An anti-inflammatory diet should help....as well as the Omega oils....and fish oils.
Thanks to everyone that have answered my questions. I will be passing the info on to my daughter.

The Zone diet put out a book on the Anti-Inflammation Zone that sounds almost exactly like the one above....I follow that and when not in a flare....feel pretty darned good. This last one is probably because I slipped up and messed with what I was eating...it really makes a difference.
They do mention in the book about the inflammation factors with auto-immune problems, and especially Lupus and MS, ADHD, as well as Diabetes and Heart Disease. When you get into the science behind it, it makes a lot of sense.
The Essential Women (health food stores) is a great source of the Omega 3-6-9 oils..in liquid form. Not the best tasting, but you get used to it quickly. Liquid form gets into your system that much more quickly.
I believe that lots of the viatmins and minerals are important too, but make sure to study up on the right ones, and go mostly organic if you can. Same with foods....all natural/organic is absolute best. Expensive beyond belief, and I am not able to afford most right now...but, try hard to stick with that route!
Happy Eating all!!

SFnative82-Did you also eliminate or reduce grains (bread,pasta)? I'm wondering if it was the yeast in the canned/processed foods that bothered you. I cannot tolerate them either. Also, why do you not eat chicken? Interesting.....
I also agree that all processed foods are the bane of our foodstuffs. Glad you have gotten well. Keep spreading the good word :)
