A PSA for Ye Fellow Arthritis Folks

Rain going right to your knees, bunky?  You're walking along or standing and you get the old screwdriver to the back of the knee or...it feels like your knees are in a vice?  Yow!  Better yet you're walking along and a sharp electric jolt goes through the entire knee and eeek...it's Facetime with you and the ground.


Remember when you were a kid and some crone told you they could feel a storm coming on in their knees or hands and you thought oooohhhh cool.  Nope.

Forget all those surgery dealies.  First up walk walk on those nasty boys.  Just in case you are carrying an extra pound or so it will help.  Also it will help keep your knee muscles from disintegrating like some alien nailed you with a death ray.



These food will help fight the inflammation that causes you to do the screwdriver to the knee shuffle:

Broccoli
Brussel Sprouts
Cauliflower
Blueberries
Strawberries
Tumeric
Ginger
Green Tea
Sweet Potatoes
Walnuts
Dark Leafy Greens

Assume all the foods you like are going to swell you up like a balloon:

Sugar
Wheat
Meat
Dairy Products

That should get you on the road to Knee Nirvana.
