I am wondering if anyone can tell me the difference and/or give me a list of flamatory foods vs. inflamatory foods.I would like to also know if it is different for each individual. I understand they have a lot to do with getting infections.

Since I read the following article last fall, I've been aware that some of the latest thinking around type 2 is that inflammation might be the *primary* cause of the disease.

From what I understand, the essential anti-inflammatory foods (most of which I learned from Toma) are:

Omega 3 Oil
Olive Oil
Lean poultry and fish
Whole grains with lots of fiber
Water (drink, drink, and drink water)
Green veggies (the darker the better)

I suffer from inflamation in several of my toes. It is very painful.
I did some research on the internet and found an article about foods and pain. It gave a list of anti-inflamatory foods and Inflamatory foods.
The list included all of the do not eat foods given for diabetics, only there were more added to the list.
I am determined to find out how I can overcome this.
Antibiotics work. But I am never given more than enough for 10 days. It works and 3 weeks later it ia back.
