One of the keys to not only reducing symptoms of rheumatic conditions but even reducing the likelihood of the appearance of symptoms is through nutritional therapy. From maintaining a healthy weight to ensuring that your body is not only getting the right minerals and vitamins, but absorbing them properly, these are the keys to successful nutrition for those diagnosed with a rheumatic condition. Those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis RA may have many symptoms relieved by simply eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong ones.
Most Americans have diets which are out of balance, making our bodies out of balance. Diets which are high in carbohydrates including grains and breads made from grains, which contain gluten, can have negative impacts on your body and your joints specifically. Foods high in purines such as prunes or liver may negatively impact those with gout. Diets rich in Vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids seem to show positive results to those with joint pain and swelling. Eating well, getting down to your optimum weight and enhancing your diet with useful supplements such as Vitamin D3 can help you feel and be better overall.
