Many people start to feel pain and stiffness in their joints as they get older, often when they’re 45 to 50. It’s called osteoarthritis, and it’s one of the most common diseases nationwide. However, most are unaware of one of the best treatments for this condition. Click here to learn more about this treatment.

Foods that Fight Inflammation

This month the topic is treatment for osteoarthritis. One way to fight inflammation is with the proper diet. Harvard Health Publishing suggests the following are important to avoid to decrease inflammation:

  • refined carbohydrates, such as white bread and pastries
  • French fries and other fried foods
  • soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages
  • red meat (burgers, steaks) and processed meat (hot dogs, sausage)
  • margarine, shortening, and lard

Expert panels are groups of healthcare providers that come together to write guidelines on how certain diagnoses should be treated. The Ottawa Panel is well-respected and has released a number of guidelines for the treatment of osteoarthritis. While they are clinical in nature, the layperson can certainly understand the conclusions. Click here for the recommendations and reference.
