Arthritis is common but not very well understood the disease. Actually, it is not a single disease; but just an informal way of referring to joint pain/disease. There are more than 100 types of Arthritis and related issues. People of all ages, can and do have Arthritis. In fact, it is the leading cause of disability in America. The spread of this disease is around 7.1 % among people between the age group of 18-44, 29.3 % between the age group 45-64, and 49.6% among those who are above 65.
The common symptoms of Arthritis include:
- Pain, Stiffness, and Swelling, and,
- Decreased range of motion
The disease affects your joints, but, do you know that it may also affect other parts of your body including skin, eyes, and lungs, to name a few. Talking about its effects on the body, some of the worse effects of Arthritis include lack of sleep, a feeling of helplessness, and chronic dehydration.
What can be done to treat Arthritis?
There are a number of things that can be done to preserve joint function. The major step to be taken for treating this disease is initiating a change in your diet regime. We suggest a change in diet regime because nothing else can cure a disease in a way better than your food choices. Also, taking a healthy diet does not impose any threat to your body the way drug intake does.
Here, we are sharing a few diet tips for Arthritis with you, following which the disease can be treated:
- Intake of high anti-oxidant rich diet
- Opt for more Omega-3 fatty acid foods
- Consumption of anti-inflammatory foods like Ginger & Turmeric
