Dietary changes to help with Osteoarthritis

Feb 14, 2017 7:09 PM

I have severe arthritis throughout most of the joints in my body, I just had my right hip replaced, and in 6 months I will get my other one done, then a year from then I will have one knee replaced and a year after that my other knee replaced.

I am only 57 and my body has started to fail me a lot in the last 5 years, likely due to the arthritis. Does anyone have any dietary recommendations or supplements recommendations that worked well with the onset and advancement of Osteoarthritis?

Lots of Omega 3 supplements and wild caught salmon. Anti-inflammatories like fresh ginger tea ( this actually worked wonders with my Dads arthritis and my achey knees). Turmeric too, eat as clean as possible.

I’m sorry about your many surgeries. I hope you are doing better now. I’ve learned that sugar and alcohol increases inflammation. Danielle idea of omega 3 supplements such as fish oil is also good. Sorry if I’ve made any typing errors because I cannot see what I have typed for some reason. I just started taking omega 3. I’m a sugar junky so I’ve tried to cut down how much I eat. I too have bad arthritis etc and feel foryou. I’m 64. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

As an almost 60 year old, drop the bread, or gluten! Works wonders on inflamation! And pain. Find you a copy of Wahls Protocol book. I used it as a guide line. Remember never use the bad word diet, it is lifestyle change. By dropping those things suggested I take no more opiates! Shocked me when I realized I had gone 3 weeks without having to take anything but the doterra supplement called deep blue. It has been a year now and I dropped 20 pounds without realizing, and still have 7 of my pills from the 10 I am allowed. I still have some of my n-said patches which I will have to toss due to expiring.

Wahls Protocol is amazing! I have been able to wean off Fentanyl and Norco. Now Advil usually works for me. Amazing after being on high dose Fentanyl since 2009. For my RA, OA and chronic pain syndrome I use Ubiquinol (35.00 at Sam's for 120 capsules,
also available on Amazon )this is a CoQ 10 supplement that is already converted so your body does not have to convert it. This supplement allows your muscles and nerves to properly communicate pain signals. Glucosamine,chondrotin, hyaluronic acid supplement mix and most of all Epsom salt soaks. Heating pads help as well as biofreeze gel.
