Arthritis leads to inflammation in the body, therefore it is important for individuals with this condition to eat foods that can reduce inflammation and remove those foods from their diet that cause inflammation. Doing so can have an impact on how they feel and their recovery. Research has shown that many diet factors can contribute to inflammation - these include: sugar, weight gain, not eating enough, eating too much, not getting enough nutrients, dehydration and consuming fried foods. We can help create a nutrition plan for you that will reduce inflammation and have you feeling your best!
