6 Herbs and Spices for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease of inflammation, so adding anti-inflammatory herbs and spices to your diet might sound like a good idea. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), there's not enough evidence to support the use of particular herbs or spices as effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. That being said, a number of herbs and spices do have anti-inflammatory properties however, and, at the very least, adding them to your recipes will liven up your meals. Here are 6 herbs and spices worthy of your consideration.

The amazing health benefits of turmeric

Aside from the holistic health community, Western medical practitioners have only recently come on board in recognizing the benefits of turmeric.

Turmeric, an orange-colored spice imported from India, is part the ginger family and has been a staple in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking for thousands of years.

Natural Remedies for Arthritis


Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the United States, limiting the activities of nearly 21 million adults, according to the CDC. Those with arthritis, though, don’t have to be slaves to their genetics or gym injuries; there are several natural arthritis remedies to help heal joint pain and inflammation.

Foods to Avoid with Arthritis

Arthritis is a general term encompassing conditions that share joint pain and inflammation. Typical treatment involves pain-reducing medication. While there is no definitive arthritis diet, research suggests including anti-inflammatory foods in your diet and limiting foods that may trigger joint pain.

Chocolate Against Inflammation

Chocolate's superfood cred just got a whole lot stronger:

Two new studies reveal chocolate's soothing effect on inflammation and its heart-protective properties.

The benefits of chocolate, say experts, may start in your gut. When you swallow that sweet bite of chocolatey goodness, the good microbes in your stomach essentially feast on the chocolate, letting them grow and ferment which then produces anti-inflammatory compounds. When these antioxidant compounds are absorbed, they were found to calm inflammation throughout the body--especially in cardiovascular tissue, which may reduce the long-term risk of stroke, according to research presented yesterday at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.


While there’s no cure for RA, eating certain foods can help you manage its symptoms.

People with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a chronic, painful, inflammatory disease that affects joints and connective tissue, are constantly seeking to ease its symptoms with food and dietary supplements. While researchers have turned up no magic elixir to cure RA, several studies seem to show a connection between certain foods and the inflammation that characterizes this autoimmune condition. Before embarking on a special diet or taking supplements, though, consult your doctor. Either approach can interact with traditional RA medications in unintended ways.
