There are conditions that we have no control over and there is nothing that can be done. There are others where we are able to make certain changes before things get worse and prevent further damage. We will discuss something that can be done to help prevent one condition from getting worse.
There are quite a few things that contribute to the degeneration of the joints in the body. Many are lifestyle related and can include previous injuries, body weight, physical activity levels, and diet. Choosing the right foods to eat is one way to help the problem and the odds are it can improve it. A well-balanced approach for eating meals throughout the day is effective. Natural fruits and vegetables that have high vitamin and mineral levels are recommended. There are osteoarthritis diet foods to avoid. It is recommended by Osteo Relief Institute to have a list of these foods in your kitchen so they are clearly visible. Partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and sugar are the two things that should be passed on as much as possible.
The Avoid List:
- Sugar. ex: candy bars, canned fruits, and soda.
- White flower. ex: muffins, doughnuts, cookies, and white bread.
- White pasta. ex: noodles.
- Fried foods. ex: French fries, fried chicken, and mozzarella sticks.
Not eating the foods mentioned in the list above is a great place to start. The list can get bigger if you really want to make the right choices to help decrease the pain and improve the physical condition of the joints. What you choose to eat is just one of the many factors contributing to the condition getting better or not. Positive results happen when there is an effective treatment plan, which can include diet, natural joint lubrication treatments, and specific exercises.
