I recently began reading about the relationship of food and inflammation/pain. I realize that some of us are in so much pain we are lucky to get down a can of soup a day. But, I am so desperate, I'm willing to take into consideration that there are foods that act as medicine. I am about to start reading two books, "The Inflammation Free Diet Plan", and "Diet For a Pain Free Life". Of course, I don't ever expect to be pain free, but I'd like to do what I can to help my body heal. I found a website, "nutritiondata.com" that gives a full analysis of any type of food, including it's inflammation level. You can also type in your own recipes and it will give a detailed analysis of them. I also just started taking a supplement of tumeric because it has anti-inflammatory properties.
Just a piece of information that I wanted to share for anyone who is interested. Has anyone else explored this notion?
