The easiest way to get rid of pain through your diet is by remembering a simple sentence:


What are CATS?

  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Sugar


  • Fried foods
  • Gluten

Why is eliminating CATS and their fried and gluten pain-causing friends so important?

If you have pain anywhere in your body, you have inflammation.

Experts estimate that about 70 percent of inflammation originates in your gut.

When you make the effort to eliminate your CATS and their pain-causing friends fried foods and gluten, you discover how much better you feel even without over the counter or prescription painkillers, NSAIDs, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Side effects of NSAIDs include:

  • Stomach problems, including bleeding, ulcers and stomach upset
  • High blood pressure
  • Fluid retention
  • Kidney problems
  • Heart problems
  • Rashes

Some people have so many other health issues that even their doctors advise against painkillers.

People who really should avoid pain-killing drugs include:

  • Anyone with decreased kidney or liver function
  • Patients with Crohn’s or colitis
  • Ulcers, gastritis sufferers
  • Asthma patients
  • GERD, acid reflux and hiatal hernia patients
  • Anyone allergic to aspirin, other NSAIDS
  • People taking blood thinners
  • Pregnant women
  • Anyone who drinks more than 7 alcoholic beverages per week or more than 2 per day
  • Over 65

If you read over this last list, you recognize that even medical doctors advise a lot of people either to go easy or lay off pain killing drugs completely.

And yet we still want to be pain-free. What to do?

As a long-term nutritionist, day in and day out I teach people how to heal their pain naturally without drugs.

Part of what I do is teach people the virtues of an anti-inflammatory diet and how you can eat in a manner that tastes good while also making you feel better.

Because I like to make things simple, I came up with a sentence even the most forgetful person can remember:


If you want to understand inflammation and your diet, you can look up the Inflammation Index at this link.

Foods that have a negative number on the Inflammation Index, such as:

  • French fries -51
  • Fruit cocktail in heavy syrup -49

Are PRO inflammatory and make you hurt more.

Foods that have a positive number on the Inflammation Index, such as:

  • Acerola cherries +342
  • Asparagus, cooked +38

Are ANTI inflammatory and make you hurt less.

Several years ago, one of my dear friends developed a head-to-toe rash.

She came to me in desperation.

I discovered what she needed to do to get rid of her rash was to get off sugar.

P.S., when she got off sugar because she was so eager to stop whole-body itching, she discovered that all her little aches and pains went away.

If you have been hurting all over or in specific places where you feel you can’t get relief, you might want to look at your diet.
