Treating Arthritis Pain – It will not be out of place to consider a healthily planned food/diet as an eco-solution of its own with regards to well being.
The nutritional knowledge of our daily meals may keep us from frequenting the hospital for all the wrong reasons.
Nutrition is not just an academic term for food enthusiasts but a necessary aspect of food that everyone in the modern time should know.
According to Dr Mauro Teixeira, a researcher, Immunopharmacology Group, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil:
“By understanding the way foods interact with living organisms, we may be able to create diets that help people with the disease, as well as their health overall.”
With emphasis on arthritis pain or gouts, researchers have found that the intake of certain foods can help to combat the acute pain of the disease.
Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints which comes with swelling and great discomfort. Some are fueled by gouts – the crystallization of uric acid in the joints.
Nutritional experts in Brazil conducted a research to discover that a diet high in fibre, such as beans, wholemeal bread, rice and jacket potatoes, can help in reducing arthritis pain.
The team of researchers from the University of Minas Gerais in Brazil found that high-fibre diets trigger microorganisms in the gut to produce fatty acids. These fatty acids then helps to scale down the painful joint inflammations.
For instance foods like bread and beans has the potency of stopping gout-related inflammation.
To arrive at their finding, the scientists injected monosodium crystals into the knee joint of mice. Later a high-fibre diet and treatment with fatty acids was administered.
It was found that the diet and fatty treatment helped to prevent the pain in the knee joint of the mice.
The research further showed an improvement in the production of anti-inflammation compounds in the knee joint, thereby, preventing further knee damage and dysfunction.
