Eat Right to Fight Inflammation

Eat Right to Fight Inflammation

Inflammation is your immune system’s response to injury or infection.  The inflammation process cleans out damaged tissue and sets the stage for healing to begin.  But if something interferes with the complex chemical balances of the immune system, the body fails to produce anti-inflammatory responses.  In this case, inflammation becomes chronic.

Eating to prevent chronic inflammation is not complicated — an anti-inflammatory diet is in line with the smart food choices your doctor at Chiropractor for Life already recommends for patients to maintain optimal wellness.

When it comes to preventing chronic inflammation, two foods are best avoided altogether:  Trans fats and sugar.

Instead stick to the basics such as:

  • Vegetables and fruits
  • Dairy, eggs and meat
  • Essential fatty acids found in fish and some nuts and seeds

Certain spices are also revered around the world for their medicinal qualities.  Two of these are proven effective against inflammation:  turmeric and ginger.

The negative effects effects of chronic inflammation can range from allergies to life-thhreatening diseases.  Headaches, back pain and neck pain may also be a sign of chronic inflammation.Dr. Barbara Smith
