Here are some tips for reducing your inflammation. Let us know if we can help you!

When attempting to improve your health through food it’s important to understand a few things, there are foods that cause inflammation, foods that reduce it and many foods that do some of both or neither

Chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease. Inflammation on the surface of the body is local redness, heat, swelling and pain. This is how the body heals itself, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. When inflammation persists it damages the body and causes illness.

Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (pesticides, smoke, etc....) can all contribute to chronic inflammation. Dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term disease risks.
