Where can Omega 3 be found?
In my research, one of the many suggestions I found to help with inflammation was fish. Particularly, those rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Such as mackerel, salmon, tuna, halibut, herring, and cod. I do believe most of these kinds of fish are cold water fish. And I have read where wild fish, and not farm raised fish are best for Omega 3 fatty acids.
But what if you don’t like fish?? That is the case for me. When I was younger I did. I loved tuna and halibut. But, as an adult, do not care for fish, at all. So, what about supplements??
Supplements to the rescue. And most are cheaper than any prescription I’ve ever gotten from a doctor, to help with my psoriatic arthritis inflammation.
I take fish oil supplements daily. It is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which the body then converts into anti-inflammatory chemicals. If I can reduce the inflammation that is going on in my body, I can reduce the pain as well. Less inflammation equals less pain. And all from taking a fish oil supplement daily!
Not Just Psoriatic Arthritis
Fish oil has been known to possibly help with other health issues such as:
- Blood pressure
- Blood clots
- Supports eye health
- Help fight autoimmune diseases
- May help prevent cancer
- Risk factors for heart disease
- May reduce liver fat
- Bone health
I could go on and on with this list. Fish oil may and in some cases, can help with many other health issues. The list is truly tremendous.
The Bottom Line
The fact is fish oil helps me with my inflammation. Did it cure me? No, we all know that right now there is no cure for Psoriatic Arthritis. But it has helped me to take back some control, over my own health. Maybe it could help you as well. Do keep in mind, just like prescribed drugs, as well as those of us dealing with PsA, what may work for me, may not work for you. Finding out what works for you, is what matters most.
The tremendous amount of research I have done was weeding through what worked for me, and what didn’t work for me. My doctors in the past had to do the very same thing with prescription drugs. I’m sure many of you know what I am talking about. All the scripts written, and then filled–at my cost, only to take, and wind up not working. Even in some cases, the side effects made me feel even worse!
