Discover which foods and chemical additives cause arthritis inflammation, gout and fibromyalgia pain
by JB Bardot
(The Best Years in Life)
Certain foods and chemical additives
disguised as food can aggravate or cause
muscle and joint pain associated with
arthritis, gout and fibromyalgia.
Avoiding these foods can pave the way
for reduced inflammation, stiffness and
pain - setting the stage for ongoing
relief, with increased mobility and a
better mental attitude. Although it may
be a challenge to avoid well-loved
foods, keep in mind that many of those
foods are causing widespread systemic
problems that result in debilitating
pain, so they are not your friends.
The nightshade vegetables are
lesser-known offenders; however, for
some people, eating any nightshade can
cause excruciating pain and disability.
This small family of vegetables contains
a natural substance called solanine;
when consumed, it can produce severe
pain in the joints and the soft tissue,
giving rise to arthritis and
fibromyalgia flare-ups. The nightshades
include tomatoes, peppers, white
potatoes, eggplant and tobacco. Because
several of these vegetables are included
in so many recipes, special attention
must be given to eliminating them from
the diet. Smokers suffering from
arthritis might view the possible cause
and effect relationship of tobacco on
Purines are the byproduct of protein
digestion, and they break down into uric
acid, the main cause of gout. All
proteins produce some purines; however,
eating certain types of protein is more
likely to create a gout flare. Red
meats, organ meats and shellfish are
considered particularly harmful. Some
people are more sensitive to one
protein, so each should be monitored for
its effects on the disease.
Vegetable-based proteins, lean organic
poultry and fresh fish are excellent
substitutes for those foods eliminated.
Wheat and wheat gluten are implicated in
several diseases, including certain
types of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and
digestive disorders such as irritable
bowel syndrome, Crohn's and celiac
disease. Wheat and gluten are especially
harmful to the body when highly
processed, as in white flour where
nutrients are completely stripped from
the grain. Less sensitive people are
able to eat sprouted wheat products
without negative effects; however,
eating a gluten-free diet may help
reduce most painful joint symptoms.
Research has shown that eating trans
fats can contribute to musculoskeletal
pain and aggravate gout, arthritis and a
host of other conditions. A diet
including regular consumption of
fat-laden proteins found in most fast
foods may aggravate or cause pain for
many people with these conditions.
Replace bad fats with healthy fats found
in avocados, olives, coconuts, flax
seeds and their oils.
Food additives and preservatives and
artificial sweeteners are used in almost
all packaged products; and they can
cause a wide range of mental and
physical symptoms including joint and
muscle pain. MSG -- in all of its
disguises -- is known to create a
multiplicity of symptoms, especially in
those who are sensitive to this
chemical. Severe joint and body pain,
cognitive dysfunction, dizziness and
headaches are just a few of the side
effects. Artificial sweeteners stimulate
the pancreas causing an imbalance in
insulin and blood sugar levels and can
produce body aches and pains as well as
severe digestive disorders and cancers.
Replace MSG with spices to flavor foods
and use natural foods like raw honey and
stevia as sweeteners.
