CAN A SPECIAL DIET BE THE ANSWER?

Posted by grandmaR @grandmar, Sun, Apr 14 8:51am

I have been on-line (of course) and I've been reading up on foods that can cause inflammation to autoimmune diseases.
I am attaching what I found.
Please know that I am NOT in the field of medicine or nutrition in any way.
Also, I am NOT advocating for any programs or products.
Just want to share what I found.
Use your own judgement.

Have a HAPPY SUNDAY!
Ronnie (GRANDMAr)

Once diagnosed with PMR and understanding the important part inflammation plays, I researched to find all the anti-inflammatory foods/herbs/spices I could find. I've adjusted my diet to include as many as possible. I do believes it helps my condition, and of course cutting out thos that o cause inflammation such as sugar and processed foods.

Thank you so much for giving us the "diet". I certainly looks good to me and I have Lichen Planus. Any food suggestions will help us all with any of the immune diesases. Looks great to me. Certainly worth a try.

Before I became ill with PMR I ate a "good" diet of organic vegetables and fruit preferably heirloom, if I could find them at grocery store. What I cut out of this diet was the occasional sugar loaded sweet roll (treat) and other such items. I added more of the anti-inflammatory spices and herbs such as turmeric etc .I have not eaten beef for about thirty years and very little other meat. This morning I have a piece, about 4 ounces, of fresh wild salmon in the refrigerator for dinner this evening. For protein I rely on legumes, they have so much good "stuff: in them, in combination with other foods. I also eat an occasional egg. Eggs are my go to food when the cupboard is looking fairly bare. (need a trip to store) I believe each one of us has to work out his/her own food intake If that means going by a "set" plan such as paleo that is his/her decision, just not for me

Good morning!

Good for you, being able to go Paleo! I am trying to go the Mediterranean way. I love fresh fruit and veggies, but I have to make sure I get at least 80 grams of protein a day!
Have you found that you feel better since eating Paleo?
You are right, we all must find our own eating style that works for us and our lifestyle!

Happy eating for good health!

Apparently you misunderstood. I do not eat Paleo. I have formulated my own diet.
When I became ill, my doctor of over fifteen yeas, sad he didn't see how he could improve on my diet. I just cut out any and all sugar and the occasional processed food and increased anti-inflammatory spices and herbs.

Thank you for the information.
Other than taking a very low does of amitritalin (spelling?), to go into a deep sleep, I've never taken any other meds for the Fibro.

@grandmar I did Lyrica,Cymbalta,Savella all have side effects so I stopped them and rely on Magnesium I take and Meloxican for O.A

I had horrible side effects when I tried Cymbalta. Intestinal distress, no appetite, lost 8 pounds, and was really sick for several weeks. I take Lyrica without problems, but I’m not really convinced that it is doing much for me. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back in the 80s before a lot of doctors recognized it as a real disease. I am lucky. My doctor listens to me and is caring, kind, and thoughtful. The Fibro waves or flare ups come and go . Sometimes I am pretty down when I have a bad flare. Then suddenly I am well for a while and can hardly believe how wonderful it feels to be well. For those of you with Fibro, is that how your ups and downs work?PS I also have Raynaud’s and Sjogren’s
