I have been reading The Inflammation Cure by William J. Meggs, MD., Ph.D.  This books says that heart disease, asthma, diabetes, arthritis and alzheimers’s can be linked to excessive inflammation in the human body.  Steroids relieved much of my asthma symptoms and the pain in my joints.  Changing my diet helped too.  I gave up processed foods and white sugar.  Now I am going to see what happens if I make some further changes.  This week I am going to eat fruits, vegetables, and fish.  No meat or wheat or dairy.  I will drink lots of green tea and water.  This is what the book suggests.  I will report back in a week about the effects of the changes, if any.
