I haven't found eliminating those foods to be helpful in my case but I have found that cherries help with my pain.

To add to the mix, my GP is a osteopath and believes in "helping your body help itself"and she says that inflammation is rooted in alergies that our bodies have fought for so long that our auto immune systems have flatten out and destroyed the delicate balance of proteins, amino acids and anti bodies. Inflammation is a by product of all that.

I, myself, do not have inflammation. Mine is hypothyroidism, vitilago and lichen's schelrosis, all of them have auto immune causes. I know that arthritis (both kinds) is one of the accompanying conditions of FM. I have friends who suffer so much inflammation their joints actually feel warm. They constanly monitor what they eat so they can avoid as much pain and discomfort as possible but their doctors (& specialists) have never given them a list of foods.

Stress and pain killers can destroy your enzyme system and make acidic foods hard on your body. And, of course, anything done in excess is asking for trouble. As a teenager, 4 large cokes a day.....Who Knew!! Please remember that recognizing your own triggers is best. Each body handles food stuffs differently. Even not chewing your food well enough can put you out of whack. Data is wonderful. I use the web all the time and consider it useful, but I don't live by it. And, I don't let it make my decisions. I try to uncover the questions I need to ask my health care provider and determine if the data really pertains to me. Stay tuned. What is right today will undergo a study and be disputed next week.

Be blessed in your quest. Susie

I tried and it did not help me. My Uncle however lives by the Atkins (caveman type) Diet and he claims it helps reduce his pain and flareups.

I have heard the argument for eliminating deadly nightshades, potatoes, tomatoes and, eggplant (was there a fourth?). While I avoid them, I haven't found eliminating them completely helpful, but you may find it so. The inflammatory foods I avoid are sugar and, flour, and many processed foods. These foods create a clear pain spike when I eat very much of them.

Hi Everyone,

I have never been a Natural Health Nut about the food I eat except for eating a well balance meal according to the Old health pyramid - hmmmm - another topic. Well recently the subject of inflammatory foods keeps coming up.

I have been doing a little research on this and what food to eliminate. One group of these are the nightshade plants which include two of my favorite plants - tomatoes and egg plant. This really puts a kink in my diet to lose weight.

Does anyone here eliminate inflammatory foods from their diet and has it helped with their fibro pain?

Thanks, Jill
