What is an "Anti-inflammatory" Diet - continued


Okay . . . so today let's get down to the nit and grit of why we feel like "SH__"


No more putting it off for another day, month or year . . .


It's time to get SERIOUS about our HEALTH!!!!!!


And I can't stress enough . . . the role that "inflammation" plays in our health.


As we can now tell from yesterday Health tip . . . "inflammation's" not just about "arthritis" . . . as many people associate it with.


It's about everything that happens in our body. Even "anxiety"!


Now . . . one of the biggest complaints I hear from my clients is this . . .


My HORMONES are out of whack . . . how do I fix them???


Well . . . guess what???


More often than not . . . the root cause of our "hormonal imbalance" is . . . you guessed it . . .

"INFLAMMATION"!


And this "inflammation" . . . that causes this imbalance starts in the GUT before spreading throughout the body.


And "if" we can't control the "inflammation" in our body . . . then the outcome is everything from damaged healthy cells, tissue and organs to damaged DNA, tissue death and internal scarring . . . with all of these being linked to the development of several diseases including cancer.


With this . . . "chronic inflammation" causes hormonal changes especially with the hormone "insulin".


Now . . . when "insulin" levels rise . . . it puts the brakes on "burning" fat for fuel and encourages fat "storage" from the food we eat.


And this is due to carbohydrates causing "inflammation" in the body . . . the body never has a chance to burn its own fat, making weight loss almost impossible.


Okay . . . so the question for today is this . . . How do we get rid of "inflammation" in the body???


Well first . . . stop eating "inflammatory" foods!


Also adding foods high in the antioxidant called "polyphenols" will help to lower the "inflammation" that pledges us.


So what foods are high in "polyphenols"???


Well . . . that would be . . . all types of berries, cherries, plums, red grapes, onions, turmeric, green tea, spinach and kale.


Now . . . these foods and regular "light" exercise will protect the body against conditions linked with "chronic inflammation", especially heart disease and obesity.


So what else can help???


Well . . . as I said . . . eliminate "inflammatory" foods . . . meaning foods that contain high levels of omega-6 fatty acids. Also reduce our sugar intake and manage stress.


And drinking lots of water and staying hydrated is probably one of the easiest ways to reduce "inflammation" in the body.


Consuming "omega-3 fatty acids like in cod and salmon can help fight vascular inflammation which is a significant risk factor for heart disease and heart attack.


Some other easy ways to reduce "inflammation" are drinking parsley and ginger green juice, lemon and turmeric tonic or organic bone broth.


So tomorrow let's continue and find out why it's so important to stay hydrated
