1) Taking Arthmender -
Arthmender releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the
molecular level to promote
joint health and healthy inflammation response.
2) Increasing Omega-3 Intake -
Omega-3 essential fatty acids can dramatically reduce inflammation.
Increase your intake of Omega-3 with fish oil, ground flax seed,
minimal-mercury tuna, wild-caught salmon, and sprouted walnuts.
3) Decreasing Omega-6 Intake -
Omega-6 essential fatty acids can increase inflammation. Decrease your
intake of polyunsaturated oils in your diet that contain Omega-6 such
as sunflower, safflower, soybean, and corn oils.
4) Increasing Monounsaturated
Fats Intake - Olive oil is a healthy monounsaturated oil that is used
in the Mediterranean diet (a diet praised for its anti-inflammatory
effects on the body). Monounsaturated fats can also be found in raw
almonds, cashews, and avocados.
5) Increasing Fiber Consumption
- A low-fiber diet can contribute to systemic inflammation. Liberally
add ground flax seed (which is also high in omega-3 fatty acids) to
many of your favorite recipes, smoothies, shakes, and salads. Also try
coconut flour which is 58% fiber!
6) Eating Fruits Rich in Vitamin
C - These fruits help relieve inflammation. Choose blueberries,
blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, peaches, mango,
cantaloupe melon, and anti-inflammatory fruits like apples. However,
try to moderate your intake of citrus fruits that may be too acidic and
irritating, such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruit.
7) Eating Fresh Produce High in
Carotenoids - Carotenoids are found in yellow and orange fruits and
vegetables. A British study at the University of Manchester Medical
School showed that subjects who ate a diet high in dietary carotenoids
dramatically reduced their risk of inflammatory arthritis. Carrots,
squash, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe are some examples of foods that
8) Eating Superfoods Rich in
Antioxidants - When you're at the supermarket, just remember this rule
of thumb: the deeper and richer the color of the fruit or vegetable,
the more antioxidant power it has. Choose the most colorful fruits and
vegetables in the produce aisle to benefit from powerful antioxidants.
Vibrant choices include blueberries, red grapes, mangos, pomegranate,
dark green leafy vegetables (such as spinach), brussels sprouts, red
cabbage, broccoli, sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash.
9) Increasing Calcium and
Vitamin D Intake - If you suffer from arthritis, you may suffer from
coexisting bone conditions as well. In order to protect your bones,
choose foods that are naturally high in calcium such as mustard greens,
broccoli, spinach, collard greens, and turnip greens. Foods rich in
vitamin D include mercury-minimal tuna, sunflower seeds, and
wild-caught salmon. Also, moderate exposure to sunlight increases
vitamin D production, which helps the body absorb calcium.
10) Adding Anti-Inflammatory
Spices - Herbs like turmeric, ginger, and garlic have powerful
anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that naturally help
boost the immune system.
11) Choosing Low Glycemic Index
Carbohydrates - Complex carbohydrates that have a low glycemic index
such as brown rice, raw apples, and winter squash. Avoid simple or
refined carbohydrates (sugar, white bread, pasta, cookies, cakes,
crackers) which are inflammatory.
12) Moderating Alcohol
Consumption - Use moderation and preferably choose wine, which has
13) Exercising and Losing Weight
- While it may sound painful to exercise with arthritis, there are
techniques that you can use to keep yourself flexible. According to the
National Institutes of Health, there are three types of exercise that
are best suited for people with arthritis: Range-of-motion exercises
help maintain normal joint movement and relieve stiffness.
Strengthening exercises (weight training) help keep or increase muscle
strength. Strong muscles help support and protect joints affected by
arthritis. Aerobic or endurance exercises (bicycle riding, swimming)
improve cardiovascular fitness, help control weight, and improve
overall function. Weight control can be important to people who have
arthritis because extra weight puts extra pressure on many joints. Some
studies show that aerobic exercise can reduce inflammation in some
joints. Your healthcare professional may recommend physical therapy to
help create a low-impact exercise plan that is tailored for your level
of physical ability. The focus of physical therapy should be to protect
the joints, while increasing strength, flexibility, and range of motion.
14) Stop Smoking - Cigarettes
contain many chemicals that increase inflammation, and greatly
aggravate chronic conditions.
