Anti-inflammatory diet

Aug 08, 2014 6:15 PM

I had gastric bypass surgery yrs ago. Although the drop in weight was great it has lead to several problems with possible treatments for arthritis and inflammation. I can not take anti inflammatory medications. Does anyone have info on anti inflammatory diet? Besides ice, I need to find a good anti inflammatory diet, and hope for the best.

The one I am trying is to cut out sugar, caffeine, dairy, gluten, corn, and soy. I know it seems like a lot and I am going step by step but the best diet that has worked for me is the low carb, high protein and cut out those I mentioned above. I know it's not easy but step by step

Thank you, it's not easy, nothing is easy. I am grasping at straws here. Thank you.

for me, it's important to try new things because I am sick and tired of being sick and tired! I used to be able to run nonstop and now I get winded after a few steps. good health and vibrancy and thriving in life is important to me so I am trying to adopt these changes to my diet a day at a time!

My daughter has cut out potatoes, tomatoes, and peppers and that has really helped with the inflammation.

Im in the same boat. I just started researching this to see what I can do to get the inflamation out of my hips and butt area caused by hip surgery and arthritis. Soo tired of the pain and discomfort

I am not sure about the anti-inflammatory diet however you may want to do some research on herbs that helps with inflammation. In fact, that is what I am planning to do in the near future is go with a natural / herbal route with pain and inflammation.

I use the blood type diet that fights inflammation. I am allergic to most grains and avoid wheat, rye, corn, barley and oats. Lamb calms the inflammation and Salmon is a staple. It helps to be able to cook

I'm not able to cook much but I've found some rice seems to work well, where as most meats and any wheat or sugar just make things flare up.

Same here... Tired of being sick and tired.. There are several things you can add to your diet that have anti-inflammatory properties. Dark leafy greens, legumes (beans) and also there are certain herbs like basil, sage, rosemary (all fresh, not dried and processed in bottles). I think I have the links on my Facebook page and when I get up, I'll go through my activity log and find the websites and/or articles and post them here for everyone. There is also a drink I make in my Nutra Bullet that is made specifically to address the inflammation in your body. Last time I had bloodwork, the doctor said that the inflammation levels were WAY high. As you have read above, try to stay away from processed sugars, caffeine, gluten, breads, rice, potatoes, etc. that should give you a bit of a better day. You have a lot of us here to chat with, vent to and just connect with. Hope this has been some help. Good Luck!!!

I think we're all sick & tired of being sick and tired. I actually cried yesterday coming home from my cardio stress test when I gave out of breath, and they wheelede out to the car because I didn't have the strength or breath to walk. I cried and told my husband, "I'm tired of bring sick & tired, and there's always something new being added on!"

Sorry for getting off topic. I have food allergies & IBS. Other than the gluten free diet, I'm looking into the FODMAP diet. Each letter after the "F-fermented" stands for specific types of sugars. Its aimed at IBS inflammation. I haven't started it yet because I'm trying to read through the book before I start over reading again & following the process. Its overwhelming for me concentrate & comprehend it all due to the fibro-fog & other cognitive issues going on. But what I've read so far makes total sense.

Just watch "Fat, sick and nearly dead" and keep an open mind. You don't have to jump off the deep end and attack me for juicing I do also eat but not anything that is GMO. I had a previous post with the above title and several people quickly posted negatives about juicing. But did they ever watch the movie....or add juicing to their diets. My muscle pain is better my pain flares are more weather related. I also have lots of metal over 19 inches in my back 316L stainless steel Harrington rod and a blood disorder that is known to cause bone pain. I think my bigger problem is metalosis the metal in my body has been know to leech rust into the body and cause inflammation.

Go see a nutritionist, they will help you with a diet that best suits your need. Your doctor should be able to recommend you to one.
