6 Shocking Causes of Arthritis You Don’t Know About (But Should)

Asking a doctor why you have arthritis and you’ll probably hear a rambling response involving vague phrases like “multiple causes”, “inflammation” and “genetics”.

There’s some truth to the fact that many things contribute to arthritis. But most of these fly under the radar screen of most doctors (and many of their patients).

That’s why I’m shedding light are 6 of the Most Common (yet unknown) Arthritis Causes:

#1- Smoking:

It’s no secret that smoking rips your lungs to shreds. According to research published in Arthritis & Rheumatism, people who smoke have double the risk of developing arthritis than those that “say no to butts.”

How does a pack a day habit make your joints ache? Scientists have found that smoking dramatically escalates your body’s inflammation levels –the underlying cause of all arthritis.

#2- Eating Red Meat:

You choose chicken over steak for your heart. But could that occasional breakfast bacon bout lead to arthritis?

Dorothy Pattison of National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society discovered that people who regularly red meat doubled their risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis. The saturated fat in red meat seems to bumps up inflammation –leading to arthritis.

#3- Not Enough Vitamin C:

People who don’t eat vitamin C rich fruits and veggies are playing Russian roulette with arthritis. Duke University researchers found that people who didn’t get enough vitamin C had higher rates of osteoarthritis –the most common form of arthritis.

#4- Watching TV:

Believe it or Not … People that watch TV are much more likely to suffer from the extra pounds that often lead to arthritis. Flipping channels actually burns less calories than sleeping. Also, inactive joints are much more susceptible to arthritis “flare ups”.

To prevent arthritis (and obesity) limit your TV watching to an hour or less per day.

#5- Being Alone:

Drop by the neighbours’ house, pick up the phone, or shoot off an email: being socially connected significantly reduces your risk of struggling with severe arthritis.

Researchers at the University of Oxford found that people who were socially isolated tended to have more severe rheumatoid arthritis than those with a strong social network.

#6- Allergies:

Whether you’re allergic to peanuts or pollen, those allergies can make your joints cry out in pain. Allergies make your body’s immune system go haywire –making inflammation spiral out of control.

That’s why people with allergies are much more likely to have arthritis joints than those who are allergy free.

4 Superfoods that Knocks Out Arthritis Pain in a Flash

It’s well understood that your diet plays a crucial role in your arthritis pain. While the same foods that give you a trim waist and clear arteries will likely relieve your pain, a couple of foods stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Add these 4 pain-fighting superfoods to your diet and you’ll probably feel a difference a few minutes after your last bite.

Blueberries

Blueberries are overflowing with nutrients that KO arthritis pain. Yummy blueberries are especially rich in crucial compounds called antioxidants. Antioxidants are your body’s bodyguards that protect your joints from damage. If you don’t get enough of them, expect epic arthritis flare-ups to take hold.

In fact, a USDA commissioned study found that wild blueberries have more antioxidants than any other food on planet Earth! Research at the University of Prince Edward Island recently found that eating blueberries significantly reduced arthritis pain.

Green Tea

If you have arthritis, there’s an acronym that should be part of your vocabulary: EGCG. EGCG is the insanely beneficial compound found only in green tea that fights everything from cancer to cavities.

Used for centuries as a pain reliever in China, green tea is earning the notice of University researchers in the West. A study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science found that EGCG drops inflammation and relieves pain in people with severe arthritis.

Broccoli

If you’re like most people, your mother made you down this bitter green cruciferous veggie as a kid. If you followed to her advice into adulthood, you may not have arthritis today. Scientists at the University of East Anglia recently figured out why broccoli helps people with osteoarthritis –by far, the most common arthritis type.

They found that broccoli (and only broccoli) contains a funny sounding nutrient called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane presses the “OFF” button on enzymes that destroy vulnerable joints and cartridge.

Kidney Beans

In terms of arthritis pain, kidney beans have a lot going for them. First, it’s got almost as much antioxidants per ounce as blueberries. Also, they’re one of the few carbohydrate sources known as “slow carbs.” Slow carbs are digested and absorbed slowly –unlike white bread, potatoes, and soda. Studies show that replacing rapidly digesting carbs with slow carbs relieves arthritis pain.

Last (but not least), kidney beans are bursting with soluble fiber. Soluble fiber fights appetite and accelerates the weight loss results you get from dieting.
