What is inflamed? Wouldn't it be more sensible to find out from your doctor what it is and what is causing it and then act accordingly?


I have gone to multiple doctors and specialists. I am acting accordingly by going on this diet. I'm also on multiple medications.

I don't feel comfortable posting what's wrong with me, since it's none of your business but an anit-inflammatory and low sodium diet helps the side effects. :D I'm going to school to become an RD, I know some about it already, I was just wondering what others have used to help. :)


I asked a reasonable question - no need to be rude. Good luck with cutting all that out of your diet.


That's a very reasonable question. Sara was right asking it.

Instead of asking online from people with 0 knowledge on your problems and 0 knowledge in medical field, you should ask your doctor what kind of diet to follow.

Depending on your condition garlic can be good with inflammation, or can be very bad and cause a more serious problem. The same with some fresh fruits or veggies.


Ok people, all I was asking is for people who FOLLOW an anti-inflammation diet what they eat! There are different fruits, vegetables, grains etc to eat that will help with inflammation. I was wondering what some of those are! Goodness. I've gone to doctors AND specialists and they told me to follow the "anti-inflammation diet" by Dr. Weil. I was curious if there were any other things that were not mentioned on his diet plan. I should of mentioned that, I just didn't think this was going to be a big to-do!


What's wrong with you? Your doctor prescribed you a certain diet already, so just follow it. Don't ask unknown strangers how to help with your unknown disease! We are not your doctors and don't know your conditions!

What do you want to hear? You should eat chocolate filled donuts as the new recent research of Swedesh scientist proves its the best anti inflammatory product out there. It helps with inflammation of everything, one big magical product.
Now will you follow it or your doctors suggestion?


Mmmm...donuts.


Research shows donuts are necessary if you want to build strong muscles. No donuts, no muscles.
Trust me.

I'm not asking for medical advice, I'm asking for suggestions. Does that mean I'm going to follow every suggestion? NO!

I don't see why I need to keep explaining myself when I posted this out of pure curiosity!

After spending a few hours checking out the message boards on MFP I realise that it's just a place where people with an axe to grind look for ways to put others down. I, for one, was quite interested in reading how others interpret 'anti-inflammatory' and what sort of things they eat - irrespective of my medical history or theirs. Great that some try to add humour to what was becoming an inflammatory situation... OP hope you got something that helped you. Would be interested to hear how you get on smile

Hello,

I wrote a 416 page book on the Anti-inflammatory diet called Meals That Heal Inflammation. It has a fantastic 16 page chart that details how certain foods inflame your body and how healing foods can reduce inflammation- www.juliedaniluk.com


Here are the basics:

Ditch the flour and sugar

White flour, a simple carbohydrate, breaks down into sugar right in your mouth with the help of digestive enzymes, so save your sweets for special treats.

And high amounts of sugar in the diet increase advanced glycation end-products, or AGEs, a protein bound to a glucose molecule, resulting in damaged, cross-linked proteins.


2. Avoid allergy foods

Eating foods that you are allergic to destabilizes your insulin and causes poor blood sugar levels, which leads to greater inflammation. Common allergens include wheat, gluten, corn, dairy, sugar and potatoes.

3. Eat 7 veggies

Red radishes, orange yams, purple cabbage and dark-green veggies are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants that dampen inflammation. Focus on cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, etc.), which are loaded with Indole 3 Carbonol.

4. Eat lean protein sources

Beans, chicken, turkey and wild game (elk, emu, bison, etc.) are great sources of lean protein.

5. Give yourself an oil change Avoid refined trans-fat, omega-6 oil (soy, corn and cottonseed oil) in cooking and use more olive oil. Olive oil is a great source of oleic acid, making it a powerful anti-inflammatory oil.

Choose grass fed livestock, flax, chia and hemp seeds, wild salmon (not farmed) or smaller coldwater fish such as herring, sardines and mackerel are your best choices for high-powered, anti-inflammatory foods.

I'm about to embark on a paleo autoimmune approach. A *lot* of it is geared toward anti-inflammatory foods which is very important to me. Feel free to add me if you want! PaleoMom.com has some amazing information for starters - I highly recommend checking out some of her articles.


One of my co-workers recommended that to me. I have bone marrow edema and I was thinking of eating anti-inflammatory diet to see if it helped with my pain.

I have what is typically known as the beginning stage of Lupus. I have recently started incorporating more anti inflammatory foods to my diet to help manage pain, and I honestly believe they work as my pain level is not as bad when I eat them, and I can also say that it is worse when I eat things that are on the inflammatory list.

My dr and I discussed diet as part of managing my pain instead of a host of prescription medications. I drink a cup of green tea a day with about a tablespoon of grated frozen ginger in it (freezing it makes the ginger grate easier) and I eat some type of berries every day. Green leafy vegetables are a must, such as kale and collards. If I am in a situation where I must eat something that is prepackaged or packed with preservatives, I swear I feel it. I think eating a diet of foods as close to their natural state as possible has helped me in many ways.

I am of the belief that we are here on this earth to help each other. I do not mind sharing my business with other people if it can help them. I live in chronic pain. If there is anyone out there that is in the same situation and would like to talk about it, feel free to message me. I really do not think many people that do not have chronic pain cant truly understand it.

