I try to follow Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Joel Fuhrman food recommendations. Dr. Weil still allows gluten. I'm still on the fence about that.

There's also something called "The Plan". I don't know much about it, but some people in the anti-inflammatory sparkteam advocate it. In a nutshell, certain food sensitivities can lead to inflammation and "The Plan" teaches you how to figure this out.

Personally, I found that removing all processed foods (and limiting red meat and sugar) has helped to reduce pain in my joints.

Edit: the team is called Challenged by Arthritis.

My best advise is keep moving, being a couch potato is one of the worst things you can do.

I'm 49 years old and relatively new to the diagnosis of arthritis.
Last year an x-ray showed arthritis in the right hip, I may also be getting complaints in my right hand.

I wonder if you would share your best tips for dealing with this? I'd be grateful!
