" I have a book called the food bible by Gillian McKeith. It has great tips for all sorts of problems. She list Osteoarthritis seperatley to Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Both types she says have different foods that triggers inflamation and avoiding them is as important as eating the good stuff.

What type do you have?

" OK it says for Osteo.

Avoid cold and damp- you probably knew that already

Focus on :-
oily fish - samon, mackerel, sardines, pilchards, herrings, trout & halibut.
nuts & seeds especially walnuts, pumpkin seeds, flax, hemp and their cold-pressed oils,
Fruits:- these are high in anti inflamatory nutrients and can help alkalize the body. Aethritis is often a sign of acidity in the tissues. Eat two to three pieces of fruit a day between meals on an empty stomach.
Vegetables:- these are also alkalizing and anti-inflammatory. Eat two to three portions of vegetables with lunch and dinner. Some should be eaten raw.
Sulphur-rich foods:- to repair damage and aid absorbtion, asparagus, eggs, garlic and onions
Green vegetables for vitamin K and folic acid.
Whole grains, such as brown rice, whole wheat and rye to remove excess metals from the body. Those with arthritis often have high levels of copper and iron.
Fresh Pineapple, which contains the enzyme bromelain can help reduce inflammation, Eat the core of the pineapple as this is where most of the enzymes lie.
Fibre from whole grains, flax seeds and pulses as this removes waste from the body.
AVOID!!!!
white potatoes, peppers, chillies, aubergines, tomatoes and tabacco. These members of the nightshade family contain solanine which can promote inflammation.
Wheat, dairy foods, eggs and chocolate to which you may be intolerant ( I'm just copying out the book not sure why eggs are listed as a + & - food).

Saturated fat from meat & dairy products can have an inflammatory effect . Especiall avoid processed meats such as ham, bacon, salami, sausages, burgers and pepperoni.
Tea, coffee, wine and spinach can contain oxalic acid which can increase acidity and worsen inflammation.
Salt, sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed foods can also be detrimental to health and can increase weight inflammation.

There is another page of stuff on herbs etc. but my fingers are sore.
Hope this helps a little.
