Do you think dairy causes arthritis type aches and pains. When I was drinking milk I wasn't sure but was wondering if that was the cause of my pain. .
, if you're coming off a standard Western diet, you may be suffering the effects of it -- or your joints are.
You are correct that it is most-likely diet related. One of the biggest culprits is dairy, yes!
It is the animal protein
(that seems to be the problem most times, isn't it?) For this reason, meat is also considered a contributor as well -- it is the acidic nature of these "foods" which also cause so, so many issues!
Kathryn listed the nightshades which are also common triggers, as well as grains such as corn, wheat, etc., or derivatives of same
-- cornstarch, gluten; so checking labels is important if you have an allergy. (Even tiny amounts can cause pain). You may want to try an elimination method to find out which is the little devil causing you problems. (note the acidic theme...Grains
are also acidic and not optimal, especially a grain/starch-based diet)
However, you may have a notion of what it is...do you? If you consume dairy, I'd eliminate that first. You don't need it anyway, and it causes a host of other issues and you'll be healthier for getting rid of it
It's another example of vital information the powerful Dairy and Cattle industries lobby hard
to keep from Us.
However you can read HERE about it and the elimination procedure
for more about food and arthritis.
Dr. Fuhrman's "Eat to Live" dietary guidelines
have cured people of many conditions, including arthritis.
with a great comment following it.
Are you consuming enough/any E.F.A.'s? That can help with joint issues. 1 TB of ground flax seeds every day or a DHA Supplement
will help tremendously with a LOT of things, including arthritic issues. As well, up your leafy greens intake for a great food source, as well as consuming nuts daily and (about 1 ounce total). Forgo oils for optimal nutrition and consume your fat in its natural form, such as the seeds and nuts.
I highly recommend Dr. Fuhrman's dietary guidelines and his products which are excellent, including his DHA.
