8 herbs that treat rheumatic diseases
Medicinal herbs can be an adjunct therapy in addition to medical therapy to treat and alleviate rheumatic ailments. Nutritionists believe that consuming foods rich in iron improves rheumatic pain. They do not recommend consuming supplements that can increase pain and encourage joint swelling. Some amino acids (histadine) help the body get rid of heavy metals (which worsen ailments). It is advisable to eat rice, rye and wheat. The intake of saturated fats should be reduced, ie the intake of dairy products (especially whole cheese) and red meat should be reduced. Citrus fruits, caffeine, cigarettes and foods with white sugar should be avoided. Solanine worsens inflammatory processes. Therefore, foods rich in sulfur (eggs, garlic, red onions) are advised. Sulfur is needed to build cartilage, connective tissue and bones. Helps in calcium absorption. Peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and white potatoes should be avoided. Fish oil has an anti-inflammatory effect, so you should eat mackerel, herring, sardines, salmon and tuna (rich in omega 3 fatty acids). Ginger contains anti-inflammatory compounds. Ginger should be consumed diluted with water or added to dishes. The usual dose is three times a day and is 5 grams of fresh ginger or half a gram of powdered ginger.
