hey, guys. dr. axe here, doctor of naturalmedicine and founder of draxe.com. in this video, i'm going to share with you the topnatural treatments for arthritis. arthritis is something that affects a lot of people.especially rheumatoid arthritis is really autoimmune in nature and actually starts inyour gut, which is surprising to a lot of people. so i'm going to really share withyou these natural arthritis treatments that are effective in terms of diet and supplementsand the things you want to stay away from. the first thing i want to talk about is thearthritis diet you should be following, is it should be anti-inflammatory. here are thetop foods you should be consuming. number one, omega-3 rich foods. omega-3 fatty acidsare going to reduce inflammation. wild-caught
salmon or wild-caught fish is your numberone food of choice. after that, for omega-3 fats, things like grass-fed beef, along withflaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts. so again, you can do a healthy snack like some walnutsand raisins, wild-caught salmon for dinner, put some flax or chia seeds in a morning superfood shake, but get those omega-3 fatty acids. the second thing you want to do diet-wiseis consume foods that are high in sulfur, and sulfur contains something called a formof msm that reduces joint inflammation and helps rebuilding your tissues. the top foodsthat are high in sulfur are going to be onions, garlic, asparagus, and cabbage. so you cando sautï¿½ed cabbage with some garlic, do some onions in with some grass-fed burger,of course, asparagus as a side dish or any
sort of cabbage or coleslaw or sauerkraut,even better, but get those sulfur-rich foods. they help reduce arthritis symptoms. the next thing you want to be adding in isbone broth. bone broth is loaded with a form of collagen that contains the amino acidsproline and glycine, and both proline and glycine help rebuild tissues. so especiallyif you have any type of degeneration or you have any sort of, not just inflammation, butdegeneration of the joint, we know that bone broth works great. so again, that's goingto be making a homemade bone broth soup is great for healing your joints. last, but not least, lots of fruits and veggies.fruits and veggies are packed with enzymes
and anti-inflammatory compounds. some of thebest include papaya, which contains papain, pineapple which contains bromelain, and othersort of raw fruits and vegetables are fantastic. that should make up the bulk of your diet.it should be organic omega-3-rich meats, healthy vegetables, healthy fruits, and some nutsand seeds like flax, chia, and walnuts. now, here's what you want to stay away from.number one is excess sugar. excess sugar causes inflammation. also hydrogenated oils, soybeanoil, cottonseed oil, even canola oil, those are inflammatory oils. stay away from those.also certain grains like gluten. consuming conventional grains, flour products, and wheatproducts will cause joint inflammation and make arthritis worse. so for that reason,on your arthritis diet, you want to stay completely
away from those foods if you want to starthealing arthritis. one other sort of food, you can look this up, if you're a very sensitiveperson, you have severe autoimmune disease, sometimes nightshade vegetables will contributeto arthritis symptoms as well. now, here are the best supplements in thenatural treatment of arthritis. number one is a fish oil supplement. i recommend 1,000milligrams a day of a high-quality fish oil. number two, turmeric. doing about 1,000 milligramsa day of turmeric or curcumin, it's a very powerful anti- inflammatory herb. now, youcan take turmeric and sprinkle that on your food, and that works great as well. but actually,taking it as a supplement can be very effective in the natural treatment of arthritis.
number three super food or super supplementyou should be using is actually proteolytic enzymes. proteolytic enzymes like bromelain,these are something that you take on an empty stomach, are probably, along with fish oil,the most effective thing you can do to get immediate relief from arthritis. number four, glucosamine. glucosamine chondroitin,or glucosamine sulfate, is very effective at actually giving your body sort of the nutrientsand things it needs for rebuilding healthy joints. and last but not least, msm. msm is a formof sulfur you can take in supplement form that's also effective.
