I am curious as to what other foods may have anti-inflammatory properties - I have read in this forum about pineapple, kiwi, papaya and mango as well as spinach and seeds. Does anyone know of other foods with this property???

Omega3 oils - fish, flax and Udo's - are well known for their ability to reduce inflammation. Fatty fish like salmon works, but you'd have to eat alot of fish to get the same dha and epa dose you can get from a tablespoon of oil.

Garlic, olive oil, turmeric, cinnamon, cloves and green tea are all meant to be anti-inflam too.
Are you trying any other kind of diet (like SCD or low residue) as well? Many foods that I've found on anti-imflammatory lists are ones that are on the don't eat lists of those diets....

Foods high in Omega 3 fats.
EV Olive oil-high in oleic acid
Spinach, brocc, cauli, brussel, kale- all contain antioxidants and Vit C, many other nutrients for building body's own
Cherries and Blueberries- contain compound that reduce inflamm
Spices like Turmeric and ginger, garlic
Green tea- at least 1 cup a day.

If you really wanted to seriously power up try this recipe:

Grilled Salmon with EVOO, oregano and garlic salt to taste.
Chopped fine Tossed salad with above veggies with EVOO to dress and sunflower/pumpkin seeds.*
Mix up frozen cherries, straw, blue into a bowl and mix with some honey pour over lactose-free ice cream for dessert.*
1 glass brewed green tea sweetened with honey or stevia powder.
1 digestive enzyme to help digestion. Probiotic if desired.

*Be careful with the seeds in the sunflower, straw, blue if you are sensitive to these.

Enjoy...

Thanks for the meal idea!!! That is awesome!
I do know that cauliflower actually irritates my colon, but the salmon meal sounds great!

UcWarrior what is your secret to living Med free. How extensive was your UC.

Princesa are you taking the things prescribed by Jini Patel Thompson on her site. Does the aloe vera juice and oregano oil make a big difference.
UC diagnosed 2003 after birth of first child
ASACOL, VSL #3DS and Remicade Infusions started April 2008 after flare.
Had two major flares requiring hospitalization: Aug. 2005, April 2008.
Left sided UC. Currently in remission

The supplements I take are in my signature. I think all of them have been helpful in different ways, but I'd say probiotics have been one of the most helpful. George's aloe helps with gut healing and wild oregano oil helps rebalance the gut as it's antiviral, antifungal and antimicrobial.

I agree with princesa. No real secret. Managing UC med free is like taking the parts off wrecked cars and building a racecar. Wrecked diets, wrecked supplements, wrecked therapies all produce a valuable little part that can be used to work in your favor.

Eventually you get to a point when you can drive that car, but you can still customize even more to make your car more efficient.

Probiotics, fiber supps, protein, digestive enzymes, exercise, antifungals. Use what works for you.

Cherries and cherry juice are old time anti inflamitory foods for goute. And I know those mixed with sunflower seeds always kicked my goute right out. dang near next day. If I had a serious goute flare up, thats all I would eat or drink for ONE day. Sunflower seeds and cherry juice. That and Ibuprofen. Ahh the good old days when this was my worst problem and I could still take Ibu. Those days are gone now. LOL
