I find that I feel better when I exclude wheat and dairy from my diet. It's difficult for me to be too strict, so I just watch it. I also try and eat meals that are rich in anti-inflammatory foods and herbs. Those include kale, broccoli, ginger, turmeric, peppers and garlic. I avoid red meat, but do consume chicken and fish in moderate amounts. Everyone is different, so it can help to experiment. I found out that I was sensitive to wheat and dairy when I was seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals. The MD I worked with at the time believed that life style changes could help the symptoms of Lupus. He completed a blood reaction test to immunoglobulin on me which revealed those two sensitivities. If I eat too much of those products, I do find myself more prone to flares and not feeling well. Hope this helps!
