I have a friend that recently disclosed that they experiencing some issues that sound to be dietary related. Or perhaps their cures are. The person is seeing a nutritionist that I know so I'm feeling good about the information they are getting. I did want to provide some links as well and decided to do it via this blog so others might see it as well.
In general, I strongly recommend nutritionfacts.org. This site contains work by Dr. Greger to review various scientific data "so you don't have to". You'll get that if you watch this behmoth of a video which is over an hour long. And the content, oh my. It's incredibly informative, but it's long. The video is called Food as Medicine and was released on August 23rd, 2015.
So one of the issues that my friend indicated was Rheumatoid Arthritis. Not surprisingly, Dr. Gregor has quite a few videos/articles just on that topic.
- Why do plant based diets help rheumatoid arthritis(Video)
- The Spice That Helps Ease Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain(Article)
- Turmeric Curcumin and Rheumatoid Arthritis(Video)
I'm sure there is more but that's a great place to start.
Some other websites I'd check out would be Forks Over Knives, T. Colin Campbell Center from Nutrition Studies, Dr. Esselstyn.com (last links are the main characters of the Forks Over Knives documentary), Dr. McDougall’s Health and Medical Center. For now that's enough.
Good luck on your journey friend and you can always reach out with questions, comments, about going with a whole foods, plant based diet. It's worked for me and I hope it works just as great for you.
