For your arthritis and nutrition plan, check if there are any foods that you don't tolerate or digest well. Often these foods include dairy, wheat, some meats and any foods containing MSG. Be aware of your body and how you feel after eating any of these foods. Foods that you don't digest well are hard on the joints.
Eliminate refined and heated oils and replace them with healthy omega 3 fats. Heated and refined oils affect the lining of the intestine, while healthy fats are very beneficial to the intestinal wall.
Take a very high quality Omega 3 supplement.
Ensure that your blood sugar levels are stable. A high level of insuline in the blood found in a pre-diabetic condition or those with metabolic syndrome or syndrome X increases type 1 prostaglandins. This in turn increases inflammation in the body.
