There are many types of arthritis, and when one receives this diagnosis, it is generally referring to joint pain or joint disease. Common arthritis joint symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and worsen over time and with age. Interestingly, it is the leading cause of disability in the United States. In fact, arthritis can be so debilitating that a person may have difficulty in performing simple daily tasks such as self-care, cooking, or getting around. Often when people receive an arthritis diagnosis from their doctor, they accept it as inevitable or a natural part of the aging process. This might be true when you turn 80 or 90 years old. But prior to that, it’s completely manageable with lifestyle interventions.
First and foremost, at A to Zinc Nutrition, we recognize that at the most basic level, arthritis is inflammation in the joints. Reducing inflammation is what we specialize in, ultimately restoring joint function, and improving overall quality of life. We do this through a very specific and proven process using the MRT® (Mediator Release Test) to help identify the foods that are causing you inflammation. It measures your immune response to 140 foods and 30 chemicals. Working with a Certified LEAP Therapist will help you identify the foods to eat, the foods to avoid, and the strategies to make your eating plan successful. Most patients feel 25-75% better in as little as 14 days just by eating their least inflammatory foods.
