Remedies For Arthritis-What Role Does Your Digestion Play In Your Joint Pain?

One of the best pieces of advice I can give you pertaining to arthritis remedies is avoid foods that irritate your specific type of arthritis. Then take herb remedies that are designed to strengthen your digestion as well as your circulation. You will find that the arthritis remedies talked about on this site are geared toward eliminating toxins, building up weakness, and enhancing circulation to relieve pain.

You can already be at an advantage if you try and prevent acid and phlegm from building up in your body in the first place.We have to keep in mind that due to the energetic nature of TCM all of our needs differ. One food might be a poison to you but a cure to another. It all depends on your own energetics.

Typical measures to avoid.

If you have wind-chill-damp pain, rheumatism, beginning rheumatic or rheumatoid arthritis or you just experience any type of joint pain that is made a lot worse by harsh stimulants, cold, humidity, foods that are cold, feeling of weakness, fatigue, or depression your going to want to avoid creamy, rich, sweet, fat, or sour foods like dairy products, cheese, sauerkraut, grapefruit, sprouts, white potatoes, pork, red meats, caffeine, alcohol, or pastry.

For hot, numbness pain, inflammatory joint aches and arthritis, or joint pain that is worse with hot spices, anger, or to much stimulation your going to want to avoid honey, fried foods, excess consumption of nuts, sesame oil, pepper, garlic, onions, hot spices, pork, red meats, dairy products, alcohol, and nightshades like tomatoes, green pepper, eggplant.

Foods to counteract.

For wind-chill-damp pain you will want to use warming, drying spices as well as a diet that is warming and not phlegm producing. For inflammatory pain you may want to use bitter, cooling, and cleansing herbs as well as a diet that is cooling and acid reducing.
