Autoimmune disorders are conditions in which the body literally fights itself and causes disease. You can treat arthritis and other autoimmune disorders through diet. Here's how.
Avoid wheat products. Many people even like to avoid gluten, a wheat byproduct. Check labels carefully. Wheat and gluten are in many products and come under many names.
Eat whole grains such as quinoa, buckwheat, brown rice and millet.
Step up your intake of fruits and vegetables. Plan your main meals around vegetables. Eat about 80% vegetables, fruits and grains, and 20% protein.
Eat healthy fats. Use olive oil, avocado oil or coconut oil for cooking. Avoid fried foods.
Eat fish. Fish contains omega 3s and if eaten at least once a week can improve your overall health.
Drink plenty of water. Many people are dehydrated and don't even know it. A good rule of thumb is to drink as many ounces as you carry in body weight a day. Water is especially important in the morning and helps eliminate toxins.
