I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. What do you recommend ?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which antibodies are formed against your own tissues - in this case, your joints. There are many possible reasons for this, including genetic susceptibility, lifestyle, nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities and bacterial infections. Rheumatoid arthritis does not exist in isolated communities eating primitive diets, with lots of fruits and vegetables and very little salt, wheat, refined sugars and alcohol; so eating in this simple way is a good place to start. You should have yourself checked for food intolerances and eliminate or rotate any foods that cause an immune response.

If you have a wheat intolerance but still want to eat wholewheat pasta or wholewheat bread from time to time, you can try supplementing NAG (N-acetyl-glucosamine), as it blocks the inflammatory reaction to wheat fragments in the blood. You would do well to avoid other foods that cause inflammation, such as citrus fruits, nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, aubergines and chillies), meat and dairy products. Drink plenty of bottle or filtered water daily, and eat oily fish (mackerel. sardines, wild salmon and trout) for their anti-inflammatory omega-3 content at least three times per week. Other excellent natural anti-inflammatory foods include ginger, turmeric, pineapple and papaya, which should all be regular features of your diet.
