Ask Dr. Marks: 03/03

Ive heard its important for people with arthritis to take plenty of vitamin C and/or vitamin E. Is this true? Research has been published on both sides of the issue.

Mediterranean Diet: A Tasty Way To Ease Arthritis Pain

The evidence is in.The Medi-terranean diet is not only healthy for your heart. It also lessens the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. But it can take up to three months for the diet to take effect. Not a diet in the strictest sense, but a loose term that describes the eating habits of people in the Mediterranean region, the easy-to-follow plan consists largely of fruits, beans, vegetables, olive oil, canola oil and fish, the latter containing omega-3…
