What to eat for rheumatism
What problems should patients with rheumatism pay attention to in terms of diet?
First, the diet should be comprehensive, nutritionally balanced, and not partial.
In contrast, apart from gouty arthritis, there are not many taboos in the diet, such as the consumption of fruits, vegetables, fish, pork, fish oil, vitamins, and honey to facilitate the overall absorption of nutrients.
The main choices are high-protein, high-vitamin and easy-to-digest foods, reasonable nutritional matching and proper cooking to meet the nutritional and energy needs of patients and help to recover from diseases.
In general, it is not advisable to eat foods that are irritating, such as cold and spicy, especially for patients in the acute stage.
Some patients with rheumatism like to take some medicinal wine, thinking that wine has the effect of promoting blood circulation and removing stasis, and can relieve pain and swelling. In fact, this should be treated differently according to individual constitution and illness.
Alcohol is hot and can dispel dispersal of evil spirits. If it is cold or damp, or if it has cold and damp internal resistance, some medicinal wines can be mixed. In the south, the hot and humid is heavy. For patients with the phenomenon of hot and humid, it is not appropriate to drink alcohol, becauseAlcoholism was originally hot and humid, which severely hurt the liver and wet the spleen. If immersed in hot medicine such as aconite, Chuanwu, and Asarum, it will increase internal heat and swelling.
Carbohydrates and adults should also eat less, because long-term consumption of this type of food can easily damage the spleen and stomach, leading to the development of phlegm and aggravating the disease.
In addition, patients with joint swelling in the acute phase should use less salt than normal people, because too much salt will cause water and sodium retention, stagnation in the joints, and will increase the degree of joint swelling.
