The Arthritis Problem We’re NEVER Warned About
I’m a big believer in using food as medicine.
But a lot of the “superfoods” out there don’t taste so super at all.
One day there will be a study telling you to eat a pound of kale a day… and the next day, some researcher wants to add steamed broccoli to every meal.
Who’s going to do that?
But here’s the good news – scientists have just discovered a food that actually attacks cancer cells and stops them from spreading.
And the best part? You’re going to LOVE the taste.
RA is an autoimmune condition in which the body attacks its own joints.
But RA patients often complain of another symptom that has nothing to do with their joints: brain fog.
It is common for these patients to report having difficulty concentrating, thinking, and learning new things.
These two types of symptoms seem completely unrelated, but a recent study shows that there’s a real connection.
The link is found in the chronic inflammation that is at the heart of rheumatoid arthritis.
While we’ve known for years that RA leads to a state of chronic inflammation, what we haven’t known is just how this RA-caused inflammation impacts the brain.
To determine if there was a connection, researchers used MRIs to scan the brains of patients with RA. Six months later, they conducted another MRI.
The science is a bit complicated, but these images clearly showed that the inflammation associated with RA could be altering the functional connections in the brain.
In other words, arthritis appears to causes changes in the brain that contribute to the cognitive impairment many RA patients report experiencing.
Making the connection is a good first step—doing something about it is even better.
This new knowledge tells us that by targeting central inflammation, it could be possible to not only improve the joint pain associated with RA, but also to have a beneficial impact on the brain.
Key ways to cut inflammation include eating foods that fight inflammation (like fish, olive oil, and green tea), cutting out foods that cause inflammation (like sugar, vegetable oils, and fried foods), and spending more time in the sun.
To a brighter day,
