It is smart to eat fish, especially fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring and tuna, at least two or three times a week. Research shows that eating just an ounce of fish a day may help restore our cells to healthy functioning, saving countless people from disability and premature death.

Here is a list of disorders that fish oil may alleviate or prevent:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis – Reduces joint pain, soreness, stiffness, fatigue.
  • Heart attacks – Cuts the odds of subsequent heart attacks by one third.
  • Clogged arteries – Keeps arteries open and clear. Reduces risk of reclosure of arteries after angioplasty surgery by 40 to 50 percent
  • High Blood Pressure – Eliminates or reduces the need for pharmaceutical pressure-lowering medications.
  • Ulcerative colitis (inflammatory bowel disease) – In one test, eating 4.5 grams of fish oil a day (equal to that in 7 ounces of mackerel) for 8 months depressed disease activity by 56 percent. Another test reduced need for prednisone, a steroid, by one third.
  • Psoriasis – Reduces itching, redness, pain in some patients, and cuts the amount of medication needed.
  • Multiple Sclerosis – Helps reduce symptoms in some patients.
  • Asthma – Curtails attacks in some individuals.
  • Migraine Headaches – Lessens severity and frequency in some sufferers.

"Diet has the distinction of being the only major determinant of health that is completely under your control. You have the final say over what does and what does not go into your mouth and stomach. You cannot always control the other determinants of health, such as the quality of the air you breathe, the noise you are subjected to, or the emotional climate of your suroundings, but you can control what you eat. It is a shame to squander such a good opportunity to influence your health." ~Andrew Weil, MD
