Diet for Osteoarthritis

Diet of a patient suffering from Osteoarthritis should be freshly cooked and served hot. Soups of lentils, pulses, and meat should be taken by adding ginger and black pepper. Ghee and Oils are necessary for diet as they provide the lubrication to the joints and help in the smooth functioning of joints. The patient should avoid fried, sour and pungent foods as these cause damage to the degenerated joints.
