The anti inflammatory diet is one that strikes fear in the hearts of many. What is it? Are companies and/or people just out to make money promoting it? 

Anti-Inflammatory diet:  A list of anti inflammatory foods include:

a. Berries: especially dark reds and blues like strawberries and blueberries

b. Vegetables-darker the color the better, including dark green kale and spinach

c. Whole grains-including oatmeal, quinoa, barley and farro. Avoid sugary or starchy foods that jack up your sugar level.

d. Healthy oils-found in nuts and fish. Saturated fat found in full fat dairy and meat fuel the inflammatory fire.

General rule of thumb: if it has a label, stay away! 

The Weston Price diet is similar. Dr. Weil's program is similar. 

The body responds to many conditions by initiating the inflammatory cascade. Foods can really make a difference.  Do you need supplements?
