The antinflammation diet looks very worth a try, I will do it.
The complex plant polysaccharides you want are soluble fibre like pectin and inulin. Basically, you want to eat a diverse range of vegetables to support a diverse gut flora. The best (easiest?) source of omega-3 is fish oil, yeah.
The anti-inflammatory diet really isn’t all that different to the protocol here. It’s just a case of making sure fats are balanced and avoiding inflammatory foods like nuts/seeds and rice/oat bran. I think a reasonable amount of exercise is also a good idea for anyone trying to improve their health (not at the early stages of the protocol though).
Vitamin D seems worth a mention too. It’s a recommended supplement on the protocol, but to get a noticeable effect from it, you need to raise serum levels to around 60ng/ml. This could require high doses initially, depending on your current levels. The best way is to get serum levels checked and supplement accordingly. Deficiency is implicated in so many diseases, it’s something worth pursuing.
