  • I always believed diet could help
  • great useful ideals thank you
  • Thank goodness for my daily spinach and kale salads.
  • Great idea's and tips. Will try to incorporate some into my day.
  • Thank you so much for this reminder of Foods that combat arthritis. Now I see where I went wrong, I had decreased certain fruit and veggies that I usually consumed generously such as the tangerines, kiwi fruit, kale, romane, & greens. I am not a big fan of okra, yet if it will relieve my arthritis pain I will try to eat as much okra as I can tolerate. Thanks to BEBARB149 for providing the time required for the kiwi and other foods to take affect. I am glad I read this article
  • This article was informative along with the salad photo = great combo.
  • it has been 10 years since a definitive diagnosis of RA and Fibromyalgia. i have always eaten whole foods - as much raw as possible. i believe that genetics played and huge roll in my disease as i remember complaining of severe joint pain and nerve sensitivity at about 11 years old when i started mensus.
    at this stage of my life - i still eat as naturally and safely as i can - washing veggies and/or affording organic some time - but weather - wear and tear - and aging - take over in the end.. we are all on the road to the ultimate freedom - but we try as best we can to make ourselves comfortable. a tall order for sure.
  • Seems you're forgetting one of the fundamental tenets of statistics: correlation is not causation.
  • Great article, one I must save.

  • Thanks for the info. BEBARB149 Thanks for the info with kiwi. I have been eating them lately. So about a month I should start feeling better from the arthritis.
    This article reminded me of one of my favorite books on nutrition because of its mentioning cartenoids and the healthy foods that contain them.

    One of the best go-to reference-style books ever for profiles on the healthiest whole foods is Superfoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life. The book was published in 2004, and since then nine additional superhealthy foods have been added to the list including cinnamon, dark chocolate, kiwi, and avacado.

    The author Dr. Pratt followed this book up with SuperHealth-- another one that I love. This book covers whole nutrition, exercise, and sleep and other healthy lifestyle choices. has more on these foods.
  • The food you eat really does make a difference. I was told by a friend to eat Kiwi fruit daily to lessen arthritis pain, and it works. It took about a month to start working, and I almost gave up, but that was several years ago. Now, if I miss a few days I start to ache more and more until I remember and start up again. The nice thing about food as medicine is it's fun to fix, tastes good, and can't cause side effects if you aren't allergic.
    For those willing to change their diet this is a great blog for reducing Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain
