The Best Foods for Fibromyalgia

The Best Foods for Fibromyalgia

– Hi everyone, my name is Jennifer and you’re watching NewLifeOutlook. I don’t believe that
there’s any perfect diet for people who suffer from fibromyalgia. And most of the time, for me, it’s very challenging to
know which foods to eat and which foods to stay away from, although there could be some foods that may help alleviate
some of the symptoms. Today I’m gonna talk about foods to avoid that may cause inflammation and foods that you can try eating that contain anti-inflammatory properties. Sensitivities to foods cause inflammation. Some of the most common
food allergens are dairy, gluten, corn, soy, preservatives
and food additives, especially in MSG,
alcohol, chocolate, coffee, citrus foods, nightshade
vegetables, including peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, and potatoes, nuts, shellfish, and refined sugar. Pay close attention to how
these foods make you feel. By eliminating some of
these foods from your diet for a period of about a month, and then re-introducing them, can determine which foods to avoid. Keeping a food dairy can help keep track of different foods that
may trigger your symptoms. Now we’re gonna get to my favorite, the anti-inflammatory foods. Some of these foods
include fresh fruit, beans, cold water fish, ginger, turmeric, dark, leafy, green vegetables, almonds, nuts, soybeans, seeds, seafood, unrefined complex carbs like
brown rice and rolled oats. Fresh fruits and vegetables are important to include in your diet
because they are useful in stimulating the immune system and also help reduce inflammation. Dark, leafy greens,
seeds, nuts, and seafood are rich in magnesium. Magnesium helps reduce
muscle spasms and pain. Preparing anti-inflammatory
foods and trying new recipies can be fun, especially when
they’re easy and tasty. I did a little experimenting and researching online different recipes that contain
anti-inflammatory ingredients. Here are two that you may enjoy. In this first recipe, I used
six ounces of baby spinach, one cup of shredded carrots,
one cup of garbanzo beans, one cup of quinoa, half a
cup of dried cranberries, half a cup of soybeans, two
tablespoons sesame seeds, and half a cup of pumpkin seeds. For this next recipe, I
used one cup of unsweetened almond milk, one cup
of frozen blueberries, one tablespoon ground flax seed, one tablespoon maple syrup,
and one teaspoon cinnamon. What are some foods that
trigger your symptoms? Some of the foods that I’ve found so far that trigger my symptoms are gluten, dairy, and citrus fruits. Also, if you know of any
anti-inflammatory foods that you’d like to share with us, I’d love to try them,
and maybe somebody else out there would love to try them as well. Thank you guys so much for
watching NewLifeOutlook and I’ll talk to you later. Bye. (upbeat music)

  1. I'm sensitive to gluten and added sugars. I have a sneaking suspicion I might also be sensitive to MSG.

  2. I definitely noticed a BIG improvement in my pain levels when I reduced/eliminated additives and preservatives.

  3. I'm lactose intolerant and pretty sure sugar worsens my pain. If I drink a coke my pain goes from uncomfortable to so high in about 20 minutes.
