Arthritis

The term arthritis means joint inflammation. There are many types of arthritis but the 2 most common ones are; osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis (also known as rheumatism) is a degenerative joint disease that more commonly strikes older people as it occurs as a result of wear and tear on the joints although obesity, joint trauma, repetitive use, osteoporosis and food intolerances or allergies are also risk factors. The joints most commonly affected are the fingers, the base of the thumb, the hips, the knees, the big toe and the spine. The pain of osteoarthritis starts slowly and gradually gets worse as the condition progresses. Symptoms include; deep aching pain, swelling, tenderness and decreased function.

A Nutrition Mission therapist will identify triggering factors of arthritis and adjust your diet accordingly, usually eliminating inflammatory foods within your diet and replacing them with alternatives that do not encourage inflammation.

Nutrition Mission have been invaluable in giving me nutritional advice and sorting out any nutritional problems I have. Also they looked at my lifestyle and have gone out of their way to get advice and publications to me. I have had problems with insomnia, weight-gain problems and general lifestyle, so my nutritional therapist has given great information as to how to look at my daily diet coupled with my ailments, which supplements to take and while the laymen guesses at a lot of this Nutrition Mission have clearly shown me the way forward!
