Limit your intake of spicy foods, alcohol, coffee. Limit salads and other raw foods during flare ups. Avoid fried foods. Take care not to get too hot or exhausted in the spring and summer.
Emphasize vegetables – vegetable soups, cucumber, cooked cabbage, cooked greens. Teas: peppermint, chamomile, dandelion, chrysanthemum, red raspberry leaf, American ginseng. Spices: seaweed, orange or tangerine peel (in tea or soups).
