Go Back

Posted on by

Many types of foods can lessen inflammation in the body. Examples are foods containing ginger, garlic , turmeric. In addition diets high in Omega oils are good. These include fish especially salmon, tuna and tilapia, cod, avocados, nuts such as walnuts and almonds. Lean proteins such as chicken and fish and soya are advisable. dairy products, especially low fat yogurt are beneficial. Include at least 5 servings of fresh vegetables and fruits. It is preferable to eat the vegetables closer to a raw or undercooked state. Dark green and brightly colored vegetables have phytochemicals that are useful. Avoid processed foods and meats, foods high in sodium, white breads, excessive starchy foods, and sugars. There is no real evidence that night shade plants such as tomatoes, potatoes, egg plant or citrus fruits worsen arthritis.
