Default Food and inflammation


This is a good site. If you have arthritis, or FM or some other inflammatory disease, this is interesting reading.

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.

Thanks for posting that, Anne.

When I totally changed my way of eating about 5 years ago, I didn't realize that my very strict interpretation of Sugarbuster's was an anti-inflammatory diet. After a a few weeks, and upping my exercise levels, I found my FM pain and flares were pretty much gone. I told my rheumatologist that I'd found the cure for FM! I also went off my meds, and proved myself wrong. BUT, I continue to eat that way and have had very few flares or pain in the last five years.

I can pretty much assure myself of a painful flare by eating a sugary, wheat-laden meal, or something like a pizza. So there are LOTS of reasons for keeping a clean, sugar-free diet!
