7 Foods That Flare Up Arthritis (Avoid These at All Cost)The traditional medical system has no cure for arthritis. The available drugs are only temporarily effective at best.

At worst, the side effects have been proven deadly.

But there is an easier, safer way to manage arthritis. It involves avoiding a few types of foods that have been proven to flare up inflammation and arthritis.

Cut out these 7 types of foods I’m sharing with you today, and I promise you’ll feel drastic changes in only a few short days.

Fried/Processed Foods – The dangers associated with fried, frozen, and processed foods are plenty and should be avoided at all cost. Fried meats and prepared frozen meals are so loaded with all kind of chemicals that they flare up inflammation and increase joint pain on the spot.

Lower your AGE – No, we don’t mean your “physical age.” AGE refer to Advanced Glycation End-product. It’s a type of toxin that appears when food is cooked to a high temperature, as in the case when it is grilled, pasteurized, fried, or heated. AGEs not only damage many proteins in your body but also causes severe inflammation.

Sugar and refined carbohydrates – Avoid the consumption of sugary products and those made of refined or processed white flour. These products usually lack nutrition and even worse may contain AGEs that cause inflammation and pain. Sugar is the #1 fuel for inflammation. Say no also to sodas, candies, and baked goods made of white flour.

Dairy products – While it is not harmful for all arthritis patients, some proteins in dairy products can irritate the tissue around joints. A vegan diet may be suitable for these patients, and the protein can be derived from legumes, vegetables, nut butter, beans and tofu. On the flip side, some arthritis patients seem to benefit greatly from dairy products. Conduct your own test by not consuming dairy for a week and observe whether your arthritis improves or worsens.

Tobacco – Tobacco causes so much harm that it should be avoided, even if one does not suffer from arthritis. That said, smokers are also at a higher risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, as the products in cigarettes affects your joints very negatively.

Salt – For many people suffering from arthritis, salt intake aggravates the pain and swelling. Use less salt and read food labels to make sure that it’s free of additives and preservatives, which are major culprits behind arthritis.

Omega 6 rich oils – Corn oil as well as other oils rich in omega-6 fatty acids, like soybean oil and sunflower oil, can take a toll on your health, as this particular type of fatty acid causes inflammation.

It’s actually not the omega-6 fat itself that’s the problem, but the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 fat consumption. So, make sure you include a healthy ratio of omega-3 fatty acids along with omega-6 fatty acids. Fish oil, olive oil, flax seeds, and pumpkin seeds are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
