Icecream facts and effect on arthritis

Like all people in their 60’s, my dad also loves Ice cream.

Is this a similar case with your near and dear one, please check that they are not eating food stuff like Ice cream, my dad has suffered a lot and I don’t want anyone to suffer from arthritis pain. I am trying my dad to make him understand that ice cream is not good for his health and his arthritis symptoms reflect that clearly. Ice cream is a the actual cause behind his initial symptoms for rheumatoid arthritis.

Ice creams can be classified into natural Ice cream and conventional Ice cream. There is a fine between a healthy and harmful ice cream which can be explained as

Conventional  Ice cream contains added flavors which are made of chemicals like Diethylglycol, Aldehydec-17, Amylacetate, Butyraldehyde, Benzyl Acetate and other chemical to give a particular flavor. These chemicals are toxic in nature and harms body system and is a major reason or symptom behind rheumatoid arthritis. These chemicals are found to be major reason behind rheumatoid arthritis symptoms found in the patients. In one word rheumatoid arthritis should avoid icecream from their diet.

Natural Ice cream is made up of milk and natural pulp of fruits like strawberry, cherry, mango, banana, grapes, various fruit juice and other organic ingredients. So far natural ice cream looks good, but the figures tells that this ice cream contains high fat ratio and sugar which is not good for arthritis patients.

In a single line natural ice cream with less milk might not harm as a natural ice cream(high fat content) and conventional Ice cream would do, they are certainly not good for arthritis patients. However Ice gives pain relief to rheumatoid arthritis patients when applied externally.

So, please try to avoid ice cream and make ice a part rheumatoid arthritis prevention not a cause.

October 2, 2010 in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Every patient suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis is searching for alternative remedy, which could lower down growth of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) in the body. A recent research by cure2arthritis.com states that the people who intake 10 units (not more or less) of alcohol a week have reduced the severity of Rheumatoid Arthritis in body.

In this research, RA patients were initially divided into two groups, First group include those patients who do not take or have alcohol infrequently and the second group include those patients who take alcohol frequently (10 units of alcohol a week or five glasses of wine a week).

After 45 days, patients in the second group were observing lesser pain than before, whereas the condition of first group patients was still degrading at the same pace. Certain blood tests and X-Ray of all the joints were led to validate the reality and it was found that, there was much lower level of inflammation and swelling around the joints of the second group patients. Their X-Ray reports had also reflected less damage to joints of second group arthritis patients when compared to the first group patients in the same duration.

A lot of intense and deep research by cure2arthritis.com team, depicted that “the alcohol actually restrains the activity of immune system at a certain point which has a major impact on the ground where Rheumatoid Arthritis actually develops in body (when alcohol is taken in limited or prescribed quantity). The alcohol’s insensitivity and anti-inflammatory effects tend to lower down the activity of immune system in body and the actual reason behind reduced pain in the second group patients”.

Cure2arthritis.com founder said that “the chances of recovering from Rheumatoid Arthritis can certainly increase with regular intake of prescribed quantity of alcohol, however any intake of alcohol apart from the prescribed quantity will certainly be harmful”.

This research also resulted that the prescribed quantity of alcohol is also helpful in lowering down symptoms of RA severity in the body. The symptoms of RA were also found low in the people who drink frequently and high in non-drinkers. In fact, alcohol is also useful in pulling down the risk of heart disease in many patients.

Rheumatoid Arthritis medicines, including immuno suppressant drugs like Confluence could damage the liver if patient intake more quantity of alcohol apart from the prescribed quantity with any immuno suppressant medicines. The patients should certainly not exceed prescribed 10 units of alcohol or 5 glasses of wine a week in order to get relief in joint pain. It should be noted that drinking of more quantity of alcohol, taking regular medicine or any antibiotic could harm liver.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a disease, which is clearly a reflection of changing lifestyle, more than 2 percent of world population is currently affected by Rheumatoid Arthritis. There is an urgent need to find alternative treatment, which can lower down the RA effects and restrain further damage. Millions are spent every year to discover a medicine to cure Rheumatoid Arthritis, patients can certainly restrain themselves from every form of arthritis by adopting few simple measures.

March 7, 2010 in Arthritis, Diet, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis

Calcium is very important in our diet and certainly very essential nutrient of body. Not having right quantity of calcium in the diet, can make you more likely prone to osteoporosis. Vitamin D is needed for the body to absorb calcium and there is some evidence that arthritis,progresses faster in people who are low in it. That is why sun bath is very important and helpful in lowering pain.

 

1. Try to lose weight by changing your eating habits and increasing exercise (recommended on excercise) if possible, we are not talking about crash diets

2. Eat more fruit and vegetables, especially brightly coloured varieties

3. Take plenty of calcium- and iron-rich foods with 4 ltr of water

4. Try replacing red meat with oily fish twice per week

 

How much calcium to be included in diet of arthritis patient-

Males aged around and above 50 should intake minimum 1000 milligram per day and maximum limit of 2000 milligram per day.

Females aged around and above 50 should intake minimum 1200 milligram per day and maximum limit of 2000 milligram per day.

Side affects of low calcium
Lack of calcium would lead to Osteoporosis, which porous bones in the body and low calcium is also results into psoriasis arthritis. The problem with calcium is never the amount of calcium intake, but how to digest calcium. Most of calcium is not digested in small intestine and body rather it is excreted as waste, Osteoporosis and arthritis patients should find way to digest most of calcium.
