Nutrition Tips for people with Arthritis
Good nutrition can be helpful in:
Omega 3 Oils
There is limited evidence that fish oils (omega 3) reduce inflammation in some people with arthritis. Omega 3 oil is also thought to reduce risk of heart disease.
It is recommended to have 1-2 servings of fish or other seafood a week for good health. Omega oil is also found in flaxseed oil, walnuts and a small amount in red meats.
If you are unable to achieve a healthy food intake, vitamin supplements may be necessary. Talk with your Doctor about this.
Alternative Arthritis treatments
Alternative treatments are available for many chronic diseases. Discuss these with your Doctor before you try them as they may interact with your treatment.