I can't find any scientific evidence for anti-inflammatory foods.
Do you have any controlled studies we could reference?

If you had chronic pain, you would have evidence. wink

I can say for a fact that what has been said above works for me. Maybe not everyone, but it does for me. I can especially tell when I eat the foods to avoid.

If you are not in any pain, count yourself blessed. If you are, then try this diet to see for yourself how you feel. If you are just wanting to spout the "scientific evidence blah blah blah", that is rude, there are people in pain here. We will do what ever we can to not hurt so bad, ALL THE TIME.

I suffered from chronic pain and inflammation for years. I couldn't function at all and life was hell. I was diagnosed with diabetes, so had to have a complete rethink of my entire diet. I ditched all carbs except complex ones in fruit, veg etc, and even then reduced my fruit to just berries, and veg grown above ground. I cut out all flour except nut flours, cut out fast and processed foods. From having ankles and knees that were so swollen I could barely put pants on, the swelling was so bad, and the pain unbelievable just having fabric pulling tight on the joints, I am now wearing skinny jeans, pull on ankle boots, and can walk for miles and exercise. I do eat dairy, as I have no allergies to it, but by cutting out all the foods that did cause problems, I have transformed my life.

I hope you find a way to treat your inflammation no matter where or what it is, it can be so debilitating and rob you of a normal life. Good luck.

Hello,

I wrote a 416 page book on the Anti-inflammatory diet called Meals That Heal Inflammation. It has a fantastic 16 page chart that details how certain foods inflame your body and how healing foods can reduce inflammation- www.juliedaniluk.com


Here are the basics:

Ditch the flour and sugar

White flour, a simple carbohydrate, breaks down into sugar right in your mouth with the help of digestive enzymes, so save your sweets for special treats.

And high amounts of sugar in the diet increase advanced glycation end-products, or AGEs, a protein bound to a glucose molecule, resulting in damaged, cross-linked proteins.


2. Avoid allergy foods

Eating foods that you are allergic to destabilizes your insulin and causes poor blood sugar levels, which leads to greater inflammation. Common allergens include wheat, gluten, corn, dairy, sugar and potatoes.

3. Eat 7 veggies

Red radishes, orange yams, purple cabbage and dark-green veggies are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants that dampen inflammation. Focus on cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, etc.), which are loaded with Indole 3 Carbonol.

4. Eat lean protein sources

Beans, chicken, turkey and wild game (elk, emu, bison, etc.) are great sources of lean protein.

5. Give yourself an oil change Avoid refined trans-fat, omega-6 oil (soy, corn and cottonseed oil) in cooking and use more olive oil. Olive oil is a great source of oleic acid, making it a powerful anti-inflammatory oil.

Choose grass fed livestock, flax, chia and hemp seeds, wild salmon (not farmed) or smaller coldwater fish such as herring, sardines and mackerel are your best choices for high-powered, anti-inflammatory foods.


Woot, this is a GREAT post!!! I could have wrote this same book and my suggestions were going to be similar.

I might add that nightshade vegetables can also be a source of great inflammation. I know they are for me dealing with Fibromyalgia, PCOS, T2 Diabetes, and Hypo-Thyroid.

I was on the Atkins Nutritonal Approach and found that when I added in legumes, grains, dairy that I had various health related issues to arise..........

I transitioned over to Paleo and those issues for the most part went away. I was still dealing with some muscular and joint pains due to the Fibromyalgia and started leaving out the peppers and tomatoes that I love so much and those issues went away also.

I can't find any scientific evidence for anti-inflammatory foods.
Do you have any controlled studies we could reference?


That is the major thing wrong with Western Medicine and thinking..............everything has to be rooted in science, peer reviewed, etc.

I prefer to go back to the mindset of the Indians and the Acient Orient (Eastern Medicine) in which they relied on Nature and the healing energies of Mother Earth. When I was suffering from pnuemonia and pluerisy a few weeks ago the Dr could NOT get the congestion to go away for nothing. I was on steroids and asthma inhalers (I don't have asthma). My sister suggested this tea made by Nuwati Herbals..........called The Healer tea. Within 5 days my congestion was completely gone.

Sometimes nature works way better than science.

When nourishing and caring for the body properly using positive energies, eating nourishing foods, Love, Play, Rest the body can and will heal itself with no pharmaceutical intervention.

My friend is on an anti-inflammatory diet and she lives by garlic and ginger. I guess I should pay attention to what else she eats, but those are definite staples in her diet. It's always fresh ginger, btw. She makes tea, shreds it into most stove-top dishes, and her protein shakes.


I don't see much ginger around here, I'll look for it!!


wal-mart has it. (it's buy the lettuce and stuff)

I wish that my body would have healed itself Paleo Path. ohwell That is very true for some, but, not all. I had taken sublingual St. John's Wort and other natural teas for 1 year when suffering from Post~Partum years ago and I plummeted so far that they almost had to admit me. Once I was given a "Western" medicine for depression I was back to my old self with in 2 weeks and was a happy camper for my family. I WISHED that Eastern medicine would have worked for me and I am so glad it worked for you! Blessings!flowerforyou

In my opinion, St. Johns Wort is dangerous and no one should be taking it! St. Johns Wort is not meant for long term, only for a couple of weeks. I'm sorry you had to go through that!
