Healing from the inside out
Your diet and the food you eat impacts your condition. A healthy eating plan can greatly reduce the painful symptoms of arthritis and other autoimmune conditions – reducing inflammation and supporting medications and other treatments. Arnold Arthritis & Rheumatology has a certified nutritionist consultant to help patients maintain diets and introduce doctor-approved, Theralogix supplements that can help fight inflammation, strengthen bones and boost the immune system. Our nutritionist works one-on-one with you in a location of your choice.
As a part of our commitment to individualized patient care we offer weight loss counseling.
Weight loss is not always as simple as eating less and exercising more. We know that fat cells (adipose tissue) creates inflammation. In our all our patients with arthritis this addition inflammation makes our medicines less effective. Extra weight also puts more strain in the joints wearing them down faster.
We offer weight loss medical treatment built on lifestyle and behavior modification, exercise counseling, nutrition education, and pharmacologic therapy. This intensive therapy is usually covered by your insurance provider and individualized to each patient. Addressing weight loss allows us to help you address the many aspects contributing to your overall health.
