Arthritis Book

Arthritis is close to my heart as my Mum suffered with it for years.....Normally I don't use the word "suffered " for any illness or condition as I feel it is a victim type mentality and not powerful and we need to be powerful to tackle pain. However, having watched my Mum in so much pain for so long and her drs not really being able to help her that much I know she did suffer... So when I come across anything that might be helpful to people going through the pain of arthritis , I feel its important to share it as who knows if it might be the thing to make a difference !   



 Most of all do get a copy of the  Arthritis Reversed book. Reverse arthritis?? Really ? 


Yes it does seem a big claim but the people recommending this book are the same guys that helped me sooo much with my back and sciatic pain that Drs said I would have to "live with back and sciatic pain or have surgery".  I followed their back pain system with support and I never had surgery and I am mostly pain free from my back. So there is a high level of trust there for me...

This informative book considers a more holistic view of arthritis with internal and external factors taken into account with the authors training in conventional and alternative medicines. Perhaps the authors understanding is because he himself has also suffered chronic pain....and found how to resolve it. 


Reading the book i would say that in a solution focussed way it explores understanding the causes of your pain and how to reduce your symptoms, preventing flare ups and stopping the painful progression working towards the solution to your pain.


Some of the issues and solutions it covers are  myths about arthritis, types of arthritis, and mistakes we make. It discusses how inflammation keeps you from healing and how food is important. Of course stress and emotions play a part in illness and the book explains how 3 hidden imbalances can cause arthritis. 


The book also discusses food for pain and inflammation, natural supplements and topical creams for arthritis relief along with exercises and stress reduction, relaxation and sleep - often overlooked vital factors in healing. Interestingly it tackles how a positive attitude influences things and how to set goals for success.

8 Foods to Avoid with Arthritis



If you have arthritis, you’re probably all too familiar with the pain, swelling and joint stiffness characteristic of this disease. With osteoarthritis, the most common form, which impacts 27 million Americans, this pain is the result of the breakdown of cartilage in the joint itself, often from accumulated wear and tear.
With rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that impacts an estimated 2 million Americans, chronic inflammation of the joints leads to pain, stiffness and swelling.
You may have already realized that certain foods cause a flare-up of your symptoms, and if so, rest assured it’s not all in your head. Science shows that certain foods do indeed impact the progression of this disease. The foods that follow are among them, impacting arthritis significantly — and not in a good way.

Top 8 Foods To Avoid With Arthritis

8. Empty Calories
Jelly beans, energy drinks, pastries, fruit drinks, and cakes are examples of empty calories, foods that contain little or no nutritional value, but which can easily add more inches to your waistline. Excess weight increases the load placed on your joints, which may not only speed the breakdown of cartilage, but also may make joint pain and swelling worse.
Further, fat tissue in your body releases pro-inflammatory chemicals, such as cytokines, which can influence the development of arthritis. Losing even a small amount of weight may have a beneficial impact on your risk of developing arthritis, as well as your current symptoms.
7. Gluten
Although a formal link has yet to be established, joint pain is a common symptom described by people with gluten sensitivity, or gluten intolerance. In people who are sensitive, gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, may provoke an innate immune response that may trigger symptoms such as joint pain hours or days after the gluten is consumed.
To find out if gluten may be contributing to your arthritis symptoms, eliminate it from your diet for 2 weeks, then slowly reintroduce them and watch for any symptom flare-ups.
6. Nightshade Vegetables
Nightshade vegetables, including potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and tobacco, contain calcitriol, an active form of vitamin D that may lead to calcium deposits in soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage and joints if overconsumed.[i] This may cause or contribute to inflammation and joint pain, particularly in those who are sensitive. As with gluten, an elimination diet can help you determine if nightshade vegetables are problematic for you.
5. Vegetable Oils (Common in Processed Foods and Fast Foods)
Soybean, corn, peanut, safflower and sunflower oils are examples of vegetable oils that are rich in omega-6 fats, which most Americans consume far too much of. It’s not only a matter of the oil you use for cooking at home … far more so it’s the vegetable oils added to just about every processed food that end up being a problem.
Eating too many of these omega-6 fats may increase inflammation in your body, which may make your arthritis symptoms worse.
4. Refined Carbs
Do you notice that your joints seem achier when you’ve been eating a lot of muffins, bagels, cookies, doughnuts or pasta? This may be because these refined carbs lead to spikes in your blood sugar and insulin, and in turn increase body-wide inflammation significantly
3. Synthetic Trans Fats
You should limit your intake of trans fats, common in partially hydrogenated oils, as much as possible. Trans fats are strongly linked to systemic, chronic inflammation, which is at the root of many arthritis symptoms. Common foods that contain trans fats include savory snacks (like microwave popcorn), fried foods, frozen pizzas, cake, cookies, pie, margarines and spreads, ready-to-use frosting, and coffee creamers.
2. Blackened and Barbecued Foods
Foods cooked at high temperatures – including char-broiled, blackened, barbecued, fried, etc. – often contain harmful byproducts of the cooking process called advanced glycation end products (AGEs). AGEs are highly inflammatory and can damage your tissues, making your arthritis worse.
1. Soda
Harvard researchers recently revealed that the more sugary soda men with knee osteoarthritis drink, the more likely the condition is to get worse. Even though increased consumption of soda is linked to weight gain, a known risk factor for osteoarthritis, the link was true regardless of the men’s weight.
This suggests the soda itself may be responsible for worsening the arthritis, although a cause-and-effect link has not been proven.

Making A Bed With Back Issues

If you have back pain ideally you will have someone else to make your bed for you. However I know that is not always possible or practical for many people. Here are a few tips that may make it just that bit easier for you.

 Do of course check with your doctor if you wonder if you should be doing this at all. 


If you are currently experiencing moderate to severe back or sciatic pain, or have recently had surgery or are advised by your healthcare professional NOT to do this activity then do get someone else to do it for you. Likewise if you have even mild pain and find this aggravates it  get help to make your bed. It is not worth aggravating any pain. 


If someone can only help you once every couple of weeks ask them to put on two bottom sheets. that way after one week you can remove one of the bottom sheets and the one underneath is still clean for you.  Equally they can put a top sheet on for you and a quilt cover then you can just remove the top sheet and be clean and fresh for a further week. 


If you can buy deep pocketed fitted stretchy bottom sheets. These fit over the bed so much easier and reduce the need for pulling or tugging to get sheets to fit. 


Choose lightweight bedding and lightweight duvets. You do not want to be dragging around heavy bedding. You can always add layers of comforters if you need them. 


Unless you have someone to do your ironing choose bedding that does not require ironing. It is one less stress for your back. 


Do not lean over the bed, rather walk around gently adjusting as you go.


Do not go for a complicated bedding arrangement - just a bottom sheet and blanket or duvet cover is fine. Reduces the need for you to be spending time and energy making the bed.


Keep your back straight, bend your knees.


Make the bed in stages, it does not have to be done in one go. Do the bottom sheet then rest or do your stretches then do a bit more and so on. 


If you have back pain exercises always warm up by doing your recommended exercises before you start. 


As always if you have any back concerns do check with your healthcare professional what you should and should not be doing in terms of activities before you do them. 


Let us know any of your tips in the comments.

An Experience Living With Pain

One persons experience of living with pain and a hidden disability. Well worth a read. Interesting about the attitudes of others towards a person with a hidden condition in pain.
