How to reduce inflammation in the body?

Posted on by Liana Garibyan 0 comments

Your immune system becomes activated when your body recognizes anything that is foreign—such as an invading microbe, plant pollen, or chemical. This often triggers a process called inflammation. However, sometimes inflammation persists, day in and day out, even when you are not threatened by a foreign invader. That's when inflammation can become your enemy. Many major diseases that plague us—including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer's—have been linked to chronic inflammation.

Foods to Avoid:

Try to avoid or limit these foods as much as possible:

  • refined carbohydrates, such as white bread and pastries
  • French fries and other fried foods
  • soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages
  • red meat (burgers, steaks) and processed meat (hot dogs, sausage)
  • margarine, shortening, and lard

Foods that fight inflammation:

Include plenty of these anti-inflammatory foods in your diet:

  • tomatoes
  • ginger
  • coconut oil
  • olive oil
  • turmeric 
  • chia seeds
  • flax seeds
  • vitamin d
  • green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, kale, and collards
  • nuts like almonds and walnuts
  • fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and oranges

By adding in the anti-inflammatory foods that fight inflammation and restore health at a cellular level, you can begin to repair the body without any drastic changes. Once you find foods that heal your body and satisfy your palate, you can remove the inflammation-causing offenders without feeling deprived.
