Hey, guys. Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I’m going to share with you the topnatural treatments for arthritis. Arthritis is something that affects a lot of people.Especially rheumatoid arthritis is really autoimmune in nature and actually starts inyour gut, which is surprising to a lot of people. So I’m going to really share withyou these natural arthritis treatments that are effective in terms of diet and supplementsand the things you want to stay away from. The first thing I want to talk about is thearthritis diet you should be following, is it should be antiinflammatory. Here are thetop foods you should be consuming. Number
one, omega3 rich foods. Omega3 fatty acidsare going to reduce inflammation. Wildcaught salmon or wildcaught fish is your numberone food of choice. After that, for omega3 fats, things like grassfed beef, along withflaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts. So again, you can do a healthy snack like some walnutsand raisins, wildcaught salmon for dinner, put some flax or chia seeds in a morning superfood shake, but get those omega3 fatty acids. The second thing you want to do dietwiseis consume foods that are high in sulfur, and sulfur contains something called a formof MSM that reduces joint inflammation and helps rebuilding your tissues. The top foodsthat are high in sulfur are going to be onions,
garlic, asparagus, and cabbage. So you cando sautï¿½ed cabbage with some garlic, do some onions in with some grassfed burger,of course, asparagus as a side dish or any sort of cabbage or coleslaw or sauerkraut,even better, but get those sulfurrich foods. They help reduce arthritis symptoms. The next thing you want to be adding in isbone broth. Bone broth is loaded with a form of collagen that contains the amino acidsproline and glycine, and both proline and glycine help rebuild tissues. So especiallyif you have any type of degeneration or you have any sort of, not just inflammation, butdegeneration of the joint, we know that bone
broth works great. So again, that’s goingto be making a homemade bone broth soup is great for healing your joints. Last, but not least, lots of fruits and veggies.Fruits and veggies are packed with enzymes and antiinflammatory compounds. Some of thebest include papaya, which contains papain, pineapple which contains bromelain, and othersort of raw fruits and vegetables are fantastic. That should make up the bulk of your diet.It should be organic omega3rich meats, healthy vegetables, healthy fruits, and some nutsand seeds like flax, chia, and walnuts. Now, here’s what you want to stay away from.Number one is excess sugar. Excess sugar causes
inflammation. Also hydrogenated oils, soybeanoil, cottonseed oil, even canola oil, those are inflammatory oils. Stay away from those.Also certain grains like gluten. Consuming conventional grains, flour products, and wheatproducts will cause joint inflammation and make arthritis worse. So for that reason,on your arthritis diet, you want to stay completely away from those foods if you want to starthealing arthritis. One other sort of food, you can look this up, if you’re a very sensitiveperson, you have severe autoimmune disease, sometimes nightshade vegetables will contributeto arthritis symptoms as well. Now, here are the best supplements in thenatural treatment of arthritis. Number one
is a fish oil supplement. I recommend 1,000milligrams a day of a highquality fish oil. Number two, turmeric. Doing about 1,000 milligramsa day of turmeric or curcumin, it’s a very powerful anti inflammatory herb. Now, youcan take turmeric and sprinkle that on your food, and that works great as well. But actually,taking it as a supplement can be very effective in the natural treatment of arthritis. Number three super food or super supplementyou should be using is actually proteolytic enzymes. Proteolytic enzymes like bromelain,these are something that you take on an empty stomach, are probably, along with fish oil,the most effective thing you can do to get
When Gluten Gets You Down
Wheat allergy, gluten intolerance, celiacdisease â€” one and the same, right? Well, no, not really. Although people sometimesuse the terms interchangeably, they are different and may require different treatments and care.I’m Shelby Cullinan and this is a health feature. The only way to find out if you are glutensensitiveis to be tested, says David Winter, the chief al officer, president and chairmanof the board of Baylor Health Care’s HealthTexas Provider Network. You must be on a diet thatincludes gluten, or the test results may not be valid because the gluten makes your bloodproduce the antibodies you’re being tested for.
quot;Gluten allergy can be detected in childrenand adults and in fact, some children never diagnosed and go on into adulthood beforethe diagnosis is finally ascertained. So, if you have bloating, cramping, changes inbowel movements, if you have trouble losing weight, that can be a sign of celiac diseasefrom gluten allergy and you have to be tested to find out about that. Now, if you are tested,if you have gluten allergy, you must avoid foods with gluten in it that’s a proteinthat’s found in wheat, rye and barley.quot; A wheat allergy can cause severe, sometimesdeadly symptoms that must be treated immediately with medications like adrenalin and antihistamines.People who have a wheat allergy must avoid
not only gluten but wheat in any form. Celiacdisease is a relatively common autoimmune disorder, according to the National Instituteof Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. People with celiac disease cannot tolerategluten, which can be found not only in wheat but in other grains like rye and barley. Glutensensitivity is very similar to celiac disease in symptoms, which often improve on a glutenfreediet. Wondering what you can eat on a glutenfreediet? Winter expands on some options. quot;So, a lot of breads are made without wheat,rye or barley. Here’s one. Some of these are pretty tasty. Some macaroni and cheese ismade without wheat, most pasta does have wheat
in it. But to get one without wheat, you’reperfectly fine. Here’s a pasta dish with chicken, this works well for people who have glutensensitivity. Of course, any vegetable or fruit is glutenfree, there’s no wheat or barleyin that. Mushrooms are fine. Kale chips work. Here’s some corn chips, no wheat, barley orrye there, those are fine to take. A glutenfree diet’s a fine diet to be on. You don’t missanything with that, you can have a good nutritional diet without that. You just limit your choices. Remember, that if you must avoid wheat, thatcould extend beyond food. Wheat may also be found in products like children’s play doughand wheat gluten is sometimes used in medications
or cosmetics like lipstick. Anyone with awheat allergy must avoid all such products. Make sure you ask your for more information.
