Okay, so today . . . let's talk about what foods will help to put out the "fire" of "inflammation" in the body.
So here we go . . .

OILS/BUTTERS - (unrefined, organic only) avocado oil, almond oil/butter, coconut oil/butter, ghee, olive oil, walnut oil and NO CANOLA OIL OR VEGETABLE OIL (these are the biggest offender of Omega 6 fatty acids)

SWEETENERS - Manuka honey (400) and Yacon syrup
Now . . . there are other foods that fall into the category of being "anti-inflammatory" that I didn't list . . . why???
Because . . . they're NOT also "compliant" for eliminating the "bad" bacteria that lurks deep within us.
You see . . . it's a fine line we walk when trying to correct the body's "internal dialogue"
And "totally" understandable as to why we are "soooooo" confused as to what to eat.
We're not in a one side fits all situation when it comes to our health and correcting it.
You see . . . when we go to see our healthcare provider . . . and let's use "inflammation" as an example . . . they let us to go on an "anti-inflammatory" diet. Which is correct . . .
BUT . . . they don't tell us the reason we're inflamed in the first place is lack of "good" bacteria in our body and therefore . . . we "must" also eat a diet that "doesn't" feed the "bad" bacterial that causing the havoc and "inflammation" in our body.
Most "anti-inflammatory" food lists don't take into consideration that we're also fighting a "bad" bacterial overgrowth and/or "lectin" issue in our body.
That's why many times we are still confused as to why we "still" don't feel well after trying a new diet food plan.
So tomorrow, I'll give you one of my favorite "anti-inflammatory meals" (with recipe) so you can better understand that we "can" still eat a lot of food, feel full, correct the body's "internal dialogue" and put out the fire of "inflammation" in the body all at the same time with "COMPLIANT" food.
And if you're still confused as to what "compliant" means . . . it's the ability to "follow rules" . . .
You see . . . a "compliant" FOOD is a food that follows the rules of being "anti-inflammatory", "antifungal” “antibacterial”, "organic and non-GMO" and/or "non or low lectin".
And a “compliant” PERSON or BEHAVIOR, is a person that follows the rules of “NUTRIENT PATTERN EATING” to accomplish their mission of reaching their goal of optimal health.
And if you freaking out that you can't have your favorite "whatever" food . . .
The point to this kind of a diet or "pattern eating" is to put back the "good" bacteria in the body and correct the body's "internal dialogue" so you CAN have those favorite foods in moderation.
