Early this year, I started developing rapid onset of rheumatoid arthritis. The pain started on 2 of joints in my right hand before spreading to my left hand. When it started to spread to my toes, it really got my attention. I started researching into emotional factors and managed to identify the emotional triggers that caused my own immune system attacking the joints on my hands.
It would probably not come as a surprise that if you have rheumatoid arthritis, some of your favourite food may be part of the triggers for your inflammation and joint pain. It is tough but is necessary for you to give up food that would harm you. If you speak to a doctor who is practicing conventional medicine, the doctor would tell you that you can eat anything but perhaps you may need to avoid seafood and duck meat. Things like eggs and poultry are not in the list but in traditional Chinese medicine, these are food known to trigger inflammation.
