Prevent Excessive Inflammation the Natural Way
Our body has an amazing natural defense against illnesses. It can fight pathogens, dilute toxins, protect and repair damaged cells, and deliver much-needed oxygen and nutrients to our cells through the inflammatory process.
However, when the inflammatory response is excessive or out of control, it will do more harm than good. Some of the diseases brought about by this condition are acne, rashes, asthma, peptic ulcers, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, or sinusitis.
Prevent excessive inflammatory response by avoiding foods that exacerbate inflammation. These are processed and grain-fed meats, farmed fish, gluten, dairy, grains, refined carbohydrates, fried foods, and margarines.
It is important to have a diet high in foods with natural anti-inflammatory properties. These are: grass-fed meats; wild-caught fish, fruits such as nuts, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, cherries, and tomatoes; olive oil (not cooked); green leafy vegetables; and herbs such as turmeric, cinnamon,cloves, ginger, sage, and rosemary.
A diet change is an effective way to assist yourself back to optimal health. A mediterranean diet, for example, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is rich in nuts, seeds, grass-fed meats, healthy oils, and fruits and vegetables. It is great for longevity and fighting off illnesses.
