Fighting Inflammation with Food
Doctors and people alike are learning that traditional NSAIDs are not the only way to fight inflammation caused by injury.
Many professionals are turning to more holistic methods by providing nutritional protocols to help people reduce pain without damaging their internal organs
There are four Anti-Inflammatory powerhouse foods that not only pack nutritional force but can really do an amazing job of reducing your pain by reducing inflammation!
1. Green Leafy Vegetables
This can include vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collard greens.
These veggies are nutrient dynamos that help fight inflammatory conditions through phytonutrients.
How this works is the phytonutrients force your liver to release various enzymes to break down the inflammatory toxins in your body.
Due to its high levels of omega-3 oils inside the fish, Salmon allows the body to better recover from injury.
Just be sure that your fish is from a wild caught source so that it has the proper fat balance.
Turmeric is a root that has a brilliant marigold color and also has amazing anti-inflammatory properties.
The active ingredient in the turmeric root is called curcumin.
Curcumin has shown to be incredibly beneficial in treating the symptoms of the following:
- Crohn's disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Stomach Ulcers
Powerful in polyphenols, olives have been known to lower blood levels of C-reactive protein.
This ability is a key marker for determining the likelihood of inflammation throughout the body.
