Inflammatory foods

Photo by Carly Kaste


Elimination diets can be sooo helpful to find the foods that are causing inflammation and thereby causing you pain in your joints, headaches, muscle aches, sinus pain, etc They're not the same for everyone, but for folks with joint issues/ diseases there are some  foods that are much more common offenders.

Watch the gluten, wheat ,barley, rye, and even oats (even gluten free oats) dairy and eggs of course...

But when people eliminate the wheat, eggs and dairy...many add in corn, white potato, gluten free grains /oats (broken down to sugars), and sugar ...these can also cause inflammation.

Some foods that cause pain, in many with joint problems, are beef (not sure if grass fed beef would be less inflammatory- seems to be a plausible theory), tomatoes (and other nightshades- eggplant, white potato, bell peppers etc),  bananas, and peanut butter.

When you do an elimination diet, pay special attention to these foods if and when you add them back in.

Chronic Illness and Marriage from Focus on the Family


A really great article on chronic illness and marriage. I saw a statistic that 75% of marriages fail, when one partner is diagnosed with a chronic disease. Life changes when one is diagnosed and some parts of marriage life must be mourned. Also one of the "best" ways to cause your relationship to fail is to "bother" the chronically ill spouse saying things like "Why don't you do more/work more.? Are you REALLY sick? Please read the article below.

Top Ten Reasons Why I Should Get To Eat Whatever I Want

This is my hardest thing to get across to folks. Why do people want to eat things that don't agree with them...or they don't even want to admit or even try to find out what is "stressing" their bodies and making/keeping them ill. They just want to eat what THEY want to eat!

 Part 2 should also be changing the rest of your lifestyle...not ONLY what you eat....
