I'd like to get some opinions on what supplements and foods can help reduce inflammation.

Do a web search on anti-inflammatory diets if you want.

However sometimes our Drs don't want us to do this -- because inflammation from an auto-immune disease isn't the same as other kinds of inflammation.

Also always let your Dr know of changes to food or vit/supp you try, they may not in indicated because of the treatment plan (meds) the Dr is using.

I tried all that and just ended up paying waaaaaay too much for groceries and supplements with not so hot improvement. Not to mention confused as all get out and stressed. Now my basic staples are my C's, D's, B's and omega threes. Pretty basic, rheumy approved (my rheumy anyway) and they rhyme which makes it easy!

I also try to eat healthy, drink too much water, sleep well and exercise. Easy, simple and common sense.

I've tried paleo, gluten free, raw foods.. you name it. They were all "pita diets" (pain in the ___)

I avoid crap foods for the most part and sometimes indulge in a big gooey slice of gluten, dairy and carb filled pizza or some chocolate or a glass of wine. Let's face it, having some weird disease is stress enough. Becoming your own food police is toooo much work in my opinion!!
