Arthritis Is Caused By Your Stupid Diet

Arthritis is reoccurring joint pain. Pain in a joint often. From a joint, pain emanates regularly.

It sounds simple enough, yah? Nope.

According to the Arthritis Foundation (not like those clowns know anything about it) there are over 100 types of arthritis that result from fuck all. You've got your rainstorm arthritis, your dairy-based arthritis, your bones are fucked up arthritis, and 97+ more.

I like that the Arthritis Foundation says that, on the one hand, "There is no cure for arthritis..." and on the other hand "...arthritis is an umbrella term for over 100 conditions, disorders, and diseases..." In other words, when medical people talk about arthritis, they don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

The thing is, different types of arthritis have different causes, yah? Genetic, lifestyle, environmental, act of God, etc. Also, "reoccurring joint pain" is kind of a vague symptom. Maybe that's why 1-in-5 adults have it. Maybe that's why 300,000+ kids have it. Maybe that's why the Arthritis Foundation says that it's the #1 "cause of disability" in the United States. Because it's actually a category and not an actual thing.

It's like Metabolic Syndrome. Have you heard of this? Somebody realized that 100 people become obese, they are at a higher risk for developing the same conditions. Fucked up glucose, insulin, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. Dude was all like, "Shit, man. We should call this something. Cuz it's all like, something, man."

There are famous types of arthritis that are due to, you know, whatever. But! If you don't have one of those, if you just have reoccurring joint pain, try taking a look at your stupid ass diet.

***Anecdote***

Some years ago I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Basically, in me there is a connection between joint pain and dandruff. Fantastic and sexy. And at the Arthritis Treatment Center in Frederick, MD I was given Vioxxx, an MRI, and told that I needed surgery on my right knee. I was kind of on board until someone behind the counter acted like a dickhead and I never went back, sulking at home in the dark (customer service, people, come on).

I don't remember how, but I eventually went to a nutritionist for something else. That dude suggested that I might be having a reaction to wheat. I cut it from my diet and what do you know? My arthritis was cured! Yeah, as long as I eat very little wheat, I have zero joint pain. If I eat a sandwich two days in a row, I get sore knees. How about that shit?

So really, take a look at your stupid diet. It might just cure your arthritis.
