What is an "Anti-inflammatory" Diet?
So yesterday, we spoke about one of my favorite ways to start my day.
And that was with my "anti-inflammatory" breakfast drink.
So today . . . let's talk about "inflammation" . . . the "silent killer" . . .
Now . . . what exactly is "inflammation" and how does it affect the body???
Well . . . "inflammation" is a process by which the body's white blood cells "protect" us from "infections" from outside and/or inside the body. And these invaders that infect us can be bacterial, fungal and/or viral.
So what are the main causes of "inflammation" you ask???
Well . . . science says . . . the most common reasons for "chronic inflammation" are . . . "autoimmune disorders" like lupus, where the body attacks healthy tissue or . . . from exposure to "toxins" like pollution or industrial chemicals.
And the signs of too much "inflammation" in the body would be . . . redness, swelling, heat, pain and loss of function.
But . . . that's just what we see and feel on the outside.
What about what's lurking deep within us . . . that we can't see or feel???
Well . . . first let's discuss the different kinds of "inflammation" so we better understand.
You see . . . we actually need "inflammation" in the body because it's essential to our healing system.
But . . . when there's too much "inflammation" in the body at any given time . . . this becomes a problem for our health and healing process.
