Having read a few posts from Fiann Ó Nualláin – the man behind ‘’The Holistic Gardener’’ website, we found a number of interesting tips that could be good for you or someone you know who suffers from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Fiann talks about understanding the type of arthritis you have and how this can help you work on the right treatment plan for you. Diving in, he takes a closer look at both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and what you can do to help aid in the treatment of them. Let’s take a closer look.
Develops more often in those aged 50 and over – generally from day-to-day wear and tear. Osteoarthritis affects your cartilage which is a tough but flexible tissue that is found between the bones in your body. This of it as the shock absorber of the body.
Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage in a joint to become stiff and lose some of its elasticity. In some cases, the cartilage is worn away completely, and your tendons and ligaments stretch, which can cause pain, inflammation, stiffness, and an overall decrease in your mobility.
Unfortunately, there is no miracle cure for arthritis and there is no proven way we can reverse the damage done by osteoarthritis but Fiann has gathered a list of foods and vitamins that can help slow further damage.
Since cartilage is mainly made up of water and collagen it would make sense to add foods that kick start our bodies collagen producer and these include:
- Dark green vegetables (Broccoli, Spinach, Kale, etc.)
- Vitamin C
Can develop in those as early as 30. It is not like osteoarthritis and cause by wear and tear, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that occurs when your own immune system mistakenly attacks your own body’s tissues.
This affects the lining of your joints which can cause painful swelling and eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity.
In order to help with the swelling, calcium and magnesium-rich foods or supplements can really help here. Here are more sources of food and spices that have good anti-inflammatory properties to help with selling.
PLEASE NOTE: The above tips are how you could possibly supplement your food or prescribed medication. NOT replace them.
