[WARNING] NEVER Eat These Foods With Arthritis
Dr. G: You’ve heard correctly.
Believe it or not, avoiding nightshade vegetables could be the answer to long-term arthritis pain relief.
In fact, I’ll go a step further and say that not only could avoiding nightshades reduce your pain, they could be the CAUSE of your pain.
And that means that cutting them out of your diet could ELIMINATE your pain altogether.
Sounds shocking, I know.
But in reality, what you’re identifying as a condition (arthritis) could in reality be a SYMPTOM a sensitivity to nightshades.
Nightshades vegetables include tomatoes, eggplant, red peppers, and potatoes.
I know it’s hard to imagine that a vegetable could be bad for you. (You may want to avoid mentioning this to the grandkids.) The problem with these particular foods is that they contain two compounds that are terrible for your joints.
The first is calcitriol. This is an important nutrient that tells our kidneys to absorb calcium from the diet. This is critical for bone mineral density.
But if there’s too much calcitriol, it can lead to an excess of calcium. The body then tries to get rid of it by dumping it in the soft tissues. Over time, this buildup leads to arthritis pain.
The second is solanine, which is actually a poison that the plant produces to defend against insects and disease. This poison can be extremely pro-inflammatory, which is an underlying factor in arthritis.
These sound like good reasons for ANYONE to avoid these veggies, and I certainly know numerous people who have decided to cut them out of their diet.
But if you’re suffering from arthritis pain, this is especially important for you.
I always advise my arthritis patients to try a trial diet that cuts out nightshades, and I have seen the dramatic benefits firsthand.
I also recommend cutting out gluten since it is highly inflammatory and seems to aggravate arthritis pain.
But not everyone notices a difference, which brings me to two important points.
- This approach isn’t one-size-fits-all. No treatment is. You have to investigate what foods are aggravating to you specifically, and create your own personalized diet based on your individual needs.
- You have to commit 100 percent to eliminating these foods from your diet. It’s the only way you’ll know for sure if cutting them out has an impact.
In the majority of cases, making a few simple dietary changes can directly impact the root cause of the pain.
And that’s what REAL medicine is all about.
