Rheumatoid arthritis diet

People suffering from this debilitating problem have a wide range of symptoms, which include:

rheumatoid arthris diet

After repeated requests from visitors, we have added this page which contains a generic diet for people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

The 7-day eating plan listed below for rheumatoid arthritis patients was compiled by a dietitian and although it would be best that a dietitian work out a tailor-made diet for every person, our diet below can be used as a foundation to plan your diet.

We have a selection of herbal products available, and some are formulated to assist with this problem. To view our product catalogue, please click here.

The typical onset age of rheumatoid arthritis

This can start anything from 25 - 50 years, but earlier or later onset is not uncommon and affects more than 2.9 million people in the United States alone.

Dietary advice rheumatoid arthritis

In the effective management of rheumatoid arthritis it is important to change the type of fat in the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in the inflammatory pathway of the human body and thus have increased popularity in the dietary management of this problem.

It would be a good idea to increase your omega-3 fatty acid intake either in tablet form or as part of your daily diet.

Foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids are:

  • canola oil (the oil and margarine)
  • salmon oil
  • soybean oil
  • soybeans
  • walnut oil
  • walnuts
  • avocado oil
  • fresh avocado.

Increase the daily intake of raw or steamed foods as well as fish, chicken, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and rice.

Foods to avoid rheumatoid arthritis

Many foods can aggravate rheumatoid arthritis and precipitate flare-ups and should therefore be kept to the bare minimum, or preferably cut out of the diet.

Should you be unsure of the cause of flare-ups in your diet, follow an eliminating diet, where certain suspect foods are eliminated from the diet, and then added one at a time in order to pinpoint the exact culprit/s when a flare-up appears after adding the particular food to your diet again.

Foods that are acid and should be restricted:

  • alcohol
  • dairy
  • berries
  • tea
  • coffee
  • refined wheat
  • saturated fats
  • salts
  • processed foods
  • fried and grilled foods

  • Moisturizing day cream
    • This day cream is formulated to help fight the signs of aging on various fronts. It helps to reduce free radical damage which, if left unchecked, leads to premature aging. The herbal extracts help to promote cell rejuvenation and regeneration and provide moisture and hydration to the skin.
  • Nourishing night cream
    • This nourishing night cream penetrates the skin extremely well and does not make the skin feel oily. It contains a host of herbal extracts to help in the fight against premature aging and has added vitamin E as well. Apart from the moisturizing effect and the anti-aging properties it also softens and smoothes the skin.
  • Eye gel
    • An effective refreshing eye gel to help reduce puffiness and dark rings around the eyes, while fighting wrinkles and lines. This is a very clever combination of herbal extracts and the base formula has its roots in a clinically proven formula.

This recommended weekly treatment will boost circulation to the skin, help to fight wrinkles and lines, improve firmness while at the same time improving suppleness and elasticity of the skin.


Hair care

  • Shampoo with rosemary extract + 7 other herbals
    • Our shampoo is in a class of its own – and granted – it is far more expensive than cheap supermarket shampoos, but no other shampoo has the active ingredients we have in our shampoo. The rosemary will boost the health of the hair and scalp, while the other seven herbal extracts will help strengthen the hair and make it shine, increase the volume and make it manageable.
  • Rosemary hair treatment conditioner
    • We have found that this hair conditioner should really be used as a conditioning treatment. This then removes the need to condition the hair every time you wash – and can be used once a month. It is a superb hair tonic and helps in the control of sebum secretion of the scalp. Although not formulated for dandruff – the ingredients will assist with this as well, while supporting the health of the scalp.


Specialized herbal gels and lotions

  • Hand and body lotion
    • When formulating this hand and body lotion we created a rich nourishing, protecting and reviving lotion, which will not leave the skin oily or tacky, but will create a well moisturized, hydrated and supple skin. After applying this lotion it will quickly be absorbed by the skin, leaving it silky soft, smooth and well moisturized.
  • Stretch mark gel
    • Although nothing can remove already formed stretch marks (only surgery can do that) – thousands of satisfied clients confirm that this gel improves the appearance of old stretch marks. The gel will help in PREVENTING stretch marks (a 92% success rate) and is used with great success by expectant mothers and body builders who may form marks when bulking-up. The formula of this gel is based on clinical studies done in France, to which we added other herbal extracts.
