Arthritis: Try dietary changes. There are forms of arthritis that respond to the restriction of certain things in the diet such as "nightshade arthritis", etc. Check out dr ronald hoffman. He is an amazing source of knowledge on diet and how it affects the body. Hope this helps.

RA patients should be very wary. There is no scientific data that diets prevent joint damage.
