DESCRIPTION: Dietary changes may help alleviate or reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis.

Foods rich in antioxidants - plentifully found in most vegetables and fruit - may help reduce tissue damage from inflammation. Eat oily fish such as salmon, or try another source of omega-3 fatty acids such as walnuts or freshly ground flax seed daily.Regularly use ginger and turmeric. Ginger tea is a good example. Eat generous amounts of organically grown vegetables and fruit every day.
