I was going to post an article about the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet that limits the number of acidic foods eaten… but then it turned into an advertisement for some fruitloop drink or other and I changed my mind.
However, I’d still be interested in following up the diet / nutrition idea after a little more research since it’s something I keep coming back to. My aunt, who has Lupus, has managed to control her symptoms for a long time through cutting out certain foods and I’m sure many of those would come under the ‘acidic’ category – citrus fruits, dairy, alcohol, etc. She’s the one that advised me to switch to soya products, which definitely helped reduced my pain levels, so much so that I’ve kept it up for over five years now.
So let the research begin…

The Top 10 Anti-Inflammatory Foods You Need to Know – an article that I think is worth a read since it also lists foods to avoid, but here is the top ten just incase:
- Wild Alaskan Salmon
- Shiitake Mushroom
- Green Tea
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Sweet Potato
Some new ones there, I wonder how many different lists there are…
