Arthritis is a terrible condition that affects millions of people of all ages around the world and in some cases, even children.
It is manifested by inflammation in the joints and debilitating pain. Other common symptoms include stiffness, reduced range of motion and swelling.
A report from the Disease Control and Prevention Centers states that around 52.5 million adults and 300.000 children have been diagnosed with some kind of arthritis in the period of 2010 to 2012.
It is also expected that there will be around 78 million people who will suffer from arthritis by 2040.
The intensity of the arthritis can range from mild to severe. Severe arthritis greatly interferes with the daily activities of the affected person, making it difficult to climb stairs and walk.
There are more than 100 types of arthritis that include gout, rheumatism and fibromyalgia, but rheumatoid and osteoarthritis are the most common types.
Susie is a woman who suffered from arthritis. As soon as a weather change was about to happen, her hands started swelling. She managed to fight arthritis and restore her body to its optimal condition by making a simple lifestyle change. She stopped consuming dairy products like milk and other products that contain animal proteins.
She followed this diet plan and after two months she noticed improvements, because she was no longer feeling pain. “My body feels brand new” she says.
She says that everyone who is suffering from arthritis, must avoid meat and dairy products, because animal proteins have a great impact on the acidity levels of the body.
Imbalanced pH levels in the body is one of the main reasons for arthritis. Susie also says that it is very important to maintain a healthy body weight and to be physically active.
