Antioxidants That Help In Fighting The Disease

Last couple of years you can read or hear in media how important it is to eat food that served as antioxidants. It seems that speaking about some foods is in vogue, but when talking about antioxidants, it is really important to eat food that contains them, especially when we are ill. People who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis should include antioxidants into their rheumatoid arthritis diet. The antioxidants will prevent the inflammation of a body, which is especially good to know when suffering from RA symptoms such as pain in joints. Which food is rich in antioxidants? All the vegetables that contain vitamin C, and that is green salad, peppers, and broccoli. Tomatoes are rich with antioxidants as well. When you eat veggies, try to eat them raw or in a juice, you have made at home. Highly processed food should be avoided in your condition. Especially avoid fried food because that will not serve your health. Even the healthy person should avoid fried food because it is not healthy at all. If you still want to fry potatoes sometimes, than rather choose olive oil for frying because it’s best for that purpose. Include some nuts into your diet such as almonds or walnuts.

    I am beginning to feel that my joints are swelling. This is so new to me but I have a strong feeling this is already rheumatoid arthritis. I also had fever and I feel very tired most of the time. I just hope that this is not going to be chronic.


  • Cherlyn says:

    Those are also the symptoms I had before the doctor confirmed that I have rheumatoid arthritis. Most of my joints are affected by it. It’s sad that it’s chronic but the best I can do now is abide by my doctors advice to at least lessen the discomfort.


  • Corinne Samuels says:

    My father has rheumatoid arthritis and it’s quite severe. It already caused deformity and destruction on his joints. I feel bad that he has to go through it. I have a feeling his smoking is the reason behind its occurrence.
