Natural anti-inflammatories are foods that you can eat to lower your odds of having inflammation. If you have a condition that causes inflammation, it may help to change your eating habits.
Fruits and veggies: Go for variety and lots of colors. Research shows that vitamin K-rich leafy greens like spinach and kale reduce inflammation, as do broccoli and cabbage. So does the substance that gives fruits like cherries, raspberries, and blackberries their color.
Whole grains: Oatmeal, brown rice, whole-wheat bread, and other unrefined grains tend to be high in fiber, and fiber also may help with inflammation.
Beans: They’re high in fiber, plus it has antioxidants and other anti-inflammatory substances.
Nuts: They have a healthy kind of fat that helps stop inflammation. (Olive oil and avocados are also good sources.) Stick to just a handful of nuts a day, or otherwise, the fat and calories will add up.
Fish: Put it on your plate at least twice a week. Salmon, tuna, and sardines all have plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, which fight inflammation.
Herbs and spices: They add antioxidants (along with flavor) to your food. Turmeric, found in curry powder, does this with a vital substance called curcumin. And garlic curbs your body’s ability to make things that boost inflammation.
Do you eat any of these anti-inflammatory foods? Do you notice if they help?

These anti-inflammatory foods can be called healthy or alkaline foods in general, even though the above list is not exactly same as shown on Food acidity table. Drinking weak alkaline water much is also very effective to cope with inflammatory condition. Basically it is beneficial if we can get (-)ion rich foods.
Taking much fruits may increase the inflammation in some cases as they contain much sugar over anti-oxidant components. A proper combination of fruits, vegetable and whole grains will be good.
Thanks and kind regards.
