Rheumatoid Arthritis

Recent post

Clinical studies have shown supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids (as in fish oil) can reduce swollen and tender joints in rheumatoid arthritis.  Omega 3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect.  Omega-3 fatty acids protect against cardiovascular disease and play an important role in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease.  If you have rheumatoid arthritis, ask your practitioner about supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids.  To be effective, omega-3 fatty acids must be dosed properly, with a pharmacy-grade supplement and at least over the course of three months.  At Modern Health, we offer an omega index test to measure one’s omega-3 fatty acid level.  Omega 3 fatty acid food sources include Atlantic salmon, herring, mackerel, and sardines (3 ounces), flaxseed (1 Tbsp), chia seeds (2 Tbsp), and walnuts (14 halves).
