The Benefits of an Anti-Inflammatory Diet
A Modern Day Plague
Did you know that eating an "Anti-Inflammatory Diet" can help reduce inflammation and its symptoms?
Chronic inflammation is usually a result of how we live. The modern diet is comprised of fats, sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and chemicals that can injure the body's cells and tissues. Many health concerns have been linked to inflammation such as:
v Heart Disease, even with a normal cholestoral level, you can still have a heart attack.
v Auto-Immune Diseases, including RA, Psoriasis, Osteoporosis and Eczema
v Aging skin
v Irritable Bowel, if your body is out of balance your digestive track becomes inflamed causing digestive problems
v Obesity, your body and brain can become resistant to the normal effects of Leptin, insulin, and coritsol, which spark weight gain
v High Blood Pressure results in stiffening of arteries
v Depression, energy is used for fighting a losing battle of inflammation, taking energy away from "happy" chemicals, like serotonin
Fortunately there are things that you can do to reduce inflammation!
v Chiropractic Benefits your body by helping to remove fluid buildup which allows blood to flow more freely
v Eating anti-inflammation foods which consist of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, Vitamin E and foods high in Antioxidants
v Chocolate? Yes, Chocolate. Cocoa and dark chocolate are powerful anti-inflammatory foods!
