Let me know what you find. I could use more choices of foods to eat.

1508881 tn?1313118501 I'm a 27 year old female who has been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my spine (as well as hernaited disks, DDD and stenosis). The problem is the joint pain is moving to my knees, started at right but now it's in the left, and hands. My hands hurt bad when I do dishes, brush my hair and write.

458072 tn?1291418786 I'd say give it a go, but you have to be brutally honest with yourself and realise they are not going to give you a cure, that it really is a lifestyle change, and awareness. I don't know that anyone can 'cure' my Hashimoto's and Osteoarthritis, even though he seems to think he can. But he is making me more aware of my silly eating times and how my lack of energy comes from eating the wrong 'healthy' foods. Only you know your body and you need to work out what it is you need to do for it.

There are different types of arthritis, but the most common ones are osteoarthritis which is degeneration of the bones, rheumatoid which is an autoimmune disorder; Gout where uric crystals form around the joints.
Avatar n tn So, diclofenac blocks the proper functiong of the COX enzyme in our body. That's all it does. It doesn't cure anything, it doesn't repair anything... And we don't exactly know all of COX's functions, but we do know that it's closely tied to at least 4 other 'subsystems' in our body, about which, again we know very little about. All things considered, I really see no reason to ever take diclofenac.

1765695 tn?1313673183 Depending on a patient’s particular profile, I suggest either the Dean Ornish heart-reversal diet or the South Beach Diet. If you know anything about heart disease, the Ornish diet is better because it most effectively cleanses the system of excess fat.The South Beach Diet is usually for those with risk factors but no known heart disease. This diet allows more latitude and can still get a person to the recommended targets.
Avatar f tn I changed my diet and started taking certain supplements. I went to an endocrinologist and all she found was that I had reactive hypoglycemia and possible hypothyroid. She thought I was developing hypothyroidism because I had inflammation of the thyroid. I also have inflammation of my eyes causing severe dry eyes. I also have irritable bladder and chronic constipation that is also possibly caused by inflammation. I then went to a lyme specialist.

1012558 tn?1250893022 X-rays will clearly indicate if you have Osteoarthritis X-rays combined with symptoms and Rheumatoid factor will diagnose Rheumatoid arthritis. Detailed history is very important to rule out any systemic disease. We would suggest you to visit a neurologist to rule out any neurological disease like fibromyalgia.

1652468 tn?1302904098 The first step in any holistic plan is to clean up the diet. Eliminate refined foods. Eat a whole-food diet including unrefined sugar, salt, oil, and flour, and as much organic produce as possible. Also, drink adequate amounts of water. How much water? Take your weight (in pounds), and divide by two. The resulting number is the amount of water, in ounces, you should ingest daily. It is impossible to overcome arthritis in a dehydrated condition.
Avatar n tn Did aerobics 10 years (1989-1999)and now have osteoarthritis of knees (only). As of this month, I am now taking ibupropen (instead of Celebrex)...usually only 2 tablets in morning and Cholest-Off, by NatureMade (instead of Lipitor) which they claim does not affect liver (advised me by email). Plan to retest iron about 3 months. Should I be worried? Other than arthritis, I feel very well all the time. Have very healthy diet and get plenty of rest.
Avatar n tn Changing diet is not a CURE for all diseases. To insinuate that diet is going to cure someone who had been struggling with a horrible disease is actually down right insulting. Again i think that eating the right foods WILL make people feel better over all... but i completely disagree with the notion that food is the "root cause" of some of these autoimmune illnesses.
Avatar n tn No change in diet works, no patterns can be traced. Often there is fatigue. I fall asleep with no problems.
1207048 tn?1282177904 I'm starting to hear more doctors recommend a gluten free diet for joint aching. It doesn't help everyone, but you can see if it helps you. Look the diet up on the internet! If you have any questions, leave me a message.
Avatar f tn I also had high blood pressure, probably from a bit of genetics but more from a poor diet and no exercise and some weight gain from all the pregnancies. The fibro acted up for a few years and I tried a lot of things for it. Some worked a bit; some didn't. It eventually seemed to get better and now I only have flareups of it very rarely. Of course, all the medications I'm on now probably cover a lot of the pain of it. I have osteoarthritis in both my hands and my right hip.
Avatar f tn It will give you a list of supplements and natural things you can do to help your sympthoms.

1423357 tn?1511089042 Proper nutrition means to accentuate the positive when it comes to food. I dislike the word diet. “Diet” implies a rigorous, self-sacrificial discipline that’s doomed to fail. Instead, focus on achieving food goals of what you should eat each day rather than what you shouldn’t eat.
Avatar m tn I have excellent blood pressure, all blood tests are negative for any infection or disease other than the fibro and I do have osteoarthritis. This started happening about a month ago and has gotten worse. My family dr. says it's poor circulation. I am overweight but not obese. He said I need to exercise more and lose some weight and see if that helps although he hasn't offered me any type of program or diet to lose the weight. Exercising is a struggle due to the fibro and the arthritis.
