. After all, it also contains copper (which is needed to form collagen), as well as manganese (which promotes the production of enzymes for the restoration of cartilaginous tissue). Using cabbage, even in large quantities, you can not worry about the deposition of harmful cholesterol or weight gain.
Broccoli is a close relative of leafy cabbage. They are especially useful for older people. The level of sulforaphane (a component responsible for combating radicals that destroy cartilage and bone tissue) in the blood of which is low. In addition, eating broccoli, a person saturates the body with calcium, vitamins A and C.
Ginger will remove puffiness and pain. It suppresses the production of COX-2 enzymes, which cause inflammation of the joints. The action of ginger is akin to that of NSAIDs. Of course, he is not so strong, but he does not give any side effects.
Consuming these products, you can help the body cope with arthritis.
But there are general recommendations, which boil down to the following:
On the table must be present vegetables and fruits. But exclude the need for tomatoes and onions green.
Consuming should be kefir, fermented baked milk, cottage cheese – all sour-milk products, but not milk.
Fruit, but only before consulting with the doctor. This is due to the fact that the acid contained in some of them can negatively affect the state of the stomach during the intake of NSAIDs.
Of meat, you should consume only that which does not contain a lot of fat. For example, rabbit, chicken (only boiled chicken, excluding broth, once in 2-3 days).
Necessarily on the table of a person who is sick with arthritis, there must be fish.

Diet Norman Childers: a diet without solanaceous
Pasolennye are representatives of the family Solanaceae, which includes more than 90 genera and 2000 species. You can not guess, but tobacco is also of this kind. In fact, they smoked quite a long time, for centuries, and no one had expected earlier about the dangers of smoking. Also to this family are the following crops and products: tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and all kinds of pepper, but not black pepper – it is quite from other species. If you recall the famous Mexican tomatoes, then they are very common in Central and South America.
There is a very interesting story, how and why this family is called that way. It went from ancient Rome. In ancient Rome from the family of the nightshade during the war or during the palace coups did poisons. And if you look at the exact translation from English, it literally translates as "night shadows." So, the Romans made poison out of them – and the man began to plunge into darkness and die long and painfully.
Here are a few examples. Many poisonous plants, such as belladonna with black berries of petunia, addictive tobacco, juicy vegetables, medicines such as scoplonin, which is a part of tablets, from the fact that you do not sleep at night, remember that they are not given to children yet.
What problems arise in connection with the nightshade?
For a very long time people realized why they die cattle and dogs. It has long been the story that you do not need to eat tomatoes and potatoes, and old people still believe that they can not be eaten. If you remember the farmers, they sent their children for generations to pick it up like weeds. And tomatoes used to have the name "cancerous apples". And if you look at tobacco, then everything is clear. We learned about the harm recently and to prohibit it also became recently.
What Norman Childers offers people
People start to think only of how dangerous plants of this kind are. Almost all people now eat such food as potatoes, tomatoes and eggplant. And the potato has already won the title of earthen bread in Russia. Peppers, aubergines – we eat all this every day and do not complain.
If we take the scientific community, then the research began only in the 50-ies of the XX century, as soon as the following was revealed. One day the doctor walks in and says that perhaps the colon has become inflamed because the person ate the red pepper. It is a pity that the operation could not be avoided then, but later, when a person stopped using these products in the daily diet, his state of health improved dramatically.
A lot of time passed, but the experiment was not forgotten. He gave too good results, and it was decided to continue the experiment with such a diet for arthritis and other joint diseases, but on others. After all, everyone wants to cure or improve their health. Not so long ago, announcements were given, and it took quite a bit of time – and a lot of reviews came, after which the authors of the announcement sent out a detailed description of the diets to all those who wrote the reviews and afterwards the waiting time of the results came. And they did not keep themselves waiting. The experiment was successful with 72%, that is, seventy-two percent of people in a hundred recovered and began to feel much better. Agree, this is a good result. After that, I and my colleagues wrote a book about this.
All this ended very well, we even opened a help center that helps to eat right. We almost got rid of such a disease as arthritis. Now we publish books and send out a lot of letters with precise instructions. We have only four thousand three hundred subscribers, to whom we send letters every month.
What should people do that refuse the nightshade?
Refusing from solanaceous is a difficult matter. But this step is the main thing in proper nutrition for arthritis, arthrosis, osteoarthrosis, etc. To do this, very much needs to be done, this must be very desired. There must be sufficient motivation. For example, the desire to be cured of what does not hurt yet is difficult to understand, but it is very necessary. If you look at an ordinary person, then he eats the nightshade. But everything is much worse when we see a smoking person. Paslin can cause addiction, and this we must fear, as never before. The more you eat them, the worse. Let's look again at the smoker. The more he smokes, the more his lungs turn into a black hole, which soon absorbs the whole body.
Look at the grandfathers and grandmothers you know or just people who are not feeling well. What are they eating? Yes, you guessed it, they eat nightshade. In our century – a century that simply flooded the nightshade, in an age in which we will simply starve without them. Look, why children have a headache, why do the children just get sick, because they have a young body, but why do they know tablets since childhood? It's all about food: potatoes, pizza and more. You just scared for your children.
A lot of research is difficult. When you eat these products, they do not give you immediate awareness. Everything is saved for years, decades. And it is not clear when and on what day all this will come up. If a person who smokes has cancer, then we can say that another person can also have cancer.
All this has long been proven by statistics. But what about the man who eats tomatoes? Nothing. Yes, over time it will not matter, but another person who also ate tomatoes, too, can be all right. All plants of this type contain elements very similar to elements in drugs. From this it can be concluded that all of them can cause dependence in a person, and he may not understand at all. Suffice it to recall the example of a cigarette.
All that can be said with great accuracy and certainty is that the nightshade causes illness and refusing them will help you to become healthy. This conclusion is not made by us, it is done by statistics based on forty-five years of experience and materials.

Arthritis is an inflammatory disease of the joint. With arthritis, you will feel pain in the joints, especially when walking. Sometimes the skin above the aching joint begins to turn red and a fever appears. If one joint is inflamed, then the disease is called monoarthritis, and if several joints are involved in the process, then – polyarthritis.
Arthritis of the knee joint is an inflammation of the intra- and periarticular regions of one or both knees. Another name for pathology – chasing or gonarthrosis (from the Greek gony – "knee"). The statistics of the incidence of knee arthritis is as follows: approximately half (from 35 to 52%) of people.
Arthritis of the hands is an inflammatory process, localized in the corresponding joints. Arthritis of the hands and fingers is a common disease. According to the latest data, this disease affects every seventh inhabitant of the planet. In most cases, women suffer.

In some types of arthritis, patients suffer not only joints, but also internal organs – the heart, kidneys, liver. Often arthritis leads to disability. Therefore, it is so important at the first signs of the disease to seek help from a specialist.
Quite often, chondroprotectors are prescribed to fight arthritis (especially at the initial stage), – drugs that protect the cartilaginous tissue that take courses. One of the most effective chondroprotectors is glucosamine. It is a part of almost all drugs from arthritis. However, not all forms of glucosamine are equally useful. For example.
Arthritis is manifested against a background of various injuries or destabilization of metabolic processes (say, gout). Arthritis can be a part of some other ailments (for example, systemic inflammatory diseases, problems with connective tissue or vasculitis and much more).
