What are the most anti-inflammatory foods?
My scalp goes through flare ups of dermatitis and I want to add some extra anti-inflammatory foods into my diet to see if it makes a difference.
Fatty fish, crucifers, turmeric, berries. Avoid your standard non-primal stuff.
Salmon with cauliflower curry and blackberries for dessert.
What shampoo do you use? I had scalp and skin issues until i switched from regular soaps and shampoos to Dr. Bronners.

Also Practical Paleo advised to avoid nighshades and eggs in the anti-inflammatory protocols, but that's for joints...
Walnuts supposed to be good for inflammation as well according to the PP.
I've heard of Dr. Bronner's. I mostly use color-saving, sulfate-free shampoos and wash my hair probably three times a week. Next time I buy shampoo I'll have to try it out.

I hear you! I am starting anti-inflammation protocol tomorrow, since I am sick and tired of all the littl' inflammations that keep popping up since late April, and eggs elimination will be weird. But I think as long as I have a meat, shrimp and canned fish stack handy, I should be Okay.
I just posted a question about feeling bloated after a lot of cheats (rare for me, but I cheated big time). Eggs (whites in particular) were in the back of my mind. I find gently poached yolks in a lot of ghee or butter to be really good!
I'm back on my game as far as sticking with anti-inflam foods! I learned a hard lesson!
I've never eliminated eggs in my life, so I think I forego both whites and yolks for my 30 days.
Leida - that sounds like a good idea. I might try it. I just have a challenging finding a "replacement" for breakfast that keeps me satisfied. I'm sure it is possible!
Good luck on your 30 day!
