Most, doctors specializing in the treatment of arthritis, joint pain, and autoimmune diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system  never even consider diet as an important factor in the development of these conditions.  I was formally trained in rheumatology at the VA hospital in Houston, TX, and I can say that diet and nutritional recommendations to patients were discouraged and in most cases frowned upon by our attending physicians.  It was actually this experience that prompted me to dig deeper into the connection between autoimmune disease and food.

Over the past 10 years, I have treated thousands of patients with arthritic conditions.  The most single effective therapies have always been diet and exercise.  The paradox with exercise…  It is harder to stick to if it flares up the arthritis.  The problem with food…everyone reacts uniquely based on their own unique chemistry.  But it only makes sense that if drugs can target inflammation as a treatment, why can’t food.  After all, isn’t food a drug of sorts?

I have found that medical research greatly supports this connection, but more importantly, I have found that patients get better after eliminating inflammatory foods from their diets.  What foods should we avoid to help recover from arthritis?  Depends on the person.  Everyone is unique.

Fox News recently interviewed me on this very complex topic.  You can watch the interview below.  If you think that the information will benefit someone (including your doctor), please share it.

    I haven’t see too much evidence that gluten is bad for anyone other than those with celiac disease. However there seems to be random evidence that gluten is directly responsible for the increased risk for a variety of other nasties. Another great post.
