One thing I learned is that caffeine can reduce the amount of iron your body absorbs by 1/2! I didn't know that!! Also, if any one comes across more articles on what to eat to fight inflammation please pass them along! thanks.

I am a strong believer that certain foods can cause flareups. For me, its the pesticides in non'organic produce and also all the preservatives used in prepared foods. I try to eat as organic and wholesome as possible. Fast food causes me to have flareups.
I did find that certain foods did cause my lupus to flare more and was very painful too. So now I do watch what I eat. I find that grains are my biggest problems and I have to be very careful with them. I can't eat wheat or corn. Some rice and oats but have to be careful or they too will cause my lupus to flare.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
