I went on the Arthritis/Bursitis diet in 2005 and haven't been troubled since. But I do have to stick on the diet, if I stray too much (like on vacation) I'll feel it coming back.

A doctor gave me this diet. I'm not giving medical advice here, but if you want to try it, here it is. It took about 2 months for it to work for me.
For both arthritis and bursitis, treatment is similar:

Try the dietary approach first, and if that doesn't work, take stronger action.

Foods that may contribute to chronic inflammation are foods with a high glycemic index (foods that convert to sugar quickly), such as fruit juices, sugars, simple starches, or rice cakes, foods heavy in polyunsaturated or saturated fats, and foods high in arachidonic acid. Some specific foods to avoid are:

* Fatty cuts of red meat (high in saturated fats) lean is good
* Organ meats: liver, kidney, and so forth (very high in arachidonic acid)
* Egg yolks (very high in arachidonic acid)
* Poultry - chicken, duck, turkey (very high in arachidonic acid)
* Pasta (high glycemic index)
* Juices (high glycemic index)
* Rice, especially rice cakes (high glycemic index)
* White bread (substitute whole grain breads such as rye)
* Nightshade Plants bother many people (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, peppers, paprika)

Glycemic index charts can be found on the Internet.

Better choices are foods with a low glycemic index and foods that are heavy in monounsaturated fats. Some specific good foods are:

* Salmon and other fish
* Oatmeal
* Low glycemic fresh fruits and vegetables
* Olives and olive oil
* Peanuts and other nuts
* Whey proteins
* Lean beef is good, 100% grass fed is better

You're welcome, Jean

I've been on this diet since about 2005 and am 99% pain free.

If I slip off a tiny bit (have a boiled egg or something) it makes no difference. But if I go off too much, like when I'm on vacation, I can feel the pain coming back, so I know I've been 'bad'.

That doesn't happen often though, I only go on vacation once a year, and haven't been since COVID.

But when I'm in a different country, I do want to sample what they have to offer.

Bob
