nightshade vegetables to be avioded in arthritisMy dad is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis with severe arthritis pain in knee joint, which is commonly known as Osteo Arthritis. Now he has a trust factor on me as he got some positive results after leaving Ice cream, now he is asking me for a diet which could help in reducing joints pain of osteo arthritis and get a perfect arthritis cure.

I asked him to avoid nightshade vegetables, as they are very harmful in osteo arthritis and also in rheumatoid arthritis. I told him that nightshade vegetables are those vegetables that grow in night, these vegetables contains a natural chemical solanine. Solanine is a gift of nature to vegetables that grows in night to prevent people from eating them. Solanine is actually toxic in nature and is found to be a major factor in increasing joint pain in the body. So nightshade vegetables should be avoided in all forms of arthritis.

My dad is now showing a sort of interest in knowing more about nightshade vegetables, I told him about list of vegetables included in nightshade vegetables category are Peppers, Potatoes, Ground Cherries, capsicum, Tobacco, Eggplant, pepinos and pimentos, Garden Huckleberry, naranjillas and some other vegetables. Note: Only White potatoes, yellow fingerlings, and blue potatoes are included in nightshade vegetable group

I also asked him to quit his smoking habit in osteo arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Smoking is also a major factor which reduces synovial fluid and makes joint stiff. Smoking is very harmful in arthritis and must be avoided. My dad also loves rice and when I asked him to replaced polished rice with Brown rice, he was not actually happy with me. But I asked him to follow my instructions to avoid nightshade vegetable, tobacco, ketchup, smoking and Polished rice in arthritis diet for only few days.

My dad is actually not happy with me and I know he is very stubborn, he angrily ask me nothing is left to eat in arthritis joint pain. I was prepared for this statement and I readily provide him the list of vegetables diet for arthritis pain relief and the list includes Green Beans, Okra (Lady Finger), Cauliflower, Carrots, Green Lettuce, Asparagus, Spinach, Soybeans, meat(not red meat), black-eyed peas, lentils and other Starchy Root Vegetables.

The fruits suitable in arthritis joint pain relief includes melons, peaches, cherries (not ground cherries), blueberries Arctium Lappa Fruit, guava, mango, all varieties of grapes and oranges.

Dry fruits suitable for people with arthritis pain includes only  Peanuts and almonds.

Now he has answer, what to eat in arthritis and what not to eat with arthritis joint pain. Lets hope that all people suffering from arthritis should avoid nightshade vegetable, tobacco, smoking and Polished rice to get a positive results for their arthritis joint pain and eat what is recommended in this blog to get perfect cure 2011 for arthritis joint pain.

  6. I’m impressed, I must say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something regarding this.

  7. I read that one of the best natural cures for RA is potato juice. Soak a thinly sliced potato with skin on in a cup of water overnight. Drink water 1st thing in morning on empty stomach. I wonder if it has to be a specific potato because of the solanine? I would like to know for sure before I try this.

    yours truly,

  12. what about wheat bread and roti ? (whole wheat chapati)? Are they allowed in this diet plan ?

  13. People cannot avoid wheat bread and roti in arthritis, they are essential and should be taken once in day.

  14. great post but what one should be aware is candida which is also a cause of almost any disease including arthritis and cancer as well.letuce which is plastic like not to be eaten with any food as it blocks nutrient absorbtion and one will experience arthritic pain and bone ache.white rice is safer to eat then brown rice but white rice has no nutrients but provides bulk while brown rice is wery nutritious because of that goes quickly off you can smell it sometimes it smells like stale oil and it will feed candida ,you will notice itchy nose or cobweblike on your face after eating brown rice if is stale despite long use by date.ripe tomatoes and capsicums or any ripe fruit is at the point of decay when eaten it will ferment not digest sugar also fuels fermentation creates ethanol and rot that rot equals compost which equals mushrooms and truffles of human body what medical proffesion calls cancer,which does not spread it is in every cell of candidal body in trillions of microscopic spores and can wait dormant for decades untill right condition arises to pop up.most nuts are fungal peanuts and wallnuts worst dry fruit very fungal including herbal teas especialy green tea,as fungus is main culprit of candidal infection anything fabricated and prepared to keep harbours fungus.if you dont eat or drink anything you can still inhale fungus mouldy bathrooms leaky roofs mould under house comm.air cons. compost etc old cheeses beer yeast leven bread and list goes on for ever.have you noticed even pets are geting human diseases since they been introduced to dry and tinned food.GOOD APETITE and dont forget once candidaly infected one is addicted to fungal food untill one is cant cure or operate wrong diet or candida you can only control it with non candidal food,and dont panic whole world is candidaly infected without even knowing isnt that haven for big farmaceuticals.see my essay on yeast containing foods/allergy

    Spinach should also be avoided as it has a similar effects as the rest of the nighshade family.

  16. It is important to know your blood group and adjust your diet accordingly. Invest in Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo’s blood type book for the four blood groups with their food lists. The lists are correct as I established my own lists according to my body’s reaction to foods before I read the books with their food lists. I have RA and is a O non secretor. Diet is everything in all disease. Without us knowing, we eat ourselves into disease through ignorance by eating the wrong foods for our blood groups throughout our lives till its too late. Once you adjust your diet, you can push whatever you have into remission or slow it down and give your body a chance to heal.

  17. I have RA and potatoes are nightshade food and must be avoided. Potatoes, like tomatoes, sweet peppers and eggplant causes massive inflammation and flares. To be avoided.
