Daily joint pains make life hard for you?: A change in diet might improve your chronic complaints!
Living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can be a real pain and what you eat might not be good for you! Especially the cold season is a real plague for people with rheumatoid arthritis. The wet and cold weather literally pulls at the bones, joint pain, inflammation and the resulting immobility increase.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. This means your immune system which usually fights infection, attacks the cells that line your joints by mistake, making the joints swollen, stiff and painful. This can injure the joint, the cartilage and bone leading to permanent damage. There is no cure for RA.
Food as possible trigger of Rheumatoid arthritis
It’s not clear what triggers this problem with the immune system, health experts and researchers have suggested that certain types of food can cause rheumatoid arthritis by triggering inflammation, and a growing evidence has shown that delayed food allergies may be associated with RA. Health care providers often do not discuss testing for delayed food allergies with patients who have rheumatoid arthritis. The goal is to improve your joint pain and swelling and to improve your ability to perform day-to-day activities.
Using ImuPro testing will help identify those trigger foods. ImuPro guides your change in diet that will help alleviate or reduce your rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
