Joint repair is one of the many benefits of avocado

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Flu Remedies(NaturalHealth365) If you suffer with arthritis – I suggest you look at the many health benefits of avocado. The truth is our joints are built to last – all the days of our life – without giving us pain. Obviously, a healthy diet is essential to live pain free.

Avocados contain antioxidant-rich monounsaturated oils; essential fatty acids and vitamin E – which can promote the repair of cartilage. In addition, avocados have potassium; vitamins B and E; and fiber – plus they’re delicious!

Change your diet and eliminate physical pain – forever

Many (natural) health experts recommend the consumption of avocados as part of a healthy diet. Just one avocado per day provides phytosterols – which inhibit the absorption of cholesterol; lutein for healthy eyes and skin; and, of course, vitamin C, manganese, selenium, zinc plus many other life-supportive nutrients. Isn’t it great to see how nature provides everything we really need?

The interesting way avocado prevents both osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is by preventing pro-inflammatory prostaglandin E2 synthesis within the connective tissue. French studies found that avocado oil can relieve OA pain; stimulate cartilage repair; and lower a patient’s need for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. On your next medical appointment – you may want to talk to your doctor about reducing pain with healthy foods.

Health tip – if your physician gives you a blank stare or nasty comment about its validity – find another doctor!

Patients are demanding more from their doctors

More and more health-conscious consumers are demanding a greater selection of natural solutions for their health concerns. Physicians must remember that part of the (original) Hippocratic oath said, “first, do no harm”. Today, too many conventional medications are toxic and life threatening.

A basic guide to picking the best avocado

Ripe, read-to-eat fruit will be firm yet will yield to gentle pressure. Look for fruits with even skin color and without blemishes or bruises. The Hass variety of avocado will turn darker as they ripen, but other varieties do not change from the bright green color.

One of the most versatile fruits on the market – avocado offers many great ways to get them into your diet such as, salads, smoothies or puddings.

Want a great pudding recipe? Take one soft ripe avocado; 1 teaspoon of vanilla; ¼ cup of organic cocoa power; about 6 tablespoons of coconut oil; almond or rice milk and a sweetener of your choice like, maple syrup or stevia.

Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the inside. Place the avocado in a blender along with the other ingredients; process until smooth and serve or refrigerate. I, personally use the Blendtec blender – but Vitamix is a good blender as well. It can’t get any easier than that and the best part is you don’t have to be an avocado lover to enjoy this tasty treat.

    Hi, That recipe sounds great but it doesn’t say how much milk or sweetener to use. The sweetener may be to ones taste, but for the milk think I would need a good idea of how much to use to get the right consistency. Thanks!

    Mash whole avocado. Finely chop a few baby tomatoes with one small red onion and a little fresh red chili [optional ]. Spread on buttered whole meal toast and eat. Yummy!

    Avocado uses.
    Creamed Dairy and gflour free spinach.

    Cook your spinach as per usual. Save any cooking water for soups.
    Fry 1 large onion in butter or ghee until soft.
    Place hot spinach, onions and avocado in food processor and serve.
    My daughter who refused to eat spinach is now a number one fan.

    Creamy soup.
    Make any soup from scratch. I.e. Boil bones, salt pepper leek and celery leaves. To get the best out of broth, boil the bones on a very low heat for many hours before adding any vegetables. Then add any vegetables of your choice. i.e. cauliflower. Place in blender add avocado, blend and serve. Delicious and again dairy and gluten free.

    Often when I come home from running,I slice an avocado in half, twist it and take out the pit, then dice the flesh in the shell with a sharp knife, making it easy to scoop it out of the shell with a spoon. Then I slice a banana in half and dice that into the bowl. Add a little Manuka honey ( or other sweetener)and a few walnuts and you’re good to go. At 68, I have more energy than the younger ones and it’s all because of good food like Avocadoes

  • ann

    this article is very helpful in knowing the benefits of certain fruits and herb and vegetable that we take for granted,it also helps us to know the healing process is always through the right food and not pharmacuticals,because i have been going to the philopinnes every year for a eight week holiday for almost nineteen years and my doctor kept insisting that i take malaria tablets for the mosquito’s so about eight years ago i looked at what food the local people consumed that keeps the mosquito’s away,and found that many of them eat a kind of vegatable called a bitter melon or gourd which is called karela in india,from the ampaylaya bush and it contains massive amounts of varying types of vitamin b so i started to eat a lot of it uncooked with a morning and evening salad,over the next month i noticed that was not beeing bitten by any insects,so i concluded that my body ferrymones and general odour had changed and acted as a reppelant,but it would only stay that way as long as i used very little deoderant.i also felt a lot better because most malaria tablets contain too much quinine and that can only do you a lot of harm.

    Did you know that if you have iron deficiency, 3+ avocados a week for a couple of weeks will restore iron to normal

    One of my favorite breakfasts is to fry 2 slices uncured, hormone free bacon until cripsy, then saute some spinach, tomato, and pine nuts in the same pan until spinach is soft. Then I cook 2 over-easy eggs, put the spinach mixture on a plate, place the eggs on top with a sliced avocado and grate some really good raw milk cheddar over all. Delicious and filling! I love all the ways you can add avocados to other foods, but my favorite way to eat them is sliced with fresh lemon or lime juice and Herbamare organic seasoning. I’ve gotten people who said they didn’t like avocados switched over by just doing that.
