Anti-Inflammation Tips

What exactly is inflammation?

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury and irritants. Most Americans eat a diet full of inflammatory foods (i.e. high fat, high sugar, processed, full of preservatives, artificial sweeteners), which can lead to obesity, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Over 40 years ago, it was recommended that people eat a low fat diet, which led to the increase in sugar for taste and flavor. Over the years, there has been a remarkable rise in all inflammatory diseases (heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes) directly linked to these high sugar, high processed foods and low fat diets. Eating foods in their natural state (certain fresh veggies, fruits, seeds, grass-fed meats, organic poultry, herbs) all naturally have anti-inflammatory properties.
