Rheumatoid Arthritis Prevention
Rheumatoid arthritis prevention means taking care of your immune system.
Looking after your immunity is the most important thing you can do, not only
for rheumatoid arthritis prevention, but also to prevent a host of other auto
immune diseases. As rheumatoid arthritis is caused by a faulty immune system, do
everything in your power to boost your immune system and keep it functioning
We do this by eating healthy foods. We need the correct balance of protein,
carbohydrate and fat each day. Eating on the run and taking a multivitamin pill
just doesn't work. Why?
Because a variety of fresh healthy food may contain nutrients that may not
yet have been isolated. No vitamin pill on earth contains the full spectrum of
nutrients that the human body need for optimal health. Vitamin pills are great
for supplementing a healthy diet, but not for replacing one.
Most of us know what to eat for good health, less fat and processed food and
more fresh fruit and vegetables. Lean meat is fine in moderation as long as the
digestive system can cope with it. In fact vegetarians are sometimes not
entirely healthy because they are missing vital nutrients found in meat or
animal based foods such as milk and eggs. A good knowledge of nutrition is
necessary to ensure good health if you are a vegetarian. Also supplementation
with certain nutrients - for example vitamin B12 - becomes necessary.
Finally make sure you are drinking enough water. Water flushes out toxins,
prevents thickening of the blood and can prevent overeating.
Include more raw foods in your diet. Raw foods contain enzymes which aid in
their digestion. If your body is not digesting foods properly, your immune
system will kick in and try to help the digestive process. This puts a huge
strain on the immune system.
Include salads and raw vegetables in your diet because cooking destroys
enzymes. Eat plenty of pineapple and pawpaw as these two fruits contain powerful
enzymes which will help your digestion. If you're unable to eat raw foods,
digestive enzymes can be bought from a health store.
Digesting food properly is very important as vital nutrients can be properly
absorbed and the immune system is freed up to do what it does best -- keeping

What about if you already have rheumatoid arthritis? Will taking care of your
immune system help?
Most definitely it would. Some cases of rheumatoid arthritis have gone into
remission using the above dietary tips. Other people have been able to lower and
even stop their pain medication as their immune systems improved and their
rhumatoid arthritis symptoms disappeared.
