That's very interesting! Thank you very much for sharing that.

I can certainly vouch for the TURMERIC. I can tell the difference within 24 hours of stopping my turmeric intake. I dissolve about a teaspoon in a glass of grape juice (the tastes work together - don't ask me) and chug it down daily. Really seems to help my gut and joints.

Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning, gastritis symptoms, horrible right hip and low back pain.

I always add it to my batches of home made Soups. Dr Andrew Weil recommends it as a powerful anti-inflammatory,
I quite like his approach to health and well-being.

You might enjoy reading, "The Inflamation Free Diet Plan", by Monica Reinagel, www.books.mcgraw-hill.com is the publisher, ISBN 0-07-146471-9.

This book touches on the same info as the article you posted. Be ready for some suprises on the inflammation "factors" of the various foods!

I wish I could say I have implemented this diet, but for the most part I already enjoy alot of the foods that are mentioned in your article and this book. Have a good read!

I am SO glad there is much more research and information about food and CD and inflammation, etc. Alot of the info sounds very similar to the Maker's Diet. In fact, the first part of the diet encourages to eat lots of berries. It also says that dairy isn't good unless it's a live yogurt/cheese/or whole fresh cheese type product.

Thanks for the sharing the article.

thanks for posting that article. Those recipes sound nummy. It's nice to know that we can still eat flavorful food and have it help with the inflammation

national institute of ayurvedic medicine
 
try looking up chinese herbology too
 
there is alot of info on these sites about different herbs used in traditional medicine.
 
one problem with these sites though is that, you must do your own search on the internet for papers on each plant. it is very hard to find studies of the effectiveness of the herbs.
