It worked for me, at least to some extent.,
This review is from: Foods That Fight Pain: Revolutionary New Strategies for Maximum Pain Relief (Paperback)
I've had osteoarthritis in my knees for some years. I read this book in the hope that it might help. Although it emphasised that most of the research had been done on rheumatoid arthritis, I decided to try its suggestions anyway. This involved going on quite a strict elimination diet for four weeks (not for ever, as a previous reader has suggested); then adding in foods individually to see if my arthritis was caused by an intolerance to any of them. Well, to cut a long story short, the elimination diet cured my pain to a certain extent, though not completely. And after another month of testing individual foods, I found that if I stay off eggs, oranges, bananas,and some milk products, the pain is lessened - but gets temporarily worse if I eat those things.
It seems to me it's worth a try for anyone with chronic pain for any one of a number of reasons. My only criticism - and the reason I didn't give it five stars - is that the author contradicts himself in places, and it's hard to read certain sections alone and out of context. I found I had to read the whole book and then make notes in order to work out what exactly I needed to do. But for me it was worth it!
