Hey, guys. Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural medicine and founder of DrAxe. In this tutorial, I’m going to share with you the top natural treatments for arthritis. Arthritis is something that affects a lot of people. Especially rheumatoid arthritis is really autoimmune in nature and actually starts in your gut, which is surprising to a lot of people. So I’m going to really share with you these natural arthritis treatments that are effective in terms of diet and supplements and the things you want to stay away from. The first thing I want to talk about is the arthritis diet you should be following, is.
It should be antiinflammatory. Here are the top foods you should be consuming. Number one, omega3 rich foods. Omega3 fatty acids are going to reduce inflammation. Wildcaught salmon or wildcaught fish is your number one food of choice. After that, for omega3 fats, things like grassfed beef, along with flaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts. So again, you can do a healthy snack like some walnuts and raisins, wildcaught salmon for dinner, put some flax or chia seeds in a morning super food shake, but get those omega3 fatty acids. The second thing you want to do dietwise is consume foods that are high in sulfur,.
And sulfur contains something called a form of MSM that reduces joint inflammation and helps rebuilding your tissues. The top foods that are high in sulfur are going to be onions, garlic, asparagus, and cabbage. So you can do sauted 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 is bone broth. Bone broth is loaded with a form.

Of collagen that contains the amino acids proline and glycine, and both proline and glycine help rebuild tissues. So especially if you have any type of degeneration or you have any sort of, not just inflammation, but degeneration of the joint, we know that bone broth works great. So again, that’s going to 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 the best include papaya, which contains papain,.
Pineapple which contains bromelain, and other sort 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 nuts and 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, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, even canola oil, those are inflammatory oils. Stay away from those. Also certain grains like gluten. Consuming conventional grains, flour products, and wheat products 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 start healing arthritis. One other sort of food, you can look this up, if you’re a very sensitive person, you have severe autoimmune disease, sometimes nightshade vegetables will contribute to arthritis symptoms as well. Now, here are the best supplements in the natural treatment of arthritis. Number one is a fish oil supplement. I recommend 1,000 milligrams a day of a highquality fish oil. Number two, turmeric. Doing about 1,000 milligrams a day of turmeric or curcumin, it’s a very.
Powerful anti inflammatory herb. Now, you can 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 supplement you 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 immediate relief from arthritis. Number four, glucosamine. Glucosamine chondroitin, or glucosamine sulfate, is very effective.
At actually giving your body sort of the nutrients and things it needs for rebuilding healthy joints. And last but not least, MSM. MSM is a form of sulfur you can take in supplement form that’s also effective. So, guys, don’t forget those top foods, the top foods to stay away from, as well as the best supplements in the natural treatment of arthritis.
