From the YourTotalHealth webpage: "Some foods may be worth giving up, even without an allergy. Meat contains a type of fat that stimulates the production of inflammatory agents in your body. Adopting a vegetarian diet may help. Patients with RA put on a vegetarian diet showed improvement within a month. A vegan diet may be the most helpful. For some people, giving up dairy products was helpful. The exception to the vegan/vegetarian route, is to include oily fish, particularly salmon, sardines, mackerel or other fish rich in omeg-3 fatty acids. According to Jean Carper in Food: Your Miracle Medicine, marine oils act directly on the immune system, suppressing 40 to 55 percent of the release of compounds called cytokines that help destroy joints. Fish oil capsules may also help. However, eating fish purchased from a trustworthy market will better guarantee the purity of the oil you are getting. Simultaneously, keep your intake of omega-6 fatty acids low since they may counter the effects of the fish oils. Do this by avoiding polyunsaturated fats such as safflower and sunflower oils and margarines made from them. Stick to olive oil and other monounsaturates. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory agent. Try including fresh ginger in vegetable stir-fries, eating food containing ground ginger or dissolving ground ginger in your herb tea."
